last year Mass fit the description of a YOUNG, MOBILE, Strong Armed QB.
Personally, in FOOTBALL terms ... young is UNDER 30.
And, why Glenn. What had he proven before this season?
See, this is where MY FOOTBALL ACUMEN comes in ... I don't NEED a PROVEN STAR on MY team ... I just want the BEST TALENT POSSIBLE ... in my eyes, Glenn, being almost 4 years younger, MUCH more MOBILE, and atleast as STRONG an arm as a wonky Maas ... has MORE UPSIDE from which to BUILD.
Would you also have rather had Marcus Brady?
The ONLY TIME I asked for Brady was the END of last season to SEE what the guy could do ... although I have my doubts about Brady, the fact is he got a bum wrap from Marshall last season.
That's a BIG HELL YA !! Again, a YOUNG, MOBILE, strong (in his case CANNON) - armed QB. Again, just relying on my football experience here ... but Kevin has ALL the TOOLS that ANY COACH would love the opportunity to MOLD.
Hows about Rocky Butler?
Have not seen ENOUGH of this man ... I know he missed a couple easy TD's ....
Did Crandell not WIN a Grey Cup as the starter for Calgary ? Was he NOT the game MVP ? Anyway ... not a star, a capable QB ... a little on the old side from the perspective I am speaking from.
Bottom line is Maas , although not Danny Mac OLD, is the oldest of all the QB's you mentioned and his arm appears to have DECLINED in STRENGTH. The guy is NOT WORTH 350 G's, PERIOD.
And as far as there being NOTHING EXCITING about Richie Williams and Kevin Eakin ... I respectfully DISAGREE. These kids got talent ... and I would like to see it in a GAME before any FINAL judgements are made.
