Ricky Ray to the Argos rumor

Wow, if this is true that could be trouble as we couldn't beat them when they had no QB .

Ray is a guy that I would hope the Ticats would look at since he is coming off an off year and Glenn is coming off a big year but i''d take Ray over Genn ...

There must be a good 2knd running back out there that we can pick up to replace Cobb too

I don't know where you heard this rumor, but it's clear that with Tillman now running the show in Edmonton, with the Eskimos stinking the past two years, and with Zebransky emerging, I suspect that if Tillman can trade Ray and his huge salary for help in other areas, he will do it.

I would think we wouldn't have the cap room to accomodate Ray's salary here in Hamilton.


I could see this. Tillman would also bring in Kerry Joseph...oh wait, he already signed with Edmonton last month. So his plan would be Zabransky then KJ for next year. What would the blew team give up for Ray?

Rumors are for NFL teams.
In the CFL we have rumours.

RR to the Boatmen could be a major bonehead move by Ed. :oops: :oops:

Would be great news for the Argos!! 10 wins with a mediocre QB this season, with Ricky Ray they would be the power in the East.

No they wouldn't. . . they'd be improved, yes, but "the power in the East?" No... Ray is on the downside of his career, and the Argos have clearly the weakest receiving corps in the East, by a country mile.

I have a few sources :

Hmmm…two of the three articles are the same, and all three are written by the same guy.

The lines that stands out for me is, "Whispers are persistent that the Argos are interested in quarterback Ricky Ray of the Edmonton Eskimos." and that can be found in the 3rd article.

and in the other article, "[i]Argos head coach Jim Barker has not contacted Eskimos general manager Eric Tillman about the possibility of trading for Ray.

As it stands now, the Eskimos are leaning toward keeping Ray for next year[/i]"

If the Argos can beat the Cats with Lemon, just think what we could do if we had Ray! Scared Cats fans?

The Argos didn't beat the Cats.

The Cats beat the Cats.

Our new logo?

I'd be more scared if I was an Argo fan and the rumor WASN'T true.

LOL I like it!

But they beat us!!

didn't a lot of people say that Calvillo was on the downside of his career?????

Argos only have to pic up one quality receiver and with an accurate passer like Ray they will be a force next season.

Downside of his career? He's only 31!! He's got lots left but he needs a good supporting cast. He'd make the Argos into immediate legit contenders.

An Argo-Cat fan

barney: Agreed.
I tried to make that argument earlier as a reason for us getting Ray.......to prevent the blue team from that kind of immediate improvement. But there could have been a bidding war for him. I would trade Glenn if we got Ray. If not then we keep Glenn. In either case we need to re-vamp our offence big time.
A lot of of folks still seem to think we just need a few minor changes and we will be a contender. If the blue team gets Ray we had better start thinking bigger than that.....or I predict we will be in the basement again in 2011.

And how did the following week go for you?

We beat ourselves in the EDSF. Don't gamble on that happening again.

Ya, 2 years in a row.......just a fluke right
