"If I was running the team I'd like to see how Zac could perform under this new and improved offence and then make decisions from there ."
And as much regard and respect that I have for Zach Collaros, he has not run this offense or any for sometime.
While this team still has a shot at a playoff spot, you want to put him in an important game for the rest of the players, and if his unfamiliarity causes errors that costs them a win that ultimately takes away a post season game, that is a risk worth taking??
Doesn't make sense to me...
DB Emanuel Davis not playing tonight ? Healthy scratch ? Maybe he is trade bait also ?
I hope not...he's been one of our best cover guys....
According to Drew, he's benched so that they can see how some younger players play. Seems to be an asinine reason to do that to (arguably) our best DB, and not do the same with Collaros...
I think they are not starting E. Davis as he has not performed well since he has been back and they also get to take a look at a few other guys .
That's what I read later as well.....seems strange since this team is aiming for a playoff position??!!
Davis got beat like a rented mule last week. Next man up.
I like Davis, seemed to play well, always around the ball, had knock-downs, good tackler. Didn't think he was beaten all that much on Saturday, and didn't notice that he was on the replay. But then, didn't notice that he had been pulled out either.
Plus he was the guy on my "collector tickets" on Saturday. That doesn't seem to work out well for the guys this year?
Isn't the date Thurs Oct 12 4pm?!
Will we see any moves the next two days?

SHOULD THE TICATS TRADE COLLAROS BEFORE THE DEADLINE?
No. What if Masoli gets hurt? They can trade Collaros in the off-season.
No, but they should trade Manziel's rights.
Agree fully. Maybe even give him some playing time yet, although we already have a good idea of what he is capable of doing.
Maybe WPG will pay a premium for Collaros.
Looks like Nichols finger is thrashed. :-\
At WPG practice today
TSN.ca just ran a story saying Nichols threw well at practice today, but Grover's photo suggests the hand could be an issue going forward.
I agree that with the Bombers thinking they can make a run this year, Winnipeg might be willing to trade for Collaros.
Even so, it's hard to imagine Winnipeg offering enough to make it worth our while. The logicial thing to seek in a trade like this is a quality Canadian, and the only really tempting assett Winnipeg has in that regard is Andrew Harris, who obviously won't be on the table. I'd say Loffler, but I think Courtney Stephen has played well for us.
Draft picks maybe? Or part of some kind of package trade?
I'm thinking it's unlikely any deal will get done. It's late in the season for Collaros to make an impact anyway, unless Nichols is completely non-functional.
I would have to think that Winnipeg is nearly capped out for money to spend and especially with the price tag for Zach Collaros.
Possibly Montreal, BC or Sask, I would think Montreal might be a contender given the fact that they are already out of the playoff picture for this year.
If not than agreed maybe it's best just to keep Collaros around in case the Cats make the playoffs and in case Mazola was to get injured. Still some possibilities on the table?
GO CATS GO!!!
Just watched June Jones post practice presser and he said that Zach isn't going to be traded.
He wants him on the team.
