American football starting to look like the Canadian game

From the Leader Post

These days, it's the proverbial ant versus the elephant, economically, but after years of what sounded like envious claims by its diehard supporters that the Canadian game was more wide-open, more adventurous, more fun than the form-fitted American brand, confirmation has arrived.

It has arrived in the form of imitation, the sincerest form of flattery.

It has arrived in the emergence of 5-foot-10 Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and Carolina's Cam Newton before him, and the Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III, and the election of Texas A&M's exciting Johnny Manziel as college football's Heisman Trophy winner.

It has arrived in the proliferation of pass-to-set-up-the-run philosophies, and in the hiring of Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman by the Chicago Bears, and in the running threat of San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, which so preoccupied the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship game Sunday, they let the 49ers' other ball carriers beat them out of a trip to the Super Bowl.

The Canadian game is awesome, The American games talent combined with that can only be a good thing as a sports fan. Still don't think the NFL is quite there yet and probably never will be in terms of open ended action but its far more fun to watch than a few seasons ago.
