man, do you even football? (jk)
in most other sports a team can often cling to just a couple of players to break things open and make them championship contenders.
In football, and especially with the small rosters of the CFL it takes every player on the game day roster completing their assignments in order to win.
You absolutely need all 12 men, on each offense, defense and special teams performing at a high level if you want to bring home hardware. If 1 person blows a play, it can change absolutely everything.
eg. A quarterback is nothing without good receivers and protection. A defense will never force plays if the receivers are always open. A kicker can't get a field goal with a bad snap. The list goes on and on for every situation in the game.
I started this thread because while losing Zack is front page news, so was losing CJ. Fantuz, Bolden, Madu, Gaydosh,Bulke, Sears Jr., Watt. And despite all of this we still have the best complete team in the league and we keep winning games.
I'm surprised to see there aren't more people who don't feel the same
