    Expect Cooper/ Robinson to get some touches out of the slot too. We're shockingly thin at WR & SB.

    I have a feeling that if we lose this game, this season is going down the toilet very fast.

    That Stampeder roster leaves a lot to be desired.

    Cooper and Roy will likely be the healthy scratches, barring any decision that Gable isn't good to go, then it would be Gable and Roy. Can't imagine a scenario where we dress 2 full time import RBs with the ratio being what it is. I know I've seen Cooper taking snaps at returner during practice, but I don't think he showed enough to unseat Robinson just yet (though with the return yards we've gotten this year, as long as he can hold onto the ball, do we really lose much?)

    Makes sense. I do hope the backup RB (whoever it might be) gets involved in the offense though.

    Agreed. I think Cooper is perhaps a quicker option at RB....

    Good point about using the RB's other than blockers. Harris made the Rider D look very ordinary with over 150 yds last game. Keep plugging away and show some imagination rather than us running between the G's all the time. Calgary's D line is quick but not much for size. Big size advantage to our O line. In stopping the run game Singleton really helps the Calgary line though.

    Excited to see what Boateng can do with a few less reps, there were several times he was sucking wind, I expect him to have a big game.

    Would rather keep Cooper on than Robinson IMO

    I agree. I think it comes down to who is best prepared to do kick returns. Cooper has very limited experience on punt returns if I recall.
    Someone had mentioned Giguere as a returner option a couple weeks ago. That would give us flexibility. Wonder if they (coaches) have considered that?

    Its not like Robinson has been lighting up the return game whatsoever. Cooper can catch the ball and fall forward pretty much as good as Robinson does

    The fact that the Stamps came out of that game VERY dinged up makes the loss sting even more. Esks wasted a golden opportunity to put a ton of pressure on the Stamps.

    I think Cooper is just there to fill out the 46, he will be one of the scratches.

    They knew Bo wasn't mobile and didn't blitz the bejesus out of him...that falls on Bene.

    Absolutely....I do not understand what the thinking was once Bo Levi returned. He is going to have a brace this weekend and be immobile. I hope we blitz the **** out of him and play a bit more man coverage. I think we have the talent to hold those receivers in check considering they are missing Rogers and Jorden.

    My bold prediction is the Esks win this one in a route and finish out the season on a winning streak similar to 2015. Reilly hasn't looked himself the last few weeks but tomorrow's the night that all changes.

    I'd be shocked to hell if Bene actually had a game plan like that.... sigh

    I hope Bo Levi aggravates his injury and pooches his season. This really is a nothing game for Calgary and if Dickenson was smart he’d sit him to rest that injury.

    If they lose him their season is over.

    Agreed. No reason the Stamps should play Bo if he is questionable.

    But don’t you know, the guy is a warrior! There was no way they they were keeping him out of the game!

    The way he came back in, only completed a couple passes, and took a sack that was reversed on a dumb penalty by Edwards that put them in field goal position makes him a legend!

    Today’s forecast is now a lot better—only a 30% chance of showers this morning & then a mix of sun & cloud this afternoon.
    Winds at 30 to 50 kph....
    I’m a lot more optimistic about this one than I was last week. Our D was much better in Calgary than I thought it would be & if Reilly & the O can get their collective butts in gear we will win.
    The Stumps have 4 injury changes from last week so jump on them early & get the win!

    Really guys? You’re gonna wish injury/ further injury on opposing teams’ players because that’s how you want your own team to win?

    Not only is that just generally miserable and horrible, but I’d rather that whichever team I support win without asterisks or disclaimers. I want my team to beat the best that the opposition can put forward whether it’s regular season, playoffs, or Grey Cup.

    I'm cautiously optimistic we win however we seem to have an uncanny ability to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory against Calgary. I hope you're right!

    Feel bad for anyone who doesn’t have multiple TSN channels because they are gonna miss the entire first quarter of the Esks/Stamps game.
