In order to make it seem that football operations has not lost faith in Casey Creehan
they can say that due to the fact that Casey is a first year Defensive Co-ordinator
they are bringing in Greg Marshall to take over the Defensive -line for him
so he can devote himself full time to his Defensive Co-ordinator duties.
and then Greg Marshall could work with him on game planning
and selecting the right players to play and sticking with them.
This isn't my idea but I liked it right away and I have
thought it is a good idea from early in the season.
I believe it would result in a big improvement in these areas
and if it resulted in our d-line getting consistent pressure
then our d-backs would not be hung out to dry so often.
Rich Stubler always liked to have 4 experienced guys on the D-line
and rotate a 5th guy to give him experience and them a breather
That is a good idea but Casey is rotating in rookies D-linemen
even though the other d-linemen are not experienced enough
to make up for many mistakes that the rookies are making.
Most of them have only 2 or so years of CFL experience.
And the rookie d-lineman go in at DT' ans DE
They are learning two jobs at the same time! Huh?
It is not always the player with the most talent
who should be playing, experience counts a lot.
Do you remember how Greg stuck with the more experienced
Sandy Beveridge instead of the #1 draft pick Dylan Barker?
Geoff Tisdale and Ryan Hinds must have really screwed up
when I didn't notice, why else would Casey/Creehan have
those two experienced d-backs sitting on the bench?
Maybe Greg could find a way to get those guys
and other experienced players like Eddie Steele
and Mike Eiben out ther on our Defence.
