    Hufnagel: Stamps can't get too comfy

    Stampeders head coach and GM John Hufnagel tells Boomer there are always little things to work on, even for a team that's gone 9-1 on the season so far.

    McDaniel quietly among CFL's elite

    Slotback Marquay McDaniel continued to add to his impressive 2014 numbers on Saturday night, racking up 124 yards on four catches against to Eskimos at Commonwealth Stadium, including a crucial 43-yard reception to help squelch any chance of a dramatic Edmonton comeback.
    “It was actually a broken play,” McDaniel said of the aforementioned reception. “Bo (Levi Mitchell) did a good job scrambling, saw me down the field, and threw it up. We definitely needed it and I was happy I was the one to make the play.”

    Calgary Stampeders' Nik Lewis just wants to win, baby, any way he can
    Make no mistake, Nik Lewis isn’t happy hauling in just one football.
    But there’s also little doubt the Calgary Stampeders veteran isn’t happy with having just one Grey Cup championship — way back in 2008 — on his resume, despite multiple opportunities.
    Lewis had just one reception for eight yards during Saturday’s 41-34 CFL victory over the Edmonton Eskimos at Commonwealth Stadium, but the 32-year-old wasn’t without impact.

    Calgary Stampeders' Shawn Lemon's lovin' life
    Shawn Lemon is eating well these days.
    Crab legs, caviar … the finer things in life.
    Oh, and opposing quarterbacks, too.
    The Calgary Stampeders 26-year-old defensive end is playing the best football of his young career right now, and he’s in the midst of four-game sack streak.

    Eskimos Pat Watkins apologizes to Bo Levi Mitchell, fans, CFL, for homophobic slur
    The Edmonton Eskimo and cornerback Pat Watkins issued the following statements regarding the offensive comment made to Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell during Saturday's CFL game.

    Calgary Stampeders' Rich Stubler a chip off the old block
    It’s the people he met that Rich Stubler thinks about when he looks back over his 27-year Canadian Football League coaching career.
    He said working with Ron Lancaster “was a pleasure” and lists Don Matthews, B.C. Lions’ Mike Benevides and Wally Buono among his head coaches, “so a lot of my stops have been good.”
    His favourite, though, was clearly former Toronto Argonauts player and coach Mike (Pinball) Clemons.

    Bo Levi Mitchell has no equal out of starting gate for CFL QBs
    Bo Levi Mitchell of the Calgary Stampeders has won like no other quarterback in Canadian Football League history over his first 13 career starts.
    The 24-year-old, third-year pivot completed 14 of 24 passes for 216 yards and three touchdowns while also scoring on runs of one and 20 yards in Saturday’s 41-34 victory over the Edmonton Eskimos to improve his career-opening record as a starting QB to 12-1.

    Leaping onside-kick catch among Stamps rookie Charbonneau-Campeau’s contributions
    It certainly doesn’t jump off the post-game stats sheet — one kickoff return for zero yards — but it arguably was Simon Charbonneau-Campeau’s most important contribution in the Calgary Stampeders’ victory Saturday night against the Edmonton Eskimos.
    The 6-foot-4 receiver out-jumped them all on the Eskimos’ on-side kick, regaining possession for Calgary with 21 seconds left and enabling the Stamps to hold on to their tenuous 41-34 lead and a sweep of their northern rivals.
