CFL Pick 'Em, Week Three: Every single East Division team comes away with a win, shocking anyone who has even glimpsed the CFL standings over the past few years. Which means that in our little pick 'em, the rookies are piling on and the vets are sinking. Grab your PFD and make your picks inside.

How about that East Division? Hamilton spanks Winnipeg, Montreal easily handles Calgary, Ottawa makes it look easy against B.C., and Toronto bends-but-doesn't-break its way to a double OT win in Saskatchewan.

Some short but sweet streaks will get stress-tested in Week 3. Say that three times fast!


Ottawa @ Edmonton (Thursday, July 9)
Everyone who thought Ottawa would be 2-0 to start the season, raise your hands. Now everybody who thinks Edmonton can contend without a healthy Mike Reilly at QB, raise your hands. Something's gotta give here.

Montreal @ Winnipeg (Friday, July 10)
The story with these 1-1 teams is their two young quarterbacks with rising star power: Drew Willy for Winnipeg and Jonathan Crompton Dan LeFevour Rakeem Cato? Who the heck is Rakeem Cato? And he threw three touchdowns against Calgary last week? I got nothing.

Saskatchewan @ B.C. (Friday, July 10)
Who thought this would be an early battle of the basement? It's early, but both teams need their D to step up in order to notch the first W.

Toronto @ Calgary (Monday, July 13)
Toronto continues their Magical Mystery Pam Am Games Road Trip with a stop in Calgary, who just got flat-out embarrassed last week. But the big question is: do you believe in Trevor Harris?

Good luck!

I thought I had missed the deadline, but lo and behold, the game is still 10 minutes away. OK, I will make the pick for tonight's game and follow up with the rest of the stuff tomorrow. My apologies for putting you to extra work, Dr. John.

I will never sell the RedBlacks short again. After all, red and black are the colors of my alma mater, Northeastern University in Boston. I have doubted them twice, and now I will pick them. They get Edmonton at an opportune time, what with the Eskimos having their lead dog, Reilly, out with a case of mange or something. Ottawa has some ability to defend and have managed to put some points on the board in their first two. Ottawa by 8.

Tune in tomorrow for the rest of the picks.
