It will be interesting to see how Coombs does in Hamilton with an opportunity to take a more active role. The same applies in the comparison we see with Augustine in any relief role for A. Harris.

I was not in favor of bringing Coombs to Winnipeg earlier. We didn't need him and SMS might have been another issue.

With the injury to Oliveria that may have changed the picture of need.

So much is unknown. We didn't get to see anything from Oliveria due to such an early season injury. Augustine was on the AR for the last game but not used yet.

Coombs may not be successful. Augustine or Oliveria could have long CFL careers.

By the end of 2019 we might have a better grasp on Coombs and Augustine if they get playing time.

Hindsight is always perfect when you see how things work out. lol

I would like to see O'Shea give Augustine a few series per game not only for his own reward but also to spell Harris off and reduce his workload. Harris got nearly beat to death finishing out the Ottawa game and nobody seemed to notice.  A few teams make use of two RB's in game situations to good purpose, Calgary and Sask. come first to mind and they carry two Imports on the game-day roster which is a bit more difficult to accommodate, so it can be done.  Augustine is on the sidelines, why not make use of his contribution instead of pretending he's not there?

During the Montreal game last week, Coombs was looking like the only bright spot on HAM, IMO.

I will be cheering for him as a local kid.

If there was ever a game where back ups might get more time to play, this could be it. So getting Augustine more game reps could be something we see tomorrow.

Streveler might see lots of play in the 2nd half. etc etc.

during the game I was thinking the same thing but wrote it off as something we just don't do... I was happy to see O'Shea go back to Demski the few times he did earlier in the game to give the offense a different look and help Harris carry the workload...  I wasn't thinking about Augustine at the time, but that makes good sense, especially given the injury situation... maybe he'll get an opportunity this week...

BC Lions sign Ryan Lankford.

With Rutley performing fairly well on returns, I'm guessing they signed him as a receiver?  Don't know what he'll bring to the table in that regard vs. what they already have.

They've been starting 8+ Canadians a lot this year. Probably like him as a burner and to compliment Rutley on returns. Also could be they wanna use Rutley more on offense as White has been meh

Maybe he's a Plan B if they drop both games to Saskatchewan (and effectively end their season) so that they can do some salary dumps (i.e. Carter, though I don't know that he's all that expensive, he's more expensive than Lankford).

Lankford might actually get to do some P/K kicking for the Lions. That's not been an area of strength for them. If they get rid of Castillo ( or PR him ) they'd also get to add another DI. For that matter he might be better than Bartel as a P.

Of.course its Carter   Grin

I think it's just they realized starting 3 Canadian receivers isn't a smart move. Plus all teams should try to improve. Lankford was a fine return man this year and has speed. Would I want him back? No. But with speedy players you just never know

Hervey bringing in a guy who brings his lunch pail with him to work every day. Sending a message to a team that is devoid of work ethic right now.

Lankford isn't what BC needs. They need new OL.
