Re: Johnny Manziel Offered 2 Year Contract

I'm not hoping for him to fail. He has done enough of that on his own. Surprised by the high praise of Jones. We will see how it goes. Doug Flutie like talent? Hard to believe. Sceptical so far. He had escapability and creativity, as seen in college. Three big questions for this fan. 1. Can he behav...

Re: Lions name Jarious Jackson offensive coordinator and QB coach

Riders Fans ranked OC's in CFL and no surprise Lions ranked #8 LOL.However they said its cause Jarious is unproven...it was a toss up between Tresrman and Dickenson for #1 Not sure how you can name top OCs and not have Lapo in the mix. What he's been able to do in Winnipeg is nothing short of remar...

Re: 2018 World Juniors

Wow. Just Wow. Such intensity. Great team play. Size. Speed. Talent. I won't rip the Swedish kid too much. They are kids. They pore everything into it. Bad move though. Not condoned. He has tenacity. But one has to learn to acknowledge some defeats, not necessarily accept them. He could have a good ...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

I am thinking confidence is part of the picture, along with how his now former Ti-Cat colleagues stopped tuning into him. Collaros is a mirror image of Kent Austin in many ways, super competitive and unable manage his tendency to beak off and point fingers. Just like Austin driving away Steinhauer ...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

Sign and retire, all in a day. They do it. They have their reasons. In Glenn's situation, Ottawa and Toronto did acquire his rights. In some cases, he was acquired more than once by teams. LOL Obviously it offends some fans. This fan would not be offended by it. If there was a poll (or vote) I would...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

If Edmonton needs a QB, due to injury, et cetera, he would be a possible pickup. And it is not true that he would be "mocking his own career." It would be a job, for good pay. He has plenty of pride. But most guys also need paydays. I have no issues with him signing to play but don't really see Edm...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

At one time, some people thought he was the next Doug Flutie. Not this fan, but he has talent. It seems that under Kent Austin all of his confidence just drained away. I expect he will make a good recovery under Chris Jones. Jones, like Don Matthews, has a way of building confidence in players. I a...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

I wish Edmonton would bring Glenn in as backup. They are the only CFL team he has not played for. In a story before the 2017 season began, Glenn joked that he would sign a 1 day contract with Edmonton before he retired. https://www.cfl.ca/2017/03/29/kevin-glenn-enjoyed-nomadic-lifestyle/ I would li...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

I wish Edmonton would bring Glenn in as backup. They are the only CFL team he has not played for. Not totally true. It's the only team he hasn't been property of if one wants to exclude the Ottawa Renegades who joined the CFL after Glenn.. He's played for 6 and hasn't even as much as practiced for ...

Re: Football Operations: GM Ed Hervey, HC Wally Buono and the Coaching Staff

Good for Khari. I think he knows his stuff, and he has paid his dues. Not much he could do here as OC to get the OL pass blocking better -- not his job per se. The tendency to use the same old game plans (as with all Lions' coordinators) may have come from higher up. --> Focus on execution, not so m...

No Bob, that would be Gerald Roper and Ian Sinclair (W.E. Travel), not Rick Klassen. TSN Radio's Donnie Taylor had a nice tribute to Rick today. Talked about how big the Lions were here in the 80s and the players were like rock stars. Rick was always a personable guy to Don and a great, thoughtful ...

Excellent post, CONNECTICUT YANKEE.
