    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for November 10, 2014

    Eric Rogers making case for spot with Calgary Stampeders in CFL playoffs

    This isn’t the first time John Hufnagel has been faced with a tough decision.
    And it definitely won’t be the last.
    The Calgary Stampeders GM/head coach has been mixing and matching his receivers all CFL season long thanks to injuries, but heading into the West Final in two weeks time, he may have to decide which healthy contributor to sit.
    He can thank rookie Eric Rogers for that ‘problem.’
    Asked Saturday afternoon at McMahon Stadium if the 6-foot-3, 210-lb. Cali kid is making his job tough, the veteran ball coach admitted there’s going to be a bit of a practice-field battle going on leading into Nov. 23.

    Stamps notes: McDaniel’s return breathes optimism into team’s receiving corps
    The sure-handed slotback made a spectacular return to action, recording career bests in yards and receptions.
    The emerging Canadian receiver came back from injury too, making a highlight-reel grab.
    Plus the hotshot newcomer scored two touchdowns, showing off some of the skill that has the Calgary Stampeders brass excited.
    Unlike a year ago, when Marquay McDaniel was injured in the season-finale against the B.C. Lions, the Stamps come into the West final feeling much better about their receiving corps.

    In spite of bye, Stamps will keep pedal to the metal
    You couldn’t really blame the Calgary Stampeders if they wanted to sit back, put their feet up and let their two biggest rivals duke it out this week.
    The Stamps, with a franchise-record tying 15 wins, certainly earned the right to let the mind wander and the muscles relax until they find out whether it’s the Edmonton Eskimos or Saskatchewan Roughriders coming into McMahon Stadium Nov. 23.
    That’s not how they are approaching it though. They are calling this a ‘work week.’ There are practices on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and every other day there will players and coaches at McMahon Stadium going through the paces just like they would if they had a game on Sunday.

    It seems to be different focus this time around for the team.
    The only factor that has me worried is the weather. For some reason the team struggles with playing in less than ideal weather conditions.
