The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / CFL Power Rankings Week 2

CFL Power Rankings Week 2

Week 2 Power Rankings!
Publish Date: 06/19/2018
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

1) Saskatchewan Roughriders (1-0)

Everybody came to see quarterback Zach Collaros play his first game for the Roughriders, but they went away talking about the Riders’ defense after a first half that saw the explosive Argonaut offense, led by quarterback Ricky Ray, held to just 4 points. The Riders have it all, a very good quarterback, a great running game, and it looks like the defense, at least for now, is one of the best in the CFL. When the offense starts clicking the Riders will be very hard to beat, if they are not already.

Next Up: @Ottawa


2) Calgary Stampeders (1-0)

The Stamps did not pull away from the Hamilton Ti-Cats until the fourth quarter and Bo Levi Mitchell was not his usual self, but the Stamps got the win. After losing running back Jerome Messam the question had to be asked: will the Stamps still be a good team on the ground? If the season opener is any indication, they will be. The Stamps were led on the ground by Don Jackson, who rushed for 87 yards. The Stamps are usually slow starters out of the gate and maybe that will happen again this year, but by the end of the season I look for them to be in their usual place challenging for another Grey Cup Championship.

Next Up: @Toronto

3) Edmonton Eskimos (1-0)

Sean Whyte kicked the game-winning field goal to seal the deal as the seconds ticked off the clock at Investors Group Field. Mike Reilly moved the Eskimos down the field to tie things up with just under two minutes left in the contest and that eventually led to the game-winning kick. As long as Mike Reilly is the quarterback for the Eskimos they are a threat to win any game they are in.

Next: Home vs Hamilton

4) Winnipeg Blue Bombers (0-1)

Backup QB Streveler had his CFL debut. The 23-year-old connected on 15 of his 28 passes for 178 yards to go along with the three touchdowns. The Bombers had a shot to win the game but came up short in the end. The big take away here is that a lot of people thought they were just going to try to keep their heads above water for the first month of the season with Matt Nichols out due to injury, but Streveler may be able to win the Bombers some games.

Next: @Montreal

5) Toronto Argonauts (0-1)

The Argos just couldn’t get the offense going in a season-opening loss at Saskatchewan. Is this a sign of things to come? Probably not as the Argos are a talented team and as the season progresses they will win their fair share of games.

Next Up: Host Calgary

6) Ottawa Red Blacks (0-0)

The Redblacks had a week one bye and it will be interesting to see how their revamped roster will perform.

Next Up: Host Saskatchewan

7) B.C. Lions (1-0)

Jonathon Jennings got his 2018 season off to a hot start, completing 20 of 24 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns while also adding a career-high 57 yards on the ground. Now the question has to be, can Jennings consistently play at a high level? If he can, the Lions’ roster is good enough to move up these rankings.

Next Up: BYE

8) Hamilton Tiger-Cats (0-1)

The Ti-Cats led most of the game against Calgary but when crunch-time came the Stamps took over. This is a team that will get better as the season progresses.

Next Up: @Edmonton

9) Montreal Alouettes (0-1)

This shapes up as a long season for Alouette fans. Montreal is in a rebuilding phase which will take some time.

Next Up: Host Winnipeg
