The depth chart for tonight's game shows Byron Parker and Jason Goss on the corners, with Bobby Keyes and Randee Drew at HB.
Does anyone know why the coaching staff insists on playing Goss on the corner?
He's not bad at the corner, don't get me wrong, but I've always seen him as one of the league's best shut-down HBs. . . and since in the CFL with most teams their most dangerous receivers are their slotbacks, not their wideouts.
So to me it makes more sense to move Goss back where he belongs, at HB.
I'd have Keyes and Parker on the corners, with Goss and Drew as HBs.
Has anyone ever read anything in Edmonton, or heard anything on sports talk radio shows, about why they insist on playing Goss out on the corner?
Sort of reminiscent of a mistake they made a few years ago when they got Reggie Durden off of Montreal. . . a good shutdown HB, but they put him out on the corner where he struggled mightily. Square pegs don't fit round holes.
