  1. I have numbers back to 2016. Teams have been successful 29/55 (52.7%). 2016 2017 2018 2019
  2. Justin Medlock has made 58 consecutive field goals from inside the 40 yard line. Based on my research, it appears as though Paul McCallum holds the CFL record with 59 consecutive field goals inside the 40 yard line (2010-2012). Others on the list include Sean Whyte 57 (2015-2018), Justin Medlock 50 (2015-2017) & Lewis Ward 49 (2018-2019) I have submitted this to Steve Daniel of the CFL for consideration.
  3. The team record that Chris Streveler 'broke' dates back to 1956. John 'Buddy' Leake gained 633 yards rushing that year. Buddy Leake was a starting HB for all 16 games in 1956 and also served as the backup QB to Eagle Day. Next on the list is Kenny Ploen who had 541 yards rushing in 1960. When not playing QB, Ploen shifted to safety. Others on the list include: Matt Dunigan 517 yards (1993), Eagle Day 477 yards (1956) & Steven Jyles 452 yards (2010). * Leo Lewis did play some QB in 1959 and served as the backup QB for the playoffs & GC. He had 730 yards rushing in 1959.
  4. Lou Adelman wore #1 for the Winnipegs 1930-1937. Adelman started his career with the Tammany Tigers in 1924 and was a member of the 1925 team that played in the Grey Cup. When the Winnipeg won in 1935, Adelman was the only active player who remained from that team. Although few all-star nominations exist from that era, Adelman was unofficially delcared an all-star on numerous occasions (even in eastern Canada) Officially, #1 was taken out of circulation at Adelman's request and would only be re-issued when Adelman's son was old enough to join the team. Adelman moved to California in 1945 but the number remained out of circulation. Lou Adelman played one game (1 play) in 1939 so that he could qualify for the playoffs. The Blue Bombers did not have a #1 available for Adelman so he wore #53 in that game. Adelman did wear #1 in a 1941 exhibition game against the Columbus Bulls and again in 1953 when the Blue Bombers played the Liniment Bowl against the Calgary Stampeders (old-timer game). Adelman did enquire about the #1 in 1953 and he was told that no one had worn the number since he retired. The Blue Bombers did not issue single digit number through much of their history (1951-1970).
  5. #11 has been out of circulation for the most part since 1967. It was worn during the pre-season in '69 & '70 because the Bombers only had a limited number of jerseys available. In that era the only numbers that the Blue Bombers had prepared 10-19 were 10, 11, 12 & 14. Harry Knight wore #11 on October 26, 1975 - that was an Alberta Golden Bears jersey so technically it doesn't count. #28 was last worn by Wylie Turner in 1986. It was taken out of circulation in 1987. #63 was last worn by Chris Walby in 1996. #75 was last worn by Stan Mikawos in 1986. It was taken out of circulation in 1987 - Mikawos changed to #77 #85 was last worn by Milt Stegall in 2008. #97 has been worn in a pair of regular season games by Ivan Brown (2015). It has also been assigned to a handful of players in pre-season as well as a practice roster player. #6 was taken out of circulation 2003-2009. In 2010 Frank Wilczynski was assigned #6 as a practice roster player. It was officially reinstated in 2013 for Brett Cameron. #1 was taken out of circulation 1938-1983. Todd Hons was assigned #1 in 1984-1985. Jeff Jenkins in 1988 was the first to wear #1 in a regular season game in over 50 years.
  6. Here are the results from the Blue Bombers 4th quarter drives in 2019 Please note that this chart only includes drives that started in the 4th quarter. It does not include drives that may have started in Q3 and finished in Q4.
  7. I prepared the charts for previous seasons prior to the start of the season. At that point, only active QBs were relevant. Here are the numbers for the retired QBs. A few factors got me looking into a drive based approach rather than the traditional passing stats 1. There were many drives where QBs would go 3 for 3, 4 for 4 etc. and the drive would result in a punt. The completion percentage was great but the result was bad. 2. The pass efficiency rating focuses on TD passes. A drive that ends in a TD rush is just as significant as a drive that ends in a TD pass. 3. Over the past decade, we have seen the role of a situational QB flourish. A number of TD drives end with a backup QB punching the ball into the end zone, taking any opportunity for a TD pass out of the hands of the drive QB.
  8. I have been tracking drive based numbers since 2015. The key measurements (in my opinion) are points per drive and yards per drive. Here are the numbers for the active CFL QBs who have been around since 2015 And here are the results through 3 weeks of the 2019 season
  9. For equipment manager it might be Harold "Torchy" Pechet (1948). The Blue Bombers were short players in 1948 and the team agreed to allow Pechet to dress for the August 28 game against Saskatchewan. It was Pechet's childhood dream to dress for the Blue Bombers.
