pretty impresive

And the previous week, Warner for lineman of the week. GO Blue....

and Brown for defensive player of the week

....we'll just keep on.. keepin' on ...till there is no doubt this team is for real...respect definitely earned in the first few games of 06...what a boost for Glenn...and the D...go BigBlue :thup:

And what about Taman! Oh ya he is still there! One good game does not get respect. String some wins together and then maybe some respect! :lol:

....well we have already had a little more success than you were predicting red.......just keep in mind ...the black-bird is still on your menu... :lol: :lol:

Not a problem Pappa I still believe I will not be the one eating crow. I do believe I stated your team did improve some what but will the consistancey be there yet. We will have to see on that issue. And it sure does help with a Toronto team with out their number one QB. But I believe this game will be different then the first one against the Argo's. There will be no suprises and this time they will not take your defense lightly.

...and your telling me ....Wynn is going to burn us ...i think if they had Damon back...they would definitely be better...we'll just have to go out and prove we have the talent to beat their 'd' ...and we should have another 2 pts. :rockin:

I am sure Pinball hopes your team thinks that way watch for the pants to drop and get a spanking! :lol:

I think Taman did a real good job putting this club together…No problems here. I kinda hope the rest of the pundits in the league keep on putting down the Bombers…Karma is alive and well.

Who is putting the bombers down I think Taman does that just fine. That's who will he add to neg list this year a one legged kicker!

I didn't realise Taman was interested in adding Zack "You're A Strange Animal" Gowan to the Bombers' neg list. :lol:

As they [WIN.] should get more respect. :thup:

The Toronto Vs. Win. game should be a great one. :thup:

I will be there , but I dought that many people will be.

Saturday , they close down most of YONGE ST. for a street fest and the MOLSON INDY , is in town. Many roads to the game will be closed.

WIN. games are traditional our lowest draw. :cry:

Lets hope the T.V. ratings are great. :thup:

But who cares. WIN. will not see the same ARGO team as in their first game. This is a rematch and the ARGOS are not Edmonton. It is hard to beat the same team 2 times in a row.

GOOD LUCK to both teams. :thup:

Now that's what i am talking bout. Bombers doing what is best play good football.

yup, bombers are earning respect :thup:

now if we could only do something about those fans :twisted:

same goes for your Stamps.....the Riders just may a lay a whuppin on em.....

Yawn ok!

The Bombers had a great game against the Esks, but when they win more consistently and beat some of the better teams like Montreal, BC, Sask and Toronto(with Allen at QB), then they might earn the respect they are seeking.

The riders :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

well I dont think it is so much respect as it is just acknowledgement of the incredible job that Berry and Marshall have done in the first 3 games of the season.....to take 2 of 3 from Montreal, Toronto and Edmonton (regardless of how healthy they are) is enough for me...
