Canadian Football League Week # 10 Picks

Eskimos vs. Lions
B.C. dominated Edmonton at home a couple weeks back, nothing should change this week
even with out Dickenson

Lions by 10

Als vs. Argos
Matches between these teams are usually quite close. Argos were able to snap their losing
streak last week and now have some confidence. The Als on the other had their win streak
put to a halt last week. The Don will have his guys ready this week.

Als by 5

Ti-Cats vs. Riders
The Cats must be thankful this game is not at home where they managed two points
in two games. They would be still on a losing streak if not for 3rd and 4th sting Qb's
in Winnipeg.

Take the Riders by 17

Last week 3-1 Over-all 20-14

Canadian Football League Players of the week

Calgary Stampeders quarterback Henry Burris was named CFL offensive player of the week Wednesday while teammate Sandro DeAngelis took the nod for top special teams player.
Burris completed 25 of 35 passes for 310 yards and two touchdowns last Saturday as the Stamps defeated Montreal 27-24. Burris also ran six times for 53 yards.
DeAngelis hit a pair of clutch field goals late in the game to help send the Alouettes to their first loss of the season. With less than two minutes remaining, he split the uprights from 52 yards out before winning the game with a 53-yarder with no time left.
DeAngelis was perfect on all four field goal attempts and was a unanimous selection. Toronto Argonauts wide receiver Arland Bruce III was considered for the offensive award.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers linebacker Barrin Simpson was named defensive player of the week. He had 11 tackles, one sack and one interception in a 32-5 loss to the B.C. Lions.
Lions defensive end Brent Johnson was named lineman of the week after recording one sack, two interceptions and a fumble recovery.
Teammate Nautyn McKay-Loescher was also considered for the lineman award. Toronto Argonauts defensive back Khalil Carter was an honourable mention for the defensive award.

Argos release veteran Canadian Football League lineman

The Toronto Argonauts released veteran offensive lineman Mike Mihelic on Tuesday.
The six-foot-five, 310-pound guard was in his 10th CFL season and second stint with the Argos. But a finger injury limited the 33-year-old Toronto native to just four games with the club this year.
Mihelic also signed with Toronto as a free agent June 19, 2001 but was released a month later. He signed with Hamilton on Sept. 7.
Toronto acquired Mihelic and future considerations from Hamilton for quarterback Marcus Brady and linebacker Tawambi Settles prior to the 2004 season. The Argos went on to win the Grey Cup that year.
Mihelic began his CFL career with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 1997 before being released prior to the 2000 season. He signed with Hamilton shortly after but was released Nov. 12.
