why does this guy not get more playing time? He is amazing and should be in there instead of justin
Justin isnt bad, at HB. Cody and Bradley should be starting on the outside.
justin plays outside though so he would eather have to move inside or just spend more time on the bench and im down for eather of those ideas if bradleys playing
There are a few guys that should not be starting
agreed! BROOKS at MLB, 100% with yah
i still dont know how he isnt starting. and does anyone even know how much time brooks got i dont rember seing him out there that much
Not to sound like a homer, but what exactly did Auggie do wrong today? I do remember Brooks getting pancaked an a Edwards running play.
yeah i remember that, i also think that was Mtl biggest run.
Bradley started the game at corner, and platooned there with Justin throughout the game. They both played well, as far as I could see. I agree that Justin should take Martin's spot at HB, and Bradley should start full-time at corner with Cody. I would also sit Shaw and put Gordon out there. At least Gordon can tackle. How many times did Shaw miss tackles on receivers and running backs who ran downfield into his zone? It was frustrating to watch.
The defense played much better over the middle, pass-coverage-wise, when Brooks was at MLB in the second half. I would seriously look at Brooks to start in Calgary.
We fine tuned the offense during the winter but chose to "stand pat" with the defence...the secondary is porous and their is very little pressure on the QB from the d-line...they are not playing smart defence at all :thdn:
I AGREE AUGGIE IS NOT AS GOOD AS THE IMPORT LINEBACKERS BUT THE ONE PROBLEM YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER IS THE AMERICAN CANADIAN RATIO THAT MARSHALL HAS TO DO HIS LINE UP BY
Which ratio? The CFL ratio or the one that we use to start too many Canadians?
I agree that Bradley should start, and Martin should sit.
I also like Gordon over Shaw. This guy has some serious pop, and crunched some guys on special teams. Not too sure about his speed though.
Brooks should start over Auggie, and I'm pretty sure we don't have a ratio issue, particularly with all the Canadian receivers and linebackers.
If this doesn't work, I would like to see them bring Babers back, or Mr. McCarthy has his work cut out for him.
On defense we need to be better over the middle, stop giving other teams 10 yards off the ball, and cover tighter. Those passes to Cahoon were typical of the big gainers we give up over the middle. If AC was on, things would have been even worse as a number of passes were overthrown to open receivers.
