Als today announced the signings of 2 Canadian QBs - Drew Burko (Sask.) and Jimmy Underahl (Calg.) I didn`t call them Nationals because the designation is irrelevant when it comes to QBs.
I am asking why and what for? We all love the Canadian feel good stories of finding the next Russ Jackson, but as things stand now in the CFL there is no roster advantage to starting a National QB. It doesn`t allow you to use an International elsewhere.
So if you
re bringing in QBs to compete, you bring in the best available in North America. Who are generally American trained, its just a reality. Bridge is a legitimate candidate because of his US college training. Highly doubtful Burko and Underahl are future QB prospects.
Unless they are good athletes brought in with the understanding they can be switched to WR, etc.
