3-1, not bad. Still up there with the pack.
Edmonton @ Winnipeg: Edmonton must be stinging after dropping a close one in front of 62,000 fans at Commonwealth. They'll be looking to prove themselves, and to get back into the hunt for first in the West. The Bombers showed they are good enough to beat Toronto, but still bad enough to nearly blow it. To make the playoffs, they need to win one more than B.C.; unfortunately, they don't play Toronto any more. Home field advantage may help them keep it close, but the better team will win here. Esks by 6.
Saskatchewan @ B.C.: The Riders are so unpredictable. Despite the talk of how hard it is to win in Regina, they have a better record on the road than at home. B.C. needs to put together some wins to avoid being the crossover team: let's face it, no one wants to have to face Montreal in the playoffs, and B.C. also lost both games to Hamilton this year. The big question is at quarterback, where Jarious Jackson is still out, and Buck Pierce is one big hit away from a career in basket-weaving. That leaves just rookie Matt Lulay, and [shudder] Casey Printers [/shudder]. But if Pierce can stay on his feet, and Martell Mallett gets going, the home team prevails. Lions by 4.
Montreal @ Toronto: Montreal put together what was probably their best, most complete game of the season against Hamilton. There's no reason to believe they won't be able to do more of the same down the QEW. In fact, looking at the remainder of the schedule, there's no reason not to believe that they will become only the second team in CFL history to win 16 games in a season. On the flip side, the Argos have taken the crown that once belonged to my Tiger-cats -- that of the worst team in the CFL -- and they wear it well. Seems hardly worth making a pick here. Als by a zillion.
Hamilton @ Calgary: Two weeks ago, Bad Hank showed up in Hamilton, just as I predicted he would, and the result was a Hamilton win. At McMahon Stadium, the Cats would really need Bad Hank; but he's not due for a couple more weeks yet. (I'm hoping he surprises me and makes an early appearance, but I'm not willing to risk my high ranking in the VGCC on it.) Last week, Hamilton was outplayed offensively, defensively, and on special teams by the Alouettes. Hopefully that was the wake-up call they needed. Still, the Cats need to learn to win on the road, something they haven't done much this season. Stamps by 11.
