I was thinking the same thing last night. I think there have only been a couple of close games so far.
I agree with what has been posted regarding the new OCs, and the short preseason being an issue, but most teams are in the same boat.
There is definately some really good teams and some realy bad teams in the CFL right now. You wouldn’t know that there was a cap.
Some recent things that may have had an impact was the dispersal of Ottawa, and the change to the roster size. It just seems like some teams did better in the draft than others and all teams got better, and there are a number of teams who have done a better job of recruiting and filling in for injuries, which is easier to do when you can keep more bodies protected. Those teams who have been rebuilding (ie. Hamilton, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton), are all not playing very well and are running into to some real power house teams. The fact is the good teams tend to really be stacked with good players, because the on field product is not as watered down as it has been in the past.
I suspect that there will be some closer games when the good teams meet the good teams. The matchups so far have mostly had a week team against a strong team.
