i think Steve may have meant corps and losing Speedy is the, referred to, hit taken.
Or, perhaps "core" was intended, as a reference to Speedy, being the "core" of our receiving corps?
Either way, I agree with his idea of going with two backs. And, they need to get the ball into their hands, more often, in ways other than the play option handoffs. In Ottawa, Green averaged 4.1 yds on the handoff plays and averaged 22.5 yds, all YAC, on his two receptions.
This is where Jones proves his worth as a coach.
All the decades of experience and expertise have to mean something
If it’s just shrug and hope for the best …
What exactly is his value?
What makes him an offensive “guru” ?
GET AGGRESSIVE TIGER-CATS, enough of the wait and see attitude and letting leads slip away. I’ve noticed with this team when they play the role of being in the lead, instead of adding to it, they sit on the lead, stupid plays or bad penalties just add fuel to the fire for Ottawa and other teams to get back in the game and take the lead.
The Tiger-Cats have shot themselves enough times this year and it just brings back bad memories of the recent past seasons of doing the same old style of crappy football!
It’s time to get Aggressive, it’s time to get a rush on the QB and a good sack attack, and drill Harris into the turf at THF!
Run the clock but most importantly dominate and run the score up and don’t look back, if Ottawa gets aggressive with our players answer the call and put the Hammer down on the RedBlacks!
No. Even IF his foot has healed fully, he only played in 2 games last year due to injuries. He would also NOT be eligible for the playoffs. Remember - he injured his foot on virtually the first play of his first practice to a sufficient extent that he was CUT. Bringing him back at this stage of the season makes no sense whatsoever.
It wasn’t the loss of Banks that cost us the game,
IT WAS STUPID PENALTIES!
Interference in the endzone
Offside at the goal line
Illegal kick (again) >:(
We have 2 games and many more practices to get Sinkfield up to speed , who I would imagine will take Banks spot as slot. Sinkfield is a huge talent
The REC’s will have to make plays, get open and catch the ball, Tolliver can still return from his concussion protocol.
We will need to run the ball more with Greene and instead of Dressing 2 RB’s as some have suggested
maybe it is time for Masoli to use those read option plays he is so good at running and take off with the ball once the “D” starts keying on Greene It creates havoc on opposing defences.
With Masoli at QB we already have 2 RB’s in the backfield
My concern with Jeremiah running the ball frequently is that eventually he is going to get tagged by an opposition tackler. We know that both Ottawa and Montreal have guys that make borderline to late hits, and guys that make helmet to helmet or shoulder to helmet hits. Even if they are penalized or fined, it does not protect the runner.
When Austin used those plays, Jeremiah was the second or third string QB, not the starter. I don’t like the idea of featuring our starting QB as a regular run option and exposing him too frequently to those types of hits. Would rather see two RBs if the running game is to be featured.
