CFL Video: CFL 1978-Western Semifinal-Winnipeg Blue Bombers @ Calgary Stampeders: Short Clip

This post was originally posted at FRS Daily Times on WordPress

At first glance, those Calgary Stampeders uniforms, look like the Atlanta Falcons uniforms of the 1970 and 80s. And Georgia Bulldog uniforms of any period. With the red helmets, red jerseys and gray pants. 38-4, sorry if I give away the score to anyone who is actually interested in this game who hasn’t seen it yet. But the announcer was talking about how good the Stampeder defense was in 78, especially their front four. And comparing it to the Edmonton Eskimos front line as well. Which was a big part of all the CFL championship success that the Eskimos had in the late 1970s and early 1980s. And when you give up four points in a CFL playoff game, you either have a great defense, or you’re playing a team with a poor offense. The Blue Bombers scored 371 points in 1978, in sixteen games. So they could obviously move the football and score. Only the Eskimos beat the Stampeders in the CFL Playoffs in 78, in the Western Final. So they had a very good team in 78.
