Well, BC goes to Hamilton, seemingly without a QB (due to injury), and Edmonton goes to Calgary.

Judging from their previous meetings and the history of the crossover, I say the home teams win this weekend. BC more than any other team has limped into the playoffs.

I expected Winnipeg to lose, but they just did not bring it. How many passes did Bowman just drop? Bishop did not have as much help as he should have, and predictably, started making increasingly bad decisions.

Calgary at Sask west final, and Hamilton at Montreal east final. Two games in which all bets are off. Hamilton lit up Montreal for over 500 passing yards last time they met, and before Saturday, it was a one point win and a tie for Calgary and Sask head to head. Do not think we will see Dressler again this season though, no one can heal that fast.

I'm going to make my predictions here, just for the fun of it:

Semis: Hamilton beats BC, Calgary beats Edmonton
Finals: Hamilton beats Montreal, Saskatchewan beats Calgary (both will be super-close though!)

Grey-cup: 20 year redux, with the Riders winning their fourth cup.

well my bombers are out so I don't really care but montreal sure looks like they are on a mission but the ti-cats look hot right now. I hope ottawa gets their stadium deal approved by city hall this week to bring back the other rough riders!

I really hope they finally get going on an East coast team. Then if Ottawa gets going again, they can put Winnipeg back in the West, and the Rough Riders can play them 3 or 4 times a year instead of just twice.

Quite surprising that Hamilton lost, that is only about the second time in History that the crossover team has even won a game. I am going to go with the home teams again, Saskatchewan and Montreal final. The crossover team has never made it to the division final, and they won't this year either. It is the most difficult possible road to the Grey cup.

Some of you may be aware of the Landsdowne Live proposal to the City of Ottawa that would see the CFL return to Ottawa. Landsdowne Park was the home of the Ottawa Rough Riders. Yesterday, the City Council voted for a proposal that would see the construction of a new stadium paving the way for a CFL team to begin play in 2012. Sounds ambitious but it may be pulled off. This is good news for CFL fans everywhere.

Well, it is official. Montreal vs. Saskatchewan for the Grey Cup. Saskatchewan started a bit jittery, but once they settled in, Calgary had no chance.

The difference between the two squads is the QB. Durant is young, and has visibly improved with every outing. Calvillo is actually in decline, and at most will play 2 more seasons, before being forced out by his own club like so many top pivots who have gone before. I am actually beginning to think that Durant may have progressed far enough to win a championship in his rookie season.

I am picking Saskatchewan, they have been getting stronger and stronger all season, winning against tough opponents down the stretch. 43-10 on July 18, 34-25 on Aug. 21, so if the trends continue, it should be 25-40 on Grey Cup Sunday.

Fluke! The Roughriders go down in the Grey Cup & end up 4th next year. But then again I'm a Stamps & Red Skins fan.

Saskatchewan in clearly becoming the dominant team of the west division. 2 Grey cup appearances in 3 years is pretty good, and they have lots of young talent to keep them going for the next decade. We will be seeing more Sask Grey cup appearances, and a possible dynasty if they can win a few.

Right now, the Riders have the finest corps of Canadian receivers ever assembled. If they can hold on to that, and build on it, they are in fine shape going forward. I just wish someone could find a Canadian QB. I think there has only ever been one.

Congrats, Als.

28-27 Grey Cup game. Definitely a classic and will go down in history as one of the best.

I was all fine & dandy watching the end of the game when the Riders handed the Alouettes the game. So I thought who cared until the announcer congratulated the province of Quebec & suddenly I thought what a blow to Canada. No doubt a bunch of separatists will declare this a victory for the nation of Quebec & a victory for socialism over capitalism.

Doubtful, the Als have an entrenched federalist spirit to them (they play in the *C*FL after all!). Congrats to Anthony and the team, but what a heartbreak...till next year I guess!
