WOW! Completely wrong! Look...
Ron Goetz (best LB the last two seasons, considering the other two last
Darryl Ford (2-time CFL All-Star, and awesome!)
Dan Rasovich (what else can I say? He is great! IMO he is better than
Joe Toth (he's 23, and is better than *any* of the linebackers in the
East already! Plays with real heart!)
Gary Rogers, Randy Srochenski, Travis McDonald
Saskatchewan's LB's are very under-rated/over-looked..Jim Daley (previous
defensive co-ordinator) did an AWESOME job getting these guys good!

Wrong again! Look...
CB1: Dwayne Provo/Ventson Donelson (both could be in the NFL, but would
rather start than be a #2 guy)
CB2: Brian Randall (beat out Albert Brown a long-time vet, that isn't
easy. He is awesome!) or newcomer Alan Grant (28, but more than 4 years
NFL playing experience...not easy to have!)
HB1: Aaron Ruffin/Dale Joseph (these guys speak for themselves! Joseph
had *3* NFL offers, but declined because of his liking for Jim Daley, and
the great contract!) (Ruffin is the BEST nickel back in the league!)
HB2: Terryl Ulmer (has NFL experience, and in his 3 CFL seasons has
proven himself to be a top-notch HB.)
Once again, because of the lack of Roughrider offense, these guys have
been over-worked, but they were still the best in the league. Toronto
will have difficulty believe me. They may have CFL Vets, but the 'Riders
DB's are still better!
>> PK: Saskatchewan
>Oh, please. McCallum is in his first year. Matich is a 40 yard punter.
>Calgary has a great kicking game and Hamilton gets 45 yards a punt and
>great place kicking from Passaglia. Saskatchewan is not even on the same
I did a PK and a PN, I didn't say Matich was the best. Saskatchewan has
the best kicker. McCallum has *proven* he can hit 50 yarders with ease.
Just a note...in the World League (where McCallum plays in the CFL
off-season) he recently hit a 62 yarder!!! with the pressure of it being
in the last second of play. The only competitor here is McLoughlin, but,
he hasn't had many long field-goals, and I see McCallum as being the
