Rouge Radio, the weekly CFL podcast Show 4

After being spurned by Zach Collaros, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers were a likely destination for veteran quarterback Henry Burris, but the upstart Ottawa RedBlacks swooped in with a massive offer and nabbed him from the grasp of the blue and gold.

Initial reports say Burris signed for $450,000 + bonuses per season. Is he worth the price, and where do the Winnipeg Blue Bombers turn to now at the quarterback position?

Saskatchewan Roughriders coach Corey Chamblin has been named the 2013 CFL Coach of the Year, earning 39 of 59 first-place votes. An award voted on for regular season success has taken on a Grey Cup trend the past eight years. Is it a post-season award, or merely a coincidence?

After acquiring veteran DB Korey Banks in a trade from the BC Lions, GM Kyle Walters and the Blue Bombers parted ways with Canadian linebacker Henoc Muamba who is on his way to the National Football League. Has the initial optimism worn off in Winnipeg, or are they still in an okay position to move forward in the off-season?

One week after Anthony Calvillo hung up the cleats, Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Kerry Joseph has elected to retire as well. We look back on the career of Joseph and the leadership he brought to each of the four CFL organizations he was a member of.

Zach Collaros has been let out of his contract with the Toronto Argonauts in order to pursue a new deal ahead of the February 15th free agency period. Where will he end up, and what can he bring to a team in need of a starting quarterback.

The Edmonton Eskimos have announced their coaching staff and it is full of former coaches of the Toronto Argonauts. How will the familiarity with ex-Argos defensive coordinator and now Eskimos head coach Chris Jones help the Eskimos gain ground in teaching their philosophies to the roster in 2014.

Despite having fully recovered from a concussion in 2013, Calgary Stampeders offensive lineman Dimitri Tsoumpas has elected to retire at the prime age of 28. The three-time CFL all-star cited the concussion as a factor in his decision, not wanting to risk further damage. Is he the first in a potential long line of players to follow this path?

On the latest episode of Rouge Radio, Tyler is joined by our guest co-host Andrew Deutschmann to talk about the life and times of Anthony Calvillo’s career in the Canadian Football League, and reflect back on some of his finer moments in the league. There was one team in particular that Calvillo always had his struggles with – who usually got the best of him, and how did they do it? Where do the Montreal Alouettes go next at the quarterback position, and what does the future look like in Montreal now that the most prolific passer in CFL history has stepped aside?
