Trevor Harris came in and led a comeback, overtime victory for Ottawa by completing 17 of 19 passes for 292 yards and three touchdowns. The 30-year-old will start in Montreal.

    Surprised Burris didn’t find a way to blame the opposition.

    Did he cry and whine to some reporter after the game??

    Now beware if Harris a good game and they decide to sit Hankie for a couple of more games…..

  2. So the seemingly indestructible Burris is sidelined with an injury to his pinky? How ironic!!

      Different year … different situation for injuries.

      Hopefully, it also applies to Gable and Collaros as well!

    If Harris has another lights out performance, Hank will be traded to Winnipeg by week three.

      I can see that, ZF.

      It will be interesting to see how loyal management is to Hankie should Harris become more effective over the next couple of games.

      If pinky man should get traded, you will see the same bitterness from him as when he departed Calgary and Hamilton, particularly if the next team brings him in as a backup.

      I’m not saying it can’t happen at some point … but I doubt Winnipeg at week three would offer enough.

      Last I heard, Hank’s contract was for sizeable $$$. The one advantage is that Winnipeg is one of the few teams Hank would have a shot at being a starter.

      Another question is whether Ottawa would be ready to make the move week three, particularly with the drop off Harris experienced at the end of last year. He had difficulty getting TDs, never mind what would have been needed had he faced a 300+ yard offense in the EDF.
