Quote from: Blue In BC on July 04, 2022, 01:22:19 PMIf Grant is the DI then he won't see many reps on offence because an import will have to come off for anytime he's on the field.McCrae could be used more on offence as a non DI as was suggested.
Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on July 04, 2022, 01:51:34 PMYea, it depends what they want to do. One of them almost certainly will be a starter. If they are utilizing McCrae as the Demski replacement then he'll start. If they are using McCrae as a returner and planning to use Grant more in rotation with O'Leary-Orange then that's the other way to go.

Quote from: the paw on July 04, 2022, 03:13:58 PMI looked up McCrae's draft profile on a couple of sites. Both of them note that while he has decent hands, he got relatively little work as a receiver out of the backfield, and wasn't really used in the slot position (unlike his RB teammate). He had something like 7 drops against 44 career receptions, most of which were as a check down rather than as a route runner. It's entirely speculation on my part, but based on that report, I think it is less likely they will be bringing in McCrae to fill Demski's spot. I think they are going to mostly use O-Leary-Orange in that spot, but bring in Grant from time to time to stretch the field, run a sweep, etc. I think McCrae will be used to take some of the load off Grant on returns, and I think they are going to give him a look to see how effective he can run in the A and B gaps. He was a little undersized for an NCAA back, but still had a career ypc of 6.5. I think they are using this opportunity while Brandon Alexander is out to see what they have in McCrae, and define their ratio options more completely.
Quote from: The Zipp on July 04, 2022, 02:07:58 PMthat is what I am thinking...maybe he will get the odd jet sweep but I think GM will be the returner and Grant will get more offensive snaps with OL. Or maybe the offense will look way different and catch TO off guard.
Quote from: blue_gold_84 on July 04, 2022, 03:47:04 PMSo, the Argos are starting an injured Harris in the hopes they can stick it to the Bombers because of what happened during free agency?Didn't know the Boatmen were so petty.
Quote from: Blue In BC on July 04, 2022, 03:51:05 PMThey don't have many choices. One Canadian RB and one FB were on their 1 game IR last week. Another Canadian RB with 3 carries and 10 yards. Import RB Leake has no CFL carries.
