    Game Day and I'm confident we will advance to the GC today!! Our defence needs to dig in early, and BLM needs to find his receivers and score early. Getting Bombers in a hole will force them to the air game and effectively shut down the run, which was deadly against Sask. I expect BLM and the offense to be focused like they were 2 weeks ago, as well the defence seemed to be back to form. Weather looks like a non factor today, although a little windy maybe?

    This year feels different than the last two.....the last two trips to the GC might have been a little too easy. A little diversity might just be what the Dr ordered!

    GO STAMPS!!!

    I think this game is tight, but as always, I think the Stamps will win. I think the offense needs to recognize what the Bombers are giving them early, and take advantage of it. Bo needs to be willing to run, if and when the chance presents itself, and the defense needs to slam Harris. Over and over and over.

    Or just win both sides of the line of scrimmage all game.

    Some adversity might just suit them.

    Particularly if they face it on the road to the Grey Cup, and not while playing in it.

    We all know as Stamps fans how they've fared when adversity managed to finally track them down for the first in the big game...;)

    Maybe if they face it earlier en route to that game, and overcome it, they'll manage matters better the next time they confront it.

    Stamps should win this.

    But it wouldn't be the first time they stumbled when by all rights the prize should've been theirs for the taking...;)

    Go Stamps Go!

    Stamps defence is getting it done! Stay strong boys, Harris has been shut down and 35 yards passing won’t win this game.

    Throw the dagger Mitchell, let’s put this away!

    Good thing the winds are diminishing.

    Since Calgary has squandered half of the third quarter with what's left of it at their backs, with the Jackson fumble and ineffective play calling since the second half commenced.

    A great victory, but their work is cut out for them.
    Against Ottawa. I hope it’s not a replay of 2016.
    The stampeders acted like they were in a fog all game
    long. Both offense and defense had trouble.

    The stamps are the only team this year undefeated against Eastern opponents, including two wins against Ottawa.

    DD will have them focused and ready, and if the defence plays like they did today....we finally hoist the cup

    Same as all year. I don't know if I am not giving the Stamps enough credit, or the opposition too much credit. We had a definite rough stretch at seasons end while Bo and his new receiving core worked out some kinks, but other than that we have won, week in and week out, but without looking overwhelming or really dominant to me. Yet at the end of the day, it is all about scoreboard. And we covered that every week.

    And I also have no idea anymore what to expect from one week to the next. Is Ottawa a good team? Ya, I think so, but do I think they are as good as the Hamilton pounding suggests they are? Before today I would have argued strenuously that it was not possible the Ottawa Hamilton game would have turned out the way it did. Did I think Hamilton was going to pound BC last week? Nope. Did I think Saskatchewan would keep it close with Bridge as starting QB? Nope.

    SO, based on everything, Grey Cup, Stamps by 6.

    Me either. It would seem like perfect redemption to win in your Albertan rival's stadium forever but the universe can be a cruel mistress as we have seen the past two years.

    When I heard Alessia Cara was chosen for the halftime show after she sang the pre-show in 2016 I had a feeling there would be that rematch. Scary...