  10. Here are some games played details for the players who played in the 1930's & 1940's Bill Ceretti missed the 1942 season with a broken wrist Les Lear's 1937 regular season lasted 1 play. He entered the game to start the 2nd quarter and he was ejected for fighting. Lou Mogul was primarily a middle wing (tackle) during his career.
  11. I am a little late to the dance but I thought that I would share some information on Lou Adelman. Adelman played the snapback/centre position for his entire career (note: he played middle wing in 1 game in 1931). During this era, the centre was considered to be the second most important position on the field after the QB. Teams would often line up 2 or 3 players in a spread behind centre. It was up to the centre to snap the ball accurately to the correct player without tipping off the opposing team as to which player was receiving the ball. Adelman always topped any "informal" list of all-stars during his career. For people who watched football throughout Canada, Adelman was often considered to be one of the tops in the country. Adelman's nickname was Rosy / Rosey / Rosie. This stems from one of his first football practices when he was a kid. The centre from the previous season was a kid named Rosenthal. The Coach referred to Adelman as "Rosy" and the name stuck. After his career, the Blue Bombers took Adelman's #1 out of circulation. It was not assigned to another player until the 1980's Disclaimer: my vote would have been for John Bonk but Adelman would have been a close second.
  12. For punter, I would include Jack Jacobs, Charlie Shepard, Ed Ulmer, Bernie Ruoff, Bob Cameron - possibly add Russ Rebholz, Jack Delveaux, Walt McKee, Jon Ryan, Mike Renaud, Justin Medlock For kicker, I would include Gerry James, Don Jonas, Bernie Ruoff, Trevor Kennerd, Troy Westwood, Justin Palardy, Justin Medlock - possibly add Greg Kabat, Bud Korchak, Alexis Serna
  13. Reg Threlfall was also Coach of the 1942 & 1943 Winnipeg RCAF Bombers who lost in the Grey Cup each year. The 1942 & 1943 RCAF Bombers teams are part of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers history. The Blue Bombers suspended operations on August 24, 1944 when the team learned that RCAF members were no longer permitted to play on a civilian team. Note: In 1942, Threlfall was Manager of the Winnipeg City League. He would visit the practices of all 3 teams (Bombers - civilians; RCAF Flyers - servicemen; Manitoba Bisons - students & civilians). Threlfall was Coach of the Winnipeg RCAF Bombers (combined team) who played in the west final and Grey Cup. Threlfall once claimed that the 1940 Winnipeg Blue Bombers was the best team he ever coached. The rules dispute in play in 1940 was regarding blocking down field. The WCRFU (which included the WIFU) had liberal blocking rules which permitted linemen to block downfield and backfielders to block up to the line of scrimage. The CRU (governing body of football in Canada which regulated the eastern playoffs and Grey Cup) only allowed linemen to block on the line and backfielders could only block in the backfield. The CRU made it known prior to the 1939 Grey Cup that unified rules would have to be in place prior to the 1940 Grey Cup if the WCRFU wanted to enter a team. Negotiations continued up to November 1940 without success. As the CRU kept a date open for an East-West Grey Cup game, it was determined that the Grey Cup in 1940 would instead be a 2 game total points series.
  14. I would remove Bud Korchak & Bud Grant from the list. Both players were better known for their offensive prowess and they played DHB when they were on defence. It is difficult to determine how effective Jeff Nicklin & Bud Marquardt were on defence. Based on game story information from newspapers, both players were quite involved on offence and special teams. Note: during the early days of the WIFU there were 3 primary ways to score a single. Deadline kick (ball had to bounce in bounds first) Touch in Goal (conceded single) Rouge (returner was tackled in end zone) From 1936-1945, the WIFU credited the point on a rouge to the player making the tackle (not the kicker). Nicklin & Marquardt were credited with several rouges during their careers. Here are some Grey Cup statistics for Herb Gray and Cec Luining Herb Gray 1957 - 3 DT / 1958 - 5 DT, 1 QBS / 1959 - 7 DT, 1 QBS / 1961 - 8 DT, 2 QBS / 1962 - 3 DT Cec Luining 1957 - 1 DT, 1 QBS, 1 Fum Rec / 1958 - 2 DT, 1 QBS / 1959 - 4 DT / 1961 - 3DT, 1 QBS In 2011, Steve Daniel (CFL) did a comprehensive video review of all Grey Cup games dating back to 1954. During this review, additional statistics were added to the Grey Cup history including tackles, sacks & forced fumbles - based on statistical scoring rules and conventions in place in 2011. Several other stats were changed in the process. Example: Ty Jones held the record with 4 sacks in one game (1984) until this review. Grover Covington (1986) now holds the record with 5 sacks (up from 3). I do not agree with changing statistics after the fact especially as many of the these stats were scored correctly based on scoring rules and conventions in place at the time.
