Steve’s not here, so like the NWO… I’M TAKING OVER….


1 – Winnipeg Blue Bombers (7-2) (LW: 1)

2 – Hamilton Tiger-cats (7-2) (LW: 2)

3 – Edmonton Eskimos (6-3) (LW: 5)

4 – Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-3) (LW: 2.65)

5 – Calgary Stampeders (5-4) (LW: 4)

6 – Montreal Alouettes (4-4) (LW: 6)

7 – Toronto Argonauts (1-7) (LW: 7)

8 – Ottawa REDBLACKS (3-6) (LW: 8)

9 – BC Lions (1-8) (LW: 9)

Winnipeg is narrowly holding onto first place, but with the rumours that the Canadian Mafia is calling any QB that has a heartbeat (Glenn, Willy, Bridge, etc), the Era of Streveler might be a rough one.

Hamilton won a snooze fest, if you can call that winning, at times if felt more like Ottawa was trying to lose that game. So really, if they were trying to lose, they were very successful at it.

Normally, I hate a team losing a spot due to a bye week, but here I am doing it. The Empire jumps up to 3rd from 5th after putting up 41 points on the lowly Argos. However, they gave up 26 points to the lowly Argos as well. They might not be at 3rd long because…

The Riders drop 1.35 spots to 4th on the bye week but have Ottawa at home. This will be a one-week change.

Calgary drop another game and another spot. In probably the most exciting and controversial game of the season Montreal went into Calgary and won for the first time since Grey Cup 2009. (Ouch, my heart)

Alouettes are starting to gel under the leadership of QB Vernon Adams and Head Coach Khari Jones. They are gaining momentum weekly, and in a weak East division they could be the surprise team of the year.

Argos may have a worse record than Ottawa but right now it is hard to tell which team is worse. Ottawa looked lifeless against Hamilton and Toronto put up a valiant effort against Edmonton, but there are personnel issues with both teams. Its going to get uglier before it gets better.

With all the QB injuries this season, what voodoo god are the BC Lions fans sacrificing to? Mike Reilly spends more time on his back looking at the lights than well travelled wrestler Barry Horowitz. This team is just bad, at least we should be past the point of hearing about 2011.
