Re: Burnett and Gaitor released

The timing is strange but this gives a chance for some practice roster players to show what they can do. Gaitor has been a huge liability all season. His blown coverages and tendency to watch the quarterback while receivers slipped in behind him cost the team several games, and he kept making the sa...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Matt Nichols credits B.C.'s defensive game plan for shutting down the Winnipeg offence. “(The Lions defence) did some really good things,” said Nichols. “There were a few throws and reads I missed, we took some penalties… it was the culmination of a lot of things. There were a few things we did well...

Might be the time for me to have a little chat with Buono. Worked in 2011 :wink:

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

I see they have unleashed their 2018 season ticket campaign. Big incentive is get a bonus ticket for an extra game if you purchase by Nov. 3. Have a feeling it's not going to create a mad rush. Of course the same old pricing structure including keeping those sections between the 20-30 yard lines as...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

LU offers thoughts on the game, the season and Wally's plan to give playing time to practice roster players in the final weeks. Looking ahead: if there’s any upside associated with being on the outside of the playoffs is that the Lions will eventually came in to the notion that there’s no harm in ac...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Both teams blitzed a lot and both had 2 sacks, but the similarities end there. The Bombers were credited with 12 QB pressures; the Lions with 1 (by Menard). Nichols dumped down and got the ball off, even though he threw for less than 200 yards. Jennings held on and tried to hit longer-developing pla...

Re: Leos vs Bombers, GDT

Wally is a legend, and was a major reason why this team turned things around after the disaster that was the late 90's. His teams were always contenders, and our long playoff streak is a testament to his abilities as a coach. He's also shown a knack for releasing players just before their best befo...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Ed Willes sums up the game and the season, with quotes from Wally and several players: “It was a lack of execution,” Jennings said when asked to identify the problem. “The defence came to play,” said Burnham, who caught two late touchdown passes. “Offensively, we didn’t want it enough. We didn’t get...

Re: Bombers 26 - Lions 20, Post-Game Stats and Comments

The Lions have lost 7 of their last 8 games and are on the brink of elimination. One more loss or one more win by both Edmonton and Saskatchewan will eliminate them from the playoffs for the first time in the David Braley era. It has been a good run but the wheels have fallen off. When teams are str...

Re: Leos vs Bombers, GDT

Sorry but Jennings sucks. Offense got severely outplayed in this one. No he doesn't. His O coordinator does. Jo es has no idea how to handle a young QB coming off an injury. Completely stunned. There is blame on both sides. Jennings’ confidence is fragile and he is having trouble seeing the field. ...

Re: Leos vs Bombers, GDT

if only Jennings hadn’t thrown the Pick-6 or the deep INT into double coverage. That cost the Lions 10 points. Jennings came into the year acknowledging that he had to cut down on his interceptions. He has regressed badly.

Re: Leos vs Bombers, GDT

Full credit to the B.C. defence for playing hard today. They’ve held the Bomber offence to 3 FGs. Unfortunately, offence and special teams didn’t show up this week.

I can see why the Lions haven’t tried onside kicks before. That was awful.

Please pull Jennings now. That’s 10 points off interceptions.
