Grey Cup; 1965 is a standout - 22-16 over Winnipeg: classic Ti-Cats write up in the above two links.

Whoa, no Tommy Grant? The guy is in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, so I think he deserves a mention. Also, I wouldn't have Tony Gabriel on there. When I think of Gabriel I think of the Ottawa Rough Riders. Sure, he played here and won a Grey Cup, but he's synonymous with the Rough Riders, not the Tiger-Cats.

I Agree about Gabriel ....Tommy Grant will replace him at receiver .

I found it difficult to find many quality linebackers and running backs but plenty of quality receivers. qb's and dlinemen

Similarly, when I, and I'd think most people, think of Hank Illesic the thoughts are of him as an Eskimo or an Ar...
The punter here should be either Cam Fraser or Joe Zuger.

One of the earliest posters on this site (Zuger9) one who may no longer be with us as he just stopped posting one day, gave us this great all-time depth chart.

Here was the discussion of the last version of the chart.

Clements was well on his way to a high placing in the QB category had he not been traded to Winnipeg following the '83 season..

Either way, he had four memorable seasons here. :thup:

Yes, this was a superb piece of work by Zuger9, who I remember fondly. I don't know what happened to him... as you say, he just stopped posting. I don't see him on the list of members any longer. I hope nothing untoward happened.

He did a lot of work in putting this together. I remember many members contributing comments and suggestions, me included. He was very gracious and knowledgeable in his replies to the suggestions, accepting some and rejecting others. No one objected to him having the final say. The final product is hard to argue with.

One thing I recall he did emphasize was that the first names on the list were intended as the starters for each position, but there was no sequence intended in the second and third names.

Am I crazy to think Archie Amerson should make this list?

Not at all. One of the issues in doing a list like this is that positions have changed over the years as schemes have evolved. This is especially so on offence. Back in the day, there was no slotback, there was a split end, a tight end and a flanker, and teams tended to have two HBs and a FB. So you get into some apples and oranges comparisons. All good grist for the mill.

Zuger9's depth chart looks pretty much bang on, although there might be a couple of starting spots I still might argue. The question now is whether any players have come up since 2005 to contend for a spot, starting or not. Marwan Hage perhaps? Jamal Johnson maybe? Nick Setta? I'm sure that if Medlock had stuck around another year or two, he would have taken over one of the kicker spots.

By the way it's Gerbear9 not Zuger9 but maybe I should change it to BIGBEN31 :slight_smile:

Actually, I was referring to the depth chart created by user Zuger9 on the link Mark posted, which was last updated in May 2005.

8) Please, at least spell Ralph Sazio's name right !!! It's Ralph...not Ralf :roll:

WOW that ALL TIME TIGER CATS depth chart certainly is good.

gerbear9:
It's not just Ralph....there are several spelling mistakes.
Surely if you like these fella's so much you can spell their names right!
However I agree with many of your choices. Your selection is a great start to the thread.

Voting for the All-Time Tiger-Cats team is underway: http://alltimeteam.ticats.ca/

We'll make a new position group available for voting each week. The quarterbacks kick things off.

I will be voting as often as allowed (and as often as I remember) so my opinions on the best all-time Ticat players are taken into account. I am, however, disappointed that I am yet again not eligible to win any of the prizes just because I don't live in the Hamilton area.
