    Fyi it's stupid shitblike this that makes people think you're a troll. Toughness has very little to do with injuries, especially qbs and throwing arms. Dont be a ****.

    **** off. If Fajardo can look like a passer so can Streveler. Fajardo sucks ass as a passer, way inferior to Streveler.

    Holy over reaction batman! It's not about bringing in Glenn to replace Streveler. It's about bringing in a veteran as a backup cause let's be honest the way Streveler runs he could very well get hurt too and then you're left with just a rookie quarterback. There is no way that anyone other than Streveler was going to be the next man up for this team at quarterback.

    The guy has come back from a broken leg (2012), torn ACL (2013) and a non-contact knee injury (2018). He also played through the 2017 playoffs with a broken ring finger and got absolutely walloped on the play that knocked him out of the game yesterday. Since the start of the 2015 season, Mike Reilly has played exactly 1 more game (72 of 90) than Matt Nichols (71 of 90). Our QB may be alot of things, but "soft" as you imply, is not one of them.

    It's my fault. I was single when we last won the cup, got married the July following and we haven't won since. I've told my wife we need a divorce for the sake of the team. She tells me I can't afford it.

    this is such a great play I can't even. Starts off looking good with Couture, Desjarlais, Gray out in front. Couture casually disposes of 31 and keeps rumbling downfield...all credit due to 31, he gets back up and stays in the play. by the end of the play, pretty much the entire offense is out blocking for Lucky. Love seeing these guys move downfield like a damn phalanx Desjarlais does a Paddy Neufeld and plows 32 way out beyond the end of the play ...as the Bombers celebrate, the camera pans past 32, sitting dejected at the 10 yard line...dominance.

    People forget MBT used to be a Bomber. Wouldnt be the worst thing we could do, but for now let’s roll with Strevy. Give him a week where the focus is getting him ready as the starter and I think we are going to see good things.

    Guy threw for 32 tds..4100 yards in senior season..and to this point in his career as a pro running gimmicky crap (other than the 4 he started in 2017) as as raw as you get raw rookie he has thrown for 1216 yards and 12 tds vs 8 int for a 61 percent passer...while rushing for 615 yards and 15 TD's...the guy knows how to score and has shown it He has a year and a half under his belt..in same system with basically the same teammates whom he knows..and who know him...with him now preparing as the guy pretty certain he can run things effectively..not as polished a passer as Nichols and may not at first go through all his progressions like Matt, but his added ability to gain yards with his legs will off set things as long as he is coached not to force things..he..and we will be fine and I bet you see our defense really notch it up now. To be honest speaking as a defensive guy that I was a guy like Strevler gives way more headaches and assignment responsibilities and checks in meetings than Nichols would..you know what you get with Matt..his tendencies.. and his skills/limitations..Strev is a big unknown and that run threat is gonna be huge in teams game plan..especially if he comes out slinging down field

    When I saw the injury I thought "oh no he just got Lulay'd.". I wonder if he'll ever be able to get back to where he was. All the best to him in his rehab/recovery and I'll always be a fan whatever happens and wherever he plays ... No one should ever forget that he was the QB1 who brought the Bombers back to contender status.

    1. Willie J and the Furious 4 2. Harris, the King of the CFL 3. Come Sayles away with me! HH - Hansen - way to make an impact! Extra HH - To Anthony Gaitor who stopped by the bench before the game to hand out signed players cards. Made my son very happy. A great experience all around!

    Lions waste no time.....start on D with 2 PI penalties... Harris runs a couple for 14...out pattern to Lucky at the 10 Harris bobs and weaves to the BC 5... Nichols keeps the ball on a zone option.....fans scratch heads.... ...Matt solves problem by riffling TD pass to Demski on a slant, deep in the endzone... Lankford with long KO return....but Lions nailed for holding... Reilly throws great 25 yd pass to Burnham.... ....but Gaitor tips away 2nd down pass attempt... Nichols play action...then drops in perfect pass to Matthews deep for 50... 2nd down pass hits crossbar or post....Medlock 25 yarder. 10-0 Bomberrs Reilly chucks up shot put ball under pressure....Carter catches it at center field...

