it wasn't always pretty but the Bombers get it done... Streveler could have looked better, at least in the passing game... I'm sure that's going to raise some questions... Streveler gets it done with his legs, leading rusher for the game with 95 yards... and that's 6 more yards than he had passing...  Undecided

Eskimos get lucky and the D finally gives up a TD to them late in the 4th...

Have to admit, I was a little worried about the onside kick... could have maybe gone either way if the command center wanted it to...

but it was a big game and a big win and puts us up in the West and a little cushion...

more game details coming soon...

All I'm going to say right now is WILLIE JEFFERSON. So glad that he now plays for us.

I underestimated this team. I thought they?d be in tough tonight and was ready to accept a loss. Even when Edmonton scores that touchdown late, I was thinking that even if Edmonton scored again at least the Bombers win the season series.

But I underestimated them. Weird game, but tremendously entertaining!

Edmonton might have the best secondary in the CFL but the Riders are pretty good on defense as well. Overall Edmonton is better than the Riders IMO.  So I'd expect we do a little better on offense. Don't need a 400 yard passing game but 150 - 175 would be useful.

Streveler needs another week of 1st team reps to be better prepared.

What a crazy game
Good was Jefferson Nevis Hanson Fenner our oline. I don't know if I have ever seen a sub 90-yard passing performance ever win before. Simply crazy

I'm not so sure about that. Good chance we may see them in the playoffs again. At least we know we can beat them.

We've got to get more effective thru the air... I'm going to heed the advice said here earlier and be patient and see if we can improve next week with the additional time at practice...

hopefully getting this win under Streveler's, and the team's, belt will help to settle his nerves a bit and his passing will get better... he was so much better throwing the ball last year for whatever reason...  he had a couple of drops as well, but, to be fair, they weren't placed the best by Streveler... he could have made them an easier catch, but, it's still on our guys to make the plays...

really hating that Edmonton got a major on us though... 1 freaking play, lol...

but all in all, a good win against a good opponent... take it everytime...  Grin

Not a work of art but a great victory aga?nst a top notch opponent. Before anyone says but you can't win like that in the playoffs...i will say this...in cold weather that is EXACTLY how you win in the playoffs.

didn't take a lot of them as I think fumbles were the concern...i suspect the field may have been slick...the little reverse to Whitehead was nice but thought maybe he cut in too soon...

Wolitarsky a bad drop. Again.
I'm not mad about Strevelers stat line. Conditions plus the leagues best D. The fact we won is enough for me

I like Sayles and Rose but I'd argue they had a bad game. 207 receiving yards today for Daniels is bad. Like I said in the game day thread, Daniels could lose us the game. But he didn't.

I actually like our utilization of Whitehead. He isn't getting too much but we aren't forcing anything.

Desjarlais had a rough day

Also would've liked to see more McAllister down the stretch. I know he's super new (kinda) but hopefully we can get him up to speed and starting (unless we wanna start Kongbo and William's, moving Desjarlais to 6th OL).

I don't know how many of you remember the 2011 EF that was played in freezing conditions but they won that by mostly running the ball. With special teams, the D line and running the ball they can do it again.

We currently have a great rounded team that can beat you one day with our D, or our special teams, or with our place kicker who is money when games are on the line...or with the long ball as Nichols still has the most passing TDs....or with our ball control ground and pound run oriented offence.    We have players in all 3 phases that make big time plays when they need them.    We win as a complete team and we are 8-2 for the first time in nearly 2 decades.   

AND....we did it against one of the best Ds in the league and arguably the best O in the league.....however we have better special teams and a D that makes BIG plays at crucial times.   At 8-2 the Bombers are the best team in the league because of our overall team balance and depth.   How many of our starters are out?

Need I say more??

Nah!

You're right. If you had told me at the beginning of the year that we'd be 8-2 and list the starters that are out I'd have told you that you were crazy. I've been tough on our scouts in the past but I've got to admit that they've done a great job of finding players.

Don't expect to see a whole lot of improvement in Streveler's game, most likely that there was the blueprint for the offence they will run under him.  He may improve his passing numbers somewhat but the style of the attack will look much the same, short passes mixed in with heavy running.  As long as they're winning, style points won't be counted, "what you see, is what you get".

It wont matter if its Matt or Strev       the game will remain the same

Thanks.....yes we keep bringing in new players like Grant and now McCallister who made an impact immediately....the team's "next man up" mantra certainly has taken them a long way this season.

Next we play the Riders in the Banjo Bowl which for Rider fans is equivalent to the Grey Cup.....I think Streveler will do well in this game and Jefferson who said he played the best game of his career today, will be pumped as well.  

I think at the very worst, we can split with the Riders.....maybe even win both but let's not get ahead of ourselves and savour this win for a spell!

He hit Demski, Matthews and Wolitarski right in the hands. You want him to run up and hand it to them  Huh Wink

Our return game was a little weak tonight.

Yes, compared to previous weeks... but it was a better return game than EDM's!  And it was much better than our 2018 average.

Desjarlais had a rough day

Two games in a row... his only 2 starts.  To be fair to him, he is a green raw rookie thrust into the fire, and in that regard he is doing great!  And I expect nothing but great things from him in a year or two.  However, he is the weak link right now and in no way shape or form should he be our starting LG for much longer.  Neuf or an IMP need to be in place for the last 3+ games and post-season.

I don't know how many of you remember the 2011 EF that was played in freezing conditions but they won that by mostly running the ball. With special teams, the D line and running the ball they can do it again.

Ya, then that awful CFL had the GC scheduled in the cozy warm BC Place.  Argh!  Fate bit us again.

At least this year the GC will be played in some nice and cold conditions.

Now if Strevler can just get throwing you would have one scary QB.Never would have thought you would win a game with 90 yards passing but still a good win!Way to go boys

The throwing will come..let him settle in..this game was like offensive scheming in a game..run to set up the pass

Teams are gonna be so wary now of the dual run threat..and implemation of sweeps and other runs with Luxky and Demski (which he didnt even use)
That the passing options will open right up

All Streveler needs is time. His passing game will develop as he builds experience playing. I'm excited to see his progression.

Streveler had few nice throws dropped. If I can give a negative it would be to our receivers. With a back-up QB receivers need to step up, now the weather probably had some blame.

Yep, totally. Especially considering that it was raining, I'd expected a defensive battle for the most part where they were grinding it out on the ground.

Nobody has a defence that is geared to stop such a run-heavy offence. I remember back in the day watching NFL Prime Time when they used to highlight 300-yard passing games by QBs and 100-yard rushing games by RBs. Well, if you equate those to stats to being somewhat equivalent in their impact on the game, then our run game is as elite as other team's passing game. That's a good trade off.

The only good games are the games we win. I'm not a big fan of art, so it doesn't have to be a work of art. Just win. By any means necessary.

Oh yeah no I'm not calling him a bust or anything. But as it stands, if we are starting a Canadian DE we may as well exhaust all of our options at guard

well, when you put it like that, lol...

seriously, though, that says a lot about the make up of this team and what it can be capable of...  they'll beat you how ever that have to in order to win whether it be O, D, or special teams...

I didn't think that the O line gave Streveler much time last night and that Harris and Streveler didn't have many holes to run thru...
