Re: Get rid of Buck Pierce (Kidding!)

If Ottawa ever gets its act together and can field a team in the not too distant future, than JJ would make a nice expansion team QB.

Re: Stubler out The Don in

Don was on Prime Time Sports yesterday (via phone) and was telling Bob McCowan how his struggles with anxiety caused him to leave football but medication now helps him return to football. Then Bob revealed that he has something similar in that he gets severe anxiety in crowds. That got Don thinking ...

Re: Stubler out The Don in

Just watched that Matthews clip and he was talking about switching Pinball from RB/KR to pass receiver and doing it got Pinball on the field full time. Logan or Roberts are going to do the same thing if both are to be on the field at the same time when in single back formation. BTW didn't Matthews l...

Re: CFL Panic Button?

I agree with Big Time big time! IMO it is best to fire a coach when you have a choice of quality replacements to choose from. So getting Matthews makes sense and doesn't allow him to go to Hamilton or Winnipeg.

Re: Don Matthews.....

Matthews coaching the Argos is certainly a shocker but great for CFL fans. While I don't like Stubler, especially his sideline antics, I think a rookie head coach at least deserves a chance to complete one season. This might temper my desire to have the Lions make the playoff crossover to the Easter...

Re: Finally a decent commercial

Future shop does have some funny commercials sometimes. The second time the KJ & JL came on I called my gf in from the kitchen to watch it.

Re: The Horse Collar Tackle

I think the call is made based on the violence of the hit more than the position of the defenders hands.

Re: Lions 35 - Cats 12 Post Game Stats and Comments

IMO it was a case of the best D line (Lions) vs the worst O line. What is with Hamilton's play calling... under utilizing Jesse Lumsden is crazy. Lumsden is the best back in the league because he has the speed of a halfback and the power of a fullback and can block. Even if Cats weren't going to giv...

Re: Midseason stats

A lot of the time last year the Lions played on a short field due to the Defense getting so many take aways. The short field also means less time of possession and less total rushing yards.

It's official, Roberts is a Lion and Smith is a Bomber

Just reported on TSN.ca. I hope Smith as a Bomber doesn't backfire Lions attempt to make the playoffs via the crossover.

Re: Who Is Running Our Offence??

I would have liked to have seen the game end with a play action, roll out and throw to the tight end.

Re: Smith Traded, Winnipeg's Roberts traded....

Smith's no show on the side lines at the Bob Ackles tribute game must have ticked off Wally more than most of us had figured. The only way to get Smith/Logan or Roberts/Logan on the field at the same time is to release Kavil Hill and have one of the RBs play as a receiver in single back formations. ...

Anyone else notice the siren during Bombers/riders game?

I thought it was illegal but several times when Bombers were on offense there was a siren blaring during the snap count. It didn't seem to affect the bombers but it got annoying to hear while watching the game on TV. Anyways, glad the Riders won because it helps the Lions quest for the playoff cross...

Re: Marcus Crandell released

I'm guessing that the Argos will sign Crandell as a back up but didn't trade for him because of his salary.

Re: What Would You Rather See Tonight?

IMO in oder to win the Lions need a return of the shut down D. Difficult to do the way AC and Avon Colbourne are playing. In a lot of the Lions wins last year the D gave the O a short field.
