TORONTO — Can Trevor Harris parlay his epic Semi-Final performance into an Eastern Final upset? Can the great Dane lead the Ticats to the Cup? How will Winnipeg deploy their pivots? Is Cody Fajardo’s health a factor in the lead up to Sunday? All of these questions and more tackled in this week’s Swoop Airlines Ariel Report.
Its rare that there is so much attention placed upon the status of a backup quarterback but that is exactly the situation the Blue Bombers were in last week when Chris Streveler’s absence from practice was documented. A few days later and all the speculation was for good reason. Streveler was a difference-maker for the Bombers in Calgary and the one-two punch of he and starter Zach Collaros is what makes Winnipeg’s QB situation so unique.
On the opposite side of the Western Final matchup is the division’s nominee for Most Outstanding Player who is looking to put an exclamation mark on a remarkable season … should he play. Not unlike Streveler last week, Cody Fajardo’s injury remains the talk of the province in Saskatchewan.
CFL.ca’s Brodie Lawson and Chris O’Leary paint the picture here:
The East story is a little more clear but no less interesting as Trevor Harris enters Sunday in Hamilton after posting a performance for the ages versys the Montreal Alouettes. His counterpart is Dane Evans who is proving that just because the starter (Jeremiah Masoli) goes down, doesn’t mean that that production should fall off.
