First of all, Casey Printers gets paid way too much for what he did this year! Quinton Porter has played effective and he should get looked at for a starting position next year. Richie Williams is still a lot better quarterback then what Casey did for us this year also. I even like the looks of that new guy Adam Tafralis. And if they are worried about the lack of experience at the quarterback position, I think Marcus Crandell would be a better addition to this team rather then Casey Printers.
At 500,000 dollars for casey Printers we could get rid of him and use that money for something else.
Max 140,000 for a Veteran Offensive Lineman
Max 140,000 for a Veteran Defensive Lineman or Defensive End
Max 140,000 for a veteran Receiver
Total : 420,000 dollars
add another 100,000 dollars to that and get another veteran player for one of those positions if possible.
Its just something to think about. It would make our team a lot better thats for sure.
As for our current offensive line, i would maybe keep just two of those players..Marwan Hage and George Hudson. I think we should be going after two offensive tackles next year with experience.
As for our receivers, Rodriguez and Earnest Jackson are keepers. I think Earnest Jackson is a lot better receiever then Tony Miles. Miles had his time and hes washed up now i think. I also like Chris Bauman and Chris Davis. Scott Mitchell could get released and it wouldnt bother me. Same goes for Chad Rempel and Pat Woodcock. If we add a veteran experienced receiver next year it would help us a lot also.
OUr running back situation is a mess. Jesse Lumsden gets hurt all the time and he wasnt worth paying for this year...BUT.....I also think that when he does play he is very effective. I think they should bring him back but sign a contract for him based on the number of games he plays and based on performance. I would like to see him used more as a fullback next year rather then a running back.
Our best running back this year was Terry Caulley.. I would like him to be back next year along with Tre Smith. Im not too sure about Kenton Keith. I havent seen much of him so far and would bring him back for the off season but if he doesnt cut it release him.
As for the defence, our secondary looks pretty good. Jykine Bradley, Chris Thompson and Geoff Tisdale are really good. With Dylan Barker coming back next year, I can see Robinson has a good backup as defensive back. Gordon wasnt very impressive and i would like to see a change possibly in that position.
Our linebackers are not bad but i would replace Mariuz. I think Cameron Siskowic played really well as a Middle linebacker this year. Much better then Cornelius Anthony. But i would put Anthony in Mariuz's spot. I like the whole idea of Anthony and Knowlton on the outside and Siskowic in the middle.
Our Defensive lineman are what im concerned about. I honestly think they all stink. That newcomer Sasha Lancaster I would give him more of a look for next year and bring back Nautyn McKay Loescher and Terrance Patrick in the offseason to see if they can improve but other then that i could care less if anyone else comes back. We need some major help next year in this area. Like i said before, you can get rid of Casey Printers and possibly bring in two veteran D lineman next year to help them out.
