Lets see, WPG lost today, if the Esks win today and beat SASK next week, and if WPG looses next week to Calgary, that means the ESKS could end up in 2nd place with a home date for the playoff game, is this correct?
Reilly seems to be a "glutton for punishment" as the saying goes but as mentioned at half time (not paying enough attention to know who said it) that could well shorten his career. Buck Pierce comes to mind as a QB who took a lot of punishment and didn't play for long - but then he had more time lost to injury too.
Stamps look like they left their horses at home. Last week at home, I guess they forgot to let them out of the barn! Is it even possible that the "mighty" Stamps lose TWO games in a row!!! :o :o :o :o :o :o
Buck Pierce's career would have been even shorter if he played to avoid injury. Buck was atrocious at reading defenses (still is) and only by taking off like a gazelle did he manage to carve out a minor career as a CFL QB w/ no real accomplishments.
Khari Jones was mentioned by Stegall as a guy who eventually got totalled cuz he held onto the ball til the last possible moment and got creamed.
Dunigan took a massive amount of whoppers, thus ending his career with concussions before there was protocol.
Kevin Glenn has taken a ton of hits during his 16 or 17 yr career but he's short and compact - lots of the hits were bumps rather than knee or head-kills.
Other QBs who ended their CFL careers prematurely - most due to wear 'n tear. . . . . Ken Ploen, Joe Zuger, Russ Jackson, Ron Lancaster, Tom Burgess. . . . . some of these guys hall-of-famers to be sure!
