    Ya off the roster will be Stafford and Jackson (as well as some D moves) and on will be Stangby and Jones, then we have to decide who to sit. For my money I would sit Jones this week and let Stangby and Ross handle the kickoffs.

    This is going to be one of the more interesting depth charts in awhile as we could conceivably be adding Walton, Ellingson, Jones, Unamba and Orange but who will come off to make room and where will the go? We have two coming off for sure (Stafford and Jackson) leaving 1 DB and 2 linebackers to come off. My guesses for those would be Bazzie and Walker at LB and Taylor at HB.

    Sounds like AJ wasn't overly fond of Jacksons style, will be interesting to see if there is a difference.

    I think so and it could be the core of our starting lineup with minor tweaks during the weeks depending on injury. I think Bazzie and Walker although I thought Walker played pretty well and if Umamba went down he's definately a good one to have around

    If so, then why did so long for a personnel change?

    not real sure to be honest, only Maas and AJ can answer that one. The only thing I can think of is that they like the returner to also be a back up running back but that seems a little short sighted to lock in on a position like that.

    Re: 2019 Season Thread

    Donut Dave has pushed the narrative that we made this trade because Jackson got hurt leaving us without a returner.

    Am I the only one who thinks this move would’ve happened regardless of the injury? Jackson had 2 good games after the bye but he’s been ineffective in the others and was downright horrible against Calgary.

    I got the feeling the fumble was the straw that broke the camels back.

    I think Dave Campbell probably has it right. I have a feeling the Esks were probably looking at releasing somebody else to make some roster room anyway; when Jackson went down they probably need to revise things and move a player with value to another club that actually brought some return... or in our case, a returner. Of course based on the play of Jackson, it is very possible they have been thinking about this move for a while. I have no idea why they waited until he went down with an injury to put Shai Ross back there. They should have been alternating to look at options a couple games ago.

    It's funny because I think most of Jackson's more successful returns were through finding a gap and running like hell. It's when he was dancing around back there that things went bad. Should have listened to the coaches.

    I dunno i think he was going to be gone after his showing in Calgary. Three kick off returns under 5 yards ? Good bye.



    Get the ball go forward. No stopping, no reversing field, no dancing.

    I agree but how much better can our defence get? Special teams and and inconsistent offence have been our Achilles heal so far.

    I agree with you. The defense has been pretty darn good even with all the injuries, it's the offense and special teams that has dragged the team down. The Esks are real good at moving the ball up and down the field but once they get inside the 20, they can't put it in the endzone even close to being good enough. The special teams are what they are. Different coaches, different guys, same result.
