Top 3 notes
- Will Arndt performed well, and threw for he most yards on the team, has a shot to move up on the QB depth chart.
- John Crockett and Mossis Madu could create the best backfield the CFL has ever seen.
- Diontae Spencer and Greg Ellingson will not be missed. It may only be pre-season, but damn Caleb Holley was on fire. Ryan Lankford who also returns kicks has some reliable hands and has a shot to be a super duper receiver. EXTRA: Lewis Ward is still good, at 3/3 he has already started his streak to 50.
