Post by: ModAdmin on July 03, 2022, 03:38:29 PM
Lots of drama with Andrew Harris vs Blue Bombers!  3 Western teams tied for 1st place and the Bombers need to keep the pressure on.

Player changes for the game...

In:   #00 Maruo, #29 McCrae, #30 Rose
Out: #10 Demski, #22 Glass, #52 Mack III

Interesting roster changes. I was wrong about Walker coming back on and Wilcots coming off. In fact Mack III came off. Since we didn't have many Canadian choices to add we added Maruo as the 2nd Global player.

The big addition is getting Rose back at CB.

I took at look at the TO lineup and it does appear AH will be starting (at least on the chart). It will be interesting to see how he does. We always seem to have problems with TO in TO therefore this will be an interesting match up.

I'll be very interested to see how McCrae is used. Assuming that this signals a desire to mix things up in our running game, why not just give Johnny Augustine a few more carries before we insert an import?

Interesting. It would appear that Houston has not only played his way onto the roster but also the boundary corner. Rose is playing with Taylor over on the field side which we have never seen before.

My guess is it doesn't have much to do with running back despite where he's listed. We're probably going to be using Grant a ton more in the passing game and therefore McCrae will be the primary returner. It may also be a way of getting some more speed onto the field on offense which we are going to miss with Demski out.

The changes at CB could be temporary while Rose gets back into game form and he may not be 100% yet. Either way glad to see Houston earning a starting role. MBT can pile up the yardage if we don't contest his passes.

We needed additional receiver depth and McCrae could be a similar skill set to Demski? I'll be watching him and hope he provides a different spark tomorrow.

Always exciting to see new players in action...want to see how the O'Leary-orange does...what does he bring to the offense...mccrae may provide a spark on returns...we have completely botched these TO games  in the past so need to see some high quality intensity right at kickoff.

I'll second this. From the start of the season I've been trying to push for Augustine to start in front of BO, but for some reason that doesn't seem like an option for MOS... In limited preseason action, McCrae shined. I'm excited to see if & how they use him!

From Twitter:


And more from CFL stats: Toronto comes into this game having won 9 of their last 10 home games. That stretch will go up against Winnipeg's current road form of wins in 5 of their last 7 away games overall. Winnipeg last won in Toronto in 2018.

O'Shea may have dropped a clue yesterday when he said QB protection is first and foremost over running and pass receiving for the RB's, because the CFL is primarily a passing league.  My guess is Brady is more capable of blocking than Johnny due to his bulk, but it could be that he also reads his blocking assignments better.  A few weeks ago O'Shea commented that A.H. always scored 100% with his blocking reads, so they have a very high standard to live up to.

Any way to find out with import is not the DI? That makes a difference whether McCrae for example can alternate at RB or for O-Leary-Orange for example without requiring an import receiver to come out.

I agree that pass blocking is important, but to me it's definaly not the most important thing. If it was, we would just play a FB all the time. I don't feel that BO is much better at pass blocking then Augustine, but I do think Augustine is a much better ball carrier. That being said, I know MOS sees every practice so he obviously sees something I don't lol

Just want JA to get his chance sooner rather than later, but I know it will happen eventually!

Logically, McRae will be undesignated.  That allows him to get a good long look at RB if they want, and he can still split return duties with Grant.  I think we will see more of Grant at receiver, but not full time.  I think O?Leary-Orange is going to get more time at receiver.

If O?Leary shows well, that gives another dimension. I think Schoen and Bailey both have the speed to run those sweeps that they use Demski for, so it?s not like they are dependent on Grant to run those.

Honestly, I think this is a wake up call for Oliveira and Augustine.  The team would prefer to stay CDN at RB, but 3.0 ypc is not getting it done.

Exactly why BO is our man but lets make sure others get reps too.  I am happy with how we have managed our run game and it will come around as the Ol gels and improves.

Keeping Zach healthy is all that matters.  Blocking is critical.  Harris was king at it and likely just as important for our cups wins as his offensive production was.  He would have taught BO a great deal.

Logically, McRae will be undesignated.  That allows him to get a good long look at RB if they want, and he can still split return duties with Grant.  I think we will see more of Grant at receiver, but not full time.  I think O?Leary-Orange is going to get more time at receiver.

I doubt we see McRae getting many reps at RB
Agree Grant will get some time at receiver but not a great deal , 2 catches 17 years
 Agree O?Leary-Orange get more reps, 4 catches 35 yards
Disagree about wakeup call for our RBs, they live and die with OL

I expect a very hard fought and competitive football game in a very entertaining one as well I think these are two reasonably talented teams at good spots in their seasons but we'll see the CFL could go either way that's what I like about it we have no idea really what's going to happen in any week for the most part

I agree it is an early reminder to both RB's that nothing is guaranteed and while RB performance goes with the oline the 3 ypc isn't going to get it done on any team but especially the Bombers. Perhaps in watching the film there were some things discovered regarding the reads and hitting the holes / not hesitating.

MOS won't read much into a few games.  He will continue on a similar path for at least a few more.  But yes you do need to produce in sports to keep your job but we are a long long ways away from that discussion in my opinion.

I can see McRae getting the call on sweeps much like Demski Also utilizing him on swing out passes to let him use his running ability.
They can rotate him with O Leary Orange. If they planned on using Grant as reciever they wouldn't need to activate McRae

Home/Road: The Blue Bombers are 1-0 on the road so far this season, courtesy their 19-12 win in Ottawa on June 17th. Toronto is 1-0 at home in 2022 after edging Montreal 20-19 in their opener. The Argos were 6-1 at home a year ago and has won nine of their last 10 at BMO Field.

