The Edmonton Eskimos have been the most successful franchise in modern era (since 1954). They have 14 Grey Cups (second all-time) from multiple dynasties including a three-peat between 1954 and 1956 and an unmatched five straight from 1978 to 1982 with their most recent in 2015. Maybe even more impressive is their unfathomable 34 straight years of making the playoffs between 1972 and 2005. They are one of three community-owned franchises in the league and have some of the most passionate fans.

Edmonton Eskimos Record
1949 marked the official establishment of the Eskimos although there were other Edmonton Eskimos teams as early as 1895. The Eskimos have also enjoyed the best attendance rates in the CFL since the Commonwealth Stadium was opened in 1978. 1989 marks the last time an Eskimos player won Most Outstanding Player, the longest drought for any CFL team at present.
The Eskimos went on a hot streak and never looked back last season but with all the player and personnel movement this season, they may be hard-pressed to repeat such a feat. The Eskimos have lately gotten the upper hand against provincial rival, the Stampeders after being swept in 2014 but the Roughriders have stolen some of their thunder by poaching their head coach and players.
Losing Grey Cup-winning head coach, Chris Jones to the rival, Roughriders hurts but losing a few free agents alongside him hurts even more. The Eskimos primarily still return with most key players intact. Mike Reilly will have to stay healthy for the most part and both offense and defense will have to prove last year’s Grey Cup win was no fluke. The defense in particular carried the team especially during Reilly’s absence. New head coach, Jason Maas has a lot of work to do.
Repeating as Grey Cup champions is tough to do in this day and age. Only the Montreal Alouettes between 2009 and 2010 have repeated in the last 18 years but it can be done and the Eskimos have all the right tools to do it. Provided Mike Reilly is healthy for the most part, the offense will produce and the defense will remain sturdy. The Eskimos are only two seasons removed from their league worst 4-14 record so the ceiling and floor for this team is quite distant but should lean on the more positive.
