  1. Hi Guys: I enjoy your podcasts. Wanted to clarify who designed the run-and-shoot offence and made it famous. Darrell ‘Mouse’ Davis, who was an offensive co-ordinator under coach Bob O’Billovich in Toronto in the early 80s, is the man. At Portland State, he made stars out of QBs Neil Lomax and June Jones using this pass-first offence. He brought it to teams at every level from college to NFL, CFL and USFL. The Argos had great success with it, going to the Grey Cup two years in a row and winning it in 1983, although that year Jones had left to become a head coach somewhere else, I believe in the new USFL with the Houston Gamblers where he designed it for QB Jim Kelly. June Jones may have been a disciple of the run and shoot but it was Davis who brought it to all levels of football. Incidentally, Davis based his offence on a book by high school coach Glenn Ellison who wrote Run and Shoot Football: Offense of the Future, according to Wikipedia.

  2. Correction on my own post: I meant to state that Darrel Davis left the Argos in 1983 to become coach of the Houston Gamblers in the USFL, but said Jones by mistake.

  3. Ticats have signed Tony Washington

  4. Tiger Cats have signed Tony Washington

  5. Great show as always…guys.
    I as well believe the Cats have a great chance to turn this season around in the next
    3 games….all are winnable for the Cats.
    As far as Ottawa goes…
    They are in bad shape, they are not playing like the defending Grey Cup Champs.
    The losses will continue for them.
    Sorry Ottawa fans.

  6. Hi guys,

    What is the minimum number of wins Kent Austin needs to keep his job?

    With just over one third of the season over, who are your MOP, MOC, MODP and MOSTP?

    How many wins does the second place finisher have this season in the East? Does second in the West have twice as many wins?

    How long before Ed Hervey replaces Eric Tillman as GM?

    What unmentioned loss was bigger for the Ticats over the past few years, losing the OL to the NCAA before last season or scout Danny McManus to Winnipeg? Or someone else I’m forgetting about.

    Should the Ticats consider more 4-2-6 defensive looks with Butler and Stephen at safety?

    Do you believe the Ticats issues are more talent based or system/coaching based?

  8. To better balance the divisions, should the CFL move Winnipeg back to the East and have only 4 teams in the west?

    When is the CFL going to get the Grey Cup halftime show right and get The Rock to perform? No one can possible complain then. He checks the Canadian box (his father), and his Wikipedia page contains six songs, perfect amount for a halftime show! Lets not forget he is a former player too. Perfect choice.

    In all seriousness, Shiana Twain is a great choice, why is there always such backlash to the Grey Cup halftime performer?
