As go CFL quarterbacks, so go their teams. And the Grueling Truth’s CFL QB Power Rankings for week 10 reflect this principle 100%, with those at the helm of the three teams making up the class of the CFL also the top three on this list. Lower on the table, the week 9 rankings have been shuffled…
1) Mike Reilly, Edmonton Eskimos
Reilly played well in the Eskimos’ first loss of the year, throwing for 356 yards and 2 TDs. Reilly has been the most consistent of CFL quarterbacks in 2017 so far and has helped the Eskimos overcome multiple injuries.
2) Matt Nichols, Winnipeg Blue Bombers
Nichols has been on a hot streak for the last four months and is showing no signs of cooling off. In the Bombers’ huge win over undefeated Edmonton, Nichols threw for almost 400 yards and made no major mistakes.
3) Bo Levi Mitchell, Calgary Stampeders
Mitchell is coming off one of the worst games of his career, but since it’s Mitchell and the Stampeders naturally they still won.
4) Trevor Harris, Ottawa Redblacks
Harris torched the hapless Ti-Cats for close to 400 yards. The Redblacks have only won two games so far this year, but Harris has played well. Don’t be surprised if the Redblacks make a late-season run.
5) Ricky Ray, Toronto Argonauts
Ray came back from a week’s absence to get the Argos a huge win over the Montreal Alouettes. With Ray, the Argos are a playoff contender. Without him, they’re dead in the water.
6) Kevin Glenn, Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Riders are coming off a bye week. If Glenn plays like he did in the Riders blowout win over the Lions, the Riders may be able to get themselves into the playoff race.
7) Darian Durant, Montreal Alouettes
The entire Alouettes team laid an egg in Toronto, including Durant. Montreal needs more consistent play on offense than what Durant is bringing.
8) Jonathon Jennings/Travis Lulay, BC Lions
Lulay did not play this week and Jennings probably wishes he hadn’t, as he threw two interceptions against Calgary. These two QBs combined have thrown 12 TD passes and 14 interceptions in 2017.
9) Zach Collaros, Hamilton Tiger-Cats
Collaros and the Ti-Cats may make a run at a perfect season. I mean they could go 0-18 – they are that bad. [Counterpoint: A winless season hasn’t happened since the 1930s, before the modern CFL was organized. A better measuring stick is probably the 1994 Shreveport Pirates, who went 3-15. That’s doable. –Ed.]
