    Training Camp 2018

    some thoughts... Firstly it appears a few guys have come to camp in better shape ..Harris looks leaner and faster..Poop as well looks more buff and a bit more lean...and still is so damn powerful. Faith too looks much better...Quicker and more agile...and in better game shape for CFL ball...he got knicked up in the one on ones but took turns in team session later so must be ok...3rd and 1.5...I dont see him as still a project...he has improved and is more expolive...i took time to study d-line a bit so more on that later... Receivers..not gonna focus on the projected starters too much...is what it is but Demski actually impressed me somewhat...he's better than what i recall and if injury free i see him doing good things this year in a Lapo offence White...cant see this guy not being on the gameday roster and taking significant first team reps...he is just plain good. He is what we use to call a QB enhancer as he can make any QB look good and has the ability to use his speed and fluidness and his uncanny ability to track a ball to make it look like the QB is always on the money..He is Dresslers replacement when that day comes...and if Dress gets hurt this year and misses significant games..he may have trouble getting his spot back...White is that good Coney and Dye as well impressed..shifty and fast and catch the ball in stride and hit upfield in 5th gear in an instant. Washington has the potential to be an Adarius 2.0 sans the drops...didnt wow in practice too much today, but if used how I think they plan to, may be one of the guys who when lights are on just produce. Lankford to me just looks too unatural as a receiver..too much of a body catcher and has limited route running skills..Seeing as Demski and White can do returns...don't see a need for him to e rostered as a DI and see him as a camp cut Canadian wise..Demski is solid and looks to be more north south this year and not the dance around side stepper he tended to be in Sask...if he keeps that up he will produce big...and avaoid injuries too...also him comin out of backfield with Harris on some sets is really going to cause trouble for defenses..speaking of Harris if they eventually do transition him to a slot role he will flourish...solid mitts on the guy Simonese u can see the rust flaking away..i noticed from combine..to mini..to main camp. He is deceptively fast and caught everything thrown at him..and seems to be very fast when ball is in his hands...he could cause some mismatches on the edge and today showed a nice ability to get separation from the db. Him and Drew I see taking equal reps in the offence until one or the other separates and shows they are more of a game breaker...then the split of reps will be more one sided..Peterson too impressed..fast..good hands...decent route runner...we are going to be ok with National receivers if u ask me..even with 2 rookies more or less in the lineup...should be noted Tyler Henry actually didnt look out of place but as did Pierre but they may be victims of numbers game..though [Pierre offers use on ST's Obviously Nichols is starter looked good...no suprise, Ross tho...impressed....throws a good ball...can move around and i dont think will get flustered...u can see he sees the field well and actually looks through his progressions and finds the right guy. I think if he has to come in to a game we are gonna be all right,,,and actually better off than if we had Durant here..and his broken down passing now...Strevler is behind Ross at moment but thats more from bein a raw rookie and learning as he goes...can tell though he is a Mike Reilly threat to gain gobs of yards on the ground if he had too... Dline guys on roster will be interesting to see who makes gameday. POOP looks to be primed for a big year..guys a beast...Jeffcoat has one end spoy I'm certain...Pretty sure Roh at the least is a DI..now it gets interesting...Nevis seemed to have more burst this year...but if Brandon Bryant shows well in pre-season..he (Nevis)may be in trouble and a TC casualty..Bryant is quick off the ball and has a lot of power to go with his quickness. Same with OPO...of nthe new comers Montgomery really stood out...had some clean wins in the one on ones and is so fast off the edge..and has great pursuit...lCasher as well...but of the 2...Montgomery is just better. Larry Webster is a bit more raw...but freakish athletic and can see him on PR as depth behind our 3 import starters...It wouldnt shock me if both OPO and Nevis get bumped off the roster...but gut says to start year only one will be cut..i hink it Nevis Faith i think looked a lot better...and a guy who didnt look out of place was Marouf..has some power and quickness and actually some pretty decent technique..he is way more athletic and versatile than Thomas and I can see why the team didnt ring him back...if Marouf is replacing Thomas on roster...we are better for it DB's are gonna be Randle..Loffler..for sure...Alexander looks good this spring...u can tell he understands the game much better and doesnt have to think now...just react..plus he has nice size...had a nice pick today too...Walker was steady and always involved...and looked more polished...and at only 22 this yr his upside is huge. a guy who stood out to me was Mohamad SEISAY...he got hurt mid practice and was missing for a while but i seen him at the end..not sure how bad, but he did some things that made me notice..as did Gaitor... I think a combo of Fenner..Leggett..Randle..Alexander..Gaitor..Loffler will be our game day guys in some capacity...and with addition of Bighill who is excellent in coverage too our defense is going to be pretty stingy. Linebacking is tough to gauge in camps like this

