Roomate and I are making the trip. Sitting up in section 612, will have our cowbells ready to make some noise. I attended the 2017 LDC and very much looking forward to a much more competitive game. Should be fun. Looks like it will be around -10, feeling even colder than that around game time. Should be fun. GO BLUE!

Boy, sure is quiet around here for a week before a WSF... not much talk about how we'll beat SSK specifically.  No real talk about schemes.  It's kind of strange.  Last year I think we were more chatty?

A bit similar on the Rider forums.  I think because it's WPG vs SSK it's causing everyone to pause a little bit.  I'm spending a bit of free time watching the painful LDC and BB to see if there's anything we have to worry about, or any tips I think we can use.  Only thing I've come up with so far is our worst enemy is ourselves: if we focus on ball security we will be jut fine.  Oh ya, and SSK holds like mad and is real nasty on OL: they love to tackle (not block) DL.

This week is taking forever.  I've never had such a long week.  And it's only Thursday night.  Ugh.  I never thought I'd say this, but I'll be happy to get to Regina.

Two really good teams, on "hot streaks" facing off. depending which stats you manipulate one team is better than the other. Either team can/should win this game. The general feeling from fans of both sides and experts is takeaways, whichever team is better with protecting the ball will win. I believe both teams are 10-0 when winning the turnover battle.

Turnovers and field position will be huge. My concern is special teams and returning kicks/punts. If we're always starting on our own 20 it's gonna be a long day. For what it's worth most of the CFL fans here are rooting for the Bombers  Smiley

As long as our receivers play well , ball control, I hope  our punting is better, Medlock has to kick away from their returners. I like the way Lankford kicks, kicks the ball deeper.

True, but the downside was the hang-time on his punts, it was lacking. Clearly the winner in the kick-off department over Medlock, I would have no hesitation letting him do the kick-off duties.

The rider fan forum is a joke. There's a WHOLE LOT of talk about nothing. They spend most of their time cutting down the city or the fans they are playing. Pages and pages of nothing !!
Yes, this week has been the slowest week ever !!

Chalking it up to quiet optimism... either that or everybody is holding their breath until we get past the divisional nemesis known as the Riders.  Undecided

The previous 2 years of playoff failures is still fresh in my head. I am truly hoping that this year is different but am only cautiously optimistic. The 2011 Bomber's rode a hot defense all the way to the grey cup finals after all...
