Heading into their regular season finale in Edmonton on Friday night, the Calgary Stampeders know where they’ll be the following week.
Regardless of the result at Commonwealth Stadium, the Stamps will be the host team in the Western Semi-Final on Nov.11.
While it seems like the Stamps have it all figured out, there’s still a matter of who will be under centre when they face off against a yet-to-be-determined opponent at McMahon Stadium.
The Stampeders will start Drew Tate at quarterback for the first half, while Kevin Glenn will take over the in the second.
And, if possible, they will give third string quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell some work.
After all is said and done, the Calgary coaching staff will sit down and distill all the results, with the intention of naming a starting QB for the playoffs. If you’re one who is low on patience, then you’re in luck. General Manager and Head Coach John Hufnagel said he will make the announcement regarding Calgary’s main man under centre on Tuesday morning.
There are plenty of factors for Hufnagel to consider as he makes his choice.
