TORONTO - The British Columbia Lions aren’t scaring anyone these days, except perhaps, themselves.

They finished the 2012 regular season with a flashy 13-5 record, first place and a first-round bye.

Very impressive.

Except, somebody forgot to explain that to Kevin Glenn and the Stampeders who manhandled them in the West Final. And, for the Lions the good times seem to have dissipated along with those misplaced champagne dreams.

The 5-3 record isn’t horrid. In a West Division dominated by the Riders and Calgary is however, mundane. The Lions are the most inconsistent team in the CFL, although the Argonauts may yet give them a run for that dubious distinction.

Where much of Toronto’s concerns have been on defence, in B.C. it has been the offence that has sputtered.
