Glenn wants to return as Stamps' QB

  • Print

CALGARY -- Kevin Glenn would like nothing more than to have another shot at winning a Grey Cup.

Whether that's with the Calgary Stampeders or not remains to be seen, but the 12-year Canadian Football League veteran believes he still has what it takes to be a starting quarterback in the CFL.

"I would be lying if I didn't say that I think that I'm a starting quarterback in this league," Glenn said. "I think I am. If you're a quarterback and you don't think that, then something's wrong."

Just two days after the Stampeders lost 35-22 to the host Toronto Argonauts in the 100th Grey Cup, Glenn spoke to the media at McMahon Stadium.

"It's been tough, just going back and trying to figure out where it went wrong and how come we're not celebrating as Grey Cup champs right now," he said. "You've got to give Toronto credit and they were better than us on that day. We couldn't get into a rhythm. When we did put drives together, we came out with three points instead of seven."

With Drew Tate out of the lineup with a fractured bone in his right arm, Glenn guided the Stamps to a 34-29 road win over the defending Grey Cup champion B.C. Lions in the West final on Nov. 18.

After throwing three touchdown passes against the Lions, Glenn couldn't duplicate that feat on the CFL's biggest stage against the Argos.

"I don't think that takes anything away from the season that we had and us getting to that point," said Glenn, who completed 14 of 27 passes for 222 yards, no touchdowns and one interception against the Argos. "We've just got to come back stronger, tougher and fight for it again next year."

Still under contract with the Stamps, Glenn said he's expecting to return to Calgary next season. "At this point, I leave as a Calgary Stampeder and hopefully come back as a Calgary Stampeder," he said. "If not, then that's just the way the business rolls."

Calgary head coach and general manager John Hufnagel is also counting on Glenn to be back in the fold next year.

"Right now, he's under contract to come back and I expect Kevin to be at training camp," Hufnagel said. "A lot of things can happen, but I have no preconceived thoughts of him being anywhere else except a Stampeder."

Tate also has no qualms with Glenn returning next season.

"I hope he is back," said Tate, who missed the majority of the regular season after dislocating his left shoulder during the second game of the season in Toronto against the Argos. "I hope everyone on this team is back."
