There were doubts that Calgary wouldn’t make it to the big game, as the Stampeders spent three weeks resting and relaxing, thanks to a pair of bye weeks in the CFL playoffs, according to the CBC. The quarterback, Bo Levi Mitchell, had gone a whole month without throwing a ball. Yet, when Halftime showed Calgary leading 32-0 over the Lions, all criticism was silenced.
“I knew from moment I woke up that we were going to walk out here and look like this,” said Bo, acknowledging that their domination came from plenty of hard work. “I know we made it look easy. It wasn’t. It was two tough weeks of game planning and preparation and guys coming in and executing at a very high level.”
That high level is why the Stampeders are considered the early favorites in the game, per the CFL’s official website. Ottawa might have more receivers with 1,000-plus yards this season, but that’s the only major edge the Redblacks have over the Stampeders. From a defensive line that has stopped running backs in the tracks and left quarterbacks buried in the turf, many expect Calgary to bring home their eighth Grey Cup (and second in the last three years.)
Who do you want to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Ottawa can pull off the upset, or will Calgary be too much for the Redblacks to contain?
