    Disappointing looking crowd... Esks take 2 penalties on first 2 series.... Nichols has time, but can't pull trigger - sacked.... Medlock's tricky sidewinder punt...pins Moes deep.... Gable doing some tough running.... Long underneath throw, that Matthews jumps up...awarded catch.. ...but Speller holding penalty wipes that out. 2nd and 20..Nichols throws it away, but dump rough call on Esks.. Edmonton takes PI...5th penalty in the first 7 minutes... Good thing Maas cleaned up that stuff from last year....... Demski takes innocent looking sweep play.... ...and bobs and weaves 35 yards with it.... Next play, Esks dig in for Harris...but Demski plunges it in T. Harris converts some first downs...throwing ball well ...then scrambles away, and hits 20 yd pass.... Kyrie Wilson is FAST.....comes downhill like a cannon shot.... Blue pass rush comes alive.....Edm kicks FG. 7-3 Nichols steps back and bombs it out to Whitehead on the stop'n go ....who takes it down the sideline to complete 75 yard touchdown... Bomber kick coverage looking very good..... Nevis gets in a big pop on a screen pass. End of 1st....14-3 Bombers. Lapo gets too cute on 2nd and short....Lucky loses yards on reverse.... Another nice punt from Medlock...another Esks penalty.... Gable slashes on back to back runs for 30, then pounds for another first down. T. Harris hits sideline pass to set up 3rd and 1 at Bomber 35.... Gable takes stupid shotgun hand off....and 3 Bombers stop him cold. Nichols hangs on to ball too long....sacked again. Medlock shanks punt......ball on Bomber 50. T. Harris scrambles for FD, then beats blitz with hot slant to the 12. Roh knocks down 2nd down pass....Moes settle for FG Harris fumbles...Esks get ball at Blue 30... Some Bomber mistakes, beginning to pile up here.... Harris has all day to throw....hits a pass to the Bomber 8 Flat pass to the 3...but Gable dragged down for no gain....

Harris has plenty of time, again...for 20 yard pass... Looks like Fenner is the preferred target for tonight.... Harris finally sacked by Jeffcoat....45 yd FG, last play of half 14-12 Bombers just kinda hanging on here.... 2nd half...good return by Nelson...FD's from Lucky and Harris Nichols goes to Adams long down the middle....obvious PI. ...but no call.. that just has to be challenged. MOS complies.... Yup, PI alright...1st down on the 5. Nichols finds Harris in end zone. Bombers still having trouble wrapping up Gable. Hecht misses tackle on 2nd down Edmonton OG's are holding like crazy...and getting away with it. Esks just keep boning themselves with penalties.... Both teams now really slowing down on O...

Great coming out party for Whitehead... S. Richardson getting held quite a lot....guy is a bull..... Hecht forces fumble with big hit....but the Moes recover... Another nice Medlock punt. Another Esks penalty. Nichols under throws Matthews for a pick...except it is dropped.... Fenner gets PI....his night is just not going well..... Jeffcoat still coming.....sacks Harris....but D holding kills that.... Collins takes short pass....dekes Bighill for good gain.... Bombers amp up pressure on Harris again. White FG again. Esks go into a 3 man rush. Blue O respond with another 2 and out... Mike Miller doing fine work on ST's tonight..... Gable pounds out a couple of first downs...one guy not tackling him.

Alexander misses tackle on Ellington...ball down to Bomber 25... Maas decides to save clock....and kick 7th FG 28-21 1:57 left. Harris loses 4 yards, then Nichols runs 5 and hook slides....

That should do it...Bombers running out the clock...and Harris FUMBLES! Esks get it back at the 50, with 33 seconds left.. Rios knocks down 1st pass. 2nd down pass incomplete... 3rd down play....Fenner all over receiver. Ball incomplete. game now over. Esks O put up some good numbers and great TOP. .... But, like golf....you drive for show...and putt for dough. No TD's. 7 FG's Bomber O put up mediocre numbers.....but hit end zone 4 times... Worse things... than losing the numbers game..and winning football games 2 and 0. But need work closing out games....for the sake of my liver... Fortunately...its all as good as gin.

