2013 CFL Power Rankings Week 8

1. Saskatchewan Roughriders
Pretty weak victory against Montreal on the weekend, but those games are going to happen to even the best teams and they managed to win anyways.

2. Calgary Stampeders
Are the Stamps at their best when Kevin Glenn is the quarterback? I'm not sure. Losing on the road to the Lions and their weird new uniforms wasn't impressive, however they still hold on to second based on previous efforts. Cornish is probably more important than who the quarterback is now. Losing Nik Lewis hurts, especially for his blocking that shows up more on highlight reels rather than the stats.

3. Toronto Argonauts
So they barely beat Edmonton at home. They still are 4 and 2 which is worth something and recently beat BC. Not really a great team, but a good team that has enough offense and defence to pick up some wins.

4. BC Lions
The new uniforms were a little odd, but winning at home against Calgary is something. BC is a little less consistent than one would have expected and their offense hasn't been that great considering Travis Lulay is their quarterback.

5. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Best of the ass teams, the Cats are almost back to 500 after back to back victories against chump teams Winnipeg and Edmonton. With Andy Fantuz back, the offense is solid and in the dismantling of Winnipeg, the overhauled defence looks better than when they were losing. Still not much of a running game, although Gable is a dual threat.

6. Edmonton Eskimos
They came close to the Argos this week, but not enough to win. Not a lot to really say. They still have Fred Stamps.

7. Montreal Alouettes
Almost won versus the Riders in Regina, but managed to lose. Calvillo has a concussion, which has to hurt their ranking. Haven't won since firing their coach.

8. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Still haven't won in their new stadium and lost badly to the Cats with yet another quarterback. New offensive co-ordinator to go with their new CEO and general manager. Not good.
