It's cocky to say there will be a beat-down and insinuate a coach will get fired. I never said anyone couldn't be confident in their team or that anyone should be scared. Where did you come up with that?

And you're right, but Jones is also OC in a garbage organization. He has more experience as a coach and, perhaps less importantly, a player. I just think Dinwiddie is being a bit oversold while Jones gets outright ignored.

I think saying it's going to be a beat down is healthy trash talk, all I'm saying.

And I'm not talking about Jones' work with the Als, I'm saying he's been with 4 different organizations over the past 7 years and has gotten bumped back down to a QB coach at one point and is now the OC in Montreal. It seems like his career is trending down, not up. I wouldn't have him on a list of potential HC's either.

Probably it had something to do with how Edmonton's defense played this season.

EDM D did improve a ton in the last half of the season.  They were hot garbage to start the season, and improved from there.  Not to WPG levels, but I'd say to around BC's (sans Solly) level.  I think Bene got them into shape a bit.

I'd say it was EDM's O that was letting them down in most of their 2nd half losses.

But no way Bene is a HC again any time soon.

Roll Eyes

Could you just not say crap like that? Sunday isn't going to be a cakewalk.

Anyway, I'm surprised Hodge made no mention of Khari Jones as a potential HC candidate. I'd slot him ahead of Dinwiddie and even some of those names down in the US (who I don't realistically see returning to Canada any time soon).

it's not crap it's his opinion.  Have some respect.

A beat down could happen and it's ok to discuss that possibility.

That is what he is talking about...showing some respect..to the opposition. There is nothing that is responsible for more losses than over confidence. Our 31-0 was an everything went fright for us and everything went wrong for them game. I don?t expect that at all.

Key to the game is to start off early and score to quiet the crazy crowd down.

Luckily, that just happens to be WPG's M.O.!!  But as one of the Rider fans here said, the green fans won't be nervous if we're only up 7 or 10, because they think their Green Jesus #7 will bail them out.  So we have to get them down by 15+ and keep the boot down.  If we do that, the fans will be questioning their team by halftime.... and leaving in the late 3rd Q when we're up by 18.

I don't think that game plan is overconfidence, I think it's somewhat necessary.  I think that's what Lapo will gameplan around.  If we get into a slugfest then it'll be ugly and it'll be much harder to win.  But win we will!

Speaking to Khari, HC is a different skill set than OC. If he would be better at it, I don't know him well enough to say but he does seem like a guy people like and rally for.

That may be true, but typically (Kavis Reed notwithstanding), you have to succeed in one role beofre being promoted to the next level.

Not sure I like Khari as a head coach.  I would like to see him be instrumental in some big game victories.  I just haven't seen it.  I wish i would have.  I loved him as a player.  What a competitor. 

But Buck was even a better competitor.
What about Dinwiddie in Calgary?...is he Good, or did he just have Great players to work with?

Lapo is head and shoulders above the other candidates, one of the overall better coaches in the league. Would he want to leave Winnipeg?  I wouldn't.  Comfy here, competitive team.m Winnioeg has done a lot of things right.  Time to rise o the occasion and win a couple more road games.

Where was the last game the Bombers won thenGrey cup?...Edmonton? Hmm?!
