While watching the Calgary/Montreal game today you couldn’t help think you were watching the prequel to this year’s Grey Cup. Both teams played hungry and matched each other stride for stride. Either team could have won the game. I think Hamilton and Winnipeg both have a good shot coming to British Columbia for the Grey Cup but I’m wondering which match up would offer the best and most entertaining game.
The Lions would be a good bet given the way they’ve turned their season around. They are poised to take 1st in the West and have a bye into the Western Final. They will meet either Edmonton or Calgary or possibly both if they don’t finish in 1st place. Though they got stomped on by Hamilton last week the Lions can take Hamilton. Hamilton’s QB Glenn can be very good but he can be flat too. I believe the Lions are the better team. A Winnipeg/Lions match up could be very exciting. Both are leading the league in QB sacks. Winnipeg has Pierce who at times has looked sensational but is injury prone. Brink can be a good fill in.
Edmonton’s Ricky Ray has problems going deep these days and is missing his mark more often than not. Calgary’s Burris appears to be on his way to another team but Tate his back up may be just what Calgary needs.
Calvillo is always a smart QB with all sort of things in his little bag of tricks. Should Montreal get in again it will be a chance at a threepeat [3 Grey Cup wins in a row]
Thoughts guys on which two teams would make for the best Grey Cup match up?
