You Chang supporters probably salivated more
than you do when you cut into a juicy steak
when you read this part of Steve's article
'Maas' recent history against the Argos,
dating back 52 weeks,
should absolutely seal
the decision for a change.
You'll recall that
late in the second quarter
of July's home opener
against the Cats' bitter rivals,
Chang took over from the struggling starter
and stayed at the helm until Richie Williams
was paid a courtesy call in the dying moments.
Chang completed his first three passes,
then threw an interception
and wasn't much of a threat thereafter.
In last year's back-to-back matches,
both of which were won by the Argos,
Maas played all but the late stages
of the Labour Day massacre.
The result was a grand total
of 15 points over two games,
all on field goals.
So, in the past calendar year,
Maas has played 21/2 games against Toronto,
thrown 61 passes, completed only 29,
and had eight intercepted.
He has generated no touchdown passes,
nor touchdowns of any kind.
All 15 points the offence has mustered
while he was at the helm
against a tough Toronto defence
came off field goals.
There is no evidence yet that Chang
can be the guy to lead this offence
out of the desert and onto some kind of oasis.
But there is plenty of evidence
that Maas hasn't done it against Toronto.'
This makes sense in a morbid sort of way.
It sure will perk up interest.
On second thought, maybe for Timmy's sake
Charlie should start Richie Williams.
