I don't think we can judge Darian's performance last year by that tire fire in Mont.....We would be an ideal place for him to finish off his career as our no 2. qb. ...   Durant to Dressler (when we need it) still works for me and that would please me to no end to see the look on rider fans faces when they march up the field...As long as he comes in reasonable....no brainer

Or the riders fans have a good laugh cause Durant to Dressler is a bust and their magic gone...

So, they haven't even had a chance to talk to Durant's camp yet, and you are already dis'ing them... 

They have added players, they have re-signed players, they have added/changed coaches...  they are far from "standing pat".  I understand they aren't doing as many or a large of changes as you might prefer, but they are far from standing pat.  If you think that Walters isn't working 10 hour days, even before FA period hits, well, I guess you are welcome to you "opinion".

There is a battle plan, there is a wish list, there are as plethora of "what if's" defined and ready for action.  Durant getting released is one of those, and you can bet that they "high foreheads" have the potential situation quantified and ready for action.


1st bolded part, I am not dissing the Bombers, I am predicting the Bombers will probably not do anything to get Durant and some other team will sign him even though the Bombers need an experienced back up. I have been watching the Bombers for 48 years and this is what they do or don't do in better terms.

2nd bolded part, I never said or implied that Walters is not working hard, just the fact the Bombers tend to be slow on making moves before other teams beat them to it. I hope you are right and the Bombers sign Durant, but I am not convinced the Bombers will make the move, I guess we will see.

So your thesis is that we should be making roster moves and that Kyle Walters doesn't understand what Ed Hervey already knows, that you should aim for depth at every position and now is the time to improve our team? Is that really your position?

I broke down the 'roster' moves you used as examples (two of which aren't actually roster moves) and lo and behold those examples were not to be taken literally, apparently. Now you tell us. I apologize for making such an obvious mistake. We have already extended a few free agents and signed a few players that the scouts are high on. How else would you like us to make roster moves at this juncture?
Yes to the bolded part, we should be making roster moves to improve our team, lord knows we need to upgrade at certain positions. When we see other teams doing this and the Bombers seemingly doing nothing it becomes frustrating. Then when everyone has upgraded their team, the Bombers are left picking up scraps. For once I'd like to see the Bombers get out in front of these other teams and bring in/sign/trade for players while they are still available and not have to settle for the ones that are left when Walters decides to do something. The players that we have re-signed is positive, these other teams have also re-signed some of their pending free agents that people are high on and have gone out and picked up other players to make their team better, but not the Bombers. In fact I bet the Bombers will drop the ball on signing Durant as a viable experienced back up QB and some other team will sign him even though the Bombers desperately need a good back up QB.

A key to their success would be giving them a schedule like they give to the Riders. Games on Saturdays and Sundays only to allow the outer region folks drive in for the game. The stadium construction would be a catalyst for new hotels, bars and restaurants to open on the harbour (I'm hoping that's where they would build it), that would be patronized by not only fans of other teams but fans in the maritimes who live outside of Halifax and drive in for the weekend.

Imagine how cool it would be for ferries to ship in fans from PEI and Newf? What a party that would be.

This.

I'm in for Schooners-Bombers in Halifax every year if it happens. Maritimers party with the best of them (us)! CFL football is as much a culture as it is a league.

Not sure that all the Glenn bashing is deserved. Unfortunate yes, incompetent, not at all. He lead his teams to the Grey Cups twice - 2007 Eastern Final (could very well have won a Grey Cup for the Bombers) and 2012 Western Final (not-so-good results in GC). Take away the broken arm injury and his career may have played out differently...

I'm not sure if Durant is ready to play the 'mentor a new guy and be a back-up' role. Kevin Glenn has accepted it and Edmonton will benefit from that. Not a Durant fan at all but he comes with a team-first mindset and is willing to hold a clipboard behind Nichols then he is currently the best option available. If anyone thinks Walters hasn't been working hard on this, and other personnel issues, they need to wake up and smell the coffee. Its January!!

He has stated that he miss timed his leap, and Diggs came down and avoided the contact.  Truly unfortunate mis step...  but again, they aren't even in the game without his pick earlier...

Other teams in the league are not standing pat with their roster (are you still with me?) and are making changes/acquisitions (got it?) as  Ed Hervey said this is when teams make the effort to increase depth at every position on the roster (okay so far?). Okay here is where it gets difficult for you...it is not theses named players that are signed but the fact that other teams are trying to pick up pieces to make their football team better. The Bombers on the other hand are doing nothing to try to improve, or so it seems while other teams are snatching up available players and the Bombers will be left looking around after and picking up garbage TC fodder players as signings.

Oh and now that the last available experienced back up QB is now free (Durant) what will the Bombers do...probably nothing and we will be left with Davis and the fever again.

So, they haven't even had a chance to talk to Durant's camp yet, and you are already dis'ing them... 

They have added players, they have re-signed players, they have added/changed coaches...  they are far from "standing pat".  I understand they aren't doing as many or a large of changes as you might prefer, but they are far from standing pat.  If you think that Walters isn't working 10 hour days, even before FA period hits, well, I guess you are welcome to you "opinion".
