Rider team has been in every game against their opponents, chances are Riders D get rewarding success to give Stampeder team problems. A them team to get beat by the us team.

Stamps have not looked great this season TBH, or at least inconsistent. They will be out for blood though.

Will be interesting to see how their health is....especially on the lines. I believe Hughes will be back...and that is massive for the Stamps....that has been a nightmare for them...but Davis, Law and Turner are still out, then Mayo as well. Riders need to take advantage of that and assuming Hushes is back that is going to be an awesome battle to watch with Dennis.

The Stamps were also concerned about their OL coming into the season...primarily on the NI front. With 3 or 4 out I think this is the only time I recall Huf not having someone on the PR....I will give them credit though, the patched OL has played better every week....but Bo is looking a lot less Bo with the OL he has now.

Will also be interesting to see if Messam is in the game. I assume it will be a fine....but he did get ejected, so you never know.

Their secondary will look a lot better as their starting Corners now have one game back under their belts.

Calgary sitting with odds at -10.5 \ I could change my pick to Calgary in VCCC but I am not going to. Chris Jones will work with the D at this point to design given coverage to defeat Calgary. I'm likely in very minority territory picking Saskatchewan, but still :thup:

Yes I also believe the Riders will win this one.
Riders beating Calgary will with certainty confirm for most, they are far far better then their record would suggest! :cowboy:

I missed the Hamilton game on vacation, but it sounded like a much better showing, especially by our defence. While I'm still skeptical of this team being playoff calibre as a whole, I think a win in Calgary would go a long way to convince me. Might have to be an ugly road win, but as long as we bring pressure (with at least 4 or 5 rushers) and establish a run game, we've got a chance.

Montreal opened up a couple of doors for Jones to explore on film. One player comes to mind is Carter, thus one can just feel that Carter is due for a break out game.

"I really believe that team (#Riders) was pretty good except for QB play last year."
"Kevin Glenn is playing well." - Dave Dickenson

I will add the total lack of an OL coach who had a clue was an issue.

Of the laundry list of problems we had last year, Quarterbacking was just about at the bottom. Still is this year, as KG is playing pretty well so far too. If history has taught us anything, that won't continue all season, but hey, maybe he bucks his own trend.

It will take all 3 phases playing well, no stupid penalties, no turnovers and no wide open Stinks receivers to win.

The Stinks are beatable.

For sure they are, seeing how they did against Montreal, I think we have a decent chance at home against them as long as we play D as we did in the Hamilton game (rushing 4 or 5) and a limited turnover game from our O.

That said, Calgary has a way of rebounding from bad games, and may take out some frustration on us... :?

I'm ready for either outcome.

I like our offensive performance so far this season. But this is a true test. Don't forget, the Stamps lost the Cup in OT and those Stamps who remain should be royally pissed. I fully expected this team to go 18-0 after the way they lost the GC but that has been decided already and gaps have been exposed. They look 'beatable'. Riders need a full effort on all three sides of the ball. But hey, if Proulx is reffing, we're done at the coin toss.

Character is clearly setting in with this years team, perhaps that's what has been missing since the 2013 Cup win, or even before then. Yes I agree there are plays where crazy things happen, but the Rider team chirps each other up/push to make interesting better plays. Chris Jones brings this, players are happy/cheerful/believe in each other.

Note - Hope all is well with JimmytheGreek.

CFL=Challenge Football League

This league is a joke. Dickenson can't get a first down so he has to challenge his way down the field. He counter challenges after Jones wins an obvious no-catch challenge (don't get me started on the crap officiating where they can't see the blatantly obvious, standing 10 yards away looking directly at it).
