I wouldn’t call him ‘Jesus’ just yet. Wait until he runs for a touchdown across water.
If not even better than average
Yeah, the defence does not look the same with Dalke out. Plus it looked to me like there were a lot of guys playing with injuries.
That and when the leaves start to change color, you better show up at the ball park with a run game…
Just hope he can keep it up.
He reminds me of CFL Great Damon Allen who played lights out football for two decades eventually shattering Warren Moon’s record (70,553 yards) to become professional football’s all-time passing leader. Then there’s that added bonus… he’s a ratio breaker just like Nathan Rourke. Even if he only lasts half as long as Allen I see nothing but upside for young Tre Ford.
Yeah, he does somewhat. What he really has is a love of winning, enthusiasm and leadership. That “lets go win” thing that all good QB’s have.
I recall the game where he came in and should won. The elk lost but just barely.Every player on O and the D sides of the ball were coming up to him showing respect at the end of the game . I posted then he was going to not only start but turn the fortunes around.
As for thos saying he should have been the starter from the start of the season. Well the rest of the team was not near enough ready for prime time back then were they. Putting a rookie in when he will be destroyed from within is not good for the rookie . Just be glad the Elk now have a QB.
Hopefully Jones sees this and is able to give this leader the monetary insentives and does something contract wise to keep this guy long term
His Canadian status, like Rourke’s, is good for the league a whole. It breaks the perception that guys are only on the roster because they have to be.
The CFL should find a way to market this guy as much as possible.
Bienvenue Chez Ford. Très Ford.
Well, you need that guy - not just a good QB but a team leader. A guy who says “I’m going out to win a ball game - are you coming?”
And its all one team on the field - everyone playing their best to try to win. And that shows…
Unfortunately for Redblack fans Dyce still doesn’t get the monumental boneheaded decision he made in attempting a field goal which cost his team an almost certain victory. I like Winnipegger Dyce and thought he was a decent coach but I never like coaches and/or players not owning up to their mistakes. It builds a bad team vibe if no one is responsible when things go wrong, among other difficulties. Usually a coach will throw himself on his sword for the players even if it wasn’t his mistake, but refusing to take responsibility when it is solely your mistake?
When you’ve lost seven in a row this seems a bit like arrogance, something I wouldn’t expect from Dyce. Jones maybe, but Dyce?
There is always a silver lining beneath a darkened cloud.
If Dyce had not made that
decision I would not have been able to create my new topic thread, " CFL Epic Endings" and put that golden reception by Whitehead at the top of the list. Life is good.
