Robertson Off to BC

And the news just keeps rolling in.

The BC Lions announced earlier today that they have signed former Argo Running Back Jamal Robertson to a contract.

This is a big loss for the Argos. The lone bright spot in their otherwise horrendous 2009 season was Robertson, who became the first Argo RB to rush for over 1,000 yards since Michael Jenkins in 2001.

Robertson's exit creates a huge hole in the Argos offense. Look at their roster: they have four QBs who have never started a CFL game (three of which have never played in any CFL game, period), and now they have next to nobody to run the football for them. The only RBs they have with any CFL experience are Jeff Johnson and Bryan Crawford, neither of whom can be relied on to be the bell-cow back. The Argo offense is just putrid. In fact, outside of Jeremaine Copeland, the Argos really don't have a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball. But even then, what good is a WR when you have no one to throw him the football? Looks like it could be another long season in Argo Land.
