CALGARY - Taking advice from a man with 15 sacks in his past 21 outings is never a bad thing.
So what pointers does Calgary Stampeders sack-artist Charleston Hughes — who GM/head coach John Hufnagel was “not real optimistic” about suiting up in Friday’s game — have for his pass-rushing brethren on what to do with Blue Bombers sophomore quarterback Justin Goltz in Winnipeg?
“Oh, please, please get him on the ground,” said Hughes, who shed the cast on his right wrist Tuesday but didn’t take part in practice. “It’s going to be too easy. It’s going to be too easy to get him.
“There’s sacks waiting to happen.”
While the 25-year-old Goltz hasn’t officially been named the starter for the tilt at Investors Group Field on Friday (6 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770) — Bombers QB Buck Pierce continues to deal with an abdominal bruise suffered in Week 4 against the Toronto Argonauts — Shawn Lemon isn’t sure it really matters.
