I am really starting to question Burke's ability to put the best players on the field and his scheming ability.
He waited until week 4 to play Hunt, who promptly made Burke look like a fool by recording a monster game with two picks and many tackles.
He insists on using a 4-3 defense despite the fact that we are thin on quality linemen and overloaded with quality linebackers.
Proulx is starting with Masson on the practice roster despite Proulx's long history of injury.
Whatever scheme he's using, our players aren't buying into it. Our zone coverage is terrible, with huge holes in the middle of the field.
Our front-7 is too small to stop the run effectively.
Our secondary has yet to record an interception.
I know it's fairly early in the season, but I don't like the way our D looks this season. It's why I still think we should have hired Chris Jones as head coach with Trestman as the O.C. That way, our head coach would have been a CFL veteran who could have been heavily involved in overseeing the decisions of the D.C. Right now, my impression is that Trestman, being an offensive guy, isn't very involved in the defense, which needs some quality control looking over Burke's shoulder.
I hope Burke proves me wrong, but I am not impressed thus far.
