Piffles 2024 Power Rankings – Week 3

Published: Tuesday, Jun 18th 2024, 8:06am

Week 2 of the CFL season is in the books, and there are 4 undefeated teams remaining (in fairness, 2 of them have only played 1 game). Corey Mace and the Cardiac Kids won another game on the back of another 4th quarter come back. If they can figure out how to play the other 3 quarters of a football game, they might just become an unstoppable force.

Lets see how things shake out in this week’s edition of the Piffles Power Rankings:

 

1 – Montreal (LW: 1)

 Stephen – They don’t have to be pretty, but as long as the 2023 Grey Cup Champs continue to win, they’ll find themselves firmly entrenched in the 1 spot.

2Saskatchewan (LW: 3)

 Alex: The resiliency this team is showing is nothing short of incredible. ANOTHER big road win has us feeling great in Rider Nation, despite some things the team needs to work on. But getting 2 wins on the road to start the season is impressive and they jump again this week because of it.

 3 – BC (LW: 4)

Stephen: 50,000+ fans through the gates, and a good chunk of them stuck around to watch BC win. That’s good news for the BC Lions future attendance numbers

 4 – Toronto (LW: 2)

 Stephen: They only have 1 game to show for it so far, but it was a big win. A home date vs the hapless Edmonton Elks should propel them to 2-0

 5 – Calgary (LW: 5)

 Greg: Stamps put up some yards on the Lions defense but couldn’t get enough TDs to win. Not sure if the emergence of Maier is a mirage or a real deal yet.

 6 – Ottawa (LW: 9)

 Greg: Ottawa with a win after a long rain delay… I’m not saying the RedBlacks are the 2007 Riders but… Ok I’m not saying that at all. They just get 2 spots for beating Winnipeg 

 7 – Hamiton (LW: 6)

 Greg: Bo looks healthy and they have some receivers. Riders held Butler in check, but Hamilton could make waves in the east.

 8 – Edmonton (LW: 8)

 Alex: 2-18 at home with Chris Jones at the helm in this term. Something needs to change and not their roster every week. They are getting close to breaking through, but they continue to find ways to blow it. 

 9 – Winnipeg (LW: 7)

 Alex: Another poor performance for Zach Collaros has everyone questioning if this is it for him. I don’t think it is, but this team got old fast and just can’t keep up anymore. It’s been a great two weeks to start the season!

Author’s Note: Alex had the Rack Attack Regina Flag Football Team (2016 city champs baby!) in 9th place ahead of Winnipeg, with the following note:

 

Our old flag team could probably go into Ottawa and win, something Winnipeg can’t say over the last couple of years.
