    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 4, 2013

    Stamps Jabari Arthur makes the big catches
    The Calgary Stampeders have the best record in the CFL, and have scored the most points. And they’re doing it with a group of receivers that aren’t household names. One of the feel good stories is a big target making big catches. As Kevin Smith reports, Jabari Arthur is Canadian born…

    This Saturday, the Stampeders will be recognizing the tremendous amateur football program in Calgary when the Winnipeg Blue Bombers visit McMahon Stadium.
    The current Stamps roster features a number of graduates of the city’s minor football programs.

    Three former members of the Calgary Stampeders will officially be inducted in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame tonight in Edmonton.
    The two men going in the players’ category are both offensive linemen —Miles Gorrell and Dan Ferrone.

    Stephen: Pivotal decision and stretch looms for Stamps
    The Calgary Stampeders have stayed on the same message all season long: This game is the most important. No peaking ahead to future games and no scoreboard watching to see what other teams may or may not be doing.
    However, that approach will be put to the test this weekend.
    The Stampeders will conclude their season-series with Eastern teams this weekend, when they take on the Blue Bombers on Saturday night.

    Three's not a crowd in Calgary Stampeders' QB controversy
    There will come a time when the Calgary Stampeders will anoint one of its quarterback trio as ‘The Guy.’
    Just not right now.
    “Probably, but then again, it just depends how your team reacts to it,” Stamps offensive co-ordinator Dave Dickenson said Thursday when asked if they’ll need to name a starter down the stretch. “I just feel like our team has one of the best locker-rooms. I just don’t see any issues right now. There’s not any guys lobbying for this guy or that guy and the quarterbacks are just being so professional about it. But listen, they know it’s close. There’s not a clear-cut guy. Just play well and do your job.”

    Calgary Stampeders' Keon Raymond sidelined with hamstring injury
    Keon Raymond will get some rest.
    There won’t be any relaxation, however.
    Barring a last-minute improvement in his injured hamstring, the Calgary Stampeders veteran will sit out Saturday’s clash with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at McMahon Stadium (4:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), and it’s not exactly ideal.

    Stamps notes: Glenn likely to start, but Tate ready to go if needed
    The betting is that quarterback Kevin Glenn will get the start for the Calgary Stampeders when they entertain the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Saturday, but there is no question that Drew Tate is ready and oh so willing if called upon.
    “I’m No. 2 so . . . whenever I’m on the field, that’s the most important time to me,” said Tate after practice on Thursday. “It’s not about when I get on the field, it’s about what do I do when I get on the field. That’s where my focus is.”

    Stamps’ secondary showing off its versatility
    Versatility, thy name is the Calgary Stampeders’ secondary.
    The Stamps, given the nature of the individuals on that part of the field, have been able to shuffle guys around, move someone up or down, depending on who’s out with a nick or two. This week, Keon Raymond finds himself on the outside looking in, still hampered by a lower body injury and that means more sleight of hand on the part of the coaching staff.
