    Training Camp 2018

    some thoughts... Firstly it appears a few guys have come to camp in better shape ..Harris looks leaner and faster..Poop as well looks more buff and a bit more lean...and still is so damn powerful. Faith too looks much better...Quicker and more agile...and in better game shape for CFL ball...he got knicked up in the one on ones but took turns in team session later so must be ok...3rd and 1.5...I dont see him as still a project...he has improved and is more expolive...i took time to study d-line a bit so more on that later... Receivers..not gonna focus on the projected starters too much...is what it is but Demski actually impressed me somewhat...he's better than what i recall and if injury free i see him doing good things this year in a Lapo offence White...cant see this guy not being on the gameday roster and taking significant first team reps...he is just plain good. He is what we use to call a QB enhancer as he can make any QB look good and has the ability to use his speed and fluidness and his uncanny ability to track a ball to make it look like the QB is always on the money..He is Dresslers replacement when that day comes...and if Dress gets hurt this year and misses significant games..he may have trouble getting his spot back...White is that good Coney and Dye as well impressed..shifty and fast and catch the ball in stride and hit upfield in 5th gear in an instant. Washington has the potential to be an Adarius 2.0 sans the drops...didnt wow in practice too much today, but if used how I think they plan to, may be one of the guys who when lights are on just produce. Lankford to me just looks too unatural as a receiver..too much of a body catcher and has limited route running skills..Seeing as Demski and White can do returns...don't see a need for him to e rostered as a DI and see him as a camp cut Canadian wise..Demski is solid and looks to be more north south this year and not the dance around side stepper he tended to be in Sask...if he keeps that up he will produce big...and avaoid injuries too...also him comin out of backfield with Harris on some sets is really going to cause trouble for defenses..speaking of Harris if they eventually do transition him to a slot role he will flourish...solid mitts on the guy Simonese u can see the rust flaking away..i noticed from combine..to mini..to main camp. He is deceptively fast and caught everything thrown at him..and seems to be very fast when ball is in his hands...he could cause some mismatches on the edge and today showed a nice ability to get separation from the db. Him and Drew I see taking equal reps in the offence until one or the other separates and shows they are more of a game breaker...then the split of reps will be more one sided..Peterson too impressed..fast..good hands...decent route runner...we are going to be ok with National receivers if u ask me..even with 2 rookies more or less in the lineup...should be noted Tyler Henry actually didnt look out of place but as did Pierre but they may be victims of numbers game..though [Pierre offers use on ST's Obviously Nichols is starter looked good...no suprise, Ross tho...impressed....throws a good ball...can move around and i dont think will get flustered...u can see he sees the field well and actually looks through his progressions and finds the right guy. I think if he has to come in to a game we are gonna be all right,,,and actually better off than if we had Durant here..and his broken down passing now...Strevler is behind Ross at moment but thats more from bein a raw rookie and learning as he goes...can tell though he is a Mike Reilly threat to gain gobs of yards on the ground if he had too... Dline guys on roster will be interesting to see who makes gameday. POOP looks to be primed for a big year..guys a beast...Jeffcoat has one end spoy I'm certain...Pretty sure Roh at the least is a DI..now it gets interesting...Nevis seemed to have more burst this year...but if Brandon Bryant shows well in pre-season..he (Nevis)may be in trouble and a TC casualty..Bryant is quick off the ball and has a lot of power to go with his quickness. Same with OPO...of nthe new comers Montgomery really stood out...had some clean wins in the one on ones and is so fast off the edge..and has great pursuit...lCasher as well...but of the 2...Montgomery is just better. Larry Webster is a bit more raw...but freakish athletic and can see him on PR as depth behind our 3 import starters...It wouldnt shock me if both OPO and Nevis get bumped off the roster...but gut says to start year only one will be cut..i hink it Nevis Faith i think looked a lot better...and a guy who didnt look out of place was Marouf..has some power and quickness and actually some pretty decent technique..he is way more athletic and versatile than Thomas and I can see why the team didnt ring him back...if Marouf is replacing Thomas on roster...we are better for it DB's are gonna be Randle..Loffler..for sure...Alexander looks good this spring...u can tell he understands the game much better and doesnt have to think now...just react..plus he has nice size...had a nice pick today too...Walker was steady and always involved...and looked more polished...and at only 22 this yr his upside is huge. a guy who stood out to me was Mohamad SEISAY...he got hurt mid practice and was missing for a while but i seen him at the end..not sure how bad, but he did some things that made me notice..as did Gaitor... I think a combo of Fenner..Leggett..Randle..Alexander..Gaitor..Loffler will be our game day guys in some capacity...and with addition of Bighill who is excellent in coverage too our defense is going to be pretty stingy. Linebacking is tough to gauge in camps like this

