Re: Stampeders 14 - Lions 7 Post Game Stats and Comments

I think the lack of a QB has been the root of our decline. Coaching hasn't been great but I firmly believe if we had a healthy Lulay or Mike Reilly we would have won at least two more games! Kevin Glenn is a career backup for a reason and that career is fading rapidly! At times it looks like a scene...

Re: Bombers vs. Lions Game Day Thread

I'm concerned that the Bombers will shut down the short passing game and we will be toast! I don't believe we've shown an effective deep, or even intermediate pass game so far! Unless that changes the Bombers D will crowd the line and take away the short pass and run game and the results will be sam...

Re: Travis Lulay -- Thoughts and Prayers

A great guy and the face of the franchise! Hope he can come back but if not, there is more to life than football.

Re: CFL Scoring on the lowest pace since 1979

Probably a combination of things but look at the injuries to and loss of marquee players and change. Lulay , Cornish and Collaros missed a lot of games. Calvillo gone with no heir apparent. Drew Willey , Bo Levi Mitchell both relatively new. I know its a team game but still I'm not too surprised sco...

Re: Lions 16 - Roughriders 20 -- Post Game Stats and Comment

Hmm. I thought Tate was declared the guy after they deemed Burris expendable? Also thought that Tate's shoulder injury and broken arm etc. led to Glenn getting the starts. I may be splitting hairs here but although Glenn got some starts he was never the Stamps starter, just the back up doing his job...

Glenn did all right in Calgary but neither Hufnagel or Dickenson saw him as anything other than a backup it would seem. If they had he'd still be there!

Re: Pass interference challenge

Seems to me it's not so much the on field officials people are crticizing as it is the ones who review the plays ! It's easy to understand a play missed at game speed ,not so much when being reviewed with multiple camera angles and slo mo! To me, the problem is the reviews have shown no consistency ...

Re: Lions 16 - Roughriders 20 -- Post Game Stats and Comment

This was a battle of the back up QB's and we lost! The turning point came when the Riders pulled their starter and we left Glenn in! Not sure if Lulay would have won the game for us, but it was clear Glenn wasn't going to. Even when he has time ,if the first read isn't there, he seems lost! As soon ...

So we are trying to attract people to cheer against us? Why not just let the Riders pump in noise?

Re: Leos/Riders Keys to the Game

Blitz, Winnipeg, Saskatchewan and BC currently have 10 points so all three are currently tied for last place as I see it. A win by BC would give them 12 points and put them ahead of the Riders although the Riders would have a game in hand! But a win in this game for the Lions gives them the season ...

Re: Bombers 23 - Lions 6 Post Game Stats and Comments

You can argue all day as to whether it's the game plan, the execution or the talent. I doubt its solely one of these factors. As always it's a combination of the three. Exceptional talent can cover for poor game plans. Exceptional game planning can cover up talent weakness. But poor execution will ...
