CFL Quarterbacks: Money Well Spent?

We are getting into the meaty part of the 2014 CFL season. This season more than ever has shown that the quarterback position is still the most valuable on any team.  To compete with the top dogs in either division, you need a stellar starting quarterback.

Ottawa Redblacks v Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Redblacks Create Capital Excitement

The Ottawa Redblacks may have overtaken the Saskatchewan Roughriders as the unofficial second favourite team of most CFL fans.  New stadium, new players, even a new name has launched Ottawa out in front as the feel-good story of Canadian football so far this season.
