Preseason power rankings really are useless other than the fact is that they provide a litmus test on how we look on paper.  I certainly surround myself with Bomber discussion a lot more than CFL discussion.  It can be a bit of an echo chamber.  It's nice to see that those outside our circle certainly respect what we are doing.  It doesn't mean anything until it comes together on the field though.

- Chris Mathews stole the show.  Was terrific making play after play. 

- Asotui Eli our OLineman that we drafted, on one play picked up Tariq Lachance and hurled him back 3 yards landing on his back. It brought a roar from the crowd.  This guy was the steal of the draft.

- Lucky Whitehead made some very nice catches and runs.  I was a fan of his when he was with the Dallas Cowboys, but he wasn't much of a receiver but he was good on jet sweeps and WR screens.  He was a descent punt and kick return guy. Might be a great pickup for us with the big CFL field and his speed.

Brady Oliveira ran hard and had some good plays.

Winston Rose DB, made a great Interception on one play.

Sean McGuire QB had some nice throws in tight windows and Matt Nichols was very sharp also.

Nick Demski, Corey Washington made so nice catches and runs.


Thanks so much!

If Eli actually does become our elite starting centre on day 1, not only will I be pumped, but that is an aardvark fairy tale script if I've ever seen one. We would never hear the end of it. lol.

I'm not in favor of rushing him. It could turn out he is head and shoulders better than Couture I suppose, but I doubt it. Let him develop I say.

In addition to points made about their personnel issues, it's not like they were disrespected in the rankings. They're number 2...

Yea....getting a number two ranking with that much offseason upheaval on the roster seems like respect to me.

For me, until they do something other than win 12 games a season, they deserve to be ranked #1 to start the season.

They lost Claybrooks too. That D has been backbone of that team for the last several years. You can't reasonably pick them until we see how they're going to do now.

BLM is a tremendous QB, but I'm very curious to see how he would do on a team that needs him to score more, come from behind, etc. Would love to see the Stamps with a losing home record this year.

Their receiving corps is pretty pedestrian this year, and the defence will need a miraculous year of recruiting to be as good as last year. They are still near the top of the CFL, but I don't think there is any possible way a team can lose that much talent and not take a step back.

Everyone is BLM this and BLM that....he actually was average last year. Their defence quietly was the best in the league. There is no way they will be this year.

This Eli situation keeps getting better and better.. Sure, LaChance is a smaller DL, but still... serving pancakes day one, giving flying lessons the next... I am excited about this player... and the way he was acquired

If we were ranking based on previous years...sure. However, they lost more talent than I have seen a CFL team lose in a long time.
Besides the aforementioned Singleton and Micah Johnson (two top 5 CFL defenders) they also got gutted with the losses of

Kamar Jordan (won't return until LD at the earliest)
Chris Matthews
Marken Michel
Ramar Morris

Thurman (almost a 100 tackle WIL)
Emmanuel Davis
Ciante Evans
Ja'gared Davis

That's a veritable all star team of talent that walked directly off their starting roster. If people have questions about how that is going to be replaced I believe that is warranted.

Look...preseason power rankings are a joke, but if you must do one right now, I'm not sure why anyone would pick the Stamps as number one. They lost an incredible amount of talent on defence and offence this offseason. I don't care how good Huffer has been in the past replacing Singleton and Micah with anything resembling their talent isn't going to happen. Period. It's silly to even suggest.
