Not a big surprise. The Alouettes tried to remake the Mark Trestman experiment with a guy with no CFL experience, but it didn't work this time. Will Montreal be any good the rest of the year? Maybe, they still have a lot of talent (found by Popp).
Also doesn't Popp live full time in North Carolina? I thought I watched a TSN clip about him moving back there instead of keeping his family in Montreal.
