If you missed the game you can get a recap from my pal Avry here.
Fred Stamps racked up 213 yards in receiving during the Esks 24-20 loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Thats more yards in one game then every other receiver in the league (except 6) has caught for in 3 games! 3 games worth of receiving in one! Thats award worthy. But one this weeks Finest CFL Players did not include him. The Eskimos did get 2 players on the list that went like this:
Eskimos-LB Maurice Lloyd (Defense)
Eskimos-K Noel Prefontaine (Special Teams)
Tiger-Cats- QB Kevin Glenn (Offence)
Tiger-Cats- WR Dave Stala (Canadian)
The picks for Glenn were unanimous. He threw for 336 yards and 3 touchdowns to get the Ti-cats there first win of the season.
Great game, but as I mentioned earlier, thats 3 games worth of reviving in one!!! Sure the Eskimos got 2 other guys in but not the one who deserved it the most. True, he fumbled the ball at a critical time in the game but it wouldn’t have been close without Stamps.
How can you ignore his performance like that? I don’t get it.
Congrats to Prefontaine and Lloyd as well as Glenn and Stala. Maybe next week Fred, maybe next week.
