2016 CFL Power Rankings Week 4

Beat the Argos in Torontoville. Trevor Harris is probably better than Henry Burris at quarterback.

2. Edmonton Eskimos
Like last year the Eskimos keep winning. Mike Reilly passed for a ton of yards against Winnipeg this last week so that and him not being injured is a positive.

3. Calgary Stampeders
Didn't play, but that also means no injuries. Jerome Messam looks to be having a monster year.

4. BC Lions
The Lions were behind the Riders when I stopped watching the game and then roared back to win against the hapless Riders. I didn't think the Lions would be good at all this week, but turns out they are.

5. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
The first half was poor, but they pulled ahead in the second half despite the mediocrity of backup Jeremiah Masoli. Banks is back this season doing his special teams thing, Maher kicked extraordinarily well and the defence looks good, especially Tracy. Collaros could be back soon too.

6. Toronto Argonauts
Mediocre. Not terrible, but not good either. I thought their defence would be better, but it will probably improve as the season goes on.

7. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Are they better than last year? I guess.

8. Montreal Alouettes
Kevin Glenn better come back, otherwise it is going to be another bad season for Montreal.

9. Saskatchewan Roughriders
Have to win a game to get out the power rankings basement. With Durant injured I suppose they are potentially worse.
