I'm listening to these two knowing they are backed up by Joe Mack and I have no faith whatsoever that these guys know what they are doing. First of all they are talking way too much that's the first sign, They just flipped a first rounder a month ago cause they wouldn't meet his demands. That's the reality of these first round picks. So not having one saves the team close to a 100k. So flipping picks this year and next would be stupid considering this draft is particularly thin up top.

For his first draft year, the less weeling and dealing Kavis and Eric do the better it is for this team. At 12 they will get one of Spooner, Luke or Gosselin and at 21, they can land one of Mulumba, Auclair. Most times team end up getting most of the players they wanted and this year the draftboards are wlldly different from team to team.

-In response to Arash Madani's post about the Argos talking to the Lions about trading into the 1st round, Farhan Lalji says: "Alouettes have had the same discussions with both the Lions and Bombers. No surprise both teams are looking to trade into the first round".

-Danny Anthrop posted: thankful for the opportunity to play my first season this year in the CFL and I can't wait to see the passion these Canadian fans have for the sport I love. (Post is only notable because Anthrop said in a previous article that he was going to use the CFL to "get film" as a stepping stone to the NFL.)

-Jesse Joseph looks big for somebody who is supposed to be moving to DE this season.

-DL Tim Agbaje from Saskatchewan has Montreal Alouettes mentioned in his social media profile.

-Classify this as a 1 in 9 chance, though it could easily be the Als. A scout posted the following: Looking for an athletic QB who can scramble, throw on the run, and has a quick release. Also looking for a versatile OL who can play both LT & RT. Possible CFL opportunity.

-Kyris Hebert will launch his own shoe in 2 weeks. Ray Drew received his diploma from Georgia.

Je regarde le travail accompli par les Lions durant cet entre-saison, et je crois qu'ils sont de sérieux aspirants au premier rang de l'Ouest cette année. En fait, tout dépendra de la ligne offensive, car pour le reste, c'est une équipe maintenant très bien garnie. Quand je regarde cette division, je trouve que l'écart entre ses équipes se resserre d'année en année. Les Lions et les Bou! Bombers ont repris du terrain sur les Stampeders et les Eskimos.

Dans l'Est, c'est une toute autre histoire. Il y a eu tant de chambardements que presque tout me semble possible. La seule chose que je ne vois pas arriver, c'est que Ricky Ray joue la majeure partie de la saison sans être blessé sérieusement. Les Alouettes constituent une équipe profondément transformée et demeurent le gros point d'interrogation de la division. Les Afros-Communistes ont subi plusieurs pertes importantes mais ont tout de même gardé un très bon noyau. Les Timinous ont comblé certaines lacunes mais pourrait souffrir de certaines pertes. Dans leur cas non plus, on ne sait pas trop s'ils en seront améliorés ou pas. Et la question de la santé de Collaros demeure cruciale. Je crois qu'ils ont progressé du côté de la ligne offensive, mais ils en ont peut-être un peu perdu dans d'autres unités. Je les vois tout de même encore lutter pour le premier rang cette année. Pour ce qui est des Argonauts, l'arrivée de Trestman est certainement une bonne nouvelle pour eux, mais si la ligne offensive n'est pas sérieusement améliorée, ils vivront le même problème que ces 2 dernières saisons. Bradynovitch exploitait le même système. Milanovitch a même eu le dessus sur Trestman et Brady avec celui-ci en 2012. Aussi, je ne suis pas convaincu que la venue de Trestman fera une si grosse différence. Mais la présence de Condell au sein de cette équipe pourrait amener une amélioration.

The two organizations on the upswing IMO are the Lions and the Bombers. Calgary is going to wear those GC scars for a while. In Edmonton Ketchup man has caused a transition in football ops, status quo is my guess. Saskatchewan is a vintage style enter for a dime freak show.

The East is all over the place and teams will end up in the standings based on the productivity of their quarterbacks.

