Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

The best thing about the Lions being in the basement in the standings and possibly finishing there (both teams ahead of the Lions hold the tie breaker over them) is that likely it will mean moving on from some of the seemingly tenured coach staff. The only way that's going to happen is with new own...

I don't think Long is outkicking the coverage, rather I think the coverage stinks. That's on WB. Seems like half the unit is stashed DL
Agree, there were numerous times players were in position to make the tackle and didn't

Foucault to me seemed to lack good feet movement. Lacks mobility.

Jeremiah Johnson had only 2 carries in the second half. Lions keep beating themselves by stopping what works.

Re: Bazzie signs with Lions

The league has apparently spoken to Awe in a conference call and Buono will sit down with him tomorrow when they return to practice.

Re: Als hire Ken Miller as offensive consultant

An outstanding football career does not automatically translate into an outstanding coach. Calvillo may be another in a long list of players that can't make the transition into coaching.

Re: Als hire Ken Miller as offensive consultant

Lions may have the talent but the coaches have no idea how to utilize their talents. I give you the case of Chris Williams as an example.

Re: Bazzie signs with Lions

Bazzie will improved our pass rush but we are still missing an impact defensive lineman or two.

Re: Als hire Ken Miller as offensive consultant

I would be both surprised and shocked that Buono would bring in an offensive consultant. That would be tantamount to admitting something is wrong with the game plan.

Bouno wont be back but rumour has it he will name Washington as next HC.Which would mean more of the same as he would keep most or all of the current staff.However if this poor play continues the team couldnt sell bringing back the same staff. Hope the new owners will nixed that idea. I've had enou...

Re: B.C. at Calgary Sept. 16, 2017

So much for self scouting during their bye week. Stamps did a exemplary job of noting BC tendencies. Even a casual fan can predict with a reasonable accuracy on what's coming.

Re: Stampeders 27 - Lions 13, Post-Stats and Comments

It's the same thing we've been talking about for the past several years and yet still no improvement. Same old, same old. As far as I'm concerned, Buono's days are numbered. The sooner he and his coaching staff is gone the better for this fan.

Khari Jones need to help Jennings by calling for some quick safe passes to build his confidence instead of having him sit in the pocket behind a porous offensive line and going long.
