Just wanted to drop a quick note to Bomber fans and other teams fans about the release of Santos, why was he released? I still think Santos could be a good QB in the CFL but what ALL CFL fans don't know is the inside story of his release, when asked about the possibility of being on the Bomber's PR about a month ago, Santos pretty much said he is not willing to be on the PR ... Not his smartest move when Lapolice and Mack are trying to put together a group of player's with GOOD attitudes and TEAM FIRST attitudes. DiMichele has alway's been willing to be on the PR until his opportunity comes plus DiMichele has a bigger upside than Santos, that is why AD is still here and Santos is jobless.
I have every confidence in the world in Mack and LaPo and they obviously noticed what most BB fans noticed as well, DiMichele has everything it takes to be a great QB in the CFL. They also see something in Brink that some may have missed, enough to trade a pick for him and release Santos not long after. Also note the most recent QB signings, Sask signs Dinwiddie and Reesing NOT Santos .... Notice no team has made a move on Santos, is there something the GM'S know that the fans missed?
That is why a GM get's paid, to scout/trade/sign the best possible player's and Mack and LaPo chose DiMichele and Brink over Santos for a reason .... it is also great to see Ryan Dinwiddie get another shot, great guy, great teamate and i wish him the best and if he makes the Riders he will be a great guy in the locker room and bench and the Rider fans will see why ALOT of BB fans have a soft spot for Ryan.
Will this be the end for Santos? Probably not, maybe T.O gives him a chance if/when one of there QB'S craps the bed ... I also wouldn't be surprised if Edmonton made a move and released Maas this season that would create another opportunity for the likes of Santos, What about Hamilton? Even many Cat fans have admitted that Porter may get his walking papers this season!! If Mack is right about Brink than we already stole a QB from the Cats!!
