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.
