In CFL week 7 I went 4-4 with my predictions and hopefully this week I can finish with at least 5 wins. I wasn’t expecting such high scoring in a couple of the games and the Lions have proven to me that they have nothing left in the tank. We also have a new team at the top of the power rankings this week after the Alouettes lost to the Stampeders.

Calgary Stampeders (6-1) now have the best record in the CFL and it doesn’t look like anyone can stop them. Calgary is off to their best start in a decade and they have all next week off to gear up for their week 9 tilt against the Lions. This past week the Stampeders beat-up on the Eskimos 56-15. Reynolds and Cornish combined for 21 carries, 153 yards and 1 TD in the game. Burris also had a great game, as he went 21 for 29 in the air with 305 yards and 3 TD’s.

Montreal Alouettes (5-2) lost a crucial game this past week against the Argonauts by a score of 37-22. They haven’t moved down in the power rankings yet, but if they lose next week, expect them to fall a place or two. Montreal has given up the 2nd least amount of points in the league and has scored the 2nd most amount of points thus far this season. Calvillo had a monster game going 37 for 49 in the air with 450 yards, 3 TD’s and 1 INT, but their running game was terrible.

Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-2) dominated the Lions this past week and although most people expected this, it’s still a solid victory. Durant has been having an MVP season in Regina although he looked shaky against the Lions, as he only completed 18 of 27 passes for 223 yards with 1 TD and 2 INT’s. Durant had a good game on the ground though with 9 carries for 67 yards and 2 TD’s. Cates also ran the ball 13 times for 61 yards and 2 TD’s.

Toronto Argonauts (5-2) have set themselves up nicely to take the lead in the East Division if they can beat Hamilton and Montreal losses to the Blue Bombers. Toronto tied the season series with Montreal this past week at 1-1 thanks to a solid offensive performance. Cleo Lemon only threw the ball 19 times and had 13 completions, which was good for 269 yards and 3 TD’s. Boyd struggled on the ground, as he only went 63 yards on 17 carries with 1 TD and 1 fumble.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (3-4) beat the Blue Bombers by a score of 39-28 last week and it’s the 2nd win in a row for Hamilton against Winnipeg. The home team was expected to win the game, but Hamilton pulled off the upset. Glenn went 18 for 26 through the air with 274 yards, 3 TD’s and 2 INT’s. RB Cobb was busy as well with 86 yards and 1 TD on 22 carries.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-5) are last place in the East Division right now, but due to the weak West Division they’re still not in the bottom 2 of our power rankings. I expected Winnipeg to win last week, but they lost to Hamilton at home and now they need to travel to Montreal this week, which won’t be easy. Jyles went 14 for 22 through the air with 227 yards and 2 TD’s. Buck Pierce also got to play and he ended the game going 7 for 12 with 63 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT.

Edmonton Eskimos (1-6) move up one spot this week even though the Stampeders destroyed them. Edmonton beat the Lions in week 5 and the Lions have been looking terrible, which is why I made the switch. The Eskimos used 3 QB’s in last week’s game and none of them looked that great. The rushing duties were also split-up and I think the reason is because the Eskimos are looking to shake up the team by making some changes. Let’s hope they can find a winning formula soon before they run out of time.

B.C. Lions (1-6) have looked terrible ever since losing Casey Printers to injury and it goes to show you how important a single player can be on certain CFL teams that lack depth. B.C. decided to go with Jackson at QB last week and he struggled, throwing 18 for 31 with 194 yards, 2 INT’s and no touchdowns. Robertson and Davis both broke the 80+ yard mark rushing, but it wasn’t close to enough to beat the Roughriders.

    To say that Cory Boyd struggled against Montreal is a joke. It is precisely because Montreal paid too much attention to him in order to halt his ground game that the Argos did so well. For example on one ground play all 12 Als went to one side of the field pursing him that the Lemon ran for 13 yards in the other direction. The Als concern for also contributed to Owens success in gaining 130 yards and scoring 2 TDs. The failure to recognize Owens contribution, Argos’ gang tackling and stout defence means your description and ranking of the Argos has no validity.