    Dear Mr. Durant, Thank you for leaving us in the lurch on the eve of training camp and stealing 70K like a thief in the night. Thank you for talking s*** about our team and fans on twitter which surely burnt all bridges and any chance the team would ever want your pathetic green tinted ass in blue & gold. For if you werent such an unprofessional POS we may never have uncovered the golden boy Chris Streveler. May your shadow never darken the earth outside the borders of saskatchewan. Sincerely Bomber fans.

    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

    Back Up QB

    My name is Bud Ross and I'm Alex Ross' grandfather. The competition for the QB backup slot at training camp will be intense. Here's a brief introduction of Alex with some history: As a freshman at Alpharetta High school, Alpharetta, Ga., he led the freshman team to an undefeated season. Coaching changes at Alpharetta, prompted him to transfer To Buford High School, Buford, Ga. Because of transfer rules, he couldn’t play varsity until his junior year. He led Buford to Georgia State championships his junior and senior years. He virtually owns the record book at Coastal Carolina University. He thinks, lives, and breathes football. Happy to be on board, Bud Ross

    Training Camp 2018

    I was there yesterday...cold in those stands. Most of the day was teaching so everything was split up in segments on the field, e.g. linemen one area, defence another and so on. When I first got there our drafted kicker Felix Menard-Briere was on the field by himself. He was kicking field goals from the 55 yard line. The first 3 or 4 fell at the 5 yard line, but the rest went through the posts easily and was very accurate. Not quite sure about his punting though. He was on the field all practice running the end zone by himself. There are so many receivers in camp and so many Canadians for a change, pretty much focused on them when they were actually doing something to watch, which was not too often...but saw a lot of potential out there, much more than some previous seasons. Notables Donteea Dye #77 very interesting...good hands small and quick and very athletic Tylor Henry national did not look out of place Rashaun Simonize national #13...hmmm...big and fast, can see why he had an NFL look. Right now? not yet sold on his hands...lots of potential there for sure, but what good is a receiver if they are not reliable? Johnny Augustine #35, National, fast and strong, appears to have great hands out of the backfield and would be a load on 2nd and short. Was very impressed with him. Can't believe he wasn't drafted and then Edmonton signed him last year. Maybe something we don't know? Tyrone Pierre national #73, is big and strong looking and appears to have good hands and is fast enough caught virtually everything thrown his way Brendon Thera-Plamondon national also did not look out of place Corey Washington #6 Int...Looks very good and made some nice catches. Looks like we let the right Washington go Myles White Int #14 is really quick and has excellent hands, defensive backs would have hands full with him, sort of like a dressler type Drew Wolitarsky #82 national...looks much improved from last year, rooting for him. Didn't pay to much attention to the Qb's, but Strevelor is big and athletic and looks to have a quick release and strong arm. Ross looked good as well, will be interesting who plants themselves in the #2 spot. Also didn't pay too much attention to the D, but did see some nice interceptions and looks like there is plenty of speed. Only glad that Sam Hurl is gone, but if the defence runs the same way as last year, only improved skill levels from the defence will save the job of Richie Hall. Sorry I couldn't have done better but it was mostly a teaching practice

