Si Crompton n'était pas un bon quart-arrière, il demeure qu'il est le dernier quart des Alouettes à avoir permis une fiche gagnante pendant sa carrière ici. On sait tous que la défensive était au cœur de ces victoires, mais il a tout de même su rallier l'équipe autour d'une attaque somme toute rudimentaire. Il était un peu teflon, imprécis et peu studieux de ses possibilités pendant les parties, mais il avait un bon leadership et en faisait juste assez pour amener l'équipe à gagner.
Je garde comme souvenir de lui qu'il a été un bon coéquipier qui amenait une attitude positive. J'espère que la suite des choses sera heureuse pour lui.
THAT is what I expected.
To be trite, the problem with Crompton is that he is what he is ......... which is talented enough to be no more than a CFL back-up but not anywhere near a starter, which is what the Als needed the whole time he was here.
Wish him well in his next career ...... wouldn't be shocked if he followed a Ryan Dinwiddie type path into coaching (just a hunch), but not with the Als
Better lucky than good …
Crompton was a QB with the EE's whom Popp brought to the team in 2015 , mid season, and was the QB on the field that generated some success to a lackluster losing Als team in the first half of that season. With Crompton joining our team we had a QB who engineered the teams winning ways, beating BC for a playoff spot which brought the team to a final losing game against Hamilton. Crompton was a player who managed to bring enough energy into our offense turning around the team that had been losing badly. 2015 was the worst of many seasons with a horrible offense but, he did generate some wins at seasons end. Quickly in 2016 this QB was injured which ended his playing career. I do believe Crompton deserves credit for his role at late season 2015.
