Canadian Football League Week # 10 Picks


Als vs Lions

Usually not a great place for the Als. The Lions are a different club this year and
the Als are the class of the league.

Bombers Vs Riders

You can bet Michael Bishop has a ton to prove this week in Regina and he
will need to if the Bombers have any hope. While Fred Reid and Co. did
a number on the Lions last game, you can be assured the Riders won't
let the Bombers run all over them.

Argos Vs Ti-Cats

A must win for the Argos this week, if they have any hope of making the playoffs.
The good news is it is the Ti-Cats. While the Cats are much improved, the Argos
seem to have their number. However that should come to an end this week.

Eskimos Vs Stamps

Simply put, take the Stamps at home.

Pacman Headed For Canadian Football League

Adam "Pacman" Jones appears to be headed north of the border to play in the CFL.

Jones' lawyer says he has been in negotiations with a CFL team. Attorney Worrick Robinson told The Associated Press on Tuesday a deal could be completed by the end of the week.

Robinson wouldn't identify the team, but The Canadian Press and reported that Jones would play for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Jones turns 26 at the end of this month. He spent last season with the Dallas Cowboys after missing the previous year because of multiple violations of the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Robinson says there were discussions with "a number of NFL teams" but nothing worked out.

Former Canadian Football League Great Passes Away

Former Montreal Alouettes quarterback Sam Etcheverry died Saturday following a lengthy battle with cancer.

He was 79. Etcheverry, who spent the majority of his career with the Alouettes, was one of the most dominant quarterbacks in the CFL during the 1950s. Nicknamed "The Rifle," he led Montreal to three straight Grey Cup appearances and was named the league's top quarterback in 1954. Two years later, he became the first quarterback in league history to pass for more than 4,000 yards in a season.

The Alouettes announced Etcheverry's death in a press release.