    Back Up QB

    My name is Bud Ross and I'm Alex Ross' grandfather. The competition for the QB backup slot at training camp will be intense. Here's a brief introduction of Alex with some history: As a freshman at Alpharetta High school, Alpharetta, Ga., he led the freshman team to an undefeated season. Coaching changes at Alpharetta, prompted him to transfer To Buford High School, Buford, Ga. Because of transfer rules, he couldn’t play varsity until his junior year. He led Buford to Georgia State championships his junior and senior years. He virtually owns the record book at Coastal Carolina University. He thinks, lives, and breathes football. Happy to be on board, Bud Ross

    Training Camp 2018

    I was there yesterday...cold in those stands. Most of the day was teaching so everything was split up in segments on the field, e.g. linemen one area, defence another and so on. When I first got there our drafted kicker Felix Menard-Briere was on the field by himself. He was kicking field goals from the 55 yard line. The first 3 or 4 fell at the 5 yard line, but the rest went through the posts easily and was very accurate. Not quite sure about his punting though. He was on the field all practice running the end zone by himself. There are so many receivers in camp and so many Canadians for a change, pretty much focused on them when they were actually doing something to watch, which was not too often...but saw a lot of potential out there, much more than some previous seasons. Notables Donteea Dye #77 very interesting...good hands small and quick and very athletic Tylor Henry national did not look out of place Rashaun Simonize national #13...hmmm...big and fast, can see why he had an NFL look. Right now? not yet sold on his hands...lots of potential there for sure, but what good is a receiver if they are not reliable? Johnny Augustine #35, National, fast and strong, appears to have great hands out of the backfield and would be a load on 2nd and short. Was very impressed with him. Can't believe he wasn't drafted and then Edmonton signed him last year. Maybe something we don't know? Tyrone Pierre national #73, is big and strong looking and appears to have good hands and is fast enough caught virtually everything thrown his way Brendon Thera-Plamondon national also did not look out of place Corey Washington #6 Int...Looks very good and made some nice catches. Looks like we let the right Washington go Myles White Int #14 is really quick and has excellent hands, defensive backs would have hands full with him, sort of like a dressler type Drew Wolitarsky #82 national...looks much improved from last year, rooting for him. Didn't pay to much attention to the Qb's, but Strevelor is big and athletic and looks to have a quick release and strong arm. Ross looked good as well, will be interesting who plants themselves in the #2 spot. Also didn't pay too much attention to the D, but did see some nice interceptions and looks like there is plenty of speed. Only glad that Sam Hurl is gone, but if the defence runs the same way as last year, only improved skill levels from the defence will save the job of Richie Hall. Sorry I couldn't have done better but it was mostly a teaching practice

