It looks like according to Gary Lawless that the Riders have officially traded Kevin Glenn to the Alouettes for a 5th round draft pick. This trade means that if Glenn is ready to go on Sunday that the Cats will be facing him back to back but with different teams. Interesting, very interesting indeed.
Hmm...could (emphasis on COULD) mean the difference between a crossover spot and no playoffs for the Als.
The clearest deficiency in the Als offence is at QB. Glenn may be enough to get them over that problem.
They have the receivers.
My only question now would be their O-line protecting Glenn.
bobo, I don't think that Glenn would learn the playbook fast enough to play for the Als this week.
But, desperate times, desperate measures!
P.S. When did TSN start covering the CFL? I thought that they gave up and are letting Sportsnet do that now.
It's like putting a band-aid on a gunshot wound. Well I hope that in the off-season the Als do the right thing and trade Kevin to the Eskimos......not that they'll probably need him....but it would complete the Glenn circuit of being the property of every single team in the league at least once in his career. It just shows how desperate that Jim Popp has become and how BAD the situation really is in Montreal and just how far this once model franchise has fallen in recent years. Trust me on this....KG won't I repeat WON'T make a lick of difference this season to the Alouette"s fortunes.....Like I said and I repeat...A band-aid on a gunshot wound....Nuff said.
The Als waited 3 weeks too long to make this trade. They are now desperate for a western playoff spot, but it could help them next season, as Cato, Marsh, Crompton and the others were just not getting it done with no signs of improving.
LOL!!!! Have you seen their offense ? Have you seen " Are you smarter than a 5th grader" How hard could it be to pick up an Offensive playbook that's akin to what you would see watching Pee Wee Football ? To put it another way it is truly a "Popp" Gun offense. Pun totally intentional by the way. :lol: My guess is that come Sunday we will see KG playing "Chuck n Duck" under center for a second consecutive week with a second consecutive team. The Alouettes are like I said going nowhere this season anyway and trading for Glenn ain't going to make a lick of difference in the process.
I'd argue that it's more overdue than that, going back to the offseason. It seemed to make more sense to have him as an insurance policy going into the season than a desperate gamble, we'll see if it's better late than never. If Glenn does manage to pick things up and gets the Als into the playoffs, however, too many people will credit Popp for being a genius and forget all the coaching and personnel mistakes he's made on the offensive side up to this point.
Is Glenn going to be with the Als next year for sure? I thought he signed a 1 yr deal which would make him a FA, no? If so he could still return to Montreal if they guarantee him the starter's job, but if he's limited to just a backup role there could be competition for him. In the past there was a knock on him that he didn't work with the other QBs very well, but he seemed to have matured in that role the way he helped with Brett Smith this year. Would be a good mentor for Cato IMO.
Good for Kevin Glenn and a good fit in Montreal I'm sure that will work out. I think they waited a bit too long and should have signed him when he was a FA at BC, hover no time like the present.
How many QB's does Montreal have now? Crompton, Lefevour, Bridge, Boone, Cato, Marsh now Glenn, Wow like 7 QB's maybe we should watch out for who get's the boot next for a potential pick up in Hamilton, Bridge might be a good one for a Canadian QB?
