Their starting QB through four out of those five seasons? Darian Durant.

Personally I don't think that the Eskimos' situation is as perilous as the Oilers'. Hervey needs to wise up, sack Reed and his coaching staff and tear down the team's defense.
The problem here is that Hervey is making things worse. At least in the NHL you can turn to your minor league team or whatever and find hope.

With the Eskimos current state, even simple things seem impossible. Kavis Reed obviously should be gone, but is it that obvious to Hervey? How do the Eskimos go from having one of the league's premier defenses to swiss cheese in a single season?

The fact that management has been a downgrade ever since Macocia is very, very alarming.
