The 2016 CFL season: Official Fearless Predictions™

Almost a year ago to the day, I nervously sent in my picks ahead of the 2015 season and felt pretty good about what I predicted. I didn’t predict Montreal missing the playoffs for the first time since returning to the city, I didn’t predict Saskatchewan’s implosion or Ottawa’s *ex*plosion along with the now infamous “2nd and 25”. I was actually p

We are six days away from having *new* CFL games to watch on TSN instead of repeats every single night. I’m actually watching the 2015 East Final right now as I roundup this week’s news in the CFL. Can I just fast forward to this part? What a moment. • CFL teams were to trim rosters to 65 players on Tuesday and most of the cuts weren’t surpris

All reports out of Saskatchewan Roughriders training camp leading up to Saturday’s mock game were positive. Every new player was fitting in nicely, practice was fast and intense, and franchise quarterback Darian Durant looked like he was in the best shape of his life. Then the mock game happened. And Chris Jones was *not* happy. Of course, the mo

Time for just a bit more math before I make my official predictions for the 2016 CFL season.  This time, let's take a look at Pythagorean Expectation over the past 10 years, and how it can be used to aid in predictions for this season. Now, I've based a lot of my work at CFLpass on the fact that teams that underachieve their Pythagorean Expectati

I’m still stuck on how interesting the CFL standings have been over the years, but for once, I came up with an idea that didn’t involve hours of research and a lot of math. For this week’s deep dive into CFL history, let’s look at the crossover – or more specifically, the lack thereof – at points in history. I’m looking for times when the crossove

Football season is *finally* upon us. It has been a painful six months of arguing about new logos, jerseys, and compensation. With rookie camp already underway and main camp starting this Sunday, now we can focus on what’s happening on the field. It’s about time. •  Looks! Juwan Simpson is back in Calgary... As a guest coach. I still think Simpso

The eye of the storm...that’s exactly the point of the offseason we were stuck in this week. Last week had the excitement of the draft and the amazing jersey reveal. This week we were left with some goofy radio host in Toronto that made a feeble attempt at running down the Canadian Football League. And as always, CFL fans took the bait. Honestl

I have already established that it’s not easy to go from one extreme to the other in the CFL standings, first examining teams going from worst to first and then first to worst, but that just made me wonder how likely each finish was based off of where teams had placed the year before. Before I go too far into this, note this isn’t an exact science

This week officially has me excited for CFL Football to return: Tuesday’s draft will bring 70 more players to the league and Thursday’s jersey unveil has me ready to open my wallet. I just can’t wait to see the new uniforms on the field! •  Josiah St. John out of Oklahoma was drafted number one overall by the Saskatchewan Roughriders to kick off T
