do or die

Need to start winning at this barn.....
Lankford takes opening kickoff....reverses field...
...bounces it to the short sideline....
...and tightropes his way free....to 104 yd TD.
 I may give him another chance...after all....
Coombs takes deflected pass past Heath for 40 yds.....
...sets up Argo FG.....7-3 Blue...
Bomber O still doing its thing in 1st quarters....
...which is nothing at all....
M. Jackson busts return on Medlock short punt....
...and does his own tippy toe...75 yds to a TD...by a shoelace..
Blue throwing horizontal passes to players standing still....again...
Yet another short sideliner on 2nd down....drawing some boos, already.
27 yds of offense and 1 first down in the 1st (sigh)
Moe Leggett picks off pass over the middle... to kill Argo drive...
Harris running hard....making the yards after contact...
Sears gets IC penalty.....more Harris running....sets up FG.
S.J. Green great catch over Alexander....sets up Argo FG...
Dressler slants through Argo zone for 40 yd gain....
Nichols hits a couple more passes.....Harris in from the 4...
17 -13 Bombers....this one starting to look like a grinder....
That Jackson fella takes Medlock punt all the way back for TD..
...but illegal block puts it at the Blue 30....
Ray has a corner pattern dropped....then Whitaker drops one...
...on the goal line with no Bomber within 15 yds of him.  Argo FG.
Jackson is at it AGAIN....busts another kick return....65 yds...
..only some terrific speed from Walker, prevents TD...
MOS trying to figure out what the hell is... with the kick coverage...
Bomber D hold again...Liram H. boots another short FG...
Blue go into hurry-up O.....Sears gets tic-tack IC call..
Medlock lines up for a 56 yd attempt....pounds it right down the pipe...
...and it had about 10 yds to spare....just awesome.
Ray completes some passes....another sticky catch from AC Green...
LH closes out the half with another FG for Argos
Ray may be 37....but still throws the nice, easy ball......
Westerman is having his most active game of year, so far....
...the penalties are getting pretty tiresome, though....
Long Argo drive eating up the clock....and gets them another FG.
Coombs having a productive game for the Double Blue....
25-20 Argos.  Bomber D is hanging in there.....need some offense....
Bombers keep taking ball at 35....
Our O throws that short out pass....like nobody's business....
Bombers start a long drive.....convert some 2nd downs.....
Face mask on Adams moves it to the 5....Harris punches it in on 2nd down..
Blue up 27-25....tide is turning....
Another 100+ yd night for Dressler....clutch player..
Argo D starting to wear down.....M. Ball slams helmet on ground for 15...
Nichols is then low bridged for another major....
Argos then get bad PI against Denmark.....but it is overturned on review....
Not sure I know what the officials are doing out there, tonight.....
Not sure they know either....
Medlock makes 27th field goal....in a row....to make it 30-25 Bombers...
Nevis stuffs Whitaker on short 2nd down play....
Ray has less time for 2nd and 3rd options....and is taking some hits...
This Johnson fella at DT gets big time push, right up the gut.....
More Bomber receivers getting involved in the offense....
...and Nichols is hitting them now...
Seems like Harris has broken 101 tackles, tonight......
Bombers now taking over this game...physically, at the LOS....
O gets off a long drive, eating up clock....Medlock makes it 33-25...
Players on the D...putting up their hands for noise...and getting plenty of it....
Ray completing passes under plenty of duress...down to the 20 yd line.....
3 attempts go incomplete!   Bomber ball!
Nichols throws bomb attempt on 2nd and 5....eyebrows go up all over the place...
Argos have it with 50 seconds left.....
Heath jumps A.J. Green and picks off his 2nd of the night.....GAME OVER..
This guy plays a different position but reminds me of Rod Hill....a ball magnet...
This D may be starting to get it together.....lots of good performances all round...
Alexander and Walker have been solid.  Roc was not picked on tonight....
D-line came on real strong, Loffler more active, tonight....
Jeffcoat didn't look out of place, either....
Knox got a workout...trying to deal with all the valve passes his way....
The O needs work.....especially getting out of the gate (still)
...but 27 first downs, O turnovers and 0 sacks....
Bombers needed the win much more....than I needed the gin...
...but we will both take it.
Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so."

......Great game to watch, except I guess for Karen and her missing million...Both teams coming off a short week but they played really well considering...Bad calls by the refs. all game on both sides but it didn't take that much away from a solid Bomber win.. :thup: We just have to keep er going....If anyone is thinking the argo's are going to be a slouch this year....think again :wink:

Good synopsis as always DoD.  

It was an entertaining game, but we were aided by some terrible work by the refs.  Regardless of how you feel about the call on the Martese Jackson return that was overturned, we've all seen those hand contacts to the head against the QB called so many times before, shocking they weren't this time around, but fortunate for us.

Loeffler and Westerman had their biggest games.  I'm a bit stunned they didn't try go after Carmichael more than they did given his performance in the first two games.  Alexander on the corner I think is coming along.  They did a pretty good job taking away SJ Green.  Still gave up a lot of pass yards, but kept them out of the endzone.  

Oline held up very well against the vaunted Argos Dline, 0 sacks credited to the Argos on the cfl.ca boxscore.  Harris with his best game of the season.  The offense made use of full group of receivers , though I think we need to start seeing something more from Washington sometime soon.

......Agree on Washington....he made one nice grab but dropped another...We have to have those catches from him....Plenty of receivers out there, so methinks he better start making his presence known a little more, or he might be looking over his shoulder pretty quick...Don't know why this club can't get going in the first quarter...Seems like nobody is ready and they go into some kind of funk...We have too many good receivers to shut down like that...Somebody has to light a fire early, failing that we get put behind the eight ball, and have to play catch-up on too many occasions

With press coverage on most bomber WRs - you better have great hands! Every reception counts, it seems!

IMO it's LaPo.  Think back to when he was head coach.  We always had difficulties getting our offense going and were almost always a lousy first quarter team, heck, often we were a bad first half team.  I think he like to poke a prod a bit to start the game to see what the defense may be scheming rather than coming out of the gate trying to dictate what he wants the offense to do.  I don't forsee a big shift anytime soon as O'Shea won't be calling offensive plays and I hardly expect him to take those duties away from LaPo.
