Two championships in a row?  This is the best Blue Bomber teams in years.   Even without Mike Jones, they are as ready and healthy as a team can be going into this game.  Talent, focus and execution will be crucial and the Bombers should have it should prevail.

Grey Cup Hits

Quick hits from Thursday here in Hamilton at the 108th Grey Cup as the Blue Bombers continued preparations for Sunday's championship against the Tiger-Cats...

1. INJURY REPORT: The Bombers held a closed-to-the-media practice at McMaster University on Thursday and then had 24 players and coaches available for the Grey Cup Media Day.

Of note, both RB Andrew Harris (knee) and DB Mike Jones (knee) were non-participants. Harris was part of the media day, FYI, and left no indication he would not play on Sunday.

2. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ALL WORK...:
No introduction needed. Watch this:

And there's more here.

Huge loss for the Ti-Cats. Ratio breaker and a key piece of that front seven.

I don't follow them closely enough to recognize who they swapped out for the loss of a Canadian spot. Could someone with better knowledge point that out. It appears they are replacing him with an American...thanks

Basically a first year practice roster player. Lee Autry III draws in. Has dressed for four games and started two. The Ticats allowed 6.2 yards per carry when Laurent was injured and 3.8 yards per carry when he was healthy.

They moved Adeleke, their starting Canadian safety, over to half back and are starting Katsantonis at safety, Hamilton's fourth round selection from 2020. Has played in 14 games this year although I think mostly in a special teams role.

Thanks again....So they are potentially weaker at DT, and safety. Assuming that Adeleke is at least on par with the American he is replacing at half.

3 changes forced and a relatively green safety playing in the biggest game of the year, shows just how important CDN depth is.

The Bombers are the superior team, but, it is only 1 game, the Bombers need to play like they can and have shown all year, except for the bad weather game in the WF. Limit the turn overs, receivers protect the ball as Hamilton defenders will be trying to pull it out, successfully run the ball with no Ted Laurent and we win the game.

Losing Laurent and Lawrence is going to hurt the Ti-Cats. That's another advantage for the Bombers.
