CFL TRADE DEADLINE !!!

Recommended Posts

I'd like to hear....'serious talks for Greene OR Jackson about to be culminated'...BUT we've been so damn quiet lately and Walters seems to have disappeared ,that I also won't be that surprised that we pass on addition that'll help down the stretch

I don't think it will be the bombers saying no.. I think other teams will. I just dont see it. Bauming suggested they are trying but isn't sure if other teams will agree.

All but two teams are in the thick of it.  Also, the usual bargaining chips used by buyers at a trade deadline is prospects and/or draft picks.  While important, the CFL draft is not the immediate game changer of other leagues.  The other thing about professional football is that scheme and ratio-management are huge.  An MLB team picking up a starting pitcher or an NFL team picking up a second line centre can be plug and play.  There are very few situations that a player can arrive and contribute without an equal amount of disruption.

While fans love the idea of putting together a fantasy football team, the reality is much different.

Duane Forde mentioning that the Bombers should make a play for Ernest Jackson was the only intelligent comment made on Friday's broadcast.   If only...

With all the draft picks Walters has accumulated and all the ones Montreal have given away you'd think there would be something to be worked out there. Guy like Jackson could really help this team.

I'd prefer Cunningham over Jackson....   I wouldn't want to give up much though for any of them though...

I seriously don't see anyone available that would make a huge difference to the bombers - not sure I want Jackson at 32 or SJ Green...  we already have Dressler

Maybe Stef Logan or Chris Rainey....?

I'm skeptical - don't see a deal out there...

A big time receiver.

And a 32 year old Ernest Jackson is that now....?  Or a concussed SJ Green?

What big time receiver is available - honest question

I don't necessarily think either one of them is a "big time" receiver, but they'd certainly be an upgrade. When you got a group of 7s, you don't pass up an 8 because you're looking for a 10.

But what if you end up getting a 3 dressed up as a 9?

Slim pickings on those rosters...

Montreal - I'd only look at Tevaughn Campbell or Sean Jamieson (as 6th OL)

Toronto - Armanti Edwards, if Laing is FA coming up - maybe could pry him out

But yeah aside from that - there's literally no one on those rosters that will make us better

Darvin Adams is having a better season than any of them. 

What I’m thinking of is looking at an improvement for our third import spot.
