    Is it just me or does anybody else have a bad feeling about this year's free agent signings? Or will O'Day do OK and am I freaking out for nothing?

      Curious to see what JO does. This is his show now....needs to get off to a great start in free agency.

      He also needs to get Willie under contract. He will demand big money and right fully so.

        They are free to sign in the CFL after their season.

            That's good. Although I don't know if any players are willing to do both. Maybe if they can swing a 1-year deal in the CFL unless we open bank for them. Then flip back and forth between the leagues. That's a good way to put a lot of miles on those knees though.

              Riders have been quiet but I think part of that is a certain bigmouth is no longer with the franchise.
              It could be wishful thinking on my part but I am hoping that it's that we don't have guys talking to the media anymore. Of course if it's agents putting out these little tidbits thats not good for us

                Him being an olineman and knowing the importance of keeping a QB upright makes me wonder if we go oline heavy...

                  Hard to do that if you are planning to bid on a big name quarterback.

                    It's way too early to freak out my friend.

                        I too am a little freaked out.... no QB, lots of D power gone to NFL or still unsigned and rumoured to be heading elsewhere.

                        Offensive power is currently zero... canít expect Thigpen to carry a team in his like 13th season of football. Receivers are all rookies, could be some gems - but no proven big names.

                        Need some good signings or we are in trouble fighting for 4th crossover with deadmonton.

                          O'Day's strategy just might be to let all the other teams overpay on imports while he scoops up some good Canadians and budget players. Or maybe he's going after the big fish and we're just not hearing about it. It's early guys!
