CFL Pick 'Em, Week Seven: Narratives, we got 'em. Calgary keeps winning, B.C. turns it around, and Montreal makes a trade. Grab your screenplay draft and make your picks inside.

Saskatchewan overcomes a slow start and rides a big third quarter to a solid win in Hamilton. Ottawa digs deep and finds the end zone in the final minute, coming from behind to beat the Lions. Toronto just can't get it together, as the Bombers cruise to victory, and, well, Montreal doesn't fare much better.

Another week, another leader! tahoemoj splurges by nailing the Calgary win, but tommytrump's pick-em-all approach is just as good.

An action-packed slate of games this week! Also Ottawa plays Hamilton.


Edmonton @ Montreal (Thursday, July 26)
Apparently Montreal traded for a quarterback? Has anybody heard about this?

Toronto @ Winnipeg (Friday, July 27)
The Franklin Expedition has gotten a little stuck in the ice. And Winnipeg isn't a great place to go if you're trying to avoid ice.

Ottawa @ Hamilton (Saturday, July 28)
Battle for the division! This heavyweight tilt will be sure to szzzzzzzz both of these teams would be in last place in the West.

Calgary @ Saskatchewan (Saturday, July 28)
Saskatchewan are certainly underdogs, but I think they have a pretty decent shot to hand Calgary their first loss. Either this week or in Week 19.

Good luck!

There is no truth to the rumor that ESPN has offered a payment to the Alouettes in return for a Manziel start. And yet ...

I have fallen to last place, and my face is rouge with embarrassment. Based on what I know about the CFL, I am about where I belong. Now we will see if I can get out of the bottom or if I am destined to fall further.

New QB for Montreal? Eskimos would probably be more interested in a new parka. Edmonton by 11

Wait a minute! I just saw James Franklin on the Big Ten channel talking about the upcoming Penn State season. What is he doing in Winnipeg? Not winning is a good answer. Winnipeg by 8

This almost sounds like a nursery rhyme:
Red Black and Tigercat playing on the field.
One has stripes, one has checks, and one will have to yield.
Stripes flow more smoothly than checks. Hamilton by 15

Will the Stampeders ride the Rough Riders, or will the Rough Riders ride the Stampeders. Somebody is going to fall off and get trampled. Saskatchewan by 4
