Football Player

The Resume

    (October 22, 1979- )
    Attended Sacramento State University
    Quarterback for the Edmonton Eskimos (2002-03, 2005-11) and the Toronto Argonauts
    Grey Cup MVP (2005)

Why he might be annoying:

    His nickname is 'Frito-Ray.'
    He was inconsistent during the Eskimos 2005 playoff run and was pulled twice in favor of Jason Maas.
    He bolted to the New York Jets after leading the Eskimos to a Grey Cup title in 2003.
    He never made the Jets and spent the 2004 season on their practice roster.
    He didn't throw a touchdown pass for seven straight games (2005).
    The fans bitched for him to come back to the Esks in 2004 that when he finally came back, they were chanting for Jason Maas when he was in his slump.
    Some feel he only got the starting job cause Maas was too injury prone.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He's led the Eskimos to three Grey Cup appearances in four years.
    He has also given the Esks two Grey Cup rings in the past three years.
    His coach Danny Maciocia never gave up on him and under intense media scrutiny stuck with him in the Grey Cup game and he played his best game with a 38-35 victory over the Montreal Alouettes in overtime (2005).
    He used to be a truck driver for Frito-Lays in the off-season.
    He was part of the Eskimos quarterback-by-committee at the start of the 2002 season and played so well that he was named starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.
    He led the Eskimos to the Grey Cup Championship in his rookie season (2002).