BetRegal.ca odds: The Blue Bombers are favoured by 4.5 points. For more of Bet Regals numbers on this game,  here. (http://betregal.ca/sportsclick)

Streaks: Winnipeg: 3W; Toronto: 1L

Notable: The Bombers, B.C. Lions and Calgary Stampeders are all 3-0, making the first time three teams have been undefeated following Week 3 since 2004. B.C. improved to 3-0 after this week's win over Ottawa, the Bombers have a chance to go to 4-0 while the Stamps are on a bye.

The QBs

    Toronto will start veteran McLeod Bethel-Thompson, who has a career record of 14-18 and is 1-2 in starts against Winnipeg

    Winnipeg lines up Zach Collaros behind centre. He is 49-34 in his career and now 20-2 in his games as a starter in Winnipeg, including playoffs and two Grey Cup victories.

The Coaches

Winnipeg: Mike O'Shea: 70-55. O'Shea's 70 wins as a Blue Bombers head coach ranks third on the club's all-time list, behind only Bud Grant (102) and Cal Murphy (86).

Toronto: Argo head coach Ryan Dinwiddie - the former Blue Bombers QB - is 10-6 since becoming the boss in Toronto.
Blue Roster Shuffle

The Bombers depth chart features three changes from last week. Coming aboard are CB Winston Rose, running back Greg McCrae and linebacker Les Maruo.

Off this week are SB Nic Demski - who was moved to the six-game injured list - DE L.B. Mack III and CB Tyquwan Glass, who was released on Friday.

"We like what he's done at receiver. He's got some versatility to him and certainly once the ball gets into his hands, he's explosive. We'll see how many plays he gets. Brendan O'Leary-Orange is going to get at that spot (for Demski), so we?ll see what Greg can do."

Funny, MOS appears to be preparing for a TOR air assault.  But I think TOR will let AH dominate between the tackles.  Our weakest point is at DT, where we're good, but not stop-AH good.  Bighill and Thompson will have to predominantly stay on AH-spy duty.  Could give MBT time for some great option runs on his own.

If we can't stop AH I suspect the game will look much like the SSK game, and not in our favor.


Title: Re: Official Game Day Thread - Winnipeg at Toronto, July 4, 2022
Post by: TecnoGenius on July 04, 2022, 04:58:01 AM
Interesting. It would appear that Houston has not only played his way onto the roster but also the boundary corner. Rose is playing with Taylor over on the field side which we have never seen before.

Yes, that's the first big non-injury-forced shuffle they're trying this season.  It's an eye-opener.

But... it makes sense as before the boundary was too strong (on paper: assuming a 100% healthy Rose).  Now we split our best assets more evenly.  Nichols can help cover a weaker Houston and if he whiffs any tackles.  Taylor can help out Rose if he's still ailing.  If Rose is 100%, the strong-side becomes verboten for opponent QBs.

Actually, look at TOR's alignment: Banks is boundary WR.  If you had to pick an adversary for Houston, Banks is literally the perfect guy!  He's not hard to tackle at all.  He's hard to stay with.  Houston shows great speed and stickiness, so as long as he's in Banks' hip pocket his weak tackling should be irrelevant.

I love it.  This move makes Hall look even more genius.

I say we have no trouble shutting down MBT's air attack.  Our DEs might have a mega game.  INTs might be copious.  The only question mark is can we stop an insanely hungry and shoulder-chipped AH... It might come down to our LB play.

Regardless, this is an insanely juicy match-up and no matter who wins I'm going to enjoy watching it.  If we can win it, it will go a long way to proving we're still #1.

I think Pinball has made it clear he wants wins at home at all costs.  I'm not sure they prep much for away games; they just concentrate on winning the home games.  Makes sense to get more butts in seats.

Winnipeg is the better team.

Harris May have a short term boost, but he seems still out of shape
McLeod looks good if his job was a model.  He is so hot and cold?usually missing throws, like Fajardo.

I have not seen any practices, so have no idea if McRae is legit.  If he is fast, perhaps that?s our ace in the hole.
Defensively for the Bombers, they should be OK

I am sure most of us think toronto will lose.
Their home record and the Bombers last output games have not been great in Toronto.. a toss up? I did pick Winnipeg as my choice.  I however first picked Toronto?

Not much on the injury front from newspaper. Hmm!

If Grant is the DI then he won't see many reps on offence because an import will have to come off for anytime he's on the field.

McCrae could be used more on offence as a non DI as was suggested.

Yea, it depends what they want to do. One of them almost certainly will be a starter. If they are utilizing McCrae as the Demski replacement then he'll start. If they are using McCrae as a returner and planning to use Grant more in rotation with O'Leary-Orange then that's the other way to go.

that is what I am thinking...maybe he will get the odd jet sweep but I think GM will be the returner and Grant will get more offensive snaps with OL.  Or maybe the offense will look way different and catch TO off guard.

I looked up McCrae's draft profile on a couple of sites.  Both of them note that while he has decent hands, he got relatively little work as a receiver out of the backfield, and wasn't really used in the slot position (unlike his RB teammate).  He had something like 7 drops against 44 career receptions, most of which were as a check down rather than as a route runner.  

It's entirely speculation on my part, but based on that report, I think it is less likely they will be bringing in McCrae to fill Demski's spot.  I think they are going to mostly use O-Leary-Orange in that spot,  but bring in Grant from time to time to stretch the field, run a sweep, etc.  

I think McCrae will be used to take some of the load off Grant on returns, and I think they are going to give him a look to see how effective he can run in the A and B gaps.  He was a little undersized for an NCAA back, but still had a career ypc of 6.5.  I think they are using this opportunity while Brandon Alexander is out to see what they have in McCrae, and define their ratio options more completely.

