Baltimore Bombers: Mission Control

7 comments

Wed Jun 17 09:14 AM

    4th year flanker Iker Sweeney has been offered a new contract. Sweeney has been holding out demanding more pay, and new management is inclined to give it to him. Rumors are swirling that Sweeney may be moved to split end.

    Linebackers Harper and Page have been released. Conflicts within the locker room are said to be the main reason for their dismissal.

    Defense will operate out of the 4-3, and position changes have been made to facilitate that move. "I like the core group on defense, but the linebacking corp is a bit underwhelming.

    A new kickoff kicker has been offered a contract by Baltimore. Kickoff distance is king for Specials, and our current kicker will be asked to focus on field goals.

    Six year center Jeff Loyd will start for the rest of the season. Blocking Strength remains static at 46, and he gives us the best option at the position.

    Corner back Butch Reynolds has been moved to left corner. Former left corner and secondary leader Fundinger has been moved to right corner.

    Team Cohesion is a problem for the Bombers. Rated sixties across the board, management will have to focus on affinities in the next few seasons.

Second year kickoff specialist Jared Young has been signed. Kickoff Distance of 83/94 with Hang Time at 28/47, and with kickoffs, distance is king. He has the rest of the season to bring his hang time into line. A quick look at the game logs will show that the Bombers kickoff teams have been giving the opponents an average starting position at the 33 yard line.

Season Review

Six and Ten Doesn't Cut It!

Offensively the Bombers just don't have it. "It" being a serviceable quarterback. With the young weapons in the receiving corp and the pretty good young running back operating behind a good, not great, offensive line, a lot of the pieces are there except for the signal caller.

With a sure lock at a top ten pick, Bombers have a shot at a young quarterback. and given the wealth of wideouts, management is thinking of trading one young stud to make a move in the first round.

Defensively we played pass defense well. Run defense, not so much.

Specials were bad. Dead last in kick returns and our field goal kicker was near the bottom of the league.

Attendance continues to rank among the best in the CFL, so kudos to the fans.

Staff changes will be minor in the live staff draft, and we're going into the CFL Rookie draft looking for a quarterback. I mean, it's no secret what we need.

A Look Back at 2042 Rookie Draft

1.27. RDT Ruben Barker, 47/57.
Kansas State
6-1, 290 lbs, Very Low Volatility
Well Liked.

The rookie started all 16 games and picked up 34 tackles, 14 assists, 2 sacks, 6 hurries on quarterback, and forced one fumble.

From a GM's position, I like the kid and think he's got a good future ahead of him. He helps put our Defensive Tackles at a top 10 rating in Roster Strength. His Static Bars in Pass Rush Strength and Punishing Hitter stand at 69 and 86 respectively, with green left in the other four bars. Low Loyalty rating will create some challenges in renegotiations, but I think he's a keeper.

Hoosier's Grade: A

2.18 QB Mario Copeland, 12/26.
Florida State
6-1, 205 lbs, Average Volatility
Need Scorecard

Static Bar in Sense Rush is 48, but he is a bust. If you're drafting for a kick holder in the second round, then you've got it. But man, this guy sucks.

Prognosis: will be cut next season prior to draft.

Hoosier's Grade: F

3.17. LDE Jermaine Hays, 24/30.
Maryland
6-2, 248 lbs, Very Low Vol.
Fan Favorite.

He got some playing time as he started seven games and played in all 16. Stats include 13 tackles, 9 assists, 4 sacks, 6 hurries on qb, and 1 quarterback knock down. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Static Bar in Punishing Hitter and Pass Rush Strength are 38 and 14 respectively, making him a pretty bad pick.

Prognosis: may stay as a backup.

Hoosier's Grade: D

4.19. FB Jacob Lesch, 26/32.
North Carolina State
6-0, 244 lbs, Average Volatility
Recognized

As fullbacks go, he will never be a great blocking back. Run or Pass blocking. Statistically he had 20 Key Run Opportunities and only picked up 4 Key Run Blocks for a 19 percent rating.

Running isn't much better. He carried the ball 8 times for a -1 yard average. Lesch did catch 15 passes out of 20 targets for a 75 percent average and picked up 95 yards.

He did register 5 Special Teams Tackles and forced one fumble.

Prognosis: May stay with team for Specials only. He'll never be our starter at fullback.

Hoosier's Grade: C-

5.18. RCB Marlon Covington, 26/34.
Texas Tech.
5-10, 177 lbs, Very Low Volatility
Fan Favorite

Played in six games and made one special team tackle, didn't defend a single pass, made six tackles and assisted on two.

Prognosis: With a Specials Bar of zero, and his bad bars all around, he'll be cut.

Hoosier's Grade: F

7.19. SS Arnie Lyons, 23/38.
Cal -Poly SLO
6-1, 219 lbs, Very Low Volatility
Recognized.

Pass Coverages and Run D still have green left, but Static Bar in Punishing Hitter is stuck at 20. Specials Bar is a 22/26.

He played in three games, defending zero passes and made one tackle.

Prognosis: Free Agency Looms.

Hoosier's Grade: D-

Bomber's Signal Changes Ahead

Bomber's head coach Matt Willis will not be offered another contract with Baltimore.

Seventeen years in the league with a 30-34 Record and zero championships and three mediocre seasons with Baltimore at 19-27 isn't a glowing endorsement.

Assistant Coach Skip Keefer will not be returning either.

"We need to change Baltimore's expectations and bring in a Championship caliber coaching staff. Live Staff Draft for Baltimore will give us that opportunity to get that corrected."

by Hoosier at Mon Jul 27, 2015 12:41 PM

Left tackle Mark Wallace and the Baltimore Bombers are renegotiating a contract to keep the six year pro on the squad.

"Wallace dramatically improved his pass protection. Last season he allowed 12 sacks. He's cut that to 2 ths year." GM Hoosier

Bombers will need an anchor at that spot should they land a franchise quarterback in the upcoming rookie draft.
