    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 5, 2013

    Stamps vs Bombers: Sack title up for grabs
    On paper, the Stamps and Bombers game tomorrow is a lopsided match-up in almost every aspect. Except one. As Brendan Parker tells, fans at McMahon will see two of the league’s best pass rushers.

    On scene: Wardrobe scrutiny at McMahon
    Brendan Parker took some heat at Stampeders practice from Defensive Line coach Devone Claybrooks for his wardrobe choice on Friday, specifically his sweater.

    Pre-game comments
    Charleston Hughes and Kevin Glenn discuss Saturday's game against Winnipeg.

    Calgary Stampeders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers make QB's lives difficult
    If there was such a thing as quarterback insurance, a salesman could do pretty brisk business Saturday at McMahon Stadium.
    Both Calgary Stampeders quarterback Kevin Glenn and Winnipeg Blue Bombers pivot Max Hall won’t want to spend any more time than necessary holding onto the pigskin.

    Calgary Stampeders' Jamar Wall has chance to pick up more picks
    Jamar Wall isn’t going to cheat.
    Despite catching more passes than most Hamilton Tiger-Cats receivers last week in Guelph, the Calgary Stampeders defensive back insists he won’t be peeking in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers backfield Saturday.
    “You could have more opportunities, but you don’t want to go out there and try to make a big play because that’s when you mess up,” Wall said.

    Calgary Stampeders vow not to overlook lowly Winnipeg Blue Bombers
    No matter how you crunch the numbers, divide the details or drum up creative ways to bring motivation into the equation, you come to one conclusion: The Calgary Stampeders should not lose to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
    That’s all there is to it.
    One is a legitimate Grey Cup contender, arguably the favourite, sitting at 10-3.
    The other is a team that’s been sinking for months and is in evaluation mode for next season and beyond.

    Calgary Stampeders secondary doing hamstring shuffle
    One hamstring is healed, and one hamstring is hurting.
    And it’s left the Calgary Stampeders secondary mixing and matching the past two weeks.
    Halfback Brandon Smith, who missed last week’s win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, will return to the fold Saturday against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (4:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), but fellow six-year veteran Keon Raymond is expected to occupy the street-clothes sideline spot vacated by Smith with a hamstring strain of his own.

    Quarterback carousels going round-and-round in Calgary and Winnipeg
    Both carousels are going to need a tuneup in the off-season.
    The quarterback carousels, that is.
    When the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Calgary Stampeders trot their respective offences out onto the McMahon Stadium field Saturday (4:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), Max Hall and Kevin Glenn, respectively, will be calling the signals.
    Next week? Who knows.

    Stamps QB doesn’t see quit in Bombers
    Kevin Glenn does not buy the theory the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have packed it in for the 2013 Canadian Football League season.
    The Calgary Stampeders quarterback openly laughed Friday at reporters who floated the suggestion the 2-11 Bombers might report in physical body, but not mind or spirit, for Saturday’s game at McMahon Stadium.

    Gott has warrior mentality on Stampeders O-line
    Michael Gott’s first inclination of his son Jon’s pain tolerance came at a doctor’s office in Strathcona County just outside of Edmonton.
    “Jon was in the driveway playing baseball with his oldest brother,” Michael Gott says over the phone from the family home in Lethbridge. “Jon was pitching, and he got one right on the head.
    “It came up like a half goose-egg.”
    Maybe six at the time, Jon shrugged off the Fred Flintstone bump. His mom and dad, however, did not and rushed him to the walk-in clinic for medical attention.

    Hughes to Bombers: Stampeders have best defensive line
    Charleston Hughes is not one for political correctness, especially when it comes to his beliefs about where the Calgary Stampeders defensive line ranks compared to others in the Canadian Football League.
    And that includes the vaunted front four of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
    “It gets you a little excited knowing we’re considered the two best defensive lines in the league,” Hughes said about facing the Bombers Saturday at McMahon Stadium. “Obviously we are the best defensive line in the league.”
