EDMONTON -- Dwight Anderson is the resident trash talker for the Calgary Stampeders, but in Week 1, JoJuan Armour took over the controls.

Armour pestered his former teammate Otis Floyd during a 28-18 win at McMahon Stadium, then broke up the B.C. Lions linebacker's post-game interviews.

All in good fun, Armour says. The linebacker leaves the heavy talk to cornerback Anderson, who he teamed with last year in Hamilton.

Before the season started, Stampeders receiver Nik Lewis said on QR77's preview show Anderson was the biggest trash talker he faced in the CFL.

Nothing has changed since Anderson joined the Stamps, and he is ready to take the crown back from Armour.

"I like to play the game and have fun, which means I'm talking a lot," Anderson said. "If you talk, you have to back it up though.

"I guess Nik said that because we went at it hard last year. But if you can't take the heat, get out of my kitchen."

Stamps recognized

Stamps quarterback Henry Burris and defensive lineman Miguel Robede were recognized as runner-ups in the weekly CFL awards.

Burris received an honourable mention for offensive player of the week, which was given to Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo.

Robede was a runner-up for top Canadian, which went to Argos linebacker Mike O'Shea. Argos defensive back Willie Middlebrooks was defensive player of the week.

EXTRA POINTS

There is usually some fisticuffs in the Battle of Alberta, but the Eskimos have guaranteed it. The club has scheduled a tag-team wrestling match for the halftime show tonight when they face the Stamps at Commonwealth Stadium ... The Eskimos are riding a seven-game losing streak dating back to last season, which is the longest such run the franchise has had since 1971 (eight games).
