1pp Many key players have regressed and getting long in the tooth . Simoni, Laurent, Van Zeyl, loss of Filer , Daly , Speedyb and Masoli.
- Their Db's are small and not very physical. Loss of physical and tall Breaux is huge. Mike Daly is soft and slow. Frankie maybe too short. Rolle is soft and should be a backup as shown last game on one on TD vs Sask rookie national . When brooks is healthy , I would give Stribling or Lawrence a start at Rolles spot .
You saw in only a small sample size that Katsantonis is more physical than Daly. I hope Daly is not seriously injured.
- We have no running Game . This is partly due to a not physical enough Oline. I think STE is a great guy but not a starting running back. He is not even close to Stanback, Powell, or the bombers super Canadian Andrew Harris to name a few.
We need to use an import at RB for certain who is faster and stronger.
It looks like gibbon is not ready to start and the answer is not to use an import lime Yarbrough at guard. I say move Okafor to guard and sign some physical import tackles.
Our dine is also not physical enough against the run and that includes the 2019 Grey cup. Laurent is not as strong as he was and Howsare should get replaced by a more physical player like Mauldin, Akeem or even national Bennett.
Everyone predicted the ticats to win this years Grey cup. I think it got to their heads and need a wake up call.
A. Daly in for Adeleke- big drop off
B. Van Zeyl - still recovering. No real replace ment
C. Laurent - ratio change hurts and drop off with Wilson
D. Wynn - big drop off with Wilson or Autry
E. Addison and Posey - huge drop off
F. Frey - big drop off on special teams
G. Brooks - drop off with Stribling with lack of cfl experience
A. The kicking game - big loss in Lirium Having to dress one less import hurts too especially on special teams.
B . Breaux - Rolle is a big drop off
C- Rycker Mathews - Big loss ..no replacement
D. Tasker- We lack that tough reliable experienced receiver right now to come back to the QB when QB is scrambling or broken play .
E. Filer- moving Ciraco to new posiltion will have growing pains and Gibbon not a decent replacement at guard.
