Hamilton @ Saskatchewan
B.C. @ Calgary

Good luck!

I don't know what I'm more excited about: my Cats beating Montreal to take over first place in the East, or moving into a tie for 20th in the pool.

Who am I kidding? It's the Cats!!

Edmonton @ Winnipeg: Brink doesn't have what it takes to be a starter in this league. (Then again, the last guy I said that about was Danny McManus, so I guess even I can be wrong from time to time.) They might have a chance, being a home game against a team with question marks at QB, but picking the Bombers is a gamble I'm not willing to take. Esks by 6.

Toronto @ Montreal: The Als are stinging after their loss to Hamilton, and the Argos may be a little over-confident after squeaking past the eighth-place Bombers. Toronto has yet to impress me, having failed to beat a team without an injured starter at QB. As long as Calvillo stays healthy, there should be no problem here. Als by 12.

Hamilton @ Saskatchewan: This is not the same Hamilton team that was embarrassed by these Riders in Week 1. Their offence has started to gel, as evidenced by Henry Burris' 90% completion rate, 360 yards and 4 TD against Montreal. We're beginning to see the team people were talking about in the off-season. Plus, it's worked for me the last two weeks, so I'm going to sink or swim with these guys. Cats by 11.

B.C. @ Calgary: B.C. is too good to drop three in a row. Kevin Glenn is good, but inconsistent. We've seen Good Kevin two weeks in a row; that was an anomaly when he played here. Everything I look at points to B.C. in this one. Lions by 9.

Ugh... another 1-3 week. At this rate I'm going to resemble Ti-Cat teams pre-Bob Young. Week 5 picks..

Edmonton over Winnipeg
Montréal over Toronto
Saskatchewan over Hamilton
B.C. over Calgary

Thanks again, BD.

Edmonton @ Winnipeg
Toronto @ Montreal
Hamilton @ Saskatchewan
B.C. @ Calgary

My picks for week 5:

Edmonton - Bombers will have to show me that they are worth picking by winning
Montreal- after a loss in Hamilton, they will pound on the Argos at home
Saskatchewan - they will rebound after letting one get away in Calgary
BC - I think this one could be close, but BC wins

My week 5 picks in this league of parity (well, except the Bombers):

Edmonton over Winnipeg - being their home opener might give the Bombers a bit of a lift, but no
Toronto over Montreal - flipped a coin on this one (probably better than the way I've been picking so far :? )
Hamilton over Saskatchewan - Ticats offence has started to gel, and their d-line is getting better as well
BC over Calgary - Good Kevin showed up last week, so it's Bad Kevin's turn this week

Big Dave.week 5 are very close games.

its hard to pick these teams this week.

Here are my picks for Week 5:
Edmonton
Montreal
Hamilton
B.C.

Thanks Big Dave you rock :?

Thanks again Big Dave

Edmonton OVER Winnipeg
No brainer here Bombers still trying to work Brink into system, another lopsided affair Bomber home opener. Esks win 36-13
Montreal OVER Toronto
Two teams at 2-2 tied for 1st, if the East continues to play out like this, each divisional matchup will become more and more important. It's a shootout in Montreal as they pull it off 34-29
Saskatchewan OVER Hamilton
This is a tough one, Hamilton is NOT the same team they were in week 1 there alot better, some positives out of last game is that our offense is capable of scoring points. Riders take it in the game of the week 38-36
Calgary OVER BC
BC has puzzled me, they start off defending GC champs and go 2-0 out of the gate, they've kind of chocked last 2 games all vs divisonal opponents that continues this week as Calgary takes it 25-20

My picks for week 5 are:

Edmonton over Winnipeg
Montreal over Toronto
Hamilton over Saskatchewan
Calgary over BC
