The B.C. Lions, who really ought to decline the honour the next time someone suggests they play a post-season game on the road, simply mailed it in on a perfect late-fall afternoon in Calgary.

A 12-6 season under Wally Buono, full of encouraging moments and emerging stars, was comprehensively pancaked within 30 minutes, by which time the Stampeders led 32-0 and cheap jerseys it was all over but the coaches’ challenges.

Of course, that’s not giving half enough credit to the 16-2-1 Stampeders, one of the very best football teams this league has seen, let alone a three-year-old Ottawa Redblacks franchise and its 41-year-old marvel of a quarterback, Henry Burris.

However, the losers might choose to rationalize the carnage, the CFL’s No. 1 team will be in Toronto next Sunday to vie for the old silver grail with the Grey Cup’s last chance to be saved by some semblance of a home rooting interest — Redblacks’ fans being close enough to buy all those unsold tickets, if they travel.

In Ottawa, it began as a picturesque snow-globe kind of game, reminiscent of the 1996 Doug Flutie-led Toronto win over Edmonton. It looked like a rout at halftime, 17-3, probably wasn’t as close as the 35-23 final score indicated, and even descended briefly into comedy at halftime when efforts to remove the inches of accumulated snow from the field at TD Bank Place also removed the line markings.

The machine that might have repainted them froze up, and the sidelines had to be delineated by hand, in red, with little orange cones for added visual cues. It was charmingly, endearingly CFL.

There was nothing endearing about the Stampeders’ maltreatment of the Lions, unless you’re a fan of baby-seal clubbings.

“We have fresh legs. You could see it: we’re out-running cheap NFL jerseys these guys,” Stamps quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell said at the half.

He then qualified his remarks by saying the Lions are a great football team and we better not let up … you know, the things you’re supposed to say so you don’t look overconfident. But he had it right the first time.

The wholesale NFL jerseys difference in speed between the Stampeders and Lions was startling, a testimony to three weeks without a game to play while B.C. had to grind it out against Winnipeg in the semifinal. With six or seven weeks to work on expanding the playbook since the last meaningful game, Calgary’s … um, rookie head coach Dave Dickenson came up with a superb plan that Mitchell turned into a surgical dissection of B.C.’s defence.

The ultra-confident QB might be the unanimous pick as the CFL’s most outstanding player on awards night this week, and played like it Sunday.

Meanwhile, there were only new wounds to lick for the Lions, whose previous two road playoff games were 50-17 and 35-9 losses to Montreal and Calgary, respectively, and now have thrown in this 42-15 turkey to hang in the air like flatulence in an elevator through the off-season while they try to sell season’s tickets for 2017. That’s 127-41 aggregate, but who’s counting?

Wally Buono, whose task now is to build on the positives of the regular season while trying to make the fan base forget the disheartening ending, started Travis Lulay at quarterback to begin the second half. But even though he engineered a touchdown, a subsequent interception was all it took for the old coach to give his head a shake and realize it would be very bad optics to end the season with the club’s future, Jonathon Jennings, on the Miami Dolphins jerseys bench.

Nothing was going to change the result, in any case. The Stamps would have beaten any team in the league on this day. Maybe not any team ever, but most of wholesale jerseys them.

What is the soundness of linebacker Solomon Elimimian’s surgically repaired Achilles? Elimimian didn’t play in last Saturday’s exhibition game in Regina and has been rested in practice when showing obvious signs of fatigue.

While the Achilles seems fine, Elimimian tweaked his hamstring Tuesday and didn’t participate in Wednesday’s final two-hour practice at Hillside Stadium. His participation Friday (7 p.m., wholesale jerseys B.C. Place) is doubtful.

“It has nothing to do with his Achilles,” cautioned head coach Wally Buono. “It’s important to make sure he’s 100 per cent for next week (Lions open the CFL regular season June 25 against visiting Calgary).”

ROOM FOR TWO FREE-AGENT RBS?: Eat up the clock. Keep the defence on the field and the rival quarterback playing toss on the sidelines. From the pages of history, Anthony Allen would like to believe the Lions could use a two-back or alternating one-back system that might allow both he and Jeremiah Johnson to make the roster. But that seems unlikely.

Allen, who missed the Regina game because of a “lower body” injury, realizes he has to show something special Friday, since Johnson appears to have the inside track to replace Andrew Harris as the starting tailback.

“I think any team needs two good backs,” Allen said. “Just to keep people fresh and the nature of the position. People get banged up. It’s an 18-game season. You don’t want to have any drop-off when the backup comes in. This game (Friday) is very important for me, because I’m in a running back competition. It’s a battle.”

CHANGE AT NICKEL?: Rookie defensive back Louchiez Purifoy came to the Lions with some baggage — he’s had disciplinary issues at the University of Florida and with the Indianapolis Colts, which caused him to be suspended and waived — but he is a big-time talent at the age of 23. (He declared for the NFL draft at 21).

