I think we escaped this weeks game without losing anyone else to injury. Banged and bruised but able to play.

OTOH, I'm not so sure Calgary might not be missing some players this week. All their RB's have really been banged up.

Oliveria is healthy, angry and ready to run over and through players. Whether Streveler starts or sees a more limited role, he probably will see the field in some fashion to pound their defence. It's a short week for a road game for the Stamps.

Calgary hasn't looked that good against the run, so we need to continue what we did this week. Perhaps not quite to that extent. A good run game helps win LOS, TOP and field position.

This game is within reach of winning. Home crowd may be the difference needed.

Didn't we lose Bonds, or did he end up coming back?  Brady & Strev were also pretty banged up.

We win if we don't beat ourselves.

As seen lastnight, Stamps are a good team. We'll have to be able to move the ball thru the air sometimes.

Bond went off after a tackle but it appeared it might have just been a stinger. I could be wrong, but I didn't think it was serious at the time.

Yes, many others were going to need some serious ice after that game.  My initial impression was that a few will get a day of light practice or limited during the week. Neither Brady or Streveler need multiple days of practice with loads of reps.

Calgary is a very physical team, they shut the door on the Bomber running game just two games ago and did not allow Zach or Strev. enough time to pass. Can't duplicate the running attack used against Ottawa if Zach is starting, which he probably is.  So the Bombers will be forced to beat the Stamps with a well rounded game, combined running and passing effectively, something they have not been able to accomplish to this point in the season. My hopes are not high they come out on top unless the D can shut Maier down completely and Castillo can out kick Paredes.

Huh?

Did you not see the fourth Qtr?
The Bombers, strvlor killed. Calgary. In Calgary.

I go with the same type game plan.  Strev creates a huge problem running, and his passing was better than Collaros. All Collaros accomplished was  dump off short passes.  He missed deep throws.  Strev hit the same short passes. But he also hit a couple mid range, plus he can get the 1st downs running.  It's like. Strev takes command and makes it happen.  Collaros for the last year has been unable to tolerate the pass rush, and easily settles for the dump off almost exclusively. Not a good last two years for Collaros.

I go with Strev.  He show passion, and  Collaros shows indifference. The old saying, "light a fire under his ***" seems to apply.

Two weeks ago Oliveria was not healthy. It's a TBD as to who starts at QB. We know Streveler can run but can he be more effective as a passer if he takes most reps at QB?

Strev might have an easier week in practice after being banged up. Collaros might take the # 1 reps or he could see another week of DNP.

What will the 1st daily IR report show? Anybodies guess at this point.

Calgary's a better football club than Ottawa, so we are really going to have our hands full. No matter who starts at Qb, we have to start playing smarter football and quit taking the dumb dumb penalties. We need to play error free football to make this a close game. We take undisciplined penalties and turn the ball over, Calgary will capitalize

We lost to CGY by 3 points on the road, in overtime, after losing our starting QB that the week of practice and gameplan were set for.  Three points.  They are coming here, after giving up a huge lead to MTL and losing.  They have one more win than us.  If we win that OT, they are 1-3 and we are 2-3.

We handily beat OTT here, and we will soundly beat CGY.  Especially is Streveler is starting with a full week of #1 reps.

why not go really back in time and have streveller, brady, and augustine in at the same time?

since the ground game works, go all out.

makes sense, if defences tend to have lighter quicker players suited to stopping a mostly passing attack.... run it.

nothing more fun than watching your team pound it down the field with an unstoppable ground game.

any other old timers here?  " riggins left, riggins right, riggins up the middle."

Also...... I want to say,  thanks, being a newcomer, you people are very nice.

Yah why not, if they're going that way why not get Augustine more involved, I think he only received one touch all last game.  Stamps had a lot of trouble containing Walter Fletcher when he got outside, they are vulnerable to speed around the edges.

I didn't notice if Bonds came back, but it looked bad (enough to stay on the sidelines that game) to me.  I am doing a rewatch of H2 though, and will report back if Bonds came back.  I was curious how we'd rejig the DBs after Bonds left, I couldn't figure it out at the game (both kids were keeping me busy).

Brady's probably fine.  Strev likely has some hip problem, but doubt he'll care.  It was that hit he took that did it, then he kept aggravating it all night.

Very well said. Montreal turned the tables on Calgary in the second half when they made adjustments and upped their intensity. We're at home which will help and we'll need the crowd to be into it and loud. We're going to need a good performance from offense, defense, and special teams. I think our D can give Maier a tough time and Castillo is definitely on his game. I'm looking forward to seeing how well we prepare for this one. Buck, Jordan, and Miller need to craft a beauty.
Go Bombers!

I don't know if we we re there yet to beat Calgary, we need to stop shooting ourselves in the foot with dumb penalties and if we do we re at home and the crowd will really help to hopefully pull off another win
