The media have once again climbed on the bandwagon to declare the Ottawa Redblacks the winners of the East Division Final in Ottawa on Sunday against the Tiger-Cats.
From CBC Sports: http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/r ... -1.3327340
The host Ottawa Redblacks (12-6) will defeat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (10-8) in the East final on Sunday at TD Place.
Welcome to the Henry Burris show, where everything the 40-year-old Ottawa QB does affects everything else and, if you need it, he can do a killer impression of a hoser.
A killer impression of a hoser? Seriously, Wow the hoser better show up Sunday or get hosed by the Tiger-Cats!!
CFL Match Up Prediction: Advantage Ottawa http://www.cfl.ca/article/2015ef
CFL Pick Em Centre for the Eastern Finals and TSN say Ottawa Redblacks favoured at 81% to Hamilton Tiger-Cats at 19%
The CFL writers in favour of Ottawa, Steinberg, Landry, Morris, Nye, Cauz, Dunk
The Lone CFL Writer in Favour of the Tiger-Cats, Pedersen
In a battle of Hamilton's elite defence vs. Ottawa's high-flying offence, both the writers and fans are giving the nod to the future Hall of Famer in Henry Burris rather than first-time starter Jeremiah Masoli.
Masoli showed well in leading a comeback victory over the Argos in the Eastern Semi-Final, but Burris is the leading candidate to win Most Outstanding Player and at age 40 is having one of the best years of his career. The REDBLACKS also have the mental edge of having already beaten Hamilton twice late in the season, while they also have the added benefit of being well-rested and healthy coming off the bye.
The Ticats will have their hands full but will be sure to make it a battle, especially with a scrappy defence and special teams that can turn the game in an instant.
