I'm never quite sure if I like Cam Cole or not. Always seems kind of negative. Today in the National Post there's an article by him about the rash of QBs getting hurt in the CFL this year. The story goes on to quote Wally about the quality of Canadian O-linemen vs. that of the American D-linemen and what a mismatch it's become at those positions.
Really? To me, this has the feel of an old story. Seems like ever since I've been a fan (more than 50 years) someone has always made unfavourable comparisons. American receivers are too fast for Canadian D-backs; the American running backs are unstoppable; the linebackers from the US are going to kill the lesser Canadian receivers and on and on.
To me, the relative strength or weaknesses of certain aspects of the game is a cyclical thing, and the wheel always turns.
What really bothers me is Wally is chiming in here in support of Cam Cole's theory. Does he actually believe what he's saying or maybe it's a bit of sour grapes from Buono because his own O-line has been especially wanting of late.[url=http://news.nationalpost.com/sports/cfl/cfls-quarterback-casualties-mount-as-homegrown-players-are-being-outmatched-by-american-talent]http://news.nationalpost.com/sports/cfl ... can-talent[/url]
