    Huge test for Saxelid. Nice to see some teamers returning with the dangerous Bombers return team...

    Blair Smith is a nice addition back for teams, and while we don't lose a lot moving from Glass to Walker, I do think it's a slight drop-off on ST, and a boost for flexibility on defence, with Walker able to play SAM/Nickel or DB.

    With the straight-up flip of Saxelid for Draheim, it could give us some flexibility in the secondary to potentially play another import (Safety) on a rotational basis. Been a fair while since I recall the Esks likely to start more than the required 7 Nationals.

    Kind of feels like Bazzie is the likely scratch again, but he's another guy that could add some extra value in a rotation with Boateng, though Joseph has done fine work that way this year.

    I think you hit the nail on the head that with the 8 NI starters, you could get Bazzie in more. It's less likely we will run with 7 OL in a game unless someone is nicked, or they want to have a backup/rotation specifically for LT, otherwise I could see Asara or Lofton as the scratch this week.

    Game day yall! I'm psyched for this one because frankly I don't like Winnipeg
    I do not like them here nor there
    I do not like them anywhere
    I do not like their shade of blue
    I want us to beat them through and through

    Love it!!!!!!!!!! super pumped for this game as well. Hoping that our offence can build on the success from last week but not counting on it as the Bombers D is significantly better than the Argos.

    Here's to hoping that some of those tarped-off sections can get added into general admission someday.

    GA? I want my seat back from those tarped areas. Miss my old seats.

    That said, that would be great if they became available that way.

    Because we only play Winnipeg twice its imperative to win this game by at least 8 points. Could very well be the difference between a first round bye and a first round match against Calgary.

    Stop Harris and I like our chances. Can't let Strevler beat us with his feet. Need Saxelid to have a good night and our Oline to protect Harris and create holes for Gable.

    Don't get our ass kicked on special teams...

    Don't see it often but I'd be tempted to have somebody spy on most downs. Also wouldn't go blitz heavy tonight at all.

    I agree. If Harris is covered well, Streveler is probably gonna want to run with it before he throws it.

    Absolutely think you will see someone spying him. Either linebacker or a quicker lineman such as Usher. I am very curious to see how we attack Streveler. I felt we played soft early on when we faced a running QB in Vernon Adams against Montreal. So I am hoping we send some different looks early and see if Streveler can pick it apart or if he will just get happy feet and look to run...

    I'd be awfully tempted to only have 3 DL on the field if we get a sizeable lead. Dare him to throw when he has lots of time.

    Streveler has the ability to beat a spy one on one and is also the strongest QB runner I've seen for a long time. Think our D will need to gang tackle him and keep hitting him. Maybe Wpg will tell him to not take chances on getting injured and turtle instead of fighting for extra yds.

    Lapo likes to hand off to his slots plus Wolitatsky. Try to stretch us out along the line & then run Harris. Make lots of motion for our D. Lolley , I'm sure has the answers .

    Maston is out for the Bombers...so there is a weak link in that secondary.

    Doesnít the CFL review all turnovers? Jefferson kicked that ball, not the Eskimo.

    The loose ball interference should have been in the Bomber.
