As banged up as the Cats are, the Stamps have their own out.
Messem, Hughes, Peredes, Federkil ( sorry if I misspelled a Stamp name. )
A Stamp loss will not hurt them.
A Cat win is crucial. First place for them will come down to that back to back tilt with the RB's.
However, a Cat win will go along way for their confidence . They need to know they can dance with the big boys from the West.
Here is the big question.
What frame of mind and emotion will the Stamps be in. ?
Here in Calgary, they are saying the right things.
It is one thing to say we are focused, but what goes on in the heart and the mind is another thing.
I predict an end to the Stamps win streak today. Injuries combined with an uncharacteristic sub-par performance from Mitchell,and for Mitchell that doesn't mean picks and low completion percentage just settling for field goals in many situations, the Cats will win a bit of a shootout 35-30.
Well, so much for my prediction. The Stamps crushed the Ticats today. Collaros was injured of course but I get the sense that the Stamps were in complete control even when he left the game with an injury.
Clean hit as he was throwing the ball. Listed as an "upper body injury". Hope he's back next game. As long as he doesn't end up on our every-expending six-game injury list. I don't think I've ever seen a team with so many players on that list. And most of those are starters. Perhaps it's time to fire our training staff.
Funny how no one is talking about Collaros, the best QB in the league, these days, are they? I thought a half-season in 2015 and a hot start this year were enough to GUARANTEE him a permanent spot at the top of the pack...
