Reggie Stubblefield on Stopping Oliveira, Defending Against Winnipeg’s Passing Game

1 on 1 interview with Montreal Alouettes linebacker, Reggie Stubblefield. Conducted Saturday at Tim Hortons Field ahead of Grey Cup Sunday.

I asked, I asked Tyrice Beverette a similar question. Watching the tape last week with Brady Oliveira. BC kind of showed how to lose to Winnipeg and how to beat Winnipeg because in the second half, they actually had good run-stopping. What were your takeaways from the film watching that?

“For me, it’s just the fact that Winnipeg is very versatile. They can beat you with the run or through the air, so you have to be ready for everything that they bring to you and that they can throw at you. You have to be disciplined. You have to be sound in your technique in your final minutes. So, felt BC had a chance, but, Winnipeg did what they do, and they finished it off another big game.”

Do you find some encouragement in the fact that Zach Colaros has had 3 straight playoff teams with under 200 passing yards?

“I mean, I don’t care about that because sometimes stats don’t really tell the whole story about things. Maybe he had 200 passing yards because it was rainy that day or it was snowy.

I don’t really know too much about it. So I know, at the end of the day, I just know we gotta play our brand of football tomorrow just to make sure we have our cleats in the grass, and we’re ready for success.”

Has there been any, favorite moment or memory leading up to this week hanging out with your team?

“Just the whole journey in itself. I’ll reflect on it. Embracing the journey’s been a beautiful thing to witness and see, you know, just to go through. So, so many different moments and things I can really say, And I think this one would be the biggest of them all.”

Do you read into Winnipeg’s injury reports, or do you guys just prepare for anyone, and it doesn’t matter what they put on it?

“Yeah. We prepare for everybody on their roster. They have a big team. They’re very talented, so you gotta be prepared and watch film on all those guys. You know. You never know who’s gonna step up in that spotlight and play, so gotta be prepared for everything.”
