    I've seen the Bombers play some awful football over the years, so if they wanna blow out everyone the rest of the year, they can go right ahead. Somehow, I'll find a way to manage............

    Pregame talk: Bombing the Hammer

    Way better than letting him get on the plane, punching the pilots, throwing Nichols' comfort squirrel out the window which makes the plane depressurize and 12 players get sucked out before Bryant plugs up the window... Since we've apparently moved into the "making up crap" portion of the show...

    Just so you know how this will work, until the Bombers are going for their 11th straight win from the start of the season, the answer will always be 1960. Are you from Saskatchewan?

    2019 CFL Season: Around the League

    From the MBB pick ‘ems Calgary @ Ottawa - 50-2 Toronto @ Edmonton - 7-45 Winnipeg @ Hamilton - 48-4 Saskatchewan @ BC - 22-30 Some CFL tidbits to ignore.. Some remarkable stats... Despite being 1-5, the BC Lions have recorded the most first downs this season (130). This season, teams that trail at the half are 5-15; team trailing after the third are 2-19. Saskatchewan’s Solomon Elimimian (757) is 10 defensive tackles away from surpassing Greg Battle (766) for 7th on the all-time list. Toronto generated just 3 TD drives in the first 3 games - they have 5 TD drives in their last 2 contests. Edmonton has failed to score on Offence in 2 of their last 3 games. They have 3 TD drives in their last 48 possessions. Toronto is a league-low -13 thus far and this has translated onto the scoreboard. Of the 188 points they have allowed thus far, 66 have come after their own Turnovers. A whopping 35%! Calgary is ranked #7 BOTH on Offence (44%) and Defence (allowing opponents to convert 54.5% of the time). A new analytic for 2019 shows that they have faced the highest average "yards to go" on 2nd down. On average they have been in 2nd down & 8.2 yards - the most in the CFL (CFL-wide average is 2nd-&-7.3 yards to go). In their 31-1 loss at Winnipeg, the REDBLACKS got no closer than the Winnipeg 40-yard line with their offence. Of their 51 offensive plays, just 5 were run in Winnipeg territory.

    Nichols played a lousy game as he himself admitted on the post game. Lapo called a poor game. Turnovers killed us. Those two fumbles on returns cost us 6 points. Oline did not have a great game. Our D was solid overall, especially against Evans. Hamilton's D was outstanding, especially their front 4 and let's highlight Davis.5-1 is still good. Being in first is good. On to the next one.

    It's possible. They brought an OL in yesterday but didn't end up signing him as he wasn't heavy enough. (Never trust people's Tinder profiles).

    It's GAME DAY!!!! BEST OF THE WEST vs Beast of the East (Ed Tait TOTALLY ripped this one off of me - jk) GAME 6 | WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS (5-0) at HAMILTON TIGER-CATS (4-1) THE 4-1-1 Kickoff: 6 p.m. CT Friday, Tim Hortons Field, Hamilton TV: TSN, RDS, ESPN+ Radio: 680 CJOB Vegas line: The Ticats are favoured by two points. Home/Road: The Bombers are 2-0 on the road this year with wins in Vancouver and Ottawa. Winnipeg is 4-1 in its last five road games, the lone blemish a loss to Edmonton in the 2018 regular season finale in which a number of the team’s starters did not play or had limited reps. Hamilton, meanwhile, is a perfect 3-0 at home this season. Recent history: The Bombers 5-0 start is the third best in franchise history. The 1960 squad opened with 10 consecutive victories en route to a 14-2 record while the 1939 Bombers rocketed to an 8-0 start, finished the regular season 10-2 and then defeated Ottawa to win the second of the franchise’s 10 Grey Cup championships. The Ticats, meanwhile, have opened with a 4-1 record in their first five games for the first time in 21 seasons. Series: The Bombers are 64-55-0 all-time vs. Hamilton and 27-32-0 at Ivor Wynne Stadium/Tim Hortons Field. (With thanks to Ed Tait) https://www.bluebombers.com/2019/07/25/game-preview-wpg-ham-3/

    I honestly don't really care about Chris Matthews right now. He has missed basically the whole season and we are doing just fine. He is not someone who has shown to be a proven commodity for us. He has barely been able to get on the field

