If my aunt had a d.... oh wait... family site... right...
point is, Kerry Joseph has never won anything, isn't all that young either, and is 3-3 in saskatchewan with an arguably better Oline and possibly better receivers and supposedly a better defense and running game.
From where I sit I would say 3-3 is a heck of a lot better than 1-6. In the CFL a team is only as good as it's QB and our record reflects it. In the NFL you can win without a QB - Baltimore won a Superbowl without one - but you cannot do it in the CFL.
Speaking of someone that was an Ottawa Renegades Season ticket holder...NO!!! We would not have been better off. He panicks under pressure and was on the whole frustrating to watch. I do not know if that was just a product of the Paopao offensive system but I am very happy he is not in Hamilton.
All that matters is results. Saskatchewan with Joseph will make the playoffs and once you make the playoffs in the CFL anything can happen. Hamilton with Maas will not make the playoffs. Mark this column for future reference.
So are we judging this on who wins, or who has better stats? because if the riders win despite Joseph, and Maas goes 22-34 for 389 yards and loses a heartbreaker because of crap special teams, or a weak run defense, are you still going to claim victory?
(for the record, i said “after we play the riders” because it was deeper in the season and figured it would even out the records by then)
In the end nothing else matters but what team gets the W. However, KJ will win the QB battle and the Riders will win the game. The game won't be close but if for some strange reason it is and Maas plays well I will give him his dues for doing so. But that isn't going to happen anyways.
