Cool little tribute to the local homegrown talent.... lots of Manitobans on the Blue right now - Harris, Demski, LaFrance, Miles.

Maybe the Bombers are going to use a similar model to the Als and Riders.

In some defesive sets, especially if we ran some 3-4 fronts he would do pretty well as an inside guy..When he was in T.O he started for about 12 games and did quite well.

Was actually shocked when I figured out he was the Miles from UofM...I actually thought he was a rookie import at that time

I'm a big fan of Miles and I think he's better than Sam Hurl.  But he's not a guy I would want to rely on for an extended period of time as a starting MLB...especially on a team with Grey Cup aspirations.

Will be a great MLB backup to Muamba.

If that were the case it would be hard to explain why Miles was never given the opportunity to replace Hurl last season for even a single game when it was obvious Hurl was deficient. I don't recall Miles on the field at all except on S.T., he appears to be below Briggs on the depth chart.

While I dont love Miles as a starting MLB, that argument is actually not that great. Hurl was MOS and Halls guy. He was way more familiar with the systems and Miles never was even considered for any role besides STs. As for Briggs, I think he's more of a Wil

Great marketing. The Bombers are going to kill it with this angle this year I think.

Yes, and it felt like a chore going to most games.

ouch.....that season reminded me of the season ?Black Magic? Joe Zaleski took over after Bud Grant left to coach the Vikings....not pretty and in all 3 seasons coaching us his best year was 4 wins.....a low point in Bomber history following the glory days of Bud Grant......I had to adjust my fandom a tad!