    Pregame talk: Bombing the Hammer

    considering a third of the team was apparently there...and nobody knows the actual story...and it hasn't grown legs in the media...and the police havn't pressed charges...and nobody on social media has posted anything (and in this day an age where people whip out phones at anything and everything to post online is odd) ...and nobody was released/cut/suspended then yeah it's pretty obvious this was a whole big about nothing incident. I sure the coaches sat the team down and had a chat with them to make wiser choices and something like this better not happen again...but other than that is probably a forgotten matter now

    You guys are putting way too much value on streveler. Yes he can run but he’s not an accurate passer. And very few coaches would pull there veteran #1 qb in this game when it was as close as it was. Don’t blame O’Shea and call him stubborn. He’s doing what most coaches would do.

    Some of the more reactionary posts in the last 3 pages is why I avoid this place for 2 days after a game. We have not been exposed. Our roster management is not awful. This team CAN be taken seriously. Nichols overthrew some receivers, the line did not give him good time like in other games, coverage by Hamilton’s DBs was very good on deep balls, the team got down deep early and never committed to the run to get back into the game, and some bad special teams gaffes. Add to that injuries to the two best receivers tonight, and a 6 to 1 turnover ratio, and we lose. Guess what, we weren’t going 18-0. It’s a loss, it sucks, Hamilton was more emotionally ready to play on their first drive and all night defensively, move on to next week. We’re still a good team. I’ll see you all on Monday. Now back to the hysteria.

    2019 CFL Season: Around the League

    He owes the WFC nothing...? That's absurd. This organization gave him his first opportunity to be a HC. This organization stood up for him when fans and media said he wasn't HC material and wanted him gone. This organization supported him as he learned the ins and outs of what it takes to be a HC in this league. His "unique case" seems pretty irrelevant. His days as a player are probably a good memory for him but is that enough to lure him back there? The Argonauts are a dumpster fire. The fanbase is a shell of what it once was. The only "benefit" is Toronto's proximity to O'Shea's hometown (North Bay) but even that's a stretch, IMO. He'd have to foster a new relationship with that organization's stakeholders, its new GM, coaches, players, etc. Maybe the challenge is appealing but imagine the pressure that comes with it - especially with how poorly the Argos' 2019 is going. I guess anything is possible but I'm not convinced he'd just bounce if the Argos came calling. He's established himself with the WFC and I think that matters more than whatever past glory he had elsewhere.

    No it can't. Really a guy like MBT is just a punching bag, he's not going to get any better he's already in his 30s. Sort of like when we had Max Hall. I mean MBT would be useful to a team like the Bombers maybe if we lost some guys to injury and were going to just want a guy to do very simple things and rely on the run and D. On a 0 win team I don't know how much time you waste with a guy like that who clearly isn't good enough. Toss anyone else out there and see what you have until Franklin returns.

    Most of Matthews money was paid upfront...so cutting him would be dumb and a waste and as season moves forward isn't much of a cap hit

    Because we don't need to make a knee-jerk reaction, are not troubled by the cap and know what Matthews can do? Geez, I don't understand the rush to drop someone so fast.

    The thing I appreciate most about Hustler is that he interviews very well. He let's the guests speak and asks good questions. He never acts like he knows more than anyone else. When Lawless was there, he would ask a question, then give his opinion before the guest had a chance to answer to try to "show off" to the guest.

    Looking forward to tonight’s game. Not only because the Bombers are playing, but also to expunge the memory of those two so called football games last night. Just embarrassing... Hamilton and Winnipeg are the league’s two highest-scoring teams at 37.4 points per game and 33.8 points per game, respectively They are tied in points-scored on offence with 157 and each has tallied 21 touchdowns They top the league in points-allowed: Blue Bombers at 16.0 points per game; Hamilton at 20.0 points per game. They say the TiCats are two point favourites, but they also say Toronto has a CFL football 🏈 team.. Go, Big Blue..

    what else do you want to spend the money on? And if one of our receivers goes down to injury, then what? If guys like Lawler are making league minimum, what does it matter what Matthews is making while he waits?
