    Bad set of circumstances from a fans point of view. Good choice on Tate's part. Hopefully with surgery and rehab he will be ready for next season.
    :( Too bad I really thought this was going to be good season for him.

    Eventhough there is "no time to panic" with the Stamps, come Thursday against the Riders Calgary should be desperate to even their record. So far injuries, a tight schedule, and overall ability to play a solid 60 minutes without glaring penalties and timely turnovers have cost this team a better record.

    Coming into the game the Riders might be the only team with a win on the road. Therefore it is imperative for the Stamps to provide a good start and a strong finish. One of the team goals was to be better at home this season, come Thursday night they have another opportunity to accomplish that goal against a strong opponent.

    How is it that the Riders are suddenly a good team after last year's mess? Taman didn't exactly make any noteworthy strong moves. I can't help but wonder if they're actually as good as their record. Durant has done very little other than in game one. The defense has played quite well despite an unimpressive personnel group (at least on paper).

    Were we all wrong about the roster Taman has put together? Maybe we were. It wouldn't be the first time an unheralded group of football players emerged as a great team. It happens all the time.

    Give credit to Durant, he's avoided turning the ball over quite well. Thus far. History has to make you wonder how long that will last.

    Still, the Riders are a dangerous team coming into McMahon. They're playing with confidence and will have plenty of fan support behind them despite being on the road. They're facing an opponent coming off some heartbreaking losses both on the scoreboard and on the roster.

    I hate to say it, but the Stamps are going to be in tough. Hopefully this time they'll come through in the clutch and avoid another disheartening near miss.
