It looks like we are missing a punter.

I agree not sure Crapigna can punt

C'mon, our offense is going to be so good we won't need one!

But just in case isn't Brière a punter?

Sheldon you took the words right out of my mouth; I was just about to post the very same thing !

It's what great minds do. :slightly_smiling_face:

is that an indication that Tre Watson is plan to be the starting MLB ?

May not necessarily be the 'plan', but as things stand now I'd guess he has the inside track.

There are over 100 players on the Als roster, same as most teams I think.

There likely won't be rookie camp or pre-season games, probably just a very condensed training camp. So how the heck will a team be able to properly evaluate all these guys to get down to a 46 man roster?!

Problem

Only 2 QBs on the roster this year(Was supposed to start last year) More Stupidity from the comish

I know, they will fight for the #2

Oh I thought that was your final roster

Well I still think Nelson will beat out Shiltz.

Give that as much credence as any of my other predictions. . . which is to say, not a whole lot.

There has to be some sort of rookie/free agent/mini-camp before the main training camp in order to trim the roster down to a manageable number. We will just have to wait for the exact details on how such player evaluations will be implemented.

There is no limit on the number of QB's on a roster. What changed was the number of designated QB's dressed on gameday. Now, the number is 2. Should a team choose to dress a 3rd quarterback, there would be a reduction of 1 American (if the QB is American) elsewhere on your roster that could play in that game. Same principle would apply if you want to dress a Canadian or a Global as your #3 QB.

Teams wanting to carry the traditional 3 QB's will likely just rotate their 2nd and 3rd QB's on the 1-game injured list. That is because the 3rd quarterback dressed is almost never a factor in the outcome of the game. Teams would rather have the extra positional player.

You could obviously carry more than 3 QB's by placing the extras on the 6-game injured list or assigning them to the practice roster.

My guess is that the starting mlb for Game #1 is currently not on the Alouettes roster.

I'm sure their will be a competition in training camp. The way DJ Lalama played last year, he deserves a shot.

We are back to old school CFL when the Backup of the backup QB played special teams, held the ball or kicked it.

Appreciate the disclaimer (lol), but I would be very afraid if Shiltz is not #2 starting the season. Shiltz has been in this system for 3+ years now. What is it that makes you uncomfortable with Shiltz vs starting completely over with someone new to the league and the system ?.

It's not that I am uncomfortable with Shiltz, just that he's been with us for several years and really hasn't shown much. Nelson I think has more talent and ability, and what I saw from him in the AAF and the XFL was, I think, superior to what I've seen from Shiltz. Plus, we've signed WR Nelson Spruce, and Philip Nelson and he had some really good chemistry as they played together in the AAF.

I don't think any of the AAF guys will have much of an impact. I like Shiltz because of his experience, with this team. Any new guy would be limited in a new system, and a new league. I think Shiltz can be as effective as Dane Evans, given a chance. A real chance, not just a series, or a game here and there.

Well, here's hoping there will be a season this year, so we can find out.
