    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 15, 2015

    Post-game comments - Sept. 12

    We hear from Coach Hufnagel, QB Bo Levi Mitchell, DB Joe Burnett and REC Anthony Parker.

    Sights & Sounds - Labour Day Rematch
    Some behind-the-scenes action of the Stamps road trip to Edmonton for the Labour Day Rematch.

    Corey Mace's #CFLInpired hats
    Have a look at the New Era #CFLInspired hat and toque designed by Stamps defensive lineman Corey Mace.


    The Calgary Stampeders are pleased to announce the return of the Back 2 School Drive to help local students in need.
    The program is an initiative created in 2014 by Bianca Raymond, wife of veteran Stampeders defensive back Keon Raymond.

    Calgary Stampeders burned by big plays
    Saturday wasn’t the Calgary Stampeders secondary’s finest hour.
    The Edmonton Eskimos went over the top several times as they dumped the Stamps 27-16 at Commonwealth Stadium.
    Stamps cornerback Joe Burnett wasn’t in chase mode but said there are some mistakes to be addressed.

    Cornish set to return with fourth rushing title firmly in his sights
    When Jon Cornish went down with a concussion after Week 1 of the 2014 season, it looked like his string of rushing titles and dominance was over.
    He missed six games, and came back with a vengeance, tearing into the CFL with six 100-yard games, four of which went over 155 yards, and won his third straight rushing title.
    This year, it’s the same scenario, except this time there is much less doubt about his injury. The Calgary Stampeders star running back is returning from a broken thumb, and as long as he can carry the ball, there won’t be much concern compared to the head injury.

    It’s not a QB problem, it’s an O-line issue!
    So it was very clear in the home and home Labour Day series with the Edmonton Eskimos that the Calgary Stampeders were offensively challenged.
    However, I was stunned during our post game show on Saturday night how some fans were so down on quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell! “He’s the most overrated QB in the league,” claimed one listener on our 770770 text line. “I can’t believe the Stamps didn’t make a QB change,” chimed in 5 or 6 more callers.
    Wow! Haters are going to hate.

    Eskimos' win enables fan to clear 24,576 beer debt
    Tim McMullen and his father, Herb were on their way home to Calgary late Saturday night, soaked and chilled to the bone, having witnessed their beloved Stampeders’ win streak against the arch-rival Edmonton Eskimos come to an end.
    Then the text messages started coming.
    “FINALLY!” one read.
    An exuberant stream of beer glass emojis followed. Tim sighed and his phone continued to vibrate as they drove through the rain down the QE2 Highway.

    With a patchworkf offensive line Cornish will be hard pressed to reach 800 yards on the season.

    Two issues which are of considerable concern if you are a Stamps fan is the O-Line and the secondary play.