    TIDBITS - CJOB Special. (Shorthand version) Walters Moving on from Dressler Flanders - want more return ability - will see. Matthews - he’s focused on NFL, but ‘could’ end up here. O’Shea - regrets losing ‘good’ people, football and otherwise. Jefferson will fit right in. Intrigued to see him play. Ultra competitive West. Negotiations- players will work hard to get what they want. Better partnership and communication now. Couture ready? Yes. Gray will compete. No doubt OL can be as good. TC will determine who’s who and where they play. Streveler- expand his roll..still Matt’s team. Augustine - will have to work on ST & protection. Will be competition 2 spots open on Rec. Petermann & Simonize - both improved. Knox to Wilson. Wilson was slated for MLB. Mexican player in camp? Looking at it. Globalization- to improve revenue streams. Likes the big thinking. Nichols knee injury? Into good training. No knee concerns. Wants to be more consistent. Harris - doesn’t know where the money’s coming from when asked of teams signing Free Agents. Brown & Tait - negotiations? Brown brings up a fund for injuries. Tait - guranteed contracts? No go. Pie is too small. Sask. - Tait says it all depends on Collaros...otherwise - yeesh Brown says they’re going to be terrible and hopes they’re terrible.

    Mini-camp info - April 24-26

    some observations... LB's Gause ...thick..fast ..agile and looks to be front runner as the MLB..or at the least the DI spot. For a bigger guy very agile and capable of covering sideline to sideline as he showed in skelly...has a powerul jab/punch and would have no issue scrapping along line and shedding blocks to stuff the run...very impressed Wilson too..very similar but not as agile...but plays with confidence..as did Gause. Not as quick as Gause but would have no issue covering a back in the flats and playing sideline to sideline...I would say him and Gause are prime candidate for the MLB role and I think Gause is the better,,,he's just darn good Jones is not as quick and not as agile..but solidly built...practices like this are hard to judge a guys true worth, but he is behind the two I mentioned..though he looks to be a guy who could lay the lumber. Be interesting TC and if we roll all import at Linebacker i could truly see JSK/Gause and Legget/Fenner with Wilson or maybe Wild as the extra...if we able to roster wise have all those guys that be sweet but one of Wilson/wild i think will be PR'd or cut DB's Hate to Roc Carmichale a guy but Earl Wolff will start...smooth..savy pro who has extra greasy swivel to him and can just manouver and adjust at will to put himself in position to just make plays...and he is solid too...I actually wouldn't be surprised to see him at SAM too...he one way or another will be on the roster and a guy who can play..and excell at CB/HB/SAM...not sure why he isn't stlll in the NFL...BUt it's our gain..guy is legit...just knows where he is and where things were headed and has nose for the ball Bingham too also impressed...looked confident and has a real knack for arriving the ame time as the ball and busting things up...didn't give up much cushion and can really see him fitting in this defense as a ball hawk..With him..Wolff..Fenner..Leggett..Randle...i see it being a tough camp for one of..if not any of Fogg..Gaitor or Clarke sticking...gonna be a good battle...nobody else really stood out, but again...was watching multiple things going on so its tough. receivers...man if we could have this ratio thing cleared up to start 4 imports we have some talent to choose from with options to start4 and have 2 back-ups on roster not named Lankford Best of group is Stevens by far..silky smooth...fast and just has ability to seperate easily..and often....he can run his routes and cut like Denmark could without gearing down but is big and can win battles for the ball...how he isn't kept around would be troubling. Never seen him drop a thing and everything he does just looks polished Same can be said about C Washignton...big..knows how to use that body and he is very quick for a dude his size..real nice hands and with this feild size..already seems to know where to find the seams and get the ball in stride...he could cause all kinds of havoc in the middle third of the field... Can also see why Myles White was kept all yr..and brough back...lightning in a bottle and is so fast..out of his cuts..and once ball hits his hands..which are real good..best route runner out there..has a fifth gear he can jump into on the fly and tracks balls better than I have seen here in a long while..I hope he gets to show his return abilities becuse he has them too and can be a reason for us to be abe to roster hopefully 2 import receivers as a backup on game day... LDW as well still has to be in the conversation..he has gained some size and looks more comfortable and polished...and his route running is much improved..he runs with meaning and purpose now it seems...confidence a familiarity does that..I also noticed he did some work on technique and is now a hand catcher as opposed to using his body as much..good on him as it allows receivers to play with speed better (which he has ample amounts of )and catch balls in stride... I also noticed A.J Coney...he is quick and runs sharp routes and once ball is in his hands seems to be a threat to bust a big play...could be a camp dark horse...not sure if he is a returner..but that could be an ace in the hole for him Anyway thats my opinions and thiughts..feel free to comment or rip it apart hahahaha

    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.

