  1. it's amazing how fast one can be when they just run in a straight line... but geez, they opened a hole for him and he instantly saw it and was gone... I thought that he may have gotten a penalty for taunting like he was while crossing the goal line... do they do that in the CFL, the taunting penalty? lol... but I said here, during the game, that despite that incredible run, all the while Harris being shut down in the running game, Demski wouldn't get his number called again all game long... and I was right... I hate Lapo...
  2. and I think you could sell Streve on the notion that he needs to really elevate his passing game in order to become a true starting QB1 and keep him signed in Winnipeg... get him on a new 2 or 3 year deal and with the expectation that if he progresses the team should be his by then...
  3. Magic 8 Ball says 'affirmative'
  4. this is where our interests should be if we're going to pursue a QB...
  5. thx! it was a labor of love... it was a complete frame off restoration... well I call it a restoration but it's all modern technology... tilt, cruise, power windows, locks, push to start, 4 wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, coil over shocks on all four corners, etc... here's a link to some more photos, and my other hobby, I design and build hand made wooden gear clocks, if you're interested... link to the Chevelle build
  6. hey! it's 66 here... I've already spilled my back story of who, why, and where in a thread in the discussion forum when I first joined a couple of months ago... but I always read people's user names and wonder what they mean or why they choose what they did... doesn't consume me or cost me a lot of consternation, just curious... well my user name comes from my baby and prized possession that I actually built myself, my 66 Chevelle... spent a little over 2 years and a butt load of money building her but I love her... she has a 700 hp, 540 cubic inch big block Chevrolet engine in her and can be a hand full at times, much like myself... however, she does have a Canadian sister, the Beaumount which was built and sold in Canada at your local pontiac dealerships, but I digress... so, without further hesitation and for your viewing pleasure, I give you 'the' 66 Chevelle...
  7. it is acknowledged... in the form of a pay check... after all, that's what he was employed to do... I'd bet cash money that on the job description he was handed when applying for the position that it said that there was an 'expectation to perform at a high level, a level that would be capable of winning playoff games" or something to that effect... no, I'm not going to thank or apologize because he had a good game, especially when there were many times through out the year that he failed to meet an 'acceptable' level...
  8. IF we had to settle for Nichols again next season, it would make a huge difference if we have a new OC... Nichols, with the right game plan, can be a very effective QB, one capable of winning playoff games... under Lapo there seems to be an underlying hint of Lapo not trusting Nichols as evident by the play calling and the apparent need to constantly have Harris on the wing to dump the ball off to... honestly feel that the offense would be better served by Harris staying around the pocket and blocking instead of bailing and waiting on the dump pass... sure, he's open, and there is a reason why... the whole defense is in front of him, he's 3 yds behind the LOS and in most cases the defense is less than 5 yds from the LOS... they'll give up 2 or 3 yds by allowing that completion... much better for them to pressure Nichols and get him to bail on the vertical, down field game and pass the ball to Harris for meaningless yds... because when it's 2nd and 8, a pass completion for 2 yards, while great for your stat line, still equals punt... there is a reason why a QB can have the fewest throwing yards in the league but have the high QB efficiency rating... fewest INTs... best TD to INT ratio... but you're probably going to lose more games than your peers...
  9. you say and think that, but were we? after all, the first 9 games of the season, and the only 9 that Nichols played, 7 of those 9 games were against 4 teams that a) finished as the bottom 2 of each division, and b) didn't make the playoffs... but regardless, unless there is a change at OC and will have to settle once again for a Nichols/Streveler led team... I don't see us being able to attract a proven QB like Masoli while Lapo is the OC... same reason why we can't attract 'big name' receivers, nobody wants to play in the 'Dink & Dunk' system... at least not by choice...
  10. that's cordial of you, Mark, thanks! I plan on hanging here, the place has a good vibe...
  11. geez... where to start? how about with... 1) maybe you shouldn't expect to win a game when you score 20 or fewer points, but, you should expect to win a game when the last time your offense touches the ball they put together a 4th quarter, 63 yd, 6 min 35 sec touchdown scoring drive, that included 4 first downs, that gave your team the lead while leaving a mere 3:18 left to play in the game... not to mention, Medlock follows up the scoring drive with a 79 yd kickoff that found the Riders being their drive on their own 5 yard line... yeah, I expect to win that game... 2) maybe you shouldn't expect to win a game when you score 20 or fewer points but you do realize that this game was won by a team that scored fewer than 20 pts (19-17), don't you? maybe we should have been awarded that win because they shouldn't expect to win a game with fewer than 20 pts... that seems only fair... 3) maybe you shouldn't expect to win a game when you score 20 or fewer points but that happened 11 times during the 2019 season... if you increase that number by just 1 pt to 21 pts it was accomplished 8 more times, or a total of 19 times during the season... in fact, Hamilton won a game this year by the score of 13-10... 4) 20 pts seems a bit... specific, doesn't it? why not 19 pts, or 21 pts... should you expect to win the game if you do score 21 pts instead of 20? I mean after all the entire league only averaged 24.7 pts per game this season... 4 teams had an average of 22.8 or fewer... granted, they didn't win a bunch of games but one team in that group made the playoffs with an average score of 22.6 pts per game! crazy, huh? Ottawa managed to go entire season and only average a mind numbing 17.3 pts per game! 5) would it really have made a difference if we say that the Bombers have the same exact scenario as in #1 above, but, that touchdown puts the Bombers up 36-35 with 3:18 left in the game... then the Riders have the walk off FG to win the game 38-36... would it have been the defense's fault then for losing the game? to me, and maybe it's just me, but any time your team puts together a final possession drive to take the lead, regardless of the final score or how many points were scored, the offense has done it's job and it's up to the defense to secure the win, or, if nothing else, get them the ball back with some time left on the clock to try and score again... the defense on this day did neither... 6) the Bomber's offense out scored the Riders in the second half, maybe the defense shouldn't have given up so many points in the first half! see how that works? 7) you are correct, the Bombers did not get a first down in the first quarter... that was was kind of hard to do when your defense was giving up 9 first downs in the first quarter to the other team... however, the offense did manage to get first downs when it mattered the most, that late game go ahead scoring drive (see item 1 above), which was for nothing as the defense promptly follow that up by allowing the Riders 6 first downs on the following drive to get that walk off, game winning FG... 6... SIX... VI... seis... one more than 5, but one less than 7, 6 first downs in less than 3 minutes... I could probably come up with more reasons but I'll stop at 7... I think 7 serves my side of the conversation well...
  12. at the LDC? I recall something very different and a game that the D gave back to the Riders... because, I recall that the last time the O came off the field with 3 mins to go in the 4th quarter the Bombers had the lead... the D couldn't stop them for nothing and they chewed up the whole 3 mins and left with a walk off game winning field goal...
  13. even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while...
