Re: Final wrap on free agency: Offence and Defence

Just to clarify, we did not lose Loucheiz Purifoy this off-season. In fact, he's been working out at the Surrey facility with strength and conditioning coach Boyko. I think some other Lionbackers were under this impression too, as it was speculated in the early part of last season that this would b...

Re: Final wrap on free agency: Offence and Defence

This off-season has exceeded expectations in terms of free agency. When Wally signed Burnham, one would have expected it to end there on offence but he surprised hugely and signed Chris Williams. There is no doubt that Williams was highly influenced by the fact that Jonathan Jennings would be his qu...

Re: Chris Williams now a Leo

I'm just hoping Khari Jones devise an offence that takes advantage of our receivers' skills I believe our offence has the most talent in the CFL for 2017. The offensive line is all back and if we wanted to, we could move Steward to his natural position at left tackle, move Olifoye back to right tac...

Chris Williams now a Leo

This is an excellent signing. Williams gives us speed as a receiver to compliment Manny and Burnham but as a returner we can now spell off Rainey more and use Rainey on offence for more touches,

Re: Lions and RP21 part ways

He did this reduced salary concept to Geroy Simon, Korey Banks, and Paris Jackson for example. The thing that came to a head with Banks was that he and Wally redid the deal almost on an annual basis with Banks getting most of his money up front. Buono knew Banks was a lock to make the team so was O...

Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

This signing is massive! Wow, O-line completely intact from last year (and Vaillancourt entering his sophomore season), Jeremiah back, JJ can throw to Burnham, Manny, Nick Moore, with Rainey a backfield or slotback threat. Offense should be a treat to watch this year. Weapons Of Mass Destruction! A...

Re: Lions and RP21 part ways

Ryan Phillips, along with Korey Banks, Carl Kidd, and Dante Marsh have been my favorite all time favorite Leo defenders so its with sadness that I say goodbye to Ryan Phillips and thank him for all his contributions as a Leo. Phillips had an outstanding rookie season as a Leo. When we moved Phillips...

Re: Starting Lineup so far

cfl.ca writes that two Leos could benefit from new situations this season. Jabar Westerman DT | BC Jabar Westerman (left) racked up a career-high five sacks for the Lions last season (Jimmy Jeong/CFL.ca) While Jamaal became an instant CFL star at age 30, his younger brother, Jabar, took a different ...

Re: Starting Lineup so far

We'd be insane not to sign Steward.

Re: Upcoming Free Agent Market

I was hoping that Bo would take over the departed Bighill's LB spot. I guess now it will stay a Import spot. Bo and Hunter Steward were my two priority re-signings for the Lions. I just hope that Wally and Dan Dorazio appreciate Hunter's talents, especially at LT, and are willing to pay the $ to si...

Re: Milanovich resigns

Milanovich led the Argos to victory in the 100th Grey Cup in his first season as head coach, and was named CFL Coach of the Year that season, but finishes his career in Toronto with an overall record of 43-47 with the Double Blue. Scott Milanovich had challenges put in front of him in Toronto but ov...

Re: Durant Traded to Montreal.

For some fans, I believe their dislike of Chris Jones is impacting their viewpoint a little too much. Darian Durrant has often been injured during the past few seasons. He is still good enough to be a bona fide starter in the CFL, no question and Montreal got him in the trade while not giving up ver...

Re: Upcoming Free Agent Market

While its a good thing to be positive or hopeful, I believe T.J. Lee will have a tougher time coming back from his Achilles injury. Sol E. was not ready to begin this season and it will be even tougher for Lee to do the same, especially playing defensive halfback. I am more hopeful for Clarke to ret...

Re: Lions biggest mistakes in 2016....

During the 3rd Down Radio year-end show LU mentioned the Lions weren't thrilled with Burnham's production in the 2 playoffs games (predictable routes perhaps?). Three years ago Wally let Nick Moore get away when he was 3rd in the league in receiving and roughly the same age as Burnham. It's going t...

Re: Solomon is back! Merry Christmas

I too have wondered if Lokombo can play nickleback if Purifoy does not return, or could Lokombo play free safety? I think that the only way to re-sign Lokombo is to pay him starter's $ and have him start somewhere on D. So now with Solly signed I am hoping that Bighill makes it in the NFL and then ...
