The first issue I would tackle is go find the best defensive mind available and bring that person to Hamilton. The best and nothing but the best. Don’t worry about the 5,000.00 fine for tampering, it didn't stop the AR# H^%$#
The second issue I would tackle is go over the game film with the new Defensive Co-ordinator and the position coaches who are staying with the team. Once that task is completed,I would go over the game film once again. After that task is completed sit down again and go over the list once again. Why do this exercise four times you ask? Obviously, whowever is responsible for talent or judging talent has done a p-poor job of selecting talent on the Oline, DlIne,the secondary and running back. I am sure I will get some push back for identifying running back but if our running back can not match the intensity of a Chad Kakkert, your waisting your time, money and game film.
The third thing I would do is identify our canadian player content, position by position and map out a succession plan and player developement. Get that kid who kicks for Laval at any cost on your negotiation list future considerations or whatever or try an Toronto Ar^%$ player tampering tactic. It works.
The fourth thing I would do is look at the Toronto Ar%$^%ts game film and match any future player selection from their roster and mirror the talent, position by position except quarterback of course.
The fifth thing I would do is stop making excuses like there are too many first year rookie players for this thing to work. That excuse is getting old considering the Ar% Ho^% had five or more at my count first year players who made an immediate possitive imapct on results of the team.
The last thing I would do is send out an apology to every season ticket holder explaining why other teams can turn things around and why you are unable to do so and what you are going to do to fix matters permanently.
