NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Steve Lee gives us three major points to consider while recapping the 2013 CFL season. The emergence of Andrew Harris launched him into “superstar” status. Solomon Elimimian, Adam Bighill, Keron Williams and Anton McKenzie provided leadership for Rich Stubler’s defensive strategies. But among the good come the questions that must be answered this offseason.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. To recap. The Roughriders ran roughshod over the Lions D for the entire second half and the Lions made Darian Durant look like Mike Vick circa 2004. For as good a game as the Lions Andrew Harris and Stefan Logan had on the ground – Durant was better. It’s back to the drawing board for the Lions after a peculiar and ultimately disappointing season.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Calgary Stampeders. Giving game balls to Paul McCallum, Adam Bighill, and Andrew Harris.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Edmonton Eskimos . Giving game balls to Buck Pierce, JR Larose and Stefan Logan. Lypka goes on to say not only did Logan have a good game on offense, he also was a beast on the return game.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka asks why today. Why is Buck Pierce NOT playing in place of the injured Travis Lulay? Keep in mind that Pierce is less than two years removed from a solid season in which he helped the Winnipeg Blue Bombers win games playing pretty ugly football. The Bombers made it to the Grey Cup in 2011 and a lot of that was due to the impact Pierce had on that team.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Calgary Stampeders. Giving game balls to Nick Moore, Cord Parks and Tim Brown.

The long-time Leo, BC community activist, and the greatest receiver in the history of the CFL returns to Vancouver tonight.

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his Week 12 CFL review for the BC Lions vs. Winnipeg Blue-Bombers in Winterpeg. Phil says the Lions did what they had to do, go into enemy territory and lay a beat down on a weaker opponent. With the “W” BC secured a spot in the post season party standing all alone in second place.
Big Play Bighill Adam Bighill the BC Lions all world linebacker has won the CFL defensive player of the week for the second time in three weeks. Congrats Adam!