Reilly popping some short ones...against Bomber zone D... BC gets an IC call, and passes to Burnham and Carter.... Richardson stops drive....making stop on 2nd and 3. Lions kick the FG For some reason....Nichols out: Streveler in.....who rolls out..... ...and has pass deflected for another sloppy INT... Reilly pressured on 2nd incomplete. BC kicks another FG. 10-6 Blue. Harris takes a 2nd down and long draw...battles past 4 Lions for a FD... Nichols sacked. Medlock 45 yard attempt hits the uprights.... Bombers have left some points out there..... Jake Thomas comes in on stunt and nails Reilly for huge sack... Lankford runs around a bit...before giving up safety.... Bombers had called a time out.....yet decide to take ball, instead of a return.. Plenty of mumbling in the stands about that one. 12-6 Bombers at half.,. Bombers driving for show...but not scoring for dough, so far.... BC starts 2nd half with big flea flicker - couple of Bombers sucked in on Carter throw... White runs though a seam, all the way to the 4. Then pops into end zone on next play The 1-6 Lions are ahead now ...13-12. What the hell? Interesting to see how Blue react.... BC keeps using short kick offs ....but this one not quite short enough.... Grant wiggles and waggles....sideline to middle of field all the way to the BC 25... Nichols has all day to throw but freezes in the pocket and is sacked.... Medlock's 37 yarder makes it 15-13 for the Blue... Reilly throws out to the flat.....Jefferson is out there and leaps up for the pick.... ....and runs it back to the BC 30. Need to cash in on this one.... Nichols screens it to Lucky who cuts in and out...for big first down.... Nichols hits Lawler on hook pattern at the 1. Matt sneaks it in.... 22-13 Reilly sacked by Nevis and Thomas.... Blue overload left side on punt rush....BC misses pickup...... Sayles blows in off the edge....clean block and quick scoop...for the TD Bang...bang. All of a sudden it is 29-15 BC looking like, well....BC.. All time CFL Canadian yards record for Harris announced on the PA.... ....resulting in a very nice standing ovation from the 24,914.... Reilly finally gets off nice pass across the middle....but penalty calls it back... Hansen in at end.....and promptly reaches around and punches ball out from Reilly... 2 runs from Harris, short of the marker.....who proceeds to limp off to his bicycle.... No punt. Medlock comes in for the 54 yard FG attempt.....and puts that through! 20 straight points.....and control of this game for the Bombers... White looks like he has huge gain around the edge...but is tripped up by Bighill... Hansen marches into the Lion backfield to sack MR...but Jefferson offside... Blue show 3 man DL set...but Hecht blows past White to blast Reilly.... Lions salvage 47 yd FG....while Reilly looking very unhappy with his OL... Nichols dawdles rolling out of pocket, takes blindside hit and fumbles.... BC recovers at Blue 25. Dumb turnover #3..... Nichols runs out through tunnel, holding his arm....does not look good... Bighill blitzes....hits Reilly, forces fumble and recovers it. MR really looking pissed. Streveler first series...busted play and an incompletion. Blue O struggling in 2nd half again White running ball hard for the Lions. Sayles hitting hard for the Bombers.... Sayles with another nice tackle....our most aggressive DB, by a mile.... Hanson getting a lot of snaps....and looks pretty physical...... Him and Kongbo are popping the pads pretty good, here... BC moving the ball with short stuff....but eating up gobs of time, down by 16... Reilly connects with sideline pass to Durant to Bomber 33 50/50 ticket flashed on big board....scan numbers eagerly....but the fix is not in... Reilly goes down again...this time at the wingspan of Jefferson... 3rd and 21...Mike chucks long throw to Carter....incomplete Claybrooks decides to challenge this for something or other..... No soap. Turnover. Game officially over. BC sucks. Augustine comes in to do his close out power run thing... 4 straight carries....2 first downs....clock strikes O, for Orange pumpkins... Bombers get job done for my 500th game I got job done with my 500th gin. Give or take a few zeros..

