Re: Juicing in the CFL

i'm waiting for one person in any sport to say "yes, i'm guilty. i juiced to get competitive advantage"..... and not years after allegations and/or positive test. That will happen when Donald Trump admit that he's been lying the past 4 years. Donald Trump would probably tell you himself that he is ...

Re: Lions Interested in Micah Johnson

Even if Johnson has another down year it would still be a Lions Dline upgrade.

Re: Teams Can Start making Offers to Free agents.

I agree with Hambone’s assessment. Overall, it’s a buyer’s market. Want a starting offensive or defensive lineman or defensive back? There are plenty of candidates on the market, and most will likely still be there next week. Want a game-breaking all-star and potential CFL Award winner? Make your b...

Re: Is Willie Jefferson Hervey's No 1 Target?

Jefferson only worked out for Miami and refused to work out for others feeling his game tape was enough. After that, I heard no more news on his NFL dream and now is back headlining the CFL free agent market. I think his refusal to work out for other NFL teams turned them off him for they wondered ...

Re: End of the Road for Jennings & Carter?

I think Carter was wasted last year..... "wasted" in the sense that the offensive schemes did not use his skills. There were many times that he was open and the play went to the other side of the field. If the word "misdirection" had been in the repertoire of our last OC, he would have had a better...

Re: Lions signings for 2020

The Lions have reportedly signed former Redblacks QB Will Arndt and former NFL defensive end Cap Capi. Arndt, 26, who was released by Ottawa last week, announced his signing on Twitter Thursday morning. He is a big QB at 6 ft. 5 and 215 lbs. He took over as Ottawa's starting QB late in the 2019 sea...

Re: Coaching staff announced.

Reilly's overly high salary is what is influencing the calibre of the rest of the team. That and the $250k that the Lions are overpaying Suk Chung.

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

Really good answer David. Thank you. My heart goes out to the fans and hope that it gets worked out. I agree that it was unlikely they cleared the debts left behind never mind putting anything on franchise value. Your point clearly made regarding the expectations of value for the Lions. On the othe...

Re: Free Agent Predictions

The way I look at it for the Lions, Reilly has two more expensive contract years left, so it means two years to find and develop the next starting QB. It also means going with young less experienced and less expensive players in other positions due to SMS constraints. And in two years time, hopefull...

Re: Which Impeding BC Free Agent Defensive Player are Lions Most Likely to Sign

Not sure if the bridge was burnt with no return but Sol Elimimian was one of the best deals in the league last year. Hard to think Ed passed on $160,000 as was rumored to be the number he signed in Sask for. Derek Taylor had him listed as only missing something like 8 tackles all year. Would love t...

Re: Which Impeding BC Free Agent Defensive Player are Lions Most Likely to Sign

I think that the big drop off in effective play with D line from 2018 to 2019 was due to letting D line coach Randy Melvin go. He was the best D line coach that the Lions have ever had, having been with the Lions the last time they won a Grey Cup. Melvin coached and mentored Kalif Mitchell to behave...

Re: Will Lions Overhaul the roster for 3rd year in a Row

Most CFL rosters have a high turnover rate every year. Lions have some openings at D line and LB so there is the overhaul. I guess.
