Power Rankings: Statement games at the top

TORONTO — One week into the 2023 season, a couple of teams have given us reason to think of the late, great Dennis Green.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.cfl.ca/2023/06/12/power-rankings-statement-games-at-the-top

Sorry, I know that I am not responding to this article - BUT… can I ask whose idea was it to have CFL games on a Sunday night? No. I am not a religious person - but I do have my own Sunday night schedule - for over 70 years it never included watching CFL football. How many games are scheduled for this time frame? Hopefully we are not following the Americans on this - if this is what we had to trade for CBS coverage - forget it!

How can you power rank a team with one win no losses below a team that’s lost and one that hasn’t played, especially since they also won their 2 exhibition games?

Don’t fret these rankings. These power ranking mean nothing logically this early. I figure it is just how the author of these rankings feel but does include his/her biases. When it hits the middle of the season the rankings often show more logically where teams stand.

A little early for these useless things isn’t it?

First 2 real games used to be pre-season till they figured nobody went to preseason. I’ll take it serious when each has played 5 games and got rid of the cobwebs. Can any team throw the Eskimoes a QB, Sheesh.

Looks pretty good, but I’d swap Edm & Mont

Mine would be

  1. Winnipeg
  2. BC
  3. Saskatchewan
  4. Toronto
  5. Montreal
  6. Hamilton
  7. Calgary
  8. Edmonton
  9. Ottawa.

First 2 are self explanatory.

I have Saskatchewan at 3 because I think their win over the Elks is better than not playing. Toronto over Montreal because that Montreal vs Ottawa game was a defensive struggle and Toronto offence will be more potent.

The rest are based off how I think the team as a whole preformed in their respective loses compared to the opponent they lost too. Feel free to pick away at it.

Why does the Riders end up tied with the Lions for second place…. because they beat the Elks at home? Doesn’t everyone?

I always shake my head at you guys who can’t tell the difference between the power rankings and the standings.

I understand how you get there but I think they generally like to not move teams with a bye up or down (and if a team on a bye moves down, you should see the complaining from their fans).

Ok so when I go to edit it’s a 3 beside Saskatchewan and everything is in a line and in order. :man_shrugging:

fixed it. don’t use brackets ) and put a space after the period when using numbered bullets.


Will do. Thanks

I agree with this

I think these Power Rankings are perfectly accurate.

Gee, one would think they do not use Logic but consult a broken owiji board.
But that thought cannot be right :thinking:
