pretty decent singer.... but I digress.

I see that Cody Pickett was a rodeo star. This looks set to give us some fun puns if he sticks with the Argos- and that's no bull.

Sounds like he should be in Calgary.

I still like the idea of a running QB in the CFL like Crouch...but I guess with all these 300 lb plus linemen the pulling guards are a thing of the past. Todays linemen would wear out after the first quarter. So they sit back and pass block with the occassional run "up the gut" lol
Hope Cody can (in cowboy slang) get 'er done.

I would say that a NCAA division 1 school would have a bigger defense than a CFL team does. He was succesful in college on a smaller field. I do not buy that a scrambling QB would not be effective in the CFL.
The problem is that you can run 3-4 yards in a cloud of dust in U.S. ball and you need to be able to effectively throw the ball to the wide parts of the field in the CFL.

NO big deal. I'm a 49ers fan and was always waiting for this guy to produce. He can't read a defense and his best days in the NFL were on special teams. He had as many ST tackles as completions

He's not that great. He was like a 7th round pick and his play was erratic at best in San Fran. They thought he could be the QB of the future and then soon after they drafted Alex Smith. They figured out rather quickly that he wasn't going to be THE GUY.
