Armchair critics saying it's time for the RedBlacks to re-evaluate their quarterbacking situation were given some added fuel Tuesday when the team signed backup Thomas DeMarco to an extension.

But Ottawa's QB of the future will remain just that, as management insisted its satisfied with the job being done by 39-year-old starter Henry Burris.

"There's zero chance of that," coach Rick Campbell said when asked if he's considering a switch at the pivotal position. "The only happy news with people actually thinking that way is that we must have another good quarterback here, so that's not a bad thing."

Burris struggled in Saturday's beating at the hands of the Saskatchewan Roughriders before being replaced in the fourth quarter by DeMarco, who promptly marched the team downfield for a touchdown.
