    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 15, 2014


    One tally, the one on the scoreboard, showed a 40-33 Calgary victory.
    The second, played out in the training room and doctors’ offices, was far less enjoyable for Stampeders fans.
    No fewer than five players were knocked out of action Saturday including starting quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, leading receiver Marquay McDaniel, sack leader Charleston Hughes, defensive tackle Demonte’ Bolden and special-teams ace Ben D’Aguilar.

    Here’s a closer look at the Stamps’ rousing 40-33 comeback victory over the Toronto Argonauts at McMahon Stadium

    DL DeQuin Evans and DB Quincy Butler both made major contributions in the Stamps' 40-33 thrilling come-from-behind victory against the visiting Toronto Argos on Saturday evening. The win improved Calgary's overall record to 10-1 — including 5-1 at home — and halted Toronto's three-game winning streak in Southern Alberta.
    The Week 12 showdown with the Boatmen marked a long-awaited return to the lineup for the two defensive standouts. Evans saw his first action since July 12 due to a leg injury while Butler last took the field in the early stages of the 2013 season after going down with a torn ACL. Including playoff contests, Evans and Butler had missed a combined 32 games prior to their respective returns this weekend.

    Drew Tate to start at QB next week for Calgary Stampeders
    Drew Tate is back in the saddle.
    The Calgary Stampeders backup quarterback is now the starter … again.
    With Bo Levi Mitchell on the sideline with ankle and knee injuries sustained late in Saturday’s wild 40-33 victory over the Toronto Argonauts at McMahon Stadium, Tate will call the shots next Sunday in Montreal against the host Alouettes (11 a.m., TSN/News Talk 770).

    Calgary Stampeders trio leading charge against domestic violence
    The game of football has seen better days.
    The past week has been, at least south of the border, it’s been a public relations nightmare for the sport.
    Not so much in Calgary.
    Because for every Ray Rice, there’s a Keon Raymond.

    Calgary Stampeders' game balls and game bricks
    No lead is safe in the CFL.
    Well … at least not a 26-point bulge.
    The Calgary Stampeders equalled a 27-year-old record for the biggest comeback in franchise history as they scrapped their way back from a 29-3 deficit to post a stunning 40-33 victory Saturday night over the Toronto Argonauts at McMahon Stadium.

    Stamps notes: Mayo stayed calm after Slaton’s offside kick
    Heading into a battle of first place teams, the Calgary Stampeders expected a hard physical matchup. Deron Mayo certainly didn’t expect anyone to get up close and personal, especially with the game on the line.
    With 4:42 left on the clock in a 33-33 game, the Stampeders defence stuffed Toronto Argonauts running back Steve Slaton. Obviously frustrated, Slaton then kicked Mayo where the sun don’t shine, earning himself an ejection and 17-yard penalty for his struggling offence in the 40-33 Stamps win.

    Drew Tate’s clutch relief appearance huge for Stampeders
    That unbridled elation, the raw, unfettered Texas temperament that once held sway here, is back.
    A week. A fortnight. A month. No one can pinpoint with any degree of certainty for how long, but the darkly-tinted-windshield-attached-to-the-helmet look is suddenly very much in vogue again, too.

    Victory takes toll on Stamps as list of walking wounded grows
    The 10th win of the season, as spectacular as it was on Saturday night, certainly took its toll on the Calgary Stampeders.
    At least the prognosis isn’t quite as dire as it looked when player after player left on a cart in the second half of a 40-33 comeback victory over the Toronto Argonauts.
    The victory certainly softens the blow of losing five players to injury, but at least only two of those appear to be long-term, and starting quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell isn’t one of them.
