CFL - Legends - cfl.ca - excerpt

On March 23, 1992, Flutie signed with the Calgary Stampeders as a free agent and would go on to lead the Stampeders to their third Grey Cup Championship with an MVP performance in a 24-10 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. In the game, Doug completed 33 of 49 pass attempts for 480 yards and 2 touchdowns. It was Calgary's first Grey Cup Championship since 1971. He was named the Most Outstanding Player after the season for the second year in a row.

In 1993 and 1994 Doug had two more great seasons, earning the Most Outstanding Player Award after each season. Doug's amazing athleticism was not only displayed through the air, but on the ground as well. In fact in 1993, he tied for the CFL lead in rushing touchdowns with 11. He also eclipsed the 6,000-yard passing mark for the second time in his career. In 1994, Doug passed for a CFL record 48 touchdowns, completing the greatest statistical season in professional quarterbacking history as he would also rush for a career high 760 yards on only 96 attempts for a staggering 7.9 yards per carry average.

Doug's 1995 season proved to be the most difficult of his CFL career, as he was side- lined for 7-games with an elbow injury. He returned to action and led the Stampeders to the Grey Cup game only to lose to the Baltimore Stallions, the first and only time the Grey Cup championship would be presented to a US based team. Following a contract dispute with the Stampeders ownership, Doug joined the Toronto Argonauts on March 15, 1996.

However, there were some who still questioned Fluties ability and talent, focusing on the Stampeders receiving corps widely regarded as the best in the CFL with the likes of Allen Pitts, Vince Danielsen and Dave Sapunjis.
