I have no idea what the Riders are doing and haven't since they did nothing in free agency process at beginning of 2022!!
Now, there were at least 3 well experienced pro football Offensive gurus available and I know you can name them.
Instead they go with WHO??
Kelly speaks glowingly of Cody, says they can win Grey Cup with him, article at 3 down nation
Coach Dickie adds this
Cody's one of the guys we're going to look at hard. If it is Cody, we're going to work real hard at regaining his trust. And hopefully he's going to do the same, to work real hard to make improvements in his game."
I find the word "regaining" to be very interesting. That tells me that Dicks did, in fact, lose at least his quarterback and possibly the whole room last year, as I suspected. I wonder if it was the "vet day" lie (he certainly lost me with that one), or if trust was already gone and that was just icing on the cake.
I know if I'm a leader in the room, an action like that by the coach on one of my teammates stays at the front of the file for a long time. He's got more than Cody that he has to redeem himself to.
