CFL Week 7 Review....Week 8 Preview
CFL Week 7: Review
Thursday, August 7
-Toronto Argo’s stunned by visiting Ti-cats 45-21
the east gets a shade murkier
no Lumsden, no Printers, 508 total yards from
-Calgary knocked off the previously undefeated Saskatchewan Rough Riders 30-25
the win moved the Stamps one game over five-hundred and into what would
become, on Friday evening a three way tie for second place in
the CFL’s western conference.
Friday Night Football, August 8
Montreal 39 @ Winnipeg 11
The Blue Bombers offence was held in check through the first quarter of Friday’s game against the travelling Alouettes of Montreal. Winnipeg mustered just eleven point total after being shutout in the first quarter and then limited to just a single in the second. The Bombers offence "came to life" with a field goal in the third and a touchdown, finally in the fourth and final quarter.
I have a funny feeling that the folk in Winnipeg are in for another long, cold winter.
In other action: Lions win, Lions win
Edmonton 34 @ B.C. 40
CFL Week 8: Preview
This week is a bye week in the west, and this means no games west of the Perimeter Highway in beautiful Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Hamilton @ Winnipeg Thursday, August 14
Hamilton heads to Winnipeg this week to sort out the cellar of the eastern conference. If this one seems like a no-brainer, the Ti-cats coming off a 24-point drubbing of the Toronto Argonauts must demolish the piss poor Bombers, right? Wrong.
Hamilton only victories this season have come against an inconsistent Toronto Argonaut’s squad, whose world beater one week, complete dud the next syndrome has this reporter thinking Edward Nigma.
Enigma - 2. An action, mode of action, or thing, which cannot be satisfactorily explained; a puzzle
Montreal @ Toronto Friday, August 15
Toronto will need to at least match the season high thirty-five point output obtained week four against the visiting Eskimos if they are expected to keep pace with the explosive Al’s
Week 8 Game Notes:
Expect to see Winnipeg start quarterback Kevin Glenn at home in place of the ineffective Ryan Dinwiddie
The Ti-cats on the other hand will stick with QB Richie Williams, off a three touchdown, game winning performance against the Boatmen last week.
