Defensive Line played well and has signs of being a decent unit. They generated pressure, smashed up the Winnipeg O line.
Defensively we fell short, but that's due to the fact that we never make any interceptions and play too much zone defense and not enough blitzing.
Offensive Line looked decent for parts of the game, Winnipeg is a good front 4 so they are going to get pressure at some point.
Mcacalum is amazing, guy can punt, kick, sing, dance, he can do it all--
Listening to the POST GAME Lions show the Radio Crew is talking about WHAT i talked about 4 weeks ago and IDENTIFIED easily--
These are the guys who need to be replaced on this team--
Davis Sanchez- He had a great career, is a solid cover db and is really quick, but he was good in the early 2000's and was starting to exhibit signs of his best days being behind him in 2007 when Jason Tucker blew right by him when Sanchez was on Calgary. Sanchez is cheating RETIREMENT, but as I mentioned if someone is going to pay you 100 grand in this recession who is going to voluntarily walk away.
Ryan Philips- It looks like he is not wearing any pads or is he that skinny? Hard to have a Finesse defensive back, with CAM WAKE he looked amazing, as his lack of tackling was hidden by the fact that opposing Qb's had no time to set their feet and throw on us with WAKE rushing.
Dante Marsh- Nothing really negative to say other than he has to make some interceptions at some point and I wonder if we cant find a younger 25 year old STUD from the states.
Dobson Collins- He has speed, but he looks to be a guy who has questionable hands and doesent seem to catch in traffic really well. I think Stephen Black or Nick Moore are better options for sure.
Travis Lulay- I watched him enough at this point and can tell you I think overall LULAY is a good leader, is fairly good at not turnovers, but I have one major issue- ACCURACY--
Lulay missed Peterson on the deep corner with less than 3 minutes left- That was a THROW a PRO QB has to make. At empire vs Hamiton his deep shots are ending up out of bounds, he doesent have good DEEP TOUCH such as RICKY RAY does-
Lulay takes a little long to read the defense and does not THROW BEFORE THE CUTS of the receiver- Lulay needs to have PRE SNAP reads where he has an idea of the defense and where he might go with the ball? Ricky Ray, dickenson used to anticipate where to throw the ball and throw it as the Receiver makes his BREAK-- I have watched LULAY every snap and have noticed he hangs onto the ball too long--
Offensive Coordinator- Tried new things, looked like we are copying what CGY is doing with the Intellectually CHALLENGED HENRY BURRIS.
Please get this clown CHRIS BURNS off the air- He makes exuces for every single LIon coach. He makes reference to Wally being the winningest coach ever, but he is also the most LOSING coach of all time-
The crossing pattern that dobson Collins caught early in the game worked, and I am not sure why they didnt go back to that play- We used to run that play with CLERMONT- Where a player would run a long crosser across the field--
For those of you who were not aware CHRIS BURNS was a big part of the losing teams in Ottawa Rough Riders, I am not sure why this guy is on the radio? He knows absolutely nothing and sounds like such a Homer.
Overall once the scouting improves and this Neil Mcevoy scout is let go and ROY SHIVERS also is let go, BC will be back--
BC is actually a pretty good team, they had the CHANCE to win every single game except Edmonton all with a SEMI PRO secondary and a questionable QB that was heavily marketed by the CFl as a STAR player due to winning 3 games last season lol-
One trip to TEXAS and FLORIDA we will be back on TOP- We need young blood, we need to HIRE coaching staff or give someone who knows about Football to get our SCOUTING up to PRO level.
I am not sure where the Lions are finding these players from, but I can assure you that none of them are really any good-
We need PLAYMAKERS and we are not finding any playmakers--
Oh i forgot we signed another teams castoff TAD KORNEGAY while Bradley Robinson is available and young and can actually TACKLE and hit.
TIM BROWN looked good, Sean Gore is looking really good, Mcallum, JAMAL ROBERTSON showed some hard running and heart- keron played good along with Eliminean--
Coaches coached a good game, it was not the coaches fault, Wally did nothing wrong by gambling there, the IDENTITY of winners is to not play scared and GO FOR THE WIN-
You win your team over by SHOWING confidence and going for it--
Good job Wally, once our scoring gets up to par we will be a 11-7 next year.
