Collaros listed as No. 1 QB on Riders depth chart, Jones still mum

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have listed Zach Collaros as the No. 1 quarterback on their depth chart but that doesn’t mean Collaros is the starter according to head coach Chris Jones.

“We’ll see, we’ll see,” Jones said with a wry smile on his face. “They know what their roles are and they know exactly how things are going to work out.”

Regina Leader-Post beat writer Murray McCormick asked if not naming a starting quarterback is going to be a trend all season long.

“We’ll just have to go and see if we declare a starter one week or the other,” Jones said. “By the way, Zach will start for us on the defensive line.”

Jones has known who the starting quarterback will be for two weeks.

    Leave em guessing , the players know who is starting

  2. Really hope Chris Jones isn’t dumb enough to try and rotate two QBs throughout games.

    What a terrible idea that “strategy” is.

    • May not be a “plan” as much as a necessity ? I know you’re a big Collaros supporter, and believe me, I hope he regains what he had. But if not, why not put Bridge in ?

    • He already did it last year and it was a disaster. Who can forget him pulling Glenn out for Bridge and costing them game one against Winnipeg?

      • Don’t know what you’re talking about. Must have forgot about that one

        • Yup- I’m pretty sure game one was against Montreal. I was at that game, I should know. Adam is just another loser trying to troll.
          There is a big difference between Glenn and Collaros. About 10 years difference lol

          • Ya – he was chirping on one of the many Rider threads earlier today. It was so insightful that it got removed.

      • Good old Adam making stuff up again. That’s cute!

      • It was against montreal not Winnipeg

  3. Jones is playing the media.

  4. zc got a $225,000 signing bonus a total of $470,000 in “hard cash” WHO DO YOU THINK WHO WILL START its not an issue Jones is playing a mind game that all …..microphone drop

    And by Zack starting on defensive line he meant Zack Evans. Good one Jonesy you’re playing them like a fiddle!

    Who said switching QBs didn’t work seemed to work when Glenn was throwing the ball away and Bridge stepped in game after game. Just look at last years eastern final. Bridge has stepped in on some bad point deference and came up on top.

  7. I can’t imagine who Jones thinks he’s fooling with this charade! Guess he thinks the other coaches in the league are clueless.

    Great strategy. Great tactics. Media gobbling it up.
    Dopey fans commenting here.
    Players and coaches know who will start.

  9. Collaros will be starting, just hope that Jones doesnt pull him right away if things dont go right. Will need a bit of time with a new team
