Here are the Week #10 Mathematical Power Rankings:
Matthew Cauz | CFL.ca
British Columbia Lions (6-3)
Hey, it's hard to beat Montreal on the road. Let's see what happens next week when the Alouettes have to come to the Lions' barn. I can’t wait for next week’s rematch! I know that it must be tough for Geroy Simon who has yet to find the end zone but how about Arland Bruce? The guy is not playing like a man who will turn 35 in November.
Montreal Alouettes (6-3)
The hottest team in the league has served notice that last year's "down" season was more of a fluke and not a sign of things to come. Even though he only has one reception on the season, Bo Bowling makes his presence felt whenever he is on the field. Bowling may be the best down field blocker in the league. By the way shame on you Montreal for playing 'Who let the dogs out?" after Arland Bruce's 4th quarter touchdown. I thought we had all agreed that the Baha Men must never be played again.
Calgary Stampeders (5-4)
Calgary's 31-30 win over Edmonton is even more impressive when you consider they were minus-2 in turnovers margin and allowed a defensive touchdown. Most teams can win when they don't make any mistakes, but good teams are the ones that can overcome several critical mistakes and still find a way to victory.
Edmonton Eskimos (5-4)
While I'm sorry he didn't stick with an NFL squad, as a CFL fan it's fun to have Jerome Messam back in the league. Poor Cory Boyd, all he wants to do is find a team that will give him 15-20 carries a game. Yes Edmonton put up 30 points, but how much can I trust an offence where Kerry Joseph does not complete a pass in the second half until just under nine minutes of the fourth quarter?
Toronto Argonauts (5-4)
You can argue that Toronto deserves to be the highest ranked of the three 5-4 teams. They've swept Calgary while the Eskimos are 1-2 in their past three games. But considering Toronto, like every team in the East, has been outscored this year I have to place them fifth. Great to see Ken-Yon Rambo back on the field again.
Saskatchewan Roughriders (4-5)
My god I can only imagine just how much fun Mosaic must have been last week. 52-0! Now that is how you end a five game losing streak. Good to see that Darian Durant is all right after taking a big hit early in the third quarter.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats (3-6)
Remember a couple of years ago when Markeith Knowlton, Jamall Johnson and Otis Floyd were leading a dangerous Hamilton defence? Now this once proud unit is trying to find their identity.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-7)
Hey Winnipeg, remember last season when I jumped on your bandwagon early? I was the guy that said you could win the East. I was also one of the few writers who defended your questionable off season. Then a week ago I ranked you over Saskatchewan, you had been playing better football over the past month, so naturally I felt you deserved to be one spot ahead of the Roughriders. So after all my goodwill you lay one of the greatest stink bombs in the history of the CFL. Now I know how Robert Pattinson feels. If I could rank you 9th I would.
