CFL Pass

Jonathon Jennings has arrived

One of the game’s great quarterbacks, Ricky Ray, is already holding a clipboard while watching Trevor Harris shine in Toronto; meanwhile, another of the league’s top stars in Travis Lulay could be watching Jonathon Jennings shine even when he recovers from injury.

Who’s Jonathon Jennings? Don’t say CFLpass didn’t tell you so! We ran this piece in June detailing the Saginaw Valley State grad’s potential.

Maybe it was a depleted Saskatchewan secondary or maybe Jennings is just that good…

Nice game, kid. Not only did he throw for four touchdowns but he also played receiver on another! With a convincing 46-20 home win for the Lions, they now own third place in the West and are currently preventing Montreal from crossing over for the final playoff spot.

Jennings has 645 passing yards and six touchdowns through the air over the past two games. Is there a reason the Lions should be putting Lulay back under centre even if or when he’s ready to go? The Lions had the lead for the three quarters in Edmonton last week and just finished crushing the Roughriders. Let the kid play the year out, I say.

As for the Green & White, they aren’t yet *mathematically* eliminated from the playoffs but they now need to win out while the Lions need to lose out. Judging by Jennings’ performance in this one, I think we can say the Riders are as done as dinner.
