Remember the last time Ottawa started TWO rookie QB's? It was 1975.

Their names were Condredge Holloway and Tom Clements. :grin:

Yeah. A couple of 'no names'... unless history repeats itself and they light it up. :crazy_face:

OTT had veteran QB Jerry Keeling as safety net. Red Blacks have no such luxury.

Yes but didn't they trade Keeling to us one game into that '75' season ?

OMG. Another parallel. Jerry Keeling was a DB who was pressed into service as a QB.
Last week Ottawa sent a receiver to do a man's job. Sooo close! :grin:

And on that rainy night let the records and history books show that the Nate Behar legend had begun .

Yeah you never know. These guys have zero expectations and no real pressure on them at this point. Everyone is expecting the Redblack offence to continue being a disaster. Maybe one of these guys develops some chemistry with one of the receivers and they start putting some points on the board. They can’t get any worse than what we’ve seen, could they?

This guys parents must have been fans of the original Planet of the Apes.

Taylor played by Charlton Heston. Cornelius played by Roddy McDowall.

I wonder if the over/under on this game will reach double digits ?

If you were a football fan in 1975, you definitely knew all about Clements(Notre Dame) and Holloway(Tenn) . Red O'Quinn was a great recruiter as well as a top tight end for the Als back in the 50s .

Pat Lynch (the old guy)

Well according to this story in 3DN the last team who actually dressed QB's with zero experience was way back in 1994 . Some team called the Posse had some kid named Calvillo backed up by some guy named Williams . Apparently this Calvillo kid went on to have a pretty decent career playing football . As for the other guy named Williams ? not so much .

At the start of the game, the two most experienced passers on the OTT roster will be punter Leone and receiver Behar, each of whom has thrown (and completed) one pass in 2021.

So if you go strictly by stats then it looks like Ottawa has got the best QB tandem in the league . Now all they have to do is find a new punter and a new receiver and they'll be no stopping them . :rofl:
