Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on December 17, 2021, 11:52:05 PMIf they want to make hay while the sun shines and ride the pony to another championship they need to bring in a semi-experienced vet to backup Collaros. They were lucky he didn't miss any games this past season but chances are they won't be as lucky next season. Whether Zach misses 2 games or 6, a QB with previous CFL experience should be able to keep them in the hunt for a playoff spot while Zach recovers, maintaining a 50% record would be adequate. Strev. filled that role in 2019 when Nichols went down, hopefully they can find a known quantity good enough to manage the offence reasonably well instead of gambling on an unknown rookie to salvage their season.

Quote from: blue_or_die on December 20, 2021, 08:32:54 PMI don't disagree.Nichols knows the system and can dink & dunk us to .500 in a Collaros absence. Hot take, I know. Let the flaming begin, lol.I also don't see T-Hare playing for $150k. He has a legit shot to be a starter somewhere or at least play for it in a place that isn't blowing their load on a starting QB.

Can't see him going back to Edmonton. Perhaps he has a chance in Vancouver if Reilly retires or is released.The USFL reportedly isn't paying that much and waiting for a # 1 QB to go down is a crap shoot. Most of the starting QB's are potential free agents. None are going to sign for chicken feed so options are limited. Is any team going to sign Harris to be their starter over their current starter? I don't think so.He might choose retirement over a lesser role and pay cut.OTOH depending on recovery from injury problems the same could be said about Nichols or Reilly.
