It's Raining QB's

Adam DiMichele (pronounced /d??ma?k?l/) (born July 26, 1985 in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania) is a professional gridiron football quarterback who is currently a free agent. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He played college football at Temple.

DiMichele has also been a member of the Calgary Stampeders.

On September 24th 2009, DiMichele was signed by the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.


No official announcement yet, but it looks like he just had a cup of coffee with the Stamps.

A journeyman benchwarmer who can't even make the PR of another CFL club?

Why oh why oh why, Mike Kelly?

What would you have him do? Sit on his butt and NOT try to find a quarterback? :roll:

Yeah but its cheap and it looks like they are working on solutions :wink:

Wow…for once we agree…

I don’t see the problem…the more guys you try out, the more likely you’ll find one who works out…

Could also be compensation for Arthur, who is now going to have surgery on his foot and will be out for the rest of the season.

The guy was signed on Sept 21 by the Stamps. He went to the same college as Burris and there was an article in the Calgary Sun dated the 23rd in which it said "In fact, Smilin' Hank has been raving about the up-and-coming quarterback for the past couple of years." Then he's released later the same day with no explanation and is immediately signed by Winnipeg. Then it is announced that Jabari Arthur needs surgery and is out for the season. No wonder some are wondering whether DiMichele is compensation for Arthur's injury.

JUST IN......DiMichele has picked up the Kelly offense already and will start this Saturday vs the Argos. Word is he has such a grasp of the offense that he will be calling his own plays

....Arthur not delivered as advertised....= DiMichelle and draft pick :wink: :wink: :wink: ..The future is looking a little better all the time.

No one can say they aren't trying to find suitable candidates for the most important position on the team. Law of averages alone says that one of these guys will prove to be the "one". As I have posted elsewhere, I believe Santos could well be that guy. Gut feeling, good background and good attitude.

Check out the scouting report on Santos

....check-out the picture in the free press of these big dudes (new qbs.)...standing together with Kelly....Mike looks quite pleased with the look of his new pivot men....they on the other hand look very lost.....lol lol....Can't wait to see them in action...in Bramlets case...again.. :thup:

Is it the same “I’m very happy” look Kelly had when he stood beside LeFors, Killian, Randall, Bishop and Richie Williams?

....yes as a matter of fact.....go figure... :lol: :lol:

So now it appears the Blue traded for DiMichele? It was announced on the transactions pages and on TSN (http://tsn.ca/cfl/feature/?id=11505 The Stampeders announced Wednesday the release of import quarterback Adam DiMichele from the practice roster. DiMichele was signed by the team Monday. - Calgary Herald ) that he was released from the PR by the Stamps earlier and then signed by the Blue as a FA. So are we now compensating Calgary with a neg list player for him? Still scratching my head over this one...

....my hunch is Simpson will find his way to the stamps roster and further 'workings' on the trades between the two clubs will transpire...with possibly more coming the BigBlues way.....just my take.. :roll:

I still think he was unofficial compensation for Arthur's injury and when that was suggested (I know I posted that a few times including at the FP website) the teams had to make it look more kosher so they're now saying it was a trade. The story speculates that the future considerations will be a player from the neg list but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be nothing.

Kelly says good chance DiMichele will be at QB sometime late in the 3rd qtr to take over from Bramlet.
