Re: Popp and Trestman in Toronto ?

I thought Popp's tenure in the league had run its course but a package deal with Trestman might give the Argos the experience and credibility that they desperately need. Then Copeland needs to get out of football operations and leave the team in the hands of people who know what they're doing. The A...

Re: Final wrap on free agency: Offence and Defence

Thanks for the feedback fellas. No doubt the depth chart features more than a few candidates who can fill Adam's spot. They were really high on Dyshawn Davis last year. Cameron Ontko is another guy to keep in mind. They also re-signed Gionni Paul who was added to the practice roster in September. A...

Re: Final wrap on free agency: Offence and Defence

Thanks, Matt. No doubt the Lions are loaded on offence like never before. It remains to be seen what they have on defence and how the new players fit into the lineup. Tony Burnett, in particular, is a wild card. He didn't lose out to established veteran Bighill for a linebacker spot in 2014; he lost...

Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

Mike Beamish has written a nice feature on one of the latest defensive-line signees, Marquis Jackson. He is supposedly the identical twin of star NFL DT Malik Jackson but there's a big size discrepancy. Marquis is listed at 6-4, 255 pounds by the Lions but was listed at 280 pounds when he tried out ...

Re: 2017 schedule

One quirk I noticed in the schedule is that both byes come relatively close together in the second half of the season, in Weeks 11 and 15. So the Lions play 10 games, get a week off, play three games, get another week off and then finish with five games, three of them at home and two in Winnipeg in ...

Re: Chris Williams now a Leo

Chris Rainey and Chris Williams play different positions. Rainey is a returner and backup running back. He had 138 returns of all kinds last year, 36 rushes and 30 receptions. Williams is a wide receiver who has had three straight 1,200-yard seasons despite missing four games in 2016 and two games i...

Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

According to Mike Beamish , there were more DL signed including 6'0 287 LBs Luther Maddy , who looks like a fairly stout DT. http://www.calgaryherald.com/sports/cfl/mike+beamish+lions+will+wade+cautiously+into+free+agent+pool/12907075/story.html As discussed earlier in this thread, Maddy is an inte...

Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

With Yell, Lee, Clarke, Moore and Williams all coming off season-ending injuries, the success of the Lions' free-agent signings will be judged on how well those players bounce back. If they all return to form, the Lions will have scored big. If they don't, the Lions will have gambled and lost big.

Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

It sounds like the Chris Williams signing hinges on his health, with Wally wanting insurance in case he is not ready to go at the start of the season. Mike Beamish ‏@sixbeamers #BCLions and WR Chris Williams have agreed on a contract number. It's how bonuses and games played break down that have to ...

Re: Free Agent Market and Free Agent Camps

This has been rumoured for a few days, and would complete the circle for Tony Burnett, who was pencilled in as Lions' nickelback in 2014 until he lost the job to Josh Johnson in rookie camp and never got it back. He eventually landed in Winnipeg for the past two seasons. NEWS 1130 Sports ‏@NEWS1130...
