CFL Handicapping: Best Games In 2011

The CFL kicks off its preseason schedule next week. Here’s at look at the top 10 games we’re looking forward to once the regular season begins.

Week 1: Thursday, June 30-Sunday, July 3

What better way to celebrate the first week of the season—not to mention Canada Day Weekend—with four football games? Montreal and B.C. kick things off Thursday, followed by Winnipeg-Hamilton and Toronto-Calgary on Friday evening, and Edmonton vs. Saskatchewan on Sunday night.

Week 2: Saturday, July 9 – Montreal at Saskatchewan

Just two weeks into the season, we get a rematch between last year’s Grey Cup finalists. The Alouettes earned a 21-18 victory in Edmonton last November and both squads will be expected to compete for another championship.

Consider this an early tone-setter for things to come.

Week 5: Friday, July 29 – Montreal at Hamilton

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have gone 9-9 in each of the past two seasons, both times losing at home in the playoffs. Some believe they’re ready to make a leap to the next level, but they’ll have to get past the East champions first.

Former Montreal running back Avon Cobourne could be the difference-maker.

Week 5: Friday, July 29 – Toronto at Edmonton

Whether or not this game belongs on this list depends on a bit “if”—if Kerry Joseph is starting and playing well at this point. Joseph, a former star with the Argos and Rough Riders, is hoping to overtake Ricky Ray for the starting gig in Edmonton.

If he wins the job, in the next month or so, he’ll get a chance to put on a clinic against his old team.

Week 6: Friday, Aug. 5 – Saskatchewan at B.C.

This marks the first meeting between the Riders and Lions since last year’s playoff battle. The Lions put up a hell of a fight but eventually lost 41-38 in double-overtime.

A win over the Riders in Week 6 could mean B.C. is serious about contending for the West Division championship.

Week 7: Thursday, Aug. 11 – Edmonton at Montreal

A rematch of the 2003 and 2005 Grey Cups. While plenty of faces have changed—and Edmonton has bottomed out since then—Montreal remains the class of the CFL. [ad-4437448]

If the Eskimos are going to turn things around, there’s no better place to start than with a win over the defending Grey Cup champs.

Week 10: Monday, Sept. 5 – Edmonton at Calgary

With a scheduling conflict derailing the annual Toronto-Hamilton matchup, fans will have to settle for just one Labour Day Classic game this weekend.

The Eskimos will be desperate for revenge, as Calgary is 4-1 in the past four Labour Day meetings between these clubs—including winning the past two by a combined score of 84-3.

Week 15: Monday, Oct. 10 – Toronto at Montreal

This will mark the third and final meeting between the Argonauts and Alouettes during the regular season. The road to the Grey Cup often goes through Montreal, so this will be a huge game for the up-and-coming Argos.

Week 17: Friday, Oct. 21 – Saskatchewan at Calgary

The Rough Riders and Stampeders are expected to duke it out for the West title, and this will be their last chance to face each other during the regular season. Expect a playoff-like atmosphere.

Week 19: Thursday, Nov. 3 – Hamilton at Toronto

As if a late-season match up between these bitter rivals isn’t enough, a playoff spot could be on the line.

At the very least, these playoff contenders will be trying to send a message before a potential battle in the postseason.

    Rickey Ray has fell off a bit the last couple of years…..Tillman GM loves Joesph but Joesph struggled badly in Toronto and even though he has a Grey Cup to his name as a Starter…..keep in mind he has a history of being inconsistant and if GLENN [ now a Tiger Cat starter QB ] had not gotten a Broken Arm late in the East semi-finals that year ..GLENN would have then started for Winnipeg and I am sure they would beaten the Saskatchewan Rough Riders and Kerry Joesph becasue he did not play that great in the Grey Cup and they did not win conviningly against Winnipeg’s back up QB starting in his first CFL game,….RAY will keep his job as a starter unless Edmonton struggles out of the gate,,,,,,then Joesph will have his hand at the #1 job.
