  • 11 defensive TDs, 15 return TDs

    Thought this record was worth a shoutout to our defence. Hope I got this right, I think 11 TDs and 15 total returns tie with the 1987 Lions for best all time.

    Been a phenomenal year for the defence. Imagine how much better they'd be if they had more rest during games, too!

      It could have been 12 D TDs. The D picked a pass on Labour Day and got it down to the 1 (or 2). The O then punched it in.

          It is. 11 defensive TD's actually ties the CFL record.

          I don't know what the previous Rider team record was but going back to 1981 I don't remember anything like this.

            I thought I heard we ranked 2nd in time possession?

              3rd behind Calgary at 30.42. 5 seconds behind Calgary who are at 30.47.

                Yes, but Pencilmeister would say that the one against the Shmoes doesn't count.

                  Mostly by our defence's own hand as we lead the CFL in defensive two and outs. We're also near the bottom in going 2 and out offensively too.

                    Doesn't matter: The Winnipeg defence is better than ours... did we throw a shutout?? So sayeth the highly objective as well as mighty fans of the fabled franchise and soon to be GC Champs, the Blue Bummers. The GC parade route has already been planned to loop repeatedly around Doublemint Drive in Winnipeg...

                      Don't be silly.
                      Everyone knows they are going to have the same parade route that they used in 1990 for old times sake.
