I know we had a dissapointing year this year but i think there is a turnaround coming. We have so much to look forward to next year. Yeah we had some good players who came to the Ticats organization this year but i have to admit there were some players that i doubted. With a few changes in teh line up and using our good players to our full advantage is the key. Especially when talking about corey holmes.
But before we can look forward to next year I think there has to be a few changes.I think once we get a head coach which is pretty much our first priority we can start fixing this team. Marcel and the new coach can figure out what quarterback to bring in to help out Jason Maas.
I think we should bring in Henry Burris or Kerry Joseph to training camp. Casey Printers is a possibility too if hes available. Maybe even a guy like Spergon Wynne who looks good or a Buck Pierce from B.C. I dont think we should just hand over the starter job to Jason Maas. Make him work for it.
Our offensive line needs work and we need to add some good tackles. We need a few good receivers to help out Davon Fowlkes and DJ Flick. Corey Holmes should be the running back and Jesse Lumsden as the fullback. Put them both in the backfield at the same time and using Anthony Davis and Julian Radlein as backups. Those are the changes i would make on offence.
As for the defence, we have a pretty good crew already if of course Jason Goss comes back.
I like Sam Young and lawrence Gordon as corner backs.
I also like Tay Cody and jason Goss as defensive backs.
As for the safety thats still to be debated i think.
We need to get someone in there like Beveridge or maybe even a Renard Cox or a Phillip Gauthier.
I dont think wayne shaw played good at safety.
As for the linebackers, I would look for a new middle linebacker. I would move Agustin barrenchea to outside linebacker and i would ask bobby Brooks back to training camp to try out. I like JoJuan Armour also as a outside linebacker.
As for the front line, Tim Cheatwood and James Cotton are awesome defensive ends and Clinton Wayne and Roger Dunbrack are pretty impressive also. I would also keep Anthony Collier and Steve Josue.
I was thinking since we do have 4 solid defensive ends in Cheatwood, Cotton, Collier and Josue maybe we could slide one of them to middle linebacker.
I think these are the kinds of changes that can change this team. Its not totally the team itself, i think its just how we use the players we haev already with some minor changes.
But overall i think were going to have a great year next year. Everything will come together. Im predicting that were going to at least win 9 games next year with these kinds of changes and to bring in a good mobile quarterback and some top quality receivers.
GO CATS GO!!!!
