I was idly surfing YouTube when I came across this video of a young Chris Streveler demonstrating his throwing technique!   I love this guy and I had to chuckle at his "flicking the booger" analogy!

That was fun.  If you read the comments, this wasn't a PSA for how to throw a football, it was a demonstration speech for public speaking...

Hes a good communicator....poised...confident and unassuming!   All great leadership qualities!  He was runner up for the Walter Payton Award for good reason...

For whatever reason I ended up watching all the highlight moments of Chris Strevelers college career and to say he was impressive is an understatement.   I really think we have a special player with this guy and he's a fighter on the field and a true leader.   I fear if we don't give him the shot he deserves he will be playing for someone else after next season.   I believe he is our future and for us to ever win a Grey Cup in my lifetime we need a great QB not just one who manages games.   When you look at his body of work for the Bombers last season he made things happen when given the opportunities.   Matt Nichols is just ok but he doesn't have the gifts of a Chris Streveler and his ego seems somewhat fragile.   For whatever reason our offensive game plan didn't utilize Streveler in the WF like it did in the WSF against the Riders where he did make an impact.   I was not impressed with Nichols in that game and felt had Streveler been given more opportunities he would have given the Calgary D some trouble.    Of course all of this is mere conjecture on my part and yes Nichols has been our best QB in years but Is he he Grey Cup material?  If Chris Streveler is given a chance he will succeed....but since we have signed Nichols for big money next season that's unlikely to happen.   On top of that we also need to get some receivers who can win the jump balls which we need to recruit.  Right now Chris Streveler will be working out throwing footballs and studying our offencive system and he will be even better next season....if he's given a chance!   Happy New Year Bomber fans.....keep the faith!

It will be very interesting to see what happens this coming season. If they continue to work on/with Streveler and get him more opportunities to see the field.
