Could be a gooder. Lots to like about both clubs. Edmonton operating at the perimeter of their amazing depth. Bombers fairly healthy other than Dressler missing 3rd straight game.
Probably comes down to Medlock putting his leg on the line deep into the 4th quarter.
Looks like Cuthbert & Suitor being read in for the game broadcast. This pair should also do the BC/Calgary game tomorrow.Let Trumper Black handle the two eastern rubbish games.
Suitor also revealed plans to measure sound levels at IGF and Mosaic (Regina) stadiums - in order to reveal loudest stadium & loudest fans (don't know why he's drawing a distinction between the two).
Reilly knows how soft the bombers are in the middle - slow middle-linebacking with lack of power, too. Should enable him to torment the bombers with tons of crossing routes converting to the odd fly route. Reilly also superior running the ball vs. sluggish hobos like Kyle Knox and Sam Hurl for key first downs. Esks have been trying to reduce Reilly's exposure to unnecessary massive hits - ie. the kind of hit a monster like Poo Johnson can unleash on unsuspecting players!
Bombers prolly have to play a near-perfect game; being 1 for 7 in the red zone just won’t cut it vs. a total pro like Reilly.
I’d say they’d have to be at least 3 for 7 in the red-zone; that’s 3 TDs plus 3 or 4 FGs - would give them minimum 31 pts; probably eking out a win!
This should be a good, er gooder one as Lyle mentions. I'll say the Eskies will lose for the first time. The Bombers have it going lately, really like the way Nichols and that offence is coming around.
