    Congratulations Bombers

    Well Done. No excuses here if you don't have a chance to win with your backups why are they on the team. It's football injuries will always happen and are never an excuse. The Head shot at the end did not cause us to loose the game. Good teams don't leave it up to one call, but for the love of god they need to get that hit out of the game, It happens too much to all teams QB's and my feelings on that don't change no matter what jersey colour the QB is wearing. I hope you carry the momentum and break your Grey Cup drought as every fan base that supports there team through thick and thin deserves to be part of a championship win cause it feels awesome. Still sucks we lost thought just glad it was a nail biting quality game. Cheers. Jason

    Simonise back on kickoff.....fumbles and boots it around, to put Bombers in a hole..... Nichols roughed in end zone, then O strings together 4 first downs..... Medlock makes it 3-0. Powell gets around the end on 2nd and short for 50 yards..... ...then catches ball on wheel route for easy TD. D on 2 point convert, still not a Bomber specialty…..8-3 Ottawa Nichols spreading the ball around, early, and releasing it quicker.... Hits Demski, then Dressler down to the RB 25, Adams catches slant. …. Harris runs for first down, then Adams catches another slant..... …..breaks a tackle and is in the end zone for the TD... Harris finding open receivers and has time to deliver...… So far, looks like the aliens have returned the real Hall to us...... Fenner blitz/sack stops drive on 2nd down. FG makes it 11-10 Redblacks Demski runs for 15, then passes to Adams and Demski…. ...sets up 37 yd Medlock field goal. 13-11 Blue Opo jumps offside.... but in 3 man rush....sacks Harris, on next play.... Medlock hits #3 to push it to 16-11. Ward goes for CFL consecutive FG mark with #39 in a row.... No... RedBlacks run the fake FG....and it comes up short... Adams embellishes contact a bit and draws 30 yd PI. Thompkins makes nice catch for first down... Dressler grabs 10 more.. Nichols sacked....Harris gets to Ott 24. Llast play FG has Bombers up 19-11. Alexander tagged for PI....but Bryant sacks Harris on another 3 man rush.... Nichols takes flea flicker, drops it off to Big Wolt for 20..... Dressler takes hitch for 10...Harris runs it down to the Ottawa 6..... Harris then...uh.....stands and watches 2 incomplete passes from there (sigh) Medlock is 5 for 5. Bombers up 22-11 Bombers kick their first punt ….at 5:50 of the 3rd quarter Harris drilled by Bighill. Ward does tie the record this time. 22-14 Blue Demski dancing around...on the end around...and fumbles ball away.. RB's don't go on 3rd and 1. Ward now has CFL record with 40th straight Bombers could use some O here. Nichols fumbles but Chung recovers.... Harris catches pass, hurdles tackler for good gain. Ottawa roughing on same play...

Somehow Randle has good ole JFG take the ball right out of his hands..... JFG then catches 30 yard shotput TD pass...as Fogg falls right down.... 32-14 Hold the phone. That only took Ottawa 45 seconds..... Huge Medlock punt puts RedBlacks on own 32, with 1:45 left Ellingson makes great catch to convert 3rd and 3..... Bombers laying off receivers and missing tackles, now... JFG (new Ottawa threat) catches pass over middle to Bomber 15 Harris then tosses to Ellingson for the TD. But they need the 2-pointer Of course, Ellingson catches floater over Alexander. 32-32 Bomber D has completely vaporized a 15 point lead in last 3 and a half minutes. OT. Harris catches, then runs for first downs. Harris rips off 12 more.... Nichols finds Dressler on 2nd down....wide open in end zone. 38-32 Bombers Have to have the 2. Nichols delivers to Adams. Up 40-32. Matt has looked a lot like the ole efficient Nichols, today..... Just need a stop on D, to close out this thing and cap my drinking... Ellingson catches two passes for first downs.....we just can't cover that guy... Vincent Rodgers takes brutal roughing penalty after the whistle Bomber D can't cover Sinopoli either...he takes it to the 18 Sinopoli catches it again, cuts inside to the Bomber 5...… ...but Adam Bighill pursues him....and punches the ball out..... Santos-Knox falls on it. Bomber ball. Bomber WIN. D finally make a stop.