We have no idea how or where any player fits into a new team, or a net scheme, or a for a new coach.  Sure, history can show where previous coaches and schemes have found a space for a guy, but many player realize getting pegged into certain holes can hurt their advancement, and they work to broaden/change their game...

I have no doubt Buck knows where/when he wants McCrae deployed in the offense, and if he will be used on teams, again, they know when and where to do so.

Yea, it depends what they want to do. One of them almost certainly will be a starter. If they are utilizing McCrae as the Demski replacement then he'll start. If they are using McCrae as a returner and planning to use Grant more in rotation with O'Leary-Orange then that's the other way to go. 

I wouldn't call or expect either to be a full time starter per se. One of them should see the offence at times as a rotation player. Depending on how successful that turns out we may see reps increased during the game.

I'm not surprised they are taking a look at McCrae but I thought Harrison might be the one to look at this week. He'd be the one true receiver and the issue is whether O'Leary-Orange is the best alternative to start replacing Demski?

There is really no real sample size for any of them besides pre season.

So we'll see how this goes. I'll be pleased if we see some productivity from any of Grant, McCrae or O'Leary-Orange.

I'm not really sure what to expect from who or how. lol :)

Post by: Sir Blue and Gold on July 04, 2022, 02:34:57 PM
that is what I am thinking...maybe he will get the odd jet sweep but I think GM will be the returner and Grant will get more offensive snaps with OL.  Or maybe the offense will look way different and catch TO off guard.

Probably. This makes the most sense. It's also a very O'Shea thing to do. Grant has been here and put in the time. I would be surprised if he doesn't get the first shot and a lot of offensive snaps tonight. McCrae likely gets to return kicks and keep Grant fresh.

I haven't seen an Argo depth chart. Their roster doesn't actually show any IR lists and their daily IR report literally shows every player on it as questionable ( 15 players ).

Their depth chart from last week did show 15 players on IR with 7 of them on 6 game IR. So there could be some 1 game IR players returning?

They don't have many choices. One Canadian RB and one FB were on their 1 game IR last week. Another Canadian RB with 3 carries and 10 yards on the AR.  Import RB Leake has no CFL carries on the AR. None on PR at the moment.

So not much experience at RB if A. Harris needs to get spelled or has injury limitations.

Pretty sure the Bombers listed Harris as questionable for just about every game he did play last year. He's basically always hampered by something. He'll be ready for the game for sure.

I understand the rationale personnel-wise. The "let's get the win for Andrew because his old team snubbed him" motivation seems strange to me, though.

Anything to "motivate" I guess...

AH33 vs AB4 is going to be interesting.  Our Dline too.  And Thompson coming downhill... we know the patented AH33 spinorama, we know AH33 needs to be wrapped up. 

If he's having his normal hammy issues, that spin move is going to hurt.  And any time he gets tackled low, there's a chance of it getting hurt again, or him reacting to the hit.  I remember more than once seeing him come out of a pile fuming mad... and the ref's aren't taking post tackle tantrums very well this year...

Any other game, we are all wishing him well.  But in this one, especially if he "wants to prove what Winnipeg missed out on" in a game, rather than a workout last off season, I have no sympathy for him, and hope none of our guys let up at all on him.

Hamstring injuries early in the season never bode well for any player, especially one who is 35 and pushing the football longevity envelope.    MOS I'm sure was thinking about him last night and I'm sure it was the same for AH33.    

One thing is for certain...there will be some serious leather popping tonight.   Win or lose (preferably win) I hope it's a good game for both teams.   TO has serious lack of fan support and Pinball is focused on winning at home.

I hope AH doesn't have a good week this week, every other week of the regular season I hope he does....

T.O has talent and is at home after being embarrassed last week. We are down our starting center, on a already weak line (compared to previous years) Have not been able to establish a run game yet this year and are without Demski. This will in no way be an easy game to win.

On offence we need to win the LOS and get the run game going
On defence we need to win the LOS and not let the T.O run game get going

No kidding.  Wasn't it in TOR playing for TOR that SJ Green made his big comeback and had like 200 yards, 2+ TDs and a bazillion fantasy points vs MTL?

Looks like TOR likes to harness the chip these superstars have when playing against their old team.  It's a smart play.  If TOR actually gameplans around feeding AH (ground and air) then AH could have a record night.  Too bad we don't have Stove anymore...

To predict a players injury show you have little respect the amazing athletes of this league.  To suggest that father time always wins is twisting the knife.  Seen this type of rhetoric last year when someone was against Lucky and suggested that he would get hurt and then bragged about it after (hurt hand or wrist?).  I can't remember who that was but the attitude on here can be sickening and I would like posters to remember to treat the athletes with more respect when posting.

I watched a few minutes at the beginning and maybe the last 2 minutes to see who won. Also was curious to see how many fans showed up. I suppose there could have been a bunch of free tickets too.

Again, this appears to be a horrible non money making business model. Now I'm just wondering when we'll hear if there is a go forward plan or not.

I agree. It's been very disappointing listening to some posters almost wanting A. Harris to fail because he's no long on our roster. Yes father time catches up with everybody eventually.

We have about 8 players on our 6 game IR including some that were injured in 2021 or during TC. Time is not the only factor in a violent sport. There are over 100 players across the CFL on various IR lists.

Many of them are RB's including Stanback and Wilder on 6 game IR's.

Thanks for the support on this issue.  Good points on the injury lists.  Its pretty sad how people have commented like this about Harris.  Seen this behavior before from some on this forum when players leave.  Ah well, perhaps by speaking out about it, maybe people will change!

