I will open this post and hope some TRUE BLUE fans will help me out here, let us do a pre-season grade by position. This is based on the roster of WBB.COM as of April 25th/2006, this will prove only one thing to the rest of the league and pesimists from other cities: WATCH OUT FOR THE BIG BAD BB’S THIS YEAR :evil: Let Us start at the Qb position, which i feel has never been this strong in years, will be competetive and will be one of the best in the league this year. I will post on Wednesday new position.
I believe we have a better qb situation more than any other team in the league (think about it) Sask: Joseph (Hmmm Banks is just as good if not better and is 6 years younger), Cal: Burris: Ummm overratted and due to go down hill. edm: Ray: would not have won the GC if it weren’t for Maas winning the West final: BC: DD : Umm Too many injuries and no proven back up, tough loss for lions fans. Mont: Calvillo: Alway’s strong, BUT Mathews time is up in Montreal, we all know that his players stop playing for him after 5-6 years. Tor: Allan: Does he still have it? enough said. Ham: 2nd most improved this year with the addition of JM, could be a surprise in the east this year as well as the BB’s.
QB’S: Kevin Glenn: will be 27 on June 12th , still young and had a better qb rating last year than most in the league (not bad for the team we had). Will learn to be more patient in the pocket under Coach Berry, will be challenged for starting job by BANKS. Brad Banks : 26 years old, has shown promise in a back up roll with the rens last year, compared by most to Damon Allen for his scrambling style, has a strong arm, will compete for #1 with Glenn, Great pick up by Taman as he is as good, if not better than Joseph and 5 -6 years younger. Russ Michna : No secret here, Russ is young at 25 and was the best in training camp last year, showed great poise in a limited roll last year, strong arm, great awareness, will compete for #2 spot, probably be third though. Mike Quinn : Personally i never seen this guy play, but coach Berry see’s something in him even though he is 32 years old, not much i can say here except i think it was an insurance move and will not make the team (any opinions here BB Fans?). Tee Martin : Well we all know his story, he is a whiner and may not even show up for TC, but oh well, wouldn’t make the team anyway’s, no big loss … my TC rating for the qb position is B-
