Some interesting things on the depth chart. Just a few points of interest at first glance.
- Michael Coe gets the start ahead of Emanuel Davis at half
- Marcellus Bowman is back on the roster but is slotted has Simoni Lawrence's backup with Taylor Reed still starting in the middle ... please lets not be silly, put Bowman back at middle backer
-Sam Scott gets a shot at d-end ... I had no idea Antonio Coleman has been a starter since July, I don't know if that's shame on me or shame on him ... just kidding, can't believe I've never noticed him though ...... BUT WE NEED SOME PRESSURE ASAP, I don't care who is wreaking havoc but we need some sacks, and Ray is the perfect target
-SImmons starting at right guard with Figueroa coming back to play right tackle ... Olson staying at the backside tackle spot ... must be the best Frankenstein creation Austin and Condell could come up with this week, shows little faith in our back up guards IMO
-Koch listed as backup to Tasker with Ellingson getting the start in the slot ...it's a nice problem to have because I like all three of them ... I feel all three are great slot options, but I'd rather have Koch starting out wide if I had to choose, but Tasker is fine
-The fact that Austin refuses to even dress another RB tells you how much he values them in his offense as an actual threat ... in a pinch throw Dell or Prime in there and you still have a solid blocking back so Austin is happy ... am I the only one who sees it this way??? I'm so frustrated with the lack of a running back in our offense, hope Madu gets his fair share of touches tomorrow
FInally, boy does it look sweet to see "Tim Hortons Field" as the location, can't wait, the stadium looks unbelievable and really is amazing up close, can't wait to actually step inside and take in a game in the new barn ... wish I was going tomorrow :x
I like our chances though, especially with Collaros at the helm instead of Masoli. This is when the official CFL season begins, and with all our East games on the back end, no better time to start moving out of the basement than tomorrow. This season is so far from over its laughable ... really, because the East is so bad, I like our chances at a home playoff date, tomorrow could be key in whether that's a EDSF or a EDF game we host.