    Mini-camp info - April 24-26

    some observations... LB's Gause ...thick..fast ..agile and looks to be front runner as the MLB..or at the least the DI spot. For a bigger guy very agile and capable of covering sideline to sideline as he showed in skelly...has a powerul jab/punch and would have no issue scrapping along line and shedding blocks to stuff the run...very impressed Wilson too..very similar but not as agile...but plays with confidence..as did Gause. Not as quick as Gause but would have no issue covering a back in the flats and playing sideline to sideline...I would say him and Gause are prime candidate for the MLB role and I think Gause is the better,,,he's just darn good Jones is not as quick and not as agile..but solidly built...practices like this are hard to judge a guys true worth, but he is behind the two I mentioned..though he looks to be a guy who could lay the lumber. Be interesting TC and if we roll all import at Linebacker i could truly see JSK/Gause and Legget/Fenner with Wilson or maybe Wild as the extra...if we able to roster wise have all those guys that be sweet but one of Wilson/wild i think will be PR'd or cut DB's Hate to Roc Carmichale a guy but Earl Wolff will start...smooth..savy pro who has extra greasy swivel to him and can just manouver and adjust at will to put himself in position to just make plays...and he is solid too...I actually wouldn't be surprised to see him at SAM too...he one way or another will be on the roster and a guy who can play..and excell at CB/HB/SAM...not sure why he isn't stlll in the NFL...BUt it's our gain..guy is legit...just knows where he is and where things were headed and has nose for the ball Bingham too also impressed...looked confident and has a real knack for arriving the ame time as the ball and busting things up...didn't give up much cushion and can really see him fitting in this defense as a ball hawk..With him..Wolff..Fenner..Leggett..Randle...i see it being a tough camp for one of..if not any of Fogg..Gaitor or Clarke sticking...gonna be a good battle...nobody else really stood out, but again...was watching multiple things going on so its tough. receivers...man if we could have this ratio thing cleared up to start 4 imports we have some talent to choose from with options to start4 and have 2 back-ups on roster not named Lankford Best of group is Stevens by far..silky smooth...fast and just has ability to seperate easily..and often....he can run his routes and cut like Denmark could without gearing down but is big and can win battles for the ball...how he isn't kept around would be troubling. Never seen him drop a thing and everything he does just looks polished Same can be said about C Washignton...big..knows how to use that body and he is very quick for a dude his size..real nice hands and with this feild size..already seems to know where to find the seams and get the ball in stride...he could cause all kinds of havoc in the middle third of the field... Can also see why Myles White was kept all yr..and brough back...lightning in a bottle and is so fast..out of his cuts..and once ball hits his hands..which are real good..best route runner out there..has a fifth gear he can jump into on the fly and tracks balls better than I have seen here in a long while..I hope he gets to show his return abilities becuse he has them too and can be a reason for us to be abe to roster hopefully 2 import receivers as a backup on game day... LDW as well still has to be in the conversation..he has gained some size and looks more comfortable and polished...and his route running is much improved..he runs with meaning and purpose now it seems...confidence a familiarity does that..I also noticed he did some work on technique and is now a hand catcher as opposed to using his body as much..good on him as it allows receivers to play with speed better (which he has ample amounts of )and catch balls in stride... I also noticed A.J Coney...he is quick and runs sharp routes and once ball is in his hands seems to be a threat to bust a big play...could be a camp dark horse...not sure if he is a returner..but that could be an ace in the hole for him Anyway thats my opinions and thiughts..feel free to comment or rip it apart hahahaha

    Training Camp 2018

    Saw what a beautiful day it was going to be and took a vacation day. Took in Bomber training camp this morning. Bringing a 2 year old (some might have seen him wanting to get onto the football field) and a 3 week old there, I wasn't able to watch a ton...and let's be honest, we're all there to watch the 1 on 1s. You can definitely see the polish and level that the new guys (Thompkins and Reuben) bring to camp. Guys like Coney and Dye, who may have been the front runners to try to get a spot on the roster (or at least be the "next guy up") didn't impress me too much, and I couldn't see them being there in the end. That said, Myles White is the real deal. Looked uncoverable in the one on ones. He might not have been drawing Randle in coverage, but he was making the guy he was lining up against look silly pretty routinely. Was also lining up to return kicks. He's my pick to make the team. Canadian receivers: Daniel Petermann. What can you say. He is looking like a training camp superstar. Demski wasn't taking too many reps this practice and Petermann made play after play after play. Couple deep balls, some catches in the middle. Super excited about him. Simonise looked real good and even Henry is looking much better this year. Don't know how many reps Wolitarsky had. Pierre was helping with the receivers (off crutches I guess) along with Corey Washington (imp). Overall the receivers are looking darn good. After the receivers, the player that really stood out to me in special teams drills was Jacob Firlotte. He was getting down the field pretty quick and has an intriguing size to him. Dark horse? Quarterbacks...I think they all had their moments. In Skele I think you'd give the edge to Ross for processing the field much quicker than Streveler. Not unexpected. Streveler made some nice throws as well. Mention to Faith Ekakite who took the time to walk over to my 2 year old and give him a fist bump. By the end of practice, my little guy was way overtired but I think he had fun.

