Top 10 Good and Bad Ticat moments last sason ( 2008 ) - Let's hear yours
OBIE trading the heart and soul of the team in Zeke Moreno for Tom Canada. Only to have Tom claim he was injured and cauing the deal to be reneged . Moreno was already in
Winnipeg and saw their playbook , so we tried to choose another player and settled for the Bombers first round draft pick in the 2009 draft
OBIE keeping Coach Taffe after such a horribly coached season in 2007 .
The very poorly run defence by Coach Creehan .
An invisible Pass Rush all year as they gave up on Keith early and Nautin Mckay could never get things going likley due to injury . They never really brought in any good Dlineman to compete.
5 Getting rid of Armour and trying to replace him with Mariuz . Ray is a great guy but not a starting linebacker in this league as he doesn't have the speed or strength required .
6 Casey Printers could never get going . Not sure what the problem is .
7 Jesse Lumsden getting injured over and over and then not comitting to a new contract
8 Signing Kenton Keith . This guy is not a starting running back in this league .
9 Not getting a legit American Offensive Tackle to give our QB's a fighting chance
10 Overall lack of abilty to bring in Quality import players to compete . We did not see a good import olineman or dlineman all year .
1 . Trading for DB Chris Thompson . This guy got better as the year went on and was our most consistent defender .
The emergence of Quinton Porter . I am excited to see what this guy can do this year .
The contunued development of Chris Baumann . I think he is ready to start and break out in this league .
A good find at WR in Prechae Rodriguez and great to have him learn on the job .
5 A good find in all -heart running back Tre Smith .
Good trade with BC for Markeith Knowlton . He is a keeper at the wide side linebacker .
7 Signs of stardom in Jesse Lumsden. That big game against the argos was awesome .
8 The positive attitude of Marcel B after taking over as head coach .
9 Nick Setta - solid and steady as always .
10 The devlopement and opportunity to play for many of our young Canadian players ( Dyakowski , Rempel , Baumann ) and a good draft getting Barker and Samuel
Giguere ( with NFL COLTS ) ,
Sorry... a lot of hype much like John Avery but little production... much like John Avery.
I would take Terry Cauley over KK in a heartbeat. Cauley and a healthy Lumsden, would lead the league once again in average yards rushed.
Very nice job BG, you summed up the season very well.
I could also mention Printers and his penchant for throwing picks that were returned for TDs and the teams lack of ability to convert 3 and 1, and the Chris Leak fiasco in camp, and watching Armour walk away to the bad.
Watching the team run the ball so well, the continued emergence of Setta as the best kicker in the CFL, and the effort of Tre Smith every time he touched the ball to the good.
