My position is the same as Hassal's. The Als have 4 weeks to go before the East Final. They have nothing to gain in the standings but they MUST remain sharp. The next 2 games can be viewed as "heavy" practises. The only difference is that it's not the practise squad facing the team, it's a real team trying to prove something.
For some reason, the Als have been notorious finishers in the big game, and this goes back years if we check the number Grey Cup appearances versus Grey Cups won. While this season and several past seasons have been great successes in terms of standings, number of points, individual stats...etc., the main point for me is winning the big one. By way of analogy the Habs, during the Glory Years, seemed to thrive in post-season play. This is where champions step up to the plate.
So, for the next 2 games, the Als have to play with some urgency. This includes running good pass routes, hanging on to the ball...etc. For the D line, some pressure on the QB, adjusting in the secondary... The bye week is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, the injured players can lick their wounds, but it's also one more week without meaningful game experience.
In a previous post ("Playing possum?"), one respondent mentioned the final game against the Argos. I agree some of them play dirty, and this could be devatating where injuries to key personnel are concerned. While still playing some first stringers, I would send in the substitutes liberally in that one.
