I heard that Mike Daly is getting the starting reps over Courtney Stephen. What is that all about?? Don't tell me they're about to do what they did to Bomben and Kanneh.... Stephen offers way too much versatility to let him go

Source?  Seems like a made up claim to me.

Daley has been good when given the chance. I have NP with either starting for us at safety. I actually wondered if Daley would be an option at SAM.

Open practice, Stephen isn't starting... crazy!!
Daly has been good, but don't think he should be starting over Stephen.

The backups also practice.

From what I heard in the Jones presser today, it sounds like both could play.  Or are they maybe going to shift Stephen to to the corner where he played well about 3 years ago?  Jones was a bit coy about it when asked.  I expect that Jones will do the unpredictable from time to time which is fine - as long as it works!   :D

He's not going to tell the media who all the starters are.  Even though teams have to release depth charts the day before the game - him telling them today who starts where would give Calgary extra time to watch film on those guys.

They only ever will tell the media a small fraction of all there is to actually know.  If you want the inside scoop you need a job on the team.

Daly has a nose for the ball.  He often goes for the pick.  I'm glad if he's going to play more this year.

I still like Stephen over him. He’s a veteran with a lot of experience at S and CB. He has played well for us the last few years, don’t know wh Glanville would change it up (sounds like they are going to from June’s press release).

Daly is listed as starting over Stephen in the depth chart that was released. Maybe the plan is to rotate them in?

Or maybe Stephen will take a few plays at corner?

Stephen probably just a bit dinged up from camp.  Good enough to play, but why not give Daly (who had a good camp) the start.

Exactly Espo - as our all of our comments on here - just guesswork on our part.  That's part of the fun of being a fan - trying to speculate on what the coaches might do in a game and Jones is new enough as HC that we really don't know just what he might have up his sleeve.  :)

I take this back.  You were 100% correct.
