CFL Pick 'Em, Week 3: Alright, that's enough warmup. This week's for REAL. We're gonna score some points, get on top, and finally figure out who the heck Edmonton has been starting at quarterback. Grab your playbook and make your picks inside.

Winnipeg discovers that the best way to beat Montreal at home is to not let them score. Toronto is kicking themselves for not trying the same strategy as they lose in B.C.. Saskatchewan makes an early statement about their thoughts on the west division, while Hamilton drops their "home" opener although in their defence, half their players got on the wrong GO bus and ended up in Pickering.

bender has a strong five-point week to jump into contention, but YYM's fast start keeps him on top.

Two weeks is a random pattern. Three weeks is a narrative.


Saskatchewan @ Toronto (Thursday, July 11)
It's last year's champs versus this year's hosts. Saskatchewan seems to have taken a page from the Argos' "win the Grey Cup at home" playbook and have started the season on fire. Narrative!

Calgary @ Montreal (Friday, July 12)
Vive le baconateur! The other two teams of destiny look to shake off tough losses. Calgary in particular doesn't want to get into too much of a hole too early.

Winnipeg @ Hamilton (Saturday, July 13)
Winnipeg leaves their brand new stadium to visit... Guelph. Hamilton has a chance to redeem themselves by actually figuring out where their stadium is this week. (Yes, I plan on keeping this up all season.)

B.C. @ Edmonton (Saturday, July 13)
B.C. is still pretty good and I've never heard of Edmonton's quarterback before. Narrative?

Good luck!

Sorry I'm late, so I will omit the Thursday game.

Montreal by 13 (saw them on ESPN 2 last week; surely the Als cannot be that pathetic again)

I arrive fashionably late, as always...I figured I'd spot you guys a head start, just to make it fair.
