[ol]- Montreal (last week 1): Pummeling an inept Argo squad isn’t the best measure of excellence, but a shutout win still gives the Als the best record in the league.
- Hamilton (last week 4): Playing the kind of gritty football that bodes well for the playoffs. Learning how to win close games is just what this team is doing. Greg Marshall has these DBs ball-hawking with the best of ‘em.
- Edmonton (last week 2): Need more red-zone production and fewer picks.
- Calgary (last week 3): From almost blowing a lead in the dying seconds of the game to the offense sputtering in the second half, the Stamps continue to have problems putting together 60-minute efforts. Penalties also starting to become a worrisome trend.
- Saskatchewan (last week 5): The offense is inconsistent no matter who’s behind center, the run D has suddenly gone south, and the secondary’s cover abilities are questionable.
- Winnipeg (last week 7): Bishop makes this team less painful to watch, but until Mike Kelly gets the passing game straightened out, shutting down Fred Reid is still the key to stopping the Bombers’ offense.
- B.C. (last week 8 ): A win gets them out of the basement, but 3 turnovers on their first three drives and a rash of avoidable penalties suggest this team still has lots of room to improve.
- Toronto (last week 6): Did anyone think any offense could match the LeFors-led Bombers in total futility? Without an O-line, a receiving corps, a return game, or an experienced CFL head coach, the Boatmen are regressing massively.[/ol]