    Might be adding fuel to the fire here... but just some stats on Nichols vs other QBs after Week 5: 1. Most TD passes in the league (10). 2. His completion accuracy (69.4%) is right around league average (67.9%) 3. He's only thrown 1 interception to-date, the only QBs who have less is Trevor Harris and Nick Arbuckle, Arbuckle also has considerably less playing time, so I'd attribute his low INT total to that. 4. Winnipeg's offense successfully runs the ball... alot! Of our total offensive plays (204), close to half of them (95, 46.57%) have been running plays, which is 1st in the league. We're the only team above.500 that currently successfully does this, the two other teams that are run-heavy are SSK (104 running plays, 228 total offensive plays, 45.61%) and MTL (99 running plays, 213 offensive plays, 46.48%). After that, there is about a 10% drop-off in run-play % with each other team running the ball less than 40% of their offensive plays. 5. Although it is true we have 2nd most 2-and-outs in the league (24), the league average is 19, we're within 1 sigma of the league average, essentially meaning our offense is pretty much middle-of-the road in terms of 2-and-outs. 6. His completion % for deep passes (38.10%) is 3rd-worst in the league, though it should be noted he doesn't shy away from it (21 attempts, league average 21.3 among qualifying QBs). Interesting note here though, Reilly's deep pass completion % is only 28.13%... only QB who is worse is Mitchell (20.00%) though I'd attribute that to him playing hurt. 7. There does not appear to be any correlation between 300+ yard games and team winning percentage (R^2 value = .0872) league-wide, suggesting that this stat is practically irrelevant with respect to wins league-wide, not just for Nichols who is 4-0 with 0 300 yard games. 8. You guys made me late for work.

    GDT: Bombers vs Ottawa

    Predictions: Chris Randle will make a nice breakup on the first drive, followed by Fenner blowing an assignment for a 20+ yard play. This will prompt USABomberFan to make a thread titled “Randle A Big Loss For Us? Hall Not Able To Effectively Manage Talent, He Should Be Gone.” Dom Davis will throw for 300 yards and 5 interceptions, prompting a week long debate about whether or not passing yardage is an indicator of QB ability. Joey will be referring to Whitehead as Rodney Darnell “Lucky” “The Breeze” “Touchdown Machine” “Can’t Be Caught” “Gone Like The Wind” Whitehead by early in the third quarter. O’Shea will get run into on the sidelines and during the fall, his hat will end up crooked which goes unnoticed by him for the remainder of the game, sending Noeller into a fit of rage. Willie Jefferson will have 7 pressures, 4 pass knockdowns and draw 3 holding calls but won’t get a sack, so Ripper will be telling us after the game how Saskatchewan doesn’t miss him at all and we overpaid. Bombers by 40.

    GDT: Bombers vs Ottawa

    It's interesting how this place has changed in the past couple of years. We used to celebrate victories to the point it would almost and i said almost reflect what you might see at RF.com. But without some of the over the top crap that goes on in that place. I can't tell whats changed. Maybe it's a new crop of posters who just can't enjoy the win but must find something negative to counter balance the positive. it reminds me of a boss I had when I was first starting out. He would shake your hand and give you a compliment but slap you across the head with the other. I asked him why one day after some liquid courage and he said he didn't want his people to get too comfortable or feel too safe. At that time I knew that would never be my management style but he felt it was necessary. After a win I choose to dwell on the positive. Even after a 50 - 0 win you could still find a negative or two but whats the benefit to that? With all the **** going on in the world. Sports is what makes us smile and feel good especially after our team wins. I have no problem discussing something that was overwhelmingly bad or a poor decision but to pick on the minutiae of the win. Thats just a waste.

    Well, after two weeks, here we are sitting at 0-2 as many predicted. Once again the other team had more passing yards which is how we measure wins. So crazy that we lost when we had the lead for literally the entire game. It’s really a shame we didn’t spread those TDs out across four quarters instead of two, that also matters. TDs scored on long drives (like we did in game one, mind you) are the ones that really count, dontcha know? It’s almost like we played a team that held their opponent to -2 total offensive yards after the midway point of the second quarter last week. I just wish scoring more points than your opponent, an opponent who right now seems to be one of the top teams in the league, counted for something. Ah well, if only points mattered more than stats. Shame on Nichols for telling Harris to fumble twice! Shame on him for calling a weird sweep on second and short! Shame on him for the o-line opening no holes for Harris and us constantly being stuffed, putting us in second and long! Shame on Nichols not forcing plays when we’re leading on the scoreboard and our punting and defence are playing very well! Considering there’s no salary cap, it’s so odd that we don’t have Mitchell, Reilly, and Harris as our three QBs, not to mention upgrading all of our weakest positions with the top players in the league! Walters is clearly an idiot. No wait, NICHOLS is an idiot for that one too! Phew, almost forgot there. Well, back to the drawing board. See you guys next year, this one is already a write-off.

