    Interesting idea. Cutting him may win the room (if the players are truly onboard and sick of his act), but you likely add to a serious PR problem at a time when the organization is already teetering on the brink.

    I think they might as well trade him while they can get something, but you’d have to think the return will be iffy unless someone is desperate. Everyone will know the clock is ticking and I don’t suppose others will be that quick to try to...

    Seems to be a good fit. I don't believe he really ever wanted to leave Edmonton. I wonder if O'Neal was a Jones loyalist who went on his own, or if there was a little pressure applied for him to walk away to facilitate something like this. I'm looking...

    Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but could it be that Simon wanted Ford and Jones trusted him and the scouts with the Canadian draft? While I know all drafts are crapshoots, it's interesting how Makonzo isn't around now and Ford may not be around...

    The timing surprises me on the short week, and I might have less confidence in Simon at the helm than I would have had in Jones riding out the year. Also interesting to give JJ the interim role. I guess we’ll see how it plays out from here.

    But why is it worse with similar personnel? Injuries and inconsistency, or has it not really been great under Sorrells and last year the playbook and Ford’s style masked it a bit?



    Oakman was a free agent who wasn’t...

    They shouldn’t cut him without a valid replacement, and I’m not completely sure that A) Faithfull is it, or B) a guy like Blanchard comes back when he now has options if cut down south, but for Bede’s pay, if you’re not considering...

    The scary thing is that I don’t think the good teams in the CFL are necessarily as dominant as we’ve seen some years, but they execute. We just can’t seem to make it happen with consistency.

    With all our high-priced receivers,...

    Two big misses for Bede late with the FG miss and the kickoff. Add in the kickoff single early and it’s been a rough night. I’m not sure he’s been worth the big money. Blanchard or Faithfull may not hurt.

    Another Leake...

    That may have been his highest point for value, but maybe they hope someone has an injury and gets desperate. I never thought the development angle would work to keep him from free agency. Guess we’ll see soon if Jones gave him a good sales pitch,...

    Ford was always adamant that he wasn’t in the league (or going south, for that matter) to be an “athlete” or gadget player, but he wanted to play as a QB. I’m not sure if he meant no packages or no sets outside of being the one...

    Rick Campbell would be my idea of a former Edmonton coach I’d love to come back and run the program, but I don’t see that one in the cards any day soon....

    Maas now is a better coach than Maas then. He’s mellowed and matured. I’m not sure that would have happened without him moving around a bit and gaining some more perspective.

    I didn’t have a problem with him going as I...

    Yeah, it’s strange they haven’t made it official. Maybe an announcement for Oakman will follow Monday now that bye week is done. I’ve also seen some social media speculation that Derrick Moncrief could be on the field this week also....

    I agree that I’d focus on the interior. I’m not as high on Kurdyla. I feel Grahovac may be a solution if given opportunity....

    I’m hoping that some continuity on the O-line with Boyko back might be all that is needed there. They need to figure out a run attack and stick with it though.

    i agree it would be nice to add more of experience at LB and DB, but I’m...

    I'm really happy to see Oakman signed. The Elks need some more experience in the front seven on defence and he'll bring it. If he can get some pressure in the backfield and jam the run, that makes the team so much more effective.

    I agree with Looner that the defence needs the most attention right now, and so far we've heard crickets as far as attracting a veteran or two that may play on that side of the ball. If there are guys to be had, you would think they'd want to get them...

    Anyone have a read on Mathis? Seems like a big gamble to risk what could be a first overall pick next year....
