Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Bombers going into the game allowed ST returns like no other CFL team. Yet the Lions with Rainey were held in check. Bombers are even worse than the Lions in giving up the big play were able to hold the Lions vaunted receiving corps in check. O'Shea who is known for trick plays allowed Wally to use ...

Re: Trade deadline -Lions sellers?

It isn't about BC so much, more on a contender looking to fill an injury or glaring weakness. BC may have the right piece to fill a need, but not sure any team is in real need other than Edmonton and they are BC's only legit chance to catch IMO.

Re: Chris Williams

Wally was hesitant on the CW front when posed the question on whether to replace him in the lineup on 3down nation. I don't understand how an elite receiver like Williams can't offer a play or two that he ran on his previous teams offense into the Lions. Even the dropped TD wasn't likely designed fo...

Re: RedBlacks 30 - Lions 25, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Disgraceful performance, about what one might expect when amateurs (coaches, players and officials) play against professionals. While I appreciate his past efforts, I do NOT think Wally should return next year. If it were my team, I would clean out the entire coaching staff tomorrow. In a game full...

Re: Redblacks at Lions Oct. 7, 2017

Wally's lame challenge cost him a challenge on the catch fumble recovery. Justly terrible game mgt once again.

Gaitor may want to see a paramedic, he is burned so often. Crazy amount of times he has been burned.

Re: Player transactions

DE Ken Boatright released this morning by the club. DH :cool: I thought that the Lions liked Boatrights play. OTOH they do have a lot of D linemen, just none that are dominate. :bang: Yes, the arrival of Alex Bazzie pushed the other defensive ends down the depth chart. I'm somewhat surprised, thoug...

Re: Lions sign 5 players to practice roster

these guys are only coming in for tryouts ... then they will be offered next year Training camp spots if they show well ... these guys will not even see the field unless we have massive injuries; no airlifts anymore the league is too good. Bingo! We have a winner. Exactly right. One of the receiver...

Re: CFL Games of Week 15, September 29 -- September 30

Is it just me or are the Bombers the best team to watch right now. I don't say that lightly either as I still hold a strong dislike from the 80's Cal Murphy era to the present. I love the ferocious D and if they had a n upgrade on QB they would be on par with the Stamps. That said their games for th...

Re: Is Wally Staying around in 2018?

Braley is looking for a financially sound owner who has an appreciation for the Lions history/commmunity. That is a limited list if there is a list at all that would want to tie their name and money to that purchase. The Lions franchise is best described as a roller coaster ride, quick to top and ri...

Re: TiCats 24 - Lions 23, Post-Game Stats and Comments

One shudders to think of what the frustration level might be here if not for the 2011 miracle cup. Understand what you're getting at, but I personally wouldn't call the 2011 Cup a "miracle". I mean, coming back from 0-5 was amazing, but with the enormous talent the Lions had in every single positio...

Re: TiCats 24 - Lions 23, Post-Game Stats and Comments

This team hasn't figured out a lot of things. I'm still waiting for the HC to realize that the Lions are a bad team, apparently that is when trick plays will come out of the playbook. I'm sitting here enjoying the inspired play both the Riders and Stamps are providing. My family who grew up watchin...

Sigh, the worst record in the league, new coach, time zone disadvantage with a late start. C an this team be any more inept.
Can't even blame the OL this game, just the OC.

Lions need to execute now, but it isn't the players.

Re: Bazzie signs with Lions

Not to mention the emergence of Micah ("Owie") Awe. Say what you want about his hitting style in Calgary, he's going to definitely have the attention of players and coaches now. Guys are going to have their head on a swivel when catching a ball on his side of the field. He and Solly are the Nigeria...