There's been a lot of criticism of our play on our back end due to our injuries by a lot of people and for good reason at times

my point is our d is pretty **** good

always has been for the last few years under this regime and just reminding folks take it easy and take the Long View patience pays off Hall is boss

Look back to a couple games ago game day thread and report back, i was trolled hard for my support for our d by a very special friend of mine lol

There's been a lot of criticism of our play on our back end due to our injuries by a lot of people and for good reason at times

my point is our d is pretty **** good

always has been for the last few years under this regime and just reminding folks take it easy and take the Long View patience pays off Hall is boss

And full disclosure right now I characterize our D as good and will be great once we get completely healthy

Yeah right, that's why you were banned by the head Moderator.

Liked our ST

Didn't like our run blocking / running

Liked the jet sweeps

O line is a weakness - pass and run blocking 

Overall offense is not very good - sorry

Kyrie hurt is bad

on point. The lack of a running game IS a concern to me at this point. Interior run blocking is complete non existent and pass blocking is spotty at best. Half time adjustments are key and we seem to be very good at that this year.

Yeah that's a tough one I'm not so sure that was the right call in the moment I think as a ref I would have called that an interception and then you would have to review it and I don't think you could overturn that play if it was called an interception but it's very close I would say the players likely down and the ground likely  caused that ball to come out after he was down

That?s the way I saw it to. Initially he no doubt intercepted it, but didn?t survive contact with the ground, ball was scooped up. Boom, TD Argos. It stinks, it sucks, but what can you do.

Sad part is bombers have totally outlplayed the Argos but only have a 7 point lead, this is anyone?s ball game

The INT/TD is a very weird play.

I think it's incomplete because when it was between Banks' knees it appeared to touch the turf a couple of times.  But it didn't kick up dirt because he was pretty stationary.

I can see how they allowed Banks to steal it (not DBC) because Houston was falling and has to "survive the ground".  He didn't and the ball was still live.

Fluke play will have the fans chattering for a while.

That?s the way I saw it to. Initially he no doubt intercepted it, but didn?t survive contact with the ground, ball was scooped up. Boom, TD Argos. It stinks, it sucks, but what can you do.

Sad part is bombers have totally outlplayed the Argos but only have a 7 point lead, this is anyone?s ball game

Houston gotta have stronger hands and dominate for the the possession

Time for defence to step up.  MBT has momentum. 

Our 2 and short play calling and execution has been very bad

Defence is ok.  Offence has put 10 pts up.  Time to earn their money.  They are not getting it done.

It's all about field position at the moment neither team is going to really light it up in the second half but we need to start eating the clock running the ball and getting on the right side of the field then we'll be fine

Omg -- well, we'll obviously take the win but it wasn't very convincing. Injuries piling up a little bit and our offense is really missing an effective run game. We tried to spread things out this week which is great with how defenses are playing us but the results were mixed. We're also really missing a deep threat. That's tough. We're asking a lot from Collaros every week. Particularly the mid range passing game is really the only place we can hang our hat offensively but it sure it crowded there as a result. It's probably not sustainable but I'm excited to find out.

No run game whatsoever.

Not overly impressed with play calling. Seems very conservative.

Defence giving up all those outs when that's mostly what they were throwing.
You got that right. We re 4-0 and arguably should be 1-3, not complaining, but sooner or later we need to get on the right track. BC will slaughter us next week

https://www.cfl.ca/games/6226/winnipeg-blue-bombers-vs-toronto-argonauts/#preview

TORONTO ? The Toronto Argonauts were able to best the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in a Monday night matchup from BMO Field.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers were finally able to get the better of the Toronto Argonauts at BMO Field on Monday night. Winnipeg had not won a game in Toronto since 2018 prior to the win in Week 4.

The Bombers continued their early season success, improving to a 4-0 record with a 23-22 win over the Argonauts in Week 4.

It was the defence for Winnipeg that once again helped them to victory. The team opened the game with a huge interception return for a touchdown and continued an impressive effort, finishing the game with three sacks, two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Winnipeg quarterback, Zach Collaros once again led his team to victory with pin-point passing as the veteran quarterback completed 21 of 35 passes for 215 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Rookie receiver, Dalton Schoen appeared to be Collaros? favourite target on Monday night, catching five of his seven targets for a team-high 73 yards, but it was his teammate Drew Wolitarsky who hauled in the lone touchdown pass.

Greg Ellingson was able to fin production on limited targets against Toronto, the veteran receiver caught all three of his targets and contributed 50 yards.


 :D.  Even the CFL wanted the Argos to win!

Comment # 2 after reading the earlier posts I missed while watching the game.

There were some great plays and some lucky plays by both teams.

IMO Banks didn't score. After he stripped the ball from Houston is landed between his knees and the nose of the ball was on the ground. Bummer but not every call goes our way or is always correct.

Lawson seems to be getting more reps and playing well. He had a chance for a pic 6 with 2 blockers in front of him. The key component is CATCH the ball please. Great effort.

I was concerned the int Collaros threw before half time and taking away a FG chance would come back to haunt us. Points plus momentum for Argos.

Really concerned about injuries to Wilson. I think 6 game IR at the least but if it's an achilles he's finished for 2022. Hardrick got dinged twice as well.

Didn't like our soft coverage in the secondary or why they couldn't cover all that stuff to the sidelines. Receivers wide open too often.

On a positive note I think Rutledge is playing well. Houston had a good game except one play obviously.

no doubt he is a warrior! Impressive performance tonight!!! But he is on a poor team. QB play is puzzling to say the least and the coaching is well sub par. I do think they have a great WR corps. Bette than ours.

