I hope Jim Barker comes to his senses and starts LEMON in BC and has Jyles as the backup qb. It would be a good spot for JYLES and he can come in if Lemon is struggling.
To be honest the issues are with bad play calling, drops, old receiving core in Copeland and running backs playing receivers.
I think blaming Lemon for the offensive issues is wrong and can start a huge divide on the team. The argos team will not react well if Lemon is benched and JYLES is thrown into the game vs a HOT BC defense on the road with little practice time and a limited understanding of the offense.
The only reasonable thing to do is to have Lemon start, Jyles backup and cut BELL or demote him to 3rd --- You simply cannot expect a guy being off for a year off shoulder surgery who hasnt played a single snap of football is going to jump start a dead offense?
I feel that Barker has lost the teams respect, and by benching all 3 of your QBs and lettig Jyles start would be a sure sign of panic and would say basically I have no confidence in any of the 3 qbs who were here since the start of training camp?
I hope Lemon gets the start as he is the leader, he is the one who knows this offense- Give the guy a break, his receivers are the worst in the CFL and the play calling is brutal also--
Please Barker dont make this mistake, if you do , the Argos will quit on you and you will be fired midseason--
I'm all for giving Jyles a chance, but you cannot start him vs BC- BC is playing lights out and could completely destroy the ARGOS with a WIN- Jyles is not TOM BRADY- I think people are thinking JYLES is the next Warren MOON-- He is not, if he was he woudnt be traded or let go by 2 teams already--
If Jyles was to start and lose it would look so stupid on Barker-- I think Barker's ego got the best of him, after a 2 and out, Barker told Lemon off, i could see on the TV he ripped lemon good- benching Lemon was done because Barker is sick of him-
If Barker knows anything about building a grey cup team, lets hope he starts LEMON- If lemon fails then you bring in JYLES, but LEMON deserves another chance- He won vs SASK, and vs BC they were not getting blown out at half-- Bringing in BELL was ridiculous and not fair to the fans-
