Bomber game day is up.
Givens and L"Darius will cause some initial problems, not much film. Expect TO starts soft zone and we see some early success, rapidly evaporating as Tresty turns the dial up. 

Wild is in, probably still fragile. Worst case is he quickly re-injures. If so, entirely on iron Mike!!
He's adamant he doesn't protect players, "good to go? Then go"....

I'd feed TO some "FB surprise" and try and keep the guys healthy, perhaps drag out a sleeper win but I'd sure avoid a slug-fest.

TO weather is good, partly cloudy, 19, although winds 13 km from the north will leave a downhill field for someone in the 4th. 

Toronto wins by TD unless the D runs Sir Ricky into the ground. 

Wilder is back, probably results in the final MLB embarassment of the year for NOS. 
Illegitimi non carborundum


......eeeeks....Wilder is back....I hope he's still feeling the after effects of that nic he just suffered or we will be embarrassed in the middle...Maybe Givens will cause them problems....Unknown quantity with lots of speed..It would be nice to think we have another threat in the lineup...I hope Wild and Dress hang together and aren't sent back to the infirmary...That would not bode well for the finish of the season...Play tough but play smart and leave it all out there is my motto

Would be nice if:

1. Wild & Dressler contribute greatly to a W - clinch 2nd in west - and can thus be rested accordingly until the IGF playoff game.

2. Wild & Dressler - FRAGILE CARGO - escape the game un-injured and can be played sparingly in games 17 & 18

Wouldn't be nice if:

1. Either/both Dressler & Wild leave the game temporarily (a precursor to permanently) and are sketchy for further season action.

Dressler gives the team a bit extra in the options dept. However, without legitimate deep-long threats like Adams, Nichols is reduced to a slightly taller version of Kevin Glenn, either heaving them long and hoping someone gets open or dinking 'n dunkin' like the 2nd coming of Ricky Ray for 1 yd to 8 yd gains. Something tells me Trestman will be able to cover the bombers mid to long range WRs like a blanket - and put some heavy pressure on our short passing game. Should mean Harris can spring for 50 to 80 running yds but you never know what mood our o-line guys will be and whether they can withstand the Argo's continued stunts!


Mulumba was the 2nd overall pick of the Bombers in 2013. He's never been on a CFL field - taking 4 years to wash completely thru the NFL camps (at age 27).

Not gonna get many more look-sees or extra cash for sitting like a lump on an NFL practice roster ($200,000 to $325,000) so he's at a crossroads.

Evidently the bombers (in dire need of Canadian talent on their d-line or linebacking crew) have offered Andy a contract.

I always wondered what was going on. New Bomber regime is pretty tight-lipped so new information has come out from Mulumba's agent. The agent wants a bigger contract offer - or an agreement to ship/trade Andy's rights to another CFL team.

Right now - the parties are at a Mexican stand-off.

Frankly, given the bombers lack of Canadian depth at key positions what would be wrong signing Andy M. for the final 3 games of the year - giving him a small signing bonus and get him ready for playoffs? Of course, you'd have to offer a guy more than a 3 game contract. So why not offer him a 2nd year (2018) at $125,000 to $140,000 w/ a signing bonus ($25k or somesuch). If the guy can't play anymore - if his practice habits are lazy or indifferent - if he's become an ex-NFL diva - CUT HIM. You're only out a couple game cheques plus a signing bonus - the signing bonus is really the only thing at risk - and for the potential this guy brings might be well worth the investment.

So again I ask. Why the stand-off?
Good stuff Lyle. You were all over it long before I came along.

Still agree with your logic.

Fast becoming never going to happen. Stupid Joe Mack!
