Still worried about our interior d-line,taking Walker out. Has Lawson done anything? Again it's early.....

I don't think Lawson was given any snaps in a game on the Dline.  Hard to say he hasn't done anything, if he hasn't been given an opportunity.

True but if he is not getting any reps to keep Thomas fresh that imo ain't a good sign.😊

we shall see how our depth stacks up for the next bit....and I kind of like it early in the season to be honest, and let the boys heal up

Couture to the 6 sucks....but better now than in late sept.....Houston I think will be just fine.

Holm coming on tho is a head scratcher....nothing about him to me says useable pro...we had better options.....same with that full back.....Oshea always has some odd roster moves, and guys brought on who dont see field and do minimal ST work...if I have one knock on him it's roster manouvering

Burtenshaw is only here for special teams.

Holm is an American DB.  I’m sure he’ll be playing lots.

should share our thunderstorm stories.... I have a few as do all prairie dwellers

 

like.    sitting in the metal/glass sunroom, watching thunderstorm over the lake, when a bolt of lightning hit the house.

drilled a small hole in the deck, but no fire. 

, moved to wpg from vancouver when I was ten...( family came along) had never experienced a thunder storm.

sitting in house during storm, lightning hit the power transformer right behind the house.

loudest sound I have heard.

best.... watching big storms over Lake Wpg, at wpg beach.

and others, but dont want to be even more boring.

It's disappointing that it's going to rain tomorrow night (probably). This will mean the crowd will be wearing jackets and you won't see the white in the lower bowl. 

I'll be dry under the awning, in case you were worried. 

I got selected for the pre-game sideline experience for this game... I will not be dry! 😂

You're surprised a 5 year starter from the US who runs a 4.4 and was invited to 2 NFL rookie camps was invited to camp? 😂

Verdict is still out on Holm. Not sure how much we see of him tonight to be honest.

That game was a blast. Had the next day off and my Dad is retired, only bad thing was the result.

That was a pretty great time. What's even more disappointing is that the CFL changed the rules....this game could he over by half time. Need to start quick

I have a good feeling about Holm. Not sure why.

I thought this was a joke... nope, that's actually what Evan Holm looks like... I guess a DB that looks like a kicker should have lots to prove 😁
