A couple of these have been made in the last couple of weeks but have been immediately buried so I figured I'd make another predictions thread that everyone can post on as there is 9 days to kickoff! Mods can feel free to put a sticky on the thread so we can check back in November who was the closest in there predictions. If not that's fine too. (Reminder that if you are making record predictions total wins must = 81 and losses must = 81 for it to be a legitimate prediction.)
(Ricky Ray stays healthy for 16 games, Emery anchors the defense as the Argos easily claim a weak east)
(Smith has his ups and downs, defense bails them out a couple of times on route to a winning record)
(In more of a surprise pick, Collaros struggles, QB controversy ensues, Ticats never get into a rhythm)
(In a respectable first season the RB's string together some nice victories but lack of cohesion sets them back)
(Tate and Bo Levi rep in and out most of the season, Cornish bails them out a few times, winning record likely)
(Slow start holds back the Riders, hot finish saves them, Durant pulls it together to go from 7-7 to 11-7)
(Rielly stays healthy behind new Oline, they start to win the close games they lost last year)
B.C. 7-11(Glenn brings them to a respectable start as Lulay heals, the loss of Moore hurts more than people think)
(Willy has his struggles as Winnipeg starts hot but suffers a mid season losing streak that derails playoff hopes)
East Semi Final: Montreal OVER Hamilton (Smith has a rough playoff game with 2 picks but gets bailed out by supporting cast)
West Semi Final: Saskatchewan OVER Edmonton (13th Man too much for Rielly to handle as Durant steps up to the plate once again.
East Final: Toronto OVER Montreal (In an offensive explosion Ray picks apart Montreal on route to 2nd Grey Cup appearance in 3 years.
West Final: Back in the frigid temperatures of Calgary Durant struggles to find rhythm as Calgary avenges last season's playoff choke.
Grey Cup: Calgary OVER Toronto: Not what I would want as a Rider fan but Tate/Mitchell and high octane offense with Cornish is too much for Toronto as Calgary edges Toronto in one of the most exciting Grey Cups in recent memory 41-35.
Durant has a 8+ TD-INT Ratio
No Rider runningback rushes for more than 700 yards this season
Getzlaf and Taj Smith have 1000 receiving yards
Brakenridge nets 8 interceptions.
You don't have to go into this much depth if you don't feel like it but I want to hear your predictions for teams and players as well!
There will not be a clear cut favorite heading into the playoffs, plenty of inconsistency will be displayed by teams this season but it will be an exciting one.
