Canadian Football League Week # 11 Picks

CFL Week # 11 Picks

Stamps Vs. Eskimos

Eskimos are hurting but the Stamps are not the same team on the road.

Ti-Cats Vs. Argos

Mr. Printers is not enough against the Argos. Toronto just has Hamilton's number.

Lions Vs. Als
Normally I would take the Als at home in a home and home series. No AC
simply means the Als have no chance.

Lions by 4

Riders Vs. Bombers
Great game last week. Joseph pulled it off in the dying moments. The Bombers
have two huge changes to the defence this week. Ike Charlton returns at Lb
and Juran Bolden makes his third trip to Winnipeg. Bolden can be the best
Db in the league. But he has not played in awhile. Still like the home team
as the Bombers sell out for the fifth straight game.

Printers back in Canadian Football League

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have signed quarterback Casey Printers, the Canadian Press reported Thursday.

Hamilton and Printers came to terms on a three-year contract worth $500,000 per season, a deal which would make the quarterback the highest-paid player in the CFL, according to Canadian Press.
Ticats officials would neither confirm nor deny the deal, although the club is expected to make a formal announcement at a new conference at 4 p.m. ET.
Printers, 26, was released by the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs last week, paving the way for his return to the CFL.
Printers played three seasons for the B.C. Lions and was named the CFL's top player in 2004 after throwing for 5,088 yards and 36 touchdowns. He also rushed for 469 yards and nine touchdowns that season.
Despite his success, he left for the NFL following the 2005 season, a move fuelled by the Lions' refusal to name him the starter over veteran Dave Dickenson.
Even in Printers's MVP season, head coach Wally Buono started Dickenson during B.C.'s 27-19 Grey Cup loss to the Toronto Argonauts in Ottawa.
Printers failed to impress the Kansas City brass in 2006, spending most of season on the team's practice roster.
The signing of Printers by Hamilton, who reportedly outbid the Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes for the quarterback's services, is a big addition for a Ticats team that sports an anaemic 1-8 record and has scored a league-low 153 points this season.
