Ok here it is at long last Jamie Stoddard gets a starting spot. Great I was wondering how many passes Scott Cloman needed to drop before they would replace him. Bottom line is Stoddard should have been in the stating line up permanetly for the last five years. He consistely does what is asked of him and to boot he’s a Canadian. The fact that he’s perminent posisiton on the team has been the holder is a crime. Sure he’s somewhat smaller and gets nailed for the odd fumble but usually it’s cause the QB is hanging out to dry out there and instead of giving up on the play Stoddard still gives it 110%. He’s fearless especially considerig his size.
The biggest worry for the season is Jim Daley. Jim needs to take charge of this team yes the O-line and the defensive secondary sucks so Jim GET ON THEM! Get pists off! Don’t just sit on the sidelines chewing on your play book wondering what your going to tell the media next. This “rebuilding” excuse is getting old after all this is the CFL we could loose or gain 8 players from one year to the next as could any team in the CFL. We have some disent players especially on Offence they just need to have a supporting cast. Jim needs to let these guys know he’s upset with the way there plaing (Oline especially ). Embaress them if he has to because clearly the current technique has not and is not working.
As far as I’m conserned replace booth Jermesse Jones and Dave Mudge on Thursday with newcomers John Feugill and Dan Goodspeed. It can’t get any worse. Show the vets that if they want to start and and get paid they’re going to have to play. There is an extreme lack of enthusiam on the field player are acting like they’ve just come off a four day binge every time they step onto the field. Even Milt is fed up with our lack luster performance of the past couple years. Jim needs to show his team that he cares and that he’s serious about winning.
Last of all we need to mix up the play on offence and defence. Lets see some play come from the double TE set. If Tee Martin is so mobile lets see some designed boot legs. As for the D what’s with all the zone coverage we’re just giving the other team first downs. If we’re gonna get beat lets get beat man to man. Common Jim show yours guys that you trust them and make them step up to the plate it might go a long way. Right now there just standing back there pointing fingers.
