TOR @ WPG Take the Peg ... O'Shea's guys play hard. Trestman and Ray are top notch.

CGY @ MTL Take Calgary ... Montreal does not have a cupboard full of talent IMO. Be nice if Jacques' boys could steal one. But how? Keep the score low. Durant plays well. Sutton runs well. Thorpe's defence plays lights out. Bo has the flu. Messam parties late into the night prior to the game.

OTT @ EDM ... Hmmmm ... Good matchup. Be nice of Ottawa can upset the Schmos in Edmonton. Harris vs Reilly. Wow.

BC @ HAM ... Could we lay an egg? Play a stinker? Ya never know. We should win this one. Hamilton has shown little on offence, defence or playing with discipline or spirit. If Hamilton loses another one, I think Kent Austin might begin planning his next career move. He has not shown a propensity for staying in one place. Ever since Wally came to town we have had some trouble in Hamilton. Heck, Dante Marsh got torched by Danny McManus way back when. Braley's BBQ does not seem to help matters.

Does Trevor Harris have a good resume? Yeah. Taylor made for the CFL. IMO he is probably a better QB than many in the NFL.

TOR @ WPG

Toronto pays a visit to the west for the first time this season as they take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers to start Week 4. Lead by the steady hand of Ricky Ray, the Argos have impressed in their first three outings of 2017. The 37-year-old pivot has tossed a league-leading 1,199 yards while connecting with his favourite target SJ Green for highlight reel grabs time and time again. Although, they’ll have their hands full this week with the Bombers’ ball-hawking defence that has already collected four interceptions on the year (the most in the CFL).

Don’t count out the Bombers after their Week 3 performance, a loss to the Calgary Stampeders, as they look to get back into the win column. With Matt Nichols at quarterback – the Bombers are 11-4 since he took over as the starter – Winnipeg has the power to turn things around and both the writers and fans think they will. Weston Dressler has emerged a threat in the Bombers’ receiving corps and Andrew Harris has been dangerous both on the ground and catching passes out of the backfield.

CGY @ MTL

The red-hot Calgary Stampeders have yet to record a loss in 2017 as Bo Levi Mitchell and co. sit on top of the West Division. It’s not a surprise that the Stamps picked up right where they left off in 2016 after they were one of the teams in the league that didn’t make very many changes to their roster in the off-season. With Mitchell under centre, Jerome Messam in the back field and Mr. Reliable, Marquay McDaniel, catching passes, the Stamps’ offence is as dangerous as ever. Plus, on defence, Alex Singleton has continued his exceptional play from his rookie season as he sits second in the league in tackles with 24, only trailing BC’s Solomon Elimimian (29).

At 1-2, it’s not time for the Montreal Alouettes to panic any time soon. The Als sit second in the East Division and have shown glimpses of what they’re capable of. Veteran quarterback Darian Durant will soon get into a rhythm and with receivers Ernest Jackson, BJ Cunningham and Nik Lewis at his disposal, they have the potential to be lethal.

Writers: 100% Calgary
Fans: 94% Calgary

OTT @ EDM

The last time these two teams met was in the nation’s capital as both teams fought through the snow in the Eastern Final. While this time there won’t be a white, cold blanket covering the field, Ottawa will be looking to cool off the Eskimos, who are undefeated so far this season. The Esks have yet to lose a game while the REDBLACKS have yet to win. Something has to give for one of these teams.

With Greg Ellingson leading the league in receving yards (369), receptions (25) and targets (34) and Diontae Spencer impressing on special teams, Edmonton will have their hands full trying to contain both of them. However, coming off a Week 3 bye, the Esks will be rested and refreshed as they look to keep Ottawa winless in 2017.

Fans: 73% Edmonton

BC @ HAM

It might be a little early to hit the panic button for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, but you might call Saturday night’s game a must-win. The Ticats offence has seemed out of sorts in their first two outings and their defence has also seen better days. While injuries have hit Hamilton this season – receiver Terrence Toliver and defensive backs Emanuel Davis and Abdul Kanneh have been sidelined – they still have the pieces to make things work. With the help and confidence of the 13th man – the fans at Tim Hortons Field will be getting their first look at the Tabbies this weekend – Hamilton will try for their first win of the season.

BC, on the other hand, is looking to sweep their eastern swing with one final victory on the road in Hamilton. Jonathon Jennings, as always, has been calm, cool and collected under centre and Solomon Elimimian is a force to be reckoned with on defence. Writers and fans are siding with the visitors to come out on top and head back to BC with 3-0 on the their road trip.

Not much love for East Division teams from writers or fans. I still think Ottawa is as good as anyone, and unlucky to be 0-2-1. I'd love to see them knock off the Esks. I also picked Montreal to go to the Grey Cup this year. The Als' offence is capable of playing much better than it has in the first three weeks. And Toronto is much improved under Marc Trestman, with a healthy Ricky Ray throwing the ball. The battle of the divisions should not be as lopsided as it has been in past years.

High scoring affair in Winnipeg. Toronto leading 22-20 at the half. They should have a bigger lead except the receivers dropped two sure touchdowns plus they had a kick return nullified by an iffy penalty.

Missed scoring opportunities in the first half ultimately cost the Argos as they dropped a 33-25 decision.

Another super CFL game.

Tight finish.

Two no-calls, roughing on Ray.

Bombers play tough.

Harris player of the game. 17 for 81, 2 TDs. Way to go, Andrew.
