Thought I would get the hype started for what will certainly be the biggest game of the year to this point for both Winnipeg and Saskatchewan so far. Finally the Bombers are once again division rivals with Saskatchewan (as it should be) and for the first time in years we seem to have a team that can offer a very real challenge to our rivals from the prairies (how we beat them last year is still a mystery to me).
Honestly, I don't feel the Bombers match up as well against the Riders as they do against most other teams. The Riders, like Edmonton, have a front four that can get pressure on every play without needing to blitz very often and our O-line is certainly not the strength of our team. Edmonton destroyed us by getting near instant pressure with 3 or 4 and dropping 8 or 9 into coverage. Our O-line is healthy again and our coaching staff should be more prepared to deal with this hopefully. Should be a great game either way. Durant better bring his ear plugs! :twisted:
Let the trash talk/hype commence.