    Argos at Bombers - Game Day

    Ok let me take a stab at this game... Andrew Harris’ biggest run of the night was at the end of the half when just trying to kill the clock. Take that run away (the game we’re doing by taking Nichols long passes away for god knows what reason) and Harris’ numbers aren’t all that great. Add in Harris’ two fumble game against Edmonton. Ergo, Harris is a steaming pile of Rider crap! Did I do it right? What do I win?? We scored more points in the first half of this game than we have in the entire game of any of our three previous wins (five if you want to include pre-season). We’re 4-0 for the first time in 16 years. We are the only undefeated team in the league. We are the only team that has beaten Edmonton and Ottawa. We find a new way to win every week. Are we perfect? No, of course not. But as it stands, at this point in time, we appear to be closer to “perfect” than any other team in the league. I really wish more people watched all the non-Bomber games, we are far and away the most complete, put together team out there. Let’s also consider that we had Hardrick, Matthews, Whitehead, Bighill, Briggs, Hecht and probably more I’m forgetting out for all or most of the game. Everyone keeps saying “if we let up like that against a good team...”. News flash: We did. Against Edmonton. Guess what? They still didn’t beat us, and we didn’t even put up 48 in that one. So considering that we let up against Edmonton with 28 points and won, it’s fair to say had we done hat with 37 points or 41 points or 48 points... one sec, gotta so a quick calculation...carry the three...deduct anything good Nichols did...ignore anything bad Streveler did... yup, we would’ve still won. Point being: you don’t need to be perfect, you just need to be better than your opponent. So far we’ve been better than all our opponents, fairly convincingly.

    More on Medlock: “The type of ball that I hit at that time is a tough ball to catch, so I felt bad for Lank,” Medlock said of the fourth-quarter punt that Ottawa’s Ryan Lankford allowed him to recover at the three-yard line, leading to Winnipeg’s insurance touchdown. “I knew it was going to curve left. As soon as I saw he wasn’t going to catch the ball, I ran down… there was a hole so I was just going for it. I was kind of upset and, like, ‘Whatever, I’m going for it.’ I didn’t really care.” Medlock, who has a name for all his special punts, says he only used this one a few times all of last season. He says O’Shea and special-teams coach Paul Boudreau give him the green light to call the kick he wants to execute. Rarely does he punt purely for distance. Wpg. Sun 👁‍🗨 It’s what we don’t see Medlock practicing that ends counting big time. Let’s not just take his punting for granted..

    First thing first...a sign of a good team is when you still win parts of team playing sub par...which we did...Offence seemed to be out of sync all game save for some great individual plays by some guys. Not very often Harris fumbles and loses the ball twice in a game, let alone twice in a year. Not sure whats up with Fenner, is it scheme or is it ability but he is better than that, that being said I see why we kept Rios around and not too worried about defense as a whole, they are needing some gel time and the d-line hasn't revved up yet but allowing only what..1 offensive T.D in 2 games against Reilly and Harris while not firing on all cylinders makes you just be giddy thinking of what they will do when they are firing on all cylinders. Jefferson though no fancy stats yet is a disruptive force and what he does out there, and attention he draws allows others to make plays...also he is seeing a lot of doubles and line play schemed to take him out of making big time plays...but either way it still benefits the defense as a whole. And as Mike mentioned...it's not about luck making the stops..I'll take a game plan all day allowing a team to move the ball between the 20's but if they can't score TD's thats a win. Oliviera is done for a while, it was either a bad dislocation or break of his ankle/leg as when he rolled out of the pile up it was twisted and pointing the wrong way..but we are in good shape as we have Augustine chomping at the bit, and I think right now he brings even more anyway, but sucks to lose Oliviera The o-line I think has basically solidified that they are no longer a concern and are going to be at the worst a very good line, quite possibly one of best..again once they get more games under their belts. Lucky..what can you say...get ball i his hands and give him a sliver of a seam, or any space at all and he is gonna be a threat to take it to the house at any time, and from anywhere on the field..this games was huge as teams have taken notice now and he is going to have attention on him now which will only open up space for the rest...Also even tough Nichols played a very up and down game, but the offence as whole did too...I'll still take his 3 td vs 1or zero Int and 180 to 230 yard performance when it just keeps accounting for wins

    👁‍🗨S p r e a d I n g the ball around. This is how I like an offence. Use all your receivers along with the strong running game. So far, veteran wide receiver Darvin Adams has been targeted 13 times and has eight catches. Meanwhile, newcomer Lucky Whitehead has been targeted 13 times for nine, Nic Demski 14 for nine, Drew Wolitarsky 12 for 9 and the combination of Chris Matthews, Kenny Lawler and Charles Nelson 11 for eight. The team leader in both categories is actually running back Andrew Harris, who has been targeted 15 times for 13 catches. - Ted Wyman

    Bob Irving (@BobIrvingCJOB) Tweeted: I think the CFL should fine players for dangerous, cheap hits. But Wpg’s Jermarkus Hardrick got fined for giving a guy an extra, aggressive shove in the Ottawa game. Hardly a fineable offence in my eyes. The 15-yard penalty Hardrick got was punishment enough.

