If the team adhere to O’shea’s public comments and Chris Streveler were to become Winnipeg’s starting quarterback in Week 1, I believe it would be the first time a player straight out of college has started at QB for a CFL team to open a season since 1994 when CFL Hall of Famer Anthony Calvillo started for the expansion Las Vegas Posse. Calvillo went 12 of 28, 170 yards, 3 TDs & 0 INT’s in the Posse’s 32-26 win over Sacramento. Not to mention he had a pretty good career too. The Bombers sure wouldn’t mind Streveler emulating that!
