The improper use of the Canadian / American ratio .
Most teams try to use Americans in the key positions like QB , WR , DE , CB , etc
We have the very uncommon luxury of having a Canadian running back that plays as good as most Americans would and that SHOULD give us the luxury of stacking an additional American in a key spot such as Receiver or Defensive Line . This is not happening because we have chosen to use an AMERICAN at 2 positions in which is it virtually unheard of to waste an American spot on . I am speaking of the fullback position and the kicker / punter position . I cannot understand why we are not going with as many american receiver and defensive lineman as possible considering how weak both areas currently are on this club . Julian Radlein is a competent fullback instead of dickerson and Seta is decent but it is tough to win using american in these spots .
Another thing is the reciever and dlineman position are a revolving door . How can anyone gain any consitancy when the players are being released one after the other ?
Quinton Caver , Anthony Collier and James Cotton are all better than what we have now on the D-line and there are few receivers like Theoron Anderson that didn't really get a fair shake . Player like DJ Flick and Kamau Petereon are doing well in saskatchewan which leads me to believe that is more a problem with Maas then with the revolving door of receivers coming in . I also think we should start a canadian at outside linebacker as we have mariuz who can do as well as Glasper .
My suggestion is to keep Setta at kicker / punter for now but replace Glasper with Mariuz or Auggie and then move Radlein to Fullback replacing Dickerson . This frees up 2 american spots in which we can go with 3 american receivers instead of 2 using Curry , Mccants or Guardner and Armstead and then use an additional american d-lineman . I would also give Chang 3 starts and see what he can do ..we can always fall back to Maas .
