    Huff: lack of discipline led to loss

    Stampeders head coach and GM John Hufnagel tells Boomer that a rare lack of discipline cost the team a win vs the Blue Bombers last week.

    Tate to start, Mitchell will play as well for Stampeders vs. Lions

    Jon Cornish and Maurice Price will be out Friday but that won’t be the only lineup change for the Calgary Stampeders when they take on the BC Lions in each team’s regular season finale.
    Head coach John Hufnagel told reporters after practice Tuesday that Drew Tate would get the start at QB but that Bo Levi Mitchell would also see some game action.

    Calgary Stampeders to start Drew Tate at QB in finale
    Bo Levi Mitchell will get to fire a few bullets.
    But the Calgary Stampeders quarterback won’t have a lot of ammo Friday night in Vancouver.
    Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel said Tuesday that Drew Tate would start against the Lions (8 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770).
    “Both Drew and Bo will play in the game,” Hufnagel said. “We’re planning on starting Drew.
    “We’ll get him a game where he has to prepare as the starter.”

    CFL debut ain't snow game for rookie
    In the grand scheme of things, this weekend’s game on the West Coast means little to the Calgary Stampeders.
    Neither did last weekend’s tilt.
    But they mean plenty to rookie receiver Kamar Jorden, who is looking to impress the coaching staff.
    “Every game I play in, I want to make a big impact,” Jorden said. “That’s the way I go about football.

    'Quay slots back in
    The 2013 regular season finale was costly for Marquay McDaniel.
    The Calgary Stampeders slotback, who was the club’s leading receiver, suffered a high-ankle sprain in a meaningless, devastating year-end loss at BC Place and was lost for the playoffs.
    A year later, McDaniel can’t wait to get to Vancouver and bang some of the rust off his now-healed broken hand that put him on the six-game injured list.
    “It’s definitely important,” McDaniel said. “I missed six games, almost two months.

    Paredes aims to finish ‘terrible’ season on a strong note
    When Rene Paredes watched a ball he struck with some authority from 32 yards out on snowy Saturday afternoon clank off the upright and drop depressingly to the turf, it was really a microcosm of his entire season.
    “Exactly,” sighed the fourth-year Calgary Stampeders’ placekicker. “That’s my year in a nutshell. I hit the ball well . . . I don’t like to sit down and give excuses, because I’m not that type of guy, everybody saw the weather. I hit the ball well, but it was my type of year basically. I’m hoping things will turn around starting this week.” Paredes aims finish terrible/10353728/story.html

    Stamps plan to play full throttle in meaningless season finale
    In assessing the violence, the risk, inherent in his sport, legendary Green Bay Packers’ coach Vince Lombardi came up with a unique slant.
    “Ballet,” he once reasoned, “is a contact sport. Football is a collision sport.”
    And so, when the Calgary Stampeders travel west to the evergreen playground to conclude seasonal commitments, a full two weeks before the more pressing business of Nov. 23rd’s West final, there is only one way, one speed, to go:

    Stamps notes: McDaniel returning from injury just in time
    As Marquay McDaniel puts the finishing touches on his return to the playing field this weekend, after a long seven-week stretch, he still considers himself lucky.
    “I feel blessed,” the Calgary Stampeder receiver insisted. “My season could be over. You see guys with lower body injuries. It’s not my knee, it’s not my foot, that would hurt a little bit more playing receiver, trying to come back from it. Last year I missed the playoff game. At least I get to come back before the playoffs.”
    McDaniel, who broke his hand on Sept. 13, will re-assume his status as Mr. Consistent for the Stamps as they close out the regular season in Vancouver against the B.C. Lions. Ironically, it was the 2013 season finale at BC Place that kept McDaniel out of the lineup for the West final, after he suffered a high ankle sprain. Stampeders Stamps notes/10353733/story.html
