    Preseason Week 1
    Edmonton @ Calgary
    Date: Friday June 15th
    Time: 7:00 local
    TV/Radio: TSN2/QR77/630Ched

    Things to watch: Being the first pre-season game it will be interesting to see how many rookies and back ups from last year make it into the starting line up. Expect to see Drew Tate take the first half with an assortment of partners in the backfield.

    Also expect to see a wide assortment of the players still in camp get on the field. Evaluations made at game speed. Rosters need to be reduced by the 17th so players in battles will get a shot at earning a spot.

    Player to watch: Look forward to seeing 2012 Draft Picks Ameet Paul (first round) and Keenan MacDougall (third round) in their first experience of professional football and the difference between practice and games.

    Keys to the Game: Being pre-season the result doesn't matter as much as the individual aspects of the game, however in the short CFL pre-season schedule, teams like to win for their home fans so while the playbook will be vanilla the coaches will tighten up the ship if there's a chance to win it.

    Opposition - Thing to watch: Edmonton enters the year with the most questions at QB. Look for the Calgary defense to put some serious pressure on the QB to try and generate mistakes.

    They are also working with a new center and a new long snapper which could be a focus of the Calgary defense to test them out.

    RE: Game Day Rundown - Pre-Season Week A

    The things I am interested in is watching the Stampa qb situation as well as the Eskimos. Should be interesting.

    RE: Game Day Rundown - Pre-Season Week A

    Absolutely. Both teams have major questions to answer there. (Bigger for one team than the other mind you ;)) Is Tate the answer in Calgary? Who will win the third string position for the Stamps, Bo Levi Mitchel or Brad Sinopoli? Can Kerry Joseph still play? Can Steven Jyles play? Is there anyone in Edmonton who can step up and play QB? :p

    Also sounds like Yamon Figurs won't play on Friday with a knee injury. Team is saving him for a debut opening week if progress is steady.

    Welcome, Bumpnrun, you're sure right about the length of this off-season!

    Do we know you from any other boards?

    You've got a great nickname for posting on a football site, btw! ;)

    Ah. So what's Dwight Anderson's? "Everybody_Hates_Dwight_And_I_Don't_Just_Mean_Opponents_Because_He_Never_Shuts_Up_But_Teammates_And_Fans_Too_Because_He_Constantly_Takes_Bad_Penalties_That_Hurt_His_Team"?

    So it looks like a first team offense to start the game Friday and a mix of rookie/depth player defense to get things rolling.
