Tower Talk: October 7, 2013


After a short hiatus due to things to write about actually happening Tower Talk is making its triumphant return to give you all of your daily links for Toronto type sports things…buckle up!

Maple Leafs

It turns out that Randy Carlyle’s former players aren’t big fans of the guy? Surprising really, he seems to be such a nice level headed guy that would be a good communicator and pleasant to work with. [National Post]

Dave Nonis was held overnight in hospital following a health scare at the Air Canada Centre Saturday night. It was reported he had flu-like symptoms, but is now out of hospital. [680 News]

For the third season in a row the Maple Leafs have come out of the gate flying, which as last season showed us can lead to great things or as two seasons ago, it can just set you up for disappointment. [The Globe & Mail]

Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are set to start Thad Lewis at quarterback in Week 6, which is at least….uhh well he’s not Jeff Tuel! [ESPN]

After an embarrassing special teams performance on Thursday night, the Buffalo Bills have signed old reliable Jeff Moorman to take over punting duties. [Buffalo Rumblings]

A Jairus Byrd trade may be in the works after all. The relationship between player and team has clearly deteriorated to a point where this is the most palatable solution. [ESPN]

Blue Jays

Who do you think was the Blue Jays most pleasant surprise of 2013? Well you can help decide by voting. [Bluebird Banter]

Rajai Davis might not be a Blue Jay for much longer, but he had an interesting contribution this season to say the least. [Jays Journal]

Speaking of reviewing seasons, how about that Edwin Encarnacion! [Bluebird Banter]

Raptors

Dwanye Casey is using the preseason to solve the riddle that is how to use the players he has been given this season, god speed Mr. Casey. [Toronto Star]

Predicting a big season of growth for the Raptors’ great (and only) hope Jonas Valanciunas may not be new, but it certainly doesn’t get old. [Toronto Sun]

Rudy Gay isn’t an efficient basketball player…but that doesn’t necessarily mean he can’t become one. [Raptors Republic]
