First Term Report Card for the Lions, after 6 Games.

Do we really want to do this? Gawd. Might as well. It is our team, going back decades. GM Ed Hervey. Fail. The cupboard is virtually empty of young, new, quality Internationals. We had no 1st round pick this year. He has gone All-In with Mike Reilly, and we do not even give him good pass protection....

Re: 2019 CFL Season

Good for Khari. Happy for him. He is showing more leadership, skill with Xs and Os and coaching ability, than we saw here. He seems to be helping Vernon Adams a lot. Good for Mark Washington. Happy for him also. Good guy. Seems to be working well with Steinauer, who has his own background as a succe...

Re: Introduce yourselves

Hello, i am a long time fan of the lions and grew up in New Westminster. Played football starting in grade 7 for the s.burnaby huskies (12-13 years old?), played all through high school (we were bad, but i loved the contact), and then one year for the surrey rams. My mom and dad were big fans. When...

Re: Riders 38 - Lions 25 -- Post Game Comments

Knevel. Perhaps it is time for Knevel to get his opportunity. This fan thinks the deeper problem is with the overall weakness of the pass protection scheme. Lots of support on this site for putting Knevel in at right tackle. No objection from this fan. Norman. He might get his chance to play tackle,...

Re: Riders 38 - Lions 25 -- Post Game Comments

We will see what the Lions do with the O Line. More Boyko? More Foucault? Knevel gets an opportunity? Go with an International, Norman, who has played right tackle in college? It has been musical chairs. Nationals Steward, Foucault, and Knevel and International Norman have backgrounds from college ...

Re: Riders 38 - Lions 25 -- Post Game Comments

I think Figueroa, Steward, Chungh, and possibly Roy are plenty good enough to play. I think that is obvious. Right tackle? Boyko has had his issues, as a new player to the CFL. Foucault just might not be talented enough. Footwork. Hand skills, etc. Time to go with an INT? Maybe. All the shuffling? ...

Re: Riders 38 - Lions 25 -- Post Game Comments

First off penalties not called on the Riders didn't win them the game. But the litany of non-calls was brutal including these: > Marshall on Carter in the first half and in the 4th Q. Noted by TSN callers. > 4th Q on a long Fajardo run was a major holding on Willis - how the f..k did that get misse...
