TORONTO -- Scott Milanovich came to Anthony Calvillos defence Thursday. The Toronto Argonauts head coach said the media criticism Calvillo has endured this season is unfair and the veteran quarterbacks critics have been too quick to forget his many achievements in his 16 seasons with the Montreal Alouettes. "Ive had a hard time watching whats going on with Anthony, particularly the heat he has taken from the media," Milanovich told reporters in his news conference prior to Friday nights game with Calgary. "The guy is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and has held that organization on his shoulders for years and years. "I feel like its not fair to him. Thats from an outsider that at one point was his coach and even today still feels protective of him." Calvillo, who turns 41 on Friday, missed Montreals game Thursday night with B.C. due to a concussion suffered in Sundays 24-21 loss to Saskatchewan. Third-year veteran Josh Neiswandermade his first CFL star in Calvillos absence, but was replaced by rookie QB Tanner Marsh in the Alouettes 39-38 rally over the B.C. Lions on Thursday night. But the injury to Calvillo just adds to the challenge of whats been a season to forget so far for the struggling Alouettes (3-5). The six-foot-one, 200-pound Calvillo, in his 20th CFL season and pro footballs all-time passing leader, is sixth among league passers with 1,322 yards. Calvillo began the 2013 campaign with a career completion percentage of 62.5 per cent but this year has completed 115-of-196 passes (58.7 per cent) with six TDs and five inteerceptions.

. . Thats a far cry from Calvillos production the five previous seasons under former head coach Marc Trestman, now with the NFLs Chicago Bears, and Milanovich, who was Montreals offensive co-ordinator from 2008-11 before becoming Torontos head coach. Calvillo, a five-time CFL all-star and 10-time East Division selection, surpassed the 5,000-yard passing plateau three times over that span and in 08 had a career-high 43 TD passes. He also won two Grey Cups, two CFL outstanding player awards and was named a league all-star three times. This season, Montreals offence is ranked last in total yards (280 per game), passing yards (214.6), completion percentage (56.6) and second-last in scoring (22.3 points per game). New coach Dan Hawkins was fired after just five games and replaced on an interim basis by GM Jim Popp. But predictably a lot of the criticism for the Alouettes offensive woes this season has been directed at Calvillo. Milanovich earned two Grey Cup rings with Montreal before leading Toronto to a CFL championship last year. He said theres much more to appreciate about Calvillo than just his ability to play football. "I know what kind of person he is, what kind of man he is so I dont like to hear those sorts of things," Milanovich said. "As a friend, a concussion is always scary. "I dont know the specifics of how serious it was or how long hell be out or what his status was on the sidelines. I sent him a text this week (to say) I was thinking of him. Im always concerned for those guys." Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys
