    Highlights from Fan Appreciation Night
    Fan and game highlights from Fan Appreciation Night on July 13 as the Stamps defeated the Argos.

    Stamps step up to fend off late push by Argos
    The Stampeders lost two starting tackles in the first half, but Jon Cornish says everyone stepped up to fill the void especially defensive lineman Quinn Smith who was forced to play a whole new position.

    Stampeders makeshift offensive line gets it done
    After two starting offensive lineman went down with injury in the first half, the Stampeders were forced to use defensive lineman Quinn Smith at guard. The CFL on TSN panel breakdown their impressive performance.

    Late drive seals Stampeders' win
    With a two-point lead late in the fourth quarter, the Stampeders marched down the field and converted a clutch field goal. Chris Schultz breaks down their late-game excecution.


    The Stampeders overcame several injuries and a flurry of flags to knock off the previously unbeaten Toronto Argonauts 25-20 on Monday night at McMahon Stadium.
    Calgary (2-1) prevailed despite being penalized 18 times and losing starting offensive tackles Edwin Harrison and Dan Federkeil in the first half.
    Backup Brad Erdos stepped in and defensive lineman Quinn Smith traded in his No. 90 jersey for No. 68 so that he could be eligible to play on the offensive line.

    Mitchell's two TDs lead Stamps past Argos
    Bo Levi Mitchell did most of the damage offensively, but Quinn Smith's versatility drew praise from teammates Monday night.
    Mitchell threw two touchdown passes to lead the Calgary Stampeders over the Toronto Argonauts 25-20 at McMahon Stadium.
    Meanwhile, Smith was pressed into duty on the offensive line after both Edwin Harrison and Dan Federkeil went down in the second quarter with lower leg injuries.

    Calgary Stampeders plagued by penalties against Toronto Argonauts
    Flag down.
    Get used to it.
    It was a beautiful sound last November in the Grey Cup, but the phrase has become as ugly as nails on a chalkboard to start the 2015 CFL season.
    By the end of the night Monday at McMahon Stadium, the officials’ flags were in tatters from overuse and the Calgary Stampeders were the ones marching backwards on a constant basis.
    It wasn’t just one game, either.

    Calgary Stampeders offensive line takes a beating
    From o-line to uh-oh!
    Or, oh [email protected]*&.
    The Grey Cup-winning 2014 season was indeed of the Year of the Horse for the Calgary Stampeders.
    So far, ’15 is turning into the Year of the Hearse for the hoggies of the Red & White. (OK, it’s not really a hearse used to carry injured players off the field, but the tractor-cart which takes them away mid-game may as well be at times.)
    For how much the CFL is a quarterback league and all the glory goes to the skill players on both sides of the ball, absolutely no team wins without a good offensive line providing pass protection and creating running lanes.

    Calgary Stampeders defence comes up big in win over Toronto Argonauts
    Defence wins championships.
    It can also win football games when your offence is debilitated.
    With the Calgary Stampeders offensive line decimated by injuries, moving the ball became almost impossible.
    But the defence — largely intact from last November’s Grey Cup victory — stepped in and shut down the Toronto Argonauts in Friday’s 25-20 victory at McMahon Stadium.

    Stamps hang on for big 25-20 win over Argos
    It took awhile.
    Almost the entirety of the allotted 60 minutes, in fact.
    Until 10:07 p.m., exactly, with just 48 ticks remaining on the McMahon Stadium scoreboard clock.
    But somewhere in that big press-box in the sky, the late Dandy Don Meredith finally got to let loose with a rendition of “Turn out the lights, the party’s oooooooover . . . ” on the Toronto Argonauts.
    Monday Night Football, the three-down version, ended with the Calgary Stampeders hanging in and hanging on for a 25-20 victory.

    Calgary holds on in fourth quarter thriller
    The Calgary Stampeders were able to hold off a second-half surge from the Toronto Argonauts to pull out a 25-20 victory on Monday night at McMahon Stadium.
    Despite being able to generate only a field goal in the second half, the Stamps' ability to jump out to an early lead help them secure the win.
    Bo Levi Mitchell was able to silence some of his critics in the win by putting up his most impressive numbers of the season. Mitchell was 25-for-34 and 303 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the victory.

    Stamps edge Argos thanks to big second quarter, but suffer significant losses
    The Calgary Stampeders' 25-20 victory over the Toronto Argonauts Monday night was much-needed, but it wasn't necessarily convincing, and it came with major losses. Calgary emerged with the win thanks to a dazzling 22-point second quarter and a game-clinching, clock-eating 13-play, 62-yard drive that led to a late field goal, but there were plenty of questions about the team's play during the rest of the game, and the losses of offensive linemen Dan Federkeil and Edwin Harrison (which forced defensive tackle Quinn Smith to switch lines mid-game, earning the game ball in the process) and receiver Simon Carbonneau-Champeau may hurt the Stampeders in the long run. Still, while this wasn't a throughly-great performance from Calgary, it did produce an important result, it did illustrate some improvement, and it came against an Argonauts' squad that had played very well through the first two weeks of the season. For the moment, that's a good sign.

    Stamps survive major injuries and a plethora of penalties to beat Argos
    It wasn’t pretty, but considering the circumstances, the Calgary Stampeders pulled out a great win against the Toronto Argonauts during the CFL’s version of Monday Night Football.
    Before halftime was out, the Stamps had lost both Edwin Harrison and Dan Federkeil to leg injuries, leaving defensive tackle Quinn Smith to play right guard and fresh-faced Brad Erdos at right tackle.
    At least they had a lead at that point, and they would need a gritty defensive effort in the second half to preserve the win, their second in as many home dates, improving to 2-1 on the year.

    Stampeders stop Argos
    Trevor Harris did his best once again, only this time he required help.
    When it didn’t come, the Argos would succumb to the host Stamps, who were marginally better than the visitors on this night, escaping with a 25-20 win.
    One can count on one finger the amount of errant throws Harris made, who stood tall, sometimes in the face of pressure.
    For Toronto, it was the team’s first loss following two wins.
