Darian Durant Retires

Recommended Posts

I don’t really get what the big deal is about not having a backup with experience. Were we in good shape last year with a backup with experience in Lefevour when Nichols went down? People go on and on about how the Bombers have only question marks behind Nichols but that’s true of every team in the league outside of BC,Toronto and Edmonton. Not saying the Ross or Streveler are necessarily the answers but I’d be shocked if they weren’t any worse than the options for two thirds of the league.

I think it's the trauma from years past in which our backups were forced to play behind a crap o-line and with limited talent at rb/wr,    It's way more likely that these guys can succeed since the o-line will actually give them a chance to look at a 2nd read and it also helps having guys like Harris who can give us many 2nd and short situations.    

Unless these guys play completely moronic like Boltus then they should be able to move the ball around.

Time to let this thread die.

In the long run Durant has done the Bombers a favor. The remainder of his money may have been the difference in signing Bighill, and down the road Bombers will be further ahead if one of the rookie backups develops this year.

So I assume Durant doesn't make your Bombers legends wall?

He absolutely does....

If by Durant, you mean headshot photo.

And by legends wall, you mean the inside of a urinal to be mitterated upon... then yes.

A couple of people have suggested this thread should be closed / die.   There is absolutely zero reason to lock this thread.

If you are done with the conversation, don't read it anymore.  It is as simple as that.  When the community is done discussing a topic it will shuffle down the list to die with all of the other threads that have run their course.

Mods don't direct what topics are discussed.  They enforce the rules of the board to try to keep the discussion civil.  A thread is usually only locked when it has gone way off the rails or someone has resurrected a really old thread.

I would never be part of a forum where the mods dictated when a topic can be discussed and not ... just because a few think it shouldn't be discussed anymore.

In that case...
