    Who's catching the onside kick though? Maybe MOD can swap jerseys for a play.

    Re: What Does This Team Need? Stay or GO?

    You can make one of the corner spots a Canadian spot with Oneyka if he is deemed good enough to start but the problem is you need an adequate back up behind him. When the Esks had Colquhoun who was good enough to start, he couldn't stay healthy so every time we went down, they were having to juggle their ratio. They tried Hoover as a fill in and he's not good enough to start at corner and then when they got Oneyka, he needed development time. Last season he showed flashes but I didn't think he was ready for full time. So this season with them moving on from Colquhoun, if Oneyka is ready for prime time, who's his back up? You have to have a back up who's not going to be a significant drop off. I know they brought in Gabriel who I assume will play safety because that is what he did for the Argos. I felt they needed to upgrade the safety spot as Hoover and Beaulieu were a mixed bag for me last year.
    Blindly accept whatever they do and if it doesn't work out, I guess there's always next year.

    Re: What Does This Team Need? Stay or GO?

    My secondary looks like:

    CB- Mincy/Covington
    DB-Washington/Hightower
    S- Gabriel

    A Lot can change. I expect some serious competition for many positions on both sides of the ball....

    they are front and center with the bashing. Don't get me wrong I'm not enamored with Brock - I'm more on the fence about him but I can see some good is what he's doing.. those Hevery BFFS refuse to.



    YOU are the only one bringing up Hervey over and over.
    I don't think Brock has done well at all, to the point it seems pointless to post on this site with you.

    BTW I really couldn't care less about Ed, so how do you insult me now?
    PLEASE do not feed the trolls!

    If Stefan Charles and or Evan Machibroda turn out, then I think you can run with 3 Canadians on defence. Onyeka could start on the corner and if he needs to replace, you could run with 2 Canadians on the defensive line at all times between Boateng, Betts, Charles and Machibroda.

    Classy move by Arjen. It is too bad that he could have been a more regular participant on the active roster. In any event, I wish him all the best moving forward,

    One thing I've really started to believe over the past few seasons is that if you have a "ratio breaker", that player needs to be able to stay relatively healthy or it puts your team at a huge disadvantage.

    Colquhoun is a great player but he's hurt so often that we ended up having guys like Hoover playing way above their heads for much of the season. The same can be said for when we went Canadian at linebacker and Greenwood got hurt followed up by Konar. We went from Greenwood, to Konar, to Mulumba playing most of the season.

    Those ratio breakers can really open up a lot of possibilities for the team but if they can't stay on the field, it means the team is constantly putting out players that aren't ready to start in order to maintain the ratio balance.

    I'm excited about our potential on the defensive line simply because we have three legit players in Boateng, Charles, and Betts.

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw the release announcement. He was solid for us back in 2017.

    Ladler was great... all over the field making tackles . he'd fly from the other side of the field to do so.

    I remember was it this past season or last? we brought him back to churn the kickoff siren for us...

    Lets kick JSK salary away for this guy man... if he were to come back he'd almost be a CFL staple for the most part as I think his NFL outlook might be done sadly

    It s a tough call to make without knowing the contract. There could have been all sorts of bonuses coming up. Perhaps he was making noise about looking elsewhere.
    There are better things in the world than beer but beer sort of compensates for not getting them.

    Re: What Does This Team Need? Stay or GO?

    Ladler was our defensive MVP the year that he signed in the NFL. He is an absolute stud and a difference maker on defence. If he has any desire to return to the CFL, BS should already be on the phone getting him signed. We can make cuts after camp to get to the salary cap. With the news that Santos-knox ready for the start of camp and possibly starting the season on the IR.....this would be even more of a necessity. Ladler would look great in the Green and Gold.

    Makes sense. Brock only likes to give out contracts to injured guys.
    Blindly accept whatever they do and if it doesn't work out, I guess there's always next year.

    Dude, really?

    At this point, the Esks could win back-to-back Grey Cups and you'd find a way to take an unwarranted shot at Brock.

    Best wishes to Gable in retirement.

    If Brock had signed him you would have criticized him for signing an old RB to a HUGE deal, even though we wouldn't have a clue how much his contract was for but now that it looks like he's retiring you are taking a shot at Brock for not signing him LOL

    Never change Q, its actually funny to me at this point.
    Blindly criticize every move eventough I have about 1/4 of the information

    Best SAM linebacker we have had since Steven Marsh. Man, Marsh had such a long and storied career ahead of him before the career ender...

    - - - Updated - - -

    Kudos to CJ on a pretty impressive career. Too bad he never got the Grey Cup ring but still a very solid career. He definitely looked to me like he was wearing down the past few years so not entirely shocked no one signed him. Very solid player.

    Interesting signing. Agreed he was a part of the OL playing better in BC. I thought we were set with American OL. With Rodgers, Kelly, Draheim, Lofton. Does he play guard or tackle? Is he just depth signing in case of injury. I would imagine we only starting international’s on the OL...

    He is a tackle. Played RT last season but saw time in 2017 at LT with the Stamps. Would not be at all shocked to see Renfrow at RT on opening night...
