Cuz a 5’10-184 lb. QB is what this team’s missing. :man_facepalming:
Geezus, he's shorter than Mason Fine.

And now the total rebuild begins, eh? These signings will be gone after training came next year. Management is just trying to show change is imminent and they are working towards a better season next year. All in an attempt to save their jobs. One would think signing offensive linemen would be a starting poing rather than QB or linebackers.

Nearing 25 years in one capacity or another, first as a player then on the management operations side of business you would think that Saskatchewan Roughriders gm Jeremy O'Day would know by now how to get the job done in Riderville. He needs to be released from his duties immediately for the betterment of the football club.

May be wrong but I thought players on practise rosters become free agents when a team is done dor the season ?

If so it’s sign them or risk losing them. No risk as they can cut them later without cap hits or paying them

Agreed! He is the head and it needs to roll. Our O line has sucked for a few years now. I also think our head coach is not up to the task. He made some terrible mistakes this year. At the end of the day he needs to figure things out and he hasn’t been able to do it. Also he gives us no confidence that he can do it.

Mason Fine to be inducted into CFL HOF Grey Cup week in special ceremony. Artist rushing the bust of the Riders new starting QB. This is reportedly a first, based on his performance in last 2 games while Fajardo looked on

[/quote I also heard the Calgary front 5 and all the back ups got severely injured in a freak bob sledding incident . The CFL just gave special dispensation to allow for the front 5 from the riders along with 3 back ups to take their place in the play off run... So all is well for the run for the cup. Because we all know the 2022 rider O line was the best the CFL has seen in a century
