If I have to watch an Eskimo QB struggle I'd rather it be a youngster with upside than a veteran with none. The fact that candidates for the position of Eskimos starting QB in 2013 could include Henry Burris (38 years old in June), Kerry Joseph (40 in Oct.) or Kevin Glenn (34 in June) shows the extent to which the CFL QB well is running dry. Time is even ticking on unproven potential free agent signing Adrian MacPherson (turning 30- same age as Steven Jyles in 2012). That's why I think the right choice is to follow Calgary's lead and go with a younger starter with a veteran around strictly as insurance.
As I recall there was a late season resurgance by the Eskimos last year,what was that all about,something changed for the better and it almost resulted in a late season winning streak going into the playoffs.What was it that changed????Come on now,it was something,now what was it??
I think that the coaching staff finally began to approach their tactics with more continuity and flow and began making roster decisions based on dynamic results not pieces of paper.I wonder why we suddenly saw a much different use of our most talented players during that little positive streak-maybe someone ought to investigate this anomaly and try to foster it into the Eskimos game next year from the start of the season??
The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced they have agreed to terms with former Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach George Cortez to become the team's offensive coordinator on Monday. Cortez returned to the CFL last year as Hamilton's head coach and director of football operations after two years with the Buffalo Bills as quarterbacks coach
I sure hope Joseph is released too. But I expect Kavis's buddy gets to stick around as long as he wants to. After all, why make decisions based on play when you can do it based on who you like hanging out with?