Bruno Heppell`s overview of the 2017 team, although no mention of the DBs other than Phillips.

http://www.rds.ca/football/alouettes/le ... -1.4497484

2 takeaways:

- Boulay had a strong Florida mini-camp and appears to have the edge over Plessius and Ackie for the WILL LB spot.

- LBJ is in very good shape.

Still not up on the Als website, but former Rider Marcus Adams Linked In has him as an Als Pro Scout. He had previously tweeted this.

He`s also a Regina Correctional Officer so the Als gig may be only part time.

Un contributeur a soulevé cette absence remarquable. Je concours avec lui sur le fait qu'il est à peu près impossible de savoir maintenant quelle sera la configuration de la tertiaire, sinon que Philips et Johnson devraient en faire partie. Si tous les jeunes qui ont eu une chance l'an dernier ont somme toute bien fait, il demeure que beaucoup de nouveaux visages se sont ajoutés. Ça laisse entrevoir des luttes sérieuses au sein de cette unité durant le camp d'entraînement.

Tiquan Underwood not having attended mini-camp, I kind of felt he might not be in the team`s plans. But Chapdelaine in this interview says he will be competing to be the team`s 5th receiver.

Nothing much else of interest other than Chapdelaine saying QB Matt Shiltz reminded him a bit of Travis Lulay at mini-camp.

And no Mario Langlois didn`t ask him again if he would prefer working with a francophone GM.

Once camp starts we will see who is fighting for what position. You would think there is more than one player fighting with Ryan Phillips for the safety spot. Right now I have no idea who that is.

De Chapdelaine hier :

" On va franchir une autre étape en défensive également, avec l'ajout d'un joueur canadien."

http://www.rds.ca/football/alouettes/alouettes-jacques-chapdelaine-mise-sur-le-changement-de-culture-amorce-en-2016-1.4511684

Bon. On sait que les plans peuvent changer, mais ça ouvre la porte à une ligne offensive avec 4 joueurs nationaux.

Much as we would like to see it, I don`t think we will see 4 National o-linemen. This is what Okie has posted previously:

Jacques Chapdelaine was asked about the ratio during the pre-season conference call this morning. He said when the team is utilizing the 4-3 on defense, the Als will play 2 non-import DT's. When they are in the 3-4, one of the DT's will come out and be replaced by a Canadian LB. On offense, there will be three non-imports on the line with both tackles being American. The other Canadians would be one receiver + fullback in certain situations. On obvious passing downs, the Als will utilize 2 non-import receivers.

I haven`t listened to the conference as yet, but it is available on the Als website.

Dans les derniers jours, Jacques Chapdelaine a mentionné, en quelques occasions, que l'an dernier les Alouettes ont joué avec un joueur national en defensive- au début de la saison 2016, 2 joueurs nationaux jouaient en défensive- et qu'en 2017 ce sera au moins 2 et parfois 3.

Je ne vois pas pourquoi, LeStaf, le fait de dire,par Jacques Chapdelaine, "on va franchir une autre étape en défensive également avec l'ajout d'un joueur canadien" ouvre la porte à un alignement de 4 joueurs nationaux sur la ligne offensive. Pour moi, c'est clair que l'intention est de jouer avec 2 plaqueurs internationaux sur la ligne offensive. Ce sont également les actions et messages de Kavis Reed et Jacques Chapdelaine.

Excluant les quarts, toute équipe peut jouer avec un alignement de 20 joueurs internationaux. Présentement, je prévois un minimum de:

2 sur ligne défensive
3 secondeurs
5 demi-défensifs
2 sur ligne défensive
3 receveurs
1 demi-offensif
1 retourneur de bottés
1 botteur

Les 2 autres seront choisis parmi les positions suivantes:

Secondeur
Demi-défensif
Receveur
Demi-offensif

From this story it looks like in addition to the 2 International OTs it will be :

C - LBJ
RG - Matte
LG - Blake

And Jacob Ruby will be switched to LG.
