Call me crazy, however I personally feel by the time the final whistle sounds in the Labour Day game we will be 5-4. At the very least 4-5.
If we keep improving the way we have for the past couple of weeks I say will will have a very positive result on Sept. 3rd. The Al's the week before that, we should be able to handle. The Eskimos on Aug. 11th... Oh ya we can do that. The home and home against Winnipeg, we can win both, at the very least we will split.
When the final whistle is blown on this season is when the knives should come out mercilessly if deserving. But till then I believe and support this years Ticat philosophy of an 18 game season to be judged as a whole and objectively. This is a team on the rise, a team that will win, a team that will further earn respect and win the cup. :thup:
i think we'll at least split home and home withe peg. and i'm thinking 3-6 but still alive for the playoffs where i think we'll need to finish 2nd because of the potential of a west crossover. either way labour day will be huge as the next week in toronto.
You're CRAZY!! Yup, the team played a better game against BC (after 3 putrid efforts) but you can't assume that the improvement will continue. More likely, it will be a season of ups and downs for the Cats and their track record suggests that it will be a lot more of the latter than the former. And even if the Cats generally show improvement, so will the other teams. Like the Cats, they'll be looking for late NFL cuts, fine tuning playbooks, moving guys in and out of their lineups, etc. etc. looking to get better.
However, because it doesn't look like any team in the East will run away with it this season, even a mediocre record will get you into the playoffs. So, I think the Cats have an outside chance at a playoff spot and that would be a huge step forward if they can manage it.
I think the Cats will finish well if you look at the 1st 4 games.. the D has lowered the opposition scoring in each game
Calgary 37 pts
Toronto 30 pts
The D is coming around very nicely, and I've noticed the O-Line is coming around as well now all we need to do is put up more than 1 or 2 majors per game and we'll start winning.. I think once the Cats get the 1st win... they'll go on at least a 3 game streak.. confidence will promote a winning attitude
