CFL Pick 'Em, Week 11: Decisive Labour Day wins may set the tone for the second half, but in our Pick 'Em, nothing is even close to being decided. Join the chaos and make your picks inside.

Montreal looks decidedly un-Montrealish as B.C. beats them at home in a strong showing, while Saskatchewan comes up with a win at home against the Bombers. Toronto can't seal the deal in the Hammer, but their showing was strong compared to Edmonton's in Calgary.

It's all downhill from here. With Labour Day in the rear view mirror, it's only nine short weeks until the post-season.


Calgary @ Edmonton (Friday, September 10) This is going to be one of the toughest home-and-homes that Edmonton's ever faced. But at least they've got nowhere to go but up... right?

Montreal @ Hamilton (Saturday, September 11) With the two-game sweep of the Argos, there's a swagger in the Hammer. And maybe the Alouettes, coming off a tough home loss, are vulnerable. But rumour has it that Calvillo returns this week. Keep your eye on the ticker for the latest.

Toronto @ B.C. (Saturday, September 11) Toronto is looking for any signs of hope after losing two tough games to their hated rival. Maybe a West coast trip will clear the senses.

Saskatchewan @ Winnipeg (Sunday, September 12) Winnipeg looks for revenge at home, and wouldn't you know it? Saskatchewan—who must be the favourites this week—has only won once on the road this season.

Good luck!

I said it last week, and I feel an extra need to say it this week: Calgary just can't score 40+ again. Edmonton has got to find the endzone at some point too. So I'm gonna cross my fingers and pray to the football gods that the EE can keep this one respectable. In the end though, I'd have to be on glue to think they can pull out a win, especially at the only home game I've got to miss this year. Sorry, boys ... Stampeders by 8.

Hamilton favored over the Als--who would've thunk it? Apparently, McPherson is starting at QB for Montreal too, which surprises me a bit since Santos didn't look too bad all things considered. McPherson hasn't played this year because of injury. I'm gonna have to go with the line on this one and pick the TigerCats. Line is three-and-a-half, so I think a field goal just might be the difference. By 3.

Give guys like Geroy Simon, and even Casey Printers, some swagger and they could be dangerous. The Argos could be in even tougher, 'cause the Lions haven't won at home yet this season either. So they're doubly motivated. But the Argos, deep down, really want to give Edmonton a fighting chance. That, and tommy and Weedy both pick the Argos, so I'm gonna go with the Argonauts too--by 11.

So owlhouse goes to a library in Cambodia. Asks the librarian if he can borrow some books on suicide. "No," she says emphatically. "You won't bring 'em back." Roughriders by 2.

Scare at Commonwealth Stadium

Edmonton Eskimo's practice at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton was delayed nearly two hours late yesterday, after several players reported finding an unknown white powdery substance on the ground.

Practice was immediately suspended while Edmonton Police Service and Commonwealth Security officials completed an investigation.

After a thorough analysis, Edmonton Police forensic experts determined that the white substance, unfamiliar to most of the players, was in fact, the goal line.

Practice was allowed to resume after Police and Security decided the team was unlikely to encounter the substance again.

SORRY EE fans, it just came across the wire.

They're pluckin' banjos like crazy in Winnipeg right now:

Saskatchewan 2 - Winnipeg 31

Some real head-scratchin' going on for CFL fans across the whole league after this weekend.

Yes, I made a mistake in the Points column-- you got two points. However, the Total Points number is correct. You scored two points for 27 total.
