It’s like a scene from Ground Hog Day.
Riders VP of football ops, GM and head coach Chris Jones had said it before – and said it again after Friday’s 30-7 win over Calgary: Kevin Glenn is Saskatchewan’s starting quarterback.
Glenn’s leadership ability and more so his comfort level in having a shorter leash may be factoring in to Jones’ decisions of who’s the start and when to make a change.
It makes sense. Glenn has been in this league for 17 seasons. Glenn has had his ups and downs, and is comfortable with the arrangement.
The encouraging news for Rider fans is that Brandon Bridge realizes there is room for improvement. A 53 per cent completion ratio and throwing two interceptions will lead to losing football more than winning football.
The message to the fans and media members appears to be that more than just stats go in to the decision to have Glenn remain as starter.
The message to Chris Jones is this: To ask who is starter is, is a legitimate question. The media won’t stop asking, and the fans won’t stop wondering.