    Darren Cameron‏Verified account @Darren_Cameron #Bombers have re-signed DE Jackson Jeffcoat to two-year extension. Jeffcoat was to be a free agent next month. Over two seasons in Winnipeg (28 games), he’s recorded 12 sacks, 57 defensive tackles, one INT & three forced fumbles. Recorded four sacks in two playoff games in 2018.

    2018 Matt Nichols

    I think a lot of Matt Nichols and think he’s a great quarterback who is having a pretty bad stretch right now. But as far as the booing goes, any time a player on this team tells me or any other fan in the stands that they shouldn’t boo or they should be ashamed of booing, they should quite honestly STFU and realize most of those fans have been around far longer than they have and will be around long after they’re gone. Bomber fans as a collective have witnessed some of the shittiest football imaginable and stuck with their team through all of it, so forgive us if our frustration comes out once in a while because the team is playing like trash. Any player who tells any fan that they don’t have the right to voice an opinion is wrong. That includes Nichols, Neufeld, even Andrew Harris who is one of the easiest athletes in Manitoba to respect. Yeah, we get it. You give a lot to the fans and the community. The fans and the community have given a lot to them too and we have the right to be disappointed. Period.

    I would just like to personally thank the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Chris Jones and Duron Carter for making the last 48 hours of an otherwise quiet Saturday night/Sunday, as entertaining as possible. They say the air quality warnings in Winnipeg are from forest fires in the West...we all know they're actually from the green and white tire fire that is 'Canada's team'. May the green and white continue to flounder indefinitely.

    Esks Mitchell gets wide open, down on sideline....Reilly misses him... Sayles comes in clean and blocks first punt of the game..... Nichols sacked.....Blue settle for Medlock's 3.... Camera reveals that MOS... is not wearing shorts... Winnipeg media should initiate an investigation... Sayles....nice hit on shuttle pass...... Wolt Man takes middle pass for 30...getting the Blue out of a hole... The Duke of Edmonton catches pass, but fumbles....Alexander recovers... Nichols looking a bit tentative under pressure...he is sacked again... Bighill hits Reilly's arm on 2nd down....killing a Moes drive Adams can't squeeze 2nd pass for Blue.... Bomber O sputtering right now.... Reilly misses a pair of passes.....Esks O sputtering, as well... Some ugly pass pro, and slow decision making by Nichols...another sack. Nichols finally hits Petermann...good effort to run it to the 2 Streveler sneaks in....Bombers 10-0 Bomber import receivers....only effective as decoys, at this point..... Miller lays down the smack, on kick coverage.... Yet another 2 and out by Edmonton... Reilly now looking flustered ..... Miller comes in and slides out of the backfield to catch and run for 22. Medlock misses 44 yd FG attempt. Bighill and Bomber DT's....really running things in the middle now... Gator comes off edge...hits Reilly...ball goes right to Loffler downfield.... ....heads up lateral to Fogg brings it down deep into Esks territory.... Dressler sweeps it to the 5....then Harris takes the pitch untouched for the TD... Sayles gets in another good hit downfield.... Randle breaks up pass in endzone....Esks settle for FG. 17-3 halftime 2nd half starts like 1st...Bighill flushes out Reilly, who gets plowed by Santos-Knox..... Gets worse....Reilly throws late on square out....Fogg steps in front of it.... ....and cruises 70 yds down the sideline for easy Bomber TD. 24-3. Eskimos doing a lot of holding and throwing blocks early....to no avail.... Crazy amount of stunts and 6 man fronts from Hall tonight..... Reilly flushed out again....Alexander hits arm from behind..... ... with Fogg on the spot again, to recover the fumble.....his big nite continues.... Harris getting stuffed in the run game....Blue getting conservative on the play calls... Medlock makes it 27-3. 20 points off of 5 Eskimo turnovers.... Bomber D getting big pressure on virtually every play...and forcing errant throws.... Reilly now gets buried in the backfield by 3 Bombers......tough night indeed... Bombers now doing their own version of Play Safe....on O. We have around 160 yds in offense....and a 24 point lead.. D continuing to push the Esks around physically.....Reilly hits the dirt, yet again... Bombers finally and actually throw the ball down field to Adams for 30.... Harris starting to pound away at the tired Esk D-line for back to back first downs..... But Lapo gets cute....Dressler loses 5 on that ole sweep. Nichols is pressured....tries to squeeze it in tight....and is picked off at the Esk 5 yd line. Sayles pops the Duke again....this time he stays down, then leaves the game... Reilly is sacked by Nevis, on 3rd and 10....for turnover number 6.... ...and looking in serious discomfort at the Edmonton bench...... Harris does some more effective clock grinding....Medlock makes it 30-3 O' Brian comes in...and appropriately throws last play pick to Alexander. Bomber secondary's best game - Fogg, Sayles, and Alexander really got it done The inside story....was the pregame abduction of Richie Hall....by aliens. ...as the guy who took his place... dialed up a whole bunch of looks ..and big, big pressure Offense was nothing special.....but the D was.... Gin was nothing special ....but the consumption was...

