Definitely not.  I'm so far behind in the pool that my only hope is for what I think are two upsets.

WPG by 2.5 majors
BC - the tiggies just seem deflated without Banks and I don't see what they are going to do; but BC is so hot/cold that this one is a toss up

Wpg - If the refs do their job and call the Sask O Line for holding instead of letting it go like they have done.

I've been meaning to update the holding thread.  The last 3 weeks or so the refs have amped up the holding calls after nearly a whole season of crickets.  I think they wanted to get their holding standard back closer to normal for the playoffs.

I'd be more concerned about SSK holding on STs.  Man oh man does SSK hold and IB almost to a man on STs.  Their great return game has nothing to do with the returner: it's all cheatin'.  Hopefully the refs get strict on them, but I'm not holding my breath.

Most of big punt returns have some sort of hold or IB within the return that was missed. Calling holding on a snapped play from centre is relatively easy compared to moving downfield on the run to cover a play that's moving very fast in the open field, with officials farther away from the play than the Ump and Ref are, hence, things get missed. And players know this....

SSK players do.  WPG players don't have the memo yet.  MOS's guys play very honest, and that's fine, but it's a disadvantage against a perennial cheater team.

I think the key to ST holding/IB is to just not do it on the gunners, nor on the point of attack unless there's a ton of guys around.  But away from the ball every single ST blocker should be holding their guy like crazy.  And since someone being held can't reach the point of attack, you effectively neutralize that defender.

SSK has perfected this to a fine art, as return game and D is all the have to try to win games with.

Officials MOST of the time, get the block on the back on the gunner at the point of possession, again most of the of the time. Where they miss the foul is the hold on the next block. Are missed holds and blocks on the back challengeable?? I guess even if they are they could almost challenge every punt return

BC @ Hamilton - The Ticats haven't looked good since Banks went down.
Winnipeg @ Regina - Close game. Could go either way. Turnovers win it for the good guys.

I never actually said I think they will win.... I said someone needs to pick them.... Grin Grin Grin Grin

For the way the teams are right now, it will be an absolute upset for the Riders to win.  We have seen that before.  Rarely...but it does happen.

If there was money...it would be on the Bombers.

Hope you enjoy your day and the game.

Thanks Trapper.  I'm liking Regina too.  Has some restaurant chains we don't have in WPG.  Your roads are a lot better now that most of that construction is done.  I was here 2 years ago and it was a mess.

If you think WPG wins you should put money on it since Vegas has SSK as the faves.  They must be looking at history and the home crowd rather than team completeness.

Looking forward to a great game!  For the W!

So ... there's a chance....

There's a chance, if the football gods bestow their favors profusely and solely on SSK.  We tried that approach the last two years with our league-leading ball-hawking high-scoring D, and the gods abandoned us in WSF.  WFC worked solely in the off season on getting the team fundamentally sound on all facets, more like a '13-'17 CGY, than relying on tricky D, like a '18 SSK.  In theory, WPG approach should pay off.  We shall see!

Regardless of who wins, they need to go on next week to cream CGY.  I want CGY out of the GC this year.

Here's to a good game with all the die-hard cold-hardy SSK fans.  Try not to throw any beer on us Blue fans... it's too cold, it'll freeze us solid.
