Although Colt Brennan is the most known QB of the bunch the facts are he has not played a football season since '09. He also knows very little about the CFL as he never expected to be here especially after signing a 1.8 million dollar deal with the Redskins and made the 53 man roster as a rookie.
Drew Willy has been primed to be a Canadian QB since his days at U Buffalo where he took them from one of the worse NCAA DI schools to the International Bowl his senior year. Willy was a 4 year starter at Buffalo but his sophmore year would change the fortune of his career forever. Turner Gill former Montreal Concordes starting QB came in as Head Coach. Gis carrer in the CFL with the Montreal concordes was cut short as concussion forced his retirement. In Willy's Junior year Gill routh in Danny Barrett a 17 year CFL vet all star QB who was head coach of the Riders from 2000-2006. Gill and Barrett both recognizing his skill set Immediately started grooming him to be a CFL QB.
Willy has also had two two successful seasons in '10 and '11 as a back up QB. In 2010 Willy was the backup to Tim Rattay of the UFL's L.V. Locos. In 2011 Willy spent the entire training camp with the Jets before being released on final cut. He was Immediately signed by the Chargers to their practice squad where he would remain their for the rest of the season as their third QB. Although he did not get into a game he spent a full training camp and a full season in the NFL building upon his experience as a Pro QB from the 1010 season where he attended the entire camp and season with the Loco's. Two years of very valuable experience he is now primed to step into the #2 spot behind Duriant and eventually become the starer in the near future. It could not have been planned out any better for Willy to be a successful starting QB in the CFL

It wasn't Colt Brennan because that pathetic loser didn't even make it to the first preseason game before he was reunited with his BFF: THE WAIVER WIRE. Mahalo.....
