HIT 'EM AGAIN, YE MEN OF CALGARY
What’s with starting the American QB over O Conner. No CFL experience at all. Once again Canadian QB getting the shaft
O'Connor's QB style is different than Maier's style. I guess given there is no tape what-so-ever on Maier playing in the CFL, his confidence and QB style, that Dickenson figured to start him to get a look see. Nothing preventing Dickenson from replacing Maier if he fails to produce. Either have very limited experience so why not go with the unexpected.
The mighty Calgary Stampeders have never gone 0-3 in their illustrious 75 year history. Therefore I am confident they can get their first victory in this strange 2021 season !
Calgary will win 2 games this season. This isn't their week. Als by 26.
Week #9 & week #10
Go Als Go!
The mighty Stampeders? That made me giggle, Ace, you're thinking of days gone by! They've got a lot to do to be called mighty this year, but I don't think Green&Whites blowout prediction is true either. Als by 7.
Where do you get your facts? The "mighty" Stampeders of 1985 lost 5 straight on their way to a 3 win season. The 1976 & 1977 "mighties" did win 1 of their 1st 3 games but that was the only win in their 1st 11 games of 1976 & 9 games of 1977. Mighty indeed. Go Stamps.
Hard to say just how many Games the Stamps win this season. No one has seen the QBs perform but Dickenson. But a loss tonight by 26 is an insane wishful thinking . Montreal looked good against Edmonton in their first game this season. However the Stamps do have a good defence. The Offence was hindered by an injuried QB the last 2 games. Plus Mitchell missed a lot of practise time that is needed to jell with his receivers. The Calgary starting QBs this game may surprise everyone !
I believe that Garcia's 1998 Stamps started out 0-3 before winning the west and the Grey Cup if I am not mistaken. Wasn't Dunigan's 04 Stamps also 0-4 start?
Prediction for tonight:
Als 27 - Stamps 17
That's some impressive homework there. And correct from my own double -check!
When your starting QB is on the six game injured and you have already lost 2 games with the starter at the helm, can't see them winning until he returns.
That would mean 0 - 8 with 6 games remaining.
Do they play Hamilton in that stretch?
Sorry, couldn't resist. :s
I would still take the Ticats with 2 starting QBs to the Stamps with a backup QB with no CFL experience
Winning three against 1 team in a span of 4 weeks is near impossible. Calgary will take 1 against the Riders and 1 against Ottawa
Tell me this, how many examples of greatness do the Stampders have to give y'all before you have a little faith?
Fine fine fine. I bow to you. Please tell me exalted highness, which of your boots shall I kiss first, the left or the right?
