Week Three CFL Action - Winnipeg vs Edmonton

Richard Wolowicz

Edmonton at Winnipeg

  • Bull On Parade - Drew Willy owns the hearts and minds of folks in Manitoba. The Former Buffalo Quarterback is 3-0 as a starter with two heart pounding comebacks under his belt. He is healthy and will once again get the start.
  • Last Week: Stop me if you heard this one before; Drew Willy led his team to a come from behind victory which featured a near perfect late fourth quarter drive. This was not Buffalo back in 2008 nor was it last week against Ottawa. The Legend of Drew Willy continues to grow as he took down Chad Johnson and Montreal with a third down strike with under a minute left as the Blue Bombers beat Montreal.
  • This Week:Edmonton and Winnipeg are the only two 3-0 teams in the CFL after neither was seen as being too highly ranked when the season started. Suddenly this is an early game for the poll position in the Western division.
  • Expectation: Winnipeg has been playing with fire the last two weeks and as the saying goes eventually that kind of game will burn you and the Eskimos have been playing well enough to be the team that makes the Blue Bombers pay. Edmonton 27 - Winnipeg 22

Ottawa vs Toronto

  • Bull On Parade - Natey Adjei - The Rookie has yet to get a touch but as Toronto deals with injuries and performance issues the Argos may start looking to younger layers like Adjei.
  • Last Week: They moved the ball around just fine in the middle of the field but Toronto's offense was flaccid between the 30's. They hung in the game against Calgary but drive after stalled drive they started to fall behind. Eventually Bo Levi Mitchell carved up the Argos for four touchdowns.
  • This Week: A sell out crowd will be on hand to watch the Ottawa RedBlacks play their first regular season home games. The expansion Ottawa team is led by the ageless Henry Burris who's experience in the CFL makes the Agro's secondary very vulnerable.
  • Expectation: Their offense might be better this week but the secondary has yet to look decent this season. Burris and the RedBlacks will bury Toronto. Ottawa 33 - Toronto 28

B.C. vs Montreal

  • Bill On Parade: Ernest Jackson was not a big factor last week. Hampered by an injury during practice the leading BC receiver had just one catch. Hopefully this week EJ will be back on the field and making a difference for his team.
  • Last Week: BC got their first win of the season by taking down the defending CFL champions. Kevin Glenn had a modestly good game passing, his first good outing of the season. The real star for BC was Andrew Harris who put up 203 total yards.
  • This Week: BC will have a second shot at Montreal, trying to make up for an embarrassing week one showing which saw Kevin Glenn throw two interceptions and no touchdowns. Last week Harris did it all this week hopefully Ernest Jackson will be back and the Lions can put forth enough balance on offense to beat the Alouettes.
  • Expectation: Glenn is finding his groove and the running of Harris should help give him even more time. BC 23 - Montreal 17
