I always had confidence in Jim Popp and Don Matthews. But this year, I really must say, I was disapointed in both of them.
Getting rid of Kevin Johnson, Marc Megna and now Reggie Durden? It's nice that our new MLB has potential, but can he last at least 1 full game or 2? Yet to be proven. And for Mark Megna, he had speed, instead of getting bigger guys for the run, how about we use speed on the end to get to the QB on the pass, which the CFL offence is based on?
As for DBs, we don't have terrible DBs. In fact, we have great backs. I agree with Third and Ten, Sanchez does bring more to the table when he's healthy, but Durden has won our hearts, with his heart for the game, and dedication to the team. But we have to move on with the Backs we have now, and going through the list they're actually pretty good. Malveaux, Bell, Curry, Sanchez, Crutchfield and hopefully Karikari,
In my opinion, the only reason we were getting burned alot on the pass, was because they lacked the leadership from past years. Not just leadership from a veteran player, but leadership from perhaps the BEST DEFENCEMEN in the league, Barron Miles.
