PJ, I am getting tired of your constant negativity when it comes to the bombers

PJ was pretty positive last year.

I think he will be the leading receiver on our team, he is our new Derrick Armstrong.

I picked 800, not that I doubt him as a receiver, I just think LaPo's offense will make use of Harris, Demski, et al instead of relying on the 4 main receivers.

I think that he'll get over 1000 but not 1200.

If Strevler is #1 Mathews will be over 1200.

1200.  I think the key here is for Matthews to start strong out of the gate.  Nichols (and Lapo) like to throw to those who make catches.  You miss some catches early in a game?  They don't throw to you again.  See Bowman last year.  This carries on from game to game.

If he starts strong and gets Nichols' confidence, then I think he'll see a ton of targets.  And a lot will be 8-yarders, but they'll add up to avg 80y/game which get him his 1200.  I'd also expect a couple of games with 120+ yards.

The beauty of it this year is if they shut down Harris, we'll just punish them with Adams/Matthews.

Between 700 and 800 is my guess.

jeeez louise. Walters is paying him all star money. Sure hope he's right and the "700 - 800" yard people are wrong.

At least 1,000 yards but I'm okay with him proving me way wrong. Grin

I think he is a mortal lock to get 800 yards, and is likely to be at (or close to) 1000 yds. 

You have to figure that Dressler got 68 targets, those will be up for grabs.  But we have to also remember that his best prior year was 1000 yds, and Lapo isn't going to suddenly throw out his playbook and go all deep all the time, just because we signed Matthews.

I'm thinking he'll be in the 1000-1200 range but voted 1200. I think his biggest impact will be in the endzone.

I'll say around 800. Darvin was our only 1000 yard receiver last year but we had seven players with 400+ yards, the most in the CFL (Calgary had 6, Edmonton 4, Montreal only 3). LaPolice and Nichols like to spread the ball around. All boats will rise with another big threat on the field though and likely our other receivers will have bigger years as a result of Matthews being on the field.

I would go far to say this year we will have 2 guys eclipse 1000 yards and another in the 800's...could have had 2 last year even if we had another Import (hello Dressler) play 18 games, or had a guy like Thompkins play all 18 games and keep them involved....also too...If Woli wasn't ignored for first half of season other than times Strev's was in he could have eclipsed it too.

The 1000 yard receiver isn't predicated on guys just gobbling up deep shots...average 55 yards a game and you have 1000 if u play all 18

A lot will be determined by Matthew's ability to gain YAC yards and how LaPo uses him, he's big but not particularly fast or elusive.  If they use him like they did Thomkins last season coming to a stop to receive the ball instead of hitting him in stride he'll have a hard time breaking 1,000.

He could end up being a big possession type of receiver for us. I don't think him hitting a 1000 will predicate on him putting up big YAC yards. Thompkins received a lot of short passes and I don't see the Bombers using Matthews in that type of role. Lots of intermediate sideline outs are in his future I think.

As i agree with this... the thing is i think from what i and we have seen Steav might jus be the better QB to exacute it.

Not counting out Nic but with Mattews and Adams being a big threat ....   i jus hope Nic has the arm.

This thing with Lapo running short passes is not what he does but what had to do to keep the ball....  now he will open it up with these 2. He has a legit deep threat. He has 2.... Hes been around long enough to understand and ajust to what he has id think.

I also like the fact Streav can take off n run.

I like Nic but this all seems to be set for Steav.
