Can the Ticats win the Grey Cup without Collaros?


There is no joy in Mudville. The Hamilton 46 are down a man; the most important one, the quarterback.

Now Hamilton had the best team in 2015 WITH Collaros. Grey Cup glory was certainly a strong possibility. But without him? Can they still win it all? The Ticats still have a very good defence and head coach (despite him bumping opposing players). But can they win it all without Collaros?

Discuss and

Vote early and vote often! [/i]

its already been and being discussed in various threads in multiple forums. We don't need this one

This is a poll. It is also a way to have this discussion in one place. Nice and orderly.

Johnny… you’re a loser.

ZC is out for the year and you make this classless poll to mock it.

Seriously man… you need therapy, or better yet, have your internet connection canceled. Your life must truly be sad.

I hope they do Johnny All Bad And Crazy

If nothing else to shut you up.

This is a legitimate poll. Why is it OK to flame Johnny for making a simple poll asking a legitimate question?

because no want wants raw johnny :wink:

I cast my vote for Yes, based on a bit of semantics. Yes, the Cats can still win the Grey Cup. Is it likely? No, not now, at least in my opinion. But stranger things have happened. Calgary won it all in 2001 with a journeyman Marcus Crandell at the controls. The Riders won it in 2007 with Kerry Joseph's only good season as a CFL quarterback. This has been a wild and wacky year so far, so I won't write Hamilton off. Their GC road just got a lot tougher, though.

Yikes... I'm sorry for the awful news Hamilton fans, its not good for the league with star pivots go down. It just isn't good for the game, but this is football, not hockey, not soccer, not anything else... It's next man up because everyone else has injuries somewhere and their next man is contributing. As an Esks fan, we had to witness Matt Nichols bake cupcakes till we traded him. Look where we are... 8-4. (6-4 before Reilly's first start since Week 1). I have faith Hamilton will rally around Matthews now. Do I pick Hamilton as favorites to win it all? No. I would put them 3rd behind Edmonton and Calgary now. (Both teams are almost inseparable for my first choice, but if I had to choose, it would be Edmonton not because of bias, but because our team just looks better... and yeah, maybe a tiny bit of bias haha).

I have faith in Hamilton to make the East final (by bye week or through a 2nd or 3rd place finish) at the least. Looking forward to seeing Collaros back next season, he's top 3 for sure. :thup:

There are two thoughtful posts so far. The rest is a mess. Behave and stay on topic guys! :cowboy:

Collaros top 3 yes, but he was actually on his way to winning MOP this season. He most likely lost that to.

If you want a dig that will stick, don't start with an M.
Start with the letter H. duh
e.g. Hammeroid. Hamlittleton. Halfulliton. Hellyeahiton. Hermitilton. Hitittieston etc.
You are more of a Shemp than Curly, but I am compelled to vote.

Dude, you never heard of the Mudville 9 ? A classic!

They must have had great QB coaching to bring out the best in Joseph that year. Who was the Riders' coach in 2007? If only we had access to that guy.

Or even the guy who coached Damon Allen to his one and only MOP season in 2005.

As it stands, we've got to settle for the guy who helped turn Zach Collaros into the league's best QB in less than two years, and who's been coaching Jeff Mathews since his college days.

Exactly. :wink:

Oh Johnny bedwetter. I truly expected more from you. Very disappointing.

This is what Collaros' injury means to the Ticats 2015 season:

Therapy johnny... therapy.

Dude, stop talking about therapy and go get some! Ask the doctor for some boner pills also. Might calm you down :smiley:

2 of the 3 stooges have posted so far....lmao.
Where's the other one?
