  1. Indeed this is true. And I loved the lights-out hits McGuire delivered in 2019 on more than one defender on FG kick protection. It'll be interesting to see how the QBs develop as a group under a new Co-ordinator and how buck's offence differs from Lapo. You have to think it will still feature Harris but who knows? Buck has had lots of time to think about it.
  2. Hoping McGuire can learn well under Collaros and succeed. Snagged one of McGuire's game-worn jerseys from the Grey Cup year just in case. (It was very clean, BTW)
  3. What about playing regular CFL games down south for the 2021 season and just televising them back home? XFL is out of the picture this season. But CFL needs gate revenue. How can that happen when COVID restrictions are so tight and patchwork across Canada? So Bombers and CFLs other teams play in XFL stadiums this season in front of US fans. That way they can earn some ticket money at the gate as it would be a novelty for American football fans who aren't so COVID shy/restricted. I'd be OK with that. Of course I'd prefer to be sitting at IGF but somehow I don't think it'll happen this year - and so CFL plays 2021 season - just not in the usual places.
  4. Looks like Eagles is getting most votes so far .... Excrement is not an option. Which is too bad because if it were, we could stack the vote. I bet even alot of Sask and Calgary fans would be on board.
  5. The Edmonton Football Team says it has a shortlist of seven candidates for its new name. Elk, Evergreens, Evergolds, Eclipse, Elkhounds, Eagles and Elements are listed as possibilities on an online survey released Monday. The CFL team dropped the name Eskimos last year. It followed a similar decision by the NFL’s Washington team as pressure mounts on teams to eliminate racist or stereotypical names. https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/edmonton-football-team-asks-fans-to-vote-on-7-possible-names-1.5299846 I've got one more: The Edmonton Excrement
  6. We lost JFG to free agency when he signed with Ottawa in 2018. He didn't do much there and was released last August. I remember him making a few clutch grabs for the Bombers when he was here. I agree with you on Petermann - hope we use him more! And then we've got Woli who re-upped.
  7. I'd put Nichols on the same career trajectory as Travis Lulay: the injuries pile up and eventually you settle for backup status. If you compare Lulay's CFL stats to Nichols they're pretty similar. Both had multiple seasons where they missed a bunch of games due to injury. To me, Lulay was more mobile and effective with his feet and showed better escapability. Nichols TD to INT percentage looks to be slightly better, after all he is the Game Manager. But the comparison is pretty close. Suggests Nichols may have 2 more years in the CFL, depending on whether he can throw the ball at this level following his shoulder injury: https://www.cfl.ca/players/travis-lulay/114942/ https://www.cfl.ca/players/matt-nichols/157693/
  8. Loved watching him play in Blue & Gold - such an exciting, dynamic player. Hope he gets a real chance to show his skills down south.
  9. Answering my own question .... I guess Dave Dickenson was the last QB to start in the CFL and then get a nod from the NFL. His NFL stats: 2001 SD 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 2002 SEA 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 2002 MIA 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 2002 DET 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0.0 0 0 0
  10. Who was the last QB to start his pro career in Canada and subsequently signed as a QB in the NFL? Jeff Garcia? Farhan Lalji says as many at 8 NFL teams interested in Chris Streveler, sounds like he's as good as gone: https://www.tsn.ca/cfl/video/nfl-workout-watch-qb-chris-streveler~1873125
  11. What's the status of Nichols throwing shoulder, anyone? Is he throwing with velocity yet? To me, he's always had a bit of a noodle arm and now the shoulder is an unknown post-surgery QB shoulder. I thought I read somewhere he may not be ready for TC. Man, if we lose Strev to the NFL there are going to be lots of question marks around the QB prospects here in 2020. Might have to dust off Buck.
  12. Chris Streveler named South Dakota's Sports Celebrity of the Year: https://rapidcityjournal.com/sports/chris-streveler-nash-hutmacher-among-the-state-s-top-ahtletes/article_3e85e6ed-56e7-5c5c-b190-10ade1e1524d.html
  13. Very happy to see Johnny Augustine extended. Didn't think it would happen. Hopefully he gets to carry the rock plenty in 2020.
