With the season half finished I have to say that the Calgary Stampeders are looking more and more like the team that will put the late season charge on the Esks for second in the west. Higgins and co have really turned it up a notch in the last 4 weeks.
The D is back to where they were last season, creating havoc and turnovers. Scott Coe is a monster at linebacker. The offense is starting to click now with Burris getting comfortable with Lewis and Copeland. I'm guessing a lot of Rider fans would be happier with him instead of Nealon right about now (even though many of them devoted a lot of effort towards convincing us that they hated him).
While the Lions may be the team to beat in the west, the Stampeders are definitely the team to watch!
