Alouettes 2022 potential free agents

I read that the Alouettes have signed 4 of their offensive linemen to two-years deals. The players are: Kristian Matte, Philippe Gagnon, Sean Jamieson and Landon Rice.

Congratulations to Danny for extending these 4 important offensive linemen.

Really good news ! Those guys did a great job this season and they will probably acquired a LT to replace Washington

Using unused 2021 cap space on 2022 season on the Oline is Cap well spent

Yes and Washington probably was the most paid Oline so we could use his money on a stud LT

Getting the O-line solidified for next year is a good move by Maciocia.

Let's hope that still unused 2021 cap space could be used to extend players such as:

Chris Ackie N LB
Eugene Lewis A WR
David MĂ©nard N DL 2 year extension.
Jake Wieneke A WR Like Menard, hoping for a 2 year extension.

Good that the President and Owner have allowed Danny to use 2021 unused cap to sign players that would have been potential free agents.

The QB position will be the main question mark in the 2021-2022 off-season. I know, the 2021 season is not over, yet, but nevertheless QB position will be a major topic and decision. Both Adams and Harris will have to reduce their present 2022 agreement, in order to have a chance to remain with the Alouettes. 1 of these 2 will most definitely play elsewhere in 2022.

Bonnes signatures de Maciocia. Le noyau dur de la ligne offensive reste en place, ce qui nous permettra surement de libérer Washington, qui nous a rendu de bons services.

Writing on the wall for Tony?

I'm not so certain about that. Many teams have found a way to keep two quarterbacks happy. If both guys are satisfied With 350k. It could be doable. Vernon is the priority for me and most fans I think. Harris would be a nice to have but Shiltz progressed this year so I don't really see a QB problem.

If Harris leads us on a playoff run, great. I'll be cheering for him all the way. But next year, it's still Adams-Shiltz for me. Both fit Khari's offense a lot better, both are way younger, and Shiltz actually progressed this season.

Si le match se poursuit ainsi, je ne crois pas que Jones sera encore le HC à Montréal.

I think firing Jones would be a mistake. O'Shea missed the playoffs in his first two seasons as Winnipeg's head coach.

If we believe in what Khari is doing, we have to give him the opportunity to grow as a coach. Nobody is born knowing how to win.

Je suis entièrement en accord avec toi, mais je suis convaincu que s’il perd, c’est fini pour lui. Maciocia voudra placer son chum Thorpe.

Two things that are not sitting well for me are:

  • penalties again. Team lead the league.
  • ST. Absolutely no contribution from this aspect this year or the previous year.

Sur ce point, je suis entièrement d'accord. Macioca va amener son chum Thorpe, et on va peut-etre perdre Barron Miles. Ca va pas allez bien. :frowning:

Yep, I agree with you, tony. We've said the same thing the whole year. Penalties have been a huge problem. And special teams have been a disaster, apart from Cote, who has actually been very good and consistent. I would turf Donovan TBH. And bring in an offensive coach to give Khari more time to focus on cutting down penalties.

Cote has been fine placekicking but his kickoffs have not been Pro caliber.

I haven't been paying much attention to kickoffs, but if what you say is true, that's something he should work on in the offseason.

I should clarify. ST for me was the return aspect. That has been an achilles heel for the past two seasons if not longer.
