    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for July 26, 2013

    Stamps Game Day: Calgary at Winnipeg

    Paredes' Streak Still Alive
    “Last game, I will admit, I cheered for the Montreal Alouettes on a few plays. Toward the end of the game, Stamps kicker, Rene Paredes, was 4 for 4 in field goals and within one kick of Paul McCallum’s record of 30 field goal kicks in a row set in 2011. I wanted to see Rene tie the record in front of Stampeder fans. Thus, I was cheering for the Alouettes defense to stop the Stamps offence on a 2nd down play to force the Stamps to try the field goal attempt. By the way, one of fans who called in criticized me for cheering for the Alouettes. It was only one play!

    Stampeders to make game-day QB call against Bombers
    The Calgary Stampeders will make a game-day call on their starting quarterback, but the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have locked in backup Justin Goltz for Friday.

    Mitchell remains on track to start for Stampeders, but final decision will be made before kickoff
    Upon touchdown in Winnipeg Thursday afternoon, John Hufnagel stuck to the script.
    The identity of his starting quarterback for tonight’s clash with the Blue Bombers — Drew Tate or Bo Levi Mitchell — is a game-time decision based on the performance of Tate’s wonky throwing arm in the warm-up

    Cornish heads into bye week with a much different feeling than last year
    Tim Burke has devised a creative game plan to shut down Calgary Stampeders tailback Jon Cornish.
    Too bad it won’t fly in the eyes of the officials.

    Stampeders receiver Nik Lewis shrugs off 'Just Another Guy' comment
    Nik Lewis has never been one to shy away from a little trash-talk.
    But if you thought he’d be angry by someone calling him ‘just another guy,’ think again.

    Simpson, Cornish should see ball plenty in Stampeders-Bombers tilt
    A good running game can be a quarterback’s best friend.
    Especially when the young pivot is making his first professional start.

    Hall of a start to season should worry Stampeders
    Looks can be deceiving.
    The Winnipeg Blue Bombers lead the CFL with 19 quarterback sacks. Those numbers usually indicate a blitz-happy defensive scheme.

    There’s a rumour going around that I might be hitting the century mark — 100 games played — this Friday when we face off with Winnipeg.
