Chamblin's butt tearing while playing the Stamps must have paid off, because the energy in the Bomber game was the highest I have seen all year. Hope it sticks. Finally got a chance to watch the game on TV... I would love to see a few things happen down the road...
1 - Foster MUST be kept. His bubble was impressive. Most receivers sweet spot is basically knees to forhead and 20% further than wingspan. Foster caught a lowball and one that was high and trailing. He also seems to have that intuition that draws him to openings...that is instinct...not trainable. This is the 3rd read man DD needs. Only saw a bit of him, but loved his game!
2 - West / Sanders...well, Sanders was lined up as RB when Sheets wasn't. He has top notch hands, super speed, can return, and is a RB. Dress him as a RB, and use him as a receiver at times. His role is steadily increasing on this team. Drop West is just there. He is already 3rd on depth chart as RB...dump him and bring in a guy who can return kicks.
3 - Dressler...sorry, I hate seeing one of the best set of hands in the CFL returning kicks...period. They used him a bit inside unlike previous games and he was a threat all game.
4 - TJ Harris...he has skill, but the fact he was twittering that crap to Tina Lapolice frightens me that he is just too much of a hot head. Short leash my friend
5 - Milt Collins played solid. I would like to see more of him in game. By not dressing West, they could potentially dress him and Turenne.
6 - The O-line is struggling on pass blocking, mainly dues to the rotating door, because they were solid the first few games until the injury bug bit. If they can not solidify I liked that they mixed it up putting Sanders as RB and rolling out Sheets (you could line them both up as RB at the same time...that would be tough to deal with if you run a double screen). Also, the quick hitter passes and inside passes are an absolute must...these really opened things up. The double TE was also nice. The point is, the O was always adjusting formations in this game, keeping the DL off balance.
7 - Brackenridge...I was shocked when I heard he was almost a scratch. I think he is doing a top notch job, and the fear of this has elevated his game even more.
8 - Woldu has been playing really well. I hope he has earned a little more of a rotation in.
9 - Shomari Williams was moved outside, and apparently did so with a smile. I think it is a much better fit for him. I thought he had his best game of the year in the role
