    If we are going to do that, would you not just go 4 Canadians? If O'Donnell and Figueroa can play tackle, You have Rottier, Sorenson, Groulx and Beard to cover 3 positions, you could do a lot worse than that.

    You may need that with all the American receivers we want to keep on the field.

    Bowman
    Zylstra
    Hazelton
    Mitchell
    Williams
    Stafford

    That is an embarrassment of riches at that position.

    I don't think O'Donnell is an every down left tackle. IMO if we were gonna use him at tackle he'd be better as a right tackle since his footwork is already suited for that since he's starting as the right guard. I don't think we have a Canadian that can play that left tackle spot comfortably enough to keep Reilly from getting killed. Having said that- O'Donnell was an upgrade from what Kelly showed. That scares me a bit.

    Ruby can play Left Tackle as well Matt is well suited to RT in my opinion
    Run the Ball up the gut around the horn it does not matter. We run we win what is so difficult to understand.

    I've often wondered why they didn't move him to RT considering he accounted himself rather well there in Cincy's camp
    I hit them as hard as I could on the mouth right from the start of the game so they were thinking this was going to be a long day. Sooner or later one of us had to quit. And it wasn't going to be me.

    IMO, d-line is one place it can work out for a CFL rookie coming up. A week ago I wouldn't have cared but now a DT to fill in for Sewell in the rotation could be a nice boost and I know we still need to find a young heir at DE with all 3 Americans over 30
