Figure we should start one of these here. Mostly quiet offseason so far, resigning some important pieces and grabbing one of BC’s corners.
I’d really like to see us focus almost exclusively on defense. Our offense was anemic but our defense was so bad it almost set records. Nobody else was even in the same galaxy in terms of points allowed per game.
Nobody else was 5 position coaches short while trying to rebuild either. If you notice we hired an O-line coach. We didn't fire or release one, but we hired one.
I also know we were short a special teams coach bit I am not sure which others we were missing.
Given that information - some of our coaches must have been doubling up and that means less time with your specialty. With limited practice time, it all kind of spirals into not enough time to coach each group and with a lot of rookies - that ain't good.
Would be but Pelly is off to the NFL. Wasn't a big announcement or anything. Sort of double sucks since we picked him in the supplemental draft and because of that we lost a pick in this years draft and we loose Pelly.
Don't know how many years I've got left, I'd like to see them turn things around before I'm done. They've got a lot of work to do and it's not gonna be easy. Way too many years of taking things for granted.
I think Cui has the right mindset and forward-thinkers like him and Amar Doman in BC are the type of people the CFL needs in executive positions. The Elks haven't seen a winning season since 2017, but BC also had a string of losing seasons before finding success last year. If they can put it back together, so can we. Our player talent was not completely absent last season and if we can bring on more coaching specialists that would help lessen the workload for the staff. If Tre can be the guy we need him to be, it's looking up.
