Couple of side notes: The Stamps had lost 7 in a row in Toronto until thumping them there 44-16 in 2008 and then beating them in a tighter one 23-20 there last season.
The last time Calgary started the season 2-0 was in 2000 when they opened the season 7-0.
Calgary is on a 6 game winning streak against the Argos going back to 2007 with only one of those games being decided by less than a touchdown, the 23-20 win in Toronto last season. The average score in those 6 games has been 35-12.
Ofcourse this is only one game and all that means nothing except for the fact the lopsided time of possession stats and rushing stats do outline the severe contrast in style between these two teams with the Stamps being more of a capable power football team on both sides of the ball and the Argos being a weaker team along both sides of the line and relying more on the scrambling abilities of their QB's and yards after the catch by their receivers. We will find out just how fast Lemon can run tonight especially with an injury to the Argo O-line which will only add to their lack of rush threat and lack of protection.
RB Joffrey Reynolds saves his best football for Argo games boasting a 90.8 yard per game average against them in 13 games, 6 times eclipsing the 100 yard mark and his career single game high of 189 yards came against them in 2004.
SB P.K Sam had a great Stamps debut with 7 receptions for 62 yards last week and faces his old team for the first time tonight in Toronto.