    Practise Observations Aug 30, 2018

    Heard Bennett is taking all the 1st team snaps. Too bad about Bighill's injury. Probably won't play. I like the new fake punt they're working on. Medlock has a good enough arm to pull it off. If Bryant's knee injury doesn't heal, I wonder who they will start at LT? I like all the play action stuff with Harris. I bet the Riders fall for it every time and try to prevent the run.

    Ticats get going.....20 yd completion.... ....then Banks cutting back to catch long ball on Randle Masoli breaks contain... Loffler misses tackle on catch, ball inside the 5 Green goes in from the 1.... to cap 75 yd Hamilton opening drive TD Ensuing kickoff, Demski finds hole... eludes tacklers for 55 yd KR Harris busts quick trap play for 30 yds.. down to the 10..... Nichols runs play action, then finds Dressler all alone in back of endzone 7-7....could be a high scorer today..... Green popped by Bighill on 1st down run....funbles..Bomber ball.... Harris pounds it down to the 6....Cats offside puts it at the 3 Harris bulls in for the TD...Bomber O-line getting good push in run game... Bighill and Blue DT's stuffing Hamilton run game.... Some missed tackles hurting Bombers on D..... Hamilton takes a bunch of penalties,,,,two possessions in a row.....

Masoli under duress..sacked by Jeffcoat, this time..... Thomkins pretty smooth with good hands at R.... Westerman can still take major penalties, it seems..... PI call takes ball to Cats 12 yd line...penalties hurting Hamilton.... Blue have to settle for Medlock FG.....17-7 for the good guys.... Nichols having some accuracy problems throwing down the field..... 2nd and 14...and Masoli is either sneaking or busted play.... ....fumbles for another Hamilton turnover.... Nichols and Adams not on the same page tonight....... Nichols almost goes "Gatorade" at the Bomber bench.... Hamilton now taking the penalties on ST's...bad field position..... Cats opt for the safety. Bombers up 19-7.... Harris takes hitch pass...cutting and spinning for 25 yds...... Thomkins takes roughing penalty off the ball...... MOS comes on the field.... provides Thomkins with some vigorous opinion.. ...this helpful advice... continues for some time on Bomber sidelines.... Medlock bombs end over end punt for about 55 net yards..... Bombers rushing Masoli.....Masoli rushing throws...... Adams blanketed so far in this one...... Medlock pushes 54 yd FG attempt wide. 19-7 at the half Lead could be bigger, Blue had great field position.... ...off of turnovers, Bomber D stops and Hamilton penalties... But O is out of sync, not spreading ball around....a lot of deep pocket passes Bomber get good field position to start half...Nichols overthrows Demski Matt is having a pretty rough evening all round......

Petermann takes 2nd down short flair...beats couple of tacklers for another FD Blue can't get it in. Medlock makes it 29-23 with 1:20 left..... Hamilton having trouble with amped up noise... takes 2 proceedure calls... Bighill caps off huge game by tackling Masoli in pocket on 3rd and 13 Ballgame. Up and down game all round..... Plenty of room for improvement - but job got done Much to ponder - but gin got drunk.

