Hopefully Jeffcoat is back too.

On paper he's eligible to start practicing this week. I'm not so sure they won't wait the extra game to save the SMS and give him that extra time to get back to game speed. The SMS hit might be worth saving to get that benefit.

There are several players on the 6 game IR that have been there longer than 6 games. Whether any have actually participated in practice yet I don't know. Some may be ready, close to ready or finished for the season.

I'd expect Demski to start this week. Whitehead and possibly Speller added as the # 6 OL pushing Eli to 1 game IR? A. Harris will be back. Maston may be healthy but wouldn't be an automatic add although he could be the 46th man.

Watching the day before game roster changes will be interesting this week with so many possible changes.

Montreal is a good team and can't be underestimated. I think that it will be close probably decided by a FG. But Andrew Harris is back and he'll be a man on a mission leading to a Bomber win.

I think Montreal will be tough also .  Harris has to have a good game.

Yes we are all waiting with baited breath for Jeffcoat to return to his 2018 form!   We need to pressure VA big time in Montreal!

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.

I like. I think we flex our muscle in this game and crush the Als.

Montreal has a pretty decent D. Strv17 will have to protect the ball, and we mite have to have a little extra help with MR. Bowman. At 37 this guy is still a very good player that can bring the heat. A nice clean game should be enough to take home a road victory.

Mathews giving them all of our playbook as we speak.....lol.....We should beat this club.....IF we don't.....certainly won't look good heading into the final stretch....

If Nichols was playing I might be a tiny bit concerned about Matthews giving a heads up, but Matthews won't know much about the Strev run O.

If this game was in WPG I wouldn't even break a sweat about this game, however, the Montreal strip clubs make it tough to win over there.

They haven't lost there since 2015 and under this regime, they're 4-1 in Montreal.

I think it's safe to say this is the best team the Als. have fielded since 2015, Calvillo retired in 2014.

This is by far the best Als team in a long time, even possibly better than the end of the Calvillo years.  Bombers need to pick up where they left off in the BB and put this one down early.

That's probably the case. But this Bombers team is pretty good, too. My point, though, was I don't think the night life in Montreal will afflict the road team this weekend; this regime seems to keep its soldiers in check. If the Bombers play their game and do it well, I expect a win.

Sidenote: the Bombers took both road games in Montreal in 2013, too. Those were their only road wins that season.

And the only home game we won that year was the Banjo Bowl. That means Montreal fans saw us win in person more than Winnipeg fans.

2013 was indeed a season to forget. Banjo Bowl aside, anyway.

Luckily for us Matthews wasn't paying much attention at practice or team meetings...
