Folks, in my recollection, Glenn has basically MADE his CFL career against us...he has looked GREAT playing us and average to lousy against everybody else. Why would we want him, especially if we are giving up Cedric for him (and I agree..if OBIE does that, we go medieval on him!).
And if we end up shipping 'Peg's 1st round pick back, that makes it a Moreno-for-Glenn trade, which in my mind makes it even worse...I think the comparison of LeFlor's trade is a good one...Glenn ended up a co-number 1 QB (at best) by the end of the season, so why do we send one of our best defensive players for him? He was a big reason for their offensive struggles...except against us, of course.
So if he plays for us, he can't throw against OUR defence...what good is he? I'd rather have CP1 at a reduced rate playing with a decent O-line.
i don't know why we'd do this.
glenn is going to be released eventually (if they can't make a trade), and we're first on the waiver wire. we can get him for free.
i wouldn't give a starter or a first or second rounder for him. pick him up for free, if you feel you really must have him. all this talk about gagner-marcoux, bekasiak, rempel, dyakowski is ridiculous. and giving back the first rounder from the moreno trade (if you believe the winnipeg boards ...) is nonsense.
kevin glenn has almost no value after what his new coach has been saying! obie, put down the phone and walk away from your desk ... go for a reallllllly long lunch!
8) It is obvious that the Cats want rid of Printers foremost, and that if we get Glenn, he will be the backup to Porter. Putting all your faith in Porter at this point in time is a very big risk, and as mentioned above, you better have a capable, experienced QB to come in if Porter falters.
It looks pretty obvious that Marcel and Obie have already made up their mind with regards to Williams being with this team this year. I don't think they have too much faith in him.
Porter, Glenn and Tafralis seem to be the odds on favourite as being our QBs this year !!
Lets just hope that if that is the case, everything goes smoothly !!! <!-- s:roll: -->:roll:<!-- s:roll: -->
Wise words. If I was Obie, I'd sure be holding out for more than just Glenn. Kelly is desperate to move him, having publicly declared he's going to be traded, and of course he's facing that bonus that is coming due. I'd hold the gun to his head and say I'll sign Glenn when you release him since I have first dibs...........if you want me to take him off your hands now in a trade, better give me someone else in addition to Glenn............or a draft pick or two plus Glenn................
Ok....I don't know Kelly but from what I've read and seen of him in the last six weeks. I don't think you can count on this guy's to grasp much that is "real". Maybe Ticats get their revenge and take him to the cleaners...
All the Glenn haters need to wake up and smell the reality. He had 1 bad season and everyone thinks he sucks. Even though he didn't play in the 07 Grey Cup he certainly got his team there. Glenn has some very good numbers to back him up. Don't let one bad year ruin a mans whole career.
If Printers is indeed going to be gone then this team needs someone thats a vet and can provide guidance to the other QB's. Plus Glenn is much less of a locker room cancer than Printers. Glenn is much more level headed. As long as we get him for less than 150K its worth it!
