  1. Look at all the Rider games and the DLine offsides they get...it's astonishing...that..and all the selfish undisciplined play/penalties...that's a poorly coached team ..inmates running the asylum there. On a different Note...the tsn panel... particularly Barker (whom I like btw,) either just can't/don't want to give the Bombers credit...or just catering to whiney Rider fsnbase with comments about the Riders having to deal with injuries..etc ..and that the results were inevitable and the wins were not truly indicative. Let me think...we missed a starting running back for 3 games...starting reciever (Adams) for 3...lost run stopping DT in first game...Started season without our Will... He still out..missed Demski for 2... Jefferson knicked for first 3...lost our starting Sam in TC and then his replacement in in game 1. Lost the Will replacemt in game 1. Have started 2 raw rookies in secondary...hmmmm....lost our returner in game one....had to replace Medlock...and we are....oh yes 5-1 It's called depth ..good coaching and a kick ass team culture in the dressing room.

  8. I feel like we should have a thread to talk about certain memories, players and moments in Bombers history. Inspired by my Charles Roberts thread it opened the floodgates thinking of moment during my life time. Anyways I’ll go first.. does anyone remember this game? Bombers down 32-14 with 9 minutes left in the fourth. Alex Brinks gets the start and does nothing all game long. Jyles comes in and looks like a bonfide super star; we come back to force over time, Deon Beasley intercepts Casey printers for a pick six in over time and does a front flip into the end zone! Possibly the greatest game I ever attended. I remember my buddies wanted to leave when BC scored to make it 32-14. I convinced them to stay and the rest is history!

  9. A few moments from 1953 - the year that "The House that Jack Built" opened In July, the Bombers brought in Tommy Thompson to be the backfield coach. Thompson played QB in the NFL (1940-1950) and guided the Philadelphia Eagles to championships in '48 & '49. Speculation was that Thompson was really in town to play QB. When training camp opened, Thompson was in full gear. He impressed enough that he was the opening day QB for Winnipeg. He would start 3 games total. At 35 years old & blind in one eye, Thompson was unable to play defence. Teams could dress 8 imports (all starters) so If he wasn't starting at QB, he wasn't dressing for the game. On October 1, Thompson was released as a player and he left town. Jack Jacobs was in the doghouse of Coach George Trafton for most of the season. In this era, it was a 10 yard penalty for "Coaching from the sidelines" if there was any communication from the bench to players on the field. It was up to the QB to call his own plays. The problem - Jack Jacobs had an obvious tell. Edmonton figured it out in 1952 and by 1953 every other team was aware too. If Jacobs called a pass, he had the offence in a spread formation. If he called a run, the offence was in a bunch formation. The linebackers would adjust based on the formation. Trafton tried to get Jacobs to mix things up so it wasn't obvious what the play call was but Jacobs wasn't able to oblige. With 3 games to go in the regular season, Trafton benched Jacobs and replaced him with Joe Zaleski. Heading into the playoffs, Jacobs was relegated to 3rd string QB behind Joe Zaleski & Geoff Crain. In the first game of the semi-final, Lorne "Boom Boom" Benson gained 163 yards on 23 carries including a playoff record 6 rushing TDs. On defence, the Bombers intercepted 8 passes. Bud Grant set a playoff record with 5 picks - the others went to Jack Jacobs, Tom Casey & Neill Armstrong. In game 1 of the west final, Jack Jacobs replaced Joe Zaleski at QB for the 2nd half of the game. Zaleski remained in the game at flying wing because Trafton wanted him to call the plays for Jacobs - that didn't work too well. All told, Zaleski started 9 games in a row leading up to the Grey Cup. Jack Jacobs was given the start for the Grey Cup game.

