The Montreal Alouettes have certainly had their issues at quarterback since Anthony Calvillo called it quits almost four years ago but as former Als’ pivot Vernon Adams rightly points out, some of it is of their own doing.
After TSN’s Moe Khan tweeted out a list of the quarterbacks who have started for Montreal since Calvillo retired, Adams responded with an astute observation.
Me & Crompton the only ones to win 3 ina row.. but that's the only opportunity I got 🤷🏽♂️

Adams won all three games he started for Montreal in 2016, beating the Riders, Stampeders and Ticats. The young pivot served as the backup to Darian Durant in seven games last season before the Alouettes traded him to Saskatchewan. Adams is the third-string and short yardage and goal line quarterback for the Riders.
At the moment, Adams has more starting experience than any quarterback the Alouettes currently have under contract for 2018.
