Fletch speaks on the Flick,Smith/Butler trade

First thing I understand the urgency for a proven back up/possible starting QB. Maybe Butler will spark a fire under Maas as he competes for the #1 job. I also like a 2 QB system, although it depends on the personalities of your QB’s and their willingness to accept it. Can they check their egos and remember “team first?? The part I don’t get is way we gave a solid possession receiver in Flick. When it is 2nd&8 be sure the ball will be throw to #82 for the 1st down. Then we move a Canadian #1 draft pick O-lineman, who has a bright future ahead of him. No matter how good your QB is, if you can’t protect him he won’t get the ball away. As far as the draft picks, I feel draft picks are a crap shoot. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose.

Overall I don’t like this trade at all. But it is the CFL after all and we could see these boys return to the Black and Gold sometime soon.
