A it says at the end of the article...
Doug Brown, always a hard-hitting [Blue Bomber] defensive lineman and
frequently a hard-hitting columnist, appears Tuesdays in the Free Press.
and has this to say today...
"The moment the [Montreal] Alouettes started signing veteran ringers from the NFL
is the moment I concluded that 2011 was not going to be the year
they began regrouping and retooling for the not-so-immediate future."
Doug's viewpoint that the Alouettes are going for a three-peat is based on somewhat shaky ground,
A longtime big NFL star,[?] 34 year old running back Ahmed Green to replace Avon Colbourne
and a lesser NFL star, 32 year old wideout Jerry Porter, to make up for the loss of Ben Cahoon?
The possibility that injuries could sideline either of these two are a lot greater
because of the amount of pounding they have taken over their years in the NFL.
If Avon Colbourne reads this it sure will provide even more incentive for him to succeed.
