Going into the upcoming game against Lions how the Bombers respond is going to speak volumes on if this team is going to make a run in the playoffs. IMO. The Hammy game was embarrassing, 10-3 Vs. 3-10 and you tried to mail it in. If the Bombers are as good as their record, even an average performance by the Bombers would have made it an easy win. No excuses for that kind of showing.

Last night's loss should be a serious wake-up call for the team going into the final four games of the season.

Then again, I thought the team knew what was up for grabs going into last night's game... So, I dunno. Undecided

and playing a team that has nothing to lose can be problematic as well... they take more chances and do more unpredictable things...

one thing that should be taken, or learned, from this game is that if your players are buying what you're selling the average player can become a good player. June Jones is turning this team around... Maybe after this game our D will see that they can't just rely on Magic Matt and the Mirical Machine to bail them out...

I 'think' that game really cost us any realistic chance at 1st in the West.  Too bad as it would have made the last game of the year a great one.  Now they really have to focus for the final stretch so they don't risk losing the chance to host the semi.

The biggest problem with the Hamilton game was that the Tiger Cats were playing for their playoff lives while the game was almost meaningless for the Bombers.The Bombers will likely windup getting second place whether they won or lost that game.The chance of getting first was a longshot at best.

My math may be bad but if he bombers lose the last 4 all they get is the cross over. And losing all of the last 4 is not an impossibility by any stretch.

We have two against BC at home - and hopefully will win at least 1
We are at Toronto with Toronto needing the win same as us
We are in Calgary who will play backups however we have had zero success against the Stamps no matter who they field.

I hate being 'That Guy', but chill folks. It's just one game. As long as we learn from it and play well again next week, no problem. If we lose to the Lions, who have only won once in the last 7 games, then we have a real problem.

Both the Lions and Bombers laid eggs in their last games. The Leo's had a 19 point lead and gassed the game vs Ottawa, and well, we know all about what we did. I think both teams are going to be anxious to get things going again. The Leo's will be more desparate as they can't afford to loose anymore games, whereas the Bombers aren't on the hot seat right now. I just hope they don't go into this funk at this time of the year thinking they don't have to win this game or that game, but we'll win when it counts as winning is not a tap you turn on and off, its a mindset and focus more than anything else, and we didn't look dialed in during the tabbie game.

For sure.  Why is it that we seem to catch every team coming off a bad loss and desperate for a win?  Argh.  If HAM had won vs TOR they probably wouldn't have been as fired up.  Really annoying.  Now we have the angry Lions to contend with.  Well, perhaps with the Lions that means Jennings just chuck deep INT's all night like he always does when he's desperate.  Hopefully we get 2nd half panic Jennings, not 1st half calm dink&dunk Jennings.

You may just get your wish. If Nichols finger isn't 100%, Davis may start next game. Bombers don't 'need' to win this game, and to put Nichols at risk of further damaging his finger doesn't make sense playoff wise (he hurts it further and we're screwed!!), we'll see.....

That's because the majority of the team around him was sucking the whole game.....and his numbers were fair along with a couple of dropped balls by the receivers...An he runs better than matty-iceberg

The bombers have not made the playoffs yet. They keep losing and they can kiss a home playoff game good bye. they had lots to play for. And still have lots to play for.

Sure they do, somebody please tell them that!!! As the Ticats were clearly more instense in that game, and football is a game of intensity. Ticats are in a do or die situation and the bombers have to win one of their remaining games to get into the playoffs and they played like that

Then we have a management issue. To think you're gonna go a whole season without needing your backup to step up is naive at best.

Is there another team in the league whose backup has basically zero game experience?

Maybe Lefevour but Davis..no thank you. But like someone else said, mOS would expect a win, and he should. It's your job to prepare yourself when your number is called..it was called and he wasn't prepared.  Lefevour if Nichols can't go.

He had chances to run, and he didn't....   or he didn't very well.

Look...   I know he was put in a difficult position...   But he has been around for 2 years....   When he gets his chance he has to be ready, and he didn't look very good.  If Nichols can't go, put Dom in with a full week of practice, but have him on a short leash.  Personally I feel Lefevour can do better and he is experienced.  We are in a battle for 2nd Place....   maybe first, and this is not QB development time

Ran better than Matt does....did the hook slide better too, just too early lol

Yeh sure short leash or even start Lefevour if Matt was ever to be out a game. And would it be considered "development time"', or would it be "show us what you can do" time, so the Bombers can really decide who goes in if there was absolutely no other choice cause Matt was done....jus saying it has happened to many teams in the past...

I agree 100%. Davis has been here for 3 years now. Yeah coming in to a game at the half is tough but that's what being a backup QB is. If Nichols can't go I hope Dom starts but LeFevour is experienced enough that if Davis struggles, you can swap. We are in too tight of a race to be patient with our backup, especially one that's been here for a few years now

Exactly.  Davis is an amazing athlete with not the best football sense.  They have obviously been working with him.  Hook slide was not part of his repertoire.  They were awkward and early.  Also he did not just take off and start running.  Also we all complain about developing a QB - we are developing a QB.

Love Lefevour now and in college.  Fast, tough, athletic but unlike Davis does not have the arm strength to throw deep or on the run.   Also because is is a good runner he tends to take off when maybe he should not.  Many thought he could start in the NFL.   We will see but both have potential.

Not too many Lulay, Tate or Franklin be around.  And really are these guys that great? Maybe Lulay but he is injured again.

Yep, Davis should be next man up, but in my opinion should be on a short leash because Lefevour is a legit backup QB.  Of course this will all be a non-issue when Nichols starts this week  Wink

Not just this year, every year. Dan is known for having a mush arm. It's what has kept him from being a starter in this league.

Dan can scramble, run, throw in the run, and is decent with the intermediate passes.  But when he goes deep his accuracy is unpredictable.  I think he'd do okay in Lapo's offense.

Davis looked a lot more hesitant than he did in the pre-season but that may have to do more with sticking with LaPo's ball security offence than on his talent as a gunslinger.  He had nothing to lose so I kind of  wish he would have pushed more of his throws as he definitely has the arm strength to fire bullets or throw the long ball. 

As for LeFevour he is more of a sandlot QB that thrives on broken plays and throwing on the roll or taking off.  Again probably not the best fit to execute LaPo's offence but if they let him play his style he could probably beat any team in the league at least once on his athleticism alone.

Sure thing, I hope you're prepared to wait until shortly after the 12th of Never for that day to arrive.  The Bomber offence and the play calling is designed around Nichols strengths, Davis has to adapt his game to meet that criteria whether it suits his talents or not.

Agreed. I'd be willing to call Bridge either the best or second best backup in the CFL right now (given Lulay is hurt). He did have a bit of a rough time when he came off the bench against us in the Banjo Bowl, but he's been nothing but impressive every other time out and lead the Riders to a couple wins. Probably should be the starter instead of Glenn, and it wouldn't surprise me at all if he is the starter there next year.

I think Glenn reclaimed his title as "best insurance policy" last game...  if Jones doesn't start Bridge, he's... well... still an idiot.
