Ahman Green runs to Canada

Ahman Green is taking the football road less traveled.

He had a successful NFL career in Green Bay and a short run with the Texans before heading to Omaha and the UFL last year.  Next up: The Montreal Alouettes.

TSN in Canada reports that Green has agreed to terms with Montreal, although the move may not be announced until March when Green’s UFL contract ends.   The news is framed from the perspective that the Alouettes may now part ways with 2009 Grey Cup MVP Avon Cobourne.  True story: we remember Cobourne.

We don’t have much else to say except enjoy the poutine,  Ahman!

  1. The poutine is good, I’ll give you that, but Ahman should make sure he hits up Schwartz’s Deli. Best sandwich on Earth!

    Oh, and good luck up there Ahman.

  2. As a Montrealer, i’ll be glad to welcome him. I hope he leads us to our second straight Grey Cup victory.

    Everyone thinks the CFL is the minor leagues, but truth is our Alouettes can very easily beat the NFL’s Panthers, Bills and Browns…

  3. I can’t believe I wasted a 1st round fantasy draft pick on this clown no more than 3 years ago. Nice to see our lil sister to the norths football league is still going strong though. Without meaningless college dropouts, 40 year old NFL retirees and ex XFL players Canada would be forced to ice fish 12 months out of the year. Your welcome EH!!!

  4. @witthecraam, the Panthers, Bills and Browns are our minor league! We have college teams that are better than them or any Canadian team for that matter. Stick to hockey, we’ll never come close to you guys there.

    Is that because they get 12 players?

  6. I hope Green pulls a Doug Flutie and becomes a god in Canada.

    @wutthecra#man: Virtually every CFL player wishes he was playing in the NFL. The CFL an inferior league. Not saying that to be cruel. Just stating a fact.

    The CFL tries to make up for it by having different rules that encourage a more wide open game, but the talent level just isn’t the same.

    I would like to see the NFL pick up the CFL rule that any kickoff resulting in a touchback earns 1 point.

  7. johnelwayismydad You must be a republican with a small and ignorant brain.

    I wish you well Ahman!

  8. No cfl team would beat an NFL team(even the panthers) with American rules. No college team would beat a cfl team, maybe a college all-star team could… Hard to say how he will do in the cfl, but it’s weird if they let cobourne go, small, but can do it all. He played linebacker when he came to the league, because the alouettes had to find a way to get him on the field.

    Interesting perspective. Even though I agree that there is a chance that your football team may win a game or two in the NFL, I assure you your team would be a bottom dweller. The Browns beat the Patriots. The Bills should have beaten the Steelers (Damn you Stevie Johnson), and the Panthers simply had a bad year. I respectfully disagree with your one statement that you think your team would win with ease. In the NFL, there is no such thing as an easy win.

    The CFL takes in players who are not good enough to succeed in the NFL. I can prove this theory. If the players were good enough to play in the NFL, I assure you, they would be playing in the NFL.

    You realize they’d be penalized every play for 12 men in the huddle or on defence?

  11. Well, it is a free country (Canada)…..

    I really respect what Ahman did with the Packers and was happy he got his fat contract with Houston knowing full well that Green Bay was not going to take the risk that Houston obviously regrets.
    It was great to have him come back and finish his NFL career with the Packers before making the decision to join the UFL.

    He will always be a respected and love member of the Green Bay packers family.

    This decision is strange. He is a millionaire many times over and obviously loves the game, but I now worry about his long term health. He already has had two major injuries and is way past the shelf life for a pro back.

    Free will, free country so to each his own, but this just seems like a bizzaro version of Playmakers gone awry.

    Bets of luck, Batman. I hope you are not playing one more snap than you have to to stay healthy.

  12. I think Ahman holds the record for most career rushing yards while holding the ball only in his left hand.

    Though I’ll never forget ’03…one of the better single season performances ever.

    Good luck Ahman!

    You must not watch hockey. US is very competitive with Canada now a days…US won the World Juniors last year which is the 2nd most notorious international hockey tournament.

    Sir, unqualified statements such as you have made are impossible to prove, difficult to defend with any logic and thus are usually made only by people whose head is located South of their belly button…

    Have a nice day and try some Clorox for that “ring around the collar”…

  15. I always liked watching Ahman play. Ron Wolf pulled off a great trade when he acquired him for a defensive back who never played a down for the Seahawks.

    He was a real weapon for the Packers for many years … hope to see him in the Packer Hall of Fame someday.

    Best wishes up north, Ahman!!! Hope you’re still wearing #30.

  16. This should garner absolutely no American viewership of the CFL; instead the fact that the CFL produces diamonds in the rough like cam wake, has the most exciting special teams game, and qb’s going for the long ball every other play should. Oh ya and what else are you gonna watch in the summer othe than baseball?

  17. @wutthecrapman

    Regarding your assertations that a good CFL team could “very easily beat” a bad NFL team; you are, of course, aware that the MVP from the Grey Cup game was a guy who couldn’t keep a job in the NFL. His NFL career was, what, 10 carries for 27 yards.

  18. i never realized ahman started to play soccer? thats canada football right? sorry but canada football league’s couldn’t beat most good college teams. lmao
