CALGARY -- Henry Burris or Dave Dickenson?

When the Esks and Stamps line up for Friday night's rematch at Commonwealth, it's uncertain which quarterback will be starting for Calgary.

Burris is day-to-day with a toe injury.

Dickenson moved Calgary to its only offensive touchdown, on the opening drive of the second half, giving the Stamps their only lead of the game.

In any event, the Stampeders are going to have to figure out how to get their offence going.

Chances are, the veteran Dickenson will be getting most of the reps this week.

"There was stuff available," said Dickenson.

"We were just a little off. It doesn't take much for an offence to be off ... maybe one guy. I was a little high. Henry missed a couple of throws. We had snaps on the wrong count, put the ball on the ground too much.

"They also, in the second half, were clickin'. A couple of turnovers turned into a pretty good deficit."

Burris was unable to punch the ball into the end zone and came out with a couple of field goals when the Stamps defence handed the ball to the offence on a fumble recovery and an interception.

"I felt like we had a chance to turn the momentum and really start flying, but it didn't happen," said Dickenson.

The Stamps now have four days to turn things around and get a measure of redemption and try to win their third straight road game.

"We've got lots to improve on," said Dickenson, who completed four of eight passes in his relief appearance.

"We felt we played well, but we'll have to be a lot better to beat them up there."

Dickenson had only thrown one pass this season coming into yesterday's contest after being released by B.C. shortly after their season ended last year.

He's taken on more of a mentor role, but he could be back in the spotlight with a short week of practise.

"The way the schedule worked, we haven't played a lot of games lately and inactivity hurts offences," said Dickenson.

"Edmonton wasn't on top of their game until the second half, but they found their rhythm."

Now the Stamps have to find theirs.
