I watched the TICATS /ARGOS game again .
and I watched very closely to evaluate players and noticed a few things :
1 . Porter was not as bad as we thought as bioth blunders were clearly not his fault ....one was Simmons not picking up a blitz and the other was O'neill not hearing the audible call ...overall Porter was ok outside of that ...
Simmons made more than a few bad reads and he could be in jeopardy of losing his spot
Rose was getting decent penetration in the middle but mcelveen not so much and the canadian Steele
Darcy Brown mad a lot of mistakes in this game as i replayed some of the plays i can see that he missed blocks or allowed buys through many time...i don't like this player ...just my opinion ,,.never had ..not a smart player . If cortez has half a brain he will use francisco or stephenson or fournier
5 Duwalt looked great on 2 kick returns but got injured
6 Powell misread at least 2 plays chaasing the srong guy and so did Crable but Crable is more new to the CFL and played better otherwise .
My guess is Mcleveen and Powell and Steele lost points on the scorecard ....I can see the DLINE BEING
Peach , Rose , Steele , Boudreau or Crable --
7 Ike Brown was a monster our there as was patrick jean mary and watkins looked good too as did dee webb
8 The specialty teams looks amazing with eiben , fornier , kanya, ike brown, jean mary , giguerre etc
9 Cody Husband did an admirable job and Pete D played great as did belton johnson and oneill was ok ...
simmons was not so good
10 onrea jones looked good when called upon ...i did not like deon murphy and i hope next game williams, onrea jones and dewalt or gigure get some kick return opps
11 arron kelly did not look so good and for some reason they are givinbg jeffers harris very little opportunity
I personally think Aaron Kelly will not become a star and i'd keep Onrea Jones , Duwalt , Jeffers Harris and let go Murphy , Kelly ,
I;d also give Hennesy , Dile or Claytor more time to see if they are better than Simmons .
Next game will tell alot as some of the players mantioned have to step up :
These are soem of the guys on the bubble :
Hennesy , Dile or Claytor
