As for the positive.....
-Duron Carter at times looks too good for this league.
-The difference between Cato this year and last years version is remarkable. With him its only a question of time.
-Nik Lewis is not only hanging in there but is a vital productive part of the offence,
-Kevin Glenn can still get the job done.
Now for the negative......
-Perhaps Boris Bede misses Tanner Marsh? On FGs he looked horrible!
-Duron Carter needs to grow up fast. Yes the Ottawa coach flopped like a soccer player in the penalty box, but that's no excuse. When he is in the game he's sooooo good, but after he was thrown out, the Als weren't the same.
-Brouillette is not or never will be a CFL caliber safety, no speed, no ball skills. Like Chip Cox, great around the LOS but can't cover.
-For all of his devotion to the Als and the League, Jim Popp should and probably will be going to the HOF (wherever it is). It is clear to me however, that he is unable to manage his team on field and keep his team focused. Too many penalties, dumb challenges and general chaos do not inspire confidence. Let Jim do what Jim does best...build a roster that will dominate the league for a decade...he's done it before! To be competitive we need a full time professional coach.
-Whoever called a running play when the team was way behind (which caused a an apparently serious injury to Sutton) should be fired.
-While Jim is doing his GM job FULL time, let him rebuild our secondary.
-Can someone tell whoever is in charge of officiating that they don't have to throw a flag EVERY play? Yes many were deserved, but between the penalties and the challenges, there is no flow to the game.
All this being said, the Als lost game that they very well could of won, to a very good team.
