I’ve daid it before, but one more time won’t hurt…“Who is the ‘Captain’ of the OLine?” For a long time it was Coulter, and worked well. Presently we don’t have any heir apparent leader in there (maybe Jonta?) that can stay healthy long enough to be effective.
I was going to say leave the coaching out of it, but can’t. Lets get a great Head Coach, with CFL experience, and yes Taffe seems to be the target. Coach Sal has earned a spot as OLine coach. DLine coach is either good or is having any errors erased by great players. The remainder should be polishing their regimes.
And we need more coaches than we have. No QB or receiver coach means no advocates in the direction of the team and the crummy offense we’ve been caused to endure, as the feedback is lost at a play design level.
We are coming along in the D Backfield, though I wish we got to see more of the guy from Sask than we do of Shaw, as I’d like a stronger safety (ie a younger Hitchcock!)
The linebacking needs some work and size.
The returners are now here for ST’s, given Hill ever gets healthy enough to play, but crystallizing the return cover would be nice; of course you don’t trade to do that…
A good argument for physically bigger receivers. Add to that, that they are attuned to Maas’s thoughts and timings (which means we hire in the fall, and protect in the spring).
Overstocked a lot at RB; I can’t see how we can retain all the guys we have and get the best benefit, and each are diamonf trade bait, when healthy!
While it’ll draw fire, I have no issue with retaining Jason Maas as starting QB for 2007. As we start to go down the final tubes in 2006, lets swallow the pride and play a bit of the backups, to see who should be here next year, and who should not.
Biggest challenge will by the HC and OC that can look at and understand the misused talent that we already have, and how to win in any dispersal draft that may occur…
