Pretty much. No way Eakins makes a choice at this point. He is going to want to see the dynamics of all the different team situations and then make a decision. He seems lke a very deliberate man.

I think this might be a case of a blogger getting wind of a rumour that is simply speculation and wanting to be the first one to post it.

A new coach is not going to make this decision before camp IMHO even if he does favor a player more than another, which he has not said boo about to my knowledge.

Welcome to Edmonton coach.
