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 Hamilton vs. BC 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 Insider and BC Lions Blogger Travis Erbacher takes a look at an offence that left him at a loss for words following the matchup against Montreal. It’s odd to say that an offense was terrible when they managed to put up 38 points, but so is the case. Jacques Chapdelaine has to take the blame, as he’s gotten to cute with Travis Lulay, Shawn Gore and Marco Iannuzzi.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions Blogger Andrew Deutschmann breaks down why this may be Jacques Chapdelaine’s last season as the team’s offensive coordinator. Deutschmann admits that the struggles of Travis Lulay aren’t all Chapdelain’s fault. However, ten years with one organization is a long time, and after a down year, he just might consider moving on to become a coach elsewhere, such as the Montreal Alouettes.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Alouettes. Bryan asks what went wrong? The Lions’ defense is one of the league’s stingiest, particularly in the secondary, and although the unit forced a boatload of turnovers, the yards just continued to rack up against them. B.C. allowed an uncharacteristic 464 yards of offense on Thursday, far higher than their typical numbers. Ex-Lion Arland Bruce III had himself a great game.
NWSB Insider & BC Lions blogger Travis Erbacher weighs in today with a piece about what the Lions may be able to take away from their most important game of the year thus far. It was a different style of game played this time between the Leo’s and the Stampeders, but Travis would still like to see Travis Lulay open up down field a bit more often.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Stampeders. Giving game balls to Andrew Harris, Solomon Elimimian, and Tim Brown, Bryan revels in the Lions’ latest victory at BC Place. How bout those new uniforms, which include all black material with orange trim and a matte black helmet, are something you don’t see often in pro football.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane weighs in today with a post giving the Leo’s some grades for the first third of their 2013 season. He points out the key to the home stretch of this year for B.C. will be winning the season series versus Calgary, and then of course finishing business the way they couldn’t last November. Andrew Harris has been the offense’s rock and much needed spark thus far in the year. On D there is a lack of pressure generated up front.
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. Calgary matchup. Going into this season, if you told him the Lions would be last in the league in sacks in Week 8, Andrew would have said you were crazy. Sadly, you’re not crazy. The biggest reason for this seems to be moving Keron Williams. Special Teams. Whether it’s blocking or poor decision-making by Tim Brown, something needs to change soon.
NWSB Insider & BC Lions blogger Travis Erbacher weighs in today with a piece about what kinds of changes the Leo’s need to make in order to repeat as playoff contenders this year. So far they have been sluggish at best. Andrew Harris and Travis Lulay have been great, but just not on the same day unfortunately. More pass rush is needed, and the youngsters need to start pulling their weight too. Click the link to see if you agree with Travis.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Bombers. Giving game balls to Travis Lulay, Solomon Elimimian, and Tim Brown. Bryan says it wasn’t pretty, but the boys came together and got the job done in front of the home town fans. Next up is the tough Calgary Stampeders on the 17th. Go Lions! Special nod. Tim Brown. If you watched this game you know why I can’t name anyone else the special teams player of the game.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater tells us what exactly went wrong for the Leo’s on Tuesday night in Toronto. It may have been the loss of Rookie Guard Kirby Fabien early in the contest that took the wind out of BC’s sails and put it solely behind the good ship Argonaut. A positive? Linebacker Adam Bighill was effective in his return to action, flying off the edge for 6 tackles and 2 sacks.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater returns to writing today with an analysis of the B.C. Lions offensive line this week. He points out its nice how RB Andrew “humble” Harris will always deflect and give kudos to the horses up front, the offensive linemen that have been paving his way. The big men include Ben Archibald, Jovan Olafioye, Kirby Fabien, Patrick Kabongo, and Matthew Norman. They protect Travis Lulay et al.
