  1. It’s about time. Glenn hasn’t been the same since his injury. Nice to see we can atleast compete with Bridge in there

    • I think he’s just not equipped to deal with a lot of pressure. He’s not very big and or mobile. He’s played great for us this year and won a lot of games for us, but in certain situations he can be shut down … but those are situations that Bridge IS equipped to deal with. He is big and mobile and he can run, or roll out and pass, or simply escape and pass, a lot more easily than Glenn. I would still start Glenn for the rest of the year. He’s the seasoned vet and our leader, and an excellent QB overall, but if teams start getting pressure on him and shutting him down we can now turn to … Air Canada!

  2. Tell me again the League isn’t helping Toronto. No pass interference on that call but last week was, total BS

    This Bridge kid is good way better then Glenn! When I found out he was starting against my Cats instead of Glenn I was more worried. For good reason he played good not great but better then Glenn would have. He is strong fast and has a great arm! His decision making is getting better if I’m Sask. he is my new starter because he will give you the chance to win a grey cup.

  4. I have nothing against Glenn but his timing was off and the Toronto D was swarming. Needed a mobile QB and finally Jones made the call before the 3 or 4th quarter.

    Hey, I called this weeks ago. Glen is on the way out as Jones will seek to trade him because of his salary.

      How much do you think glenn is making? Add up all 3 of our QB’s salaries, and that amount is still less than most teams starting QB salary. Pretty lame donkey, even for you.
