I decided to write this post to put a stop to this "so called" QB problem we have. I know that i have knocked Taman for not going after a good back-up (proven), but i have been thinking ... Tell me what you think?
a) looks like Banks is signing in the AFL or trying out for the NFL, he is officially off the BB'S Roster.
b) Khari Jones, was 3rd string in B.C and ended up being a great QB, for the first few season's, he came from the U.S as well with no CFL experience.
c) I can only say that 2 teams have a Proven Starter and that is B.C with DD and Edmonton with Ray.
Yes Ray has a bad season last year and DD is getting up with age. Some will argue that i should be including Cavillo and Allen, Calvillo is on the decline and is almost finished, Allen, same thing, even though they are both still reliable and can be effective..... But i would Rather Glenn because of his age and he still has an upside and i think he is ready to prove why he is #1 on the BB'S.
Last but not least ---- back-ups ----- look around the eague at the back-ups, it is week all around with the exception of B.C, yet that hasn't been proven. Pierce had a decent season in relief, but was it Luck? Could be.
Calgary has McManus - again up in age and lost alot
Edmonton has Johnson - who i think would be a greatback-up anywhere, yet hasn't seen the firld enough.
Riders have Crandell - reliable, won a Grey Cup but can still be inconsistant.
Argo's - Allen or Crouch?? Enough Said
Ti-Cats - Maas and butler (a great signing by the cats), but Butler is still unproven himself.
Montreal - Brady, Palmer, Green ... okay green has shown he can be good, but has shown more times that he is horrible, Palmer has never started a CFL game, so that leaves Brady i alway's liked brady, but again hasn't seen the field much.
Sorry this was so long, the point is we should'nt be too worried about our back-up QB situation YET.
see you all at the Stadium.
