Nice story, however I did notice Joe Pop. and Rick House number. Wow those where the days when we had great Canadian receivers. And House returned punts.
Didn't we have Joe Pop, House, Boyd and James Murohy all in the same lineup in the 80's??? Now THATS a receiving corps!!!

Hopefully Jeffcoat brings the serious DE rush opposite Westerman. Serious competition brewing there!

Guess you missed the Okpalaugo signing. He's far and away the best option opposite Westerman looking ahead to the season.

How much do we have invested in D on the big team right now?  Who can you trade for that will be an effective, affordable replacement for our injured D, and what do you do with them when our D gets healthy?

Players in the A are either development players, or backup, almost NHL level players.  Last year we had Harrison, this year we brought in Strait for that role, to add to Stuart.

Our top 6 is supposed to be Buff-Enstrom, Trouba-Morrissey, Myers-Stuart.  That is a salary (in $mil)  7.6+ 5.75, 3 + .863, 5.5+2.625 fort a total of $25.338,000 .  You have to eat injuries with entry level contract players, players you are already paying.

When half your starting 6 are injured/suspended, you are going to struggle.  Did Chevy miss out on Stone?  Maybe, he is definitely the definition of rental player, but is he that much better than Stuart? Or Strait?  Still surprised we haven't seen him up with the big club as of yet.

We still have Poolman, Stanley, Kostalek and Kichton on the Moose, looking to make the jump. 

I think you're missing the point here. The Jets have more or less shaped out the forward depth, so moving a couple of draft picks to acquire a piece to help out the blue line wouldn't be taking much of a risk. Even before losing Enstrom and more recently, Trouba, the defensive issues had been plaguing the team. Losing Myers was significant and that's why something should've been done earlier on to address that issue. How anyone can advocate a GM sitting on his hands really baffles me.

And Strait is absolute garbage. There's a reason he's not with the big club and Cheveldayoff absolutely swung and missed on that joke of a signing.

Poolman hasn't even signed a contract with the Jets. Not sure what you're expecting from Stanley (another long-term project), Kostalek, or Kichton at this point, either. I was talking about strictly acquiring a depth piece to shore up the back end in the short-term, anyway.

Both Popp and Trestman rode on the big coat tails of AC...both are over rated/haven't done anything post AC days, both in the CFL or NFL.

Classless is a bit of a stretch guy just wanted the best contract he could get
I disagree. Not saying a word or talking to the franchise about any interest in getting a contract done, a franchise that developed you into the player you are upon your return the CFL, is totally disrespectful and totally classless.

Hey, I have absolutely no problem getting the best deal you can, all the power to you, but don't take your gong show to other CFL cities and turn your back on us...that's no class and there's no other way to describe such a punk move.

That isn't at all what I said. Huh

Obviously, the rest of your post is just more Aardsy Conjecture, so there's no point in addressing it.

The blue line depth has been an issue for a while now - not just this season. Losing Myers only exacerbated that. Adding a depth piece via trade could've helped lessen load on the rest of the defense, especially when you consider the minutes being logged by the two top pairings. Case in point: the Flames gave up next to nothing for Stone (to a division rival, no less), who adds immediate depth to their back end.

When you consider how defensively poor the team has been (I'm not taking away from the forwards' issues there, to be clear), it makes little to no sense for a GM to sit on his hands. And the defensive depth within the organization leaves something to be desired not only now, but looking ahead.

How much do we have invested in D on the big team right now?  Who can you trade for that will be an effective, affordable replacement for our injured D, and what do you do with them when our D gets healthy?
