I know everyone is all over GLATT and certainly he is not a middle linebacker in CFL football. He is not too bad in passing downs, almost showing that he is good enough to cover but not strong enough to tackle and shed off blocks.
I notice that when the Lions lose that some players are basically mailing it in which is FINE, because there are plenty of players sitting at home ready to play if called upon.
I don't care about NAMES and what you did in the PAST, its what hAVE YOU DONE FOR ME LATELY--
Dante MARSH- Teams have figured out that basically although he is quick and reacts well that he is a terrible corner, he has poor ball skills and makes no interceptions. He is especially susceptible to any double moves. He can only turn around and run with a receiver. He is also undersized and cannot cover the bigger receivers--
Glatt- For obvious reasons he should be playing special teams, and come in on passing downs, but we NEED 3 good tackling FEROCIOUS linebackers--
Brent JOHNSON- Is it me or does he show up once every four or five games, this is a player who was an ALL Star, watching him vs CGY, and Winnipeg he is MAILING it in, getting NO PASS RUSH- He looks smaller and slower, He was at his best in his first few years after OHIO STATE when he was likely bigger and stronger having played in USA-- He looks like he is not focussed on football and is not an ALL STAR rusher- I think we can get good value if we trade him because of his name-
Barron Miles- He brings a lot of things to the team, including blocked kicks, smarts, and a good brain in the secondary- HOWEVER looking at succesfull team they don't have a 37 year old SAFETY- They all have safeties in the mid twenties to late twenties and a safety that CAN HIT and cover a lot of ground-
Barron Miles is just a step slow, and is exposed and he rarely makes a good HIT and stands back to deep in the secondary and teams know this as he is not making interceptions anymore.
FOLEY- He has to go he is not impressive they can find a better player I am sure-
I think Phillips is capable, Banks is good, Hunt is okay and Armour can work well with Mckenzie--
