I am one (of many) that are very disappointed that Joe Montford was allowed to sign anywhere else but here. To this point our defensive rush has been inept from the line. Look at where we stand in QB Sacks. Tied for 8th spot, I believe. If you look at who has gotten the sacks, I think that out 3 QB sacks at least one is from the backfield.
If Joe is washed up as you and otheres have tried to point out then, that fact could have and should have been proven here. I doubt very much that he would have failed. If he did then he could have been cut and the hordes of us who wanted him back here would have had to swallow the fact that he couldn't operate at a high level anymore.
I am in full agreement with Joe that he should have expected a call from the Wussy Cats that sport another impressive perfect record. He offered to take a major paycut and now has resigned with Edmonton. I expect that his signing will come back and bite us in the arse when we play the Esks.
You lament the lost of Tony Miles but with the Baresi offence of the last few years chances are that he wouldn't have had the opportunity to do what he has done in Toronto and as I said once before with the current offense averaging just 6-7 yards per throw that means that our average reciever needs 142-166 completions this year just to break 1000 yards.
As for your complaining about his whining to the press now, he is fully justified in doing so when you see how toothless the Cats have been. Perhaps with a bit more age and wisdom you will learn that football has many facets to it. He wanted back, was willing to take a major pay cut, we have injuries that he could have helped cover and then once all are healthy they could have spelled the other DEs off to keep all three fresher for the 2nd half where we are getting blown out.
Or perhaps you are an armchair QB that has never been involved in competitive sports to realize that for a person to succeed at a high level (as Joe has done in this league) it is highly dependant upon heart, soul and desire. Had Hamilton come calling he would have given that heart and soul to the TigerCats.
My very disappointed 2 cents worth. Heck after tonight we will be 1/2 way to our perfect 1/2 season of last year.
Looking at my bottom line now, it looks like it may be time to check out what we came, we saw, we surrendered is :<(((
