Now, on topic, the team with the greatest need at QB appears to be Toronto.
Bishop remains an unproven quantity and at 30+ that shouldn't still be an issue. Hopefully Rocky Butler can still get better. Looks like Allan may be back, but that seems a questionable decision.
In Montreal, AC may still have a couple of years left in him, but the edges of his game are beginning to fray.
Brady is a never was, and Maas is a has been, so they need back-up help and soon.
Hamilton? Well Printers might be brilliant.
Or he might be a bust.
That remains to be seen.
But if he isn't the answer, I believe Richie Williams showed plenty of promise last year.
Winnipeg has the best QB in the East, and if he can avoid freak injuries, his best years remain in front of him.
Dinwiddie wasn't exactly heroic in the Grey Cup, but given the situation, he played well and if he takes that experience and learns from it, he will only get better.
In the West, Calgary will stick with Burris.
Despite his inconsistancy, he remains arguably the most physically gifted QB in the league.
At his age, he still has a few of his best years left to try and get the job done. At back-up, they are lacking, though perhaps Sankey can fill the gap while they develop number 3 and 4.
Edmonton simply has the best QB in the league--assuming a full recovery is made from the injury. The good news about RR getting hurt last year was both Lefors and Jyles got playing time, and both showed some potential.
QB is not the problem in Edmonton.
BC by letting Dickenson go likely has the biggest question mark in the West. Can JJ prove he is a bonafide starter?
Can Buck prove he is not made of glass?
BC has gone from being the envy of the league for their depth at QB, to potentially a big problem next year.
The Riders will obviously ride the diverse talents of Kerry Joseph again in 2008. Though he is aging, people forget he has less game experience than most other QBs in the league that are younger than him, and he showed he is still getting better.
The reace for him is between old age and experience.
Plus he must remain healthy to be successful. If KJ loses a step, it definately takes his game down a notch. For the Riders, the big question mark is dothey keep Crandell for another season, or is now the time to cut him loose and promote Durant and Tate, and bring in another youngster to learn the system.
The biggest wildcard is Dave Dickenson.
If healthy, he is still one of the best in the league.
But is he healthy?
And who will be willing to take that gamble?
Toronto seems the most likely landing spot, and maybe Montreal.
It would be ironic if he ended up in Hamilton.
Winnipeg might be interested.
I doubt BC will look backwards, and I don't see him as either a Rider or an Esk.
But stranger things have happened.
