Of course...I'm not the first to suggest it.
With Milanovich leaving Rick Moffat writes in a story for CJAD:
Problem is, will he have a quarterback to work with in TO? There's ample speculation Henry Burris will wind up there. Could Milanovich also try to pry Adrian McPherson from the Als, as Toronto has tried in recent years too?[url=http://www.cjad.com/blog/AlouettesNews/blogentry.aspx?BlogEntryID=10318544]http://www.cjad.com/blog/AlouettesNews/ ...

It's "in the ether" like they say.
It would seem this is "crunch time"
Either the Alouettes brass stand pat...embrace their decline with an aging, hobbled quarterback
A predictable offence and head-coach
Or they make the decision...here and now...to build for the future
L'auditoire québécois dégringole De 1,1 million de téléspectateurs qui ont vu les Alouettes gagner la Coupe Grey en 2010, il est passé à 225 000 cette année. L'auditoire de TSN a quant à lui reculé de 13 pour cent.[url=http://www.985sports.ca/football/nouvelles/coupe-grey-forte-baisse-de-l-auditoire-109684.html]http://www.985sports.ca/football/nouvel ... 09684.html[/url] Grey Cup viewers were a quarter of last year's in Quebec Unlike some other markets...there are just too many distractions in Montreal to field a mediocre team and be successful. But more than that, even if the Alouettes have a similar year in 2012, will this city respond to the "same old, same old" approach this team seems destined for?
There's no question that McPherson is desperately unhappy.
The best years of his playing life are being spent on the bench.
Don't be surprised if the Argos make overtures to AD once Milanovich is settled.
And if McPherson goes...we lose the future...plain and simple.
I've been warning about the Decline and Fall of this Alouettes Empire for 3 years.
My sole purpose has been to prevent what now seems to be in the process of being realized.
If McPherson goes to the Argos I'll still be an Alouettes fan.
But I wonder if there'll be much point
And for how long?
