Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

Stuff is happening. And some stuff stays the same. LOL My hunch ... The Three Survivors are back in business here in 2018. Wally, of course. And his two compadres, Mark Washington and Dan Dorazio. Responsibility for the failures of the defence goes largely to Mark, IMO. Including the choice of perso...

Re: Lions name Jarious Jackson offensive coordinator and QB coach

So does he become JJ III after Jennings and Johnson or does he get promoted to JJ I as the senior JJ? JJ7 JJ10 JJ24 ? Yup. JJ7 JJ10 JJ24. This fan is very happy with the news. JJ7 is an outstanding character guy. Absolutely a rock. As noted he has paid his dues. He is a guy a new Head Coach would l...

Re: 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Thread

Anyone watched the Alabama senate race tonight ? Democratic Jones pulled an upset over Republican Roy Moore. Yes. Good to hear. The minorities got out to vote this time. They did not do so to the same extent when Hillary lost to Trump. It is the minorities that will determine the future of the USA....

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

I really don't think Brent is interested in coaching. Not exactly certain what he's doing now, but he was working in finance in some capacity - probably making good coin. He did move to Calgary for a spell, but is back here in Vancouver as far as I know. Highly doubt he'd be interested in giving up...

Re: Lions trade Chris Williams to Montreal for Gabe Knapton

Could be a good trade for us. He had good sack totals in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

We got very little out of Chris Williams.

Re: Whither Jonathon Jennings?

On the face of it, a good move by Popp.

It works for both teams.

I agree with Sammy. No move by Hervey re Franklin could be seen as support for Jennings.

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

Interesting, Sammy. At times, I have wondered about Blake Nill being a Head Coach in the CFL. Bring 'em both in next year. Personally if there's one thing that scares me as much as anything it's when a long time collegiate coach takes a pro head coaching job be it in football, hockey or basketball....

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

So Blake Nill lures Ti-Cats offensive coordinator and former McMaster head coach Stefan Ptaszek to the west coast to become UBC's new OC. I wonder if the Lions can do better? http://3downnation.com/2017/12/09/west-coast-shocker-former-ticats-and-mcmaster-coach-accepts-job-at-ubc/ As suggested by ot...

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

The Big Three return: Wally, Mark and Dan. Interesting choice for a "big three" (only one of which has been confirmed as returning, incidentally). I would put the GM above the offensive line coach in terms of overall impact (not to diminish the importance of the offensive line). Hmmmm ... Not think...

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

The bottom line: In a normal situation Wally would retain VP role, hire Ed Hervey and let Ed hire his HC and coaching staff. Given that there's effectively no President, Wally would assume that role. Wally could mentor the new GM on how to deal with the owner, the President and fans and the media b...

From Farhan Lalji. Most of Wally's assistant coaches are gone but Dan Dorazio seems to have survived. https://twitter.com/FarhanLaljiTSN/status/939389906375335936 Dan Dorazio is the ultimate survivor in Wally's World.

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

Hervey might improve the International talent in the D Line. O Line? IMO that is a coaching matter that changes in personnel will not fix. Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Saskatchewan will not be standing pat. One might even expect improvement in each. The coaching staffs are effective and stable. I...
