O'Shea seems to agree, he said Coombs is very similar to Demski and would only be brought in as his backup, so he sees no point.

Exactly. We cut Simonise cuz we couldn't keep 4 Canadian recs. We would just be messing up Petermanns development if we pushed him down to 4th, aka little to no playing time

Agreed if we cut RS then why would we go for AC?  It just doesn't add up.

It doesn?t and we won?t go after him. If he wasn?t a local player, this wouldn?t have even come up.

We should have played Petermann more.. liked to see him bulldoze people over.  Demski better show up more in games or he should be gone imo.

IMO the potential is there for injury insurance...We have Demski and Woli who will start, we have Petermann to back-up IF Demski and Wloi or Petermann get knicked we would need another CDN receiver or we would be required to adjust the ratio.

If the cost was suitable and we could fit him on the roster somewhere (IE as an injury replacement potentailly offsetting his SMS), it could be a very smart insurance move.

Because Simonise lacks the focus to translate his great physical potential into actual production.  He may turn into a player as he matures, but that?s a couple of years out, after his first contract plays out.

Coombs has durability concerns, but if he dresses, he can be productive.  If the price is right, we can roster 4 Cdn receivers, we did it all last year.

The story seems to be based on Walters presser yesterday. He was specifically asked about Coombs and he just said that he was on a list of players they could look at. He didn't say they were specifically looking a Coombs.

My take... we don't need him. He's an injury problem. Only look at him if he's still available if Demski gets injured. I expect a couple of other teams might be looking for NI help right away tho, so I don't see it happening.

Sounds like the perfect fit to put in with DC... should be an interesting season for Jackson and Howell... Nik Lewis might be the deciding factor in keeping them under control...

I agree. I think that the Bomber's interest in Coombs has been overstated by many. I imagine that Walters may make a lowball offer just to see, but there is little significant interest. The guy is injured all the time.
