    Hot Eskimos vs. Bombers - GDT



    - - - Updated - - -

    Offensive line gets stronger, and the defensive line gets thinner.

    Be interesting to see if Sewell goes to the 1 or 6 game IR. Howard most definitely to the latter.

    No more back up Running backs, scary.
    Young is ahead of Hightower, scarier.
    PLEASE do not feed the trolls!

    Sewell listed on the 1-game joining Peters, Zylstra who remain out. Behar joins them on the 1-game but I wouldn't be surprised if he is just a stash now that Chambers is healthy. I suspect Roy OL sits as well as Hightower - Maston still listed as the starter at corner but I figure that's Hightower's job once healthy. Boateng also listed as the starter but its not a "National Position" since his rotational backup is Yates. We might see Hoffman-Ellis actually take first snaps at WIL LB and Boateng first snaps at DE and Mulumba rotates in paired with Yates.

    Yeah, agreed. I was thinking that Stafford needs to stay in the lineup, so the receiver position will stay somewhat solid for this one. Good to see the Duke healthy and starting again.

    We didn't have a back up RB last week either, but CMC can fill in there if needed.

    And even Dupuis filled in with a catch for a first down.

    My guess is you will see Muamba come in as an extra DB when Boateng subs out for an international.

    My thoughts also. The depth on the Dline is a concern considering that the size of the Bomber Oline. Just hope we don't get worn down without Sewell. Can see Wpg going long early to test Young. I hope Figueroa has a good game against Westerman who has a history of hitting low on QB's.

    I expect Andrew Harris to be the guy to do the most damage to us for the Bombers on Thursday. Lots of short passes by Nichols.

    I agree, then after a while of that bomb deep...

    Have the Eskimos ever released any info on Zylstra's injury?

    So what was the point in some dolts getting so pissy at Ed Hervey if they're not going to give fans any information anyway???

    Nothing was going to change. Especially with all the cuts in the papers...we are lucky to get what we get. The best information we usually get comes from Campbell or from those in the know on this site...

    Look at the "changes from last week" in that Bomber game day roster. Wow.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    With guys about to start coming off of the 6 game, I doubt we ever see "no changes" this year.

    Unless I'm counting wrong, I see they are short some nationals for starters. Assuming they sort the same way as the Esks with the starter being the name closest to the position I only see 9 starting Nationals.

    Nevermind. I thought the starter number was 10 or 11.

    That secondary is ripe for the picking if you ask me for the Bombers. Especially on Carmichael's side...

    Re: Eskimos vs. Bombers - GDT

    I don't want to take anything away from the Bombers because they are a good team but I feel like we've matched up well against them in the Mike Reilly era the last few years. And we seem to be able to win at IGF even when the Bombers are playing well. So given that we're getting some help back on the OLine and in the receiving core, I think we can win this one if the Dline can have a big game pressuring Nichols and stuffing Harris (the Esk killer) without Mondo in the lineup.

    Not expecting us to win in a route, but I am cautiously optimistic that we can pull it out.

    Defensive line without Sewell is a huge concern for me.

    That's my biggest concern as well but I'm hopeful that Bowers and Cummings can fill the void in the short term.

    I think bowers and Cummings will be fine but instead of rotating with Sewel they have Moore instead. I think Winnipeg is going to try and take advantage when Moore is in.

    The defensive line is the backbone of this team and Sewell is the best player on it. Thankfully he's only one-gamed and not six-gamed as we need him playing against the western teams.

    Cummings is a beast. I think we'll be ok tonight.
