According to legend what happens to one twin happens to the other. Bonk one on the head and the other will grow a bump… at least that’s what cartoons have taught me.
It’s taken a couple of years but Behar has taken over from Brad Sinopoli as that clutch “go to” receiver
Tyson Philpot a fait le walkthrough à l’entraînement d’hier. Son retour approche.
I don’t recall ever seeing or discussing efficiency ratings for receivers. Nick Demski is well in front of the pack in that stat. And Schoen is well ahead in depth yards. And now the Bombers have Lawler back?
Looks like it heavily weighs on targets & completions, just compare hime to the dude above him. Crazy that Demski has caught 88% of the passes thrown his way.
Including 6 of 8 for 20+ yards. That’s impressive.
Schoen is only 4 of 17 for 20+. I’m guessing, though, that having Lawler back in the lineup might open up some room in coverage for Schoen going deep.
Is their anybody on this site who thought Tevin Jones would be leading the pack at this point?..certainly not me. Good on him though.
Heh, cool to see Kai Locksley finding some success outside of Edmonton, but I wouldn’t have predicted he be the #2 receiver for Week 8.

Quite the impressive return to the lineup for Lawler:
It was an absolutely dominant performance from this entire Blue Bombers’ offense, but Lawler stood out the most. He caught 7-of-7 catchable targets for 199 yards and a touchdown — six of those catches went for first downs and two were contested balls. He also had a 14-yard touchdown catch taken away from him thanks to an offside penalty. Lawler has only played two games this season, but he’s averaging an absurd 6.12 yards per route run. If he keeps playing at this level, he could easily challenge for the top receiver spot in the league despite missing six games.
Someone had mentioned being surprised that Tevon Jones was leading the league last week, but I’m surprised the Riders have 2 WR’s at the top without Harris slinging the ball. That is impressive, and with Wieneke as well, I’m sure they can hang with any other WR group.
Would be nice to check out past stats of this group, but I can’t…
Anyone think he can hit 2000?
Not in 12 games but definitely in 18 games. Since 2021 I have considered him to be the best receiver in the league, although his ability was largely wasted in Edmonton and he was also hurt twice last year. He has the best hands of any receiver in the league and makes the most contested and difficult catches. It seems like any ball near him is almost always caught.
Funny, I kinda laughed inwardly when I read his statement that he wanted to reach 2000. But after that last game, it doesn’t feel so absurd anymore. I agree that it’s highly unlikely to keep up that pace, but he looked amazing.
Over the past year he’s rarely been mentioned when they list the best WR’s, but he just keeps showing he belongs at the top as much (or more) than any other player.
Don’t really care about his numbers, I just want to see the offence roll with him there healthy and making big catches.