    Blue Bomber Attendance

    Once upon a time there was a wonderful place called Canad Inns Stadium. We must be careful not to speak about this time too loudly, but the memories of such a place warm us in this cold and horrible place and time we find ourselves in now. There was parking for 33,000 vehicles within 20 steps of any entrance into the stadium. Hundreds of invisible doves flew constantly around the stadium and would sweep down and take anyone who could not walk these 20 steps easily and they would carry them right up to their seat. Every fan was treated with an incredible 7 course meal for the sum of $1, or pocket lint if they did not have a loonie. It was such an incredible experience and everyone in the land was happy. Then a dark cloud covered the land. An evil presence was felt by all in the great land of Winnipeg. A booming voice was heard by all and the ground trembled. It was the evil Asper! The evil Asper tore down this beloved treasure, the Canad Inns Stadium. There was much weeping. The evil Asper banished the invisible doves to the island of Hecla where they were forced to play golf on a deserted course day and night. There was much weeping - though they were also confused about the island of Hecla. The evil Asper constructed a dungeon on a desolate and dark precipice of land that could only be reached by Sherpas riding mountain goats. The evil Asper then taxed the good people of the land of Winnipeg until they were all paupers in order to pay for his new dungeon that he named IGF. 10 times per year, the evil Asper and his evil henchmen would round up thousands of the now homeless people of Winnipeg and force them using pointed sticks and hobnail boots to walk the entire 100 mile stretch without the aid of mountain goats to reach his dungeon. While in this dungeon, the evil Asper forced the poor wretches to eat cold hotdogs and held them there until their families could find a way to scrape together the tonne of gold bricks that was needed to this sustenance. When the weather would get cold, he would even tell them that he had no hot chocolate! When the wailing was at its peak, they could hear the violin playing from the distant tower where the evil Asper would cackle and contemplate new indignities for his minions to endure while being held in his dungeon called the IGF. And there was much weeping throughout the land. Could there be a hero somewhere who could free the people of Winnipeg of their misery?

    Granted there are other parts to the deal, but 2 first round picks and a Canadian starter for a QB that hasn't played a down yet is beyond lunacy.

    I was at practise today (September 18)...here are my observations regarding how we lined up OLine Bryant Neufeld Goosen Chungh Hardrick (Couture 6th man) QB Nichols all 1st team scrimmage reps RB Harris with LaFrance backing up. Flanders doesn't look like he'll be on the game-day roster, (no 1st team reps and no ST reps) RECEIVERS Adams Dressler Demski Thompkins Wolitarsky (Peterman and Simonise in reserve) Washington doesn't look like he'll be on the game-day roster, (no 1st team reps) DLine Roh Bryant Nevis Oka (Thomas and Rivers rotating in) LB JSK Bighill Gaitor at SAM (reps were about a 70/30 split with Gaitor and Fenner) SECONDARY Priester Alexander Loffler Sayles Randle (reps were about a 70/30 split with Priester and Fogg) PUNT cover notable Briggs and Bennet are upbacks Fenner and Randle the gunners Wild still playing on the team PUNT return notable Demski and Fogg getting reps... Didn't observe kick team scrimmage DI's Looks like Medlock, Rivers, Fenner, and Wild

