Looking ssssoooo forward to the new CFL season!

Jennings, our new QB looks like a star in the making. Lulay will be his mentor and when needed will step in on a moment's notice. Maybe they should rotate these two.

Elimimian is back on defence. This guy is like a wolverine. And he will be teaming up with Bighill! I would not want to be on the field with these guys chasing me down. No siree!

And Wally Buono is back at that helm! Stability, experience, smarts and a guy who can show compassion and empathy but still give a guy a swift kick in the rear if he's not going to be a team player.

Wally can relate to any age level. He is a no nonsense guy and can take ownership for his mistakes. It is going to be great seeing Wally down on the field coaching again. It will be great seeing some of the familiar faces coming back to play.

Man I hope the Lions dominate this year!

Right there with you! Hopefully #14 can remain injury free and get his full wheels back. And also, Jennings (who reminds me of the 2010 Lulay) I hope he gets a chance to really shine and be fully utilized this year. Wally? Well I think you covered him pretty good.

Really enjoyed CFL Talk tonight on TSN before the first pre season game against the Riders.

Roar Lions 2016.

Je crois que Jennings est le meilleur prospect chez les jeunes quarts-arrières qui ont fait leur entrée en scène l'an dernier. Il a toutes les dispositions pour devenir un très bon quart.

Cela dit, j'ai plus de réserves à propos de Khari Jones. Ce dernier est un bon entraîneur de quarts-arrières, mais je n'ai jamais été impressionné par les attaques qu'il a conçues ou dirigées. Je ne sais pas s'il aura autant de succès avec Jennings entre les mains que Cortez en a eu à le faire progresser l'an dernier, avec l'aide de Jones, bien sûr.

La brigade de receveurs m'a semblée assez bonne, et elle devrait s'améliorer. Par contre, je suis plus songeur à propos de la ligne offensive. Cette dernière ne me semble pas suffisamment aguerrie et il y aura beaucoup de travail à faire en cours de saison pour qu'elle gagne en cohésion.

Bonne saison à tous!

The Lions' offensive lie has been an issue for the past several years. Time and again the Lion's QB ends up running for his life because the guys supposedly trying to protect him while he's in the pocket end up getting steam rolled over or called for holding. Time and again the Lion's QB ends up eating turf because he never got the protection he needed to allow the play to develop.

And as for the running game? Andrew Harris is a very good running back but so many times he would get stuffed for zero gain or very little gain. Cornish who plays for Calgary had big holes to run through which I think is why he looked so good. Not that he isn't a good player but his line helped him look even better. Those holes were created by the offensive line. The Lions were inept most of the time.

I don't know why it is taking the Lions so long to put together a capable offensive line. If Wally hopes to protect Jennings his rising star QB he better have a good O-line to work with this year.