For Pinball to need to come down and the purify the waters is undoubtedly strange and concerning. Tells me Dinwiddie is not HC ready yet. Banks is one strange cat. Maybe Baker said something nasty to Banks but who knows.

Bring on the Lions. I know the way they played and the way we played it looks like the Lions could blow us out.

I don't buy that thought. It may be a close game but IMO even the short week doesn't convince me that the Lions win big.

The trend I've noticed since the 2021 playoffs is that when there is a need for a big play in a tight game the Bombers seems to come through. That's been the case this year too.

IMO the Bombers play a hard fought game in Vancouver. Will they win? Not 100% convinced but I don't think the Lions are a good as they've looked so far. Very good but it's early.

I guess we'll see on Friday. I'm staying home because they seem to lose more often when I go to the game here!! I'm cursed.

Maybe, but I would bet there will be fines within the Argos organization or some form of internal discipline. Then Pinball/ Dinwiddie can say the famous... it's a non issue and has been handled internally.

Bring on the Lions. I know the way they played and the way we played it looks like the Lions could blow us out.

I don't buy that thought. It may be a close game but IMO even the short week doesn't convince me that the Lions win big.

The trend I've noticed since the 2021 playoffs is that when there is a need for a big play in a tight game the Bombers seems to come through. That's been the case this year too.

IMO the Bombers play a hard fought game in Vancouver. Will they win? Not 100% convinced but I don't think the Lions are a good as they've looked so far. Very good but it's early.

I guess we'll see on Friday. I'm staying home because they seem to lose more often when I go to the game here!! I'm cursed.
We share about the same opinion on this upcoming game

there's been some people that have doubted him on here

 Some people doubted him last year when he got hurt and a lot of people douted him after he left here

on top of that people were actually seem to be cheering for him to get hurt and we're cheering when he would get pulled out of games (injured) and saying how they were right about the bombers moving on from him it's been pretty sickening really

Exactly and that's what's really pathetic and sad to say about a top player that was instrumental in winning 2 Grey Cups in Winnipeg.

I disagree.

Like I said, no one doubts his ability. When healthy, he?s still the best.

Do people doubt his availability? Absolutely. For good reason. He is starting to deal with both injuries and the increasing difficulty of recovering from injuries as he gets older. That?s life.

I also disagree that people were ?wishing? for him to get injured. Again, this was the first game  he?s finished this season. It?s not a hope, it?s just a guess based on recent history.

I agree. Pinball s presence on the sideline to address the Banks issue tells me dinwiddie either can?t handle the situation or the players don?t respect him. Can you imagine if this happened on our bench and Walters came in to resolve it?? First of all, MOS wouldn?t let this happen, but Pinball s presence on their sideline is a huge red flag in hog town

If Wilson (and Clements) injuries are serious, I can see the Bombers signing Awe. I believe he is still a free-agent after the Lions released him.

Last thoughts for the night. Most of this week I suggested we'd probably need to bring Walker back on and take off Wilcots. That was due to my belief we'd need more muscle and weight at DT.

That didn't happen and Walker ended up on the 1 game IR. A. Harris ran for 100+ yards but he's been known to do that. Our DE's didn't get as much pressure outside and MBT was throwing for  lot of yardage.

Lions have more speed in their run game but less power up the middle.

So will Walker be healthy and do we make a switch on the DL? If he's not healthy we might add Mack.

Essentially thinking Wilson won't be playing against the Lions so we'll add an import. We're running out of bodies on defence somewhat so that's what I'll be wondering about for this game.

Clements appeared to hurt his wrist but only missed a few plays. I think he'll be able to play. That said, IMO Awe would be a stronger player at WIL and I'd be on the phone tonight to his agent.

Clements didn't seem to play badly but Awe is a top LB with seasons under his belt as a starter.

We are really banged up and will have to play much better on Offence to stay with the high flying Lions.   The Defence won this game for us once again but were left on the field too long and too often.    We really have nobody on Offence to stretch the field without Demski.    There aren't a lot of YAC being made by any player.    AH was a beast tonight and made sure losses into substantial gains.   We are missing that....especially with Demski out.  
On Saturday one team will emerge as undefeated.....my heart is always with the Bombers but to bet money on them this week would require odds of 3 or 4 to 1.

We're all grumpy about this win yet we are still in first place......better times will come when we get all our wounded back

Wilson is so good though and a team leader as well. Bombers don't have another LB on the PR so something needs to happen. 4 games and our 6 game IR is growing every week.

As I said, IMO Awe is a top LB that wants to start. He may not be affordable but that's a different conversation.

I think you guys are reaching a bit.

As fans, there is a tendency to hope that our management made the right choice by moving on when we did - so maybe there is vindication somewhat in seeing him unsurprisingly deal with these nagging injuries. And Andrew certainly wasn't gracious on his way out so - for the time being - fans aren't feeling particularity gracious his way either.

It doesn't feel disrespectful to me. It's simply acknowledgment of where we as a team and Andrew as a player are at this point in time. With a little fan bias thrown in.

AH33 had himself a nice game, but what a gong show of a team he is on. What went on at the Argos bench was terrible for a pro team. I have never had my High School kids act like that. Terrible.

For Pinball to need to come down and the purify the waters is undoubtedly strange and concerning. Tells me Dinwiddie is not HC ready yet. Banks is one strange cat. Maybe Baker said something nasty to Banks but who knows.

It looked to me like Philip Blake told Banks to ?hold onto the @@@@@@ ball.? Then when the two of them went at it, he DEFINITELY told Banks to stfu.

Bombers were quite injury free in last years shortened season. This season not so lucky. They also lost some talented players and replacements not up to speed yet or maybe never will be. Each season is a new adventure. To expect them to dominate like last year was never on my radar.

