When it comes to the Calgary Stampeders, let's get one thing out of the way ...

Jon Cornish, barring injury, will be Jon Cornish — Most Outstanding.

But after that, has any team that ran up a 14-4 record — before bowing out in the West Division final to the hated, and eventual Grey Cup-champion Saskatchewan Roughriders — ever had as many question marks as the 2014 edition of the Stampeders?

It all starts with the men spinning the pigskin.

After being anointed by Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel as the undisputed starter last off-season, Drew Tate got hurt — again — and wasn't a factor after coming up with a sore throwing arm in Week 2.

There was no chance of a starter being named this off-season, and Hufnagel has stated Tate and 24-year-old Bo Levi Mitchell will wage all out war during training camp for the keys to offensive co-ordinator and head-coach-in-waiting Dave Dickenson's offence.

That's just the start.
