Former 49ers QB Cody Pickett getting another chance to start this week

He's getting his first start since last season on Friday after starter Kerry Joseph (former Seahawks safety) and Toronto got shut out 25-0 in Montreal.

If you think being shut out in football is embarassing...how about being shut out in a league that averages over 50 points per game and all you have to do is kick the ball in to the endzone for a single point.

Looks like Toronto should've held on to Arland Bruce III

Other Argo/Niner connections include:

Jamal Robertston
Willie Middlebrooks

Kerry Joseph actually isnt that bad. He was MVP 2yrs ago when Saskatchewan won the Grey Cup. He had over 4000+ passing and 700+ rushing and 37 TD's... He just isnt being used properly by the coaching staff in T.O.. He also played QB in college and was converted to safety in the NFL
The Argo's have Reggie McNeil on the roster too, who started over Vince Young in highschool but Reggie's been converted to a WR
I hope he does well. He has limited upside, but he gives it his all.

Ricky Williams was terrible in the CFL lol

His style didn't cater to the Canadian running game where it's about speed and 6-7 yards per carry. You're not looking to wear down a defense with a big back because with only 3 downs, you're basically wasting a possession with a 3 yards run
25 of 40 for 326 yards and a TD

What an ugly, ugly final play if you're a Toronto Argonauts fan. I hope Pickett does well up there. He's a gamer and he gives it his all.

I see them sporadically in those 600 to 670 channels. Sometimes I will be recording something in the middle of the night and a CFL game will be playing instead.
Now this post makes no sense.
