I have coached receivers and DBS, and played both at the CIS level.  As a coach I have networked with a few DBS and Receivers.  Sharing ideas and asking questions etc.  Plus having coached since 1971, many other. Coaches.

It's been bugging me how and why a receiver would loaf off the line of scrimmage, employ zero strategic moves to manipulate a DB and still be a starter.  So as, a coach I am watching some of our CDN stars,  last yrs,  Bowman, this year's Matthews and the clown in BC.Carter.

I asked one of my CFL hall of fame receiver friends and. He just shook his head. No answer.

Did anyone watch the play where Matthews tried to catch a low pass and allegedly hurt his finger?  Or the play last game in BC where Carter was out muscled for the ball, after loafing off the line and turning, and making the laziest attempt possible for the ball. I think it was intercepted.

I am thinking carter's days are numbered, as are Matthews.  Now maybe. It's a tall receivers technique to loaf around the field.  Certainly not us littler guys.  Anyone else notice a lack of burst by Matthews?

Absolutely and was told it's cause he is tall and he just looks slow...maybe he is nursing a hamstring or leg injury - we just don't know.  At any rate maybe this will light a fire under him and when he does play it will be full of intensity...If I am Lawler right now I am bursting with excitement cause if he can go off this game he won't be on the sidelines going forward.

Receivers don't rotate. The starters will play every snap if someone isn't subbed for a run blocker. The only way you'll see Petermann in is if someone needs a breather, is injured or if someone is having a bad game.
Not at all true, how do you think PEterman got gametime last year  Roll Eyes

No, I'm defining reach.

Well, then you defined it as, "reach itself does not make money."

No one said it does. It is an action taken that could potentially result in more revenue; i.e. an investment.

our offence last game wasn't a ball control let's spread the ball around type of thing...just not how it was planned or how it unfolded during the game. We went 2 and out lots in the 2nd half so there wasn't many catches for a lot of receivers...  Almost seems like one will get hot based on coverage and that is the guy that will have the big game...was odd that Woli got nothing then strevler came in and went for him right away...roommate connection I guess.

I think if he quickly looks at the ref and says, "Whoops, sorry about that," then nothing happens.

The contact was minimal for sure, but it was a move of disrespect as he nudged the official.

Banks claims the ref. stepped on his foot.

Yes, no or maybe. At the moment we have 2 receivers injured and aren't really sure to what extent.

Since we don't know what the injury to Nelson is ( 6 game IR ) he may be gone for considerable time. He may not be available until after game 11 or longer.

Initially I thought Bailey would be next up but obviously that didn't happen. I'm not sure who would be the injured player he would then replace? Is he 3rd in line behind Matthews and then Lawler for that particular role?

Walker and Bailey are rookies on ELC's. Nelson is a essentially on an ELC as well so none of these players is costing a lot to keep around.

I suppose we have to see how each does with their opportunities. Walker got high praise in TC as a route runner with speed. Depending on game situations we may see him get some playing time on offense.

A bigger question for me is why is Petermann not getting any meaningful game reps?

Petermann simply has to wait for Demski or Woli. to go down to get his shot, it'll happen sooner or later.  When they return he'll go right back to being a backup and probably leave in the off-season to seek a better opportunity out East, leaving the Natl. receiving corps thread bare once again.  No chance they play or start him in lieu of an American receiver other than as an in game replacement.

Looks like excellent weather for the game. Should be around 25 for kick off.
