    Taking an inside look at the Stampeders’ touchdown tradition

    Stampeders GM/coach John Hufnagel allows himself to enjoy success
    John Hufnagel rarely allows himself to smell the roses.
    The Calgary Stampeders GM/head coach is constantly searching for ways to improve his football team.
    But after Friday’s 26-22 comeback win over the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Huff took a puff.

    Sig Gutsche fondly remembered by former and current Stampeders brass
    Sig Gutsche was no Jerry Jones.
    And for that, the Calgary Stampeders and their fans are thankful.
    While Jones, the owner of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, continually meddles with his team, Gutsche allowed his football people to run the Red & White.

    Gutsche remembered as ‘charismatic serial entrepreneur’ who stepped up for Stamps
    He was the businessman who brought the Calgary Stampeders back from the verge of collapse and turned the team into one of the Canadian Football League’s hallmark franchises.
    Former Stampeders owner Sig Gutsche, 64, died Saturday of a heart attack.
    In a statement issued by the team, longtime club official Stan Schwartz praised Gutsche for his passion and commitment.

    Sig Gutsche remembered as a generous owner who saved the Calgary Stampeders
    As someone who made a nice living, found fame, playing pitch and catch, Jeff Garcia appreciates a trustworthy pair of hands.
    So what he was remembering most Monday was Sig Gutsche’s sure-handed, hands-on approach.
    “That connection an owner sometimes has with his players, that Sig had with us back then . . .,” said the former Calgary Stampeders’ and NFL Pro-Bowl quarterback from his home in California. “Well, it doesn’t happen often.
    “It’s a rarity.

    Stamps clinch playoff spot at 9-2 but have no plans to rest on their laurels
    John Hufnagel knows the Calgary Stampeders are an imperfect 9-2 and that there is always work to be done, but nothing perhaps so major that a few healthy bodies shouldn’t fix.
    “It’s just something that we know we have to improve in all areas,” said the Stamps’ GM/head coach on Monday, the football club’s day off, “and hopefully we can get the guys back that have been injured, have been starters at the beginning of the year, and get them playing good football. If they don’t return, then we’ll get better with the guys we have.”

    Stampeders yet to hit full stride despite success
    Head coach John Hufnagel hasn’t always been satisfied with the performance of his Calgary Stampeders in games this season, but he can’t argue with the results.
    Calgary tops both the league and the West Division at 9-2 and is the first team this season to secure a playoff berth.
    “We’ve won in different fashions, but we won as a team and that’s the good part,” Hufnagel said Monday.

    Hufnagel's gutsy call pays off in Stamps win
    The Calgary Stampeders kept several winning streaks alive with a 26-22 comeback victory Friday night over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at McMahon Stadium.
    The result extends the Stamps’ current in-season win streak to four games. That’s the longest active run of success and Calgary’s second four-game winning streak this season.
    The Red and White also stretches its home winning streak to 10 games and its home-field run of victories at the expense of the Ticats to nine.
