Other then gettin rid of Bellefaile (sp?) none really. But that still does not put the Bomber automatically above the Riders. But the Riders still have a great core of players that can get the job done. They need another reciever to complement Dominguez, and they need a qb to get the ball to these recievers. O-line is still solid, arguably the best in the CFL. D-line solid, LB's are above average on the outside and average in the middle. DB's are good.
Crandell can do an adequate job, he should be a bit better then last year with another year in the organization. Hopefully Condell does a good job making a scheme that Crandell can execute. I would rather have a different QB, but I know Crandell can do the job if he isn't asked to do everything.
I will freely admit that I am pissed off at Shivers right now, I don't think he is doing anything. I don't blame Barret, cause I think he is working his ass off, but he is only the head coach and assistant GM, if The GM isn't working its hard to blame the guys below him.
But the Riders are currently having training sessions down south, so there should be at least some new faces in training camp.
But to say its "as good as done" is pretty premature.
