Fall Release

Welcome to the new season!

Since the end of hockey season there have been tonnes of changes made. Here's the info on what is getting released next week and beyond. We have improved rival rankings, chat, and given you more ways to easily connect with your friends.

Here's one for the record books

A common question presented in the interactive InGamer chat area is who holds the records? Top game score, best quarter, top player are a few of the categories that generally carry the most discussion and if Scotty Mack isn't around to verify, they generally go unanswered. So, to end the debate and more importantly to have some fun, let's take a look at the current individual NFL & NHL InGamer high game score records with a brief description of what happened during the games they were set.
Writers note: These records are as of September 23rd, 2011.

NFL High Individual Game Score

It almost pains me to write this, and if not for a late game interception thrown by Miami's Chad Henne during week 1 Monday Night Shoot Out versus New England I would not have to, but InGamer's own Nic Sulsky is the current high game record holder. Nic scored an impressive 2904 points during November 15th 2010 Philadelphia Eagles victory over the Washington Redskins. So what happened in this particular contest? Well...Mike Vick accounted for 6 touchdowns leading the Eagles to a resounding 59 - 28 thumping of the Skins.

Top 5:
1. InGamer_Nic: 2904 15/11/2010 Philadelphia versus Washington
2. Myluckypicks: 2851 12/09/2011 New England versus Miami
3. Sue: 2764 12/09/2011 New England versus Miami
4. Playermaker4477: 2726 12/09/2011 New England versus Miami
5. Keesje_Ingamer: 2590 12/09/2011 New England versus Miami

NHL High Individual Game Score

It is a five way tie for the top NHL game score. On Saturday October 30th, 2010 Washington exploded for six second period goals en-route to a 7-2 thrashing of the Calgary Flames with Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Mike Green and Alex Semin combining for five goals and 8 assists. It was almost the perfect storm for setting a high game score....one of the NHL's most popular players along with his supporting cast going on a scoring rampage.

Top 5:
1. horseshoes: 1052
2. ssettle: 1052
3. travlorno: 1052
4. maroons: 1052
5. lsi750227: 1052

I'll continue to dive down the road of high scores as the season progresses and certainly see these records falling. Next week we will take a look at the all time best periods/quarters.

This Week in the CFL - Sep 12th

Edmonton @ Hamilton

Fred Stamps: Yes he had just two catches for 39 yards but the guy returned a couple weeks early from his abdominal injury. With an extra week of practice and recovery, expect big things from the Eskimos number one threat. On the flip side the Ti-Cats secondary is back to giving up big plays and really does not have an answer for Stamps.

Avon Cobourne: I’m calling for a massive bounce back game. Montreal got up so quickly on Hamilton; completely negating any semblance of a rushing attack. Cobourne is the definition of a workhorse back and will not repeat his pitiful five carry, two yard performance against an Edmonton squad that is last in average yards per rush allowed.

Toronto @ Saskatchewan

Steven Jyles: I’m sick and tired of picking Argonauts defensive players week in and week out. This may be a hero pick; but Jyles did rush for 47 yards against the Lions and the last time Jyles faced the Roughriders he did post a 116 QB Rating. Yeah I know I’m reaching a bit but at least you know he won’t be pulled for Dalton Bell.

Wes Cates: If you look at his last two games it is hard to be impressed with his yardage totals but remember Cates was going up against the Blue Bombers rush defence in both contests. This week he faces the Bizarro Blue Bombers D in Toronto who are last in league in rush defence, allowing nearly 123 yards a game.

BC @ Calgary

Khalif Mitchell: I’m curious to see what the Lions can do for an encore. Last week he managed three sacks and five tackles overall for a defence that has now gone 13 quarters without allowing a touchdown.

Brandon Smith: This is my hunch pick for the week. Brandon, one of the best corners on Calgary should have plenty of tackle opportunities facing a Lions squad that is 2nd in pass attempts and has the fewest yards rushing.

Winnipeg @ Montreal

Before I continue can I give a quick shout out to Buck Pierce? Five interceptions in one game! Are you kidding me? Maybe you really aren’t that good. Moving on...

Jonathan Hefney: I would have looked at one of the Blue Bombers wide outs but to be honest I have no idea who is going to be “The Man” on any given week. It’s like guessing the Patriots passing game, just infuriating. Hefney will be facing the best passing attack in the league so look for a high tackle total.

Chip Cox: Winnipeg quarterbacks were sacked three times and Buck had five interceptions against Saskatchewan how could I not look at Cox as an interesting pick? The guy is always making big plays and he’ll be facing an offence that is about as mistake prone as they come.

This Week in the CFL - Sep 5th

Calgary @ Edmonton

Keon Raymond: I have no idea what to expect from Calgary's offence after Henry Burris put up a four turnover stink bomb in Week 10. I do expect the defence to do a better job so no better player to Captain than the team's lynchpin on that side of the ball. Raymond is tied for the league lead in interceptions (4) and is the big play man for the Stampeders secondary.

Adarius Bowman: Bowman returned from injury with a solid 81-yard, one touchdown performance on Labour Day. With Fred Stamps and Jason Barnes both doubtful this week look for Ricky Ray to target Bowman early and often.

Toronto @ B.C.

Cleo Lemon: Oh yeah ... sorry about that.

Willie Pile: There's just no point placing the Captain tag on any offensive player. I would not be surprised to see the Lions race out to an early and large lead and then go conservative on offence. If that's the case you want a guy who can rack up high tackle numbers. Pile is healthy, consistent and finished with 10 tackles and a sack versus the Lions last week.

Oh, by the way; congratulations to Dalton Bell for putting up negative numbers on Labour Day. Of course not that it would have affected anyone, since no sane person would have Bell anywhere in their lineup.

Geroy Simon: After seeing Akeem Foster (8-144 yards last week) and Arland Bruce (15-180 yards, 2 TD's) have big games the last couple weeks I'm looking for Lulay to go back to his favourite target against one of the CFL's weaker secondary's. The numbers don't lie. Toronto is giving up the highest opponent completion percentage (71.7%), the most completions, and of course the most yards at a galling 303.8 yards a game. Bombs away!

Hamilton @ Montreal

Chris Williams: DB Dwight Anderson had no answer for Williams last week and with Mark Estelle out of the lineup, Williams will be a match-up nightmare for the Alouettes secondary.

Brendan Whitaker: A big mistake by the Alouettes was not running the ball more with their star back. Brendan put up 55 yards on just eight carries. Calvillo looked old and confused against the myriad of defensive fronts Hamilton threw at him. If Montreal wants to improve on their ZERO touchdown performance from last week I have one simple solution: give the ball to the CFL's leader in total yards!

Saskatchewan @ Winnipeg

Jerrell Freeman: Freeman was a man possessed last week racking up seven tackles, one sak, and even an interception. As you will see in a second, I have a feeling there will be a negative market correction going on with Saskatchewan's offence. Go safe, go defence.

Odell Willis: I know it was all happy good times for the Roughriders last week but I attribute a lot of that to an emotional one week bump with the return of Ken Miller. I expect Winnipeg's D to strike down with a great vengeance and furious anger upon the Green and White. So with that in mind, expect Willis to treat Durant the same way Jules Winnfield did on those kids who stole Marsellus Wallace's brief case.
