Gibson and Burrato Gonzo

Drew Edwards is reporting in the Spec that offensive coordinator Mike Gibson and offensive line coach and serial CFL retread Steve Burrato are gone from the Ticats.

Can't say I'm sorry to see them gone, but going into the season I expected a bit more from the Cats offence. Statwise the offensive results seemed OK, but for me, one thing that was lacking was conversion on third and short. This season there seemed to be a lot of key failures in that situation that cost the Cats games that didn't show up much on the score sheet (OK they show up as turnovers, but players can still rack up good individual stats).

Will Gibson's replacement end up doing better next season? Unlike in previous years, I'm not so sure.
