    Training Camp 2018

    I was around for TJ Rubley, Kevin McDugall, etc. and I think Brohm was the worst quarterback I've ever seen. Dinwiddie had a cannon compared to that guy.

    This prospect is damned with faint praise.

    Friday June 1st Edmonton here

    Preseason matters......you have to get the new horseflesh in there, and find out who really gets it done, when the footballs are flying and the pads a-popping. You have to be looking to upgrade positions, every year regardless of record. Take myself....after all this time, I don't just sit on my laurels. Gin shelf is always being restocked.

    Seriously?? If they don't bring in talent, people ***** that there's no competition and the scouts need to do more. So they bring in people and now we're complaining that the Bombers are bringing in too much talent? Unfreaking believable...

    Jahad Thomas RB Temple Grade 5.05 ? 4.62 SEC, 11 REPS 32.0 INCH 116.0 INCH 5'10" Height 30 1/8" Arm Length 190LBS. Weight 9" Hands Overview Thomas wears the number five jersey as a tribute to USC Heisman Trophy winner (forfeited or not) and current NFL running back Reggie Bush. He's been an all-around contributor for the Owls over the past four years, starting as a kick returner in his true freshman season (24-476). Thomas cleared 1,000 all-purpose yards as a sophomore, carrying the ball 80 times for 384 yards (with four starts at running back) and contributing as a receiver (14-364, one TD) and returner (14-332 on kicks). Finally taking on the full rushing load in 2015, he garnered first-team All-American Athletic Conference notice (276-1,262, 17 TDs rushing; 22-216, one TD receiving; 6-199, TD on kick returns). Thomas was a second-team All-AAC pick in 2016, even though he missed the first two games of the year with a sprain in his left hand (207-953, 13 TDs rushing; 33-418, six TDs receiving; 2-28 kick returns; 8-101 punt returns). Analysis Strengths: Possesses plus play. Shows burst both around the corner on the play-side as well as out of his cuts. Vision extends beyond what's in front of him, finding linebackers early and reacting to their flow. Choppy footwork allows for quick cutting in tight spaces. Has experience in a pro-style rushing attack. Excellent pass catcher. Able to line up in slot and create separation as a receiver. Able to create yards after catch with his speed. Has ability to help out as kick or punt returner. Voted to wear single-digit number by teammates, which indicates toughness inside Temple program. Weaknesses: Small and spindly. When he takes a solid shot, the run stops almost immediately. Has logged very few broken tackles as he's unable to generate necessary power in his lower half. Struggles to play with consistent balance through contact. Runs more upright than expected. Could benefit from more efficient usage of a stiff-arm with his off hand. At times, will decelerate into contact. Is a willing pass protector but just not big or strong enough to do so consistently. Sources Tell Us: "He's a player who fits very specific needs so it's hard to tell where he might go. If you want a player who can return kicks, catch some passes and be a third or fourth running back, he gives that. I think he's tough enough to play. He'll get drafted based on his roster flexibility more than anything." -- Area scout for NFC East team NFL Comparison: Marcus Murphy Bottom Line: Productive running back lacking in NFL-caliber size and strength but who makes up for it with his quickness and ability to help as a pass catcher and return man. While it's hard to imagine him handling more than just a few carries per game as an NFL runner, his roster flexibility could work in his advantage. With his ability to operate from the slot and as a jet-sweep runner, he could be an interesting toy for a creative play-caller. -Lance Zierlein

    My god, we are well nigh unbeatable. This calls for gin...

    Jeez. How many running backs do we need at training camp? The airfare alone must be getting way up there.

    Training Camp 2018

    I thought it was Nevis and Hurl last year. I don't mind Lankford in the right situations on offense even if we're not actually throwing the ball to him, however I don't think we need him if he's just going to return kicks.

    Eh, removing Willy, Macho, and Neufeld and replacing them Nichols, Loffler, and Bond is what made us the the team we are today. It’s a team game sure but when it comes to the O-line or secondary one player is fully capable of making the entire unit look bad.
  13. Throw Long Bannatyne

    Training Camp 2018

    Neither played enough to make much of a difference and in Macho's case he actually played quite well in a limited role on S.T.. His reputation preceded him from his time with the Riders. I actually made the list in jest to serve the "haters", I think it's completely idiotic to blame the woes of a football team on a select few individuals, it's a team game.

    We can’t forget Lin J Shell and we definitely can’t forget Macho Harris.

    Saw Solo. It was the usual kind of Ron Howard movie, it's really well-made but not great. I give it a B.

    It feels like Nevis or Neufeld are the guys this year. Outside chance to Anthony Gaitor or Steven Clarke.

    I guess we'll find out. I'm just saying that salary is getting eaten up elsewhere and there won't necessarily be room to pay all our prospects... good, young players are going to be traded away. I'd be okay with moving Perreault but would there be any trade partners? I'm not so sure.

    Kane signing 49 million deal...

    The players are sheep. Whatever Fehr tells them to do, they know nothing about labour relations. Most of them barely have their grade 12. .

    Stanley Cup final.....

    What is this "point" that people speak of ?.........I said Reaves an Eakins are from the peg, so them bringing the cup to the city would generate a party. Others speak of people who aren't from Winnipeg bringing the cup to the city.........and are making some kind of comparison ? toews is from Winnipeg......hence the party when he showed up with the cup. Now Add in the bomber connection with Reaves and Eakins.......I would say if Vegas wins they should have a social at IGF celebrating these two.

    I think all the forwards are back - even Stastny on a three year deal... Morrissey-Trouba Morrow-Buff Niku-Myers I could see Kulikov moved to Edmonton or Toronto... just for cap space
