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.
