    I dont like the man, but I dont detest him... yes I detest what he did, but I believe in 2nd chances.. but if this was to happen....

    Because I think Burris ends up in Hamilton, both Porter or Glenn could easily be had. McPherson might be available. Tillman would have options.

    The fact is the 100th Grey Cup is in Toronto and the Argos will be desperate to be there. Also, I don't think Milanovich is very high on Jyles. Nor should he be.

    And I think Tillman is.

    There's one huge difference here.

    We can't just pick up a Damon Allen to fill the hole left by Tracy Ham....they don't exist in today's CFL marketplace.
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    But why Ray? Only because Lulay and Calvillo aren't available?

    I never thought that we would ever trade J. D. either, but it happened . About 1962 ,IIRC. It was like someone ripped my heart out when Parker went to the Argos. While I would like more mobility at our QB position, you need a good QB to be successful . KJ is not the answer and it would be stupid to throw one of our young guys out as the starter next season.

    Because he is available.

    Don't kid yourself into thinking he is untradeable.

    I'd leave Boyd out of the deal. He is a bit injury prone. And the Argos would never deal Owens. There is nothing good in return for EDM from TO.

    If any deal happens, I think it may be a 3-team swap....

    When was the last time the Grey Cup wasn't one by one of the best pivot's playing in the league at the time?

    It's few and far between....

    I'd take any one of those 3 over Jyles. McPherson would be interesting.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think anyone is untradeable, however, I still feel that there are a few other QB's in the league, i.e. Pierce, Burris, and even Glenn that have had more recent success than Ricky, that should garner more attention as well.

    The fact that all the focus seems to be on Ray however, makes me cringe.
