Winnipeg - taking the next step
BC - making moves to be better
Calgary - maybe wishful thinking but I think the reign is over
Edmonton - downward spiral
Sask - train wreck

Hamilton - Not sure about this one. They were bad before Jun Jones. Now he's gone.
Toronto - mediocre steps in rebuilding
Montreal - rebuilding from train wreck
Ottawa - Lost best players - downward spiral

Looking at the east, the west will win a lot of games this year. East will be in the GC with 500 or less record.

Calgary - Won't win as many as last year. BLM is still the difference maker.
BC - Reilly will make a huge difference to a team that just missed last year. The defence will take some time to come together.
Winnipeg - Losing 3 NI all stars will hurt worse than most think. Nichols doesn't get back to his level of play from 2 years ago.
Edmonton - Did a good job of reloading in the off season, but Reilly is a huge loss.
Riders - Worst QB in the west behind a make shift OL without Jones' defence to bail them out.

Hamilton - Bad losing their OC yesterday, but they have a replacement in house. Can't see any other eastern team coming close.
Ottawa - Lost a ton of good players, but are in the right division.
Toronto - Went significantly younger. Will take time to jell.
Montreal - Made some good moves, but not enough to get them out of the basement.

Always an interesting question and the speculation can be fun. I think I'll wait until I start hearing some TC reports from around the CFL.

I am optimistic that we have a pretty solid team and less questions to be resolved going into TC 2019.

Calgary (Because they're Calgary)
Winnipeg (Have strengthened their weaknesses, and could flip spots with Calgary)
BC (Overspending have left them vulnerable in other areas)
Edmonton (Because they're not Saskatchewan)
Saskatchewan (No QB. No OL. No Chris Jones. No Chance)

Hamilton (No one else in the East will be close)
Toronto (Will have a record that would put them last in the west)
Montreal (Shows glimmers of Hope, but still awful)
Ottawa (Awfullest)

If we score more points than them, we will probably win.

Calgary - I think will regress but I've been saying that every year for a decade now so I'll just take them already
Winnipeg - has made me a believer after rounding us out with Chris Matthews. We will have a stellar D with a great set of DBs, a Bighill-led LB corps, and an incredible DL with among the best bookends in the league (+ depth in Roh)
Edmonton - Had a lot of losses and did alright making up for them. They should be average.
BC - Everyone thinking Reilly will carry this entire team of his shoulders is dreaming. The team is gutted other than the throwing game and it's not going to be enough to win more than 7.
Sask - Damaged QB with no OL. Still very good D personnel but now no Chris Jones to tell them what to do.

Hamilton - Default
Whatever for the rest. West crosses over almost certainly.

I would be kind of happy to see Ottawa experience the lows of being a neo-CFL fan. They have been spoiled with playoff games, GC appearances, etc. Time to hurt a bit.

Why are most so down on OTT?  I see them at #2 (or even #1) in the E.  Surely they can't go from perrennial GC-contender to tire-fire in one year?  The coaching staff remained unchanged, right?  I think OTT is a lot like CGY, the secret sauce is the coaching staff and the system.  You can't look back and pin all their success on QB (Burris then Harris), as Harris really isn't that good.  Campbell is good at fielding well-rounded teams, and making good decisions.

I think OTT will do well this year.  I just can't see them sucking as bad as TOR and MTL.

The Bombers need to get first place in the west this season. That is the best odds to make it to the GC. Their mid season swoon last year cost them a chance at that. I also want them beating Calgary IN Calgary in the regular season this year so I can be much more happier leaving McMahon stadium! Wink Cheesy  Then seeing them here again in the Grey Cup in November! GO BLUE! Time to end this ridiculous championship drought! Pretty soon Leafs fans might be laughing/crying at us or at least with us!! Cheesy

OK now that pre-season is done and rosters are mostly settled lets go:

West - not many points will separate 1st from 5th:

BC (Claybrooks and Reilly make a difference)
Calgary (No first place this season)
Sask (will start cold and finish hot)
Winnipeg (will start hot and finish cold)
Edmonton (Maas finally implodes)

East:

Hamilton (Masoli is the real deal)
Montreal (Pipkin and Khari create some magic against all odds)
Toronto (sadly no one cares)
Ottawa (time to pay the piper for losing all those players)

If the Bombers finish 4th or 5th it's time to flush and start another re-build.
