Argonauts 2024 Season

Dont know why they were released but does make sense why Ticats signed Marion when a DL they drafted is dealing with a injury and when special teams besides woods & punter didnt play good vs calgary

We’ll have to see where Oakman ends up. If I were a TiCat fan I would be pretty happy with the Marion signing. Good Special Teams player.

I dont mind the Marion signing and i had a postive interaction with him on Instagram dms yesterday, the fact two of my fave National DE were released by the ticats after pre season is still making me be annoyed with management & coaches though.I Will still support some players i care about on the team though .

What’s going on. Another Argo snatched by Hamilton. I thought Knight had established himself in the DL rotation. Were the Argos caught off guard or did they know this was going to happen. I notice the Argos had brought one of this years draft picks, Tyson Hergott, onto the game roster so I guess he can rotate with Canadian Rob Smith. I thought the Argos young CB’s were exposed a bit by Montreal receivers so we see Nationalized American Jonathan Edouard starting at CB and Leonard Johnson banished to the practice roster. They are still trying to find replacements for Peters and Stiggers back there it seems. Also Canadian Fraser Sopik starts at the Will LB spot ahead of Jonathan Jones. This current defense is starting to look a little ordinary. Getting DE Orimolade back will help, they’re not the same without him.

I saw Haggerty go down on the field grasping his right ankle while reviewing ST film this week. Hopefully, he will make a full recovery!

If he cannot play, for whatever reason, I would hope that the Argos would elevate Global Punter Jeremy Edwards from the PS. He averaged 43.4 yards and 38.7 net yards across 7 punts in preseason. He had 2 punts (29%) remain inside the 20YL and did a good job with ball placement, limiting the number of the number of return yards available.

I do NOT want to see Lirim Hajrullahu handle punting duties. In the 2023 USFL (Spring Football) Season he handled punting for the Philadelphia Stars and averaged 39.9 yards and 32.2 net yards over 13 attempts. He was below league-average in just about every statistical category and he only had 13% of his punts travel 50 yards.

ALS fans are saying they lost because Fajardo got injured and had to use the second string QB , which is true. News flash the Argos are also playing with their second string QB.

Dukes has had way more reps.

He’s not a raw rookie. He’s been in the league longer and started some games in Ottawa

Didn’t say he was a raw rookie. It takes a while for a qb to get into rhythm. For example. Zach Collaros didn’t play in the pre-season and it’s taken him a while to get into rhythm. Caleb Evans has been sitting on the bench or using a clipboard for most of this season. Dukes has been playing for 5 weeks. Big difference.

No doubt there is a difference though both teams had significant injuries before that game …Als no doubt should of tried to use Tyson Philpot more when he is a stud WR
