The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Power Rankings, Week 19: CFL playoff seedings make no sense

Power Rankings, Week 19: CFL playoff seedings make no sense

CFL Power Rankings Week 19
Publish Date: 10/22/2017
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Seedings, schmeedings. Once the CFL playoff bracket is set, you might just as well throw the seedings out the window. With the way things stand, the sharpest-looking team will enter the Grey Cup playoffs as the supposed no. 6 seed โ€“ and thereโ€™s lots of other stuff that doesnโ€™t make any sense, either. Just check out the Grueling truthโ€™s CFL power rankings for this week and youโ€™ll see what we meanโ€ฆ

1) Calgary Stampeders โ€“ The Stamps have had a great season. The question is are they looking vulnerable headed into the playoffs? This is a veteran team so maybe it’s boredom? Or maybe the Riders are just that good?

Next up: at Edmonton Eskimos

2) Saskatchewan Roughriders โ€“ Actually it was real hard for me not to just put the Riders number one here. Duron Carter gets a pick six off Bo Levi Mitchell and the Stamps only score 7 points. The Riders are very much a real Grey Cup contender.

Next up: host Montreal Alouettes

3) Winnipeg Blue Bombers โ€“ The Bombers have not played as well of late and the question for them is much the same as the question for the Stamps: Are they in trouble or maybe just a little bored?

Next up: host BC Lions

4) Edmonton Eskimos โ€“ The Edmonton Eskimos completed an impressive comeback on the road in their 35-29 overtime victory against the BC Lions on Saturday night, scoring an incredible 22 unanswered points after surrendering 22 unanswered points earlier in the game. The Esks have now won three straight and are still in the fight for second place in the West Division with just two games left to play.

Next up: host Calgary Stampeders

5) Toronto Argonauts โ€“ The Argos are on the brink of an Eastern title and have played well over the last month or so of the season. All they need to win the East is an Ottawa loss this week or to win themselves in week 20.

Next up: bye week

6) Ottawa Redblacks โ€“ The Redblacks were on a bye this week.

Next up: host Hamilton Ti-Cats

7) Hamilton Tigers-Cats โ€“ The Ti-Cats beat Montreal, thats not saying much, but they have been beating almost everybody since new head coach June Jones has taken over.

Next up: at Ottawa Redblacks

8) BC Lions โ€“ The Lions once again blew a close game โ€“ kind of the story of their season.

Next up: at Winnipeg Blue Bombers

9) Montreal Alouettes โ€“ They still suck.

Next up: at Saskatchewan Roughriders
