    Steinberg's MMQB: Let the sprint begin
    Pat Steinberg,

    Just three weeks remain in the 2013 Canadian Football League season with much still to decide. Coupling Week 16 results and the remaining 12 games on the schedule, it’s outstanding to see there will be zero meaningless games in the final three weeks of the season. Even the two teams who likely won’t be playoff bound this year can relish the role of spoiler down the stretch, so bring on the sprint.

    Eastern Promises

    We’ve written a number of times this year about the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. This is a team that can show so much promise one week before looking like a completely different team the next. While that certain trait has leveled off a tad as the 2013 campaign has grown older, it still remains a worry for anyone involved with this Tiger-Cats team. Yet, even knowing consistency hasn’t been their strong suit this year, there may not be a scarier team to face in the East Division playoffs.

    First off, it’s important to point out Hamilton still is playing for an automatic berth in the East Division Final. Their home-and-home sweep of the Argos puts them just one game behind division leading Toronto with a tiebreak going their way in head-to-head meetings. The Tiger-Cats put themselves in a very good spot winning their final two games against the Argonauts, because that won them the season series. The fact they had success against a division opponent shouldn’t be any surprise, though.
