THE STAMPEDERS WILL WIN IF ...
Quarterback Henry Burris continues to manage the game and not make mistakes, and the Stamps can corral dynamic returner Dominique Dorsey.
The only thing that has seemed to slow Burris down this season is injury. He has limited the crippling errors and has a solid 103.5 passer rating.
The Stamps will need to kick away from Dorsey, which makes Burke Dales important as the punter.
Dales has some great hang-time, but can struggle with his placing at times.
The Stamps cover teams are solid, but Dorsey can make the best of players look silly with his slick moves and deceptive speed.
THE ARGOS WILL WIN IF ...
Cody Pickett of 2008 suddenly becomes Kerry Joseph of 2007 and the defence finds a fountain of youth.
In taking over for the reign-ing CFL most outstanding player, Pickett is in a tough situation.
When Joseph went from Saskatchewan to Toronto this off-season, expectations were he would continue his scrambling style.
But the Argos made him a pocket passer and that hasn't worked. Pickett is more natural in the pocket.
On the other side of the ball, the Argos are suddenly old and slow on defence, plus they are playing a bunch of new faces in hopes of finding some success.
