As soon as he heard that Trestman was leaving, Anthony Calvillo declared that he didn’t give a seconds thought to retirement.
When Trestman found Calvillo he was on the precipice…and almost everyone in town was ready to push him over.
Trestman’s offence was a remarkable fit for the lead-footed gun-slinger.
History was made.
And now…with the future at our doorstep
Everything is turmoil and chaos
God only knows what direction the fate of this team will take
After two less-than-successful campaigns in a row
Anthony Calvillo at 40+ and counting
Spent most of last year mimicking a one armed bandit
Won’t give a seconds thought to retirement!
WHAT A RELIEF!!!
So…whoever takes the helm of this teetering ship
Will be saddled with the daunting task
Of creating an offence which
For the last 2 seasons was primarily and increasingly concerned
With keeping Calvillo from getting knocked on his can.
Double tights = booooooooooooring
Forget the running game
(Last year was appalling)
Ignore ANYTHING that might require some athleticism from the position
(unless you can work a kungfu move in somewhere)
Let’s hobble whoever takes over this team
Fatalistically insist that he lead us down this path
With the operative word here being “DOWN?
No doubt Adrian McPhersons agent is working feverishly to get his client settled
In ANY other CFL situation.
But with any luck…Trestman’s greatest legacy will have been
An almost total lack of film
From which other teams can judge his abilities.
I wouldn’t want to lock the (no longer) young man
Into another several years of limbo
But if I’m reading the tea leaves right
The Boo birds that “gentil alouetted? Calvillo after yet another
Lackluster playoff FAIL last year.
Will be singing a spirited chorus before too long.
I once begged Adrian McPherson to stay in Montreal.
I’ve come to regret it.
He was NEVER going to get effective playing time under Trestman
Wrong coach, wrong system, wrong situation.
But I see a glimmer of hope here
An opportunity for a full-on reset
With a new and exciting quarterback
Brimming with potential, knowledge and talent
Someone around whom a new Head Coach could arguably build a winning team
For years to come.
Either that or,
“Get out the hammer Ma…old Bessie’s thrown a shoe again?
So maybe it’s time to stand up and be counted
At the very least…Anthony Calvillo is not the ideal quarterback
For what will essentially be a new team
[A] new direction
I call on anyone who cares to voice their concerns
Before it’s too late
And everything resets in stone
And that stone tightens around our necks
