Regular Season Bomber News

Recommended Posts

Jeff Hecht tells me he’s good to go Friday vs the #RedBlacks. Chris Matthews told me the same, adding he’s excited as it feels like his #Bombers debut once again. Mike O’Shea says all players battling nicks and bumps are “good,” but will not make a determination on anyone.

Mike O’Shea says “all players battling nicks and bumps are “good,” but will not make a determination on anyone.”

Must be frustrating as hell, knowing you have to ask the question, but also knowing you’ll get...

we only need one Canadian starting on defense to fill the ratio requirement..so if Hecht is out it will be Jones in his spot, most likely backed up with Exume and Wright whom I am certain will get on the roster either in Hechts roster spot, or Briggs....likely Briggs spot as I pretty sure Hecht won't miss any time...but if both are out then we need to fill another Canadian spot on roster...so Likely Griffiths comes on as really thats the only National reserve we have not on IR  we have unless we dress Eli

I didn't hear anyone questioning that. Just pointing out that Walters/OShea/Lapo had growing pains of their own that we went through. They have morphed into maybe the league's best trio but let's not pretend it was all smooth sailing right from the beginning. As a rookie, Walters had a terrible first year. Drew Willy....need I say more. Since then he has redeemed himself.

I just find it disingenuous when INSIDERS from the Bombers (unless it's Lapo) feel the need to take swipes at a GM that is 5 years removed from here. Especially, when they were a part of the brain trust he relied on....and don't give me this crap that Mack just did whatever he wanted on draft day. He never scouted a NAT EVER. He was going off the scouting reports handed to him by one Kyle Walters.

If Walters is salty about Mack picking Pencer all those years ago he shouldn't have provided the name with a glowing endorsement.

If memory serves, this was about the time that Kongbo was projected to be ready to come off the IR. That would be nice and nicer yet if he lives up to expectations.

I don't have many expectations so the bar for me isn't very high.

Yes, unfortunately O Shea saying someone is "good to go" means nothing...until you actually see the guy on the field.

sigh...

I doubt they would have taken 2nds for Ray. Their ask would likely have been for a starting NAT and more. We were not in a position to part with NAT talent.

Well in the end they got Jyles, Grant Shaw and a 1st.

Bombers traded those 2nd rounders for 3rd overall pick.

Motivated? Yeah let’s have a breakout game, eh Chris Matthews..

“So it’s all about going out there and making it happen, man. Things happen, it’s a rough start for me but hopefully that was the final one that made me sit down and now I can go out there and actually contribute the way I want to contribute.”

Fair enough. Mack was a total goof, no doubt about it. I just think it is classless piling on if this Insider report came from anyone currently with the Bombers. Be professional..Macks been gone for 5 years.

It’s just nice not to have to listen to ‘well we never had a chance anyway’ excuses anymore

You make a good point about the Insiders columns coming across as disingenuous quotes from front office personnel and coaches who have some type of gripe. However, I have to admit, I enjoy reading it each week. Gives me a bit of glimpse behind the curtain, in the locker room. To me it's a welcome change from the bland coverage we get from team beat writers, who basically select from a menu of coach and player quotes each week, and provide very few insight, analysis or opinion pieces.

Morrison was selected in the fourth round (29th overall) of the 2017 CFL Draft. He was also a member of the 2015 Vanier Cup-champion UBC team. Morrison missed the 2018 season because of an injury.

Williams signed as an undrafted free agent with the Toronto Argonauts on January 22, 2016 and spent the year on the Argonauts' practice roster. He was released by the Argonauts on June 8, 2019 as part of final training camp cuts.[3]
