TurkeyBend PowerGobbleRankings -Thanksgiving

My favourite time of year- the leaves changing colours, frost on the pumpkin, necks being stretched and lots of stuffing to come.!!!!!!!!! How has the fall air changed our rankings - let's see:

  1. Saskatchewan Roughriders- With the Als loss, the Riders with their win on the road climb back to first. Durant showed MVP like numbers and the Riders wowed us again. Since they defeated both Calgary and Montreal the Riders must be first!!! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :cowboy: :wink: :thup: :rockin:

  2. Calgary Foothillers- They came and the STamps tooketh. Great comeback game by the Stamps vaulting them back to 2nd. Re-match with the Riders and eventual playoff matches keep us all drooling. Bad Henry, good henry, cross-dressing henry what can we expect next week. Poor Huffer must be exhausted. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :oops: :oops: :oops:

  3. Montreal Als- Tough loss on the road but tough for eastern clubs to win out west. Still a highly competitive and well coached team. I keep saying year after year they are too old but darn it just like this old turkey they keep plucking along.

  4. Edmonton Esks- Ricky Ray is back, Tillman is in charge, Ritchie Hall is smiling and all is good in the City of Champs again. Most impressive win this week.

  5. Hamilton Tiger-Cats- Wide open Ti-cats must stop the other guys sometimes. Beat the Lions though so ahead of them.

  6. B.C. Lions- won with boring football on offence. But, the most exciting kick returner in the league. Where would they be without him. Lulay gained more yards rushing in one game than Printers did all season and did not turn the ball over.
    However, the Lions will lose in Winnipeg.

  7. Winnipeg Blue Bombers- running out of time

  8. Toronto Argos- fading fast and losing fans too. Too bad because the centre of the universe needs to support the CFL for true stability of the league.

Go Riders Go
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13 oops :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:

your brain is already stetched for Thanksgiving dinner turkeyman.

I say the rankings should be-

  1. Calgary
  2. Saskatchewan
  3. montreal
  4. B.C.
  5. Hamilton
  6. Edmonton
  7. Toronto
  8. Winnipeg

Not your best effort. :cry:

I see someone started his holiday drinking a little early. :thup:

Turkey, what's happening to your rankings? They used to be accurate, but your past few efforts have been a tad bit lackluster. :stuck_out_tongue: :expressionless: :stuck_out_tongue:

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

Is how I would rank them as of now.

I could see maybe Calgary ranking ahead of Saskatchewan, but how does Montreal? The Riders are on a three game winning streak, one win coming from the best team in the CFL at the time and the other two coming from second placed teams from the Eastern division on the road. Durant looks as if he is starting to get some swagger back. Hamilton lost to Edmonton this week, meaning they should be lower than fourth.

Regardless, Montreal should beat Calgary this week putting them in second while the Riders should beat Toronto this week which will put them in first. We will then have the first place showdown the following week which will determine once and for all who should be at the top of these rankings.

???? why regardless that Montreal should beat the Stamps. Calgary has been the better team all year, why would all of a sudden Montreal be the fav. Just because its a home game for the Al's means nothing. You make it sound as if Montreal should have this game in the bag.

Montreal and Saskatchewan split their series, and both were relatively close games, and it's very close, admittedly. However, Montreal was without their number one QB for two games (and went 1-1). You can argue that if Calvillo wasn't taken out, they would have gone 2-0 on those games. Of course, that's all contemplation, and what's passed is passed. But do you think Saskatchewan would have won their games if Durant was out? I know that's all a "what if" scenario, but the fact that Montreal went two games without their number one, while Saskatchewan hasn't missed him for a single game, and both teams are tied makes me give the nod to Montreal.

If Calgary wins, first place belongs to them, without question. If Montreal wins, then it's a really close decision for first. Depending on the margin of victory that Saskatchewan have over Toronto (IF they win, that is), I would rank them either second or third afterwards, based on the results from the Montreal/Calgary game.

With that logic, Winnipeg should be ranked up there as well seeing as Buck Pierce has been injured for a good chunk of the season. How about the fact that half of our defensive line, and other players on our defense have injured these last two games, and yet have still managed to win on the road? Injuries happen. It is just more noticed when it is at the quarterback position.

Jyles has played a heck of a lot more games than Pierce has, regardless who was intended to be the starter. Calvillo only missed two games. I don't want to involve other teams in the comparison, I only use this between Saskatchewan and Montreal as a marker, because they're so close in terms of how I personally rank them.

Honestly, I feel that Montreal and Saskatchewan have a pretty great rivalry going on at this point. Any MTL/SASK game is a MUST WATCH for me. And rightly so, in my opinion, the two most exciting games all year have been their two games. Admittedly, Saskatchewan has had its fair share of injuries, but Montreal has as well, especially recently with Lambert and Watkins out for the season and Duval hurt right now. Saskatchewan and Montreal have a lot in common, really, aside from their records, which is why I choose to look towards their leaders as the marker for who the better team is.

I certainly don't ask you to agree with me, but you questioned my stance on this, and there's the explanation for it. :slight_smile:
