MONTREAL - Mike Reilly is going through his fair share of struggles in his first season as a starting quarterback in the CFL.

But a 64.8 passer-efficiency rating in his first four games with the Edmonton Eskimos would probably be a lot harder to take if he wasn't in such good company.

After all, it's got to be somewhat encouraging to see 20-year CFL veteran Anthony Calvillo going through struggles of his own, sitting just two spots ahead with a rating of 75.5.

“They're going through changes, they have a whole new coaching staff who is coming from the States,” Reilly said. “They're going through a transitional period, much like we are. But the thing about those types of teams is that once you get over that hump and once everything meshes together, you're going to be a difficult team to stop.

“So it's just a matter of when that time comes, and for us, I think we're very close. And with them, they may be very close as well.”
