    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.

    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”.. 😀

    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.

    That doesn't seem to translate into good on-field performances, unfortunately.

    It's clear the reason why the Riders are on this little run, Duron Carter is a ******* cancer and removing him improved the teams fortunes.

    Oh god if we do lose our minds and fire MOS it better not be Lapo again. I have no desire to see a team playing just well enough to lose again.

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

    Perhaps this team should worry first about playing 60 minutes and start with a one game winning streak.

    Comparison: 2017 Ti-Cats / 2018 Bombers

    Taken a little bit out of context.. In breaking down the film, in their meetings, they determine where the ball should be going in reflection of what they see. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the ball gets there, but more that the right read has been identified. As to the QB’s ability to get it there..well, that’s a different matter. I believe that clip was from the Coach’s show, Tuesday, audio vault, CJOB. 7pm

    We now know why Devone Claybrooks was hospitalized:

    As someone said, his health is a concern. He just had a diabetic reaction that was quite serious. Now he has to make adjustments in reaction to that disease which can be very difficult. A coach's life is stressful enough without having to deal with that as well.

    I tried burgers at Jonsey's in East St Paul and Shawarma Khan and both were excellent for Le Burger week. I would recommend both.

    You'd think. But in the CFL that just isn't the case. Mostly because the 1st overall often isn't the most talented. Just the most talented who isn't going south...which often means there is a few years of development a head at best. Though sometimes you get a good one and they play right away. But that's not the norm.

    Nice cherry picking there. Why don't you take his whole body of work in rebuilding our Canadian depth... cuz it doesn't fit your narrative? Walters has done a fantastic job building our cnd depth.

    Obligatory reference to Dave Ritchie's one-rookie-one-loss rule since it was Washington that made the gaffe.

    Yep, all of those guys can run, catch and block. There’s no defense in the league equipped to defend that kind of option attack. Who’s the biggest LB in the league? 235 lbs? Most teams have at least one guy playing in the box who’s 200 or less. Good luck. Plus you still have Adams, Thompkins, Wolitarsky etc downfield, Dressler when he is back. Streveler is a far better passer than most QBs you’d try to run this with so you can have a ton of variety. Hell even if they ran looks like this 20 times a game it would totally **** up every D and their planning. You can basically give Nichols some scaffold to get his mojo back. Lets keep doing the straight drop back passing!

    If we don't, we will be officially in freefall. If we get blown out, there will be bodies swinging from lamp posts.

    I believe the injury Nichols suffered at the beginning of the year is really impacting his play. I also believe he really only trusts Harris, Dressler, and Adams. As soon as Dressler got injured it seems like he's only going to Harris or Adams, and it becomes easy to defend. Same thing happened last year when Dressler went out, then Adams. Also, Nichols can't throw a deep ball, and never has been able to. Put Streveler in and watch him distribute the ball all around. Just look how much more Wolitarsky was involved in the games where Streveler started. I believe Wolitarsky is not being used enough. Nichols is not the same player he was last year, and I'm scared that waiting for him to regain his form is going to put us on the outside looking in come playoff time...

    Yah but you watch Masoli flee the pocket, re-set and find receivers down field. Nichols does not even attempt to do that, once he's out of the pocket he's like a chicken on the run and usually just flings the ball out of bounds. Not saying Nichols is as athletic as Masoli, but right now he doesn't have any composure.
