Okay -- who would you like us to sign?


I am sure KSB will be looking to get out of Regina first chance he gets, but he still has another year to go before he can bolt.

Jordan Williams and Bo Lokombo are both having great years.  Williams has more tackles, but Lokombo has 3 INTs and 4 sacks.

It would be hard to pick a Redblack, and his stats don't jump off the sheet, but I think Cleyon Laing has a good chance of coming out of the East.

I could see Jordan Williams but they usually give it to dynamic offensive player and Demski is a bright shining star, don't think they would give it to Cleyon as he has the reputation of being a dirty dog in the trenches. Bombers certainly won't sweep the awards but I expect them to pick up the majority of the hardware.  MOP, MODP are locks.

This thread would make a lot of sense if we are talking depth. Starters are fantastic but I have concerns about the folks behind them. I would love to get Petermann back or draft a blue chipper to learn the ropes for a few years.

Demski is a talented utilitarian who can do it all, from working out of the backfield to catching the deep ball and breaking or deking tackles in the medium plays.

Woli is a great role player who is a possession receiver and fantastic blocker. I disagree with folks who think he's under-utilized because he rarely gets chances but when he does he excels; rather, I think the cause-and-effect are linked. He's a fabulous 5th receiver and I think we are utilizing him very well for what he brings to the table. That said, a few extra targets a game wouldn't hurt. And, he's a heck of a personality.

Woli's touches are about right. I wouldn't want our field WR targeted more than a few times a game.

Woli is safe because of his passport and his work ethic, he's a great fit for the team and won't be replaced anytime soon.  I doubt Petey wants to come back to stand on the sidelines, they have to find young players that are content to wait for their turn, maybe O'Leary-Orange is that guy.  I wouldn't be surprised if James Tyrrell is also invited back to camp next season for another crack.

Petey is sitting on the Ottawa PR right now. Sitting on our sidelines would be a massive upgrade for him.

Massive, massive upgrade. He is in football hell right now and would probably jump at the chance to come back to an environment where your team is respected and your organization isn't a gong show.

Wolitarsky is fine. He's not the world's flashiest receiver but he fills a role. A classic ratio rule guy (although at the higher end of that category). There's only so many targets to go around and as long as they're healthy we're better off giving a few extra looks to Lawler, Bailey and Demski. Sometimes too many mouths to feed isn't better.

Woli is your classic 5th receiver. If we wanted to get more touches for him we probably could but with the trio you mentioned above we really don't need to do so. If a team somehow figures out how to shut down our big 3 it will leave Woli having a big day....and he's capable of that.

Demski is a major part of the success on offense. Wolitarsky has had a strong season in a depth role, even with quieter production than previous seasons.

I'm not sure what the depth is like at NAT WR but there's no cause for concern at this point, IMO.

With basically our entire team coming up for FA this year I don't see it as a priority this offseason either. Walters will have his work cut out for him. Everyone in the league is going to want a piece of our roster.

Yup, we will lose a few gems to higher offers or those wanting to relocate.  We did a great job for years keeping tje core and I hope it continues but I see a little change comming.  Good thing we draft and scout well.

In the next two years I can possibly see losing Bryant 35 and Hardrick 31 to retirement, hopefully they don't both decide to retire in the same year.  Those would be some big shoes to fill.

Scary to think about those two cornerstones not being here. So keep on playing. Smiley

They first want a Michael Jordan 3-peat! Wink Then they can hang them up. Hardrick has many years left if he wants to keep playing at only 31. Bryant has never missed a game as a Bomber. These guys could maybe play until 40 if they remain healthy.
