Does Timmy Chang have any market value?

If he does, I say trade him ASAP before he loses it. The guy is always being sacked or picked, and has no place with us. If anyone is stupid enough to want him, I say take him! The guy gets sacked when he gets out of bed, and if we can even get a 13th round draft pick for him i say do it. If not, i say he's cut in camp.

Not giving Chang much of a chance here.. Too early to tell, but he will not get canned unless we get someone whom Obie & Charlie thinks is better....

Do you know of a 3rd-stringer out there who is currently better than Timmy? If not, then he stays..
.
The Eagle :cowboy: :cowboy: :cowboy:

Scout Tracy Ham is working on it.

If Timmy wsa getting sacked, then that is a problem with either the O-line or a QB with little professional experience.

As for getting picked, he may have been trying too hard to make something good happen (this is a lack of experience issue)

Given more time to mature, he'll be a great QB in the CFL.

Go Timmy :rockin:

Chang is about four years away. So this means the Ticats will trade or release him in 3 years. 8)

do not trade Timmy Chang.

wayy to much potential

he is the ALL-TIME NCAA PASSING LEADER

u don't do that on a fluke

and you don't just suddenly lose that kind of skill either.

Give him some time and he will eventually be a great Qb in this league

he also had as many picks or touch down's......

Timmy Chang is the man. Are you kidding?Trade him? Look at BC. They are a team that realizes that you are only as strong as your first, second and third stringers. When Printers goes down (and he will go down) you need two strong QBs to step up. Why trade him when his value is low? I say extend him at a bargin basement price. This kid is going to be better than Printers.

His college credentials are way too good to give up on him so fast. Why would you cut a guy after his rookie season playing for a 3-15 team?

An Argo-Cat fan

the guy was mediocre in NFL Europe, cut from the Eagles, drafted in the 7th round, the guy has previous experience elsewhere, he is just horrible. obviously when you throw as much as Hawai does your bound to have alot of touch down’s, I mean look at Colt Brennan, I’m pretty sure he’s broken Chang’s records, and guess what, he did it without the picks.

You keep him into training camp at the very least. By all means bring in a couple new guys, but you must develop a QB, and, when you are hopefully winning a few games, get him in for some real time reps.

The other responders are correct...Wpg found out to their cost what happens when you are a one gun team! Likewise Edmonton when RR went down...

Trade value? Yes! Enormous.

But I doubt we have anyone ready to step in as #3, because CP is way too injury prone, and if RW takes a hit and needs a break, who are you planning on sending out?

Likewise, Chang needs to be needed, and have his loyalty to this club built up...

LOL.. and WHAT do you base that statement on?..

Reminds me of another young QB some Ti-Cat fans chased out of town.

His initials are A.C. and you will see him in the CFL hall of fame one day.

Have To agree he no is better then Kevin Eakin at this point
since Kevin is gone he get the 3rd Spot by Default
Mind you Chang has chance to get better

Printers and Williams are 1 and 2

IMo any over 60% passing would be better than Chang= All Know the rules , the passing lanes etc

I would rather see the third string QB position be used to develop a Canadian. Chang has a long way to go. Invite him back to training camp along with some good Canadian prospects and take it from there.

Why there are no good Canadian q.b's. Charlie poured a gallon of gasoline on Timmy's head and threw him into the fire in his first start and totally crushed his confidence. I think he will probably come back and have a strong camp and win the second spot like he did last year. Initially I liked Williams but as the he got more reps he showed that he has a long ways to go as far as reading defences goes and must have a lot of tendencies that defences figured out, or maybe a lot of it had to do with Charlies pathetic play calling.

Chang @#&- there are Many CIS Q,s who are just as Good as a Claremont or Fantoos(sp)-etc

And we are back on the whole CIS QB thing.

The reason there aren't any decent CIS QB's is because if they had great arm strength and/or great physical ability chances are they would have been recruited to the NCAA with it's 120+ division 1-A schools, not to mention the 1-AA and D-2 schools. And I don't think we can even discuss the level of competition between the NCAA and CIS.

And if by chance a Canadian quarterback slipped between the cracks and are playing exceptionally well in the CIS, how many could their possibly be that are good enough to play against mature, paid, professional athetes that comprise the defenses of the CFL?

What? Probably one ever decade?

If you start giving roster spots just for charity, then the league's credibility takes a bit of a hit. It is not like you can teach a Canadian quaterback to be taller or faster or suddenly increase his football IQ by having him run scout team from Tuesday to Friday. If he is good enough to make the a team he should make it on the value of his skill, not his position or his passport.

But that is just my opinion! And I love Canada and Canadians!

  • paul

ps. I am indifferent to Timmy Chang. I say trade him if you can get good value for him. If not, then let him compete for the #3 spot in camp again.

re Pualy-your post is total B.C.- there are many talented CIS players, who aren't recruited by your so haughty ncaa.( Im not saying ncaa isnt good football) they do well in cfl, at ALL other positions. AND YES it is the CIS Canadian QB "thing" again it will never go away. your post is totally based on some weird preprogrammed logic , snap out of it man.
