I can’t believe I’m still in playoff position. Usually by this time I’ve been eliminated long ago. Kind of like my Tiger-cats. :lol: :lol:
Toronto @ Edmonton: I don’t know why I keep picking Edmonton; they never fail to disappoint me. But there’s no better remedy for a losing streak than playing the Argos. In the last two weeks, they’ve broken Edmonton’s 3-game losing streak and Hamilton’s 4-game slide. One game may not be a “streak”, but Edmonton should again find a cure for what’s ailing them. Esks by 2.
Saskatchewan @ Hamilton: Tough game to call. The Riders seem to find a way to win (or tie) even when the game appears lost. With Kevin Glenn at QB, though, the Ticats have put up some big numbers on the road against two good defences. And despite two huge losses recently, the fact remains that Hamilton plays their best football at Ivor Wynne. Cats in a squeaker.
Calgary @ B.C.: How fitting it seemed to a Ticat fan like me that an interception thrown by Casey Printers cost the Lions their last game. If injuries to Pierce and Jackson mean that Casey will be their starter the rest of the way, I don’t expect to see many more wins in Vancouver. Meanwhile, Good Hank has finally returned, and after being MIA for over a month, is not likely to give way to Bad Hank again any time soon. Could be a scary Halloween night for the Lions. Stamps by 10.
Winnipeg @ Montreal: Okay, let’s be honest, we were all stunned at the Bombers’ win over the Als. Even you guys who picked Winnipeg knew it was a longshot. Could it be that the Alouettes aren’t as good as we thought? Certainly their defence has looked about as alert as a Northwest pilot on a flight to Minneapolis these last couple of weeks. But if getting a scare put into them wasn’t enough to wake them up, then losing certainly should be. Montreal doesn’t lose two in a row, doesn’t lose twice to the same team, and doesn’t lose at home.
