I have been wondering what our team can do to turn things around. Lots of suggestions have been made by others here and I won't repeat them. So here's a new one, just a little wrinkle or two that might be worth looking at.
Kai Ellis has basically been missing in action at MLB this year. Last year I thought he was good, and then in the Grey Cup he played the game of his life, he was positively dominant. This year, nothing.
It has been suggested that the absence of Philion is the reason, and that because Claybrooks and Romero are no Ed Philions, Ellis is getting blocked out at the point of attack. Maybe.
However, Ellis can also play end and we have just released Truluck. So how's this for an idea.
Shift Ellis to end, he can platoon with Kashama. When Strickland returns, he takes his spot back, Hill stays at the other OLB spot (he looked competent I thought) and we try Diamond Ferri at MLB.
I know size is problematic here, but Ferri plays with reckless abandon and enthusiasm, and maybe that's what we need at MLB just now.
Just a thought, what do you other Als' fans think?
