  1. Nope. I just don't think it's anywhere near remotely as bad as a certain poster has tried to claim in this thread.
  2. I was simply pointing out an instance where he was under the tutelage of another OC and didn't fare well. It's not a matter of it being all LaPolice's fault Streveler has struggled as a passer.
  3. Some? He had two "good" games as a passer to start the 2018 season and struggled as a starter ever since. A decent game here and there in 2019 doesn't gloss that over, either. His 81.8 passer rating in the CFL over 35 games demonstrates his inability as a passing QB. Chris Streveler is a ******* legend around here, which is undebatable. He'll go down in local Blue Bombers lore for his grit, tenacity, and other intangibles as a member of this team, but none of that should blind you from the fact he leaves quite a bit to be desired as a pure passing QB. And at 27 years old, it's not unreasonable to think that may not change. Then look at his game tape with the Cardinals. You want to blame LaPolice yet again (quelle surprise) but Streveler struggled as a passer under another OC all the same. He suited up for 7 games in the NFL and his passer rating is 39.3, so trying to pin the blame on your favourite CFL bogeyman is laughable. And claiming he's a better passer than Fajardo is nothing more than complete fanboy drivel. Be better.
  4. He's 27 years old. I don't think the verdict is still out on Streveler on what he brings to the table.
  5. Covidiots: You can't trust Pfizer with their vaccine! Also covidiots: Is Pfizer's new treatment available?
  6. His QBR in 2021 was phenomenal at 111.0, even if he didn't put up gaudy passing yards. He was a factor in the success of team but not the only factor, IMO. FWIW, I'd rank the defense first in terms of overall impact to the success of the 2021 season.
  7. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/manitoba-cabinet-premier-heather-stefanson-1.6318914 Oooh, a cabinet shuffle. Surely, this will help get things in order...
  8. I don't see how. The team was able to build a balanced roster, which allowed Collaros to flourish behind the best O-line in the game. Collaros has no doubt earned a raise for his MOP season and second straight championship in 2021. He had a stellar cast to help him accomplish both achievements, though. The sophomore performances of Lawler and Bailey, Demski being a clutch performer, and a running game by committee - just to name a few. If recent history is any indication, QBs like Reilly and Mitchell taking exorbitant raises a few years ago in free agency - at the cost of roster balance - hasn't aged well.
