I’ve often said the beauty of the Canadian Football League is that 66% of the teams get in to the playoffs.
If a team is playing decent football for most of the regular season, then playing their best football starting in early October, then that team has a shot at a Grey Cup championship.
With three regular season games to go – and 13-1 and 1 Calgary on the horizon – the Riders are not playing their best football right now.
Three weeks ago, the Riders fell behind by a 17-0 score before beating Ottawa.
Two weeks ago, starter Kevin Glenn struggled to a point where Brandon Bridge had to lead the team to a win over Toronto.
Then on Friday, the Riders let a 12-point fourth quarter lead get away to the RedBlacks at home.
However, the Riders have played decent football to this point and still have three weeks remaining in the regular season to get to playing great football.
Again, this is the beautiful thing about the Canadian Football League.
