I'm a little nervous about the general Cockiness I'm getting from the vibe here, and even myself I have to admit.
Anything can happen in a one-off game. So even if we were the favourites, which I don't think we will be, nothing can be taken for granted.
At this point I'm going to give MOS a pass as a coach and hope that he's keeping the guys focussed. We're so close to achieving a desperately-needed goal that if he needed a back rub I would fly to Winnipeg on my own dime and massage him.
As far as the strategy goes against the Riders on Sunday, I think it's simple. Play clean football and have a balanced attack. We can't just run the ball between the tackles, we have to bring in big Chris, we have to throw the Deep ball occasionally, we have to keep the defense honest. If lapo calls a game like he did in the second half on Sunday I'm confident we will do okay.
More than anything at this point, I'm just really hoping things turn out well and I can't provide much in the way of strategy or even commentary. It actually wrenches my gut thinking about how close we are to playing for the Grey Cup in Calgary, 20 minutes from where I live. I want this for our city, I want this for our fans. I don't care how they win. Just win.
