The big play lives within Larry Taylor.
He goes to bed dreaming about it and wakes up craving it.
But so far this season, they’ve been few and far between for the Calgary Stampeders 5-foot-6 return dynamo.
Don’t fret, though. The 28-year-old isn’t worried.
“It’s about that time for me to break loose — give the stadium some electricity on Saturday,” said Taylor about the tilt against the visiting Montreal Alouettes at McMahon Stadium (5 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770). “That’s what I enjoy doing, and that’s what we’re capable of doing on special teams. Hopefully, we can get back to that sooner than later.”
It’s not like the return game has been stagnant — it’s just not as electric as many who have watched Taylor over the years are used to.
Taylor is still third in the CFL in combined return yards with 380, trailing Hamilton Tiger-Cats rookie Lindsey Lamar (434 yards) and Saskatchewan Roughriders third-year man Jock Sanders (404 yards).
