Bombers took this Bowl Game with force… well done.

Next game and I can’t believe I would say this but “go Stamps”

This is Sean McGuire's best game as a Bomber. One pass for 50yds... three rushes for 3 touch downs... a job well done. The rest of the Bombers did a pretty good job too. Just ignore that messy bit with the ejections and I think EVERYONE'LL be happy with this year's Banjo Bowl outcome. :smiley: :+1:

5 rushing TDs in the past 2 games....not too shabby! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Gotta give him top marks for efficiency and that short yardage call was highlight reel material (Buck Pierce FINALLY did something tricky). MORE of that please! :grin:

Also loved the deep strike to Demski on the short yardage play....more of that please!

Great. Luckily our coaches LOVE fan input. We'll have to put our requests in Buck's suggestion box. I think it's located next to his desk above the paper shredder.

Speaking of 'shredders', I think our defense did a great job taking the Riders apart today. Willie Jefferson's 100th CFL game was devastatingly disruptive as per usual:

Everyone gets a pat on the head.
