Quote from: Blue In BC on July 03, 2022, 08:54:53 PMAny way to find out with import is not the DI? That makes a difference whether McCrae for example can alternate at RB or for O-Leary-Orange for example without requiring an import receiver to come out.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on July 03, 2022, 07:23:15 PMO'Shea may have dropped a clue yesterday when he said QB protection is first and foremost over running and pass receiving for the RB's, because the CFL is primarily a passing league. My guess is Brady is more capable of blocking than Johnny due to his bulk, but it could be that he also reads his blocking assignments better. A few weeks ago O'Shea commented that A.H. always scored 100% with his blocking reads, so they have a very high standard to live up to.
Quote from: LXTSN on July 03, 2022, 09:14:01 PMI agree that pass blocking is important, but to me it's definaly not the most important thing. If it was, we would just play a FB all the time. I don't feel that BO is much better at pass blocking then Augustine, but I do think Augustine is a much better ball carrier. That being said, I know MOS sees every practice so he obviously sees something I don't lolJust want JA to get his chance sooner rather than later, but I know it will happen eventually!
Quote from: the paw on July 03, 2022, 10:33:16 PMLogically, McRae will be undesignated. That allows him to get a good long look at RB if they want, and he can still split return duties with Grant. I think we will see more of Grant at receiver, but not full time. I think O?Leary-Orange is going to get more time at receiver.If O?Leary shows well, that gives another dimension. I think Schoen and Bailey both have the speed to run those sweeps that they use Demski for, so it?s not like they are dependent on Grant to run those.Honestly, I think this is a wake up call for Oliveira and Augustine. The team would prefer to stay CDN at RB, but 3.0 ypc is not getting it done.
Quote from: The Zipp on July 04, 2022, 01:07:23 AMI agree it is an early reminder to both RB's that nothing is guaranteed and while RB performance goes with the oline the 3 ypc isn't going to get it done on any team but especially the Bombers. Perhaps in watching the film there were some things discovered regarding the reads and hitting the holes / not hesitating.
Quote from: Pigskin on July 03, 2022, 10:07:16 PMWell I am here in Toronto for the game tomorrow. Been to 3 out of the last 4 Blue Jays games and there is not much interest in the Argos. Most of the people we talked to didn't even know there was a game this week. Another group thought it was a stupid time and had decided not to attend.
Quote from: GOLDMEMBER on July 04, 2022, 03:29:53 AM a stupid time? What does that mean? More like stupid sports fans!
Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on July 03, 2022, 05:08:34 PMInteresting. It would appear that Houston has not only played his way onto the roster but also the boundary corner. Rose is playing with Taylor over on the field side which we have never seen before.
Quote from: The Zipp on July 03, 2022, 07:06:12 PMAnd more from CFL stats: Toronto comes into this game having won 9 of their last 10 home games. That stretch will go up against Winnipeg's current road form of wins in 5 of their last 7 away games overall. Winnipeg last won in Toronto in 2018.