Normally a cornerback, Purifoy has been moved to nickel back and could supplant Steven Clarke, who was expected to fill the position when Josh Johnson left for the NFL (Jacksonville Jaguars). “He’s a guy with a lot of potential, a guy that has a lot of ability, obviously,” said veteran halfback Ryan Phillips. “He’s trying to improve every day.”

“The past is the past,” Purifoy explained. “Most likely I’d still be in the NFL. But the B.C. Lions have given me a chance to play ball again. I have no problem with that.”

SO, HOW’S THE O LINE?: It’s huge, propelled by tall foreheads, mighty legs and motivated by the preachings of position coach Dan Dorazio. But the starting situation in a couple of areas is fluid. No. 1 draft pick Charles Vaillancourt appears to have cheap NFL jerseys wrested the starting job at right guard from veteran Kirby Fabien, at least for this week. And there is minor concern for right tackle Levy Adcock, who had an X-ray taken of his knee earlier in the week, the same one that was ‘scoped in the off-season. Adcock sat out Wednesday’s practice and was replaced by rookie Antonio Johnson on the first-team unit.

ARM BEHIND JENNINGS, LULAY?: Third-string quarterback hopeful Keith Price had the thankless job of starting the first, chaotic quarter of the first pre-season game last Saturday. He cheap jerseys played mainly behind a second-string offensive line, saw his stat line drop because of receiver bobbles and looked ordinary — an unfortunate circumstance, in that he has been much better Washington Redskins jerseys than that in camp. Price is unlikely to get much of a re-do Friday, however, as starter Jonathan Jennings and 1A Travis Lulay will see the bulk of the snaps against the Stampeders.

“Heads were on wholesale NFL jerseys swivels … I had a lot of rookies on the field with me,” Price explained. “That’s just part of being a quarterback — trying to elevate the players around you. Obviously, I didn’t get a ton of time or opportunity. But that’s just the way it is. You’ve got to take advantage of those opportunities when they come. Next time I’m on the field, it will be a different story.”

Now, the 2014 first-round pick is among the league leader in sacks, the emerging star for a defense that has pushed the Chiefs into AFC West contention, and he's the one having all the laughs.

"That's human nature for athletes: The more you play, if you work hard, you get better at things the second time you do it and the third time you do it," Ford said. "But every player doesn't get better every game, but hard workers do. It's a testament to that."

The Chiefs were roundly criticized for drafting Ford with the 23rd overall pick two years ago, when he was rated a second- or third-round talent by many. The Chiefs already had Justin Houston and Tamba Hali at outside linebacker and many other needs on a team in the midst of a rebuild.

Those critics only grew louder when Ford rarely got on the field as a rookie.

But when Houston got hurt late last season, Ford was pressed into the starting lineup. He responded with three sacks in a game against Wholesale San Francisco 49ers Jerseys Oakland and another in the regular-season finale against San Diego, then helped Kansas City win its first playoff game in more than 20 years.

That first-round pick nobody seemed to want? He's been crucial to a 6-2 start.

That's because Houston wound up needing surgery in February for a malfunctioning ACL, and he isn't expected back for at least a few more weeks. Ford has been starting in his place, providing the only real pass rush for a defense that has been carrying Kansas City most of the season.

"He's been playing hard. He's giving you good, hard snaps," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "It's a tribute to him. He's taken a lot of heat, so it's good for him to get a little bit of taste of this."

Ford has had at least a partial sack in five of the Chiefs' first eight games, including a 3 1/2-sack performance on Oct. 30 in Indianapolis. He also had the Chiefs' only two sacks in a 19-14 win over Jacksonville on Sunday, and nearly had a third when Blake Bortles managed to throw the ball away.

His fourth career multi-sack game gave him nine sacks on the season. That's only a half-sack off Von Miller's league lead and was tied with Buffalo's Lorenzo Alexander heading into the Bills' game Monday night.

"There's no way in our league that you can be an effective rusher unless you're just relentless. It just can't be done," Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said. "He has such great speed that if a quarterback does step up or does step out, even if it's away from him, he can track them down. You have to be relentless within the play, and then, cheap nfl jerseys relentless within the game."

One reason for his success rushing the quarterback is his vast improvement in other areas. He was rarely asked to drop into pass coverage at Auburn, and he San Francisco 49ers Jerseys struggled to set the edge against the running game when he made it to the NFL. But shoring up those areas has made him a more complete player.

As a result, Ford stays cheap jerseys on the field more and has more opportunities to get after the quarterback.

"A year ago I think he started to become a better overall player — the run game, pass coverage, all that," Sutton said. "Then, I think this year, he's kept that thing going and made some really big plays for us in the wholesale nfl jerseys pass game. Now, I think he's taking his pass rush game and he's improved that."

NOTES: Reid said QB Alex Smith will start Sunday at Carolina. Nick Foles replaced him against Jacksonville after Smith sustained a head injury against Indianapolis. ... RB Spencer Ware could be ready to face Carolina if he passes the league's concussion protocol, Reid said. Ware was inactive Sunday. ... There is an outside chance Houston (knee surgery) will play this week. He will be added to the roster by the deadline Wednesday, unless he experiences a setback.
