2014 CFL Power Rankings Week 2

So the Argos don't totally suck. Who knew?

1. Calgary Stampeders
Still undefeated! Sometimes not playing can do wonders for your power rankings. Still a good team in a sea of mediocrity.

2. Saskatchewan Rough Riders
So they were roughed up in Dead Ted's Dome (TM). I'll chose to believe it is an aberration. Although more sucking will prompt a big drop.

3. Edmonton Eskimos
That's right, two wins in a row! Maybe not against marquee teams (in 2014, the Cats and Lions are apparently no longer marquee teams) but who is to argue with success. Not me. Until they lose against a good team.

4. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Also two wins in a row, including beating the expansion Rot und Schwarz at home by a touchdown and rouge. Willy is looking relatively slick. I smell cross-over playoff spot.

5. Toronto Argonauts
Turns out Ricky Ray and Chad Owens can still play and the Argos can make interceptions. As much as I dislike the double blue, they'll probably be mediocre this year rather than down right smelly.

6. Montreal Alouettes
Managed to beat BC at home with some relatively feeble stats from quarterback Troy Smith. The Alouettes seem to have a decent defence, which is a plus.

7. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Sure they've lost two in a row on the road and their stadium won't be finished. At least in the last game, they only lost by four points and were up going into the fourth quarter before blowing it. Also Collaros is concussed so at least they have both LeFevour and Masoli. Hopefully one won't suck. Plus they've got a bye week.

8. BC Lions
What's up with the Lions? Sure they don't have Lulay right now, but Kevin Glenn is the defacto CFL injury backup at quarterback, no? Seems odd and I don't have a lot of confidence in them.

9. Ottawa redblacks
Well they did OK in their first game. I'm waiting for them to win a game though before moving them from the basement.
