Now that pre-season is over and the cuts have been made, how do you see the standings this year?

My Take:

West

Edmonton - Won't have the injuries they had last year
Calgary - Finally down a notch, but can't bet against a healthy BLM
Winnipeg - First third of the season will hurt their standings
BC - Jennings 'getting it back' is a better bet than Collaros 'getting it back'
Regina - QB and OL problems aren't a good combo

East

Toronto - Looked really good in the last third of last season and I don't see anyone else who is better in the east
Ottawa - Call it a gut feeling and they have less problems than Hammy
Hamilton - Masoli and Manziel will create a circus atmosphere, could go to #2 if they can both handle it, but history isn't on Manziel's side
Montreal - Wonky Willie isn't a starting QB in the CFL and that's only part of their problems

West

Will be very tight top to bottom. 11 wins may get you 1st place this year.

1. Edmonton - Still not sure about the head coach, but solid all around otherwise.
2. Calgary - Still going to be good, but Grey Cup failures start to infiltrate psyche.
3. Winnipeg - Knowing their qb depth is going to be challenged for a few games drops them from 1st to 3rd.
4. Saskatchewan - Despite his past success, I just don't like the way Jones runs that team. He just doesn't fit.
5. BC - Will be in the mix until October, but somebody has to be last. 

East

1. Toronto - Will compete with any west team.
2. Ottawa - Bounce back year. Good chemistry and good quarterbacking.
3. Hamilton - Glanville? Steinhauer?. Who's in charge of what and who? A bit of a circus there.
4. Montreal - No indication things are going to get better there.

Nichols being hurt is a huge factor for the Bombers.  I am hedging that Nichols will be out longer than just 4 games and that rookie or limited experience QB?s don?t fare well..

Agree with these picks, although I think any of the the top 3 in West could be first depending on injuries. Also think Sask and BC will be in a tight race for 4th. Ott and Ham should make for a good battle for 2nd in the east. Mtl's D should be decent, but will be on the field a lot, especially after Willy gets injured again because he hangs onto the ball too long.

Have to agree.  Going to be tough sledding without Nichols.

Here are my picks:

West
Edmonton: Riley is to good of a QB not to succeed.
Cal: BLM will win games for them, at least during the season Shocked.
Wpg: We should be at least in 3rd and possibly 2nd depending on how we do while Nicholls is out.
BC: Should be stronger than Sask.
Sask: Right where they should be...last.

East
Tor: Best in the east.
Ham: Mazzoli and or Manziel will get them some wins, I think it will be Manziel.
Ott: Finishes just below Ham in a tight race.
Mtl: No QB, no chance.