    Training Camp 2018

    Saw what a beautiful day it was going to be and took a vacation day. Took in Bomber training camp this morning. Bringing a 2 year old (some might have seen him wanting to get onto the football field) and a 3 week old there, I wasn't able to watch a ton...and let's be honest, we're all there to watch the 1 on 1s. You can definitely see the polish and level that the new guys (Thompkins and Reuben) bring to camp. Guys like Coney and Dye, who may have been the front runners to try to get a spot on the roster (or at least be the "next guy up") didn't impress me too much, and I couldn't see them being there in the end. That said, Myles White is the real deal. Looked uncoverable in the one on ones. He might not have been drawing Randle in coverage, but he was making the guy he was lining up against look silly pretty routinely. Was also lining up to return kicks. He's my pick to make the team. Canadian receivers: Daniel Petermann. What can you say. He is looking like a training camp superstar. Demski wasn't taking too many reps this practice and Petermann made play after play after play. Couple deep balls, some catches in the middle. Super excited about him. Simonise looked real good and even Henry is looking much better this year. Don't know how many reps Wolitarsky had. Pierre was helping with the receivers (off crutches I guess) along with Corey Washington (imp). Overall the receivers are looking darn good. After the receivers, the player that really stood out to me in special teams drills was Jacob Firlotte. He was getting down the field pretty quick and has an intriguing size to him. Dark horse? Quarterbacks...I think they all had their moments. In Skele I think you'd give the edge to Ross for processing the field much quicker than Streveler. Not unexpected. Streveler made some nice throws as well. Mention to Faith Ekakite who took the time to walk over to my 2 year old and give him a fist bump. By the end of practice, my little guy was way overtired but I think he had fun.

    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...

    Some thoughts...Firstly no sense to jump to judgement of doom and gloom due to loss as well as there wouldn't have been a reverse jump to judgment if we won...you have to give it a game or two, and ones where you don't stop and go with delays 2 times. Reilly will do what he did again to other teams as he has before to us and others..thats why he is League MVP. The defense wasn't that bad...on the first long TD Randle had great coverage and actually got toe tangled when he went to make a play on ball and fell..you couldn't ask for better coverage and it was a great all around play...as well as the 2 point convert...Gaitor had great position and was a phenominal play and one 9 times out of 10 that receiver wouldn't have made...luck sometimes goes against you. The defense will be good and when settled in...not an issue..Biggie although he Hurl'd it on one play made several plays that last years MLB could never dream of..and Reilly was his slimy greasy self and several of his escapes would have been sacks against anyone else. Streveler played good all things considered...first game...new to CFL..conditions and delays and put us in a spot to win...he will get better so future there is looking good. He's smart and guaranteed he will not make same mistakes again...and really the pick Sherritt got was a horshoe up the butt play too...not so much a QB error...Wolitowski too if more sesoned would have came back for the ball a bit more to attack it as opposed to let it come to him. Also I am not one of them "what if" type of guys but if Nichols was in there we win handily...he rips apart that secondary and the defense is off the field probably at least 5 mins less...if not more, as we would have controlled the game more and kept Reilly off the field...not to mention if Medlock didn't eff up that one FG the game is most likely tied or we possibly win...lots of positives and negatives to take out of the game. Lets reserve judgement until after the next 2 games where I would be shocked we aren't sitting at 2-1

