    He shouldn't be stepping back on the field in this lifetime, IMO.

    Zach's about a rough haircut away from drooling in a cup at this point... Takes more than six games to get over a concussion and he's had a few now so it's just getting worse. How would you like to be Franklin or MBT and lose your job to a guy that's a sack away from being carted off the field? Doesn't really instill confidence in you does it... Toronto is a dumpster fire.
    Sorry everyone for not contributing anything to this board... My bad?

    Gable was a full participant per Dave. Suspect that means Cooper draws short straw unfortunately.
    "This year, we did what we were supposed to do. We fought as a team. We fought as a team. And the fact is, we gotta go back and go to work, to make sure we finish this next time. That's all we gotta do. This right here makes us stronger. Let's understand who we are as a team. Let's understand this right here makes us stronger." - Ray Lewis, January, 2012.

    you could. Hell i'd even be ok if they used both Gable and Jackson... I think at times we need a different look at RB...


    I mean calgary dresses like three RBs out of their 14 ... so i mean if the Esks really wanted to have both Gable and Cooper they could find a way

    Curious to see how many people come out to this. I would go if I were there.

    I'm hearing this is a done deal, but I'll try to get confirmation

    Confirmed.

    Wow. I know we had to do something for our return game...but after all these years, I'm not sure the problem is with the person returning the kick. I assume this is the end of Martese. Putting Jones in also takes away from a possibility to get Cooper into the lineup. Maybe there just weren't enough spots left at receiver, with Daniels coming back?

    Yeah, I'm thinking all our receivers are healthy and we had to make a decision. I like that we are adding a legit returner, but like you, I don't like that this will limit Cooper's field time. Factor in Jones' history of injuries and limited success on offense and I'd say we really didn't gain much here. We shall see. I still think keeping a guy already on the roster (like Shai Ross) return as best he can allows us to add a guy like Cooper to the roster and gives us a better team overall.

    Best of luck to Kenny in Saskatchewan. The guy has really matured into a solid team guy who has given everything he could to both his game and the community.

    Elliot or Daniels can fill that spot..

    I don’t think it’s a great trade... but I’m indifferent on Stafford.. always have been.

    I like this trade, honestly I'm no fan of Stafford's he was a bit better this year than in previous years but I have 0 confidence he would maintain that level. Jones is a Bama guy with speed to burn
    In Rod we trust

    Interesting.... I know zip about Jones.... We had too many of the same recievers in Stafford and Collins.. and last games Collins up'd his game and proved he's worth keeping over stafford

    - - - Updated - - -

    I still think scheme and/or blocking is the main culprit. Though Jackson did ZIP last game to warrant a roster spot any further.

    My 2 cents bad trade, Kenny was 11th in receiving in the league for what I think is a average returner.
    Won't help us at all should have tried Shai Ross on returns or tried Cooper on returns and subbed him sometimes with Gable at RB

    Christion Jones is a great returner with lots of speed; might be their best returner. Problem is, he hasn't been able to break the greenwhites' offensive lineup so he's been on the bench. He's also had some injury trouble.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Martese looked pretty good in Toronto before we traded for him too. I thought he was finally starting to settle in here but last week the worst game he's played as an Eskimo, pretty disappointing.

    All about system stats back it up .. agree with u on kenny..

    Saw kd cannon got released.. get him on the pr and acclimated to the system... he would be VERY useful for us..

    I also wonder if this is also part of a preparation to welcome someone back.

    I'm thinking this was more of a make room for Stangby move who has returned kicks before. Out will be Jackson and Stafford, in will be Stangby and ???? (Cooper, Daniels or Jones). If it were me, I would add Elliot to the outs and add Stangby, Daniels and Cooper to the lineup.
