Nichols turnovers were absolute killers. Bombers left a possible 17 points on the field. The play call on 3rd and goal was so obvious when Streveler was in that the Lions loaded the box cuz they knew he wasn?t going to hand off or throw. Take the friggin points. The next 3rd and inches just push forward. Stop trying to be so cute.

This was ugly. I blame the coaches and players both. They decided the game was over at the half and went home. But I know this group will learn from this and I expect a huge win next week. They'll be pissed.

We looked okay early but for some reason the passing game really went off the rails after the good start. So frustrating. If we would have taken the points converted or the third and one or if Medlock hadn't missed the FG early we would have have escaped.

I wish I could believe that.

We got way to greedy with our third down gambles. One sure....but both....no....you have to take the points. especially when an almost gimme field goal makes it a 2 score game.

Bombers still win the tiebreaker vs BC, right?

Funny; after last week's game, we were thinking that B.C. was one of the worst teams in the league.  Now we're supposed to be comforted by the fact that we have the season series?

Well...that's optimistic....never been a fan of MOS decisions in close games and he isn't learning game management after 5 years.

This is a veteran team with a veteran coach. They should have long ago learned what it takes to put a game like this away. They may win next week, but it doen't change what this game says about them.
