Week #1 practice run ...
Saskatchewan @ Montreal - Montreal - Montreal only needed a Quarterback last year and they would have been in the hunt. Thanks to the kindness of the Riders, they now have one. I have all the respect in the world for Kevin Glenn, but even with Derrick (Show me the money) Dennis, he is still going to spend a good deal of time running for his life. One man does not an O-line make. Too bad KG is going to end up being the scapegoat for another "cluster pouch" in Riderville. Improved ... Yes! Winners ... Not so much. Sorry Ridernation, I think it's going to be another LONG year (but you do have a shiny new stadium to look at :thup: ). Montreal by 15.
Calgary @ Ottawa - Calgary - The Grey Cup loss still stings (yeah I said it). EVERYONE in the entire stadium knew that on the one yard line at the end of the game, Jerome Messam should have been given the ball for one more bull rush ... but it's in the books and this is a new season. Gone but not forgotten ... Harris will need a Burris like "game of his life" to win this game ... Calgary by 21.
Edmonton @ BC - BC - This is the tough call game of the week. I am choosing BC, simply because they have the weapons to "make it happen", but that doesn't mean they will. BC by 3.
Hamilton @ Toronto - Toronto - Toronto has a Defense! Toronto is showing some life on Offense! Toronto goes as Ricky Ray goes. I think for this game, Toronto has the edge, but just barely. I am also not "sold" on Reinbolt as the DC and Hamilton goes as Zach goes. Toronto by 7.
Love to see the VGCC continue. Good Luck to all my fellow competitors and a huge thank you to Big Dave for running this for all these years for our entertainment!
