Watching RGIII and the Redskins last night
Dispatch the Superbowl Champs New York Giants
And their "elite" quarterback
I couldn't help thinking of my vision for the Alouettes
Had they travelled that other road
An athletic quarterback
Who gives defences fits with option plays
A good strong running game
And creativity...mostly just that.
Griffin's a rookie
And despite the "growing pains" at the start of the season
We're starting to see what an offence moulded around his talents and skills
Will someday be
As the TV announcer blurted at one point, "He's changing the nature of football."
It's exciting...and the city of Washington is getting "the fever"
Yay for them.
There's no question in my mind that Adrian McPherson
Has every bit as much talent as RGIII
Maybe not as much speed
But a tougher and more physical runner
And a better throwing arm.
As we get closer to AC declaring his intentions
It seems increasingly certain that and Alouettes team
Moulded and designed around AD's talents
Will never come to fruition
McPherson will decamp and bring everything he's learned these long and frustrating years
To some other franchise...who will hopefully understand what they have
And use it wisely
Les Redskins Nord...as it were.
It should be exciting
Too bad the Alouettes will remain becalmed
No wind in their sails
Coaches abandoning a stinking ship
For as far in the future as anyone can see.
