A shaky but exciting week 3 leads to some shaky and exciting shake ups in this week’s Power Rankings! Oh, and instead of just arguing on the podcast, we added Wray’s list to the fold!
Andy’s Quick Reaction
There was no way for me to justify dropping Calgary out of the top spot considering they are still undefeated, beat 2 quality teams, and Bo Levi Mitchell is having a down season. Hamilton jumping into 2 was a no brainer, and Masoli just might be the MOP after week 3. Edmonton and Winnipeg stay put because of the dumpster fire in the second half of this list, and Ottawa drops to 5 after a horrendous performance. The RedBlacks are better than that… As for spots 6 through 9, Toronto, Montreal and BC all gain a spot because the ineptitude in Saskatchewan has no place on this list but last. Dead… Last…
Wray’s Quick Reaction:
No team is showing their power on offence and defence like the Ti-Cats after their week 1 loss. Masoli had another huge week against one of the better defences in the CFL, putting up 369 yards with a 75.6% passing completion. Calgary’s Bo Levi Mitchell is a known commodity in this league and some will have you believe that he will get a look in the NFL in 2019… Calgary came out with a win against Ottawa and for this reason I am plugging them in at Number 2, I am not overly confident in their team right now and I personally think they are hitting the bye week at the right time to for an early re-group. I have not forgotten about the slapping that Edmonton took at home against Hamilton. Sure, Mike Reilly bounced back in week 3 to throw for 326 yards and 3 TDs with a 73.3% Passing Completion, but he also threw 2 INT’s and they were playing the BC Lions so I wouldn’t be too excited here Eskimo Fans. I had Ottawa ranked #1 last week but week 2 has me thinking I was a little intoxicated from the Redblacks Kool Aid. Trevor Harris… I love ya Buddy but that performance against Calgary was not one you want to remember. While Winnipeg could climb to the third spot in a hurry, BC is at the top of the basement stairs looking down… Montreal‘s one win pulled them out of that basement, and the Riders’ loss to the Als drops them below Toronto to the concrete floor!
