    Rest vs. rust debate begins in Calgary

    And so it begins for the Calgary Stampeders.
    The challenge of putting together a roster for the final two regular season games. The challenge of keeping players sharp, while not exposing them to injury. But with a team only able to dress 44 players, the options are limited for any team or coach.
    Then there is the myriad of roster decisions that must be made in advance of the division final.

    The Calgary Stampeder Football Club is proud to announce the winners of the 2014 Stan Schwartz Heart of a Champion Awards.
    The awards are presented annually to high school senior football players throughout the city of Calgary. The Stan Schwartz Heart of a Champion Awards recognize players who have made significant contributions on and off the field to their team, school and community and have shown perseverance.

    Stamps DT Micah Johnson rehabs injured knee
    Micah Johnson is all-too familiar with the city of Atlanta.
    For the second time in less than a year, the Calgary Stampeders defensive tackle has set up shop in the south to rehab a torn ACL in his left knee, after going down against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats more than two months ago.
    This time, Johnson wasn’t messing around with his knee or his career, as he went to noted orthopaedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who performed Johnson’s second knee reconstruction in 10 months, repairing a torn meniscus and taking a patellar tendon graft from his right knee and turning it into a new ACL for the 6-foot-2, 276-pounder.

    Calgary Stampeders DL welcomes Bombers in quest for record
    It’s been a decade and a half since an in-his-prime Joe Montford was terrorizing CFL quarterbacks.
    For five straight seasons, the undersized defensive end came off the edge with enough impact to be named a CFL all-star during his time with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (1998-01) and Toronto Argonauts (‘02).
    In 2000, he set a CFL record with eight forced fumbles, which was equalled in ’02 by Ottawa Renegades linebacker John Grace.

    Calgary Stampeders Notes: Simon Charbonneau-Campeau works way back from concussion
    Simon Charbonneau-Campeau has seen the replays of the hellacious hit that knocked him out cold and left him sprawled on the Mosaic Stadium turf more than three weeks ago.
    The Calgary Stampeders receiver still doesn’t recall a thing, though.
    “Yeah, I’ve looked at it,” Charbonneau-Campeau said of the inadvertent helmet-to-helmet blow levied by Saskatchewan Roughriders defensive back Marshay Green on Oct. 3. “I don’t think it was a nasty hit or a cheap hit. He played the ball the way he should play it. That’s the kind of hit that can happen in football. It’s a contact sport and I just got unlucky on that one.

    Stamps just going for the win, not the sack record against beleaguered Blue Bombers
    The sight of a shell-shocked Drew Willy plopped to the turf a total of 10 times by various B.C. Lions last weekend in Winnipeg might elicit a glint in the collective eyes of the defensive linemen that get to line up against him next.
    “One thing you learn about this league,” began Calgary Stampeders’ defensive line coach DeVone Claybrooks, “if you give up 10 sacks one week you probably won’t give up 10 the next week because those coaches get paid, too, and they’re going to definitely scheme, devise something to take away the things they weren’t able to do the past week.
    “We just want to come out and focus on what we need to do, that’s winning the one-on-ones and be in the position we need to be in. If the sacks happen, the sacks happen.”

    Stamps notes: Receiver recalls running into a brick wall in Regina
    It certainly wouldn’t be recommended for lighthearted viewing, but Simon Charbonneau-Campeau was compelled to watch the video of the Calgary Stampeders’ game earlier this month in Regina.
    It was on the Mosaic Field turf that the lanky receiver lay in a crumpled heap, after running into a brick wall that was Saskatchewan defensive back Marshay Green as he attempted to catch a Drew Tate pass.
    Charbonneau-Campeau didn’t recall the incident and woke up on the trainer’s table, wondering just how he got there.

    Jamar Wall's pick-six was crucial to Calgary's comeback Saturday, a Stampeders' trend
    One recurring theme this CFL season has been that you can never count the Calgary Stampeders out. Despite numerous injuries to stars such as RB Jon Cornish and QB Bo Levi Mitchell, plus their receiving corps and offensive line, the Stamps have put up a league-best 14-2 record and clinched first place in the West. They've also become known for big comebacks, with their latest one seeing them outscore Saskatchewan 25-0 in the fourth quarter of a 40-27 win Saturday. One of the most critical moments there came with just over five minutes left. Calgary had taken a 30-27 lead, but Kerry Joseph was trying to get the Riders back on top, and he launched a pass 30 yards in the air from his own 20-yard line towards receiver Rob Bagg.
