    I'm not sold on Claybrooks. Yes, he has a great defense in Calgary but he's been blesses having great players to coach & who know the system. I also think he isn't experienced enough. is this his third year as a DC? The guy I like is Orlando Steinhauer. A successful DC (in the past) who knows the league as a player & a coach. Coached as a DC in the NCAA & did well in the only year he did in 2017. He was ready 3 years ago to be a CFL HC & I'd love to see him here. I think his upside is far higher than O'Shea.

    This Op-Ed in the NY Times has certainly existed a great deal of wild speculation. Investigations, lie detectors, and a lot of brave people insisting that they are not Spartacus. Having a great deal of practical experience with whodunits - have consulted my advanced tools, to help shed some light on this. I have now narrowed it down to a number of prime suspects: Colonel Mustard (Kelly) Mr. Green (Pence) Major Plum (Mattis) Miss Scarlet (Hicks) Professor Peacock (Pompeo) Mrs. White (Conway) Miss Peacock (Ivanka)

    its on the Bomber app, press conference from Wednesday..... where he says Nichols is making the right throws and has been accurate and is grading very well. That's where I have serious problems with his assessment of good QB play. To say he doesn't see a drop off in his play from last year is just unfathomable.

    “Because our coach is an idiot.“ Eternal Optimist (poster - previous post) It’s funny you should say that. After the practice today, in the post practice question period, Coach O’Shea said “I guess you can call me an Eternal Optimist”.. 😀

    Sask game alone: 3 minutes looking Completed Pass to K. THOMPKINS, 31 yards TD Completed Pass to N. DEMSKI, 16 yds Completed Pass to D. ADAMS, caught at S48 (18 yds) before the LaFrance fumble. These were all good throws You wouldn’t have to look hard to find other examples. To deny he has made some good throws to support your theories doesn’t back up the facts. Look nobody's denying Nichols has to step up his game, but in the completions he has made, some of them are pretty good.

    Yeah but mike Kelly was OC back then too right? Hell we had that huge rushing game with Kelly in 09 vs. Bc but the guy was still clueless on team building and did damage to the team that is only now being repaired.

    Lapo was asked point blank about tossing Streveler in for a series when Nichols struggles. His response “we don’t do that.” They also don’t beat teams over .500, so maybe time to rethink what we are doing.

    I agree but I wouldn't quibble on Claybrooks. All that NFL experience and then the time spent as a player and DC under Hufnagel in Calgary makes for some pretty good credentials. Certainly far better than what we got with O'Shea.

    Lapo won’t be head coach. If, HUGE IF, Lapo is head coach no credible CFL OC would come here.

    Wentz was a first round draft pick. Second in the draft. He's also playing the same game he played in college. Not Canadian football. So, less of a learning curve to a different size field, rules, motion & 3 downs. I like Streveler but bring him along slowly. Having said that, not this slowly. O'Shea's refusal to give him just a little playing time is baffling. Which is typical O'Shea par for the course stupid & why he needs to go. Yesterday. His act is wearing thin.

    Again, not true. You’re just not giving credit where credit is due. Nichols has had good games. He’s had good throws in every game.to go along with the bad. That’s where the ‘consistency’ comes in.

    Simply not true. He can zip it in there when he has to. He’s fired it into tight spots before. It’s the consistency we’re looking for.

    he doesn't even seem to have enough zip on the ball to get the intermediate routes into tight spots.... that's a big part of the problem with his game right now.

    Streveler and Bennett showed plenty, while Ross was very Brink-ish in his few opportunities. Little surprise here.

    I’m torn on Barker. Has had CFL success. But also the guy who traded an all star DB and the first overall pick (yes, I know Faith was a bust, but it’s a high value pick nonetheless), for Drew Willy. I’m in the Walters has done enough to retain his job camp.

    The coaching staff is suspect, and I would exempt LaPolice from that. I do not know how you can blame an OC for the lame play of his QB and the probable reluctance of the HC to allow a backup to spell off a struggling starting QB. Walters has done enough good stuff to warrant a reprieve, but if he continues to back O'Shea, his fate would also be sealed.

    School Zones

    I agree with most of what you're saying, especially about after school hours. But yes, there had been some issues with kids being hit by cars. I guess if you don't know, then you don't know. I shared one in a post further up. Enforcement by police and better education both cost extra money - which is exactly why neither of them will happen Budgets and the almighty buck always come before better ways of doing things. I was happy to see this change, because I knew it was the only change we were going to see. And yes, I have been ticketed in one of those 30 km/h zones. I was going to another school for Professional Development, there were no kids in class all across the province on that day. It sucked, but that's life, and it only happened once.

    I don't want Lapo as HC. To be honest, I think MOS lasts until next season and Lapo may be the HC for BC next year.

    What Collaros is or is not not is moot. The Riders and 4 and 0 in their last four games and the Bombers are not. That is all that counts, right? Should the Bombers lose on Saturday, it will be all hands to panic stations and more than one career will be in jeopardy.

    basically what you're saying is that Streveler has hit his peak, and isn't going to get any better with experience. That you Coach O'Shea??

    Burris used to make those throws. Some got picked, but he definitely made them.

    OK but I will judge receivers who drop passes that hit them squarely in the hands on 2nd downs (Thompkins and Adams on Labour Day, Washington volleyed up the first INT too, who knows what happens if he either knocked it down or just let it do by) So you can go ahead and keep pinning it all on Nichols but his receivers ain't helping him. How about the play where Nichols rolled out of the pocket to escape pressure and none of his receivers could get open for him and he had to throw the ball away? How about all the times the pressure came and there were no options for Nichols? Either Lapo has no plays called for that (unlikely much as I think Lapo is a ***** sometimes) or the receivers aren't getting open for the qb.
