  1. I can easily see Calgary going 0-3. A rookie QB against a team that showed very well last week.... how can you not see them losing. It would be more of a surprise if O'Connor lights it up and wins the game.

    Darvin

    Edwards did not disappear for long stretches of time as Darvin has with us. But both guys were totally different types of receivers so it's not really an apples to apples comparison. Either way Darvin on the field is an improvement.

  3. Nelson stutter-steps himself into getting tackled. He never goes. The best returners just go.

  4. A microcosm of the return game was when there were 4 Argonauts in front of Nelson with zero Bombers to block for him. I wouldn't be putting it all on Nelson. I think we still have some work to do in our blocking.

  5. Imagine being such a bad QB that the doctor's just like "Nah man, it ain't broken or anything, you just suck. Maybe try using the other arm?"

    Infuriating. We have a few posters here who have similar go to's on a wide array of subjects doused with their bravado and 'you're stupid if you can't see this' vibe.

    Edwards was better than Darvin, Imo.... But not by a ton. Edwards was Mini Milt....

    Covid-19

    I think it will be some time before we understand the full ramifications of long Covid. And yes, it is a real thing. Vaccinated people aren't 100% immune from catching Covid. That has never been advertised. This likely depends on a lot of of factors, but it has been shown that people at most risk of severe Covid ramifications are those with comorbidities. This is very true for people who are worst affected by Covid whether vaccinated or not. Full disclosure that is pure speculation on who is likely still affected. Covid isn't going anywhere. Especially with new strains coming out. We need to figure out how to live with it as a society. At this point, with where we are at and how widely it has spread, I don't expect Covid is going to be completely irradiated any time soon.

    I see the comparison but I'd take a prime Edwards over a prime Adams,or can't we just have both of them in their prime right now??!?!!

    Masks have been mandated by our school division (Lord Selkirk). At least until the end of September.

    Louis Riel is the first school division to step up! I would never expect Pembina Trails to be a leader, with the current superintendent and leadership, but hopefully they will follow.

  17. He isn't really a North South guy though. Not this year. This. I had high hopes for him but he's been soo indecisive and un effective. With Grant out the loss of lucky stings twice as much.

  21. Because he was flat footed after catching the ball. I rewatched today and he was constantly tentative with the ball. When he had blocks he wasn't decisive and that led to blockers running out of time. Idk he was flat and shaking left and right constantly. He ran up the middle mostly save for the one he broke. But even including the 30 ish yard big return he's been sub average.

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/conservative-gst-holiday-response-1.6143915 What is with these policies that they are coming up with? First, a carbon plan that gives you a savings account for polluting purchases and now a GST holiday for December? They do realize that there are supply shortages already, right? They do realize that this will disincentivize people to make any purchases until December, right? They do realize how frustrating it will be for businesses to change their taxation for just one month, right? When you have the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses criticizing it and calling it gimicky, then you really have to wonder how they are coming up with policy. I do like their pledge to add tariffs to countries with high carbon output, but I'd imagine there would be tons of exceptions from industries that are reliant on cheap Chinese goods.

    Darvin

    Adams worked a full practice with the offense. Which is a great sign. I suspect he may rotate in place of knight. Not full starter reps I think they'll ease him into it. He's missed a lot of reps and conditioning. Getting Darvin back and moving him into wolis wide out spot and moving woli to sb would be huge. Harris took offensive reps for the first time in weeks today. Yesterday he took 1 on 1 reps. Harris I think would be a ld or bjb return If all goes well.

    Leave without pay until most of the kids are vaccinated. Bring them back when most of the children are fully vaxxed.... You want you're freedumb? sure, but not at the cost of the children's health.

    Is he ready? I saw his presser on bluebombers.com and I have a sneaky feeling he'll be in the lineup this week. We need his big play ability to help out the running game a bit, speaking of that, any word on #33?

    Darvin

    Darvin is a perfect no2 wr in this era. And right now that's what he is with Lawler being the man. The big difference between Darvin and a lot of guys is he doesn't drop a lot of passes and is one of the best blocking wrs in the league. Other wise he'd be like Chris brazzell or the none elite years of bowman. He disappears at times but it's not like he has 2 3 4 bad drops in a game. And he never lets up. With Lawler being the go to adams can be our homerun hitter. Lawler adams woli and demski is as good a 4 man crew as it gets.

    I'm so glad someone said something. I hear a lot about "the extreme left" in Rural AB (...even the premier has talked about it...) and I always wondered what exactly that was. The thing about the extreme right is that it's based around hate. The extreme left is more about love of environment than anything.

  32. Nelson is decent at getting 7-8 yards where it looks like he might get 2-3, but he is not as aggressive at hitting the holes as Grant. But he doesn’t dance around a lot and lose yards trying to break one outside, so that is a positive. As for the ball security, he did bobble one catch but got it back quickly enough. However, Grant has not fumbled away any kick or punt returns in his time here either, so he is no less secure and is more of a threat. Nelson is serviceable but at this point is not stealing that starting job any time soon once Grant is healthy.

    Looks like all of the post secondary institutions will require mandatory vaccination for staff and students. Wonder if this means mandatory vaccination for staff at schools? For the record, I am in favour of staff at schools being vaccinated.

    Darvin

    Edwards was apart of the last monster wr core we had with Armstrong and milt. If any thing he had better wrs around him. He was also here when Fred Reid was destroying the league. Te was an elite wr in the cfl for years. Maybe the whole league in 2010. Darvin has been a fringe Allstar twice. Tes first year here is still better than Darvins best too.

  36. I would agree with this normally, but CGY just isn't the same CGY. That Oline is gonna get chewed up, O'Connor better have his running shoes on because with the lack of run game, Usher is gonna be let loose. Mtl basically just needs to stop Jordan and they'll be fine.

  37. The BC defence that rolled over in the first half vs? Saskatchewan? No the defence of the argos is far more impressive. Picking off a broken legged bo Levi Mitchell 4 times doesn't do much for me. Reilly better than the argos qbs? Sure but I like the rest of the argos better.

    So... Desantis opens up florida completely, -bans any sort of mandate for masks, -punishes school districts who wan to protect unvaxed kids -Gets $5mil from regeneron who makes an monoclonal cocktail to TREAT covid. -Desantis does pressers to push for the use of regenron... -Regenron in turn have their shares go from $449 to $647 per share... ~44% increase in share value in 4 months. How is this not criminal? it looks like Desantis got paid to force everyone to get covid and then HAVE to go for treatment in turn making regeneron a **** ton of money. ******* Florida...

    Saw a Twitter post from an ICU nurse. She asks the COVID patients why they didn’t take the vaccine. When they respond “because we don’t know what is in it so we can’t be sure it’s safe” she replies “I’ve given you 5 injections today while I’ve been treating you, and you haven’t asked once what was in what I was giving you and took it gratefully”.
