Re: Pending Lions free agents

I may be in the minority but I think it was a mistake to let Roh walk. I am not saying Odell Willis isn't an upgrade for this year but realistically, how much does Willis have in the tank? I don't believe Roh has reached his ceiling as a pass rusher. During his time here, he was misused (playing so...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Here's what can be categorized as the never ending question; what's Boyko's status? Am I right in assuming he has to make an active roster if he wants to continue in the NFL? Or perhaps more accurately, he has exhausted his options in regards to being on practice rosters? Yes, Boyke is under contra...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Really like the addition of Cummings. Is there even a spot now for Brooks with three recently acquired internationals (Knapton, Willis and Cummings) destined to start? Lions need to start seven nationals somewhere and a Menard/Luke /Forde rotation for at least one spot on the DL is a natural. I see...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Done deal now. They signed Watson today. He likely will be the Canadian to start in the receiving corps, while the guy they drafted last year will have to wait another year and be a backup. What is that now 4 or 5 ex Eskimos signed in free agency. I like it. Great size. Pretty good passport. A well...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Sorry to see Fenner leave the Lions Den. Thought he had a very good year last year. Apparently the Bombers offered $60,000 more than the Lions. But how are the Bombers going to accomodate both Fenner and Leggett as starters in the linebacking corps? I can't see either of them sitting on the bench w...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Things are picking up with the signing of National O-lineman Christopher Greaves from Montreal. There was very little in the way of available Nationals amongst the Offensive linemen so getting at least one to help with the potential departure of 3 Canadians will help mitigate the blow to the ratio....

Re: Pending Lions free agents

The Eskimos have released Adarius Bowman, who was reportedly due a $140,000 roster bonus this month. Does Ed Hervey take a stab at him in free agency to replace Nick Moore or as a fourth international WR? Montreal is another potential landing spot, where he would be reunited with Kavis Reed. Bowman...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I wouldn't break the bank on Craig Roh, but I would definitely bring him back to camp. 7 sacks last year (I seem to recall he had he a couple negated by penalties too). That total (7) was only one behind Odell Willis and Willie Jefferson. He only just turned 27 as well. DH :cool: I like Roh over Ba...

Re: Throwback Thursday

http://gdurl.com/2tua Gary Robinson was a local SFU product that played 9 seasons(!) in black and orange (1969-77 + one season with Hamilton in '78), but surprisingly little is known about him. For example, I have never seen him at games (they often feature alumni signing autographs on the concours...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I wouldn't say Fabien is a key piece on the O-line. He was awful last year. Don't like seeing Johnson back either, we need to really upgrade our O-line. Yes, I should have said Steward and Fabien are the two remaining national starters who have yet to be signed. I think Steward is a key piece of th...

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

We are not out of the woods yet. Braley is Problem #1. And this despite all he has done to support and save the Lions franchise. Instead of selling in 2017, we have seen football operation moves. In pro sports when a team is struggling, they make moves, even if the moves are mostly window dressing....

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

Rigmaiden found us some very good talent (Micah Awe, Dyshawn Davis, TJ Lee, Kendall James etc.) but ultimately, I believe he paid the price for not delivering sufficient upgrades on the O and D lines this year. Our national tackles were charitably average (at best). Our D-line recruits were all acc...

Re: 2018 schedule

I love the 7 pm. Saturday starts but the Lions may have to rethink their priorities for next year if there is a big update on discounted kids' season tickets. The 4 p.m start times seemed to attract more families with young kids. This doesn't make any sense to me. * Build off-season marketing initi...

Would like to see more 4pm games on Saturday. And by more, I mean all of them.

Don't see a need for the 3rd bye week, what's worse is BC has all three in the first half of the season.
its player saftety related, plus BC has the most travel time in league. A few teams only have 2 byes

Re: Washington is back as DC. Melvin as DL coach

don't see scheme changing with MW back and wally in charge ... get ready for more 8 man drops.

Hopefully, 4 man rush will improve with a bunch of new players and Melvin in at coach.
