    He played 1 season

              If he can consistently hang on to the ball, he'll be more than that. He's got all the other tools

                Sure, Shaq is still young , lots of miles left in him yet , Manny is still good , yes , but has had his share of injuries . Hope he can stay healthy

                • This is a good signing if he took a hair cut from last season. Age and coming off a major knee injury to the one that was previously reconstructed does mean there are some questions. We don't need another Williams or Gaydosh sitting for the season.

                  • I would think Manny came at a reasonable price, given his injury history. So, Rosie and Manny for not much more than it cost TO for Derel Walker?

                      I hope he gets the same results too, but Geroy was 38 when he played for us. Manny is 31. As I said before, SJ Green had a torn ACL when he was 31 and the next year in his age 32 season he put up more than 1400 yards. I have far greater expectations for Manny than to provide us with what Geroy did.
                      I am hoping for the same end of season result.

                        Going back to my earlier post about players returning in mid-season I think in both Bagg and Nichols benefited from returning in time to participate in full training camps. Bagg was always there to open the season following his knee surgeries. Nichols tore his ACL in the first exhibition game in 2013 but was back for start of training camp. Unfortunately by that time Reilly had a stranglehold on the starting job. His knee injury in the middle of camp last year kept him sidelined for the first 4 games but it didn't require surgery.

                        I guess I'm a firm believer in how important training camps are be it for players returning from injury or those holding out regardless of sport. It's maybe even more important in this era where practices between games are few and contact is not allowed. It's a lot tougher to get into "game shape" than it ever was before.
                        I think one of the important things for a receiver is getting the timing down and getting in sync with the QB and training camp very much helps with that. In this case Manny is starting out with a new team, offense and quarterback. We shall see how it all pans out.

                          Manny's previous injuries did affect is playing time all that much. Last year was the first that he didn't play a 15 or more games in a season since he has been in the CFL. It is just that he damaged the same knee he did in2014

                          • Manny has good hands. I'm sure he came cheap. If he can get back on the field there is no doubt he can help us. Looking back on last years team. O'Day is looking to keep Collaros healthy by running the ball, Powell. Saving qb's *** and blocking for Powell, Lavoie. Receivers that can actually run the correct route, Manny, Watson. Watson also is a good blocker. The offense was so bad on many levels last year, I think we are going back to a more traditional approach this year and we will have a lot more success doing so.

                              I am hoping that is not the case, LOL.

                              IF these 3 stay healthy.......we will have another great season.

                                Unfortunately, QB's in BC and Sask struggled with health and efficiency. Too simplistic to just blame the OC's.
