Please DO NOT fire Richie Hall or Kevin Strasser. Hall is a 1st year Head Coach and once he has a handle on the job he will be a good one. The only heads I want on a platter are:
#1) Maciocca-He has wrecked my team and does not understand that you need to pay quality scouts in Canada as well as the US. When he is gone I believe we can bring in a few Ex Eskimos as guest coaches and attempt to instill the tradition and meaning of the Green & gold to these new players.
Jeff Bleamer - The Esk’s need a Quality O-line coach and there are great ones out there. It surprised me we brought in Bleamer after he was fired by Hamilton for not teaching a good young crop of O-lineman how to play. hamilton was dead last in Sacks allowed in the last year he was there.
Jim Daley- This is a no brainer this man does not truly seem to know what is required of a D-Coordinator.
I believe next week we should Start Jared Zabransky he has talent and can use Reps as a starter. Maas will still be a good backup if he falters and Ray can be penciled in at #3 with his Butt stapled to the bench.
I have basically written this team off even if we get the crossover which isn’t a given. These are the way I see things shaking up in the offseason.
QB Ray is a great QB but cannot motivate the team so he should be traded or he should take a pay cut until he plays like the Ray of old. JM and JZ should be the 1 and 2 guys. Snaps should be taken under center unless we need more time .
Receivers Stamps, Mann, Nowacki, and KP are fine all bets are off with the rest we need one of these guys to become a leader to kick some butt if the others aren’t carrying their weight. I mean hell they are supposed to be professional athletes. A more traditional TE SB 2 wideouts would be nice.
RB Cal and Arkee are a good 1-2 We should run them both out of the I formation and use Bertrand as a Tight end to block for either of the two. If we do this the run game will work and be a viable option.
O-Line What can I say the only one who seems to play with passion and gets the job done consistently is Mongo raid the free Agent market or maybe trade Ray for the entire Hamilton O-Line Seriously we need to actively shop for a legitimate O-Line Coach there are many good ones out there.
A full year with Strasser and Hall should help our offensive production.
D-Lineman Ellis Romero and Taylor are all fine. Peach, Haywood, Sterling, and Richardson have shown flashes of brilliance. With a full season together and a proper D-Line coach they look fine.
LB’s Lloyd, Hill, St Pierre, Davis, and Restelli looked fine with a good D- Coordinator they will be fine.
Secondary Goss, Parker, Drew, Nugent are solid. Malveaux and Elliot Richardson, Lenny Williams, and Bradley Robinson seem okay once again with a good D-Coordinator I think we will be fine.
Special teams are good T-Jax is a great returner and Parker is a capable backup. Pre is usually money. I think the reason behind his woes is simply Nowacki hurt his wrist and stopped holding for him Maas is a good holder but Pre is not used to him.
I believe we need to replace Bleamer and Daley in the offseason and trade Ray for a few quality canadian O-lineman. I am talking about Tsoumpas, Rottier, Hage, etc young and seriously talented O-lineman. If we do some serious recruiting and get quality replacements This team is very close to being the best team in the league.
