However the question marks remain at QB for me. We enter the year with Nichols #1 and Davis #2 we are in for a bad bad time.
Lawless tweeted that Jabar is about to sign with MTL.

I'd like to see the Bombers sign LeFevour as backup QB.

I like both signings.

We need an experienced backup QB.

LeFevour at his best looks like the guy we all hoped Robert Marve would become.

LeFevour at his worst looks like...well, Robert Marve.

Lefevour is a good signing. He will compete with Dom Davis in camp for the #2 QB job.

Good solid pro. Lots of experience and training camps to help push younger QB's as well.

Let's go for Vince Young as well.

Great, now we have the QB who got pushed to the sidelines on the worst team in the league by the QB we wanted run out of town on a rail. Aces, Kyle.

No interest in young but always wondered how young and Manziel would do in cfl

Manziel is a train wreck off the field. I doubt he could grind it out in the CFL.

Young would want CFL starter money, and I don't think anyone would give him that.

I get all that, I'd still like to see if they could play or bust on field.

I'd like to see Manziel, for the sheer attention he would bring

If he really, truly got his life in order I would be in favour of it. I'd be worried if he came up here not ready, also with bad expectations.

Manziel would suck cuz he's not a good passer. Probably wouldn't last long

Not a fan of Lefevour signing. Very underwhelming. A Nichols-Lefevour-Davis trio is not good, probably only Saskatchewan is worse.

It will be Nichols Davis lefevour and there's nothing wrong with that at all. Eventually you gotta give the guy you've been developing a shot

That'd be even worse. Davis is bad. It became obvious to me a couple years ago why Calgary cut bait with that guy.

Nichols is at best a high quality backup QB. Lefevour is a journeyman backup/3rd stringer. Davis is a poor prospect that has never shown upside. Their QB spot is a mess. If the season goes badly you won't have to look further than that. The poor talent at QB likely what ends up costing O'Shea and maybe Walters their job.

In fairness, Willy was always going to take over in Toronto. Not going to keep that contract on the bench for the entire season.

History repeats itself. In 2009, Kevin Glenn was deemed expendable for a guy named Lefors. Now, Glenn is again deemed expendable for a guy named Lefevour. What the Le**** is with this team?

This is 100% on Walters. O'Shea can only work with what he is given. Which is not any defense of O'Shea. I'm sure he will provide enough on-field **** ups this season to justify his firing.

Toronto reworked his contract in the off-season. They also went out and signed Matthews a few days ago. Not sure what the plan in Toronto is. No GM and no coach so probably no real plan yet.

I guess with the Leafs having one, the Argos felt they had to get one, too. I wonder which will turn out to be better.

Here we go again.... Lefevour cost them nothing. Low risk. Not a big deal. Nichols led the the team to their first playoff birth since what, 2011? Gotta stick with him. I agree with you on Davis, not a huge fan. What did you want them to do? Give up assets for a QB from somewhere else that may end up only being marginally better (or worse - not better at all) than what we have?
