    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 12, 2015

    News
    Calgary Stampeders will be without one of their defensive mainstays

    If you’ve watched a Calgary Stampeders practice or pre-game warm-up, it quickly becomes clear Josh Bell and Fred Bennett love to dance.
    Bell, the Stamps standout safety, might want to practise strutting to Billy Idol’sDancing With Myself for the rest of the season.
    Because Bennett won’t be busting a move anytime soon.
    The Stamps cornerback broke his arm Saturday night and will be lost for the rest of the season.

    Calgary Stampeders still smarting from loss that has Edmonton Eskimos joining them in CFL West penthouse
    The Calgary Stampeders aren't used to looking up at anyone.
    They've been in first place for so long, you'd think they might have purchased it.
    But top spot in the CFL's West Division is anything but signed, sealed and delivered.
    After spending 10 weeks at the top of the totem pole, the Stamps are no longer in first place.
    Well, technically they're tied with the Edmonton Eskimos after Saturday's 15-11 loss to the Green & Gold at McMahon Stadium.

    Edmonton Eskimos 15, Calgary Stampeders 11: Game Balls & Bricks
    It was not exactly must-see TV.
    Regardless of whether you were wearing red and white or green and gold, Saturday's 15-11 snoozefest, in which the Edmonton Eskimos beat the Calgary Stampeders, was far from exhilarating.
    The Esks and their fans could care less about the style points, of course.
    They'll happily take the 'W' and a share of top spot in the CFL West Division standings.
    The Stamps and their supporters want more.

    I agree with Scott Fisher, there were some bright spots, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
    If it wasn't for a strong performance from the D, the score could have been much worse.
    What has me concerned is both the offense and special teams. Both phases have to be much better in the next few games if the Stamps have a chance at all for first in the West.
    Not all is doom and gloom, but the injuries are starting to take their toll and maybe the team is running out of steam.

    Our receivers are under achieving with the exception of McDaniel! West is a total waste of a spot out there. Fuller can not get open whats with that and Rogers has been held back no fault to him.