Like some others have mentioned this team seems to know how to rise up for big games the last 2+ seasons, so I think they will hang tough with bc. Too many injuries to maybe overcome though. Offence has to play it?s best game of the year for sure to have a chance

An ugly win tonight, but at the end of the season it still counts in the standings. Maybe some karma for the Argos in fluking out that Montreal game earlier on a missed fg chipshot.  Also bombers almost always have rough games in Toronto for some reason, so I am not on the doom and gloom bandwagon based on one game

Going over the older posts... game happened to fast to reply on the fly!

I didn't see the face mask?

That's because there was none.  Fake call.  I can see how they thought FM, but it wasn't there.

Great a holding call saved us.

Ya, on a hold far weaker than what SSK was getting away with a ton the other night!  Ironic.  Yes, it was a real hold in this game, though weak.  Proulx's crew clearly calls a cleaner game.

Proulx has got to do games in Regina!!! The Riders holds will finally get called!!!!

Beat me to it.  Unfortunately they often keep Proulx out East.

BO stepping out of bounds before getting the 1st down, C'mon man!

Rookie mistake.  He wasn't aware of down and distance.  This is teachable, he'll improve.  He did have momo but could have stick a foot and gone north.  All he had to do was fall forward for 1 more yard.

Achilles...?

"Extreme Injury Reporter" Tecno says yes.  Watched it a few times.  Completely non-contact.  Trying to stop.  Goes down, does the ol' limp foot shuffle off the field.  Usually achilles.

Who do we have on the PR that is a drop-in with no drop-off?  And our NAT time-bider is Briggs who is also 6-gamed, right?  Might have to hit FA and couch-sitters with the KW phone.

Classic little house reference...love it !!

Haha, is that the same episode the blind school burned down again?

Too greed, take the 3 IMO

Zach saw the flag and thought free play.  I knew instantly it was offside against us, but Zach doesn't have the side view we do  :D :D  I am perfectly fine with him taking a "free shot" even if it wasn't.

It's amazing how Harris can routinely get 2-3 yards on what should be a stop and we are lucky to get that much on a run play that seems to work...

Yup, and his always falling for 2 more yards while he's wrapped up.  He's a master.  It's weird that more of that couldn't rub off on BO/JA.

Bombers should drop about 3 spots in the power rankings

No way.  I thought we outplayed TOR most of the night.  I really do think we went "prevent O" to make TOR have to beat us.  Funny thing is MBT almost pulled it off.

Didn't like our soft coverage in the secondary or why they couldn't cover all that stuff to the sidelines. Receivers wide open too often.

MBT was throwing a lot of timing routes which are near impossible to defend.  You just hope they don't make those.  The nearly-OOB passes are also hard to defend.  TOR seems to put emphasis on these and it's one of their strong suits.

Houston did do well and was in Banks' back pocket on a go, which is not easy!  Just bad luck on that INT-TD.  I was very very pleased with Houston tonight.  The only one who whiffed on a tackle was Rose, and it was already 1st down anyhow so it didn't cost us much.

Awesome game.  What entertainment!!  So much fun.  A double-tip INT yet again?  One of the weirdest INT-TD plays ever in pro football?  Another missed PAT kick in the CFL?  Wild and wacky.

Does WPG still win if we go to OT?  I think yes, with 66% likelihood.  TOR would have the momo, but WPG has proven we can nail things down in OT.  I was very eager for OT and was slightly disappointed we won this way.  But I'll take it: easier on the ticker.

TOR used AH as decoy and X and short in 4th Q... AH hurt or just part of the gameplan after setting us up to expect the run?  I really thought AH should have been used more in the redzone plays.  That Bighill tip-INT especially should have been run plays, not risky passes.  Why wouldn't they want to let AH score a TD against us?  Would have demoralized us more than a pass TD.  Oh ya, and I had AH in fantasy, so really needed a couple of TDs  :D :D

Apparently Zach admitted to checking into a lot of those screens at the line.

It doesn't completely absolve Buck, but helps explain why there were so many.

Definitely was frustrating tonight. O isn't firing on all cylinders. ZC8 deep throws were off all night. I enjoy a good screen a couple of times a game, or a draw play here and there, but far to many swing passes.

What?s wrong with the check down to Woli for positive yardage up field?? A couple of those swing passes al,ost got our players killed. The ball has got to get there a lot quicker, but still, just use the old reliable check down on the sideline pass.

You can tell the checkdowns vs the called screens.  There were a lot of called hitch screens.  I still think Buck went very conservative on purpose.

Here's the thing about the forward pass hitch screen: it's a no-risk play.  Ya, you can lose 1-2 yards.  But it can never be an INT because the timing doesn't allow a D to get behind the receiver.  It's kind of like a run play; should be zero risk of turnover.  We didn't have a great run game (no gut run game at all) so instead Buck turns to this hitch screen.

It's funny, as in another thread we were talking about how hitch screens usually amount to nothing; in any team.  And here we are...

But, we did "turn the O back on" again on that last drive of ours, showing that we can vary the dial when we need to.  Didn't get us the TD we wanted, but it was a good clock-killing drive to get us 3.

I wonder, how much of this is Buck getting conservative vs MOS telling him to make TOR beat us?

ZC8 doesn't have the quickest release. He also floats a few balls to receivers each game. One throw to GE2 in the the 3rd. quarter. If that ball gets to him a little quicker, he had room to run.

I don't have much time for that argument.

Buck is the one who still needs to prove himself. And I've never heard any indication of MOS being a micromanager.

