I have been looking for TV broadcasts in the U.S. without luck so far. Does anyone know if the NFL or Altitude will be showing CFL games this year? TIA

When your starting QB has been a career journeyman, always overthrows his wide open receivers and only has 1 touchdown pass on the season even after a 42-10 win by the club, you know that he is terrible.

Well, after a 42-10 win to get to 2-1, I'd say this prediction is on pretty thin ice.

Edmonton's defense is way too dominant for them to suck to such an absurd level. If they can find mere competency at the QB level they are a Grey Cup threat.

Probably time to start looking at other options at QB though. Jyles misses way too many open receivers. I was willing to give him a chance, and I think that chance might be up.

Prefontaine seems to be done in Toronto.

Riders completely fell apart in the 4th quarter. Durant throws a terrible interception; their two best receivers drop easy catches that could have won them the game; and the defense just wilted and gave the Stamps everything.

What a game. As they say in the CFL, "no lead is safe". Riders blew it bigtime.

How did EDM beat the Lions in B.C. Place?! FOTS is shaking in his boots with that 5 win prediction.

Thanks llb9977. Looks like I will have to wait a month but at least I'll get to see the Grey Cup.

Good thing the Edmonton defence is putting points up like nobody's business. The offence sure isn't.

Very surprised in EDM winning last night, their D looks fantastic. Love the way Kavis Reed coaches, yelling at guys who just made the play to stop the lions on second down because he was supposed to blitz lol. Such a boss, could only imagine how deadly they would be with a half decent QB.

Showboating caused a Ticat player to get knocked down at the 1 yard line rather than get a Touchdown.

Typical Alouettes disastrous performance at Ivor Wynne so far.

I've thought Chris Williams looks like a DeSean Jackson clone for a while now, and tonight he confirmed it. lol

While the offense isn't putting up enough points, they're at least protecting the ball and avoiding the huge momentum-killing sacks that Ray was notorious for. I like the way Jyles gets rid of the ball quickly. With the defense playing the way it is, the offense simply has to not screw up. Tillman surely deserves some credit for putting together this dominant unit. Still liking 5-13?

momentum killing sacks? Let's be serious here. Every drive is basically a 2 and out. The team started out better last season because they actually had a quarterback. Its not realistic to expect the defence to keep putting up points like this and when that stops so will the wins.

Can't believe EDM traded Ray for him. IMO, they will not make playoffs because of that one decision, there is literally about 16 other QB's in the league I would take over Jyles.

Ray taking sacks repeatedly for big losses because he refused to get rid of the ball on time was a huge problem last year. All I'm saying is, it's pleasant to not be screaming "get rid of it!!" every third play with Jyles under center.

Lets be clear, Tillman better be looking for a replacement for Jyles, because he hasn't been good enough. But I don't for a second think that this team would be any better off with Ray. 3-2 start isn't a disaster. Sucks that it should be 4-1 after absolutely giving a game away to Winnipeg last night, but I can live with 3-2.

The defense may not continue actually scoring points, but there's no reason to believe they can't keep up their current pace of only giving up about 15 per game, or close to it. I have never seen open field tackling this good in my life. If they maintain that pace, they'll still win more than they lose even with Jyles' poor play.

This Alouette defense has become almost unfathomably bad. They were a dominant force for a long time in this league. Now they look like they belong in the NCAA.