    Nichols Injury

    Streveler hasn’t played a traditional QB role for us yet this year. You’re confusing change of pace gimmick QB for actual QB. He hasn’t been asked to sit in the pocket and go through progressions in a traditional sense, there’s a reason he operates the way he does when he comes in the game. The coaching staff believes Nichols is a better player, why would they bring Streveler in for a different look if they wanted him to play the same way?

    This team is good enough all around to still win with an average QB. As long as Streveler and/or McGuire can play up to that level, I'm not worried at all. And after seeing guys like Arbuckle and Fajardo succeeding I can't see any reason why our guys can't do the same.

    Tell you one thing..our young depth is pretty damn good..and gonna get better. Kongbo is gonna be a beast Willie 2.0..he already is having an impact..Ol Jake better buy him some wobbly pops as his sacks where a direct result of Kongbo's pressures and attention they need to show him..scary part he is just learning this CFL game and his opponents.. and what've better mentor to have the Jefferson. Richardson too..still learning but super disruptive.. Other than the one sack Eli whiffed on when he was on the edge he showed brute power and mean streak on his other reps..and high energy too..guy is gonna be a ass flattener for us. What really shocked me tho was Hansen off the edge..where did that tenacity and over powering skill come from..blew me away..if they keep working him in practice there he can rotate in again in a pinch.. dude was a beast
  31. 6 points
    That is a 3 yr old report..tho some still holds true..but guy can throw.. over 4300 yards in his senior season. He just needs a playbook with more than 5 plays like he has been force fed this year...and the game plan needs to be tailored to him. With his run threat we need to move the pocket..use roll outs and varied misdirection and motion plays...if he is bootlegging and rolling out he will gouge teams big time because the cone up too soon and ge has guys left open..they hand back too long he will get huge gains. A game plan tailored for him...frst team reps all week...good oline and his run ability..he will do ok..as long as he doesnt try to be a hero and run ball controlled offense..he can win Dont try to make him play a style that's not him..thats my one fear with cutesy lapo..his thinking he gonna fool teams.

    It's time to hand the ball to Streveler.

    Yeah give Streveler a game plan with the actual play book and he can do the exact same ball control offence Nichols does. If anything probably a bit more diversified and allowing Harris more space. Lapo has to throw out the trickery and gimmick **** and let the play makers do their thing. With Strev in now..and using multiple motion and misdirection stuff teams wont know what to key on or who to focus on and will open up a lot of options. Teams are gonna start cheating in and then we can hit them with the deep shots down the field. This idea Strevler cant throw is off base..he just needs repetition and plays..with designed routes to actually get the ball to allow him to progress..not the stuff Lapo has him running Lapos stupidly timed change of pace thing there when the offence was humming was the stupidest thing done all year..what he was trying to accomplish other than kill momentum was baffling

    "He doesnt have the tools" - lots of people. He's currently sitting 17th in the league behind just about everyone in terms of pass attempts this season. Give the guy a little rope here... geez! Lots of QBs struggle in their first several games and go on to have great careers! I dont understand the panic.... Nichols was mediocre the bulk of the season so far. To think that isnt replaceable is pretty closed minded!

    Was calling Kongbo Mini Jefferson he is just a smaller version. Jake's first sack was beautiful stunt looked like the ones Doug Brown used to run. Hansen looks like he has taken coaching very well. He had the physical attributes to play but now his knowledge is starting to come around. This really what 2.0 is all about. Getting these first guys in here and having them compete as professionals even if they all don't turn out they are going to back and be able to coach up the kids back in their home countries on what it takes to be a professional.

    in the post game show, MOS was talking about this....said they went to him awhile back and told him that they'd like him to learn how to play End a bit. He apparently is incredibly smart...takes a little bit of information and just gets absolutely everything out of it. Learns very very quickly. It's impressive, to be sure...
