Just a wee bit of motivation for Mr. Elimimian... #CFL
"Lions GM Ed Hervey on Solomon Elimimian: ?we know when a players? time is up?"


I guess Wally taught him well?

But is it really good to give a player, any player, even one past what you believe is his "Best Before" date, any kind of bulletin board material?

was good too as well to see Kongbo so involved as best he could..he was running through the plays right behind the line in drills..also was practicing moves and generally a ball of energy..you can tell he wants to get out there in a bad way

A "bad way" for the other team... we hope...

Sounds like this draft class might be even better than hoped for.  I guess it drops to Dejarlais and Griffiths to start getting comments, Kongbo, Oliviera, Eli getting lots of mentions...

I don't know if many think he's just a runner. The question is how quickly is he learning to read CFL defenses. There is more film on him now and I suspect there will be more opposition effort to restrict him escaping contain. That's almost an inevitable with new QB's in the CFL.

He'll never be just a pocket passer but I want to see him take another step forward in that part of a QB role when needed.

Expectations are high with his talent displayed in 2018. He reminds me a bit of Reilly in his early years.

Strev. needs to develop more patience and trust in his receivers, the O-line and the called play, he's too quick to "exit, stage left" the first opportunity presented.  If he can settle down a little more this year and learn to work the pocket his season will be a success.

i'd be shocked if the DT Richardson doesn't make the squad in some capacity...same with not having ELI on the 46 at the very least..I could see jake as well replaced by Griffiths and or Forde...and thats before Kongbo even steps foot on the field.

Sure. We may start the season with the veterans while the rookies are on the 2 man DR for example. Initially it's less of a risk to continuity and gives rookies a bit more time to learn nuances of the  CFL.

OTOH there might be some SMS considerations involved in final roster moves.

I don't put too much stock in power rankings at any time in the season (mainly due to the season where the Bombers were consistently at or near the top of the power rankings during the Pierce/Jyles year, but consistently managed to lose most games by a field goal or less), but they are fun to read.

I find the comment "Welcome to the bottom third of the list, also known as the East Division" both humorous and sad at the same time, because one of those three teams will make the playoffs, quite possibly with a worse record than the last place team in the West.  I know it's not going to change, but it should.

The question for me this season is will it all be a pileup at the top and the bottom, or will we legitimately have stratification this year (i.e. two top teams, five middle of the pack teams, and two basement dwellers). 

Too many major changes in the off season to make that call right now.  Calgary will likely be on a bit of a decline, though I don't suspect that much as long as Huff and Dickenson are running the show they somehow always manage to find the next guy.  Edmonton will be worse off, BC might be better off, Saskatchewan has made a lot of changes, but their structure remains fundamentally similar to the Jones mentality of beat them with defense.  Bombers have the makings of one of the potentially best teams we have fielded in quite some time, it's just a matter of whether or not that team is good enough to be the champ.

Hamilton will be #1 in the East most likely, and the rest is a who knows.  With all the player and coaching changes in Ottawa, they could very well be the worst team in the East, but I think the Als and Argos will fight them for that title.

The thing about Huff. is he hasn't fully embraced F.A. and still has the view that he can participate minimally, I'm not sure that is possible anymore.  Times have changed, 85% of CFL players are now on contracts of 2 years or less and he's losing almost half his club to F.A. every year.  He's still a great recruiter and builder but the game is passing him by.

from my eye...Nichols looked very mobile, more agile and had more zip on his ball, and Streveler throws a nice ball and a good deep ball too (for those who think he is a runner only)

Sources have informed me that the #Alouettes are signing All-Star defensive back Ciante Evans.

The 26-year-old spent the last four seasons in Calgary. Signed in the AAF this offseason. Massive addition.