  10. Just want to point something out on the first half melee… I didn’t catch it all during the game… saw the Harris helmet rip after the fact… should he have been kicked out? Maybe…. But it seems a lot of people are forgetting in 2019 against Montreal when Vernon Adams ripped Bighill’s helmet off, tried to smash his head in with it… and still stayed in the game… Ripping a helmet off is definitely not an automatic dq…

  11. But that's exactly why it was a penalty. 1- Late 2- Head contact 3- Facemask grab and twist, actually pulls the QB to the ground by the facemask. That one is called 99 times out of 100.

  12. Tsn continuing to say.."Fajardo seems off today"...failing to clue in that Fajardo was finally facing a tough defense and the results were as expected. All they have is the short little pass and his scramble runs...needed because it was shown that it's needed cause that online is putrid. That's why he was always a back up...and still is really..if he needs to push it down field he can't...either off target...picked off...a poor 50/50 opportunity or a completion where the reciever needs to climb the ladder to catch... Prolific offence...yup...prolific in it's ineptitude...

    The fact that the Riders are endorsing this as a legit excuse tells you everything you need to know about that franchise. Test the whole lot of em next game.

  24. That's some A+ analysis. If a football team loses their starting QB they are not as good. Here I was thinking most teams had a guy on the sideline who is better that they don't play just because.

  26. As an OSU fan I have watched a fair bit of Taylor Cornelius, and even watched him in the XFL because he was OSU alumni. Here is the skinny based on what I have seen. Strong arm and can really zing it. Accuracy a big time issue on anything outside the tackles. He will look to make hay in the middle and seams. BIG, and strong, and actually really mobile. Not an easy sack at all and a surprisingly effective runner. The Bombers DL need to wrap up on this guy. Interception prone as he telegraphs some passes but gets away with it a lot more than he should because of his arm strength. When he's in a rhythm he can be very good, when he's bad...he's really bad. Bombers need to force him to make throws outside the hashmarks and not escaping the pocket by breaking tackles. That's my 2 cents based on what I've seen.

  28. man...looking at things you gotta like this defense and the adjustments they make mid game...to date...we have given up 15 points in the 3rd quarter, and only 3 in the fourth all year...damn!! even from last game of 2019 through to grey cup we gave up 24 in 3rd and only 6th in 4th...Thats some impressive work

  29. Demski’s issue on returns is ball security. O’Shea tried it and has shied away from it since. Also his role on O probably leads you to not want him to accumulate those hits on returns.

  30. What more can you say about Harris....He's giving it a 110 percent and looking like he's 24....When he went high and over a db's shoulder I thought he might come up a little nic'd BUT no way....What a trooper and the heart of this club

  37. I don't like that a Bomber alum is promoting murder on twitter. Classless, a black mark on this team I love so dearly. Rush should be ashamed, honestly. (/s for you humorless folks) I found the tweet that triggered this whole thing, by the way: No mention of actually beating anyone up, but the implication is obviously there... oh well, some of those aggressive anti-vaxxers blocking entryways and screaming at patients could use a shot to the jaw

  39. Beauty of a day for sellout, Bomber football…. Powell doing some effective running…. Taylor deked out of his shoes..after catch by Moore Rider drive killed by a drop by Hardy Bombers give up points again…on first drive 3-0 Zac complete to Adams and Woltman…..

