2014 CFL Power Rankings Week 13

Some changes in the power rankings this week. Also remember that Tigercatatonia's definition of power rankings is how you would do this coming week if your team was to play. Thus if your starting quarterback can't go. That's going to hurt.

1. Calgary Stampeders
So Bo Levi Mitchell is down but have no fear, Drew Tate is available. Plus they've got Jon Cornish, a good offensive line and a good defence (albeit with some injuries). Plus the West seems like there's a ton of quarterback injuries so being down to Tate isn't so bad.

2. Edmonton Eskimos
Mike Reilly is back at quarterback (I think). Plus the Smos ended up beating Montreal quite handily last week. That's good enough for second overall in a weak CFL.

3. BC Lions
No Travis Lulay whose shoulder seems doomed, but who cares the Lions have Kevin Glenn. If Glenn goes down, the Lions are in trouble, but Glenn has proved historically durable. Apart from that time where he had to miss the Grey Cup.

4. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Home town bias? Maybe. However Collaros is looking excellent and has been by far the best quarterback in the CFL over the past three games. Plus the defence is looking good and Justin Hickman is back (but not this week) at defensive end.

5. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Having no Drew Willy is problematic for the Bombers who are in a bit of skid. I'm not even sure who the second string quarterback is, but I'm sure he's not any good.

6. Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Riders with Darian Durant were a good team. The Riders without Durant aren't a very good team as last week's debacle in Hamilton proved. I can't imagine the panic amongst the Regina faithful this week. Although they are playing the REDBLACKS which is fortuitous that's for sure.

7. Toronto Argonauts
They came close to beating the Stamps on the road but managed to blow it at the end. Seems like the story of the Argos season.

8. Montreal Alouettes
Didn't look awful against the Eskimos. That's something I guess.

Will they win another game? I'm not sure.
