Could backfire very quickly as two 1st round picks were given to get Manziel.

 

And they already don't have their 2019 1st rounder either as it was used in the Supplemental Draft.  There's a narrow window where this could work for Montreal.  He needs to be good but not too good at the same time.  If he thrives, he'll look to go back to the NFL.  If he struggles, he's a very expensive gamble.  It's not like the other two players they picked up really move the needle either - they'll have to use a non-import spot on the offensive line now and while they had some ratio flexibility, they lost a big part of it by including Westerman in the deal.

Well, that debut was a memorable one for all the wrong reasons.  Hopefully, ownership won't be interfering with lineup composition anymore (there's no way an experienced coach would put a new QB in after four practices - this felt like a PR stunt to sell tickets above all else).

Just when things couldn't look any worse in Montreal with a potential owner pulling out over the Commissioner wanting to force Danny Maciocia on him with a 10-year contract, now the Als have fired Mike Sherman amidst reports of a mutiny around the team.  Khari Jones, the underwhelming offensive coordinator, takes over on an interim basis, presumably until an ownership group that's willing to work with Maciocia gets a deal done to buy the team.

It has been an eventful first six weeks or so of the season.  I don't mind Reed getting let go.  I will mind if Maciocia (who struggled badly as a GM) winds up being the replacement.  This cap circumvention scheme is a little worrisome though in terms of potential repercussions.  They already are out another couple of first rounders - if this winds up being serious, how many more are they going to lose.

What.  A.  Comeback.  Down 24 in the 4th quarter, the Alouettes pull off the 38-37 victory with Adams Jr. just heaving up throw after throw.  The defence basically quit in the first half and then stepped it up big time in the second half.  This has certainly been a more entertaining season thus far.
