Derel Walker has been less than impressive in Edmonton, shoots his mouth off then drops very catchable passes. Pass on 87, he's going to fade to black soon

It's guilty by being guilty....

He was aware and covered it up. I think Chipman and TrueNorth need to send the guy packing before Bettman does it himself, tbh.

Nice to see you admitting that Collaros has been THE difference maker that propelled Bombers from consistent middle of the road teams to dominant. We agree on that too.

I would absolutely call for MOS to be fired if he didn't win any playoff games last season. I said that in the middle of last season and I stick by it. I said No Collaros = No playoff wins. I stick by that & we wouldn't be dominate this year despite our defence because Nichols, especially now, is no Collaros. I didn't like the Collaros trade because I thought he'd be injured the first time he got hit. I was wrong about that and happy to be wrong.

I've been consistent since the 2018 Western final loss to Calgary that the Bombers would not go the next step with Nichols as QB. No long ball consistency or arm strength. I was at that playoff game and you just knew Calgary had no worries once they got the lead. No fear of any long pass unless someone got a major YAC play. I had a sinking feeling all game once they got behind and showed NO ability for a big play on offence. Dink and Dunk, only works if you consistently complete passes. It was not even a cold day in Calgary, so could not blame the conditions.

If Collaros had been the Bombers QB that year, the Bombers would have a better shot at going to the Grey Cup. Calgary was ripe for the picking that 2018 western final. I would add picking up Willie Jefferson was a major factor too in 2019.

Not sure why you would be against the Collaros trade in 2019. They had nothing to lose by that point. Nichols was gone for the year. Strevler was limping all the last month of the season and his passing was always left desiring in his two years with the Bombers. They MAY have won the Western semi-final with Strevler playing as Bo was so cold in that game. Strevler in the Western final Bombers lose. He would have thrown up an interception or two. In the playoffs I think Strevler was just operating on one leg and pure guts. The nuts and bolts were present on this team in 2019, but Collaros was a bit of luck and a stroke of genius at the same time for the final push. I was at least expecting average play from him, but he tore it up and fit right in immediately which was the surprising part. That come from behind win in the last game vs Calgary just lit up a spark for this team. They saw a new gunslinger was in town and it built from there. Like a goalie in hockey....he lets in too many sieve goals it drags a team down. He leads you to some major victories you believe in him....same with a good qb. Just having "hope" is sometimes enough for a team to lay it all out on the line.

Hammering Calgary in the western semi really propelled this team I think even more. Bombers have been pitiful in Calgary for almost 20 years before then!  Maybe only two regular season victories there over that time, and one I know was a mean nothing game for the Stamps. They had a bye that last regular season weekend, so it gave them more time to prepare than a usual semi-final team may have. Like a monkey off their backs winning such a crucial game, at least organization wise. They had beaten the Riders in a playoff game the year before, so not as much a mountain to climb mentally. Was still a very close game, but I think they had more belief they could win that game than vs the Stamps.

Ottawa definently has it the worst.

The Oline is bad, except for Korte.

QB, who knows what the future holds.  All of them could be gone by next camp.

They seem to have found a nice young running back.

Recievers need an upgrade, or maybe it's the QBs throwing to them.

They do have pieces on defense.

They definitely need to solve the QB question.  Not sure if Duck will be the answer or if they look to pick up a veteran in the off season. 

More importantly, they need to reinforce the patchwork online.  No QB can function without time.
I like Ryan Davis, RJ Harris and Behar as receivers.  But they need a stud receiver rather than stopgap Stafford.  I bet Derel Walker could be had.  I also think they should move on from Coombs.

I agree that their new RB looks decent, but it took way too long to move on from Flanders.  Their defence is competitive, when they aren't left out there all night.

They said outbreak in Norway House is a major contributor to the numbers today.  Regardless we are going in the wrong direction.  Other Provinces case counts are going down and we are going up...for whatever reason our "waves" are always behind the others.  Buckle up and roll up your sleeve.

Our "up" is far below other provinces "down"...  we're doing fine...

Not out of the woods yet either, best not to pretend it's over. BC announced their plans for a 3rd vaccination today, I guess they're stupids.

No one said anything about being out of the woods... but double vaxxed and mitigated events are the norm now, and very safe to attend. 

Not sure if you knew, but Manitoba is doing 3rd shots...  I will get mine by Dec 6th... or sooner...
