The two divisional finals have a lot of intrigue.
Out East, we’ll find out which quarterback will lead their teams to a Grey Cup for the first time. Trevor Harris in Ottawa is trying to give the nation’s capital their third Grey Cup appearance in the first five years of existence. He watched Burris do it, now he wants his kick at it.
Jeremiah Masoli finally got his shot at the helm of a team and led them to this point, where the Tiger-Cats after blowing out the Lions last week seem primed to make their third Grey Cup appearance in the last six seasons.
Out West, the Stampeders know how to get it done in the West Final on home turf, winning three straight West Finals at McMahon Stadium. It’s next week that has caused problems recently.
They take on a team from Winnipeg, who entered the playoffs as the hottest team in the league and cooled off the Riders last week. Also, there is a sense Winnipeg could finally end their 28 year drought without a Grey Cup.
My picks. Ottawa out East, Winnipeg in the West with both games coming right down to the wire.
