Bombers with every advantage going in and every possible break during the game and still needed a fluker at the last minute to squeeze out a popcorn fart. Didn't realize Bresc was on the 6-game, that's pretty lame. I was wondering at the beginning what Sindani was doing in over him. Anyway pretty clear what needs work. Gave Hamilton the game too, even if the kick return should have been called back.

What a freaking weird season so far.

If you'd have told me after losing all those players to NFL or free agency and then add to it the injuries that the Stamps would still be 5-3 I'd have said thats pretty good, can't complain about that. Yet somehow despite all that I'm oddly disappointed because this team could/should easily be 7-1 right now.

Ah well. Get healthy and then get hot down the stretch.

Stamps v Bombers late October have the home at home matchup which could be interesting

3 losses:
Ottawa - had a decent lead.
Hamilton - gave up 2 return TDs
Winnipeg - gave up 2 return TDs.

But also could easily have lost a couple of the wins. Down 11 late vs BC. Ottawa gifted a game to us in which we didn’t score a TD.

Not that broken up about the loss, hopefully Morris didn't reinjure his achillies.

Coverage team really dropped the ball this week, and Sindani (hey-oo). Thought the O-line didn't have a great game either.

Oh well it was a short week, take a couple days and rest up and then figure some stuff out.

From what I read Morris injured his other achilles. Bombers win despite Nichols being an absolutely awful QB. I was quite impressed with Arbuckle, he played pretty damn well.

As frustrating as that game was, mainly due to special teams coverage, I think it also showed that the Stamps are fine. If Bo comes in healthy and on point, the Stamps are going to be very difficult to beat down the stretch and into the playoffs.

Game was frustrating for sure - 2 return TDs and a fumble resulting in another 3 points? JFC, get your crap together special teams.

The Bumblers don't look particularly scary at all - but then no team in the CFL does this year. I haven't watched a single game this season that has really been good football. Usually you might say a league with a lot of parity is exciting, but this is more like a lot of parity at the bottom of the barrel. Which team will screw up less to get the win?

Meh football all around.