    Nichols hits Thompkins on 20yd slant..... Demski sweeps for another 25...... But on 2nd and short....Nichols lines up wide... ...with a direct snap to Demski - 5 yd loss... Just another Lapo Special, in the red zone.. Medlock makes it 3-0 Bombers driving again....Thompkins drops 2nd down pass... ....then goes down and is carried into ambulance on a stretcher... Alexander making some nice plays early Harris draw play on 2nd and 17...draws some boos..... Gator totally jumps hitch pass....Colaros throw it right to him ....and Gator is long gone, for 50 yd INT TD. Blue up by 10 Rider O not looking much better than last week.... Nichols does throw behind to Washington on side lines.... ...who gets face mask tacked on for a huge gain..... Harris wide open in flat - Nichols throws over middle instead ...right into the hands of Jefferson, who runs by Nichols ..... ....and keeps running and hotdogging 98 yds for the TD Nice 14 point swing, there... Next possession, Nichols throws pick into double coverage on Petermann.... ..... but roughing penalty negates it. Matt really pressing out there.... Very physical out there.....Riders really having some penalty issues.... Sask punt from end zone.....Demski actually runs straight ahead for 20 yds PR Riders take 3 penalties, to put it on the 1. Streveler sneaks in. 17-7 Blue Alexander picks off under thrown ball......PI penalty wipes that out.... Collaros hits pass down to the 11. Gator makes nice play on screen pass Riders settle for 3. Nichols under duress, tries to throw it away...... ...but it floats up short of the sideline....for an awful INT. Roh takes stupid Ob conduct - kicking mouth guard lying on the field Riders close the gap, with FG......17-13 Wolitarski becoming a solid target in this O Nichols under pressure, tries desperation underhanded toss.... ....right into the hands of a Rider who motors untouched for 100 yd TD.. Riders somehow up 20-17 in a half where they had like 80 yds of O. Nichols gets a resounding chorus of boos to close out the half. 5 picks in a half.... from a veteran QB in a must game? Enough. If Nichols is not pulled - MOS is going to hear it too. 2nd half....and yes.... looks like Streveler will go in Collaros moves the Riders for 4 first downs.... Bombers leaving the flats wide open. Actual Loffler sighting....as he flat out drops ball, thrown right at him. Streveler's first pass is to Petermann for nice gain Blocking for Harris is non-existent today, totally stuffed on the run plays Petermann gets totally jacked up over the middle by a Rider Alexander still making plays - nice game for him. Wish Demski would do less dancing and more straight line Strev overthrows pass into double coverage....which is then tipped and picked off.. What is with our QB reads today? Like some kind of contagious disease..... Loffler shoves guy into kicking net - 15 yds. Mason running effectively for Riders.....D does hold. Rider FG puts them up by 9. Morose atmosphere in stands. Hecth blitz off the edge, comes in clean and drills ZC - fumble recovered by Bighill Wolitarski gets good yds on screen....Demski sweeps for another first down Streveler then finds Petermann in back of end zone for the TD. The Canucks do a better job of catching and YAC, than our imports at receiver. Bomber D gets another stop. Strev finds Adams deep over the middle.... Petermann drops probable TD slant. Medlock puts bombers into the lead. Bridge gets two big completions and roughing penalty, and Mason, down to Bomber 15 Bomber D yet another stop. A lot of bending..... but no breaking, today..... Rider FG puts them up 29-27. 3 minutes to go. Two Streveler incomplete passes....forces Blue to punt. Harris a complete afterthought in our O, at this point..... Bomber D does the job and O has ball back with 2 minutes to go.... Streveler throws for loss to Demski - short pass to Demski - now 3rd down Riders get big pressure...Strev lobs one up to the sideline while falling down.... .....for yet another pick. Why not? One area of consistency in Bomber O, today... Riders hit 6th FG of game. Now 32-27 Streveler hits Washington over the middle But 5 Bombers can't handle 3 rushers... ....and Strev is sacked. Now Hail Mary time..... But pass out of bounds, 15 yds short of end zone will not get it done. Bombers done. The D really hung in there today, making a number of big plays to stop Rider drives The O? What we have here is a failure to execute. Play calls, drops...bushel of picks.. Must win game and must bounce back game for Nichols. Double fail. 4th straight loss. Took a lot of mistakes to get swept by this Rider team. Bombers certainly well up to that task Managed to get this Odds and Sods out, in a relatively calm manner.... ....while drinking my gin ferociously.

