    Here's a real nice Twitter thread from the Cats' play-by-play guy about the concepts that Lapo is running with Streveller. He shows his work with tons of video examples. Great work, wish there was more of this kind of thing in the CFL media. You'll see lots of misdirection, lots of similar looks with different guys carrying the ball. Love the play where they have Andrew Harris be the lead blocker for Streveller out of a shovel pass look. Really showcases the dude as a change-of-pace QB.

    Calgary @ Ottawa

    CFL.ca GAME NOTES - Consecutive ties: In all of CFL history and going back 111 years to 1907, two teams have played to a tie at the same site in consecutive seasons only three times. The current 2016-17 Ottawa vs Calgary situation is even more unique in two other ways: 1) That this has occurred in the OT era which makes ties even rarer (14 times in exactly 2,500 games or .6% of the time) 2) And that for the first time it involves CONSECUTIVE GAMES at the same site  Trevor Harris 300+: Last week, Harris threw for 342 yards and 3 TDs, his second 300+ game of the year and #21 of his career. That means he has gone over 300 yards in 47% of his career starts (21 of 45)  Ottawa Rushing Record/ CFL Pace: William Powell leads the CFL in rushing with 355 yards averaging 118.3 yards per game.  Greg Ellingson #1: Greg Ellingson has been the CFL's reception & receiving yardage leader since the start of the 2015 season  Fastest to 60 QB wins: Bo Levi Mitchell's career winning % is now 59-10-2 .845 with a 3-0 .900 mark in 2018 (first time at 3-0 off the top since 2014). This week Mitchell faces Ottawa who are 1-6-2 against Calgary when he starts.  Calgary 16-0 Off a Bye (10-0 Road): Calgary's record coming off a bye is remarkable and they are 16-0 since 2005. Their last loss after a bye came on Jul 1/05 vs TOR and that was in Wk #2 when they had yet to play that season. Calgary is 10-0 in those post-bye games on the road.  Recent OTT v CGY matchups: Calgary has won the last 2 meetings including a 24-14 win in Wk #3. Since 2014 the REDBLACKS have defeated Calgary once though they have earned two OT ties at TD Place. These ties occurred in the most recent meetings in Ottawa. Ottawa's last win over Calgary was on Jul 24/15 - Calgary in four visits to TD Place are just 1-1-2. - Brad Sinopoli: Posted career-highs of 11 receptions and 15 targets in gaining 148 yards last week in the win over Montreal. His 148 yard total was the 2nd-highest of his career (156 on Jul 22/16 v SSK). 20K / 89.7 Rating BLM: Bo Levi Mitchell (20,221) has surpassed the 20000-yard mark becoming the CFL's 34th QB to do so. He trails #33 David Archer (20,671) who is next up the list 450 yards ahead. He leads the CFL with a 103.9 pass efficiency mark and is #2 with an overall 89.7 CFL Quarterback Rating (right behind Mike Reilly at 89.8). His 13.9 yard average throw depth is #1 in the CFL. - 35/11.7 Pts Allowed: The last time that Calgary allowed fewer than 35 pts in their first 3 games was 47 years ago (9 PA in 1971). Their pace of 11.7 per game is the lowest by any CFL team since the 1964 BC Lions at 10.5. Calgary's club record is 18.5 in 1970. - Field Position Last Meeting: In their game two weeks ago, Calgary started 3 drives deep in Ottawa territory and cashed them all into TDs. The Stamps began drives at the Ottawa 17, 37 and 23 yard lines for 21 of their 24 points. - Sacks Allowed: The Stampeders rank #1 in the CFL allowing just 3 Sacks in 3 games and have a current streak of 17 straight possessions without allowing any at all. They have ranked #1 in the CFL in 4 of the last 5 seasons in Fewest Sacks Allowed. - Leading After Q1: If Calgary gets up after 15:00 they usually win. They are 1-0 in 2018, and 65-12 since 2011 when up after Q1. - 2nd Dn Conversion: Something will have to give in this game as Ottawa is #2 in allowing Opponents to convert at just 40% on 2nd down plays vs Calgary at #2 on Offence (54%). Ottawa also ranks high on Offence at #4 (53%) vs CGY whose defence is #3 (41%). - Combined FG kicking - 16 in a row: Rene Paredes and Lewis Ward are a combined 14-of-15 this year - Paredes has now made 16 straight and 34 of his last 35 tries dating back to Sep 4/17. - Don Jackson 80+: Jackson has at least 80 rushing yds in each game - the last Calgary RB to do that? Jon Cornish Sep 1-13/14. - Michael Wakefield: Recorded two Sacks last week and is one of only three players with at least three Sacks thus far. - Leading After Q1: If Calgary gets up after 15:00 they usually win. They are 1-0 in 2018, and 65-12 since 2011 when up after Q1. - Eric Rogers: Leads the CFL with 3 TD receptions - all of them in the last 2 games in which he has 10 of his 11 catches. - Greg Ellingson 30 straight: Last week extended his consecutive game streak with a reception to 30 games in a row. - Leone & Maver: Have combined for 5 punts where the opposition was forced to start inside their own 10-yard line. CFL Record Performances & Trends in Brief:  Jeremiah Masoli 300+: Has tied the CFL record with 9 consecutive 300-yard passing games matching Sam Etcheverry (1956) and Kent Austin (1991) who each made it to 9 games in a row 62 and 27 years ago.  Long FGs?: In 2018, there have been just 4 field goals attempted from beyond the 50-yard line. Sean Whyte, Lirim Hajrullahu have made from 50+ while Justin Medlock missed from a season-high 59 yards. The tendency to go for 50+ kicks has been falling steadily since 2016 when there were 44 tries from 50+ yards, and only 33 in 2017. The 2018 pace? Just 20 tries from 50+.  Long kick returns?: In 2018, there has been just 14, a pace for only 71 big plays all year. In 2016 there were 107 long returns.  2-&-Outs Up?: In 2018, there have been 9.9 per game compared to just 8.7 last season. Net Offence overall is down by 2%.  Converts at 93%: In 2018, there have been just 4 misses for a 93% mark. The highest % since the distance moved out to 32 yds._____________________________________________________________________________________________

