Everyone on this board has been screaming for Chang to start all year, even when Taaffe said he wasn't ready. After the Montreal game I was with everyone else that thought it was best for him to start Labour Day. That's where the commonalities with myself and most other fans end. Too me starting Chang was the end of the Maas era and the start of Chang's Time. As with most struggling football teams, when you make the QB change you usually do for the remainder of the season.
I stated in earlier threads that no one should be calling out Chang after we lose cos he's a raw rookie. But here we are after another loss and especially on Labour Day and we already have "start Williams" comments. This is a complete joke!! So after Williams falls flat on his face where do you go. Just bring in someonelse? Some on the boards complain that we don't develop our own QB's. They are 100% right. The reason for that? Well it seems as though the fans have given every management team we've had the idea that we aren't patient enough to do so. It seems to me after this past game, and now the comments I'm reading that this is very true.
What I saw today was a QB who didn't have any time to do anything at all. Whether it be from lack of protection or bad snaps. How is a raw rookie supposed to excel in those conditions against a stellar defence like the Argos. I then had to watch as Maas comes in, and other than 1 nice TD pass, look like the same old guy we already knew we had. He cemented that thought with his horrendous fumble. At that point I left. I couldn't watch that garbage anymore. So I talk to friends that stay and they say Williams came in for mop up duty, looked good till he fumbled.
So, after Williams "impressive?" mop up duty I get to read that we should start him now from some on here. It's the same thing every year and every game with a mojority of Tiger Cat fans. the next QB in line is always better. That's why we're going to always have QB problems. Williams looked good because the Argos were going through the motions of winding down the game. That's it. He doesn't mean he's going to succeed if he starts.
My solution is to start Chang (hopefully with a healthy Lumsden) and see what happens. If he's the same way after getting another full week as starter then go to Williams. Not Maas, I've read that book and seen the movie, they're both not very good endings.
