When was this claim made? While it is entirely possible that this will happen, I don't think it should be taken as gospel because of what posters said. Were these posters Winnipeg fans or were they fans from other teams? Looking at it now, I don't see Brink being chosen and I don't see Pierce still being with Winnipeg when the expansion draft is held. That leaves Elliott and Goltz. Don't know if Ottawa would take either. Of course, a major factor will be who is in charge of the team. Say Marcel Bellefeuille is the head coach or GM (not saying he will be, but this has been rumoured), perhaps he goes with a guy like Quinton Porter because of their familiarity with each other. I think there are a lot of potentially good, young QBs that could be taken and I don't think it is a given that one of them will come from Winnipeg.
Calgary's QB depth is actually Tate, Glenn and Mitchell (now Glenn, Mitchell and Sinopoli). At no point was it ever Tate, Glenn, SInopoli.
You seem very high on Goltz, but he's a fourth-stringer who spends most of his time on the practice squad (he's on the 42-man roster now because of the injury to Pierce). At any time another team could claim Goltz from the PR and get him or force Winnipeg to activate him. As far as I know, that has never happened, so the other seven teams don't seem to think that Goltz is good enough to be their third- or second-string QB. If they did, they would take him when he's on the PR.
I think saying that Winnipeg's QB depth is the envy of the league is a bit much. They have a lot of potential at QB -- potential that also happens to be dissipating by the day -- but potential, I don't think, is enough to claim league-wide envy.
Also, what has this great QB depth done for Winnipeg? They're 1-5 and in last place in the league. Pierce is once again injured; Brink has played himself out of a starting job; Elliott, who I like, has his shot now, so I won't judge him until he's had a couple of games; and Goltz, despite six career pass attempts is still mostly an unknown on par with every other third- and fourth-string QB.
I get why Bomber fans think they have great QB depth. I don't even blame you guys for thinking it -- I remember when Tiger-Cat fans were raving about the Glenn-Poter-Tafralis-Boltus quartet -- but it looks like we're going to see how great at least three of these QBs are. Two of them have been able to lead the team to a combined one win so far this season. Let's see how Elliott does with his shot, but I think this great QB depth that you guys talk about is not as great as you believe.