    On Offence - O line same as last week with Foketi at RT - Simonise got Adams' reps; - LaFrance got Harris' reps; - Washington got all reps with 1st team...Lankford didn't get any with first team while I was there....leads me to believe that if either Adams or Dressler can't go...Washington draws in with Lankford off the game day roster; - My sense is that Adam's will be good to go...while Simonise took Adams' scrimmage reps...they didn't have him taking part in 1st team offence drills while punt team was scrimmaging...he and the other reserve receivers were tending to their scout team duties on punt coverage... - Dressler's participation in practise was similar to the past two weeks...helping out LaPo with drills...not sure he draws in... - Nichols threw a bad pick to Priester (playing the scout team) - Streveler moved the ball well against 1st team D hitting a home run deep shot to Lankford over Fogg... On D - Bryant got 1 team reps at tackle - D Line was Roh, Bryant, Nevis, Okpalaugo (Thomas rotating in...didn't see Poop Johnson rotating in) - Secondary was the same as last week - Fenner in at SAM for Leggett - Gaitor came in on some packages as extra DB...didn't see Cooper coming on as extra DB - Randle subbed himself out intermittently with Priester coming on...doesn't look serious Based on how they practised today, it appears as one lineup change will be Washington on for Lankford (Dressler was on the game day roster last week); another will be Jeffcoat coming off...not sure who comes on in place of Jeffcoat...maybe Gaitor Fenner and Wild were on punt team...leading me to believe they'll continue to be on the roster as DI's...not sure if an extra DB like Gaitor will come on...if so...the other DI will likely be a choice between Poop Johnson and the extra DB. Based on the way they practised...it doesn't look like they're too concerned that Leggett won't be ready to go...I based this on the fact they kept Fenner on punt team...not likely that they would have him on punt and kick team and starting SAM... They still have one full practise day left...plenty of time to change up D and ST if Legget can't go FWIW...the team looked very loose...not especially as sharp as I've seen them in past practises...but that's a subjective opinion...others who attended may feel differently

    Bombers get no respect...

    So here are some interesting numbers over the each teams last 5 games comparing us vs Sask. Wpg vs Calgary 29-21 off a bye week and controlled 3/4 of the game. Wpg vs Sask 31-0 dominated, period Wpg vs Ottawa 40-32 dominated, but almost let it get away. Wpg vs Edmonton 30-3 dominated. Wpg vs Montreal 31-14 dominated. We outscored our opponents 161- 70 Now the inbreeders... Sask vs BC 35-16 defense dominated by Sask Sask vs Calgary 29-24 held on to win Sask vs Wpg blown out 0-31 Sask vs Edm 19-12 slugfest and managed to squeak out a win. Sask vs Montreal 34-29 barely beat one of the weakest teams in the league. Sask has outscore their opponents 117-112. Every team Sask has beat, we have beat better or worse! We are destroying teams they barely beat. I'm so sick of TSN and the CFL websites talking about how good Sask is... They really do have a horseshoe up their arses, that's for sure. Even the 2 times they beat us, 1 play our way and the outcomes are different. I'm truly not scared of these Hillbillies! I'll be cheering for Calgary this weekend so we through Mosiac for the semi and shut their faces once and for all! TSN will probably still have the Riders higher on the power rankings after we beat their a**es in the playoffs! We have seen that any team can beat anyone else this year, but here are my power rankings based on recent play and momentum: Wpg 5-0 Multi-dimensional offense, lights out defense, we can lay the beatdown on anyone in the league. Ottawa 3-2 ( Great Offense, very capable defense, Officiating always goes their way. Case in point last time we played them). Sask 4-1 ( Dominant D, horrible offense, horseshoes up their a$$es and the refs never call penalties on them except for make up Bull$hit meaningless ones to even out the game ). Bc 3-2 ( Normally potent Offense and tough D, I think had an off game against Sask. Will play with anyone in the league when they are "on"). Hamilton 2-3 (have potential to be contender but really missing speedy B and defense is Meh at best). Calgary 2-3 (last 2 wins were against Toronto and Montreal...Nuff said). Playoffs will be Semi Wpg @ Sask Winnipeg wins Bc @ Hamilton Bc wins Finals Wpg @ Calgary Wpg wins BC at Ottawa Ottawa wins Grey Cup Wpg VS Ottawa- Damn straight Wpg wins!!!! Whoot Whoot Go BLUE! ii

    Too bad about Mo. He was a special player here during his time. Really a huge part of being one of those big time, classy players who helped change the culture of our football club from being one or the worst ran organizations to one of the best. Whether this is the end or not I want to congratulate Mo for an outstanding career in the Blue and Gold. He always had an absolute nose for the football. Can’t be said enough his impact for the Bombers over his tenure here in Winnipeg.

