Alouettes’ Mike Sherman Notches First CFL Win

Published

on

Former longtime NFL coach and assistant Mike Sherman has notched his first victory as a head coach in CFL, leading the Montreal Alouettes to a victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday.

“I thought our defence really stepped up when they had to step up,” Montreal head coach Mike Sherman said, according to CFL.ca. “They made plays when they had to make plays. We have a very talented secondary with their ability to get hands on balls… it didn’t surprise me that they caught the ball that well.”

The game was a defensive battle back-and-forth that didn’t see a lot of offensive action.

“It was a hard fought game. We lost a lot of guys but it was good to get our first win. It’s always good to get the first win of the season to kind of set it off,” Montreal defensive lineman Jamaal Westerman said. “We did a lot of good things. Some things we didn’t do as good, we got guys getting injured, but we kept battling, we kept fighting. That’s what the CFL is about… I think we did a good job of closing that game out.”

“I think we had a great week of preparation. We really practiced hard, we really worked on our technique.
We really worked on the fundamentals and that carried us throughout the game where at times if things weren’t going right, we fell back on our fundamentals, we fell back on our technique and I think that helped us get that W today,” Westerman said.

Now, Montreal heads to a homegame matchup against the Ottawa Redblacks.

“We have a big game next week against our rivals in Ottawa at home and that’s a big one for us,” said Westerman. “We’ve got to be prepared and get ready because we know they’re coming.”

Argonauts Hire Mike (Pinball) Clemons as General Manager

Published

The Toronto Argonauts are bringing in one of the biggest names in CFL history to replace Jim Popp as their General Manager.

Mike ‘Pinball’ Clemons.

Clemons is a former star for the Argonauts on the field, a former head coach, and a former executive with the franchise, so he has a uniquely deep understanding of the team in a number of areas.

The Argos are in the midst of a terrible 2-12 season, following up a bad 4-14 record from last season, so a big change is long overdue and they feel that Clemons can help bring about the change that they need.

Argos president Bill Manning enlisted Clemons’ help last month in an advisory role and Clemons been vice chair of the team since 2009, saying that he turned down a front-office role with the Argos twice earlier this season before agreeing to the position after Saturday’s game.

“I didn’t need a job, I have a wonderful (charitable) foundation I love,” Clemons said, according to TSN.

“I make a living talking to people. I talk and they pay me. I’m not in this job because I need a job. I’ve got a bunch of jobs. I’m here because I love it and I care about our fan base. We want to make it better.”

Clemons knows that building a roster of the right players will be the key to his success.

“It’s not an I thing. If it’s me, this can’t be done,” Clemons said. “We’re going to build a strong, capable team around us. That’s only way we’re going to have any success.”

With the change, Clemons knows that addressing the quarterback position will be high on his priority list.

“We have to build a strong team, no question about that,” Clemons said. “But ultimately, you can’t disguise the importance of that position.”

Now, Clemons takes on the task of turning around a team that has been stuck in a rut and in need of change for the past few years.

The Calgary Stampeders have signed veteran linebacker Marcus Ball as they prepare to continue their Grey Cup championship defense in the upcoming CFL playoffs, according to TSN’s Matthew Scianitti.

Ball, who hasn’t played this season, signed a non-practice squad deal with the club, so this is not a practice squad deal.

Ball, 32, recorded 44 tackles and one interception over 10 games with the Toronto Argonauts last season and is a former CFL All-Star (2017) and a two-time Grey Cup champion with Toronto (2012, 2017).
