Tom Scott was an import.  Just an FYI.

 

Scott Flagel.

My metric to quantify it is impact in receiving yards. I can't recall two having a 750+ yard season. What about 500 yards?

My metric is "legit threat to score on TDs every touch".  I think Woli, Petermann, Demski all are a legit threat.  Add in Harris (in his "SB role") and wowzers.  Lineup like we haven't seen since at least '79.

Whereas I never felt Kohlert, Watson, JFG, etc, were qualified.  They were more like NAT placeholders, like many teams have (see OTT minus Sinopoli) just to fill the ratio.  Lapo/MOS integrate our NATs much better than other teams do.  They are legit players.  In fact, I don't think the threat to score decreases any when the ball goes to our NATs vs Lawler or Whitehead or Bailey or Adams.

Bottom line, when you play WPG, you must cover all of our receivers, and cover them well, as any of them can make you pay.

The poster mentioned Tom Scott as well. That's who I was referring to. Scott Flagel was a very good safety for a few years.

Tom Scott (born November 19, 1951) is a former Canadian Football League receiver for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders.[1] He was drafted in the 1973 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions. In an 11-year professional career from 1974?1984, he caught 649 passes for 10,837 yards and 88 touchdowns. Scott was a part of five Grey Cup winning teams with the Eskimos.[2] He is a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, where he was inducted in 1998.[1]

Born and raised in northern California, Scott played college football at the University of Washington in Seattle, alongside quarterback Sonny Sixkiller.

I made the mistake of listing Tom Scott as a Canadian receiver. Thank-you to Blue In BC for the correction.

Scott Flagel did play as couple of games as a receiver. On September 18, 1982 Flagel made it onto the active roster as a WR a position that he had been practicing at for a while. He would swtich back to his more familiar defensive role in his second game.

Flagel also played SB in the 1983 pre-season. Although listed as a DB during the regular season, Flagel did have 1 catch for 15 yards in the first game of the season.

So you never saw Poplawski, House or Wilcox?

Nope... didn't start watching the bombers seriously until 2005... little bit in 2001 because they made it to the cup that year

Oh my gosh, get serious!! The guy couldn?t carry Joe Pops cleats to the field!! Rick House was better than Watson ever will be as well. Ditto Gord Patterson. Watson did zip in blue and Gold. Zip. Rory Kolhert contributed more.

Lol I am serious. I never had the opportunity to watch those guys. I believe you, but in my post I said since I've been watching the Bombers. Which started in 2005. We've had some awful canadian receivers since... I think you could make a case for Demski and Wolli both being better though...

Poplawski's stats and info:

Poplawski was a territorial exemption in the 1978 CFL college draft by the Edmonton Eskimos.  Poplawski was traded to Winnipeg before the 1978 season for SB Tommy Scott.  Considering both players are in the Hall of Fame, you might make t hat a classic good trade for both teams.  Poplawski had an immediate impact in the CFL as he 75 catches, missing the thousand mark by just two yeards with 998. Besides being named the Outstanding Rookie in the CFL, Poplawski was also named to the West and CFL All-Star teams, and runner-up for the Oustanding Canadian.  Injuries limited Poplawski to only two games in 1979. He bounced back in 1980 with 56 catches and then really went to town in 1981 with 84 catches in 1271 yards.  Poplawski was named the Outstanding Canadian in 1981, along with being named to the West and CFL All-Star teams.  Poplawski had 57 and 58 catches in the next two season then had a 67 catch, 998 yard season in 1984 to win his third West and CFL honours as well as the runner-up for the Outstanding Canadian.  In 1985, Poplawski had 75 catches for 1271 yards to claim his fourth West and CFL All-Star honours and again was the runner-up for Outstanding Canadian.  Poplawski went out in 1986 on the top of his game with 74 catches and 1075 yards.  He won his fifth West and CFL All-Star honours and his second Outstanding Canadian award.  Joe Poplawski was named to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1998.

Rick House stats:

Rick House's career spanned 13 very good years from 1979 through 1991, resulting in 522 career receptions for 8139 yards.  It was a career with two stints in Winnpeg with a few in Edmonton sandwiched in the middle.  House was a first round draft pick of the Blue Bombers (fifth overall) in the 1979 CFL college draft.  In his first stint in Winnpeg (1979-1984), House had two 1000+ yard receiving seasons with over 60 catches (1981 and 1982).  In 1982, House was named the Most Outstanding Canadian in the West and was the runner-up for the Shenley that year.  House signed as a free agent with Edmonton in 1985 and played four seasons for the Eskimosfrom 1985 to 1988.  House then returned back to Winnipeg in 1989 for the always promising player called future considertions, and played his final three seasons with the Bombers.  1990 was one of HOuse's best seasons as he caught 63 passes for 683 yards and was named to the Eastern All-Star team for the first time.

Gerald Wilcox stats

Gerald Wilcox was a first round draft pick of t he Ottawa Rough Riders in the 1989 CFL college draft.  Wilcox played three seasons in Ottawa (1989-91).  He had a decent rookie season in 1989 with 24 catches, but injuries lomited him to just 3 games and 6 catches in 1990.  In 1991, Wilcox bounced back with 26 catches in his final season in Ottawa.  In June of 1992, Wilcox was traded to Winnipeg for CB Less Browne.  It was in his second season in Winnipeg, in 1993, that Wilcox broke out with 79 catches for 1340 yards to win West All-Star honours, and be the runner-up as the OUtstanding Canadian in the CFL.  Wilcox showed it was not a fluke by having about as agood a season as any receiver could have in 1994 with 111 catches for 1624 yards.  This time Wilicox was both a West All-Star and a CFL All-Star as well as winning the Outstanding Canadian award. In 1995, Wilcox missed three gamess, but still had his t hird straight thousand yards season receiving with 69 catches for 1024 yards.  Unfortuantely, injuries then limited Wilcox to just 4 games and 20 catches in 1996.  In June, 1997, Wilcox was traded to Calgary for the rights to RB Dick Tyler and OL Franco Rocco.  Wilcox played just two games with Calgary, before announcing his retirement in July of 1997.  Wilcox finished his career with 356 catches for 5,478 yards.

Thx for posting the stats

In 1981, we had Pop and House both with over 1000 yds receiving, when in the history of the game has a team had 2 NAT receivers with over 1000 yds each!?! Did Ellgard and Fairholm have that for the Riders in their hey day??  Stats junkies ??
