The only team that Zac should play for in 2018, is us.
Finally someone I agree with.
     I've said this many times too in different threads.  If he had a strong offensive line like Masoli did the second half of the season, Zach would perform better than JM.

Zack does not have any running ability that is needed to keep the defence honest. Hervey can initiate a trade, however it is highly unlikely considering someone mentioned he does not get along with Tillman. There is a reason Zack stood on the sidelines for the second half of the season.

I agree 100% with you. It's too bad that only a few can see this. Wait until they trade or release
him and see what a mess we will be in.

Agreed with all above. He needs a shot.

That said,  sometimes people really do need a change of scenery.  I have no doubt that if he ends up on another team,  he'll light it up. People will claim we should have kept him, but if that does happen,  it's no guarantee that it would have happened here. 

That's why we need to try him out.  He should start in preseason if he's still here.

3 of the 5 OLineman in the middle were the same all season. Xavier Fulton was at one tackle spot to start the season. Not bad. The OLine started to look better when the QB was not predictably always in the same spot in the pocket. DLines could no longer just pin their ears back when Masoli was under centre.

Yeah. Too bad he wasn't highly mobile and elusive like Ricky Ray

Sorry but I disagree with your assessment of the O line.  Until about game 10 or 11  the tackles used we like turnstiles.  Always being beaten by defenders rushes and Zack was always in fear of being blindsided.  If the tackles don’t perform, then passing and run blocking are an absolute disaster regardless of the QB mobility.  As some have posted....McManus...Ray...Mitchell...Cavillo...on and on....not very mobile and successful.  We had to have a “running for your life” QB for a chance to be in it. Then we found two starters in Mathews and Washington who were great.  Opened up running and passing options.   
Zack would likely have excelled with the current system, O line and receiving corps.  
I’m hoping he stays even at his $$.  
The decision is going to be based not on talent but freeing up a huge chunk of cash for other signings because Masoli is a serviceable QB...not a marquee star.  
If Johnny Nutcase is signed for the CFL minimum, then let him compete. If not ...trade his rights and get something substantial in return.

Is Washington really great or did he look good because he was blocking for a mobile QB?
Dude was released mid season for performance based reasons in Edmonton and picked up off waivers.

You build your team around the offensive line. Zack did not have the benefit of a solid offensive line at the start of the season thanks to Kent Austin. Weak tackles, no run game and an old and very predictable playbook. Watch how quickly Hervey turns around the Lions. 

SilverSurfer

BC, MTL, Sask might have more interest in Masoli as a free agent especially after his past performance this year and past? Masoli is the "Russell Wilson" of the CFL and his ability to scramble and move the pocket, rush and pass make his style of play more adaptable to any club in the CFL looking for a good QB!

HfxTC

I think BC, MTL, TOR and possibly OTT will have serious interest in Zach
They may have more interest in Free agent Masoli.

Ricky Ray doesn't need to run too often because the Arblows have a much better offensive line and running back than the Tiger Cats. Ricky Ray is a much more accurate passer than any Tiger Cat passer. June Jones offence is the run and shoot. Mark Trestman runs a spread offence. You are comparing apples and oranges.

So what you are saying that Collaros fits in perfectly with Trestman's offence.
And we should let Collaros go to the Arblows so they can continue to win GC's for the next 5 years etc.
That's such a Great Idea!! Why didn't I think of that.

schmenger

I don't recall saying that. If Collaros can scramble and move around in the pocket like he did prior in injury he should be able to run June Jones offence. However, if you read between the lines Collaros may not be emotionally and mentally prepared to play for Jones. Collaros had one offensive game series after an 0 and 8 start. Masoli is mobile who can run RPO and the zone read run. Collaros to the best of my knowledge can not run either.

     Then they can take Masoli and we'll keep Collaros.
