what about continuity? letting the guys gel and come together? no revolving door? dont want rejects from other teams? he didnt do much last time he was here? if he was so great why isnt he playing somewhere then?............(insert hypocritical excuse here)
Some time in a players career they say stupid remarks such as bad mouthing their X teams and city. In Scott's case - he may have to eat a little crow. If he can play and add to the LB core - I say yes. Marius is very much over rated and at best a special teams player.
Im wondering what you guys see in Mariuz that you dont like ?? What makes you guys the experts on outside linebackers ?? I thought from what i saw of Mariuz last game he played hard and tough .
Coe is a backup now at best and if brought in would be a depth move at most . Why is it that any player let go our or out thier and not on a team in your opinion should be brought in to play for Hamilton ??
What changes did the ARGOS make at LB when we rushed for over 300 yards against them ?? Did they bring Coe in for a look see ?? NO !!!
Because they had a great opportunity to pick up a better linebacker for nothing. What was his name again? Oh yeah, JoJuan Armour. How funny is this if we end up with Coe?
Having said that, he was an excellent linebacker for Calgary and was a starter for several seasons. How come no one has signed him? I have no idea. Players get cut. You can say that about any player. If he's so good, how come his former team didn't want him. You could say that any time you're making a trade. If this guy is any good, why would you trade him? I really think he just lost his position to the Big Dog.
For some reason I'm thinking Coe has a knee problem. Can anyone confirm or refute this? I'd welcome a look at him. If you're going to start a Canadian at linebacker, Coe may be the guy you want. I'm not sold on Mariuz, and never was. I'm really concerned about lack of size in our linebackers. They are solid tacklers, but no run stoppers that can really lay the smack down.
Bringing in a guy or two isn't a revolving door. Taffe did say that he didn't want to have a revolving door, but if an opportunity came up for a good player or two you'd have to take a look.
Do we have to do what the Argos do? Maybe the Argos should look at making some changes.
No one claimed to be an expert. If you like him, then that’s fine. I don’t like him at linebacker because he just doesn’t have the size or strength in this configuration. I don’t see him around the ball until it’s deep almost in the secondary. Armour played the same position last year and you saw him all over the ball carriers, and in the backfield. Maybe Mariuz would be better playing the other side if we had someone solid at his position. But, there was a gaping hole left in the defense. It has to be closed and Mariuz isn’t doing it. Obviously, some experts on the Cats coaching staff think he’s worth a look.
This isn’t every player that’s been released. There’s been alot of players released this year, dozens of them that the Cats haven’t pursued. Stop exaggerating. I really thought we were going to see Coe in training camp actually but they were set with the in house defense. Obviously, they feel that something is lacking. And they are right.
