    Sights and Sounds Sept. 13, 2014
    See what it was like on the field for the big comeback win over the Argonauts.

    Cornish player of the week again
    RB Jon Cornish collected both CFL offensive and Canadian player of the week for his performance against Toronto on Sept. 13.

    "Leading Change"

    The Calgary Stampeders are involved in a new initiative called "Leading Change"; the program centers on a belief in the power of peers to create social change and empower youth with leadership. The focus is on promoting respectful relationships and recognizing and interrupting inappropriate and abusive behavior. Stamps receiver Anthony Parker joined The Big Show to talk about the program.


    The Stampeders travel to Montreal this week to face the Alouettes in a Sunday matinee. Kickoff at Molson Stadium is 11 a.m. MDT.
    The West Division-leading Stamps are riding a six-game winning streak and are unbeaten on the road so far in 2014 with a 5-0 mark. Calgary improved to 10-1 on Saturday with a 40-33 comeback victory over the Toronto Argonauts at McMahon Stadium.

    Calgary Stampeders QB Drew Tate putting in the work
    Drew Tate and Bo Levi Mitchell are proven winners.
    But they go about their tasks in drastically different ways.
    While Mitchell, the Calgary Stampeders injured starting quarterback, is a quiet leader who avoids the spotlight, Tate brings a fiery approach and plays on the edge.

    Calgary Stampeders Notes: Two weekly awards for Jon Cornish
    Jon Cornish was named the CFL’s offensive and Canadian player of the week.
    In other news, the sun came up in the east and water is still wet.
    The Calgary Stampeders star running back has become somewhat of a victim of his own success.

    Calgary Stampeders QB Bo Levi Mitchell to stick close with CFL club
    Bo Levi Mitchell is going to Montreal.
    The 24-year-old quarterback won’t suit up against the host Alouettes.
    But he wants his teammates to know he’s with them even if his knee/ankle won’t let him on the field.

    Stamps’ depleted defensive line adjusting to new personnel
    In his lengthy playing career on both sides of the border, DeVone Claybrooks never witnessed the felling of three defensive linemen in one game.
    “No, not at all,” chortled the Calgary Stampeders’ defensive line coach. “Luckily, we’re always prepared for any situation, any circumstance. Coach Huff preaches that and he practises that.”

    Stamps notes: Despite broken hand, McDaniel should return before playoffs
    He was having himself a tidy season, well on his way to another 1,000 yards.
    But, alas, receiver Marquay McDaniel will be — for the foreseeable future — another interested observer.
    McDaniel broke his hand in the comeback win against Toronto on the weekend, one of several Calgary Stampeders to book a ticket into sick bay. On Tuesday, he was on the field and wistfully thinking about what might have been.

    Argos haunted by usual demons in loss to Stamps
    The Calgary Stampeders beat the Toronto Argonauts 40-33 with a tremendous second half Saturday, but another starting quarterback in the CFL is injured.
    Trailing by 19 points at halftime, Calgary rallied with four touchdowns and a pair of two-point converts to remain atop both the CFL and West Division standings at 10-1.
