CFL Pick 'Em, Week Eight: Snapped this week: Winnipeg's winning streak, Jeremiah Masoli's ACL, Zach Collaros's streak of not being an Argo. Book your rehab and make your picks inside.

It's a nailbiter in Ottawa, but Calgary converts the game-winning drive. Less so in Edmonton, where the Argos... uh... don't score. Hamilton comes out strong to stop the Bomber streak, but they lose QB Masoli in the process; while out west, Saskatchewan strongly asserts their claim to 4th place.

The CFL continues be allergic to the August long weekend, possibly because BC/Civic/Heritage/Simcoe/Natal/NB/SSK Day has a different name in every province: a marketing nightmare!


Winnipeg @ Toronto (Thursday, August 1)
Toronto has acquired injured QB Zach Collaros to replace injured QB James Franklin. I'm not entirely sure that's how it's supposed to work.

Hamilton @ Saskatchewan (Thursday, August 1)
Hamilton was just getting on a roll, but have lost Masoli for the season to a torn ACL. They've brought in David Watford, who is definitely a real person and not a fictional 1930s British detective.

Ottawa @ Montreal (Friday, August 2)
So... Montreal is good now? And Ottawa is bad now? Am I reading this right?

Edmonton @ Calgary (Saturday, August 3)
These two teams have very similar stat lines and are currently tied for second place. If you were going to pick a tie this season, now's the time.

Good luck!

Well after this week argos get a bye week to start their climb back into the East division ranks and hopefully can look a little more respectable, & who knows maybe even fight for a playoff spot with their new gunslinger. I can hope can't I!

Uh, no ... that ain't how it's supposed to work.

Yikes! I wasn't paying attention to the clock, and here it is, the second half. Well, so much for calling the Winnipeg vs Toronto game. It's not a bad one so far.

Somehow all of the names fit together. David Watford, the Duke of Hamilton. How very Loyalist. This will do them no good in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan by 8

A rogue makes the day very noir for the rouge/noir team. Alouettes need to be careful not to get plucked. Ottawa by 15

It's the battle for bragging rights in Alberta. Tough sledding for the Eskimos or a tight corral for the Stampeders? Edmonton by 9
