Riders defence picking up the slack

Offence wins games and defence wins championships.

That's one of the oldest sayings when it comes to the game of football. However, for the Riders right now it's coming down to defence wins games and defence wins championships.

The Riders have now played four games and in three of them the defence has been good enough to win, two of them they were flat out dominant. In the one game the defence didn't play well the team was destroyed by the Toronto Argonauts.

Body found in Moose Jaw River

A man's body was pulled out of the Moose Jaw River on Monday night just behind the Union Hospital.

Moose Jaw Police Chief Rick Bourassa says at first glance, there appears to be nothing suspicious about the death but the investigation is on-going.

“There’s nothing at this time to indicate anything suspicious about the death that occurred there but again, we have a lot of investigative work to do yet,” Bourassa said.

John Chick getting after it early in 2014

Whether it's fair or not, the 2014 Saskatchewan Roughriders are consistently being compared to the team that won the Grey Cup in 2013.

Not surprisingly most of those comparisons aren't exactly positive right now as the offence certainly isn't clicking the way the 2013 version did. That's understandable though when you look at the list of players lost on that side of the ball.

The team's record isn't flawless like it was at this point last year and the defence and special teams aren't even as strong overall.
