I didn't know it was Tamans job to Train/teach the young QB's, always thought the Coaches did that.
Taman brings in the Talent and it's up to the Coaches to get them Game ready.
There is two problems:
1.Not enough pre-season games to get those young QB's into games.
2.Not enough time in Practice to get Young Backups time to get CFL ready, Practices + meetings can only be something like 4.5 Hours long, that seems like a Joke for the League Right now considering Players average pay is currently at 88K for the 19 week Season(yes Off-season Training is part of the pay but still)
There should atleast be a rule allowing Coaches to keep(CFL) Rookies/Sophmores around for an extra amount of practice time. During the season.(say an extra hour and 30 mins) that would be monday-thursday, if the coach elects to do it.
These guys are getting atleast 40K(CAD) a year they can do a 30 Hour work week.
and not all 4.5 Hours are on the field that includes team meetings, so these rookies would likely only be getting their on-field practice time in that extra 1.5H unless their a first year guy who is also a starter(so Rookie of the year canditades mainly)
Guys like: Doug Brown, Milt Stegall, Geroy Simon, Dave Dickenson, Ricky Ray, Jeoffrey Reynolds, Henry Burris, Ben Cahoon. They don't need an extra Hour and a half of practice time but Rookies and Sophmores do, guys who aren't established and are still learning the canadian game or are just out of the CIS and need to get their skill level up.
Often in Winnipeg the problem is there is not enough practice reps for the backups so if a backup goes in un-expectedly their Raw and aren't prepared.(Tee Martin is a good example of that)
