Brutal in that department! We had a whole year to find a kicker and wow! I know Grant is injured,  but God cone on. NELSON not a returner.

Hopefully Grant back soon, I don't see us bringing in anyone.  Nelson does ok.  Agree on kicker, if one is available.

I hope the Bombers didn't lose Medlock's phone number. You might want to give him a call. Kicking was a big difference in the game. The Argos kicker was perfect, the Bombers kicker misses both of his kicks.

Have to agree, We need to do better on returns.

Did Crapigna shank that one really bad or was it the hold?  TSN is not great with replays..

Agreed!
Add Nevis back

Just let the kid kick. Crapigna is terrible and we might as well let the rookie miss 30 yard field goals. At least he might get better.

Our kicking game stunk right from the opening K/O. Short K/O, short punts and 2 missed FG's. Cover teams not great either.

That said I wish people would quit calling to have Medlock re-signed. Players move on and we have to move forward. Several teams having kicking problems and nobody has signed Medlock. That's a reasonable feeling that he's retired. Ratio and SMS are other issues.

Like Andy Dalton playing QB for your Bears - you know he stinks and isn't going to get better...

Yeah people begging for Medlock to come back is so annoying.  Makes much more sense to live in the present tense.

Missing 3s and bad coverage bothered me the most.

Maybe Liram cents cut down south and we can bring him back. Something has to happen with ST. Just a large stink bomb.

Never been a fan of Nelson. Just doesn't have that explosives speed. Can't cheap on the kicking game. We know that from the past. Medlock won us a lot of games.

Holds were great.  Crapigna had horrible form on the 1st kick, like he was going to fall down.  He did the same form the next 2 and missed badly, shanked exactly the same way.

Just let the kid kick. Crapigna is terrible and we might as well let the rookie miss 30 yard field goals. At least he might get better.

Yes, if Leggs can even remotely kick FG, drop Crapigna and have Leggs do it all until we find a good FA K.  Use the spot to get another NAT receiver dressed.

Our kicking game stunk right from the opening K/O. Short K/O, short punts and 2 missed FG's. Cover teams not great either.

Disagree.  His KOs getting longer, I watched carefully tonight.  Most to the 10.  Punts were once again good (mostly) and only one rouge mistake.

If Leggs can make FGs even slightly better than Crapigna, have him do it all.

Like it or not, no one should discount Medlock suddenly showing up in Winnipeg...
