Do you agree with Matt Dunigan that Calvillo needs to sit for some portion of the last two regular-season games so that Brady and/or Macpherson can get some quality playing time, or do you think A.C. should go the whole way through?
For myself, I agree with Dunigan. We are one hit, one head shot, one knee shot, away from total disaster. The O-line has been fantastic this year, and Calvillo, as the consummate timing quarterback, usually gets the ball out so quickly that he doesn't have time to be hit, but I have two words that will send chills down the spine of any Als fan: Ted White. You can't foresee every situation. All it takes is one broken play or missed block to end our Grey Cup hopes. Brady has not thrown a single pass this season. Macpherson has been used exclusively in short-yardage situations. At least one of the two needs some quality playing time.
If I were Trestman, I'd sit Calvillo during the fourth quarters of each of the final two games, regardless of the score. Give Brady two full quarters of football to acquire some degree of comfort in this timing offense and let his receivers get an idea of how he operates as compared to Calvillo.
I understand that Calvillo is chasing history, and no one wants to see him break Flutie's TD record more than I do, but at the end of the day, the Grey Cup is the most important prize. Imagine how sweet it would be for Calvillo if we were able to win the Cup and he could end his illustrious career with a championship. That, to me, would be a far happier ending than individual stats.
What do you think?
