Please, you guys act like it takes 10 years plus to become a great quarterback in this league. Check out the following great quarterbacks in this league and see that all of them had great first years in the league with no CFL experience; Warren Moon, Doug Flutie, Ricky Ray, Tom Clements and the list goes on and on. After 4 years in the league, DD should have plenty of experience by now and be able to pick defenses apart. Like another poster posted, he has tunnel vision and is unable to see the entire field. I can play safety against this guy and come up with at least two picks per game. He telegraphs every pass at least 2-3 seconds before he throws the ball. He does not show the capability of looking db's off.
Dalton Bell has been in the league for two years and should be given a shot. If you know you are going no where with Durant, then you should be giving reps to Bell and Harrells. Durant and Jyles have been given ample time to develop and they both have shown that they are backups at best in this league. Harrells is perfect for the CFL, he comes from a passing orientated offense in Texas and that fits perfectly for the CFL.
Riders will lose to Calgary this weekend and it won't be pretty. Durant will be QB and will stink. Jyles will come in at half time way too late and be marginally better but the Riders will lose by 20 points. The following week against BC will not be much better, it is going to be a slow painful season with DD, Jyles and Miller. Miller can still salvage some respect in my books by giving the two young QB's a shot this year. Harrells is special, you should see this kid play.
We shall see what unfolds,
