You unrepentant homers....

Look, Pipkin has 1200+ yards, is 2-2 in starts (2018) and has shown he has some physical ability and can win a game. 

McGuire is 2/3 and 17 yards  How can anyone possibly conclude that he has more ability, upside or potential than Pipkin at this point? I am not saying McGuire won't turn into a CFL HoF QB, who knows what is possible.  But if Collaros takes a noggin shot next August, I want a guy on the bench who has at least won a game in the CFL.  At the very least, a guy like Pipkin should be brought in to compete with McGuire.
Age also can't be an excuse. McGuire is 23. Pipkin is 24

Pass on Pipkin. He doesn't impress me. He had a few good starts but hasn't done anything lately.

He has barely more knowns than McGuire. Nobody is concluding anything. If he did have significantly more experience and did significantly more wins, that might be a different story. Saw him play and while he wasn't bad, the raw potential of McGuire is more intriguing. It's not uncommon for a team to covet the guys they bring in, too.

Well said. I'd rather the team explore other options. Pipkin's not worth a look, IMO.

No drought about it.
Still can't fix stupid. And you apparently can't quarantine, it either.

We are past the time of picking over scrap heaps... Pip[kin had the usual flash of a new QB, until other teams had CFL film on them.  Unfortunately, I don't think Pipkin has shown anything worth a second look.

We're not past the point of picking over scrap heaps.  There's a better than average chance that MBT, Pipkin, or Jennings is in Blue and Gold sometime next season, it's just down to whether or not we want to commit early and take the best of what's available, or roll the dice and take what's left.

Not saying that that in any way makes Pipkin the best option, but let's not pretend like we're in a massively better position at QB than other years.  In fact, if Strev doesn't come back, we're pretty much back to the Buck and the Backups routine, where we hope our starter doesn't get hammered, because no one else has live game experience.

I say we don't rush and see how Strev situation plays out.

If Streveler isn't back, Pipkin is my choice for backup with a bit of upside and experience

As opposed to Masoli, Nichols, Fajardo, Adams Jr, etc...

Many QBs in our league are scrap heaped before they become starters.  Very, very few develop and become the starter for the same team.

I'd be interested in bringing him to camp and seeing him side by side with McGuire

Why not. He is young, has looked promising (especially a couple years ago on that awful MTL team) and we have a whole 2 QBs under contract.

It's okay to bring in other teams cuts. We need to accept that

Yeah like when we signed J.Grant after he got cut by Hamilton after the preseason, Nick Taylorand Korey Jones after Edmonton cut them, Rasheed Bailey and Kenny Lawler after they got cut by BC a couple years ago...if we wanna go a bit further theres Augustine from EDM and Sask, Hardrick from Sask and BC. We traded a 7th for Nichols because Edmonton didn't need him anymore. Also, in our practice squad/1 game IR we had Darrel William's (Hamilton), Jordan Robinson (Edm), Koloamatangi (BC),Latour (Montreal), Malcolm William's (Toronto) and Brandon Calver and Dondre Wright (Montreal). All were cut at some point during the season. All were a part of our GC winning team. 3 are under contract at the moment.

It's a small league and also a different type of football than what most americans play. Bringing in other teams cuts isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as they either get cut if they aren't up to par or become a solid player
