As for the Toronto QB situation. They are in trouble if Ray is out for any length of time. Fajardo is going to have a short career if his go to play is scramble scramble scramble, with the occasional safe throw.
Yeah you can tell how raw the guy is. It doesn't help that he doesn't have much protection. He's got an arm though just need to be accurate. I think with a better protection and not panic most of the time he might be the next Collaros or Harris or he can a bust. Trestman is a good teacher for QB. Unfortunately Fajardo doesn't look like he's ready yet and you are right Argos are in trouble without Ray. Luckily for them the rest of Eastern teams sucks as well.

Weak in the East has become a design flaw in the CFL. I have to wonder if the division format is prolonging this somehow - knowing you can get a playoff bye with a 50-50 record - is somehow lowering the sights of eastern teams?

I really wish the league would do away with the divisions and either go with a 4 team playoff - or keep the 6 team playoff with the top 2 teams getting round one byes.

What is Cory Johnson doing there? O’Shea with the horse collar to pull him off the field.

Collaros is awful with his decision making right now. Keeping the ball while the pocket is scrmabling, at least throw it away. His wide side field throw of his are awful too, even Nichols is hitting those and I'm sure no one would've taken Nichols over Collaros to start the season.

I picked Hamilton too because I thought if there's any game they'll turn it around, it would be against Winnipeg. They have some kind of rivalry with the Bombers so i figured Ticats players will be so pumped up playing them at home. I guess they are just plain bad team.
I also picked Ottawa to win over Edmonton. So I am NOT doing so well this week.

I also picked Ottawa, but I hedged my bet making it my one point game. I'm no fan of the Eskimos, but you have to admire how they've continued to win with all the injuries that team have accumulated this season.

I am going to be so ticked off if an Eastern team upset the Western team in Grey Cup again this season. Unless they beat Saskatchewan, which will never happen this season because Riders should be taken off the Western playoff race already. But seriously though, last season was the same thing. Ottawa was awful early on then started playing well. Never would imagine them even be in the game let alone beat the Stamps. I agree with Corral, they should every teams in one division and top 6 makes it with the top 2 teams gets the bye in the quarterfinals. Like if the CFL ends today, it is fair to see Calgary, BC and even Winnipeg fighting it off to make the playoffs while Toronto will get a bye and Montreal makes the playoff. The way Hamilton and Ottawa they don't deserve to even get a shot. It sucks that every season we have at least 4 or 5 teams in Western Division much better than the 1st and 2nd place team in the East.

That and then move the season ahead and fix the officiating and Ambrosie will be a super-star.

The problem with a non-divisional alignment is what would happen if say Saskatchewan andCalgary played in a grey cup that was hosted in Montreal. A great matchup and a great rivalry but it could be devastating for the crowds because no one out east would care.

I haven't seen Jock Climie and Shultzie for a few weeks now. Are they still working for TSN or they got in trouble and got canned?

Wow BC is playing really crappy tonight. Their defense can't stop anyone and offense is pretty much non-existence. What the heck happened?
