Note: This podcast was recorded before the announcement that Vince Young had signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Though that makes our speculation on this podcast out of date, at least you can enjoy Os getting yet another prediction wildly incorrect.
Since the last episode of the RWB, the Toronto Argonauts have suddenly constructed a front office and coaching staff, with the cornerstones straight out of 2000s Montreal Alouettes lore: general managed Jim Popp and head coach Marc Trestman, the later most recently of the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears. Also aboard the Argo is Corey Chamblin, last seen in Saskatchewan Riders green.
With little to speak of in terms of player transactions and a couple weeks ahead of the CFL Combine, Joe and Os take a look at these reborn Alouettes in Toronto; is it too little, too late?
And here’s the genius part. Well before knowing of the Argonauts’ intentions, we scheduled a look at the 2010 Grey Cup for this week’s trip to Grey Cups past. Not only is this quite an edge-of-the-seat nail-biter of a game, it’s also the last championship win for the Alouettes, Popp or Trestman. One heck of a great game, and definitely one Montreal and Toronto fans will enjoy – if best missed by Roughriders fans.
