Have to agree with others on this thread re: Masoli and Evans. The Ti-Cats would have to be insane to let either of them walk. Although I would love to see one or both of them in Ottawa!
Both are, in my opinion, two of the best underrated QBs in the league. Solid, front-line, hardscrabble trench-fighters. And to echo what others have already said, this year has been a stark demonstration of the need to have two good QBs on deck.
QBs aside, what I saw last night was a very strong, confident, solid team all playing as one. As a Redblacks fan, so used to disappointment this season, it very satisfying to see my # 2 team doing so well and on their way to the Championship. The Great Eastern Hope as I like to call them. No, I have not switched sides. Still a Redblacks fan and will take their side against all comers, but this year, for us, is a bust.
And…full disclosure, I do get a bit of schadenfreude from last night’s game, given that my Redblacks lost some of their key players to Edmonton and seeing that it has apparently not done Edmonton a whole lot of good. Yes, I admit that my sentiments are selfish, juvenile, mean-spirited etc. etc. But sometimes being a die-hard sports fan engenders such base sentiments in an otherwise reasonable man.
Good on ya Steeltown. Maybe this year is your turn. I’ll be in Calgary cheering you guys on.
