How many QB's have been on 6 game list this year. Has to be a dozen! Another reason why the CFL has been bad this year!

Drew Brees, Stafford, Romo, Cutler - the QB carnage also hits south of the border.

Like Darian and several others, a tackle didn't cause the injury. Maybe natural grass where possible is the answer. This wonderful new turf is killing our league.

The league has Austin by the short and curlys. He will pay whatever price has to be paid to get an experienced QB. It is the only way they win.
