Blue Bombers and Fans


« on: November 19, 2022, 05:54:56 AM »

Game of the Year.  Given the Grey Cup record between the Bombers and Argos over the past several years, the Bombers are due for a Grey Cup win.  All important hands are on deck including the 2022 CFL MOP - our Zach Collaros.  Big questions - who is the better team - who has the most desire to win - who will execute best in the biggest game of the year?

The 48-Primer is here....

We left late yesterday from Calgary and are in Moosejaw now. Today is a SPA day and Casino day and first thing after breakfast tomorrow my gang of 2 head to the stadium (wives staying back in the hotel and getting another day at the SPA). We have full winter gear on and ready for whatever happens. Our hosts will pick us up at their offices tomorrow morning - take us for a lunch and then we all head to the game. I should have asked where we are seating but I know it is on the home side (they are long time season ticket holders). So the mix is 2 Bomber Fans and 6 Rider Fans - all long time friends and business associates.

We were going to head back to Calgary post game but given the time frames involved we decided to overnight back in Moosejaw and then head back to Calgary on Monday morning early.

Been watching the Saturday grey cup, and I must say, Lapo definitely adds another dimension to the TSN coverage. His breakdown and explanation of basic run plays with the Regina women?s team walking through it then showing Argo and bomber highlights of them executing the same run plays brings a much needed and appreciated element to the broadcast.

 It?s good to see the various players from the past make guest appearances, but these educational segments are exactly what TSN and the CFL should be running to educate the fan base. Well done Lapo, your explanations are fantastic I just don?t get why your teams couldn?t win for you as he definitely knows his Playbook

Ugh...not First-Down Foxcroft?!  What happened to Proulx?  He always scores better than Foxcroft.  Did they think it was unfair Proulx gets it every single year?  Ugh.  Well, it cold be worse, it cold be Valesi or (now defunct) Murphy.

I'm predicting a big air game.  We'll still run, and run creatively, but it'll be harder than the WDF.  Muamba is no slouch.  Some hoggie will be tasked with bulldozing him, or it'll look like the '19 WDF where Solly shutdown our run game.  No McManis, that hurts them.  Their DL doesn't scare me.  But Zach needs 100% protection.  One sack or tackle and he's done.

Is this the first game this entire year where there was no depth chart change for us??  I can't recall one: so many injuries and tweaks.

Quite surprised Houston didn't get on.  Rough on him.  Find a way to get that kid a ring?  MBT is going to pick on Lawrence.  Maybe BA can help out strong side.

We'll need to limit TOR run game or life will be very hard.  I don't think TOR will lean too heavily on the run, but if it works they'll use it to open up the pass.  TOR will NOT try to be a run-mostly team (unless they are up in the 4th).

E gad, really, he scores higher, in what aspects?? I don?t have a preference to any ref, umpire etc, they all do a decent enough job and all take turns at whiffing on calls, it?s a tough job. Why the nickname first down foxCroft??

Just saw on TSN that the Houston INT from that diving catch was the #1 play of the year.  And we're benching the guy for the GC!  Sheesh

It?s not like he made the interception, had the receiver caught the ball like any receiver should, that plays a TD, and maybe that?s why he?s on the sideline  as that play was more fluke than anything

Will be tough to win vs the Argos but I do expect both teams will try to run the ball much more often given the cold conditions and Collaros ankle. The Argos are a very good running team with Harris and Oulette combo. The Bombers will lose the game if they can't stop the run.
