This defense is terrible, 500 yards of offense given up last night, 30+ points in 3 of the games, something needs to be changed, we need to change a scheme or bring someone in. Even if we bring a few guys in just to scare the starters a little into playing better because they are in fear of losing their jobs, it couldn't hurt. So off the top of my head I have two, Stanford Samuels and Scott Coe. Feel free to add to this list. This is steeltown, we pride ourselves on a good, gritty, rough and tough defense.
Argos released a starting DB at the final cuts this year that I am sure could beat out Gordon (maybe Carter)
I heard Taffe say, and O'Bie agree that the team was not going to have a revoling door of players this year. I say bring in the best guys....now!
there are plenty of good DB's/CB's for "hire"
Stanford Samuels, Khalil Carter, Juran Bolden, and Airabin Justin.
As for the D-line, i think we may have to wait for some NFL cuts unless Obie decideds to make a trade.
REPLACE #9 ASAP!
Three spots need immediate attention or it will be a long suffering of blow outs and mistakes after mistakes.
1/ Defensive ends - an immediate upgrade is needed.
2/ Safety - Glasper - is absolutely pathetic.
3/ Outside Linebacker - Moreno is lost with out support on the sides - Marius is a substandard canadian special teams guy.
The Als have released import DE Kevin Winston; he would be worth a look as an improvement on Charlton Keith (known as the "one-game wonder"). The Argos released DB/Safety Wayne Shaw...other than being a non-import, I don't see him as postive return to the Ticats.
Other teams find the the likes Cameron Wake - Tom Canada - Anwar Stewart - why can't this team do same?
Did they get blown out by the best team in the CFL ???
