The Lions destroy SSK

The Lions destroy SSK

Yes, I know, I know. It was only an exhibition game and the starters were not in on every play. But even though it was an exhibition game I saw some brilliant passes and incredible catches. Jennings may well have his best year yet. And that 3rd stringer Ross. He looked darn good. The Lions appear to have taken care of their place kicking with Waters. And Long? Man can that guy punt. Almost 60 yard punts with no wind advantage? Phenomenal! Rainey will be a guy to reckon with on those punt returns. We have some excellent receivers. These guys were making catches that were unbelievable.

I can't wait to get to the home opener on June 24 when the Lions play Edmonton. Compared to the Lions of last year the team looks like a new team with a hunger I've not seen for awhile.

Yes, yes I know. It was just an exhibition game and they were only playing SSK but I'm willing to bet that the Lions are the real deal this year. A most satisfying game to watch even if it was just an exhibition game.

Easy to agree that BC looked impressive against probably the weakest team in west division. In two preseason games, defense seem better than expectations despite personnel losses such as Bighill, Brazzle and Philips. As expected, offense and special teams should be strong. Isn't Jennings in his option year and needs to do well to earn a new contract later? However offensive line might be weaker if more Canadians are used?

In May 2016, he signed a contract extension through the 2018 season.
