Where do you begin with Anthony Calvillo?

For the seventh time in his brilliant career AC threw for over 5,000 yards. No one has ever done that before! He has thrown 449 touchdowns, second in pro football only to Brett Favre's 508. That's a crazy number. He played las year with a non-throwing shoulder that needed surgery for most of the season and was one dropped touchdown pass from advancing to the Grey Cup for the ninth time.

Anyhow, I bet Dan Hawkins is happy he's starting his CFL career with AC as his QB. I can guarantee that!

New coach, new system, new contract, same old Anthony! Love it...

The Als' signing of Quinton Porter was a smart move as Adrian McPherson is/was no longer in the picture. 

I really like what I know and have seen from third year QB Josh Neiswander. He's been doing things right, soaking in all he can from AC and Marc Trestman the last two years, and when the chance comes I expect him to shine and perform at a high level.

Tanner Marsh is a big kid from Arkansas Tech who's fighting for a roster spot.
