Calgary Stampeders
Week 7 Ranking: 1
Water is wet, the sky is blue, Canadians are polite and the Calgary Stampeders are #1 in the CFL.ca Power Rankings. Bo Levi Mitchell's Stamps are rolling right now, and seemingly have no intention of slowing down. What's more, the Stamps offence could get a major boost in the backfield with Jon Cornish's pending return.

 
Edmonton Eskimos
Week 7 Ranking: 2

Much like their provincial counterparts, the Edmonton Eskimos are on a tear right now. Mike Reilly is earning some M-O-P consideration in the West, while Adarius Bowman is set to smah his career-high in both receiving yards and touchdowns. The defence has been exceptional as well, allowing just 16.4 points per-game, while conceding just 264.5 yards-per-game.

 
Saskatchewan Roughriders
Week 7 Ranking: 3

We asked you last week, but we need to ask you again: How good has John Chick been so far this year? Even his own teammates are in awe of what he's been able to do to this point of the season. Wearing their new CFL Signature Uniforms, the Riders held off a late push by the Alouettes and won their fourth-straight game. A crucial test against the Lions awaits in Week 9

 
BC Lions
Week 7 Ranking:
5
BC slots in at the four spot after putting on a fourth-quarter-clinic in Toronto on Sunday night, one that saw them rack up 20 points. Kevin Glenn moved up to eighth on the all-time passing yards list in the win, but it's very possible we see Travis Lulay back under centre against the Riders on Sunday. Does Glenn deserve to sit?

 
Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Week 7 Ranking: 4

The Bombers drop to five after dropping their second-straight on a rare Tuesday night matchup in Toronto. Drew Willy was good, but not great, while the offensive line had their problems once again, giving up five sacks for a second-consecutive outing. Are the Bombers simply on a mini-skid? Or are they starting to fall back down to earth?

 
Toronto Argonauts
Week 7 Ranking: 6
The Argos went 1-1 in their two-game week, bringing their record to 3-5 on the season. With six points, the Boatmen are still very much in control of the East. They'll look to solidify their hold on the division when they head to Edmonton, where Ricky Ray will make his second return to Commonwealth Stadium since being traded in 2012.

 
Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Week 7 Ranking: 7

Hamilton slots in at seven after dropping a tight one to the Stampeders for the second time this season. The Ticats will head into their bye a battered bunch, especially under centre where Dan LeFevour has joined Zach Collaros in sick bay. Should LeFevour be out for an extended period of time, does Jeremiah Masoli have what it takes to get the Ticats back in the thick of things?

 
Montreal Alouettes
Week 7 Ranking: 8
Alex Brink was solid, but not quite good enough to guide Montreal to a win over the Riders on Saturday night. Making his first start since 2012, Brink hooked up with seven different receivers, and certainly didn't look out of sorts leading the Als' offence. Nonetheless, it's obvious the Als need more than a change at quarterback to right their ship.

  
Ottawa REDBLACKS
Week 7 Ranking: 9
Things won't get any easier for Ottawa this week, as they'll welcome the Stampeders just one week after hosting the Eskimos. Do the REDBLACKS have more to offer this season? Or will the growing pains last until it's too late?

Red Blacks will tire of Burris, dump im for Demarco, Lulay will last one game and Burris will go to BC. Glenn will say, Really Wally? Via Rail east bound to Hamilton and take them to the Grey Cup, where he ll salute Burris and Wally on TV cause he knows they re waqtching at home. Let it be so.

Maybe if Lulay is back this week , Glenn could go to the Ti-cats and make an appearance in the Grey Cup in Vancouver. LOL He sure does deserve to be starting , so trade him Wally.

Still too early to trade Glenn. I suspect he won't be with the Lions next year, though (sadly).

Feel free to give one good reason Montreal deserves to be ahead of Hamilton. I'd love to hear it.

Reverse Argos and Bombers for 5th and 6th. Riders are having too many problems on offense and they lost the head-to-head at home to BC. BC 3rd, Riders 4th.

Hamilton needs solid QB play buy they can challenge Toronto in East, Ottawa and Montreal cannot compete against Ray and co. Winnipeg is coming down to earth hard and I see a " chance " REDBLACKS could compete if they can find a elite talent at WR to help out Burris
