Sunday evening game will be strange for sure...I will be there but I suspect the crowd will be less than last game.

Saw that Demski is sitting again but Harris might be good to go...

If the Stamps rookie QB can come in and light it up at IGF against our defence then he might be a CFL keeper.

Today's injury report adds more concerns although it's early. Several more starters added as DNP in practice. Bailey, Thomas and Alexander are new to the list. A few like Jeffcoat and Jefferson were DNP for most of last week but played. That may be the same this week or there is the chance they further aggravated previous injury.

Players like Wilson, Roquemore and Richardson still not practising.

Beginning to wonder if a few players were miss judged and should have been put on 6 game IR?

EDIT: No fine for Alexander. That's an interesting result considering the long review deciding the RP. Not complaining but it's inconsistent.

I thought Jefferson was in the locker room second half vs. Toronto. He should maybe sit out their game on Sunday.he wasn't making many plays, last week.

Just saw sports on CTV. News at. Six.
They actually had some Bomber news on.
The last clip showed Andrew Harris doing drills.
Has he always had that monster brace on? He looked incredibly .....( not fast)
First day, we look decimated.

CALGARY, WINNIPEG INJURY REPORTS: JEFFERSON SITS OUT ON WEDNESDAY

https://www.cfl.ca/2021/08/25/calgary-winnipeg-injury-reports-jefferson-sits-wednesday/

That happened last week as well. Concerning but he doesn't need to practice, he needs to recover. At this point I expect he plays on Sunday until I hear otherwise.


Title: Re: Game #4 Stamps - News & notes
Post by: DM83 on August 26, 2021, 01:29:46 PM
Yeah no problem with the Stars not practicing until,,they are invisible( Jefferson)
It seems to look like these guys need about three weeks off to recover from minor stuff.

Even with the injuries we are still only a couple plays away from winning.
I wish I could share your optimism about Andrew.  But if that clip was from two weeks ago, then he could be a lot lighter and faster on his feet.  I don't mind if he even sits out the regular season.

We also have ratio room to play an American back there, with NFL cuts coming available.
Our remaining backs don't have that extra gear or burst, in my opinion. Our guys just bulldoze, and once  clear to the third level they can get it going,,but not all the way to the end zone.  But with the road graders up,front just run it again.

We do need an explosive player on O.

It's an option and we do have an import on the PR. With possible injuries to nearly all our receivers I don't know who can dress and what the options then become. Adams, Bailey and Woli are nicked. Demski is out.

Everything depends on who goes onto IR and who comes off. Anybodies guess at the moment.


Title: Re: Game #4 Stamps - News & notes
Post by: DM83 on August 26, 2021, 02:45:34 PM
Yup.  I won't pick a victor. We don't seem to have any players left! Geez!
Our defence can't survive another debacle like Toronto.

I hate to say it, but if we played tonite I would be picking Calgary, and Maier passing for 500 yards,,and us 100 yds.

Well three days to get better. Here's hoping.

 Obviously, we're seeing the effects of the long layoff and the lack of preseason games to get these guys into game shape on a more gradual basis. Most of our best players are not youngsters anymore. Covid has definitely hurt our chances for a back to back.
 But, all teams are dealing with it. Short season, so hope for recoveries. Maybe an advantage for teams with younger rosters.

 What about Augustine out of the backfield? He had a couple of decent starts in 2019.

I would give BO one more game then it's time for Augustine to show what he can do.

Great comment on an earlier post.  Most of the stars are feeling the bumps and bruises it seems.
I think we are in trouble.

Watchin Wired here on Friday at Noon.
Toronto kicked us really bad. And we were not ready at all.
Lawler is the real deal.
But who else?

OK but we should actually try giving BO the ball a few times and not letting their DL throw our OL around like ragdolls.

From Darrin Bauming;
Could the long-awaited debut of Alden Darby be this Sunday? Looking like a distinct possibility. He's getting a good look at the dime in practice this week.

Acquired via trade from the #Argos in July following the Achilles' injury to dimeback Mercy Maston.  #Bombers


Title: Re: Game #4 Stamps - News & notes
Post by: Pigskin on August 27, 2021, 06:41:04 PM
I didn't think AH33 would be back this week.

Darby in, does this mean Jones is back to his normal position?

Did Adam's practice today.

From Darrin Bauming;

Tyler Crapigna
did not practice Friday - officially listed as a hamstring injury.

Will rookie Marc Liegghio handle all of the #Bombers' kicking duties on Sunday? Saturday's depth chart release may help paint Sunday's kicking picture.

We should just platoon them and go with the hot hand. It's not like either has earned anything more.

Uhhhh...please review Augustine's performance in the 2019 LDC and the Banjo Bowl.  He's earned a start.

Come on guys. Augustine was last seen playing in these parts three years ago.  He was good.
But he can't even get a sniff of the field today in 2021.  Why do ya think that is?

He hasn't earned it.

I do like the idea of getting him in somehow.  I mentioned a two RB set.  That would be problematic for Calgarys. Man to man defence, plus allow better blocking for out one receiver offence.

Buck had better have done something these last few days.  Without Zach scrambling, we would have no passing game.

CFL.CA shows Josh Miller as a free agent but didn't show any other transactions yet. I take that to suggest he's moved back to PR? Could be a sign of Darby ready to play.

2021-08-27   WPG   MILLER, Josh   DB   N   Ball State   Add To   Free Agent

 Augustine quickly became the forgotten man in 19 because Harris came back with a vengeance. But he acquitted himself well when he stepped in. I'm surprised we haven't seen him at all this year because he could be complimentary to Oliveira. He's not the bowling ball type runner that Oliveira is. He has some moves and speed and does run with some power. Pretty decent hands. Possibly he's another of the walking wounded. With Harris out, I thought he would be in the mix and get some touches.

Maybe sitting out training camp hurt him. This should have been is year. Hope he sticks around, Harris won't be here forever.