    Some Interesting stats. Of the 5 league leaders in ST tackles, 3 are bombers. Medlock has the 2nd most kick off and punt yards. Fenner is our only player in the top 10 for tackles. And he is in a 5 way tie for 5th. Our DL has 6 sacks, charleston hughes has 5 and leonard has 4. In 4 games streveler has 5 tds, and lucky has 3. Harris has 2 tds through the air this year, and none on the ground yet. Nichols is averaging 1 td for every 9.8 pass attempts. Mike reilly is averaging a td for every 33.6 pass attempts (and is tied for 4th in the league in td passes) Our D is extremely balanced, with pressure and tackles coming from all over the field. Our sts has been scary good in every facet this year. And our offense is extremely explosive. With virtually every one scoring, and yet still not healthy or firing on all cylinders.

    GDT: Edmonton @ Winnipeg June 27, 2019

    IT’S GAME DAY! Bye,bye bye..👋 Matt Nichols is excited I would think..- Matt Nichols is 4-2 as a starter for Winnipeg against Edmonton - 3 of his best 10 CFL games have come against Edmonton including his career high of 390 yards (Aug 17/17: 40-32-390-0-1). He has games of 390, 330, 320 & 300 yds vs Edmonton. Pressure’s on for....Fenner and Rose. Hope the Bombers have a great game plan on defence. Remarkable. Goes to show you......7 of the last 9 EDM-WPG games have not been decided until the final 3:00. Scoring First Matters. Edmonton is 11-5 when scoring first since 2017 and Winnipeg is 17-5. Chris Streveler started at QB for Winnipeg in 2018 - Matt Nichols started only the 30-3 win on Sep 29th. I hope they keep this stat going...Winnipeg has gone 5-0 when coming off a bye over the last two years as they will be this week. Andrew Harris' 148 rushing yards in Week #1 was the 3rd-highest game of his career and most ever in a season opener.… The last Edmonton QB before Mike Reilly to start vs Winnipeg? By coincidence - Matt Nichols in 2015, the projected Bombers starter in this game. (Reilly has started 13 of the last 14 matchups vs Winnipeg) The Bombers did not commit a Turnover at BC and forced 3 by the Lions (2 INTs and one on downs). Their 2-point defensive convert tied the game but for the record is not counted as a T/O since no new series of downs occurs. But it scored points! The 2-point defensive convert by Chandler Fenner was the first in the CFL since 2017 (2 that year, Courtney Stephen and Duron also on blocked 1-point converts similar to Fenner's). Trevor Harris is 2-2 career vs Winnipeg, 1-0 for Toronto vs the Bombers and 1-2 for Ottawa. Conversely, NONE of Harris' Top 14 career performance have come against the Blue Bombers. Cut the Gable! - C.J. Gable has the entire CFL in rushing in each of Week #1 and Week #2. He now has a career-best 3 straight 100-yard games. - The Esks lead the CFL in BOTH Net Offence and Net Defence averaging 508 yards for and just 221 yards against thus far. - This game features the Club with the MOST TDs on Offence (EDM with 8) vs the team allowing the LEAST (WPG with just 1 against). The last QB to throw 6 TD passes in the first games of the season before Harris? Chris Streveler last season. Last week vs BC, Edmonton scored on 4 straight possessions driving 71, 59, 75 and 75 yards for scores generating 17 first downs. - Trevor Harris has led the Esks to a 2nd down conversion rate of 64%, #1 in the CFL through Week #2. Eskimos surrendered 165 yards on 14 penalties last game. Key for Winnipeg - discipline. Let the ‘Schmoes lose yardage en Maas (sic) with undisciplined play. GO BLUE!

    I don't wanna get too cocky and chirp too much because I'm a big believer in karma, but man, what I wouldn't give for us to be the new "unbeatable" Stamps, and for the Riders to be a totally shitbag all year...

    I think we're all missing the point, the Saskatchewan RoughRiders are 0-2 on the season and in last place.

    I left Rogers two years ago and they still send me a statement every month showing that I have a $20 credit. I asked them to just send me a cheque and they said that the credit is only transferable to another Rogers account. So instead I just let them waste money on postage every month sending me the statement.

    It can’t get worse than that. Argos and Riders are like, hold my beer.

    Please not Nelson. Lawler or Bailey are more deserving after the poor showing by Nelson last game.

    The cause of the Riders website being down all the time has finally been determined. . . . They can't string three W's together.

    Darrin Bauming, TSN. @DarrinBauming John Santiago arrived back in Winnipeg today. The running back out of @UNDFootball was a cut out of #Bombers training camp. Let’s see if Winnipeg re-signs him in the wake of his college teammate Brady Oliveira undergoing ankle surgery. 12:22 PM · Jul 2, 2019 · Echofon

    Next Up ... Edmonton here

    With all their weapons available. I'm looking forward to playing a Mike Reilley-less Shmo team with the anger-issues coach. Disclaimer: Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. No animals were harmed during the editing of this post.
