I know we've talked about Cornish, and neither of us like the person, but as a player once again the best Stamp on the field and as he goes the team goes. He's indispensable. We beat Calgary more than we think if he wasn't in the lineup. Its so much easier being a QB in Calgary vs here due to the immediate balanced offense and threat Cornish brings. Time and time again him turning nothing into a 5yd gain, or beating contain for fun outside and making big gainers look routine. This guy is special.
So many questions this year. But as they stated in the telecast the esk have found their answer at the key position and I'm holding onto that. I watched last night mainly for Reilly even though I think he shouldn't be playing. The heart and soul compete of this guy is incredible. I wish he could be an Oiler lol, make him captain, there, done.
Which brings me to Reilly, Stamps, Bowman, Chambers offensively give me hope. A healthy Charles would somewhat. We still need more in the backfield. Miles has looked interesting as well and I think our return game improved with the addition. Also, why was the one look yesterday the first look at this guy as receiver? He looks like a handful one on one and would like to see him get some more reps. I think this guy could give us another threat. Really sharp runner and good cuts. Can fake people out of their sneakers. Took a routine pass and made it 17yds.
Curran, Hill, Samuels looked good yesterday. Willis as well, nice to have Grymes back and we really missed this guy. Sherrit one would think has to be a lot better next year.
I try to have faith that we have a core here to work around and that we will of course improve. But will the club keep the worthwhile players, will they sign the guys that are showing they are part of a competitive core. How could they miss with Curran? If ever theres a defender that will keep playing and keep caring with nothing on the line.
Theres potential champions on this club, and some very good players. important to keep sight on that, team really needs to build around them.
Nice to see Stamps have his 5th excellent season in a row and undisputed king of receivers, Reilly 5th in rushing is interesting, albeit more than I want to see, its been a treat seeng Bowman back. Chambers is going to be special. Look for this guy to breakout.
I would add Sewell, Howard, and Laurent to the things to look forward too list. Hopefully the coaching staff gets turfed this off season and Hervey goes on an exhaustive search for an offensive line and secondary. I don't want any of those guys back...except maybe for Grimes.
Also, I wonder if a Sherritt for an offensive lineman trade is a possibility? I'm really liking Curran...reminds me of Willie Pless with his pursuit to the ball.
John White has impressed me as well. Hope he is back at training camp next year...guy is a baller.
Future looks bright...hopefully Kavis and his sad sack crew are not around to screw it up.
