A clash of two CFL West powers squared off last Sunday

Nice game BC. Well played. A huge win.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater tells us what exactly went right and a little wrong in the Leo’s game vs. the Roughriders. It’s another Love’em & Hate’em post. Phil Loved The New Bash Brothers: Ryan Phillips, Dante Marsh and Korey Banks. They have long been the identity of the Lions secondary but Josh Bell and Cord Parks were out to prove themselves against some tough competition.

Losing Travis Lulay could be a good thing

Travis Lulay, BC Lions

NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Ben Lypka breaks down why sitting Travis Lulay could be a good thing for the team. Lulay is in the midst of a slump, and allowing him to pick the brain of Buck Pierce could do him some good. In limited action against Montreal, Thomas DeMarco played well, and getting him more reps could do him good before the playoffs.

Travis Lulay

Good read from Sportsnet.ca Travis Lulay couldn’t be sure how his badly he injured his shoulder.  Other than that, no complaints. The B.C. quarterback threw for a touchdown and ran for another. http://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/lulay-passes-rushes-for-tds-as-lions-top-als/ Lulay passes, rushes for TDs as Lions top Als – Sportsnet.ca www.sportsnet.ca Travis Lulay threw for a touchdown and ran for another […]

Buono blasts coaches and players in a week of player transactions

940-buono-wally

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us a piece on Wally Buono’s rant to the media about the state of the Lions. And he very well should be upset says Phil. This team is rolling in mediocre, not a substance they are used to be playing in. Will the roster moves help? Will the call to the masses help? Only time will tell, but the good thing is the Buck Pierce move at least lights a fire under Travis Lulay’s lagging behind.

The Buck stops here – Pierce returns to the Lions den

But most importantly, it gives Travis Lulay a little more time to recover.

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Travis Erbacher brings us a piece today about the re-emergence of Buck Pierce in Vancouver. The old reliable QB is back. And yes, the reliable points to his injuries. Travis points out all of Pierce’s past injuries, and notes not all of the head injuries were listed as concussions. Good, that’s a relief for Leo’s fans everywhere.

BC Lions 2013 defensive mid-season grades

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ Blogger Ben Lypka hands out his mid-season grades for the BC Lions’ defence. While the team leads the league in interceptions, Ben would still like to see more output in this category from a certain few players. The defence has been good, but this team is still struggling in the aspects of what our fans expectations are.

NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Steve Lee recaps the trade that has brought Buck Pierce back to BC. For 31-year-old, nine-year CFL vet Buck Pierce, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers / BC Lions trade that took place on Monday afternoon has brought the pivot back to where it all started.

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Travis Erbacher gives you his midseason analysis as well as Bulls and Bears on the Lions’ 2013 squad so far. Citing that they haven’t had the best of seasons and haven’t really lived up to expectation, Travis has quite a few players on both the Bulls (good) and Bears (bad) lists.

What I’m watching vs Hamilton today

Emmanuel Arcenaux, should be a virtual lock to be on the roster

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today with a post about what he’s watching on the field tonight in the BC vs. Hamilton matchup. If both offences come out to play, we could be in for a real shootout at BC Place tonight. There should be lots of scoring, lots of great plays and plenty of fireworks. Despite his inefficiency over the last few games, Travis Lulay should be licking his chops to face these guys. Nice to see Tim Brown back too.

NWSB Gambling insider and BC Lions blogger Dave B weighs in on the CFL matchup in Week 11 between the B.C. Lions and Hamilton Tiger-Cats on September 7, 2013. Fresh off a close victory over the Ti-Cats last week, the Lions will be looking for back-to-back wins against a squad with a fairly decent passing attack. Dave says Andrew Harris must step up big tonight.

Lions re-acquire Buck Pierce from the Blue Bombers

NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Andrew Deutschmann breaks down the team’s recent trade to bring back Buck Pierce. The hope here is that Pierce won’t have to play much, as Travis Lulay is the consensus starting quarterback. However, having someone who is familiar with the offence is crucial in case adversity strikes. The Lions acquired Pierce from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in exchange for wide receiver Akeem Foster

BC Lions 2013 offensive mid-season grades

Shawn Gore

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ Blogger Ben Lypka hands out his mid-season grades for the BC Lions’ offense. While their records stands at a respectable 6-3 on the year, the Lions have been fairly mediocre and really haven’t looked like a Grey Cup contender. Andrew Harris has been one of the most consistent players on offense but Lulay and the rest of the squad have been rather unimpressive.
