Maybe this is a bit early, considering Montreal has half a game to come back, but man the three eastern playoff teams look to be in disarray right now. Of these three which team looks like it has the best shot going into the playoffs of making it to the Grey Cup?
Either way whichever team represents the west has to be considered the favorite at this point.
It's always the west dominating the east. The east has teams folding in Montreal and Ottawa, but none in the west.
If I were in charge of the CFL the playoff pairings would do away with keeping the east separated from the west. In other words, the playoffs would be aligned where you would not guarantee an East vs. West matchup in the Cup.
I would be more happier having the two best teams in the league facing each other in the Cup even if they were in the same division.
Once again, the east division sucks. Always has.... Permanent losers.
Makes for a boring cup eh? How dumb are the fans that insist on an East vs. West Cup???
The east division is the Democrat/Michael Dukakis division -- handouts/welfare state division. The west division is the Republican/Ronald Reagan division -- leaders/legends/strength thru a commitment to excellence and the realization there is no free lunch.
This is the 2nd time you have pumped the Bummers tires.. what is it you see in this team that has you so high on them??.... the were almost as equally bad during the 2nd half of the season as they were good/lucky during the 1st.... arguably the 2nd half is the half you want to finish strong on.....
The CFL would be better off having all eight teams in one division. The east division is like set-a-side jobs in the government sector. They need to earn their playoff spots...and home field advantage. Do away with the division setups.
What do you see in the other two teams that lets you put them above the Bombers at this point? He didn't say the Bombers look good, but certainly the opinion that they have the best shot at making it to the Grey Cup in the East isn't that ludicrous.
Winnipeg. Not because they're any better, but because they have home field avantaged and a bye to the East Final. It's so incredibly obvious how to beat the Alouettes. Put pressure on AC and he craps the bed. It's no coincidence he's had his worse games of the season against Winnipeg. BC's proving that theory correct. Two best rushing D-lines.
The Bombers have matched up extremely well against Hamilton and Montreal this year though, winning all but one that came down to the final second of the game. Many of these games were in the last half of the season.
