it's still very early, and these rankings will become more accurate in time.
1-Calgary - Cornish ran all over last year's west division leaders in a dominating win
2-Saskatchewan - Made short work of the eskimos. Sheets made it look easy.
3-Montreal - Managed to get through a fired up team in a very loud stadium.
4-Toronto - as great as they looked offensively, they looked horrible on defence and special teams coverage.
5-Hamilton - looked much the same as last year; put up tons of points, but allow more.
6-Winnipeg - fed off the crowd and almost beat the mighty alouettes. perhaps they won't be as bad as everyone thought?
7-B.C. - really had their tails handed to them. Calgary showed them who's boss.
8-Edmonton - can't take anything positive from that one. looked like they were still in pre-season mode.
#1 Calgary visits #2 Saskatchewan this week. should determine which is for real.
Hamilton's poor defence goes against Edmonton's anemic offence. if Hamilton allows Edmonton to put up lots of points, the tabbies are in for a long season.
The Bombers are in Montreal. we'll see if their inspired performance was due to an improved club or if it was just a one-off due to the emotion of the night that gave them their week 1 effort.
