Rouge, White & Blue CFL podcasts co-hosts Os Davis and Joe Pritchard can’t believe the 2016 CFL season is drawing to a close, but gobs of intrigue remain. On this episode of the RWB, we break down the playoff scenarios going into week 19; no spoilers, but let’s just say that, while the East is still up for grabs, the BC Lions, Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Edmonton Eskimos are in such a position that any of them could finish second, third or fourth in the West division.
While Joe may not believe in personal awards for players, Os is willing to debate that race for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie, a “race” that is pretty much already down to Alex Singleton of the Calgary Stampeders and the Bombers’ Taylor Loffler.
As for last week’s games, Os and Joe discuss the importance of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats win over the Ottawa RedBlacks and BC Lions topping Edmonton – a pair of monkeys off collective backs there. Also (incredible as it sounds) is longtime CFL veteran Ricky Ray playing for his job? And with another injury to the Calgary Stampeders’ offensive line, are the seemingly invulnerable Stamps possibly beatable?
We also preview next week’s games, with some hesitance and disagreement on the RedBlacks-Blue Bombers game; Joe is about as cautiously/nervously optimistic as Chicago Cubs fans at this point.
