Well the jury is out on this team big time. Teams have figured out our offence and defence. It?s conceivable that we could lose out. 5-0 was a mirage. Look who we beat. Finish 3rd lose the semi in Sask and the whole coaching staff will be gassed. I?ve come to the realization that this team is never winning another Grey Cup and I?m okay with it. Don?t get me wrong I?ll be back next year for my 41st year and 36th year as a season ticket holder and I?ll get sucked in again if we get off to a good start. I guess I?m too stupid to know any better.

Team can still pick it up. Question is: can they? Can the coaches coach and do we actually have the talent spread around. No question we have some good players but do we have enough

Let's face it. This team won it's first five games against losers. Since then they've played below .500.

In place of who? You realize that the Ticats had progressed more into pass defending knowing we could succeed passing. So running got a bit easier.

I'm not sure if that's true or not. He's bigger so there is merit in that.

We won the first 5  because we are talented. We won the banjo bowl because we are good, we won 3 quarters against Mtrl because we have the horses to do it.
We lost 4 because there is a disconnect somewhere, not due to talent. So where is the disconnect? Brown said it, mo Legget said it Sanchez said it, Dunnigan said it, Sanchez said it.... these are guys with an immense knowledge of the game so if the this many guys in the know say it, who the hek is creating the dusconnect?

heck nah

While we are done at the moment we are not out.  This thread is premature.  50/50 shot still at winning a playoff game.  Good enough seeing we have a backup QB.

You could see it in O'Shea's eyes at the end of the game against the Als.....an utter look of shock and horror  after witnessing history in the making.   It wasn't a good look!

I m with you on this. We lost tonight but I wasn?t even remotely upset, just thought this team blew 20 point leads to Toronto and Montreal, it doesn?t have what it takes to compete with the big boys, and we don?t.

It matters not how well the season starts....it matters most how you finish.   We are currently trending downward, heading for doom.   The cream rose to the top today on the back of SL

heading for doom, there it is LOL

Win, lose or draw the CFL is fun to watch, no doom just a team in a funk, with a backup QB, D that is defeated as of late and a fan base super hungry to success.

Coaching is holding this team back. Not the players but the coaches. There has to be a serious discussion about our 2 O & D coordinators this off season. Both shouldn't be guaranteed that they'll be back. I think our assistant coaching staff needs to be changed. Some guys have to go. O'Shea just can't accept status quo anymore.

you have to admit though, they really fooled us... it looked to be a barn burner when we forced a 2 and out on Hamiltion's first series and came back with the 74 yard, dominant march down the field to score... felt like there was a chance for it to be a 'statement' type of game...  then the smoke cleared and calamity ensued...

It got to the point where I was laughing at how inept our team looked and how lost MOS looked.

So yeah, it was fun-ny

We forced a 2 and out then got a great drive. Hamilton came back with a drive of their own and I was thinking, now we've got ourselves a football game. Unfortunately, the offence only got that 1 good drive and the defence leaked like a sieve and the game was basically over at the half.

I see it somewhat differently. The Bombers are not really in a funk - they just do not have the management talent to succeed. An average HC - and OC that wanted to be considered for other HC jobs during the off season and was denied that opportunity by the Bomber Management (KW) and will head out of town just as soon as the season is over and the worse DC in the league that must know where the bodies are buried otherwise how is he still around? Then you add a top management in Walters and Miller (both with little to no experience at that level) and you have the mix for failure.

Add to that an average HC at best and you have the mix for what you are seeing today. The Bomber organization is very very luck to have the fan base they currently have and should be very thankful that the average fan in the Peg will still show up for the games.

I'm really not sure where this team is at right now. They looked like world beaters in the Banjo Bowl 3 weeks ago. Play tough in the LDC the week before  and lost on a walk off field goal. Took one at Commonwealth the week before that. Had a scintillating first half against Montreal last week. They seemed to have made the transition from Nichols to Streveler without missing a beat. Then the bottom falls out in the last quarter. Last night they look like they simply can't compete with Hamilton. This is a team that recently lost squeakers to Calgary and Saskatchewan. Does that mean the Bombers can't compete with those teams now either? We'll find out next week. I still like to believe they have what it takes and can get it together again. But it sure is tough right now.

Hamilton is the best team in the league folks. Not a big surprise that they looked good against us. The Riders are no where near as good and they beat us a few weeks back.

Next week's game is huge! A Rider win and we're in free fall looking at going to Calgary or Regina for a playoff game. Neither is good for us.

Next week is most definitely huge.  I think Calgary is going to roll to first place.  The winner of that game will most likely finish #2.

This. First drive aside, it was a lousy game to watch as a fan of this team.

Reading a lot of the posts I can think back to previous years and the same things we're being said over ..and over....and over again about the same concerns... but the team really doesn't change...Perpetual losers and this fan has doubts anything will change anytime soon...Tired of it

Nah, that's not us.  That's the 7 OTT fans that showed up to watch their worse-than-2013-bombers team today.

you have to admit though, they really fooled us... it looked to be a barn burner when we forced a 2 and out on Hamiltion's first series and came back with the 74 yard, dominant march down the field to score... felt like there was a chance for it to be a 'statement' type of game...  then the smoke cleared and calamity ensued...

Not the smoke.  The heat arrived.  Our first drive they brought no heat.  They were just toying with us to see what our game plan was.  Immediately after that it was heat nearly every down, and our junk pass-pro OL were looking like OTT's or BC's!

Last night they look like they simply can't compete with Hamilton. This is a team that recently lost squeakers to Calgary and Saskatchewan. Does that mean the Bombers can't compete with those teams now either? We'll find out next week. I still like to believe they have what it takes and can get it together again. But it sure is tough right now.

From what I saw it simply looked like our D didn't watch HAM film.  For instance, HAM did that Banks crossing right on the LOS after all receivers draw coverage out deep, then it's Banks vs a LB and/or DBs in chase mode, and they get huge yardage.  They ran that on us 2-3 times.  They ran it on every team in the last 3 weeks.  We didn't film study this or plan against it.  One of them we had Bighill as the guy assigned to Banks!  Painful to watch.

HAM was calling a masterpiece on O.  Simply owning us with receivers wide open everywhere.  Picking on Rios.  Mismatching fast guys against LBs.  Fooling us every which way.  That's all on Hall.

I'm a Hall fan (yes, I have a paper bag on my head, it still fits over my tinfoil), but he didn't plan squat against HAM.  It was even worse than vs MTL because HAM just ran all their normal plays, and for some reason we didn't find ways to stop them!
