We've all (or most of us) have been around watching the CFL long enough to know what to expect in the upcoming season.
as much as the Eskimo Fans are hoping for a rebound in 2014 from a dismal 4-14 season, the odds of it happening aren't too good.
seeing as Calgary, B.C. and Saskatchewan are all going to be good teams again the Eskimos are going to have a very difficult time breaking out of the Cellar..
Their talent levels are not quite at the same level as the good teams, especially in their Canadian talent.
the East can be hard to predict with so many changes going on..
Nobody can say for sure if Toronto or Montreal will be good. Toronto does have Ricky Ray however they did lose their Defensive Coordinator and a few other Coaches.
Montreal is likely going to be starting 2014 with a new Starting QB for the first time since Tracy Ham Retired.
Hamilton is the most solid team of all 4 in the East, with the fewest changes coming, and unless they totally blow things up during the off season, they can only get better.
now as far as the good teams in West.
what determines who will finish 1st to 3rd will be who suffers the least amount of Damage from Free Agency and the Expansion Draft.
if the Riders can either get back Dressler and/or Sheets they could have very few problems. However, if they have to Replace Sheets then there will be some question marks in the Backfield.
Calgary did lose their most consistent QB to the RedBlacks, but their running game with Cornish will help adjust that.
they have a lot of Depth, but can they keep things going strong?
B.C. has made some changes with coaching and some free agents but Wally will not allow the Lions to suffer too long. i expect them to make a good challenge in the West again.
