Talk about unfullfilled promise.....

The Good

1.  Harris was on his horse tonight, outstanding running.

2.  o-line was good, but Paddy Neufeld made me forget about Travis Bond tonight, he was dozin'...

3.  the short kick-off was a work of art.

4.  The defence played well enough to win tonight, holding BC to 17 points before handing the ball to the O with two minutes left.

5.  Short yardage defence was great tonight.

The Bad

6.  Nichols with 3 picks, you can't win like that.  And all of them were poor choices. 

7.  Even thought Demski had some nice plays tonight, I think they went to him too often.

8.  The defence, and in particular the linebackers, did not contain Rainey very well tonight.

9.  Defensive line was undisciplined, with three roughing the passer calls, and two of them were lazy headshots. 

The Ugly

10.  Lapo and Streveler were too clever by half on the QB sneak at the start of the 4th quarter.  Pro Tip: When you only need six inches, go straight ahead.  Keep It Simple Stupid.  I didn't mind the turnover on downs when we left them on the one, but the second time was just unnecessary.

The Good
Henry looks like our best KR this season. As a national, that's nice. Kids smooth and has wheels.
Harris and OL

The Bad
D let us down when we needed em

Ugly
Penalties
Nichols needed to be average and we win. He played like he was hungover.
Awful offensive coaching. Lapo doesnt always need to be cute. Run Harris. It's not that hard

Only point I will take issue with is the defense. They have been worse, but they are playing a rusty 34 year QB playing behind a bad O-line with a gimpy left tackle, and without their number one running back. If Lulay was a bit more accurate in the first half they had two receivers open for touchdowns. And they let BC drive the field over and over again in the third to give up 20 points. They are still a big part of the problem.

Good: Harris , Demski, OL, AB.

Bad: Penalties. Some of Lapo's play calling. DL not enough pressure tonight.

Ugly: Mr. Nichols. Is he really healthy. O in the second half.

Good: Randle had a good game

Ugly: The RTP call on Wild

The Good
- Harris was phenomenal
- Demski had himself a nice game (although the last pass by Nichols, although definitely a poor throw and decision, WAS catchable)
- O-line... another really great performance from them
- Bighill, Santos-Knox, Randle
- The defense held the other team to 20 points... they did their job.
- Henry looked good on KR, which I didn't really expect from him. Nice surprise.

The Bad
- 3 RTP calls (although the one on Wild was bogus)
- Offense goes away from the run for most of the second half, and gets no results. When they did sustain a drive, they turned it over. Fine with the first turnover on downs call especially since it pinned them at the 1 anyway... not so fine with the second one where a FG gives you a two score lead.
- Although I liked Demski's game a lot, they threw the swing to him a little too often and it got predictable. Also, the pump-and-go they were trying to set up with that play... they completely butchered it when they called it, as Bowman didn't get open and then Nichols threw the ball a mile over Dressler's head after going to the next read

The Ugly
- All those points left on the board
- Nichols' worst game as our starting QB. This belongs here, it was more than just bad. Even a lot of the throws he hit on looked off. A couple beautifully-placed passes to Adams, but a lot more ugly ones than nice ones

The good :Harris.

The bad: Nichols with his 3 picks and 0 points in the 2nd half against the 9th ranked D which makes it a double bad.

Who was the idiot calling the offensive plays for the Blue Bombers today? Here Andrew Harris rushed for an average of 10.7 yards per carry today, and he's not given the ball on second and goal from the Lions' 3, third and one from the Lions' 7 and first and ten from midfield when even a rouge wins the game? Was it Paul LaPolice?

The Good
Andrew Harris- The guy shows up every game.
Nic Demski- Glad to see the Bombers using him as both a RB and Rec.

The Bad
The defense once again being able to stop a team on first down and then letting them convert on second and long.
Going away from using Harris. That last Bomber drive he should have got the ball on first down.
The points left on the field by going for it on third and short instead of kicking a FG. The first one I get because you're down on the goal line and your defense is playing well but the second one was just stupid. Take the points and make it a two score game.
Medlock missing a FG.

The Ugly
Three RTP penalties. Although the one on Wild never should have been called.
Nichols worst game as a Bomber.

the decision to gamble on 3rd down is MOS's call....the play call is on Lapo.   Comedy of errors!!
