Even though the Lions have won four straight games, B.C. is not all up in their own head.
“We’re not feelin’ ourselves by any means because we still need a lot of help and we still gotta help ourselves,” head coach DeVone Claybrooks said.
The Lions late season rally has kept a playoff spot mathematically possible. If B.C. wins all three of their remaining games (at Edmonton, home to Saskatchewan, home to Calgary) and Edmonton looses the remaining contests (home to B.C., home to Saskatchewan, at Saskatchewan) the Lions are in.
But the Esks have the brooms out for their Week 18 match up against B.C. Edmonton beat the Leos handily in Week 2 and Week 5, claiming the season series already headed into the third and final meeting of the season.
We have a little cleaning to do next Saturday…

“We know that Edmonton is a formidable team, they dominated us both games. And they’ve already put it on record that they’re getting their brooms out,” Claybrooks said.
“Thanks for the bulletin board material. Like I need to get my guys crunk anymore – appreciate that.”
For the uninitiated, crunk means very excited or full of energy. B.C. should be jacked up for the playoff-like tilt at Commonwealth Stadium Saturday night.
