Man what a short career Ford will have.  Honestly he has great technique, now if only he could get between the ball and his guy. Anyone have his stats?  He sure was in on a lot of attempts to cover those god like Montreal receivers.  It appeared like no one else could help him out.
Ford has a great chance as a future star in this league.  Mistakes will be made as he learns.

Game will be a battle, we also know him well.

Cole would start at SAM if Kramdi can't play.

Dru Brown hasn't seen a Jordan Younger defence so I wouldn't sweat that too much. I think the bomber D will give Drew plenty to think about.
Go Bombers!

Need to Know | Week 2

"...Getting Bighill back for this week's game against the Ottawa RedBlacks in the capital will be a boost. As head coach Mike O'Shea said after practice: "It's nice to have him back out practising and he looks good. He's so smart, he has so much experience it certainly helps everyone else around him."

Bighill sustained an injury during training camp and was officially placed on the six-game injured list back on May 17th, meaning he had to miss at least one contest before the team could add him back to the lineup.

"Not being out there with my guys is never fun," said Bighill We get to play a game for a living so coming out here and being with the guys is what you want.

"(Getting back this week) is making sure you do everything you can to prepare the right way and not rush anything. I would've liked to have been out there last week but when you're on six-game you're not allowed to so it was as soon as possible.

"I'm coming back at exactly the right time. It's what our medical team believes, it's what I believe and at the end of the day you follow the direction of the people that take good care of us and Al (Couture, head athletic therapist) is the man for that...."

Blue In BC

Bombers better come out of the gate with a bad attitude and more precision.All aspects of their 1st game were lacking.

We could see potential in many players but lack of playing time in pre season was clear. It's a short week on the road to a hungry Redblack team.

Regardless. Bombers need to come up with a decisive win starting from the 1st series.

I can't see them being anywhere near as sloppy as last week's outing.

I fully expect the coaches and veterans to get the team on track this week.

They simply have to be better.

What a stupid timeline.

After watching this weekends games, the Bombers better make plenty hay against the weaker teams this season, don't like their early season odds against teams performing well already.  BC and Cgy. games coming up in the next few weeks will be challenging.  Too many new players in the lineup to have a comfortable snap back reaction like they did after losses last season, it's going to take time for the team to come together and perform well in all 3 areas, there may be struggles and it's not a given they finish first.

I want to see some cohesiveness and spark that was sadly lacking last game....Zack has to be sharper and the special teams have to be a heckuva lot better...I was expecting a lot more from Miller's gang than we showed, and I hope Castillo is back on his game...We need everything working in Ottawa to take the 2pts.

Don't look for a definitive plan of action from Miller, from his recent interviews it's abundantly clear he's figuring it out as he goes along. O'Shea basically shoved Boudreau out the door and gifted Mike the job, he didn't apply for it and really hadn't even considered becoming a STC as a career, he was anointed.

Our special teams weren't exactly great last year under Boudreau though. Some of it was personnel but really O'Shea has had to come in to save the day a few times in the last few years.

Its not a secret to beat us, you have to be able to rush Zac so he can't throw mid to long but If our blocking scheme counters that then we will be successful. Offensively teams will throw short outs to take advantage of our new corners, and once they've tried to adjust go long.
  I said last year, we need to diversify our offense to include more short passes, and rather than just hand off the ball to Olivera 90% of the time straight up the middle, run outside more to prevent them stacking up like Montreal did with Sankey and their front four.
As far as Dru knowing our defense, it goes both ways. We should also have a handle on what Dru likes to throw and his strengths/weaknesses, and offset that.
