It doesn't really matter what happens from here on out.

The 2013 CFL campaign will go down as the season of the new quarterback.

On Sunday an eighth quarterback, Montreal's Troy Smith, made his first CFL start, and all he did was throw three touchdown passes in his team's romp over the Tiger-Cats. It was the third time this season a pivot making his first CFL start threw three touchdowns in his debut.

In the 24 first starts between 2007 and 2012, not a single one of those quarterbacks threw three touchdown passes in a game.