    Yeah looking back about the boasts of the QB depth they had, and how they could flip one to us for a laughable about of talent/picks in return is comical. Not to mention all the claims about the depth across the board at all positions...what a delusional fan base

    Thanks for sharing. Ive been wondering to my self about the bombers using him as DI instead of as a qb. using him in place of flanders in some packages with nichols on the field at the same time. Still the back up qb, but it allows us to get him in more and take nichols out less. Lots of positives and negatives to that.

    i love the restraining zone rather then fair catch. Fair catch and the single makes returning (one of the most exciting plays in football) more frequent and better quality.

    Burke's D thrived on hitting and jamming the receivers 0-15 yards from scrimmage to disrupt passing routes- since the change of no contact on the receiver after 5 yards, I don't think we will see a defense like Swaggerville.

    No. Player files and team chooses 1 or 2 years. Those are the only options. If team files, player chooses. Team can only file on a player one time. Player can file as many times as they are afforded. That is my understanding.

    Nichols was just letting everyone know the great job the Hogs did for him. If he didn't say anything publicly most fans would never know. Wally should worry about the shitty job he is doing as a head coach & former GM. He keeps playing that piece of stink qb Jennings. Plus his backup Travis Lulay still hasn't recovered from his ACL tear from last year. This is the team Wally recruited & signed. He has to live with it. Having said that, the Bombers must stop Burnham & Arceneaux from getting on a roll.

    He played defense, but his coaching specialty is still special teams, so how much he can do by getting involved in defense probably won't be much. As we've said, I don't think anyone here thinks the defense will have all bad games. I also think we've shown we can have winning seasons despite a mediocre D. But that's not the end game. The end game is to raise expectations that the D will stifle Edmonton, Calgary or Saskatchewan's offenses enroute to sweeping the Grey Cup home to the Peg. Bend but don't break doesn't work against them either. It must be constant man to man press coverage glue sticking every down, the way Tim Burke did it here.

    I would buy an unlimited amount of popcorn to watch the circus explode. The saSk Tweet about our QB seems pretty funny right now. Sask is in a world of hurt in the third year of the Chris Jones Era. I mean, We suffered through the Mike Kelly circus and it looked like we were almost gonna go into season 2 until the charges were made by his Ex. one season was bad enough. 3 seasons, maybe a forth seems fitting for Sask.

    Interesting that those are now two of the worst lines in the league... of course they were different when Hardrick was there... but what those teams would give to line him up at tackle right now...

    Durant missed TC and hasn't played meaningful football in ages. While he probably would be the 1QB on the Riders, he'd get absolutely demolished behind that O-line. No way he's in game shape at this point.

    The one thing that always bugged me about that last one was that it looked like the Toronto player who kept the initial kick in play and subsequently kicked it out of the end zone appears to have stepped out of bounds (both feet on the white end line), and should have been flagged for illegal participation. Based on that alone, Montreal should have won the game because the ball would have been dead in the end zone as soon as he picked it up to make the kick.

    Rookie QB for three of the games. two Bombers D lineman in the top four of qb pressures. Bighill now doing what he's good at. and maybe rounding into full Bighill form. (I admit, I did not realize how much Bighill could do, till I saw the game the other day) Masoli probably played one of the best games of his career against the Bombers. He couldn't miss. It's too early to say the D is no good. Not saying Hall is the greatest D assistant in the CFL. I just don't believe O'Shea doesn't know what to do with this defence. It makes no sense.
