So now the kid gloves are off. Dinwiddie apparently cursed the hell out of the offensive group at practice yesterday:
[i]“We keep talking a big game. We’re coming out here and messing up plays that we’ve been doing since (mini-camp in April),? he continued, the team returning to practice indoors on Monday at the Bell Sports Complex following a bye week in the schedule. “If that’s what we’re going to do, we’re going to have to replace some guys.
“It’s not hard stuff. That means guys aren’t being true pros right now.?
We'll see whether this tirade has any effect. You can't cut or trade a whole team. And respectfully, I would suggest that this is what you get when you keep guys like Chad Johnson and Eric Deslauriers in the starting rotation. What has either player done? Johnson is washed up. Deslauriers has never done anything in his entire CFL career. Meanwhile, Kyle Graves has yet to see another regular-season action and Gilyard, who was IMO one of the best receivers in preseason, is only practicing now because Green is injured. So it might be true that players need to shape up or ship out. But the coaches are also to blame for poor personnel decisions.