    First Eskimo touch.....Robinson guy runs back punt 95 yds for TD...... Nichols getting some pressure and pops, early....... Randle fights receiver for ball...Clarke guy grabs INT..... Harris takes screen and rips a run, for a couple of first downs.... Nichols then hits Bowman in end zone, for 15 yd TD pass Zach Cline come in to QB the Esks.....sacked on first snap.... ..then chucks up 50 yd sideline pass.... D. Adams draws long PI call for about 50 yards..... Bowman can sure find his way open against zone D.... Medlock makes it 10-7 Robinson not getting much ground, since his TD return...... Jake Thomas flushes QB out of pocket.....Opo gets the sack Thomas then clobbers Cline, who scrambled out of the pocket.... Nichols overthrows Bowman couple of times..... One which turns into an INT, with a long return.... ...but Bowman will be a key component of this O. Cline looking shaky, since the Thomas hit...... Taking a sack from Roh....doesn't help Constant pass rush from the Blue D.... AJ Coney returns a missed FG 65 yards..... Demski catches his 1st as a Bomber..... ...then draws a PI call.... Medlock 45 yds, into the wind...makes 13-7 ...but game really more lopsided than that.. Esks doing nothing on O....their OL getting killed.... Nichols departs....enter Alex Ross.... ...who looks a little nervous in the service.... Danny O'Brian guy now the QB for Esks....... Chris Streveler now at the controls for the Blue. ....hits Wolitarsky for first down, then Adams... Ach du Lieber! Augustine bust up the gut 17 yds for TD.. 20-10....score starting to look....more like it. Opo and Roh, still bringing pressure... Ross rushing things a bit....couple of bad under throws... 2nd half....need to really peruse that ole roster sheet.... Streveler starts 2nd half at QB...scrambles for first down. Simonise makes good leaping catch. The toss/sweep running plays.....could use some work.. Menard-Briere guy makes it 23-10. Two scoring drives for Streveler. Announced crowd of 23,034. Nice try. Streveler throws it up for White, who wins jump ball... ...then turns on the burners and goes 85 yds for the TD Streveler is 7 for 7 and has put 17 points up on the board Thought Ross was supposed to be the experienced guy? Doesn't matter which QB in for Esks....they are all getting the bum's rush. Augustine still running hard.....guy has some pop. Even with reserves in....Bomber D shows plenty of speed... 2nd string officials have some problems with ball placement.... 2nd string scoreboard person...gives Esks a Bomber punt single.. At this point, Eskimo OL holding and tackling, all over the place.. Streveler has nice run up the middle...but doesn't protect ball - fumble. Bomber backup OL doing pretty good work on the run game. Everybody else getting pressure...so Trent Corney gets in on the act.. RB Thomas has some pretty good wheels... Now DE Sam Montgomery make a couple of plays.... Menard-Briere hits a low liner to make it 33-13. This O&S is a bit bigger that I anticipated... So is the gin.

    Darian Durant Retires

    His petulant retaliatory behaviour on Twitter the last two days is actually sickening. There's no defending or justifying what he's done. You're done with football...? That's fine. But show some goddamned class and be a ******* man about it. What kind of self-respecting professional athlete bails on the one team who gave you the opportunity to continue your CFL career, greedily keep money you absolutely don't deserve, and then proceed to take childish digs at that very team...? What a pathetic, disgraceful, *****-made piece of ****.

    Quentin Gause #42 is a very thick guy. Broke up a play in his area. Physically solid. Was probably the second heaviest guy out there, behind Goosen. Kind of a nice day within the stadium but windy as heck outside. No Durant, confirmed. Notable on the D, #37 Zavian Bingham dB, played the receivers physically and very tight breaking up plays and got a few cheers from fellow D men. He was mugging L. Washington but Wash still came up with a one handed grab. #45 Chinedu Oparuku good size and appeared eager. #19 Kylie Wilson looks like he’ll be competing for a LB position, focused. #12 not on field but #18 replaced him. Have no idea who #18 is. #16 Tyler Stewart threw the ball the hardest of all four qbs out there. 15 and 13 rounded out the qbs. #13 Nelson looked the most challenged of the qbs. #32 Cierre Wood RB is enthusiastic, fast, and hustles. Might be his schooling. He sure brought it. Receivers, good news bad news. #87 Tony Stevens has presence out there and is going to compete for a job, with Lankford and Washington. #14 Myles White grabbed a long pass and outran a couple dbs for a TD. #12 Adarius Bowman, he’s big, but, oh, hate to say it, he dropped a couple. #44 Prewitt should go home. Disinterested. all numbers on jersey are for mini camp only.

    A lot of news nowadays is about sensational headlines, #fakenews, mass shootings, sexual misconduct, and a lot of things that tend to have a negative spin. Main stream news anyway ... sports news is more about well sports news. I find it refreshing when we get the odd feel good story thrown in. As you suggest, I think this type of stuff happens more often than not, but what is wrong with celebrating that? Celebrating simple humanity should happen more often than it does to remind everyone that in general, there are more "good" people out there than scumbags.
