The REAL Power Rankings after week 15
#1 BC - 7-1 in last 8 games. struggled against the rider defence. Dickenson replaced by Pierce again who threw a TD when DD could not. Buono made a crucial coaching error in OT which may have cost them the win.
#2 Calgary - winners of 6 of their last 7, improved to 9-5 and clinched a playoff berth with the victory. DeAngelis stole the show and calgary's D totally shut down toronto's offence.
#3 Saskatchewan - won 4 of last 5. Defence was electric holding BC's offence to 17 points in reg.time. riders seem to have the lions number.
#4 Toronto - won 5 of last 6. offence has been non-existant 2 straight games.
#5 Winnipeg - finally beat montreal, moving into a 3-way tie for 1st in the east. Hebert, Simpson and the bomber D had a big game to bail out thier stuggling offence.
#6 Montreal - 6 straight losses. offence seemed unfocused and confused and couldn't get anything going. Calvillo didn't throw a TD pass, giving him only five majors in his last eight contests.
#7 Hamilton - another big game by the ticat defence, swating balls and forcing INTs. Maas made the big throws and didnt have any turnovers. too little too late tho, as they must win all 3 remaining games to have a sniff of the postseason.
#8 Edmonton - the casket is going into the ground and the shovels are in the dirt pile. with 2 games against the ticats, it looked like edmonton were gonna walk away with a 6-7 record and close to a playoff spot. instead they are 4-9 and the playoffs are a blip on the radar.
note: Winnipeg vs Montreal for the higher ranking next week.
