Tate injured his shoulder in the Stampeders’ loss to the Toronto Argonauts on July 7 at Toronto’s Rogers Centre.
When most teams lose their top quarterback, there is some genuine reason for concern, however Stampeders General Manager John Hufnagel needs to be given some credit for acquiring Kevin Glenn from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the offseason to solidify the spot in case of moments just like these.
At 1-2 the Stampeders season is far from lost. Despite losing two games, Glenn has thrown 44 passes in 58 attempts for 478 yards. He has shown great confidence in the most important position in football.
The reason why the Stampeders are under .500 is because of their defense, not their offense.
The season can still be salvaged and that doesn’t always happen to teams that lose their number one quarterback.
