CFL on TSN analyst Dave Naylor takes a look at three keys to success for each team heading into the 2012 regular season.

1. Is Drew Tate ready to be a starter?

He has just four starts on his CFL resume, but the Stampeders felt confident enough in the 27-year-old to part with former MOP Henry Burris. Tate showed some brilliance late last season but doing it for the entire year will be a different kind of challenge.

2. The pass rush

Calgary was last in the CFL at getting to the quarterback last season, but a healthy Corey Mace at defensive tackle (season-ending injury in Week 1 last season) and the addition of former Eskimo sack leader Ken Pettway should give the Stamps more push up front.

3. Eric Fraser

The Stamps are converting to a Canadian safety this season and are counting on the 25-year-old third-year pro to be ready to handle the starter's role.
