1. Calgary Stampeders
Close at the end, but overall the Stamps were in control against the Tiger-Cats at home, who are now a good team with Zach Collaros. Mitchell is either the best or second best quarterback in the CFL, a good set of receivers plus Messam at running back and a good defence.
2. BC Lions
Definitely the surprise of the league so far. Jennings is a quality CFL quarterback that most defensive ends have a tough time running down.
3. Hamilton Tiger-Cats
The Cats played the Stamps tough at home in a loss, but Collaros is looking good in his return. Tolliver is starting to have a good year which makes the Hamilton receiving core even stronger. C.J. Gable hasn't looked good this year. Secondary is still somewhat meh.
4. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Get rid of Drew Willy and suddenly the Bombers are hot with Nichols. Back to back games with the Riders isn't going to hurt their confidence either.
5. Edmonton Eskimos
Definitely hot and cold and should be better. Beating the Riders at home isn't particularly indicative of anything. Reilly is still healthy though.
6. Ottawa REDBLACKS
After a hot start of the season, Ottawa is suddenly mired in mediocrity. The Burris Harris quarterback thing might be turning toxic.
7. Toronto Argonauts
At least Ray is back.
8. Montreal Alouettes
Should the Alouettes fire GM/coach Jim Popp from every role? I'm starting to think so.
9. Saskatchewan Roughriders
