Big QB signing by the Argos

Wow can't believe we didn't sign this guy before them.
He threw for 3,997 yards and 86 touchdowns last season!!! Could be the next Flutie.

Very very unlikely. He has the same agent as other Argo players so that's how they hooked up. He'll be 3rd string this weekend.

An Argo-Cat fan

Those are arena football stats. Teams often score 7-8 TD’s a game or more in the AFL. Remember… the field is only 50 yards long.

Sorry but I don’t agree that this is a “big” signing.

When you're as thin as the Argos are right now at this position, I'd say it is "big", albeit in a different way.

I'm pretty sure mikem was making a sarcastic comment due to the Argo's QB situation at this time. Right?

Also line backers aren't allowed to move when they're in pass coverage or they'll be flagged for an illegal defence lol.

Remember Billy Dicken ???

AFL QB Have Real Hard Time Adjusting to the CFL

???? duh

lol - it was supposed to be a sarcastic post.

lol

Yes, it seems I'm going to have to tell people that I am being sarcastic. 86 TD passes ??? lol

The guy is 6'04 so he is big. But I would put him at the same level as Richie Williams in his development. Both had good small college numbers but are still raw.

And what does that have anything to do with being a good q.b?

Arena football doesn`t come close to the cfl. Has there ever been an arena quarterback starting in the cfl?

mikem; it's ok, I know we missed out on signing him but I am sure someone will suggest we DO sign him when he gets cut next week. I wish there were more people who really did appreciated good sarcasm. :lol:

Don't recall an Arena League QB making it big here, but one sure did in the NFL. 2 time MVP, Super Bowl MVP, Super Bowl champion, Kurt Warner.

Jared Lorenzen, now that would be a truly "big" quarterback signing.

Good point Matelot.

Completely forgot about Warner

loyal, to tell the truth he was the only one I could think of, can't think of any other. Maybe someone else knows.

I dont know either, but Ive never watched arena football. Cant stand football in a hockey arena. Its just not good!!

He's be perfect for that nautical-themed team, since his nickname in college was "Battleship".

HAHA Yes! The only QB in football that could also play on the O or D line :slight_smile:

Heck.. he could be his own Centre
