Moffat: Without a doubt, Als are Calvillo's team If Anthony Calvillo can pull off his plan to return for the last game of the 2013 regular season and lead the Alouettes to playoff success, an unlikely turning point may have been a pass completed to the most unlikeliest of receivers.A week ago in the bowels of Olympic Stadium, his concussion symptoms behind him, the future Hall of Famer picked up a football for the first time since Aug. 17 and threw a pass to the only guy in the room who has been around as long as AC has.Neiswander KnowsHe's lead the Als to back-to-back victories, but Josh Neiswander knows he'll be back on the sidelines once Calvillo returns to the lineup."When he gets healthy this is his team and I'll support that with all my heart.”Shorter in stature than Calvillo's preferred target over the past decade and a half, but having arrived in the same year as Ben Cahoon in 1998, head athletic therapist Rodney Sassi made the catch that started the most prolific passer in pro football history back on the road to recovery.On the morning the Als posed for their 2013 team portrait (the Montreal General Hospital would be a suitable backdrop given all their injuries), the 41-year old QB chucked a few passes across the locker-room to Jamel Richardson, himself thrilled to be rid of crutches for the first time in weeks after knee surgery.Healing Calvillo's brain has included everything from re-constructing his throwing to rebuilding his awareness of what happened the day Ricky Foley forced him to the turf in Regina.“I was sure the hit was to my forehead, because that's where the headache was,Cheap NFL Jerseys,” Anthony reveals. “I was sure it was head-on and I kept telling everyone that until I finally saw the hit again.”Calvillo was pressured from his left; his non-throwing arm awkwardly forced into his body and then knocked down with the back of his head striking the turf.In the weeks since, he's had treatments with Sassi to heal up what is now revealed to be a partially-torn rotator cuff. Ironically, he'd warned Josh Neiswander to be ready for a relief appearance, but the adrenaline was flowing until Foley forced the issue.“My shoulder was sore and now it's stiff, so just tossing the ball about 20 yards in the room I can start building up and this is part of the process,” he said.“We all realize football is a very physical sport. The fact that I've been playing so long, I've put my body through a lot,Wholesale NFL Jerseys,” he added.“Here I am at the end of my career you look at things a bit differently now maybe compared to when you're in the prime of your career.” Fan Poll If Anthony Calvillo returns in time for playoffs, does he make the Alouettes a Grey Cup contender? 1) Yes2) No View Results > Having backed up Calvillo for two years, Josh Neiswander is looking at things differently these days as well. He's settled into the starting role, after having lost it to Tanner Marsh – himself yet to resume throwing after a thumb injury placed the rookie on the 9-game injured list.Neiswander threw for a career high four touchdown passes in Edmonton last week, reaching a career-best 130 passer efficiency rating against the Eskimos (following up on games of 114 and 98), while posting back-to-back victories for the first time in his young CFL career.The players have talked about “being that team” that peaks at the right time and runs the table into the post-season. So could Neiswander really just flip the football back to Anthony and hand him the starting role for the last game of regular season and playoffs?“100 per cent,” says the humble Texan without hesitation. “He's the greatest Canadian Football player of all time. This is his team and we know that. I'm certainly well aware of that and I respect that to the utmost.”“When he gets healthy this is his team and I'll support that with all my heart.”Sounds like something Calvillo would say. I blitz Josh again with a re-ask.So if you've won five in a row by November, are running the table, there's no quarterback controversy?“None whatsoever,” he quipped.

A phrase Calvillo tosses around as routinely as he throws the slant or the out-route. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Neiwsander is not only walking the walk, he's talking the AC talk.Calvillo hopes to be running scout-team drills in practice the week the Als prepare for their road trip to face the Ticats in Guelph Oct. 26. All other things being equal, Neiswander gives back the reins for the finale against the Argos a week later.“The studies show that if you are symptom free you should be allowed to go out there and play,” says Calvillo matter-of-factly. “The one thing I've learned is your tolerance to take a hit might have gone down a bit.”“You always take a risk when you step on the football field, so for me, this is what I do and I don't know how much longer I'll do it for, but I'll feel very confident if the doctors give me the OK to step on the field this year.”Not that he's in denial.“The biggest thing I've learned is if you have one concussion and come back too early, then you can have some major issues down the road,” admits Calvillo. “That's something we just can't afford.”Without a doubt.
Irving: Plenty at stake for Bombers in season finale Let's leave, until next week at least, the speculation about what might happen to the Blue Bombers organizational structure.For now, suffice it to say, the Bombers will have one goal in mind when they close out their trying year Saturday against Hamilton at Investors Group Field. And that will be to end the season with a victory.Blue Bomber head coach Tim Burke says preparations for Saturday's game will be no different than normal. And he has told the players "this is the last time we will be together as a group of players and coaches, some of you won't be back, for some of you this could be the final game of pro football you ever play. So let's end it with the good feeling that a victory brings."Burke can't complain about the effort he has received in the last three games. His team has been very competitive, fighting right to the finish and showing the kind of spirit that all coaches look for. The latter part of a season like this can be a time for players to "open the eyes" of their employers. And some of that is definitely taking place in Winnipeg. Related Links Bombers unsure if Hall will start Heading into their final game of the season, the Bombers might be without starting QB Max Hall, who is nursing a hip pointer suffered last week against Toronto. More from Bob Irving Buy: 101st Grey Cup Playoff Tickets Mike Sims-Walker is a receiver who joined the Blue Bombers two months ago. He has been sitting on the practice roster waiting for a chance. 10 days ago against the Toronto Argonauts, Sims-Walker finally got into the lineup, and he turned in a spectacular performance, catching 8 passes for 137 yards.Sims-Walker put up solid numbers in two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars before injuries and salary issues forced him out of the NFL. Now, at 28 years of age, he has a chance to extend his career north of the border, and if first impressions are lasting, Sims Walker could be a key member of the Bombers 2014 team.Another receiver, Wallace Miles, spent nearly the entire season on the practice roster. We were left to wonder what the Bombers saw in him. We found out last Thursday in Toronto,Cheap NFL Jerseys, as Miles caught 6 passes for 100 yards and looked like a keeper.At the every least he earned himself an invitation to next year's training camp. Defensive lineman Mike McAdoo, and offensive tackle Jarvis Jones are among the others who have made enough of an impression to earn a chance to compete for work in 2014.Coaches and players hate it when games are referred to as "nothing games".Saturday's clash has no bearing on the final standings for either team, but it is safe to say that for many of the players, especially a lot of them on the Bombers, there is definitely "something" at stake.As Burke likes to say "football people are always watching."