Harris busts up the gut to the 7….then down to the 2.. McGuire burrows in for the TD. 6-3 Bombers…. …as Leggo misses the extra point What is it with the Rider D line and these offsides Morrow clobbered on KR. Several Bombers miss tackles on hitch pass, to Powell Powell bursts for 12……Riders sticking with the run game Bombers not dominating the LOS, right now Fajardo completes down to the Bomber 25…. Cody finally feels the heat and dumps ball away Rider FG makes it a 6-6 game Harris stuffed on 2nd down attempt…. Fajardo is buried by Jeffcoat and Bighill…. ….but then finds huge hole up the middle… ..scrambles for big gain.... Fajardo pressured...throws it up to no one in particular... .....except Bighill who makes nice diving INT.. Zac to Demski on a slant....who finds the sideline... ...and rolls for big gain to Sask 40... Zac hammered and completes to Wolt, who is on his back. 50 yard punt by Leggo….uh, I mean missed FG attempt Some concern about this kicking, moving forward…. Commander Cody finds a guy iso’ed on Bighill, along sideline… …..for 50 yd gain. 2 runs by Powell…then 2 incompletes Red zone D is the one thing Bomber D is doing right, so far… Crowd has shut up, somewhat…. Blue being outplayed… Harris for 9…..McGuire comes in…to, oops…..play action pass…. ….right down the pipe to Demski all the way to Rider 14 Zac scrambles and finds Bailey down to the 1 McGuire pounds it in…..now 12-9 Bombers…. Suddenly a brawl fest in end zone……Demski roughed up… …while Harris rips the helmet right off some dude Officials have a meeting and eject 2 Riders….but not Harris…. ……crowd cheering. Leggo misses extra point…crowd booing.. Leggo follows that up….with a KO out of bounds. Not good enough. Powell with a couple more good runs….and more missed tackles on D.. Cody F. scrambles out and finds Moore down to the Bomber 40.. Mike Jones breaks up pass at the goal line…..Sask challenge for PI….. ….but no dice. Lauther misses 50 FG attempt…. Nelson returns it….and does his run to the sideline thing….. Willie J. blows in and sacks Fajardo, who hits his head on the turf… ….and is walked to the dressing room… Zac finds Lawler down the middle on 2nd down for 22…. ….Rider roughing penalty tacked on….gets it to the Sask 30…. Harris on draw play….uses 2nd and 3rd effort for a first down… Zac looks for Lawler deep ….he is pulled down…obvious PI.. Mike Edem heads for the dressing room, holding his arm….. …while receiving plenty of “encouragement” from the fans.. McGuire pushes it in for TD #3….will he lead the league in scoring? Leggo makes the extra point….fans cheering somewhat ironically…. 19-9 Riders will need a bunch of field goals, here…. Harker comes in and scramble/passes it down to the Bombers 40 Lauther misses a 40 yarder…..bad kicking some kinda disease, here… Powell runs for 15 with yet more missed tackles. Riders jump offside. Bomber 3 man rush….but Jefferson strips the ball from Harker….. …..Riders recover…but it is a 22 yard loss…. 3 straight completions to Demski, Wolt, and Bailey have Blue moving.. Rider take yet ANOTHER offside call. Boning themselves with this stuff…. Collaros looks downfield and spots Adams 10 yards behind his man…… Zac lays the ball right in there…..for an easy peasy 40 TD pass. Leggo adds a bonus extra point….now 25-9 Bombers. 30,000 fans now won’t shut up….. Blue kick coverage good today…..rest of ST’s shaky….. Riders punt….Nelson busts return for 6 or 7 yards….. Leggo has punted pretty well at least Harker with more short passes….then sacked by Hansen….. 2nd down dump pass snuffed out by Bighill…. Harris uses classic spin move up the middle, for 15 Zac chucks up long ball over the back shoulder to Lawler… ....right on target….Lawler goes up and comes down with it.. 55 yd TD. Those 30K fans…still won’t shut up 33-9 with 2 minutes left Bombers run out the clock, with yet another Rider offside in the mix Riders without a touchdown or a point in 2nd half for 2 straight weeks… Bombers putting up crazy defensive record in points allowed…. Do or Die putting down crazy amounts of gin…..

  43. Bob irving on the post game show said, you see the mettle of a championship team when things dont go their way and they dont seem to care and just keep rolling. He mentioned the 8 play drive that kept getting pushed back by penalties. It sure is true and weve seen it with this team a couple times. You never see bombers brandon banksing

    Covid-19

    It's nothing but an article that dances around the periphery of anti vaccination/ anti passport/ anti mask. Look at the state's in the US that embrace this mentality , they are the worst hit by the 4th wave. Look what is begining to happen in Southern Health where less then %20 of the population has half the cases. Nothing makes us safe but vaccines, masks and passports make us safer. Articles like that are nothing but fodder for covidiots.
