Fire Mike Sherman (after the season)

Yup, when the season ends, Mike Sherman needs to be fired! He brings nothing to the team. He does not know the CFL game well enough to oversee his coordinators.

He also pretty much acts like a statue holding up a headset, while he’s on the sidelines. If a head coach cannot be an Xs and Os genius, he has to be a great motivator (like Pinball Clemons). Sherman is neither.

FIRE Mike Sherman!*

*After the season. There is no point in firing him now.

Mike O’Shea is like a junior version of Sherman. However, O’Shea coached a near-perfect game vs. the flustered statue Sherman. No question Sherman is struggling with both his own infirmity and the canadian game. Keeping him around for another season would be idiotic. But get the guy some better hogs (o-line) and rushers who can keep their balance, Kavis?

I would be surprised if he did not walk away on his own accord.

Supposedly he turned Reed down when he first came calling.

Coaching High School football back home probably sounds good to him right about now.

Probably thinks about it every day (who could blame him) but remember he brought his son in this adventure. So that would be a dick move to pull on his son.
I think he stays but he’s gonna make some changes to that coaching staff.

My advice to him bring Bryan Chiu in to coach the offensive line.

That would be a good move for sure.

Why would Chiu be a good OL coach?
Fired from CFL OL jobs after one season in TO and Ottawa. Is it the name recognition thing and his playing rep?

Actually he did extremely well in Ottawa. Their Offensive line took a major downturn since he left. Has nothing to do with name recognition. It burns me that HOF career guys like Flory and Chiu don’t have a spot in the organization because they were Union reps. I really hate these owners.

Agree,last nite was the first game that the team played with some ethusiasm and thats on the HC.I dont see a lot of motivating going on with hm. He seems to act like a dugout general far away from the action. A motivational guy would really help our team right now.

I believe the GM situation needs to be resolved before any more " fire someone" stuff begins again.

Je pense qu’il faut relativiser le cas de Sherman. Oui il ne semble pas avoir le leadership ni l’ingéniosité pour amener l’équipe à un niveau supérieur. Mais en même temps, qui pourrait le faire? Ces personnes occupent de meilleurs emplois avec d’autres équipes et ne voudraient pas venir à Montréal dans cet atmosphère. Rétroactivement, Reed aurait dû mettre all in pour chercher Tommy Condell, comme beaucoup ici voulait, mais n’oubliez pas qu’on aurait pu avoir Marcel Bellefeuille.

Sherman a été amené à la dernière minute, n’a aucune expérience dans la LCF, et contrairement à June Jones, n’est pas bien entouré. Il avait dit en décembre qu’il voulait déléguer à ses coordonnateurs. Le problème est que ceux-ci ne sont pas élites eux-mêmes. Donovan est correcte à ses débuts pros, Stubler a été catastrophique en début de saison mais semble s’être ressaisit, mais Jones n’est pas capable de produire, tout comme il ne pouvait pas produire à BC. Sherman ressemble plus à une victime qu’à un problème. Il est mal entouré et ce n’est pas de sa faute. Il fait du mieux qu’il peut avec ce qu’il a, c’est à dire pas grand chose.

Si Reed est congédié, Sherman le sera sûrement. Mais ce serait injuste de demander son congédiement de la même manière qu’on demande celui de Reed. Quand tout ce qui t’entoure est problématique, c’est difficile de performer. Je crois par contre qu’on lui rendrait service, ainsi qu’à l’équipe, si on lui donnait le poste présentement occupé par Joe Mack

When players take plays off (the receivers especially) it is the HCs failure. Sherman cannot command respect from his players.

Players wouldn’t pull this crap on a Mathews or Trestman.

Je ne suis pas un grand fan de Trestman, mais pourquoi ne pas lui offrir le poste de DG et HC.

Because he has never had a GM-like role … hire a GOD general manager and let them hire their coach and let the coach hire their coordinators and position coaches.

Do you mean Marc (let’s-punt-on-third-and-three-inches-from-the-redzone-two-yard-line) Trestman? Is that the guy you want running the Als empire??
Oy vey!

Trestman hates scouting and personnel stuff. He’s probably the worst guy you could place in that position and IMO would have zero interest in that. He’s already at the top of the CFL pay ladder and gets six months off every month, he’s also now 60.

Merci! Vous répondez à ma question! ?

This evasive response from Sherman Tuesday certainly doesn`t point to his returning in 2019.

Sherman et Manziel pourraient-ils quitter?

La question trottait déjà dans la tête de bien des gens et elle se transforme de plus en plus en un doute. Est-ce que l’entraîneur Mike Sherman et le quart-arrière Johnny Manziel seront de retour avec les Oiseaux en 2019?

L’interrogation est légitime considérant le pétrin dans lequel les Alouettes sont embourbés. Déjà que Sherman s’était laissé tirer l’oreille avant d’accepter l’offre de Kavis Reed, sera-t-il tenté de poursuivre cette aventure alors que son curriculum vitae n’a clairement pas besoin de l’ajout d’une coupe Grey.

« J’aborde les choses une semaine à la fois en faisant de mon mieux pour qu’on puisse gagner des matchs », a simplement répondu Sherman sur cette question glissante.

Johnny Manziel plans to honour final year of Alouettes contract

Posted on October 17, 2018 by 3Down Staff // 0 Comments
There has been some speculation that Johnny Manziel might want to find a way out of the final year on his Montreal Alouettes contract to join the Alliance of American Football, but the star quarterback has cleared the air.
“I have another year of contract and I plan to come back for another year. I also want to get involved during the offseason, I want to keep in touch with guys who will come back. I’m thinking of doing some training in California or near here, building something. Nobody will love the taste that will stay in our mouths this year. The only way to fix things is by working,? Manziel told RDS.
Manziel signed a two-year pact in May through the 2019 CFL season. He’s due a $75,000 roster bonus on March 1 part of the compensation that could see the 25-year-old earn $202,000 in base salary plus another $150,000 in potential playtime bonuses. That’s a lot of money for a quarterback yet to register a victory in the CFL.
Manziel is 0-5 as a starter completing 72-of-116 passes (62 per cent) for 872 yards, two touchdowns against six interceptions while rushing 21 times for 139 yards. Montreal sits last in the CFL with a 3-12 record but Manziel has faith the organization can improve going forward.


While quite positive, nowhere does he state he’s interested in signing an extension an only an idiot GM of a rebuild would start a QB in the final year of his deal.

As for Sherman, how can he answer that question? It really isn’t solely up to him.

Si Sherman ne revient pas la saison prochaine, ce sera parce qu’il a décidé de démissionner. Je vois mal Kavis Reed le congédier après la saga Chapdelaine et toutes les difficultés qu’il a eu d’amener un HC à Montréal. Si jamais Reed décide bel et bien de renvoyer Sherman, le moyen le plus facile de le remplacer serait une promotion à l’interne. Et honnêtement, voudriez-vous d’un Kavis Reed, d’un Khari Jones ou d’un Rich Stubler comme HC? haha

Not a chance, not at all !
