    Stampeders must recapture fire vs. Lions

    They left for Montreal without their starting quarterback, top running back, most productive receiver and their sack leader. But, at least when the Stampeders boarded the plane for Montreal, they knew those key players would be left behind.
    What they didn’t count on leaving behind was their emotion. The Stampeders know they have to pick up their intensity level as they approach this Saturday's game with the BC Lions.

    Calgary Stampeders will have Jock Sanders back in lineup this weekend
    When he gets his hands on the football, Jock Sanders is known for being electric.
    But, for two straight games now, the Calgary Stampeders return-man has been unplugged.
    That could change Saturday at McMahon Stadium (7:30 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770) against the B.C. Lions (7-5).

    Stamps notes: D-line focusing on pressure, Mitchell staying patient
    There’s more to the men on the defensive line than the ability to mow down the opposition and get their hands on the quarterback, especially this season in Calgary, with musical chairs being played loud and often.
    “Absolutely, that’s why I say this game is 80 per cent mental, 20 per cent physical,” mused Freddie Bishop III, who has suited up at both end and tackle. “You always have to have your mind into it. Even when I was hurt, I had to have my mind into it. Keeping up with plays, keeping up with the shuffling, so that when I come in I have a better awareness of where I’m going to fit in and how I’m going to have to adjust my play.”

    Stubler decries lack of passion, surmises ‘mid-season malaise’ has crept into Stamps defence
    No one can assess Rich Stubler’s defence better than the man himself and what ails them is pretty obvious to him.
    “We just need to get back to playing with passion,” offered the Calgary Stampeders’ defensive co-ordinator. “That’s something we’ve addressed and hopefully we’re over the mark with that.”
    Calgary, 10-2, has a couple of days to brush up on the B.C. Lions, 7-5, as their Western rivals are the opposition on Saturday night, 7:30 kickoff, at McMahon Stadium for the second meeting of the season.

    Stamps' QB Tate: 'I've got to play better'
    Drew Tate got his first start of the 2014 season on Sunday with Bo Levi Mitchell out of the lineup due to ankle and knee injuries he suffered last week.
    Heading into the matchup, Tate had never lost a regular season game that he started and played from start to finish -- an impressive 8-0 record.
    But that changed on Sunday, as the Stamps fell to the Alouettes 31-15 at the Hall of Fame game in Montreal.

    His name was Earl Lunsford.
    One of his nicknames, as is more or less mandated for anyone named “Earl” who enjoys success in sports, was “The Pearl.”
    The native of Stillwater, Okla., was certainly a gem of a player for the Calgary Stampeders in 1956 and from 1959-63 (he served in the U.S. military between his Calgary stints).
