This was to finally be Adrian's day. As a free agent next season, he was no doubt hoping to demonstrate to other teams in the CFL that he is ready to step into a starting role with one of them, and the GMs would, in turn, have the opportunity to evaluate a QB who has not started a game this season. Adrian flunked the test ! In the first quarter he passed and ran the team down field for 3 points and, led the team to a touchdown but, there after, he was not impressive. Adrian did demonstrate that he is a powerful runner but, other that a few screens and short passes I doubt his performance impressed the GMs and coaches of teams that are presently searching for QB material. In fairness to Adrian, one of the commentators described him as " trying to run a Calvillo offense ".
I believe the years warming the bench diminished his skills as he was not the quarterback that was so appealing in his first two years with the team. He did throw some screens and some short passes but, was not effective with long throws although Richardson did drop one pass that landed in his hands. After taking the snap and attempting to throw deeper, it appeared he was having a problem locating his receivers and, more often than not, those passing plays were turned into an Arian rush. We have to wonder where Adrian will play next year, as I'm certain those scouts might have doubts after today's game.
For the Als, Jennings is looking very good in both the run and receiving. I noticed that Matte and, other back up players received an opportunity to play. For the first time Whyte was able to push a couple of kick returners out of bounds and there were some good efforts on defense. I bet that Calvillo will be taking all the reps in preparing for the East final.