    First Eskimo touch.....Robinson guy runs back punt 95 yds for TD...... Nichols getting some pressure and pops, early....... Randle fights receiver for ball...Clarke guy grabs INT..... Harris takes screen and rips a run, for a couple of first downs.... Nichols then hits Bowman in end zone, for 15 yd TD pass Zach Cline come in to QB the Esks.....sacked on first snap.... ..then chucks up 50 yd sideline pass.... D. Adams draws long PI call for about 50 yards..... Bowman can sure find his way open against zone D.... Medlock makes it 10-7 Robinson not getting much ground, since his TD return...... Jake Thomas flushes QB out of pocket.....Opo gets the sack Thomas then clobbers Cline, who scrambled out of the pocket.... Nichols overthrows Bowman couple of times..... One which turns into an INT, with a long return.... ...but Bowman will be a key component of this O. Cline looking shaky, since the Thomas hit...... Taking a sack from Roh....doesn't help Constant pass rush from the Blue D.... AJ Coney returns a missed FG 65 yards..... Demski catches his 1st as a Bomber..... ...then draws a PI call.... Medlock 45 yds, into the wind...makes 13-7 ...but game really more lopsided than that.. Esks doing nothing on O....their OL getting killed.... Nichols departs....enter Alex Ross.... ...who looks a little nervous in the service.... Danny O'Brian guy now the QB for Esks....... Chris Streveler now at the controls for the Blue. ....hits Wolitarsky for first down, then Adams... Ach du Lieber! Augustine bust up the gut 17 yds for TD.. 20-10....score starting to look....more like it. Opo and Roh, still bringing pressure... Ross rushing things a bit....couple of bad under throws... 2nd half....need to really peruse that ole roster sheet.... Streveler starts 2nd half at QB...scrambles for first down. Simonise makes good leaping catch. The toss/sweep running plays.....could use some work.. Menard-Briere guy makes it 23-10. Two scoring drives for Streveler. Announced crowd of 23,034. Nice try. Streveler throws it up for White, who wins jump ball... ...then turns on the burners and goes 85 yds for the TD Streveler is 7 for 7 and has put 17 points up on the board Thought Ross was supposed to be the experienced guy? Doesn't matter which QB in for Esks....they are all getting the bum's rush. Augustine still running hard.....guy has some pop. Even with reserves in....Bomber D shows plenty of speed... 2nd string officials have some problems with ball placement.... 2nd string scoreboard person...gives Esks a Bomber punt single.. At this point, Eskimo OL holding and tackling, all over the place.. Streveler has nice run up the middle...but doesn't protect ball - fumble. Bomber backup OL doing pretty good work on the run game. Everybody else getting pressure...so Trent Corney gets in on the act.. RB Thomas has some pretty good wheels... Now DE Sam Montgomery make a couple of plays.... Menard-Briere hits a low liner to make it 33-13. This O&S is a bit bigger that I anticipated... So is the gin.

    Practise Observations

    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

    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.

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......

    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.

Not sure if salvation is around the corner ..but at least I know, the gin is.....

    Chris Streveler is a former NCAA QB who came straight to the CFL. 10/10 in his first preseason game. OK. What else? Streveler attended Marian Central Catholic High School in Woodstock, Ill. and he led them to an 11-1 record and conference championships as both a junior and a senior. He was named conference Player of the Year in 2011 and 2012 and was a first-team all-state selection in 2012 and was recognized as Academic All-State in 2011 and 2012 and named team MVP. High school highlights: After high school, Streveler signed with the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers program. The Gophers play at the highest level of college football, Division I FBS, in the Big Ten conference. He was a backup in his freshman year and went 4/11 with 1 TD and 1 INT. In 2015 the team moved him to wide receiver. Following 2015, he transferred to the University of South Dakota to get some playing time at QB. The University of South Dakota Coyotes play in Division I FCS, the second highest level of college football, between Division I FBS and Division II. Stefan Logan played there too... a long time ago. In 10 games in 2016, he went 164/273 (60.1%) for 1947 yards, with 22 TDs and 9 INT. He also ran 161 times for 823 yards and 9 touchdowns. The team went 4-7 and missed the playoffs. In 13 games in 2017, he went 316/481 (65.7%) for 4134 yards, with 32 TDs and 8 INT. He also ran 168 times for 720 yards and 11 touchdowns. Streveler was also the runner up for the Walter Payton award... awarded to the top player in Division I FCS. The team went 8-5 and lost in the second round of the playoffs to Sam Houston State... Timothy Flanders' alma mater. Streveler had perhaps the greatest game of his college career against Sam Houston State, going 33/54 for 520 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions, to go along with 51 yards rushing with one touchdown in a losing effort. And now he is here, starting game one of the CFL season. All eyes on Winnipeg, June 14. Help us Chris Streveler. You're our only hope. ...

