You're not allowed to have 2 QBs on the field at the same time, because they exist outside the import/non-import ratio.
You would have to list one of them on your roster at another position and have him take up an import spot.
You don't need a second QB to run that trick play anyway. Teams do it all the time with a receiver or running back.
Edmonton could use Mathieu Bertrand, their fullback who played QB at Laval.
If Jon Behie from Mac is good enough to make it as a receiver he could do the same.
Toronto played a couple of games this year with Noel Prefontaine as their 3rd string QB. Did they designate him as a "QB" on the roster?
If not, how could they use him there in an emergency?
And if so, how could he play at his regular position? My guess is that a punter can be counted as a QB anyway ... not sure about FGs and kick-offs though. Or maybe any special teams is OK because the other QBs aren't on the field.
even if we could use 2 QB's on a trick play do you not think that the defense would suspect that the 2nd QB would be involved somehow and key in on him? by the time u get the ball to the other QB the defense is right there...just would not work in the CFL!
I think that technically the punting team is still on offence, so a QB can be on the field.
I vaguely remember the Cats lining up Ken Hobart in one of the "up-back" positions on the punt team on a regular basis one year.
you'd have to build up for it. like i said, williams (or brady for that matter) would also probably make a good limited RB. it would take some time to build the respect from the defense for both the run and the throw from both the QB and 'RB'.
it would provide options, which provides chances to score.
I guess what it boils down to is that I'd like to see Williams on the field in some capacity...
That beautiful tight spiral long pass after a bit of dancing in the backfield to Peterson?
really caught my attention...and to have him stuck on the sidelines..waste of talent and opportunity.
