Surprised by our high ranking given our question marks on our O line and #1 receiver. We could easily fall to 5th depending on how that plays out. That said,  Very early to be ranking anything and every team has question marks at this stage in the season. We don?t have a #1receicer and 2 O line question marks, and Calgary has lost their MLB and some key receivers. We ll see......

BC in #3 is crazy.  It's basically a rebuild and chaos.  Reilly may be a great QB but he can't make a team #3 all on his own: see '18 EDM for proof.

Other than that, I like those rankings!  Job #1 this year is find ways to consistently beat CGY; nothing else matters.

I understand BC at #3, they spent to buy a team, and Claybrooks has that fresh shiny new thing look at HC, and Hervey built the Edm team... so I can understand the optimism... but losing Solly is going to hurt (whether they trade, release or keep him, he's lost the love...)

I have no idea how you can do Power Rankings when so much turnover occurred with many teams.  That said, I do understand they are an on-paper thing.

I have no idea how to order the 4 non-Rider western teams.  Although I think Edm/Cal/BC are much stronger on offense than the Bombers, I would right now put the Bombers top on a full team basis.  They played in the Western Final and have remained the most consistent as far as personnel go. Bombers and the Riders, IMO, have much stronger defenses than BC/Cal/Edm.

Hamilton could make a good run...especially with strength of schedule.  Riders could potentially ride the defense and ST again and get some wins.

Who knows.... lol

I dunno. Every team lost at least one important player. They made the playoffs last year without Solly

Their defence right now looks to be a complete rebuild. They lost a heck of a lot more on defence than just Solly. A lot of their defence is a giant question mark.

Sure. They crossed over and got absolutely annihilated. And that defense is now worse off than it was then.
