Bombers really hit the jackpot when they fetched this guy off the scrap heap in Regina.
What a find.
Now, without a monster like Chris Streveller to back him up, Zach is all alone out there. McGuire is a decent short yardage QB but totally unproven as a starter. Its Zach or nothing.
In fact I like Zach a lot even though he's played less than a dozen games as a Bomber. I'd rate him only behind Jack Jacobs & Kenny Ploen (4 Grey Cup rings) as a starter. Jacobs never won the Grey Cup btw.
OK after Jacobs & Ploen the Bombers haven't exactly been blessed by top American QBs.
Many would rate Matt Dunigan, a true hall of famer ahead of Zach. Same with Tom Terrific, Tom Clements. But other than those two I don't think there's too many other ex Bomber QBs who answer the call as well as Zach C.
Look at the unfortunate list of miscreants, hobos and partial stars:
Bill Van Burkleo, Hal Ledyard, Chuck Ealey, Benji Dial, Max Hall, Tom Burgess, Ralph Brock (greatest physical talent Bombers had at QB, just didn't have much of a mind), Streveller, Drew Willy, Darian Durant, Kevin Glenn, John Schneider, TJ Rubley, Troy Kopp, Kerwin Bell, Reggie Slack, Samuel Garza, T Martin, Chris Vargas, Buck Pierce, Steven Jyles, Michael Bishop, Alex Brink, Joey Elliott, Brian Ah Yat, Throwin' Samoan, etc.
