After 6 games there's been enough of a sample size, and I honestly can't see the Als beating anyone other than the Redblacks. Just too many issues.
Lousy DB play. Miles brought Hunter & Glass with him from Edmonton and they have done nothing. Besides getting constantly beat, Glass has been a liability with his penalties.
And what happened to the great 4 man pass rush Maciocia promised that was going to allow 8 guys to defend opposition receivers? Usher for one has certainly been a bust.
All the undisciplined penalties. Is Khari too mild mannered a guy to reign the team in?
Loss of Alford as returner. Ross did not look to be a comparable replacement.
And yeah, Adams with his costly interceptions at inopportune times. In 2019 Vercheval used to say how lucky Adams was with DBs dropping potential interceptions. Well his luck appears to have run out. And so has ours.
On the positive side, Stanback and the o-line ( my biggest concern at the beginning of the season) have been playing great. But it is not enough to overcome all the other stuff.
