    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for November 13, 2013

    Western Final preview: Stamps vs Riders
    The Stamps and Riders meet once again this Sunday at McMahon in the Western Final. As Grant Pollock reports, after a weekend off from playing, the Stamps are ready to get back on the field, regardless of the weather.

    Work for Western Final begins
    The Stamps were back on the field on Tuesday to prepare for the Western Final on Sunday. Head Coach/GM John Hufnagel, DB Keon Raymond, QB Kevin Glenn and RB Jon Cornish spoke with the media.

    Calgary Stampeders receiver Joe West ready for CFL's West final
    This time around, Joe West is ready to go.
    The last time the Calgary Stampeders wideout attempted to return from the separated shoulder he suffered in the
    Week 4 against the Montreal Alouettes, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder racked up eight catches for 120 yards in
    Week 15 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, before aggravating the injury and heading to the locker room.

    Jon Cornish, Calgary Stampeders plan to take out the trash-talker
    Dwight Anderson isn’t allowed to be Dwight Anderson.
    But give it some time.
    In the least surprising news of the march to the 2013 Grey Cup, Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach Corey Chamblin has reportedly told his players to keep their mouths shut in the days leading up to Sunday’s West final clash at McMahon Stadium (2:30 p.m., TSN/News Talk 770).
    And D.A. is likely the reason why.

    More big plays needed from Calgary Stampeders receiver Maurice Price
    Being quiet isn’t a big part of Maurice Price’s repertoire.
    Especially when it comes to on-field production.
    But over the past two months, the Calgary Stampeders playmaker has taken a backseat when it comes to web-gems and big numbers.
    Since Price hit paydirt five weeks ago against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, the 6-foot-1, 205-lb. burner hasn’t found the endzone.

    Saskatchewan Roughriders vow to tone down trash talk about Stamps
    An ability to flush bad memories is a prerequisite for being a defensive back.
    For such a player, the reality of life in the CFL dictates that even the best cover man will be burned for a long reception. Dwight Anderson and the Saskatchewan Roughriders are preparing to meet Calgary in Sunday's West Division final. When the teams last met, the Stampeders won 29-25 at McMahon Stadium on Oct. 26 to clinch first place in the West.

    Stampeders make the most of extra time before division final against Roughriders
    With players moving in and out of the lineup, the bye week was especially beneficial for the Calgary Stampeders.
    The Stampeders have the luxury of more time to prepare for next Sunday's Western Division final than the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who are coming off their division semifinal win Sunday over the B.C. Lions.
    Calgary won the West with the CFL's best record of 14-4. So instead of preparing to win a game last week, the Stampeders got an early start on adjusting to life without injured receiver Marquay McDaniel and defensive tackles Demonte Bolden and Micah Johnson.

    Stamps-Riders Western final showdown a fitting season finale to a colourful rivalry
    From Jon Cornish’s malfunctioning trousers on the Mosaic sidelines to the provocative verbal callisthenics of Dwight Anderson here at McMahon.
    From the shimmering/simmering Kory Sheets-Cornish overland duel to those five helmet-to-helmet playoff collisions over the past seven Novembers.
    From the busloads of watermelon-heads who’ll make their way east from Balgonie and Wapella, Esterhazy and, of course, Regina, to the transplanted sodbusters who’ve migrated to the opportunity-laden oil-soaked foot of the Rocky Mountains.

    Stamps scheme to find way to slow down Darian Durant
    When Darian Durant tucked the ball in and took off downfield, turning the CFL Western semifinal around, Rick Campbell didn’t have to wonder where he’d seen this flick before.
    “Whenever we’ve played Saskatchewan this year, we’ve always made it a point to put emphasis on him running, even though he hasn’t run as much,” explained the Calgary Stampeders’ defensive co-ordinator. “Over the years, he’s always been a good runner, so I wasn’t really surprised by that. We need to do a good job in our pass rush lanes and make sure we keep him in the pocket.”

    Stamps notes: Key receivers returning from injury in time for Western final
    There is perhaps no Calgary Stampeder more impatient to get onto the field in the Western Final on Sunday than Joe West.
    In his second season with the CFL club and having gone through a hellish year with shoulder problems, he couldn’t have picked a more opportune time to be healthy.
    “I’ve looked forward to this game so bad for the whole season,” admitted the 29-year-old receiver. “Going from last season, watching the Grey Cup — I didn’t get to play in it — I’m motivated. My teammates do a good job every day in practice and in the game. That’s what we do. We feed off each other and as long as I’ve got my teammates, the sky’s the limit.”

    Exciting times: Hufnagel, Stamps amped for Western Final
    John Hufnagel insists he didn't prefer one opponent over the other for the Western Final.
    But the coach of the Calgary Stampeders acknowledges the atmosphere at McMahon Stadium will be more electric next Sunday because it's the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
    "It will be an exciting stadium on Sunday,'' Hufnagel said Sunday. "It will be capacity or close to capacity because we're playing Saskatchewan.''
    A 25-29 win over the B.C. Lions in Sunday's division Semi-Final sends the Roughriders to Calgary, where so many Saskatchewan expats reside.
