Calvillo and Kerrigan are the only QBs on the roster. If Dunnigan signs
with BC, as is likely, there really isn't anyone else worth signing.
Allen, Bell and Austin are all available but they are really no better
than Calvillo. The Cats would be best to look at signing on a promising
rookie to develop and go with Calvillo, who has one of the strongest arms
in the CFL. And this year he will have some very fast receivers to throw
to in Marcus Grant and Jason Phillips. If Earl Winfield is re-signed, and
that doen't look good unfortunately, the Cats will have an outstanding
receiving corps, especially with Marc Cody and Phillips at SB. If Earl's
not back, then Cody will be the other WR with probably Barry Rose at SB.
If Calvillo can cut down on the interceptions, he could be the best QB in
Hamilton since Dieter Brock was here.
The one question I have is:
Will there be 3 QBs on CFL teams this year or will most teams opt for
just two? Will a team give up a spot for a 3rd QB when you only have 36
players? Can the 3rd QB be the Designated Import and if so, will this
mean any QB replaced by the DI be out for the rest of the game? Anyone
have any ideas or thoughts on this?
