Bombers D will have to control Adams and bring a lot of pressure. Special teams will have to be just that, special. Strv17 have play like he did against the Riders. Ball control, zero turnovers, and keep the penalties in check.

I think we'll be good.  SSK DL was garbage tonight and they still beat MTL.  With our pressure we should have no trouble.  And Adams isn't nearly as good a scrambler as Fajardo.

MTL doesn't spread the ball around, so just cover Bray and Posey tight, loose on Lewis, and ignore (relatively) the others.  Our run D should have no trouble against Stanback.

MTL D is an interesting beast and I'm not sure how to read them yet.  What are they good at?  Nothing and everything?  They seem medium-good at it all.  I wish I could pick a weakness for them.  Probably the deep ball.  AH33 should have good success against them, too, but he has to be played at unexpected times, along with Strev's rush, so Muamba (and Levels) doesn't cheat up.

At least crowd noise isn't a thing in MTL!  If we can get our usual big lead by halftime we should be ok as MTL seems to get morale problems when things don't go their way.

West division is really tight at the moment. Every game we win keeps us ahead of the rest. Hopefully we get a few injured players back for the last 6 games. A few should be back this week.

Montreal is improving but they had a long way to go.

We did what we had to before the break. We won 2 out of 3 and now we find ourselves still leading the West.

But you're right, every win gives us that one game lead, any loss likely brings us down to a tie with Calgary.

We have to keep winning.

I don`t forsee too much trouble against Mtl. With AH#33 back I think we`ll see a calm. cool. and collected Strevallar.

I foresee a tough road game and a close game decided late like the one against the Riders.   They have good receivers and a solid RB and a respectable D.

I expect a comfortable win. The only question is whether we are comfortable by half time or whether it takes until Q3.

Streveler will gain momentum on his passing game and we'll have A. Harris leading the way on the ground.

I would like to see less necessity for Streveler to run as much and risk injury. He'll need to run if necessary but I think that will be less needed this week.

We will need to be at our best to beat Montreal at their barn.  While not a spectacular team, they are pretty solid and will punish errant passes. Hopefully Streveler can avoid same, but as usual, much will depend on the running game and Muamba will be glued to Harris all game.  Unfortunately, Streveler will need to run.

I foresee a 31-17 final score. Blue Bombers win.

Harris will be on a mission.
Jefferson will be Jefferson.
Rose will have another pick.
Bring the blitz Hall on these dudes!
Streveler comes out slinging a bit catching Als D off guard. Mixed in nicely with the run of course.
Grant and Whitehead will have a great day in the return game.

Limit the turnovers and penalties I cannot see how we lose useless we beat ourselves.

A good looking plan and hopefully it turns out that way. Obviously not a "must win" game but I see this as a very pivotal game for us given the remainder of the schedule.

R. Hall does need to realize that Adams passed for 350 yards in his last game. He didn't get as much pressure from the Riders as he will from our front 7. We'll sack him more than once and have him scrambling for his life.

HOWEVER. We can't give his receivers 10 yard cushions and allow the Als to get any advantage of field position and / or TOP.

The team that wins the turnover battle also needs to win field position and TOP to dominate.

Bombers are on a roll even with the recent injuries.

Agree that we will have to be at our best to beat the Als...these aren't the Al's of the first of this season, they are very much improved, and hats off to Khari for that.

Muamba can be glued to Harris all he wants, as we'll use the run-option between Harris and Demski, mixed in with a WR jet, and Steveler can pull the ball in and run with it himself, which he will, and he will crush the D. What he did vs the Riders D was impressive. He was the hammer, and they were the nails!!!
