Where? 

Defence and depth are massive question marks for you guys this year. Reminds me a lot of the 2018 Eskimos. I think you will finish anywhere from 2nd to 4th in the West. I do like your team more than the Riders or Eskimos right now.

And weren't we ridiculed for signing Medlock to a large contract? A guy who actually puts up a ton of points on the board?

If Ryan could punt and kick field goals on top of being Canadian he would be worth $100k.

If Ryan could kick FGs even at 80-85%... he'd be worth 200k...

Thing with Medlock is he is absorbing two salaries with his one salary being able to do all 3 facets of the kicking game..and as being one of the best at it...he is making basically a very modest salary at each when you break it down, so really we are saving money when you look at it

I believe it was reported he was making around 175k... so the way I always look at it is we're paying around 75k for an average punter and around 100k for the most accurate FG kicker in the league... seems like a good deal to me...

I think you are referring to numbers in his original contract...he took a shave last year and I believe for this year he is under 160k...either way though...good value none the less for a guy who is tiops in his league at his position taking 2 jobs

Essentially the entire defence, IMO. Definitely got some talent on offence but I don't see anything at DE or LB worth getting excited about. Your secondary is a who's who of "who?"

We play you first. I guess we will see soon enough.

They are massive question marks about depth everywhere for every team in May

You also have a mostly new coaching staff.

I'm not sure that's got much to do with anything. ClayBrooks and Stubler are not rookies. I'm not keen on Jarious Jackson, but I'll give him 1 more year with a solid offence to see what he can do

I don't see what an unproven Head Coach and a journey man DC screams instant success for, either.

I've said from the day the Lions went on a FA spending spree... their season will be made or broken by their rookies... They have a ton of top end talent... it's a matter of how well their rookies/bottom end players perform... If they can find a few good rookie gems, no reason they can't compete for 1st in the west along with Calgary and Winnipeg... and Sask (haha, just kidding)...

I wouldn't say a ton of top end talent...I'll give them Burnham and Reilly as top end...Chungh in the top teir...but after that...nothing too spectacular...

Meh, the first 4 games of the season are basically pre season. CFL is such a long road....1st game mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme.

fair enough... I suppose I meant 4 or 5 players... which doesn't necessarily qualify as "a ton"...

It'll be interesting to see Ed Hervey, John Hufnagel figure out how to make their QB salaries fit in a cap that hasn't moved and minimum salaries going up by 10k. Have fun! #CFL

 

yep. good luck!

The problem is that the next batch of FA QBs will want the same deals...  I could see Sask paying big for a QB... or teams will start hiding 'incentives'
