What Folks Learned about CFL First Half of the Season

There will be 11 games in Week 11 of the 2022 CFL season.

Because this is the first complete season since 2019, there have been more exciting games, so the stretch run should be enjoyable.

Six additional games have been decided in the last three minutes since this time last year, bringing the total to 26.

In the first half, experts claimed to have examined:

Nathan Rourke

Best story

Mr. Rourke, of course.

Because the Canadian quarterback could play in the NFL next season, B.C. Lions supporters should make the most of him this season.

Nobody knows what opportunities he will find south of the border.

Rourke is the overwhelming favorite to be named the league’s most valuable player, which is Canada’s highest individual sports distinction.

The Vancouver Lions have been underappreciated in recent years, but they are 7-1 right now and drawing a lot of attention.

This Friday, Rourke will attempt to become the first quarterback since Doug Flutie in 1993 to throw for 400 yards in three consecutive games.

The 24-year-old is on pace to shatter a number of marks, including those for passing, rushing, and completions.

Championship pedigree

Winnipeg hopes to become the first club to win three consecutive championships since Edmonton did it from 1978 to 1982.

The Bombers dropped their first game of the season last week to the Montreal Alouettes due to a missed field goal.

Don’t underestimate a 9-1 squad preparing to go on its first break of the season.

This season, both quarterback Zach Collaros and head coach Mike O’Shea have been outstanding. Dalton Schoen, a receiver for the Bombers, is the team’s most promising new player.

Concerning team

We’ll root for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a year with a wide disparity between affluent and poor.

Despite a 3-6 record and losses in the fourth quarter, the East Division champions have won back-to-back crowns. Dane Evans replaced Jeremiah Masoli, who was sacked and relocated to Ottawa, but he fell short of expectations and is now on the disabled list.

After beating the Toronto Argonauts last week, the Ticats are still in contention for the division crown (4-4).

Labor Day festivities in Hamilton should be enjoyable.

The injuries

This season, there has been a significant reduction in production at running back.
William Stanback sprained his ankle in the first game of the season.
Andrew Harris’ season is over after a rocky start.

Players that are not currently playing include Ka’Deem Carey of the Calgary Stampeders, James Butler of the British Columbia Lions, and William Powell of the Ottawa Redblacks.

Other concerns

A handful of teams will struggle to find a quarterback in 2023.

Except for Collaros and possibly Bo Levi Mitchell, who has done well for Calgary this season, neither team has enough talent to be confident right now. We believe Rourke will investigate the NFL on his own.

Keep an eye on Evans, McLeod Bethel-Thompson, Masoli, and Cody Fajardo in the second half.

Chad Kelly, who is on the Argonauts’ bench, has the potential to excel.
