  1. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    I thought Jefferson already resigned?
  2. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    Fairly sure he signed an extension during the season.
  3. Darian Durant signs with Bombers

    I'll discuss how full of holes this is. How there's no way you'd be able to back up any of the claims you're making. As for Durant trying to push for a starters spot (to be fair thats not a bad thing...but regardless) I spoke to Matt and just told him that I’m just coming in to support you 100 percent. You’re the guy. You helped build what is Winnipeg Blue Bomber football in its present day,” said Durant. seems like he is really here to shake things up! Lol
  4. Darian Durant signs with Bombers

    **** Durant. Hate this move.
  5. Bomber Moves 2018

    Did no one watch the last few games of the year? Neuf played just fine. His health I can understand being in question. But his ability to play guard well has been established as far as I'm concerned.
  6. Glenn to Edm

    What happens to Vernon Adams in SSK? He can't be that happy about the situation over there either. And I'd imagine Williams would be a cheaper option at 3rd string than Adams.
  7. Top 10 Greatest Bomber Moments of All Time

    What were his posts about?
  8. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    Cause he never has. If Sutton has been able to play, he usually starts over him.
  9. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    Apparently Durant has been released.
  10. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    Yeah very low mileage. I was always surprised when he would resign with MTL as he has always looked like a solid back. Thought he would have tried to get a starting spot somewhere, earlier in his career.
  11. Top 10 Greatest Bomber Moments of All Time

    I'd switch out Deons INT with the come back against MTL. Why? 1st, that team wasn't good. And didn't end up doing anything after that. It's a nice story but did little to propel the team on to anything, and actually that game led to a few years of darkness as Lapo was canned shortly after. 2nd, the MTL come back was special, as it was against a team with a stingy D (within recent history anyway) with a QB who has been hated by bomber fans for years, during a season that was seemingly balancing between decent to garbage. It drastically changed the way the media (both local and nation wide) as well as fans talked about that team and it was the Home town hero with the final score to steal it. Deons play was great, but does not belong on this list. As for Milts 4/4 game. I honestly just can't understand what those DB's were thinking..."oh here comes one of the greatest (soon to be Greatest) rec in CFL history, let's just let him go". It wasn't that he even had to make great plays. He was WIDE open on every catch. I can still remember yelling MILT!!!! just as Kevin glenn released the ball to him on each pass, even the fans knew where Glenn was going! It was just too easy!!!! You wouldn't believe it if it was in a movie. I can't see anyone ever doing anything like that again. Especially someone as established as #85 was at the time.
  12. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    You're thinking Sutton. I don't think Rutley has ever missed significant time due to injury, and he's the back up to Sutton. He is getting up there in age though.
  13. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    Roberts, Reid, Cornish, Sutton, Messam, Marshall (though he's not in the same category as the others). Quality RB's/running game, have little to nothing to do with the lack of success Glen has had in playoff games.
  14. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    How you know?
  15. Blue Bomber Free Agent List

    I'd be blown away if Legget didn't resign. He's still in WPG and is always talking about how much he likes it here. Randle I think they will need to spend a bit on. And he is worth it. Heath I can see being the odd man out. Forget about the freelancing etc etc. It's just the nature of the beast. You can't spend all the money on one piece, same as Bond. Both players will get offers, but they likely both want more $$ and probably deserve it. Saying that, replacing 1 of 5(6 including SAM) is not in a rebuilding of the secondary. And will be the norm moving forward. You just won't see WR groups, DB groups, Oline groups etc etc remain intact every year. There will always be turn over.
  16. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    I've never been a fan of Durant. And I never will be. Thought he was overrated in his prime and he seems to be overrated now. I'd take Glenn over him as a backup, though I hope the bombers can do better than both.
  17. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    God I hope the Bombers don't sign Durant. He should probably just hang em up at this point. Please don't sign here!!!!!
  18. Rule Changes For 2018

    We've been over how that wouldn't work. Only the coaches/players know who the intended rec. is for that specific play. And illegal contact can change it. So I'd just rather do away with the illegal contact challenging all together than put in another rule that the refs/coaches can get wrong or abuse.
  19. When do we fire Richie Hall?

    I disagree. They would have looked much better. Hurl missed a lot of tackles, not due to scheme or being in the wrong position. He was right there, and the runners 8 out of 10 times would make him miss.
  20. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    The only thing they have is the coach of the team literally told the press that he would be the greatest to ever play up here. Which is obviously bullshit. But they could use that to pump up the price. "You think i'll be the best, prove it" type of deal.
  21. Blue Bomber Free Agent List

    I'm going to assume he took a cut to come back. And I hope he did, otherwise I think they made a mistake. Decent player when he's on the field. I really like the fact he wanted to come back and try to see it through.
  22. Bomber Moves 2018

    could be difficult to have that many in TC, just due to the number of reps. MLB need to be the "qb of the D" as it's always put. So I'd imagine for a Coach to be comfortable with making a Rookie the starter, they'd have to have a good sample size.
  23. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    Ray has a relationship with Maas. It's not like they've never worked together.
  24. When do we fire Richie Hall?

    Yup, and this is where it gets confusing. Cause those things aren't really scheme related...kinda. I mean if the DB's are constantly missing assignments, they should maybe look at making changes to those assignments. However, had they done their job and not missed the assignments, maybe they could have been a lock down D. So this is where it's hard to tell if it's the players or the scheme. Likely a little of both. Maybe they made the changes, maybe they didn't. No one outside of the locker rooms knows. But the missed assignments happened all year without fail . And missed tackles are just bad execution for the most part.
  25. Around The League: 2018 Offseason

    How many do they have under contract?
