Jeremiah Masoli continues to silence critics

There was a positive for the Tiger-Cats despite an 18-13 loss against the Roughriders.

Jeremiah Masoli tied a CFL record last night in Regina with his ninth straight 300-yard passing game.

He joins Sam Etcheverry and his former head coach Kent Austin in an exclusive club.

Masoli can set the record in two weeks, when they rematch the Roughriders at Tim Hortons Field following their bye week.

The 29-year-old took over as a full-time starter for the first time in his career on Labour Day, after the Tiger-Cats started off the season a disappointing 0-8.

Masoli finished the season 6-4, earning him an off-season contract extension and the starting quarterback job going into this season.

And he has proven he can handle it, even with the pressure of having former NFL quarterback and Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel sitting on the bench behind him.

Masoli entered Week 4 as the CFL’s leading passer with 1,045 yards, earning CFL top performer honours for the second straight week.

good for him, seems to have put it all together

Rusty Scalpel says:

A QB’s job is to win football games by throwing (or rushing) for touchdowns and not turning the ball over. Masoli failed on all three counts yesterday. This is not how you “silence” critics. Records and stats like Passing Yards are nice… but that’s it. W’s and TD’s are what count in the whole scoring thing that determines the Winners.
