Only thing worth knowing? Their most experienced cfl qb is Isaac Harker.

Agree with both points above. I do like the improvements on D, but RB & QB are huge unknowns. No changes on OL except Ottawa & BC changed bodies with Steward signing in Ottawa & McGloster in BC. And, oh yes, Ryker Matthews is unsigned. Would like to see the National QB's succeed - we'll see how it plays out.

Sadly, for the third season in a row, BC won't have an adequate OL. How can a young QB develop when he's mauled every play? Or, when plays do succeed, a holding penalty brings the ball back. What about the play calling? It was horrendous last year. You can't run for one yard on first down every time.

O line should be okay. Kent Perkins played well as a first year player. Rourke will also be more elusive which will help. A bigger commitment to the run game might help.

I don't think they did enough on the D line. Secondary is good.

I don't see this D Line striking fear into the hearts of opposing offences at this point.
