CFL Pick 'Em, Week 8: Heading into the bye week, it's a wide-open race, both in our standings and in any location that is not north or west of Calgary. Flunk fifth-grade geography again and make your picks inside.

B.C. is no match for a hungry Saskatchewan as the Riders roll. Hamilton puts on an offensive show to move to 3-1 against the Bombers this year. Toronto serves notice that they may, just may, be a force to be reckoned with this year. And in Calgary, Edmonton serves notice of a very different sort.
Spitztengle's green and gold heartbreak will be offset somewhat by a big six-point week to jump into contention. But Weedy keeps pace with four of his own to stay atop the leaderboard.
Are we at the first bye week already? Where did the first seven weeks go?
Winnipeg @ Montreal (Thursday, August 19)
Does Montreal's loss this week mean that they're fallible? Maybe. But facing a down-on-their-luck Winnipeg team at home is a great way to get back on your horse.
Hamilton @ Toronto (Friday, August 20)
Hamilton is a not-so-horrible 3-4 on the season, but all three of their wins have come against Winnipeg. They'll be looking to prove something against the newest Eastern heavyweight, but will have a long way to go.

For some reason I didn't get the memo that Calgary was going to crush Edmonton.
Montreal by 10

Montreal by 27
Toronto by 10 .... and the Argos will boast their largest crowd of the season at 23,015 (sad - a team from TO that could contend can't sell tickets, and the Loafs sellout)

Schultzie, is struggling this season so far. Montreal by 16. He's upset with his performance. Toronto by 2. But misses the witty, story-lined picks by owlhouse more.

I just have the feeling that this week's games are gonna be tight contests. In Montreal, I think that they'll have their hands full with the Bombers this week. If this wasn't at McGill, I might even call an upset. Definitely no cover. Larks by 3.
In the Big Smoke, again I think that the visiting Tabbies will really give the Argos fits. Arland Bruce will haunt the Double Blue. Big plays on special teams are a real likelihood with these two also. In the end, as much as I want to see the TiCats steal one, the Argos hold them off, win by 2.

Sorry they're comin' in so late this week.

Montreal: Avon Cobourne sits this one out.
Winnipeg: Whittaker (who?) in at kicker. Jyles starts at QB.
No real news outta the TiCat or Argo camps, other than Middlebrooks (CB - groin) will not dress for the Argos.

Roster Reports: [on edit]
Guess that was Whitaker who was in for Cobourne, not as WPG kicker. Palady or some other newbie was the kicker.

If you're wondering what happened to Calvillo, he's got a bruised sternum. Of course, they won't say how long he'll be out.
For discussion: who else in this league would rival Calvillo as being a "franchise player"? i.e., what player would have his coach run out on the field to see how he was doing (as Trestman did when Calvillo went down). Anyone?
