    Regular Season Week 5
    Calgary (2-2, 2-0 at home) vs BC (2-2, 0-1 on the road)
    Date: Saturday July 28th
    Time: 7:00pm local / 7:00 Calgary Time
    TV/Radio: TSN / Calgary Radio / BC Radio / ESPN3 (USA)

    Who expected these two teams to be 2-2 after 4 weeks? But here they are and the battle is on. Kevin Glenn vs Travis Lulay wasn't the expected starting QBs for this game either at the beginning of the pre-season.

    It becomes a battle of the 2 non-import Running Backs as Andrew Harris is having a breakout season. Jon Cornish comes in averaging 50 yards per game as he's dead on 200 yards rushing so far this year. The difference being that BC leads the League in rushing yards per game while Calgary sits 5th.

    Calgary brings in the West's best passing game stats wise and goes up against the stingy BC pass defense which sits best in the West and 2nd in the League. BC gives up over 60 yards less per game through the air than Calgary. That said Calgary has 5 interceptions to BC's only 2.

    Another interesting stat is that BC hasn't lost a fumble yet this season while Calgary has lost a League high 5 already.

    Matt Devlin's second game as a play by play announcer. He's a veteran now!

    A whopping 3-2 Lions lead after 1 quarter of play.

    Sick and tired of the penalties. A good run by Cornish is called back on a holding; then an offside. This is brutal. Huff has to do something.

    Cornish has to be careful getting mad at the holding call. Football is a team sport. Not about individual stats.

    Calgary is the most undisciplined team in the CFL

    Glenn has always had trouble running a CFL offense with decent efficiency....

    2 classic mis-matches tonite....

    1. Lulay over Glenn (Glenn is a short classic journeyman, Lulay is a shifty slippery QB with a well above average accurate arm)

    2. Huffer over Michael Landsbergh, Jr. (Benevides in that gaudy $1200 club jacket). But the mis-match of Huff over VDs is slight, not even close to the massive mis-match of Lulay over Glenn. Hulay for Lulay!!!

    Is it just me, or has DD not called a play-action in a long time.

    It seems Glenn either just draws to Cornish, or he drops back to pass. One or the other.

    I can't remember the last time there was any kind of play-action or misdirection.
