Great quote from Chris Schultz. He would fit in very well on this site.
Hamilton right now is 6-9. [b]I wonder if they would not be 9-6 if Glenn took over on Labour Day weekend.[/b] Quinton Porter will be a good QB, but Glenn already is. Against the best defence in the CFL, Glenn was 29 of 44, for an amazing total of 506 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions.
Did the Hamilton Tiger-Cats coaches, management, and decision makers wait too long to make a decision? Yes they did, but they play Toronto, Saskatchewan, and end in Winnipeg for game 18, Week 19. A home playoff for Ticats fans is still possible.
Problem 1: Glenn did start on Labour Day, and again the following week. Our record was 1-1 in those two games. No improvement possible by switching to Glenn, because he was already the starter.
Problem 2: While Porter started the following 4 games, the Cats actually won one of those (at home versus Calgary Sept 18). Presumably even Glenn could not have achieved a better result in that game.
Shultz’s Conclusion (apparently): Had Glenn started in the three games that Hamilton lost (versus Montreal, Calgary and Winnipeg), Ticats may have won all three. I suppose anything is possible, but it makes me wonder what difference Schultz thinks Glenn could have made in the game when Montreal thumped us 42-8. (Keeping in mind that he did play in the second half)
My point is not to re-ignite any debates, but rather to emphasize that even the “experts” will bend facts to suit whatever their opinion happens to be.
(Sorry for starting a new thread. Other QB-focused threads seem to be vanishing.)
