    Regular Season Bomber News

    For those that were questioning our drafting, the amount of play we’ve gotten out of 2019 draft picks has been incredible. Drew Desjarlais came in for much of the last game after Speller’s injury, Hallet forced and recovered a fumble, Kongbo has come as advertised and Exhumé heads the league in special teams tackles. Had Oliveira not been injured I imagine we’d have seen a thing or two from him as well st this point. Looking good!

    Who was questioning the Bombers’ drafting? The distinct majority of people said the Bombers had the best draft of anyone this year.

    BC defence has played well, they have a new MLB but I don't know who he is as Black has not once mentioned his name.

    On the topic of the time when Nichols replaced Drew Willy, I was inspired to look back to 2016 to the period immediately after the QB change. The Bombers started 1-4 with Drew Willy and then went on a seven game winning streak when Nichols came in but that hardly tells the entire story. Can't help but wonder how different things would be today at the QB position had that seven game streak, which undoubtedly (and rightfully so) entrenched Nichols as the long term starter for this team gone a bit differently. For one, Willy's numbers were surprisingly not that bad during the 1-4 start. Yes, I remember him being shellshocked and checking down a lot but doesn't that all sound familiar? It didn't help that of those four losses, two were against Calgary and one was against Edmonton. He still only turned the ball over four times in five games and was legitimately great in the win over Hamilton and the loss to Calgary. I agree that a change needed to be made and running Willy out of town was clearly not a mistake, but I guess the point of this all is that Nichols' play right now isn't really any worse than end stage Willy. It's the circumstances surrounding the rest of the team that are vastly different. Nichols comes in that season and the Bombers immediately go on a seven game winning streak. However, the best team BY FAR they beat in that stretch was an Eskimos team that finished 10-8. The other wins were two against the one-win Riders, one against the 7-11 Als and two against the 5-13 Argos (who had Logan Kilgore and Dan Lefevour as their starting QB in those two games). Yes, none of those are automatic wins but talk about favourable circumstances! The even crazier thing is, there was a three game stretch where the Bomber defence forced a combined 16(!) turnovers. It's nearly impossible to lose when you force five turnovers in a game, regardless of what your offence does. Nichols' average stats in that seven game streak? About 260 yards passing and one touchdown per game. Granted he didn't have to do much and wasn't turning the ball over, but his numbers were actually worse than Willy's against significantly weaker competition. And yes, many people will say the numbers don't matter as long as the team is winning and they weren't wining with Willy and they were with Nichols. I just find the circumstances around the QB change and the corresponding records very interesting and can't help but figure that going into that extremely easy stretch of the 2016 season had Willy not been benched at that exact moment, the team probably has a similar record and then where would things be at today? Likely neither Willy or Nichols are the QB for this team.

    NFL is a good development league for the CFL. We got Bighill from that league. If he's lucky, he'll catch on again with CFL team. Good luck Bryant!

    It's time to hand the ball to Streveler.

    Bowman didn't even try. I was so jacked when we signed him but he wouldn't even run the routes. He was done.

    Dressler was pretty good for us and when he wasn’t, it was because he was old and broken. Bowman was done before he set foot on the field for the Bombers last year. Matthews is an interesting one but he hardly set the world on fire in Calgary last year.

    Don't look now, but Mike Reilly and the B.C. Lions might be back in the running. It looks like they will not be the free stop on the Bingo card anymore. The Bombers better bring their A game next Thursday and play 4 quarters.

    I'd have to look at the statistics but Streveler was far more involved at the end of the season last year then he has been all season this year. He platooned in during both playoff games.

    I don't think anyone is calling for LaPo to be replaced mid season by Pierce or anyone else. Where did you get that idea?

    Time for LaPo to go & let Pierce step up. Only problem I see is he'll stick with LaPo's system so will things change that much?

    Dave Dickenson: 1 year as a running backs coach, 1 year as a receivers coach and then year 3 he was promoted to OC. Jason Maas: pretty good OC/crappy head coach. 3 years as a QB coach and then year 4 he was the OC in Ottawa. Buck pierce: 2 years as a running back coach, currently in year 4 as a QB coach.

    I didn’t vote but you asked so I thought I’d throw out a couple of names. Ive been a strong proponent of moving buck pierce up the food chain. He always was a cerebral QB who spent hours watching game film. I’ve always thought former QB’s make the best OC’s. The other is Ryan dinwiddie in Calgary. He has the title of OC but dickenson still calls the plays. If he wants to move up he’s going to have to prove he can be a true OC. Dickenson speaks very highly of him and often speaks with him during the game to discuss up coming plays and strategy. Those are two that come to mind.

    Sure, they have a problem closing out games, but is the solution really to blow up the entire offense by either jettisoning LaPo or Nichols or as some on here would argue, both? From everyone calling for LaPo's head, I've yet to hear of a suggestion for a replacement OC. Or maybe they think we'd be better off without an OC at all?

    8 offensive plays in a quarter holding a lead is ridiculous. Bombers offensive problems are consistency. They can score 3 TD's in one half and do absolutely nothing in the next half, entire quarters without a first down. This is not a new issue and in the end it affects them in the games against teams of their calibre. Big plays are nice in all 3 phases but they tend to dry up when the competition gets better. Need consistent ability to drive, grab 3-4 first downs most times offense hits the field. Do that with good D and special teams and we'll score 25-30 every week, close out games and win most of them.

    6 and 2 yup. If Nichols could close a game it would be 7 1. 6 and 2 is great but u got 3 teams now at 5 and 3 also. 7 and 1 gives you cushioning. 6 2 and a loss next week means likely tied for 1st. The QB play is inconsistent. It needs to improve. Our o has talent, our QB needs to be better. 6 and 2 yup but with average quarterbacking not ridiculous fancy stats like passer rating... 8 and 0. Both games we lost because our QB sucked.

    The problem is we don’t know this (despite some people claiming otherwise)... it’s easy to lay “blame” when you know the play call... if check down is actually the second read then LaPo is to blame but if Nichols is making one look then checking down, it’s Matt’s fault...

    He clearly isn't calling the dink and dunk offense. If it were all dink and dunk the ball would be coming out of his hand quickly. Most definitely the Harris check downs is the 3rd - 4th option. He just goes to it because either the opposition have the greatest coverage or because lack of confidence/ doesn't want to hurt his stats.
