Agreed 100%; Popp is on his fourth attempt at playing head coach, and the results from all four attempts speak for themselves (sorry Richard but it's the truth; he's just not head coaching material).
Again, agreed 100%. Dinwiddie's out of his depth, and AC is not ready yet, if ever; if the new HC keeps him as QB coach, I'm fine with that.
Agreed 100%; Cox, Parker, Brown, Stamps, Lewis among others.
Agreed 100%. See Stamps and Lewis above. Good example for comparison's sake is Toronto. They went out and got, in the offseason, receivers Gurley, Hazleton, and Elliott. Unknowns, but man they've played great and given the Argos something that Lewis and Stamps have not given us. Younger, cheaper, faster. . . that's the way to go.
If you mean like Ocho, Sam, et al, okay. But if we got a retread who was cheaper, younger, and faster, I'm okay with that.
You know the inability to adjust to the new rules was the reason given for Tisdale's release. . . but look at Parker, he still hasn't adjusted.
For sure on that. I detest his love affair with three-man fronts. It's been better once Hebert returned from injury, as since then usually one of the 2 MLBs (Hebert and whoever else is there given injury) usually blitzes so it's still 4 man pressure. . . but not often enough for my liking. Our secondary and LBs cannot cover receivers long enough (hello Chip Cox) especially given the new contact rules (hello Billy Parker), so three-man pressure is insane. And please, please, please, quit bringing Marco Brouilette up to the line to blitz or fake blitz and dropping Cox back to safety. It's a recipe for disaster. If we keep Cox, I don't ever want to see him back in pass coverage; we should use him if we keep him the way Don Matthews used to use Duane Butler.
Yes; especially on the O and D lines. Some (younger, cheaper, quicker) version of a Charleston Hughes, for example.
I'll also agree with d&p that it is time to cut bait with Jim Popp, but probably won't happen. . . and that is scary, because what decent head coach is going to want to come to Montreal with Popp as his boss, knowing that his boss wants his job?
And. . . as for Cato, I agree again. Not sold on the guy. Still seems to me to have more potential than the other stiffs like Crompton, Marsh, and Boone. . . but that potential will never be developed adequately in the "system" we play on offence and with a totally dysfunctional management/coaching set up.
