I was at the last game in winnipeg and had the pleasure to watch the als take out the bombers. IT was close but in typical bombers fashion they dont win the close games.
I feel the Als are clearly superior from the BOMBERS who in reality at this point in the season are probably around middle of the pack in the CFL.
I feel the Als are a more experienced and battle tested team, as you can see the bombers have a lot of holes on their team including really bad O line play. Punter is possibly one of the worst in CFl history. Their returned JAVON johnson is terrible and really slow.
They were playing JADE ETIENNE, Hargreaves and Cory watson at receiver--- Bombers should play better as they looked really bad last week so i expect them to play better this week. The CFL is a bounce back league, players respond after bad games-
I feel that the Bombers will play to NOT LOSE while I hope the Als will play to win the match. Bombers playbook is known, we already know that run on first and short 6 yard passes to a receiver who has to break a tackle to get the first down. One or 2 deep shots to Carr. One really deep ball to Edwards.
Tim Burke does know AC from his days, but as long as AC does not pull a Burris and get rattled and play like his pants are on fire THE ALS WILL SCORE ON THIS OVERRATED DEFENSE-
The Bomber D is aggressive, there is a few huge plays to be made vs Suber who is aggressive and with Whitaker out of the backfield vs a linebacker. Whitaker could score an easy td vs the bombers linebackers.
I think the Als can win this game they are better team, peg is on the decline, peg is overrated, they are at home, but i feel that trestman can outcoach the hell out of lapolice--
ANYONE have any thoughts on the game? THE only concern to me is that winnipeg has looked really bad of late so they could have an abberation where they could look better on saturday and overachieve? That seems to be happening a lot where teams who are overmatched and outplayed are winning the games. I think as long as the als are not too over confident and take them lightly they should win. Its always hard to win on the road in the CFL, especially this late in the year because teams are tired now, travel takes its toll. teams play good at home late in the season. The als look like they can win this game but it never seems as easy as it looks.
