Last week I wrote about Quinton Porter being saturated and overloaded mentally which in turn limits his capabilities physically. I have praised Marcel Bellefeuille many times in this weekly column for his steadfastness in staying the course with his young quarterback Porter, but the way they handled, check that, mishandled him last week was potentially disastrous.
The Calgary Stampeders defensive coordinator Chris Jones was bringing the heat for much of the second half and the Ticats had no answer for the second half pressure. If they say they did and it was just a matter of execution, then why didn't they have their more experienced quarterback in the game executing at those critical moments?
Clearly, Porter was and has been flustered, in over his head and not able to handle the schemes, as of late. Heck the kid even admitted to not knowing where to go with the football on the third down play with the game on the line. Why on earth would they have called a play that their young inexperienced quarterback has no idea how to execute? Or why didn't anyone know that the he was drowning in confusion?
That's three weeks in-a-row that Quiton Porter has looked lost. Hello!
Time to play Kevin Glenn, giving the team the best chance to win down the stretch. Let the young promising quarterback Porter develop in a backup role and catch up mentally so perhaps one day we can see his true physical skills.
Winnipeg is coming to town and chomping at the bit for a share of second place. Opportunities for the Ticats Cinderella Season are diminishing and it's time to move to the 9 year vet to lead this team for the foreseeable future.
I agree 100% with his view on Porter he hasn't looked like a starter once this season and looks even more lost then game 1. I ask what has he done at this point to show he isn't lost and is the future. Outside of the typical he has won more etc and is our future. He clearly isn't learning and getting better
