Podskee Wee Wee, Episode 88

On this week’s show, Mike and I discuss the Ticats latest loss to the Riders, including what we thought of the final play call. We also talk about the trade that brought Shamawd Chambers to Hamilton; the return of Andy Fantuz to the field (and some other signings); the release of Brian Tyms and his subsequent signing in Toronto; and the continuing, and seemingly never-ending, saga of Johnny Manziel. We then discuss the major changes the CFL made to its schedule for 2018 and for practices going forward, and the house cleaning in Montreal that saw head coach Jacques Chapdelaine and defensive coordinator Noel Thorpe get shown the door. We then preview Hamilton’s game this Friday in B.C. against the Lions, make our weekly CFL picks and answer three fun listener questions.

  1. I agree about the defence, but most games, they’re on the field way too damn much.
    Down on the one, taking the snap over centre gives the D a lot less time to react, so hand it off, sneak, or three-step drop and throw. All those options are better than the play they used.

    Another thing mystifies me, though; the complete lack of no-huddle offence with Hamilton. The 2nd last Ticat drive of the game took way too long. There’s plenty of clues that Jones is making strategic mistakes, but the lack of a hurry-up is strategy and practise.

  2. I have to think with the improved blocking on the O Line, the production of C.J. Gable and Alex Green, and new play-calling philosophy, that Zach Collaros would be much more comfortable and efficient than earlier this season. Teams didn’t have to respect the run before, and opposing DLs would just pin their ears back and attack. Now they have to respect that the Ticats might actually hand the ball off and blunt their rush to defend the run. Zach will have more opportunity to get the ball off and that could calm his nerves. Add to that Jeremiah Masoli is so maddeningly inconsistent that it’s hard to imagine him being a long-term solution at QB.

    So 2-part question: Do you think Zach Collaros will get another shot at starting, and if so, how short is Jeremiah masoli’s leash?

  3. You guys need to show Cariel Brooks some love. He has been very good since entering the lineup.

    Should Justin Vaughn or Nikita Witlock start over Jason Neil? Neil seems to get pushed around. DT has seemingly gone from a team strength to weakness.

    The Ticats have shifted receivers throughout the season. Should Banks or Saunders start in the slot?

    Sergio Castillo, East division Special teams nominee?
    Larry Dean, East division Defensive player of the year nominee?

    Should the CFL and TSN play more attention to fans out East? Lions Ticats game didnt start till midnight in the martimes and 12:30a.m. in Newfoundland.
