Here’s our CFL Power Rankings following week 4 brought to you by Moose Light and Doyle Corporate Image! Wray and Andy are starting to butt heads…
cfl week 4
Wray’s Quick Take

Winnipeg holds on to top spot with the win over Ottawa. I am putting Edmonton back into the #2 spot as they are definitely the 2nd best team in the CFL. Ottawa holds at #3 and Calgary jumps two spots with their win on the road against Saskatchewan. Arbuckle looked impressive! Montreal climbs back up my rankings after knocking off the Ti-Cats and BC falls as the Lions are NOT a good football team. The only reason why they stay ahead of Toronto is… Well my Leave it last week on the Podcast concerning the entire Argos organization was accurate!!!

Andy’s Quick Take

I think Wray is overreacting to things week to week… Seeing the defending Grey Cup champs play that way with their backup at the helm is all I needed to see. “They are who we thought they were!”…. to steal a timeless football quote. The Ti-Cats needed a splash of cold water and they get one… As much as I wanted to award BC for beating the Argos… and even more so!!!, award the Als for catching Hamilton sleeping… I can’t. The teams are exactly where they should be.

  1. Always interesting to read!

    I’d like to hear Andy’s logic behind ranking BC ahead of Montreal. BC is 1-3, their only win came by 1 point against the Argos (that Andy ranked 9th) and they’ve looked worst week after week. The Alouettes are 1-2, won against Hamilton (that Andy ranked 4th) and have improved each week.

    I’m not saying Montreal is clearly a better team but I don’t see any reason to rank BC ahead of them after 4 weeks.

    Thanks in advance 🙂

    1. Hi Jeremy. You make good points here. As I mentioned in my quick blurb below the rankings, I was very tempted to award both BC and Montreal somehow for their victories, and yes, Montreal beat the much better team. But I accused Wray of overreacting week to week so I decided to under react instead… There is a case to make for Montreal to be ahead of BC, but I would like to see more success from Montreal and more failure from BC before I make that move… if the Als can run the ball like that (or even close) on the road in Ottawa I will be very impressed.
