Edmonton OG's are holding like crazy...and getting away with it.

I'm glad you brought that point up.  I thought our d-line was doing a great job of pushing them back but from my eyes everyone was getting held both this week and week one.

The story to me was how poorly A Harris played. I hope this is his rock bottom game and he bounces back into top form because the season depends on it. Gutted out a win with basically no run game and two fumbles from the reining MOC. I bet he wishes he could get back out there today and redeem himself. That's going to fester for a week and look out Ottawa because Harris will be a man possessed.

GOOD teams win stinkers...how many times over the last many years have we been on the other end of these games...times have chamged and I think we have evolved now into one of the good teams now

2 wins when in both games we havn't really put it all together yet..still feeling our way and if we continue to gel and not get too cocky can conceivably see us at 5-0 when we meet Hamilton in week 7

Riders won stinkers last year, so even bad teams win stinkers. We're a good team, I know this. The evidence is overwhelming unlike the what we saw last year from the Riders.

@ the crowd issue, A thursday game right before canada long weekend is idiotic. Weekday games in general suck. Idc whose fault it is, scheduling, stadiums what not. When you have an extra day you shouldnt be having weekday games.

I wonder if only having one game then a bye week put the Bombers at a disadvantage. Could be a good amount of rust still having not played 2 previous regular season games like Edmonton. 

This.  A bye after the first game of the season likely means that the "jelling" takes just that much longer.  And even still, we won.

This is very true. I also think the Bombers could revisit their pricing structure. There's some price points that just don't sell very well.

upon further review quote Nichols re Lucky 7.... high praise.

Stopping Harris, will no longer stop the Bombers from scoring.  Grind it out, or quick strike, they can do both, The Bombers are stacked with offensive weapons.

“The later touchdown is something that, I mean, not many people in the world can turn that into a touchdown. Usually that would be a 12-13-yard gain pushed out of bounds and somehow he scored a 40-yard touchdown. He’s lightning in a bottle for sure.”

 

 

 

as usual Ed not afraid to see the warts.... He's an excellent journalist.
