Top of the Depth Chart: Hamilton Tiger-Cats

The winds of change blew through the Hamilton Tiger-Cats this off-season, and some of those changes make it super-easy to predict an opening night depth chart. Some, do not.

Good analysis. I think the 'Cats are going to be top of the East this year, as long as Bo has no issues. They are really solid on both sides of the ball. A few issues on the back end but pressure up front helps a lot & 'Cats have the players to do that. Butler gives them a run game they haven’t had in a long time & they have some VG receivers. I like what I see there.

I think the Cats have built a very strong team. I guess they want to win the GC at home in front of their fans. Well they certainly put an awful lot of the CAP into this build. Question is … Have they put too much and will exceed the Cap Max by season end? Their historical foe down the QE highway (Toronto) has been doing this CAP thing for a few years now and haven’t been caught. Did the Cats get the process ideas from them?

It’s been a long 50 years for Tiger Cats fans, with only 2 Grey Cups since their win in1972. This could be their year. The Cats would have been first in the East in 2022 if Dane Evans hadn’t blown 4 games with dumb turnovers. Mitchell will solve that problem. Addison’s return and Butler’s acquisition will give him some tools to work with, and getting J’Gared Davis and Chris Edwards will strengthen an already sound defence. Now if they get to the Grey Cup game, can they avoid dumb mistakes …………
