    Steinberg's MMQB: A lot of pivotal discussion for a Wednesday
    Pat Steinberg, CFL.ca

    We swear that we’re not taking the easy way out by only talking about quarterbacks in this column. In fact, if you were to go back and look at the last two seasons of this CFL.ca contribution, you will see plenty of talk about every position on the field. It just so happens that the 2013 season has given us nonstop stories at quarterback, and here at the Monday Morning Quarterback just don’t have a choice. We’re also well aware that it’s Wednesday.

    Musical chairs

    Is John Hufnagel really lucky? Or is he really unlucky? It depends on how you look at it. The Head Coach of the Calgary Stampeders has seen his starting quarterback go down with injury this season, and has also seen his pretty darn good backup sidelined as well. That would be the unlucky side of the coin. Having three guys that can step in and win football games would be how to flip that very same coin.

    With number one pivot Drew Tate on the shelf for a third straight week and backup Kevin Glenn sidelined for the first time, the Stamps had no choice but to turn to 23 year old Bo-Levi Mitchell Friday night in Winnipeg. Being situated here in Calgary, I’ve gotten a pretty good look at Mitchell the last couple years and have believed for some time there is something there. A lot of Stamps fans have held that same opinion. But I don’t think any observer of the red and white expected a starting debut quite like the one we saw at Investor’s Group Field.
