REDBLACKS ROUT ALOUETTES 32-4

MONTREAL - Trevor Harris threw three touchdown passes as the visiting Ottawa Redblacks embarrassed the Montreal Alouettes 32-4 on Thursday to extend their winning streak to three games.

Harris went 32-for-41 passing for 343 yards and connected with Diontae Spencer, Josh Stangby and Greg Ellingson for the TDs.

Kicker Brett Maher added two field goals as Ottawa (4-6-1) took top spot in the Canadian Football League's East Division.

The Alouettes (3-7), third in the East, have now lost three games in a row.

Darian Durant threw for 140 yards and an interception for Montreal before being replaced in the third quarter by backup quarterback Drew Willy. The move came after Durant threw his league-leading 11th interception.

Willy, seeing his first real playing minutes of the season, went 5 of 8 for 68 passing yards.

Notes: Attendance at Percival Molson Stadium was 18,325. ... Als offensive tackle Jovan Olafioye (back) was a late scratch. ? Receiver Nik Lewis has at least one reception in 55 consecutive games.

Have to feel bad for Durant stuck on a team with much of its players having their glory days well behind them. Reed & Co. better hope for some young talent to emerge from the NFL cuts because boy are they in sad shape. They look like the pre- Chris Jones Riders of 2015.

Montreal's O-line is every bit as bad as Saskatchewan's was last year.

It's nice that everyone still makes excuses for Durant even when he's gone. He's not a good quarterback. Open your eyes! Durant can't do it all by himself (according to Durant)...give me a break.

Nope, I think Jones was pretty accurate in his assessment of Durant. Als fans will soon be of the same opinion.

WHAT...Feel bad for Durant? No way he wanted the money, he got it and he is showing he is NOT worth it. So glad that arrogant it is not my fault attitude is gone!!!

Right now I'm pretty sure behind Mr Darian Durants professionally forced calm demeanour. Is a raging personality that is signing under his breath " I WANT TO SWING FROM THE CHANDELIER"
As well as questioning himself on why the season opening football God's forsaken me?

MTL just isn't a good team, even Mike Reilly couldn't save them.

Durant had an opportunity to prove himself and silence his critics! He failed. He never was a top tier quarterback in this league! He performed with guts not talent! Moderate success, but not deserving of a paycheck that is a big hit to the team salary cap and the resulting limitations in recruiting talent at other positions! He was too stubborn to see that! He will end his playing career as a backup somewhere but not Montreal as they will all soon be fired!

Kind of makes Jones decision to release Durant intuitive, don't it? Would enjoy hearing from the Jones Hater Trolls on this current situation.
Waiting in anticipation.

Durant had another huge performance last night!!! He must still be grey cup bound... Right Alouettes fans?

There was absolutely nothing wrong with Chris Jones deciding he didn't want Darian Durant on his team, that's what coaches do.

What a bunch of you guys can't understand is the rest of us were upset with the 'bad-mouthing' Jones felt compelled to do when he dumped him. That's what people were upset about.

GMs don't degrade players when they release them, they thank them for their service and wish them well.

It's not about what was done, it's about the way it was done.

Career ending decision for Durant going to Montreal! His continued poor performance and interceptions will cause Montreal to dump him and spend the money to improve the team as a whole! The fans alone will force management to act!

Jones didn't sugar coat it! Durant thought he was worth big bucks! I like a coach who tells it like it is! Sorry ya'all so butt hurt!

Kavis aint gonna stick out the season with Durant as QB. His career over.

How did Jones bad-mouth him??
His exact quote was “He’s a life-long Rider,” Jones responded. “When you strictly look at Darian’s win-loss record, he’s been moderately successful. He’s won the one Grey Cup. He’s certainly a guy you can put out there if you surround him with great players that can lead you. Again, we want to try to secure him if we can, but we’re going to make the right business decision.”
That is a pretty fair assessment of a guy with a 58-54-1 regular-season record (and a winning percentage of 51.8) as a CFL starter.
