Its pretty clear what is happening--
Look at the offensive scouting..
They brought in Kelly Campbell, Maurice Mann, Rector, Whitlock, Ephraim Hill, all within the last 2 years----
So they obviously have brought in great offensive players including Ricky Ray and Zabranski who is also good--
ON Defense they have not brought players with talent like they have above. Even the young ones they have will never see the field as it seems HALL likes the Veterans and doesent like young players--
I believe Hall does not play the best players, you mean to tell me if Malveaux was cut, any team would pick him up? How about Kai Ellis? How about Richardson, could he start for another team at safety???
Today is was plain and obvious look at CGY defense, at least their players are fast and Strong, you can teach them how to be in the right positions to make plays---
Edmonton Defense is clearly just not good, where is Rashad Jeanty? Montex Murphy, Montford, remember the days of Donnie Brady and Shannon Garrett---
What has happened is that Edmonton has always used veterans and after their Grey Cup win of 2005 they have basically none of that Defense in tact from that season. They didnt play young players ever and just relies on free agents to build a Defense with essentially washed up players- They may have the experience adn smarts, but they are far too slow to play in the CFL--
They need to rebuild now, play anyone who is Young and can RUN and is hungry--
Burris does not look good vs any other CFL team but when he plays EDMONTON he looks like the best ever, Lewis and Copeland go absolutely nuts, imagine if RAMBO was playing- Rambo would catch for 200 yards easily on this Defense--
TJ Hill is another player who is undersized and was cut by MTL, of course we are there to pick him up alos in Edmonton, just like we picked up KAI ELLIS and ROMERO from Montreal. If tehse players are not good enough to make MONTREAL then why is Edmonton picking them up?
Start wtih using Brad Robinson in the secondary and Tristan Jackson at corner, he is money on the corner--
Also consider using someone else at safety, hurry back Gordon, he is physical and can hit, I think he will help this Defense a lot, he can blitz and sack the QB and is good at hitting people---
BRing in 2 NFL cuts at pass rush and send Kai Ellis and Peach away--
