For those that dismiss the CFL, the list of NCAA/NFL elite that have come and failed is lengthy. Chris Leake was a 4th string, Ricky Williams averaged 3 yards a carry, Eric Crouch was...well, Eric Crouch, Rashaun Woods couldn't even make a team out of camp (tried with 4 different teams), Lawrence Philips lasted one season and did nothing and Andre Rison was mediocre at best.
What's even more comical is TSN calling O'Sullivan "young talent"
Lawrence Philips had 1,022 yards, 13 touchdowns, made the all star team and took his team to the Greg Cup. He may be one of the worst human being ever but he did not "do nothing" in his one year.
Ricky Williams ran for 526 yards on 109 carries which is not 3 ypc but 4.8 ypc.
Andre Rison was 37 when he went to the CFL, if anyone was expecting much out of him at that point, the aren't very bright.
Eric Crouch was expect to compete for a starting job, problem was injury's not ability.
