Depth chart for Friday night tilt in Ottawa vs the TWO-COLOURS.
Sink is listed as backing up Speedy and returning kicks with Williams , McDaniel starting at SB , Green starting at RB , Buren gets his 2nd start at WR . On defence , no changes , still no Tracy or Neill on the D-Line .
The team is looking quite healthy heading into this very important 2 game home and home.
Lawrence often seems open but does not seem to have productive games. He is a logical choice to be scratched.
Looking at the roster for Friday it looks very strong. i just wished the team received more productivity from the Import DE position. If this is my only complaint then we are in great shape!
We're missing pieces on the D line, and facing the league's rushing leader (really a tossup between him and Andrew Harris).
I'm optimistic, but if Ottawa's run opens up the pass, it will be a long night for our D. I'd love to see us make long drives to keep their offense off the field, and ideally put Ottawa in a hole early to pressure their offense into "pass first" mode.
Probably the best guess, bobo. Although, based on passing comments made by Coach Jones, over the past week or so in his meetings with the media, it wouldn’t be a complete shock, to me, if Sinkfield does not dress or even if White does. I find it’s getting more difficult, as time goes by, to judge whether some of the coach’s little thrown-in comments are factual hints, for we fans, or deliberate deceptions for the opposition.
With both starting WR positions being manned by Canadians in Jones and Buren and being backed up by Erlington on the chart there is really no need or sense to carry an import in Lawence as a reserve for this game . I'll be personally shocked and disappointed if we don't see number #14 out there and dressed for this all important game tonight.
The reason why I posted "It wouldn't be a complete shock, to me, if Sinkfield didn't dress" was mostly based on comments by Steve Milton and Coach Jones after the 3 days of prep for Ottawa were completed:
Milton: "It appears, from where I'm sitting, maybe Sink isn't up to speed yet with the offence."
Jones: "I believe that if he played, somebody would tell him what to do and he'd do it just great. I really like him. I think he's going to be a factor before this year's up."
Also, Sinkfield appearing on this game's depth chart isn't really any change from last game. His name wasn't put on that chart, since they knew, for sure, 24 hrs. prior to kickoff that he was not dressing, having just arrived in town. They published a 44 man chart, then named 1 Reserve (Jordan). But Sinkfield was, officially, the 45th player on the Active Roster, and the other Reserve. (45 players has been the TiCat Active Roster norm for the past 3 games after they stopped dressing a 3rd QB))
