this is what TSN thinks about the power ranking after week 2
Updated June 26
The inability to get the running game going, even just a little bit, proved to be enough to stall the Lions in Saskatchewan. That, and allowing a 100-yard drive with the game on the line. And yet, they're still in top spot.
Outscored the TiCats 15-0 to pull away in the second half, the second straight week in which the Als have taken control of a game that was in doubt. This week, the Als couldn't get the ferocious pass rush on Jason Maas, but stifled running back Josh Ranek, limiting him to just 15 yards on nine carries.
The Week One disaster was redeemed by Kerry Joseph leading the Riders the length of the field to beat the Lions, but careless late penalties almost sealed Saskatchewan's fate. Joseph's rushing ability really proved to be the difference too, as he gained 92 yards on the ground and kept the ball moving.
Moved the ball enough, but terrible interceptions by Henry Burris cost the Stamps against Edmonton. After getting shredded by Ricky Ray for two weeks in a row, to the tune of 785 yards, the Stamps might need to turn their defensive attention to the secondary.
As mentioned, Ricky Ray still has that difference-making potential, but there is a still something amiss with 785 passing yards only resulting in 32 total points. If the Esks start capitalizing on that ability to move the ball, look for regular 40-point games.
The defence could make the biggest difference in the fortunes of the team. Holding the Argos to 18 yards rushing and 94 yards passing, and with DE Ron Warner registering four of the Bombers' six sacks, it's going to be interesting seeing how the Bombers cope with Ray and the Eskimos.
Now that Spergon Wynn is the starter, are opposing defences going to show any kind of respect that will allow the Argonauts to run the ball on occasion? Ricky Williams mustered only 14 yards on eight carries, but behind an offensive line that also surrendered six sacks, there are plenty of problem areas when the Argos have the ball.
Unable to get the running game going with Ranek, the Tiger Cats went scoreless in the second half to be the league's only 0-2 squad through two weeks. It will get better eventually, but visiting Calgary this week isn't necessarily going to turn things around quickly.
i agree with TSN's, but with the exception of montreal and BC, i think that they should be flip flopped..otherwise i guess they have t rite?
