2016 CFL Preview: West Division

The west division is home to some of the best teams in the league with a three-year Grey Cup run as they enter a new season looking to make it four in a row.

NHL Week in Review (April 13-19)

The NHL playoff are officially underway as the march towards the Stanley Cup began this week with 16 teams looking to put their names on the cup. To do this they will need to adjust to a different type of hockey as playoff hockey is a completely different beast than the regular season. Everything changes in the playoffs as the superstars are checked tighter and the ice shrinks for everyone. Defence and goaltending generally take the focus with games becoming tighter and tighter as the playoffs move on.

Tuesday Morning QB (CFL Week 8)

In the first of two bye weeks there were only two games and they were both very important. The Argos and the Riders faced off in a battle of one win teams as they both attempted to get their second win and try to turn their season around. Then the Eskies and the B.C. Lions met as two teams faced off as they passed each other on the season escalator. B.C. was looking to continue their climb and the Eskies were beginning to fall. As Labour Day approaches teams begin to prepare for the inevitable changes that come at the official midway point of the season. Labour Day has always been the turning point in every season as players that went to the NFL and didn’t make it begin to return and teams begin to prepare themselves for a playoff run. Coaches will be fired and maybe some GMs too as the teams that are playing below their expectations. The teams that don’t have that problem will be making sure they continue their success or add a few minor pieces in order to get ready of November. Be ready for a lot of movement that has already started thanks to one team’s lack of success on the field this year.

Tuesday Morning QB (CFL Week 6)

The CFL is quickly approaching the halfway mark of the season and teams are preparing to change their seasons, or keep them the same. Winnipeg and Edmonton faced off in a clash of the top two teams in the league with both surprisingly leading their conferences. Meanwhile Saskatchewan and B.C faced off in a battle of two of the worst teams in the league. The trends have continued as well with the Argos and their offence looking impossibly bad. During the dominance of the Argos Montreal QB Anthony Calvillo broke yet another record this time for most CFL career completions. Montreal had their tumble of two games but now they seem to be back to normal while the Argos don’t seem to be getting better anytime soon. In the other game of the week Hamilton tried to continue their strong play against the Calgary Stampeders who have not played up to their standard as of late. The Stamps finally got back to normal beating the Ti-Cats.
