Week 3 Preview

Here is a preview written purely from my own ‘fan’ perspective.

Calgary @ Montreal

Word is Anthony Calvillo will miss this one to rest a sore shoulder, making this game a battle of back-up quarterbacks.  Methinks Montreal won’t miss a beat with Adrian McPherson at the helm.  He is their future after all.  As for Kevin Glenn, he’s twice thrown for over 5000 yards in a season.  He’s also been shipped out of every team he’s ever played for.

My pick: Montreal

Winnipeg @ Edmonton

Winnipeg looked plucky in a loss to Montreal.  In Saskatchewan, Edmonton looked shell shocked every time they touched the ball.  However, their defense has proven to be stout thus far, holding opponents to under 20 points in both their games.  I suspect a win won’t be enough for Edmonton.  They need to explode on offense to keep the wolves at bay.

My pick: Winnipeg

BC @ Saskatchewan

Two undefeated teams are playing for top spot in the west.  I did some research, and statistics show that the team who scores the most points will win this one.  Your welcome.  BC showed chinks in their armor last week.  Saskatchewan’s defense is taking on an intimidating hue.  There’s also another score to settle in this game.  Saskatchewan is still angry over what took place in the preseason game between these two teams.  BC blitzed on every play, kept their starters in all half, and ran up the score.  Saskatchewan played its rookies.  This one will be nasty.

My pick: Saskatchewan

Toronto @ Hamilton

It’s almost disappointing that these two teams will meet before Labour Day.  The hatred is there, but as far as the standings go, it’s not quite about 2 points over a divisional rival.  This game is a statement game.  Toronto needs to go into Hamilton and destroy them.  Hamilton needs to punch, gouge, kick, and bleed their way towards a gutty victory.  It’s about identity, and neither team has really established one thus far.

My pick: Toronto