    His petulant retaliatory behaviour on Twitter the last two days is actually sickening. There's no defending or justifying what he's done. You're done with football...? That's fine. But show some goddamned class and be a ******* man about it. What kind of self-respecting professional athlete bails on the one team who gave you the opportunity to continue your CFL career, greedily keep money you absolutely don't deserve, and then proceed to take childish digs at that very team...? What a pathetic, disgraceful, *****-made piece of ****.

    Mini-camp info - April 24-26

    Quentin Gause #42 is a very thick guy. Broke up a play in his area. Physically solid. Was probably the second heaviest guy out there, behind Goosen. Kind of a nice day within the stadium but windy as heck outside. No Durant, confirmed. Notable on the D, #37 Zavian Bingham dB, played the receivers physically and very tight breaking up plays and got a few cheers from fellow D men. He was mugging L. Washington but Wash still came up with a one handed grab. #45 Chinedu Oparuku good size and appeared eager. #19 Kylie Wilson looks like he’ll be competing for a LB position, focused. #12 not on field but #18 replaced him. Have no idea who #18 is. #16 Tyler Stewart threw the ball the hardest of all four qbs out there. 15 and 13 rounded out the qbs. #13 Nelson looked the most challenged of the qbs. #32 Cierre Wood RB is enthusiastic, fast, and hustles. Might be his schooling. He sure brought it. Receivers, good news bad news. #87 Tony Stevens has presence out there and is going to compete for a job, with Lankford and Washington. #14 Myles White grabbed a long pass and outran a couple dbs for a TD. #12 Adarius Bowman, he’s big, but, oh, hate to say it, he dropped a couple. #44 Prewitt should go home. Disinterested. all numbers on jersey are for mini camp only.

    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

    Bomber game roster: who are these guys? 2nd play from scrimmage.....Ross sacked...fumbles... Willis picks it up and rumbles for 6...... 2nd series goes better for Ross..... ...As some high percentage passing, sets up FG.... Petermann can make tough catches...... Canuck receivers will be a bigger part of this O.... .....due to simply much more skill...... Big hit on KR by T. Cooper..... Gaitor at DB, making some plays..... 2nd stringers getting some pressure on Jennings..... Simonise having couple of assignment issues...... Montgomery getting it done at DE.... Two huge Rainey KR's called back Starting OL for Lions....lots of holding Bomber run blocking, struggling..... Bennett in at QB....has some wheels.... ...but somehow, does not seem that instinctive..... ...then Bennett rolls out .....under throws a long one.... ....R. Randle makes the adjustment, for 50 yd TD catch.... Petermann fends off Odell Wills to help make that happen Trent Corney has wheels...... Montgomery still making plays..... Petermann is stripped of ball, after catch.... ...but makes terrific hustle play to recover it..... FMB bombs 52 yd FG on last play on the half.... Petermann looks like a legit playa.... BC boning themselves with 12 first half penalties...... Streveler comes in...throws it right into Willis's hands... ...good thing Odell drops it..... BC comes out with balanced drive.....TD pass to Burnham Streveler comes out and throws bad INT...returned for TD ...as that bandwagon comes to screeching halt.... 47 seconds...Boom, boom.....BC 27-13 Bomber O sputtering, so far in 2nd half.... Not much happening on Blue kick returns, either.... Burnham takes a hitch for big yards....to set up short TD 34-15. More like the score, most folks expected...... This 2nd half is somewhat gin inducing..... Not sure how to fit Montgomery in this DL rotation.... ...but he has made plays in both games.... Bombers not even attempting to throw down the field... Casher now has a couple of sacks Bomber DL rotation is going to be a team strength.... Streveler finally bombs away to K. Thompkins for TD.... 34-21 is a bit better look....considering the game lineups.... Ross kinda looks like a smoother version of Brohm..... At this stage, I look kinda like a smoother brand of gin....
