Heres the break down as I see it.
All can agree or disagree as need be.
1- B.C. Lions (9-0) I don't see much arguement here as this the only team not to lose. With the bye week they are healthy again and looking to put up more big numbers.
2- Edmonton Eskimos (7-3) Labour day went as in usually does. Hard fought game that could go either way. A very good defense, talented recievers and a good QB. Still looking to find a ground game and more O-line protection.
3- Toronto Argos (6-4) A loss to the rivals of Steel town but they showed that they are still good enough to be top three. Offensively they minimize mistakes and defensively they disguise very well.
4- Montreal Alouettes (5-5) How the Als get the groove back? Defense played great on friday and and the offense is still very stong. Can they do this again and again? Most likely.
5- Calgary Stampeders (4-6) Playing hard and just losing means that they are finding a groove. Will be a team to watch out for this firday and the next 7 weeks after that.
6- Saskatchewan Roughriders (4-6) They have found their identity again. They run and defend. But can they keep doing it. We will find out in Winnipeg.
7- Ottawa Renegades (5-5) Questions of how to protect Joseph are showing up. It is hard to win with you best players on the turf. Let's see how they fare vs. BC.
8- Hamilton Tiger Cats (2-8) Two wins back to back put some roar back into the Tabbies. This team is now making the plays they were not before. Great finish in Hamilton monday but now they get to go up the QEW to see the Argos again.
9- Winnipeg Blue Bombers (3-8) Two loses in a row and still trying to find a level of consisent play. They can still surprise some teams if they aren't careful.
