Hamilton will have to fight hard to push through Toronto's defence, and even if they do, they'll still be done in by the Argos' special teams. Argonauts 25, Tiger-Cats 17 Saskatchewan has been buzzing, if not winning, but I think they'll pull it off. Edmonton is really the better team, though, so it'll be close. Roughriders 29, Eskimos 27

Hamilton and Edmonton will advance. I may offer more detailed predictions for the division finals, but for now thats all I've got.

Toronto and Edmonton don't advance. Because Grum picked them ;)

I predict one of the games will be snowy.

Toronto and Saskatewan (sp) in an upset.

I caught the Argos-Ticats game (first game I've seen all year -- the upside to the NHL lockout, I guess), and Toronto's defense looks pretty damn good. Damon Allen is older than Abe Vigoda, but he seems to be spreading the field and getting it done. I know nothing about how the West looks this year, but I've always been partial to Saskatchewan.

Yeah, that was smallball. Scratch points onto the board and let your defence do the work. Toronto's offence is entirely Allen (and he wasn't exactly spectacular yesterday), but with good defence and awesome special teams, they can get it done. Prefontaine's pretty impressive; his leg kept the TiCats' back to the wall all night. I was about five rows back, in the endzone, right next to the giant inflatable Frosty. Wheaton's record-breaking TD ran right in front of us. It was awesome.

Oh, and we were right in front of the Prefontaine 51-yard converted punt. I love the rouge.

Looks like the Doc. and jasonbondshow know just what they are talking about. Even gspm got it right, even though only one game ever had a hope of being snowy. As for further predictions I don't see any signifigant upsets. BC will have no problems with Sask. (no matter who plays as QB). BC 32 Sask. 14 Montreal will take care of the Argos. Montreal 28 Argos. 24
