Dan is the man this week

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

For the third game in a row, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have named a different starting quarterback.

After Zach Collaros got concussed by Odell Willis in Edmonton earlier this month, and Jeremiah Masoli lost his first career CFL start in Calgary, the Cats are handing the ball to Dan LeFevour.

This is LeFevour’s third season in the league, but was Henry Burris’ understudy for the last couple of years in Hamilton.

Interestingly enough, LeFevour will be facing off against Hank this Saturday night when the Ticats host the Ottawa RedBlacks.

The 27-year-old LeFevour has the physical tools to be successful.

The 6-3, 230 pounder from Central Michigan is the only player in NCAA history with 12,000 career passing yards and 2,500 career rushing yards.

But at this level, he’s only seen short yardage duty or some relief time.

So the question has to be asked, can he get the job done?

I like Dan’s chances because the team has played better in each game, the defence especially, and these guys are due.

Ottawa is not going to roll over, but I think Hamilton breaks its donut in the win column Saturday.

Comments

  1. I hope Dan can do well Saturday.
    I blame the coach and all of his assistants for not having this team playing better. The execution and the lack there of have placed Coach Austin”s decision to cut Burris free and go with a still unproven leader very suspect. From What I have seen this team will struggle to be 9 and 9 this season.
    Frustrated!