Ya, and why have we abandoned the RB-slips-away 8-10 yards up the middle dump passes?  We used to do those do AH all day every day in '18-'19.  We literally never checkdown into the middle.  Is BO incapable of that?

Not incapable. But at this stage of his career, he is inferior to an experienced tailback like Harris when it comes to those types of plays.

It's been a fiesty game thread. We knew the 2022 team was going to be different then the 2021 team. It's going to take some time but we've been winning. Injuries are really hurting us now.

The only thing I'm not sure we can overcome is our lack of run game. McCrae didn't jump out as an instant upgrade but our blocking and play calling aren't helping.

Big test against the Lions who probably are favoured. Home game for them and short week for us.

It probably doesn't have to be, though. The defense is looking to be the strength of this team, which isn't so different from the 2019 run or even certain games last season.

As long as the offense isn't turning over the ball, they should continue to improve as a unit in the coming games.

Yep....agree 100%.   Zach is still able to make key plays as well and is now ranked 4th amongst CFL QBs.    We are hurting big time and losing Wilson who is underrated imho, isn't helping whatsoever.   We lack firepower to claw back when trailing and for us to win our D has to keep us close on Saturated or the Lions could run away with this one.  
One thing is certain....we won't go undefeated this season.

If Kyrie Wilson joins Brandon Alexander, Nic Demski, and Michael Couture on the 6-game injured list, that?s some serious front line talent on the sideline. Not sure about Hardrick and Ellingson, who hobbled through the game in Toronto.

That's a lot of reading between the lines. I looked like one of those really bad non contact injuries though so he probably does end up there.

If Wilson (and Clements) injuries are serious, I can see the Bombers signing Awe. I believe he is still a free-agent after the Lions released him.

Agreed, it looks like Wilson's injury is serious and possibly long term based on how he could not put any weight on his left leg. Awe maybe a good pick up at this point.

I'd be surprised if Awe isn't on his way to Mtl. to replace Tre Watson at MLB, as Awe's main complaint was not playing enough.  As for Watson's issue it sounds fairly minor but who knows, he doesn't come across as a bad dude.

I think he had a knee injury. Whether he's able to come off IR after 6 games is a question. However, that's 2 more games before he can even practice at the moment. Wouldn't want Gauthier trying to play WIL. Cadwallader or Maruo more likely to see action if Clements gets hurt.

I like Hansen as much as the next guy, but at 6?3? and 250lbs, his pass coverage ability is not up to the position. Especially with the new hash marks, which now make  a WIL LB a SAM ?lite? (or more correctly a SAM heavy? ) since they have more ground to cover in pass coverage.

I like Hansen as much as the next guy, but at 6?3? and 250lbs, his pass coverage ability is not up to the position. Especially with the new hash marks, which now make  a WIL LB a SAM ?lite? (or more correctly a SAM heavy? ) since they have more ground to cover in pass coverage.

Could you move Ford to Taylor's spot and put Taylor at WILL?  I've always thought of Taylor as more a SAM/WILL anyhow, don't know why.  Or, Rutledge to WILL and Taylor to SAM and Ford to DB?

Of course, that all hinges on Ford being instantly ready for the big leagues...  That's a big "if".

That said, we don't necessarily have to bring in a new WILL: we could possibly bring in a SAM or HB and shuffle things a bit.

I was disappointed that with Wilson down we brought in every single player and the kitchen sink at WILL/MIKE shuffling like crazy, except Cadwallader.  And Caddie is slotted at WILL.  I'm a big Caddie fan.  Guess we think the kid ain't ready.  But literally every other LB got reps, even GLOBman, The Car Dealer, and Clements!

The new hashmark thing has been overblown.  Jones thought the WLB would need to evolve into a body type, like the SLB.  So far only Ottawa has gone lighter at WLB.

If you need to shuffle players (out if necessity) what I think the better move is put Thompson in WIL. Hallett in FS backed up by Rene.

What I can see happening this week (if we dont bring in a new guy) is Clements start backed up by Cadwallader and Karamoko (global). So basically we are playing 3 globals.

Clements is certainly starting in BC unless he can't due to injury. Even if we bring someone in there is one practice. It's also not like O'Shea not to give the person who is here a chance. Clements gets first crack, if there's a big problem or he's hurt then I'm sure the phone calls ramp up. And Awe asking to be released because he wasn't starting is not exactly a good way to play for O'Shea. He's probably a 'if we're desperate' option.

It really depends on whether the Bombers view Awe as a big upgrade over Clements. If they see it as a saw off or Clements just needing experience they will go with him. If they think Awe is a better player flat out, I think the Bombers go after him. Osh will always go with the next man up, but he also is not one to pass up a better player if it will help his team and they can get him. That being said, I really like Clements so far. I think he has played well.

I don't doubt Awe is fielding calls right now, but I'd say a huge part of his decision between us and MTL would be how bad is Wilson's injury.  If it is Achilles tear, then he signs here.  If it is strain, 4-6 weeks, he picks MTL.

Just my take, based on his wanting to start.

As to whether MOS wants a guy that asked for a release rather than sit in a backup role (again, we do not know if the option was backup. PR or IR...) yes, MOS doesn't like a "quitter", but MOS loves a guy that wants to start, steals reps to get noticed, etc... The question is, was Awe putting in the reps/effort to win a starting role and got frustrated when it wasn't given to him, or did he expect the role, and show up out of shape and lost the spot...

According to Bauming the Bombers are fairly high on Clements and think he has a bright future with the team, with F.A. the way it is he may become a starter next year, you never know. The problem right now isn't finding a replacement for Clements, but backing him up until Briggs recovers.  Unless it's a long-term injury he should make his return within the next couple of weeks, but again you never know.

