Brandon Banks TD Breakdown
5/missed FG return
ORGINAL POST 06/29
After another stellar performance last night, Banks is now all alone in fifth place on the Tiger-Cats all-time touchdown list. He currently sits at 47, and God willing he will likely end up second all-time behind Earl the Pearl.
Unbelievable achievement for a true Hamilton legend. This season he already passed Archie Amerson, Rocky Dipietro, Gerry McDougall and Ronald Williams.
Amerson will always be my childhood hero, but Banks easily slots into second on my personal all-time favourite list. We’ve been lucky to watch him play his entire career in black and gold, let’s hope he gets the big one before he hangs them up. Sadly Earl never got that chance, and even sadder I never got a chance to watch him live. How do you rank the three? Moreso wondering how people compare AA and Speedy since the Pearl should be tops on everyone’s list who got to see him play.
Bonus fact: After returning his fourth career FG against the Blows, Banks is currently tied with Earl Winfield for all-time return TDs with 12 … Idk when he’s going to pass him with the reduced role, but you just gotta believe he’s gunna capitalize eventually. UPDATE MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
Edit 2nd bonus fact: Speedy is also 2nd behind Winfield in all-time yards with 11,443. That puts him just 3335 yards off first place, not sure if he’ll get there but this one is more realistic than the all-time touchdown record.
Let the good times roll eat em raw ?
