    Interesting that the Eskimos matched the Lions offer and Reilly still said no thanks. Speaks volumes of what he thinks of our **** show. If he really loved Maas the way we were told, no way he leaves for identical money.

    You mean there's someone who didn't know this already?

    His family is closer to B.C. Can’t blame him.

    Nonsense. This is all about family and location.

    Really torn on Reilly. I'll miss the person and community figure, that's for sure. But I definitely won't miss the second half-dry spells that we saw in 2017 and 2018.

    (Mind you, that might be more Maas... :help: )

    As much as I regret his leaving, I have some misgivings about giving a 34 year old QB $700K a year. It's a ton of money in such a small cap league.

    This sucks. What do we have at QB now?

    I generally agree, but there is literally no risk for BC unless the players somehow get guaranteed contracts in the next CBA.

    Unless he’s getting 2.5M of it upfront as a signing bonus... then I’m not sure the owner would approve of cutting him even if his performance declines.

    Wife and kids live in Seattle, his off-season home, during the season, apparently. Didn't know that, learned it just recently with all the TSN hoopla going on.

    Further, his parents live in Wenatchee, WA, and drove up for every freaking home game. Something like 8 hrs drive there and back 9x per year, for what - 5 seasons?

    I'm as inclined to go hard on the Eskimos and Oilers as the next guy (generally because both fully deserve it), but in the end, this has less to do with franchise dysfunction and more to with a guy that wants to be around his family.

    And the hits he's taken over the years...dude is tough, no doubt. But does that body hold out given all the running he does?

    Don't get me wrong - I'd have preferred he stay here. But there's legit concern for how a 34-38 yr old body will deal with another 4 seasons.

    Exactly he’s not like Tom Brady who get sacked like ten times a year. He’s a gritty QB. Could be a massive anchor in the near future..... Or he could win more grey cups.

    We are losing what good we had and are keeping the suck. We lose MR and DW and somehow we are still stuck with Maas? It’s like they don’t want anyone coming to the games. This management is worse than the Oilers. You gotta work pretty hard to be worse than that.

    There is literally no reason to follow this team anymore, other than civic pride and they have already cashed that chip years ago.

    This. He is on the decline. Couldn't move the ball in the second half the last 2 years. Has never learned to look off a receiver .

    His eloquence and charm has masked his deficiency as a QB

    Time to move on.

    Maas. I have never seen such bad play calling in my life.

    Looks like the EE machine is firing up and is going on the Reilly sucks now argument to save face.

    Some may buy that deceptive crap.

    It is weird how Reilly started “declining” when Maas took over as coach. Wonder what changed.