    Cold, cold wind...up in the ole upper deck.... ZC throws to Moore, Bighill strips ball out..... ….right into the arms of Gaitor...untouched down sideline for 6 Bighill in on a lot of tackles early..... Bomber O sputtering in this 1st quarter.... Until Nichols play actions.....then throws long ball.... ….drops it into Adams, in stride....75 yds clear sailing.... Only play on O..... and Bombers are up 14-0. Bomber D closing on receivers and making sure tackles..... Medlock with some nice punting...ST's with good coverage.... Collaros completing some balls.....but not going through reads.... Lots of jaw-jaw between Blue receivers and Rider D..... Loffler actually looks like centerfielder....as he picks off bad ZC throw, deep Couple of Harris runs.....gets it to Rider 15..... Naturally we get an incomplete pass, then a sack... Medlock pops 30 yd FG....Bombers 17-0... For his size...Sayles does some thumping out there..... Hall still running lots of blitz packages, again.... Collaros getting pressured....and looking shaky.... Thompkins catches for FD....Harris runs for another 9... Streveler on 2nd and short …rears up and throws down the middle... ...where only Dressler can get it....with a nice diving catch in the end zone... 30 yd TD. 24-0. Turning into nightmare half for the Riders.... Bartel getting outkicked by Medlock, Blue getting good field position.... Nichols completes passes to Demski and Wolitarsky…… Streveler then runs sneak and barges his way up the gut, for 25....to Rider 1 QB sneak on next play.....Bombers simply tuning up the Riders now Banjo Bowl stench has finally dissipated ….now 31 to nothing, in first half.... Blue get standing ovation from crowd, as time runs out..... Collaros starting the 2nd half.....to the surprise of many..... Bighill blows into Rider backfield to sack ZC..... Bridge finally comes in at QB....promptly sacked by Gaitor….. Wolitarsky looking more and more... like an ace inside receiver... Bridge scrambling 25 yds back of line of scrimmage, but gets off nice bomb... ….to Shaw, who like most of the Riders receivers, today...can't catch a cold... Nichols is done.....Streveler will take it from here...Harris actually being rested also... Loffler really ranging around there, in this one.... Bighill chases down Bridge, with some tremendous pursuit...… Sayles having another strong game, back there..... Bridge has a terrific arm....but with no clue what he is doing out there..... Both teams still smacking on D....just punts going back and forth, now.... Bridge to Holley, who is stripped by Fogg....who also recovers the fumble... ….capping off a miserable afternoon for Rider receiving corps..... This Bryant at DT can ball, some....surprising quickness. Bombers get it back with 2.5 minutes left....and just grind out the clock …..to preserve the 31-0 shutout. Bombers needed that game more.....and played like it I needed the gin, just as much....and drank like it.

    I'm pretty sure that strut was aimed at Willy Jefferson and was intentionally mocking his strut from the B.B. debacle. As I understand it they are actually friends from their time together in Edm., so none of this should be taken very seriously. It was good to see Nichols shed his bout of mid-season gloom.

    I’m going to give some credit to Mike O’Shea. The decision to substitute players for the 4th quarter was an important step for O’Shea. It was a must. When Streveler went in, it was a learning experience. He threw that pick to the sidelines. This was the time to make that mistake..when you’re up by big points, not when #1 QB goes down and you’re pressed into action. Right there, Streveler found out you can’t casually throw that ball to the sidelines. He had to bullet it there. Now he knows. He won’t be doing that again. Streveler found out by playing. There’s no other way.

    Go Green & White - "I hope in the off-season we go get Strevler. He has the heart of a Rider."

