Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

cfl.ca considers a question for every CFL team following Week 1. For our Leos, the topic and question was the Jovan Olifioye trade. June 27, 2017 The Weekly Say: A question for every team in Week 1 CFL.ca Staff Here are nine pressing questions for Week 2: 1. Could the Lions regret trading Jovan Olaf...

Re: Lions cuts

Saskatchewan has signed former B.C. linebacker Cam Ontko to the practice roster. He was beaten out here by Tony Burnett and Micah Awe. I wish him well. Happy to see Ontco getting another opportunity to play. Hope it works out well for him. If he can get on the game roster, he certainly can help out...

B.C.

The Lions really need to stretch the field horizontally and vertically. They need more playma...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

It's funny. I am an advocate of continuous competition for starting positions and have been somewhat frustrated during the Wally era at how the depth chart seemed to be etched in stone over the off season and little changed following training camp and the pre-season. So Wally, sensing perhaps a lit...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

I now understand the critical analysis regarding our net punt return average. I took the stat from cfl.ca. It doesn't reflect what happened in the game in terms of our downfield coverage. However, our kick return coverage was definitely lacking, just from the two Edmonton big returns I remember duri...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

Good read, as always, Blitz. And it seems to me that the CFL has oftentimes been ahead of the NFL in its adaptations. Good examples of predictability and non-predictability. I am sure Khari and Mark can do it. But it is not the team's philosophy to do it that way. We are very old school. We have se...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

You got the wrong guy, Hambone. I've made no comments on punt returns. I will make one now. Chris Rainey might be the best, most exciting punt returner I have ever seen. My apologies WCJ. It was Blitz. Tough to keep track of who posted what when reading these long posts and frequent long quoted rep...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

I like those quotes, Blitz. Points well made. The most pleasant surprise I could have this season is if Wally made the big adaptation. Modern day football. Detailed game planning, fresh, against each opponent's tendencies. Self scouting in detail. Deception. I am sure Mark and Khari can do it. Turn...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

Another thing, Blitz. We can credit the Esks for detailed game planning. But ... they spilled the beans after. No point telling the enemy you have read their mail. Keep the secret, the Ultra Secret. No matter though. Wally and our staff won't believe it. They will attribute it to execution, a blown...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

About U.S. politics, someone said Trump was playing checkers and Comey was playing chess. Same thing with our coaching philosophy. The Eskimo staff saw a tendency/vulnerability in our secondary. But we did not know it ourselves. We did not scout ourselves. We did not prep our corner and DB. We were...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

Its interesting to have a really good close look at why our Leos continue with the same patterns. Last seaon our defense gave up a ton of big tplays. Edmonton had been talking about setting up the long pass play to Zykstra all week prior to the game and during the game. It was based on certain of ou...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

In doing some reading on line, there are some who think we should rush Waters back. I didn't think Long had a bad game for his first outing. He hit 4/5 field goals with his miss hitting the goal post. He had one convert blocked. He averaged over 48 yards per punt. He was only a field goal kicker in ...

Re: Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

Patterns continue unless correction actions are made Dano T. Here is an interesting comment in Lowell Ullrich's column today Reilly said the Eskimos were waiting for the right moment to torch Thompson. “That was a play that had a great opportunity to be successful if they gave us the right coverage,...

Leos/Eskimos Post Game Thoughts

In reflecting on our Leos season opener loss at home to the Eskimos, with a little over 19,000 in attendance, both the loss and the way our Leos played this game, is not going to put more bums in the seats for our next home contest. Our Leos lost a game they deserved to lose. With some time to sleep...
