    To use a cap mulligan now would not shine a good light on O'Day and Dickenson. To dump Walsh for a shiny new object in Ray with no formal coaching experience is saying they re-signed Walsh but didn't really think he could do the job in the first place.

        Shivers took on the D Coordinator job, Dickenson obviously the Head coach Job and ODay took on the GM post. If the Riders wanted to add a guy like Ray to the staff they could make it work. Although like others have said he might not be ready for it.
        The 11 spots are filled. Someone would have to be fired to hire someone else.

              My gut feel on Ray is that at this late stage of the offseason if he decides not to play he will be content to take the year to decompress and decide what he wants to do in the future. Coaching? Has he ever expressed that he absolutely wants to coach? Maybe he'd rather get into scouting and player personnel. If he does decide to play I think it's down to Edmonton to be back up to Harris or nothing. The Esks do have a bit of a need. Toronto seems to have moved on and in reality they need to move on.

                  Must be a slow day. So much discussion over an inane idea.

                    Sign him as a player, throw him on the 6 game all year, and there you have it, a player/coach with no cap money used.

                      I'd like to think a player of Ray's stature would have enough self-pride that he wouldn't let himself get used as a pawn in that sort of game.

                        Was somewhat a tongue in cheek comment......

With the same friggen OC here that my way or the highway attitude, a well respected QB like Ray could really help our QB's, not to mention plan B if they finally want to get rid of Macadud. Everybody respects Ricky Ray, and he is obviously a very intelligent QB to put up the numbers and have the longevity he has had. Come on O'Day beat the others to the punch and bring Ray here....that would be a fantastic staff addition. Collaros is already familiar with Ray and maybe just maybe MacaDud will listen to Ray's opinions. I hate not having a good QB coach/ liason.
                          you just described the majority of coaches.

                            Ive never heard of Ray being described as a great mentor to young developing quarterbacks. Glenn....yes!

                              You can only play so many of these bs games. If we do some of this I would rather it be a depth move or keeping more potential development QBs around.

                                Kevin Glenn might fit this definition as well if not better.