This. In house, it seems like Clements would take Wilson's spot. That still doesn't address the lack of depth, though. Seems like a no brainer to try and get Awe.

Post by: theaardvark on July 06, 2022, 03:18:14 PM
Clements is backup/development.  Hopefully he can be rushed in.  Remember lamenting Santos-Knox moving on?  Wilson learned behind him and stepped up.  Good teams have a progression, which can get accelerated by injury.

If Clements is not ready, then sure, Awe has been a stud in this league, *IF* he is in game shape, and his head is where it needs to be, he would be a great addition, especially if Wilson is on the 6 game or worse, out for the year.  We would have the SMS for Awe.

But we already did make at least 2 when we were running sets with Biggie at WILL and the backups rotating in at MIKE.  Shuffling around one DB won't kill us.

We certainly would make 2 (or even 3) changes if we can't find a solution to that one problem (WILL).

Who is this Clements guy?  Before this week I had never heard of him.  I couldn't even tell you if he's NAT or IMP, rookie or sophomore.  Nor do I know if he's any good.

I don't think Thompson at WILL is the path forward.

I doubt we bring in anyone new for the BC game: simply not enough time.  Glass really pulled a Gaitor, as he could have had a chance at coming back in after just 1 week off with a big shuffle.  What a maroon.

When do we get Alexander back...? ...?

You must not be paying attention, then. He's an American (https://www.cfl.ca/players/malik-clements/165468/ (https://www.cfl.ca/players/malik-clements/165468/)) who played for the Elks last season in a rotational/ST role and the Bombers signed him back in March.

He stood out nicely on Monday in place of Wilson, putting up half a dozen tackles and a sack. He's worth watching.

I never noticed Clements last year but apparently he played 7 games for the Elks in which he had 13 tackles, don't know if he was a backup or starter.  The Bombers signed him this spring shortly after the Elks cut him loose after Jones came to town.

That's a very good sign, then.  One thing I've learned is The Mafia is extremely talented at spotting future star players on other teams and snapping them up when they are underappreciated.  Maston, Taylor, Adams, Demski... the list is very long.

I like the idea of moving Thompson to LB and working something else out for Safety. He seems to tackle pretty well, but is a little weaker in coverage... Maybe even Ford could play safety?

I wouldn't expect Wilson back in 2022. I hope I'm wrong but if its an achilles, he may miss part of 2023 too.

Now that the Als fired K.Jones I doubt any player will consider them as 1st choice option.

Clements might have a bright future. That said he's played in 11 CFL games and IIRC has never started yet. As I mentioned about Awe, he was 4th in CFL DT's and was 4 ahead of Bighill. So he's no slouch.

So the question is who is better today versus thinking about 2023. That and we don't have any import LB's as depth.

O'Shea may have soured on Awe ad / or his salary demands might be too high. All you can do is speak with has agent. If not, bring in someone for our PR that would shortly be activated as a DI.

Obviously Clements will need to start this week and we'll see how he does. I hope he does very well but Awe is a proven defensive all star NOW.

Note that O'Shea is always high on back up players. He's high on Agudosi and a few other receivers that were released.

That could work.  Mack had a play a couple of weeks back where he showed some speed motoring down the field after a RB.  And he has power.  Probably not as fast as Wilson though.  Depends on whether this "WILL is now a SAM" theory holds water, I guess.

Can he drop into pass coverage though? If he can then perhaps our depth is better than I thought. We should still be looking to add a LB to our PR.

Just talking of WIEGHT, based on my own observations on roster pages...
MIKE weight normally come at 225-235. WIL come a little lighter than that normally at 215-220.
Of course there are things need to be considered like speed, strength, etc...

Biggie played WIL in BC (w/ Soli) before then played MIKE after that. Dean played MIKE @ Ham then WIL @ Ssk.
I remember Ian Wild was our WIL and he is on the 215-220 when he was moved to the MIKE position, RBs was running through him.

I wonder if the Bombers had any interest at all. They may not have or he may not have wanted to come here. Unless Walters says something we won't really know.

Time to move forward and cheer on Clements in his new role as the starter. Still might need an addition to the PR for depth even if Mack is the new back up.

I bet we kicked the tires, but again, Wilson just got added to the six game, and if we do not know the extent of his injuries, I don't think they would have told Awe, so Awe probably saw this as potentially a temp gig. 

Regardless the dumpster fire in MTL for coaching, you can bet Machiochacha made a very persuasive pitch, knowing he needed a Mike.  Badly.  So, even with the SMS$ saving and the playoff money potential, I can see MTL outbidding us as well as it being full time. 

He is a thumper, for sure, and will help MTL...

That's the new "theory".  Jones said it, booth guys/panel say it, but some starting to question it?  I think the jury is still out.

One thing I have identified: teams are attacking the weak side a heck of a lot more now, both on the run and pass.  There are some drives where it's just constant weak side attack.

Not really sure why.... sure there's more room to work, but the wide side should also be more attractive now, too.  Unless the "theory" is correct and all these WILLs are not up to covering that bigger range?

Clements looked good but it was Toronto and Clements has never started again. Has to start at some point and he could be the next Wilson.

Awe is an immediate known quantity but we don't know if the Bombers even approached him.

Coaches watch players like Clements in practice and he may turn out to be exceptional.

Regardless, we do need depth and I'm not convinced Mack is a suitable fit to be the back up. I could be wrong. So lets see how things go.

It's not as bad as you're making it out to be.

Cadwallader would be fine as a third man up if needed, Gauthier and Marou could be used at WILL as easily as at MLB, Hansen could be used in an emergency too.

If Rutledge goes down, you can play around with the DBs if needed.