    Nichols wasn’t the reason we lost 2 playoff games with him at QB; 2017 - 35 out of 48 attempts. 72.92% for 371 yards 3 TDs 0 ints. 2016 - 26 of 40 attempts 65% for 390 yards 2 TDs 0 ints Those numbers are very good.

    Clip from a Jamaal Westerman interview on CFL.ca KC: If you could be stranded on a deserted island with any teammate you’ve ever played with in the CFL, who would it be and why? JW: I would say my brother (Jabar Westerman) but he’s a vegan so we’re not going to be eating any food! It’s going to be all, ‘here’s some berries.’ So maybe not my brother. I also would want my mom to be like, ‘two of my sons are gone.’ So maybe it would be Jake Thomas. We played together in Winnipeg. He’s a really good friend of mine. He would be fun to be on a deserted island with. He’s not that fast so if anything is chasing us, I’ll probably get away. https://www.cfl.ca/2018/07/26/tmi-jamaal-westerman-creature-habit/

    Bomber first possession.....Nichols hits Bowman! ....who drops it. Harris running well, again..... Nichols finds Adams wide open 22 yds in end zone, for TD Blue 2nd possession...Adams takes short dump 25 yds... Harris keeps pounding.....NIchols hits Adams down to the 5 Harris waltzes into the endzone untouched from the 1....TD Franklin completes 3 passes, setting up 25 yd FG attempt,, ....that is missed. All omens looking good for Bombers, so far... Still looking for Loffler..... But on O, Bombers have 9 FD and 120 yds for the quarter... Wilder getting stuffed by Blue D...DT's playing well.... Harris screen pass...then Dressler makes nice catch on sideline..... Nichols finds Adams down to the 5, Harris untouched (again)... ....on swing pass for the TD....22-1.....with 11,000 unhappy fans.... Bomber O making last weeks 2nd half....just an unhappy memory... Argos finally mount a "drive" featuring 3 interference penalties on Blue.. After 16 plays.....at least the Argos can chip away with 32 yd FG.... Argo kicker misses that one as well....Fogg runs it out, TO gets nothing... After another Argo 2 and out....Fogg tries running catch on punt return.. ....he misses....Noel gets the Argo bounce....and runs it all the way. TD Bombers running out the clock, last minute....until Harris fumbles.... Argo kicker finally pops a field goal. 25-12 at the half Bombers literally give away 11 points in the final minute.... Another laugher no longer that funny....more gin incoming..... Blue D line doing a nice job of keeping Franklin in the pocket... Bomber patchwork secondary, not looking that patchwork..... Harris turns the corner for big gain, Nichols rolls out..hits Dressler... Harris rumbles to the 5, then the 1. Nichols sneaks in....TD Good response from the Bomber O....Nichols back into groove. Better pursuit and tacking from Bomber D, in this one Fogg rolls back in with 55 yd punt return. Demski takes pass to 15 Medlock puts Bombers up 35-12....gin consumption down..... Wilder stripped by Jeffcoat....Nevis recovers.... Demski catches ball out wide, but fumbles it..... ...some Argo picks it up....cruses 85 yds for another Argo D TD. 18 points now given up on turnovers.... Nasty habit of no killer instinct at times... But at least, we do have the Argo O...Franklin dreadful INT to Sayles Lot of talk about the "Franklin era" this week....pump the brakes... Nichols to Dressler down to the 20, Medlock makes it 38-20.. ...as MOS decides that a 3 score game is better, that getting cute... Wilder running wide... is not his thing....complete non-factor, today.. Bowman catches one! Well, on the bounce.....too bad... ...as that one would of been worth about 45 K...... Argos down to their 3rd down....ball stripped by Thomas.... ...Nevis recovers, to cap off his strong game..... Harris rips off 20...still pounding away....must be over 150 now.... Is this guy, the best player in the league?....one could argue.... Argos take time out with 46 seconds left....what for? To find the airhorn? To dress Pinball? Clock runs out....38 to 20, and a much needed win... Score makes it look competitive....actual game was not.... No reason not to sweep these guys....or keep drinking....
