Popp Runner

[i]The team that wins twice as much, lives half as long - and you have won so very, very much Alouettes.

Johnny has seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack formations on fire off the shoulder of Bryan Chiu. Johnny watched shotgun formations glitter in the trenches near the enemy goal line.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears...in...rain. Time to bail out.

[i]For those who don't get the references, Johnny imagined the demise and eventual end of the Alouettes, just like the demise and end of the replicants in Blade Runner. Here are the scenes that Johnny modified for his post:

If anyone has yet to see this movie, run out and buy the Director's cut. It's awesome! :rockin:[/i]

Is it just me, or does it look like Popp gets fatter every game ?
Normally, I would not comment on a person's physical look, but if he is gaining weight it could be stress related.
I would not blame him for being stressed.

Not only are the Als on the bottom, but he is in a mess that he has no control over.

Thing is the Als were doing well when Crompton was the QB. Players respected him as their leader.
Now, revolving qb's does not help.

As for Johnny's fear for demise, I hope this does not turn out like the 80's and fans just give up.

[i]Popp is in a heavy weight competition with Laquan McGowan. In 3 weeks, Popp takes the lead!

Either way, Popp still looks lean and athletic compared to Jim Barker. :smiley: [/i]

Crompton is the winningest QB in the post A.C. era at 9-4
Glen was 4-8
Cato is 4-9
Smith 3-6
Marsh 1-3
Bridge 0-1
Neiswander 3-2
Brink 0-2

Wow, that's brutal. Sure hope Crompton is back soon.

Is he still hurt??
