The suggestion that the Riders should replace starting quarterback Kevin Glenn with Brandon Bridge for this Sunday's home game against the BC Lions borders on the ridiculous and shouldn't make it above the white noise category around workplace water coolers.
Bridge responded admirably last Saturday in BC by coming off the bench to toss a pair of touchdown passes with the Riders trailing 30-0 in the fourth quarter. But Head Coach and GM Chris Jones while complimenting the Canadian QB for his mobility and poise when pressed into service, was quite correct in pointing out in the final analysis, it was two plays, one of which included a circus catch against a group of second-stringers on defense.
There is a reason Glenn ranked sixth on the CFL's all-time passing list. A better case could be made for Brandon to be a "Bridge" to the future if the Riders were hopelessly out of the playoff picture.
There are two upcoming games against 4-and-2 Winnipeg, with a cross-over post season position pending. But that window could close soon if the Riders don't starting winning with much more frequency.
