    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 7, 2015

    Huff post-practice comments - Oct. 6

    Coach Hufnagel talks about special teams, Tim Brown returning and what he saw from OL Derek Dennis.

    Brown post-practice comments - Oct. 6
    KR Tim Brown may come off the six-game injury list early and be ready to play against Edmonton.

    2015 Pink Merchandise
    The Canadian Cancer Society will once again be selling pink merch - a reversible toque, mittens and a scarf - at Saturday's PinkPower game.


    The Stamps gave him a second chance, and Brandon McDonald returned the favour.
    After appearing in two games for Calgary in 2014, the defensive back was acquired by Ottawa last year but he recently re-joined the Red and White and promptly turned in an impressive road outing against the Tiger-Cats.
    “It felt good to be back out on the field. It felt good to be back in this environment, and it felt good to come out with the win,” stated McDonald, who hails from Collins, Miss.

    Calgary Stampeders concerned about loose punt-return coverage
    Considering what happened in the dying seconds of the Grey Cup, it was almost comical when Brandon Banks returned a punt 67 yards for a touchdown in the CFL season-opener way back in June.
    Since then, however, things have been anything but funny for the Calgary Stampeders in punt coverage.
    There were no smiles cracked when Montreal Alouettes burner Stefan Logan broke off a 74-yard punt-return score in Week 6.
    Same thing in Week 13 when Chris Rainey sifted through the Stamps cover-team for a 103-yard touchdown to get the B.C. Lions back in a game they had no business being in.

    Stampeders notes: Players turning to yoga to stay fit, focused
    Weights, the bike and the Downward-facing Dog.
    That’s the new exercise regimen for today’s football player. Or even some of the old-timers. Quarterback Henry Burris, after his record-setting performance last Thursday, credited yoga for keeping him in the finest form at 40.
    Seems the Calgary Stampeders are in on that wave as well.
    The offensive line makes yoga classes a ritual and that’s a visual in itself … 6-foot, 300-pound-plus guys in Happy Baby Pose.

    With a sack in six-straight games, Stamps' Bishop hoping to get after Eskimos
    If you listen to DeVone Claybrooks, you can thank the guys who gum up the middle on the Calgary Stampeders’ defensive line. According to Rich Stubler, it’s due the defensive backs’ coverage.
    Freddie Bishop III is fine with either rationale.
    “Hey man, a lot of things have to go right for a guy to get sacks,” chortled the third-year defensive end. “Coach Claybrooks was right AND Coach Stubes was right. It all works together.”

    Battle of Alberta could determine first in West
    The CFL’s schedule makers probably looked at this game last winter and thought it had the potential to be a big one.
    Well, it’s even bigger than they could have imagined.
    The Edmonton Eskimos will take their 10-4 record down Highway 2 to battle the Calgary Stampeders, who have a one-game advantage atop the West Division at 11-3.
