We're going to know by Saturday around 3:30PM whether or not the Lions will have to fight for 1st place or if Edmonton and Calgary hands it to them on a silver platter by losing their games. That would be the best case scenario. Worst case scenario is that both Calgary and Edmonton win their games and the Lions tie or lose on Saturday. That would be worst because we just got our playoff tickets in the mail and the Lions would be playing away. But I'm not going to jinx the game on Saturday.
The game between Winnipeg and Calgary is one we should be watching with special interest. This QB Tate looks very good. I'd much rather have Burris in at QB. He's very predictable. Go back and read some of Gridiron's appraisals of this guy Burris and what his weaknesses are. But alas, I'm quite sure Tate gets the start on Saturday. The game is in Calgary which should delight Calgarians. The Bombers have a potent defense and lead the league in QB sacks. QB Buck Pierce can can be a one man wrecking crew if he's healthy and avoid injury in the game. Brink could fill in quite well too. I'm looking forward to see if the Bombers will be able to drop Tate on the old keester. [translation: give him a good a** whooping]
What makes this game even more exciting is that Calgary and Winnipeg are both playing for all the marbles- aka 1st place, a bye, and a birth in the Final. If Winnipeg wins they take1st. Montreal cannot take 1st. Calgary of course wants to win and hope that both B.C. and Edmonton lose their games.
