    The Ricky Ray trade is the gift that keeps on giving.

    Jyles may be a valuable backup. May look good in an Als uniform. But his starting days are over, I would think.

    If Jyles wants to continue in football he's left with the Arena League or coaching I would guess.

    I think he will stillplay in the CFL but as a backup. What he should have been doing all along.

    iso is correct . . . there's always a market for a dumb, athletic backup QB with a canon arm!

    Montreal might take him to backup Q Porter and be their sacrificial plunger on 2nd or 3rd and short situations!!!

    But I wouldn't trust Jyles with a legit CFL offense. . . just not enuf thinkin' power....

    I don't think it's brainpower but an uncontrolable arm. The guy can't put any touch on it.

    He also comes across as a guy who doesn't give a you know what when he isn't playing well. He has the Damon Allen persona which a lot of fans mistook as an I don't care attitude. The only difference is Allen won 3 Grey Cups & was the CFL's leading passer until AC overtook him. Jyles can only dream.

    Sometimes a robotic and stoic personality is a mask for incompetence. I'd say thats the case for Jyles. Flash's point about having an uncontrollable mega-arm is also valid. Combined with the guy going off-script too much he's a pain for most coaches.

    If he wants to work in the CFL he'll have to take a massive pay cut and start off as a 3.

    Calgary has a robotic, semi-stoic guy named Glenn but for the most part Glenn is a disciplined on-field warrior who's limitations go more to his tiny stature (5'8.5") and limited running threat than to his head & accuracy.

    Jyles might be ideal coming off the bench for some team like Hamilton or BC if the starting QB is injured or struggling. Give the opposition a different look. And it can work sometimes. See the Bomber - Lions game from 2010. Bombers were down by 17 points I think and Jyles comes in the fourth quarter and leads the team to a victory in overtime. In a way, Jyles performance in that game led to the demise of Casey Printers who was released immediately afterwards and hasn't been heard from since.

    I think that's really all Jyles is good for at this point though. A relief pitcher so to speak or short term starter if the QB is injured for a game or two. Can't see him as a long term injury replacement at QB like Glenn was for Tate this past season. That would probably be a disaster.[/align]
