  1. We lost JFG to free agency when he signed with Ottawa in 2018. He didn't do much there and was released last August. I remember him making a few clutch grabs for the Bombers when he was here. I agree with you on Petermann - hope we use him more! And then we've got Woli who re-upped.
  2. I'd put Nichols on the same career trajectory as Travis Lulay: the injuries pile up and eventually you settle for backup status. If you compare Lulay's CFL stats to Nichols they're pretty similar. Both had multiple seasons where they missed a bunch of games due to injury. To me, Lulay was more mobile and effective with his feet and showed better escapability. Nichols TD to INT percentage looks to be slightly better, after all he is the Game Manager. But the comparison is pretty close. Suggests Nichols may have 2 more years in the CFL, depending on whether he can throw the ball at this level following his shoulder injury: https://www.cfl.ca/players/travis-lulay/114942/ https://www.cfl.ca/players/matt-nichols/157693/
  3. Loved watching him play in Blue & Gold - such an exciting, dynamic player. Hope he gets a real chance to show his skills down south.
  4. Answering my own question .... I guess Dave Dickenson was the last QB to start in the CFL and then get a nod from the NFL. His NFL stats: 2001 SD 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 2002 SEA 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 2002 MIA 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 2002 DET 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0
  5. Who was the last QB to start his pro career in Canada and subsequently signed as a QB in the NFL? Jeff Garcia? Farhan Lalji says as many at 8 NFL teams interested in Chris Streveler, sounds like he's as good as gone: https://www.tsn.ca/cfl/video/nfl-workout-watch-qb-chris-streveler~1873125
  6. What's the status of Nichols throwing shoulder, anyone? Is he throwing with velocity yet? To me, he's always had a bit of a noodle arm and now the shoulder is an unknown post-surgery QB shoulder. I thought I read somewhere he may not be ready for TC. Man, if we lose Strev to the NFL there are going to be lots of question marks around the QB prospects here in 2020. Might have to dust off Buck.
  7. Chris Streveler named South Dakota's Sports Celebrity of the Year: https://rapidcityjournal.com/sports/chris-streveler-nash-hutmacher-among-the-state-s-top-ahtletes/article_3e85e6ed-56e7-5c5c-b190-10ade1e1524d.html
  8. Very happy to see Johnny Augustine extended. Didn't think it would happen. Hopefully he gets to carry the rock plenty in 2020.
  9. So, Collaros to Winnipeg and Nichols to Ottawa then? I'd be OK with that as long as we can get Streveler signed long-term here too. I'd also be OK with MBT and Strev TBH.
  10. Dunk says Streveler could get NFL looks https://3downnation.com/2019/12/04/bombers-qb-chris-streveler-viewed-by-nfl-teams-as-having-taysom-hill-ability/
  11. That's an interesting take but Willy was way over-rated as a QB and the early wins the team got with him at the helm were largely due to stellar ST and D. So it wasn't that Lapo ruined Willy - he just wasn't that good to begin with. Pure pocket passer with a crappy O-line is a recipe for failure. With Nichols, I think Lapo designed the offence around Nichols capabilities, which are average and journeyman at best. That's why the focus for us turned to the running attack. When Collaros came in we finally had a QB with some escapability and so you saw a more balanced attack and good distribution to all receivers getting more balls thrown their way. Comes down to Lapo tweaking things to match the talent level at the key QB postiion.
  12. No one knows if Nichols is healthy enough to play football or if his shoulder injury will allow him to play at the necessary level. That uncertainty means no team will likely offer him the starting QB money he earned this year. Also, the only way Strev will re-sign here is with a big pay bump. So I guess if they split the QB pay envelope at $250-$300k each it is possible, as you say, that we will see Nichols-Streveler in 2020. Really hoping we get to see what McGuire has too. Big question mark if we go with Buck Pierce as OC though.
  13. I could see Matt Nichols as Redblacks QB if he can still throw a football after that shoulder injury.
