Every team has grey cup aspirations

He means contention. We can have aspiration all we want, but we've had some awful teams for many years up until around Nichols took over.

Thank you, and yes, "aspirations" probably wasn't the best word to use in that context.  Pretty sure no one in Bomber management in 2013-14 realistically expected we would be contending for a Grey Cup those years.  In 2018, I think this is the best, most balanced roster we've had in recent memory.

I was a season ticket holder in 2013 and that was definitely a year where it was harder every week to go to the games.

The 2013 Blue Bombers under Tim Burke say hello. 

As does any team who's starting QB is Drew Willy.

Weren't Justin Goltz and Jason Boltus our starting QBs in 2013?  Willy was a massive upgrade on those guys, which is quite telling of just how sad 2013 was.

I di=sagree. I think Goltz was better than Willy.  Goltz played some good games . I liked his style. When he scored a=gainst Sask he would adjust his tie. Like a lot of quarterbacks in Winnipeg , not many got a good chance.

That's about all he was good at. Goltz threw 3 TDs and 7 picks in his career. We released him and nobody else touched him. Say what you want about Drew, but he's been in the league for seven seasons, thrown for almost 9100 yards and 40 TDs on 31 picks across three organizations. Not as good as the greats but certainly better than the literally hundreds of Justin Goltz' out there that blew up the second they got the ball.

We can definitely agree to disagree.  Willy isn't very good, but he is miles better than Justin Goltz.

You're right. Willy's first season here was also O'Sheas and yes while Willy didn't work out he was definitely an upgrade over what we had.

Nothing was worse than in 1998 under Reinebold with TJ Rubley as our QB.  Getting our first win of the season in dramatic fashion in week 11 felt like winning the Grey Cup and we treated Troy Kopp like he was our saviour.  What a joke that was.

the three years from 67-69 we?re still a low point as far as this team....we averaged 3.3 wins per season in that time frame.   I used to follow the games religiously hoping that at least we put up a decent effort....

I believe Goltz was picked up by a couple teams after us.  One being BC, and either Hamilton or Toronto?

I know it?s easy to get mixed up with all the talented QBs we?ve had over the years but I think you?re thinking of Alex Brink.

Goltz went on to play with the Seattle Seahawks, NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys (well, at least in Old Spice and Tide pod commercials).
