It is tough to see Brezik cut due to the number of RBs we have in camp. He may have not been running against the Argo starters, but he still impressed with his power runs. Walker was impressisve, and we know that Cobourne is solid (particularly at blocking, which I think we will need with the current O-Line), Grant had a good showing last year, and let's not forget we also have Mallett on the 9 game IR. The only thing I question regarding this decision is, which of these guys would you like in your backfield when you need 1 yard on the goal line, or on those short yardage plays (something we have been awful at for far too long)? Which of these backs gives you a different look? If he is fast enough, I would answer Brezik to both these questions.
While the Ti-Cats do have a lot of running backs available on their roster, and I respect their decision to let Brezik go at this time, I have a hard time believing he may not have fit into the overall scheme a little better. Do you want to have 4 backs that look similar, or two backs that need to be defended differently. I would prefer to have a little more diversity. Maybe this is because I am a bigger fan of the 2 back set than what we have seen over previous years where is appears that teams gear more toward the catch and run offense. I still like to see two backs when you need 2 or 3 yards, instead of a feature back that the opposition can key on. It allows for more deception, and better blocking schemes.
Oh, and as far as there not being a market for a "big bruising power runner" in this league, remember that the next time you're watching Cory Boyd dominate some teams this year. Although it is a little less of a factor with a few more domed stadiums used in the playoffs, the power running game would definately be a factor in cold games during the playoffs.
Hopefully this guy finds himself on our PR and who knows, maybe something transpires to give him a chance to play. I just doubt it will happen if he is cut this early. I hate to see us cut players in an area where we have depth. Unfortunately the size of the CFL roster can make this difficult.
