Couple of good points here.

Walker big hit on first D play.....

This guy threw out some hard licks in BC.  He's got a ways to go in his coverage ability but he's going to leave a lot of receivers definitely feeling bruised after playing us.  Physical indeed.

Is there some reason we play 6 yds off of receivers in the RED ZONE???

Redzone, our zone, their zone, everywhere a zone zone.  We put the Als in 2nd and 3 or four and presnap our DBs are already backpedaling to give up a 10 yard cushion on pretty much every play.  Is it a wonder why offenses are racking up big yardage against us?  It's infuriating.  Can we not trust them to go to man cover at least some of the time?

Quote
Nichols misses on consecutive passes.....some boos ensue...

They spend most of the game throwing short underneath routes, how does he so throw so many into receivers feet?  He came up big in the last couple of minutes, had a beauty deep ball on the sideline.  Still hasn't put up a consistent 60 minutes.  He took a lot of hits, that PI call in the third Q that was challenged was soft, and when he was pressured most of the game it seemed like he froze and took the hit or sack.  It made getting out of the pocket for that big scamper at the end to set up first and goal for the win that much more impressive though.

Big whiff by Loeffler on that play and a few others this game.  He had been playing better of late, but for the most part this year his impact has been negligible and too many times he's made weak tackle attempts or whiffed by taking a poor angle.

Quote
Harris catching more passes, Lankford a couple...

Harris the epitome of effort all game long.  Lankford was really good filling in for Dressler in the second half.

Quote
Rutley busts a run outside....Logan busts the exact same play...

When our DBs are already running backwards presnap, we're giving up a lot of room that makes it easier for good backs to get into space to make tacklers miss.  Then we don't tackle well when we finally get to them.

Quote
Montreal in prevent D, anticipating victory.....

So much for Thorpe's genius.  Took it way to easy way too soon.

Brilliant play that leaves you wondering the obvious question - why has no one else done that before.  Everyone's always trying to get it to the sidelines.  Again O'Shea showing off some brilliant thinking on special teams.

Most impressive was that everyone I'm sure had to have known it was Harris time in that territory and time and he still drove it in.  Even if you are one of the ones posting all over social media with the one pic and your opinion he was down just shy of the goal line, Harris still broke a couple of tackles and drove it with impressively with everyone wearing rouge, bleu, and blanc knowing he was getting the ball and still struggle to stop him.  Just a determined effort.

Just too much lack of speed by Big Blue DBs! Bombers simply will NOT burn you with their speed on offense or defense!
