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 see...

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 was wondering what game you were watching with those punt return numbers come from WCJ because I didn't recall coverage being bad. I gather they came from CFL.ca where they don't make sense. EE's returner was credited with 3 returns for 24 yds and an 8 yd average. Game log shows first return was ...

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: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

] This is where Wally has to step up and make a decision. Purifoy is playing his first game at safety after taking no reps there to my knowledge in training camp and preseason. Thompson is playing his first regular season game at corner after being moved there late in camp. Wally has to decide whet...

Re: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

Luke and Menard at one DL spot rotation. INT at corner. Or a NAT at Safety. We played like a poor pregame or half time speech. Muddle headed. Even playing brain dead football, the win was there to be had. JJ10 almost stole it back. 60 yard throw running to his left. Shocking. And we pi**ed it all aw...

Re: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

Horrible loss.

Do we look well coached?

OL issues

ST issues

Mental preparedness issues

Defensive issues

Lineup issues

On the coaches.

Re: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

Intrigue in the palace, Wally's royal court. When this fan was a little closer to the action, one recalls Benny and Jacques evaluating their chances at succession to the top job. JC clearly thought Benny had the inside track. Mark W might have been perceived as a threat at the top by Benny. Who kno...

Re: Eskimos vs. Lions June 24, 2017

Did anyone catch Benny on TSN1040 yesterday? Heart (worn on sleeve) still firmly entrenched in BC. Said he still dearly loves his guys like Solly and Manny but there are some he doesn't have the time of day for, which I thought was an odd bit of info to volunteer. When pressed, he said something ab...

Re: CFL Games of Week 1

Good for Jacques. Close game. Both QBs had decent numbers. Glenn had almost 300 yards. Durant had 2 TD passes. Not All Star material, but they top the depth charts on their teams. Missed FG at the end. Yes, Crapigna crapped the bed. Too bad for Chris Jones. :wink: I don't hate him. In fact I kind of...
