I've hesitated to say it but this team does not have confidence in QP to be the guy to lead it to victory. The HC should be able to assess that and in that respect MB has failed to correctly judge the collective psyche of his team. You can crow all you want about how professionals have to play regardless of who's in the game, but these are human being who will make their own judgments, conscious and sub-conscious. If the players head into the game without the confidence that the right guy is in the most critical position, is it any wonder they have been such slow starters all season?
I just don't feel there is a high confidence level in QP and there's really no reason there should be. That just puts more pressure on everyone to have to be perfect because the quarterback isn't ready to lead. If you are not willing to go to war with the guy, that is a major problem. The fact that Coach Marcel has not been able to see this and adjust to build team confidence is just being totally dogmatic.
Kevin Glenn may not be the best QB in the CFL, but he is the Hamilton Tiger-Cats best option to win football games. The fact that Arland Bruce had to make public comments to that effect just proves my assessment of the collective attitude of the team. You can say he may not speak for all the players, but my guess is he speaks for the majority.
