Chang has rocky start in CFL
Tim Chang's debut as the starter for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats was not a memorable one.
Chang, the NCAA all-time passing yardage leader, went 5-for-15 for 44 yards with one interception and was pulled after the first half in a 32-14 loss to the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League's annual Labour Day Classic.
"I played horrible," Chang, the former Hawaii quarterback, told the Canadian Press.
"You're definitely excited. You're nervous. You're anxious. All those things are going through your body. But I think just a couple balls got away from me early."
Chang was replaced by recently demoted Jason Maas, who went 8-for-15 for 161 yards in the second half.
"It didn't work out this week," Hamilton coach Charlie Taaffe told reporters. "But we've go to find out if he can play quarterback in the CFL.
