NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Ben Lypka recaps the drama between the team, Arland Bruce and Wally Buono. Bruce is upset that he didn’t get a call from Buono, Mike Benevides or anyone involved with the BC Lions. But that’s the nature of the CFL. The Lions face Bruce and the Montreal Alouettes tonight. And, of course, everyone loves balloons.
NWSB Insider Ben Lypka focuses on the idea that Travis Lulay is a great quarterback and seems like a nice guy, but that could be the problem. He’s never had a receiver he’s really connected with. Who will step up? Emmanuel Arceneaux? Nick Moore? Courtney Taylor? Marco Iannuzzi and Shawn Gore? This team needs a No. 1 target.
New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane gives us his five biggest reasons why he hates the Geroy Simon trade to the Roughriders. First off, green is clearly not his favorite colour, and Riders green is even worse. Green is the colour of envy, not the colour suitable for Superman. Plus the fact that the Lions got absolutely no value in the trade in return. The leagues best WR of all time gets traded for nothing in return is enough to make anybody’s blood boil.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from the Week 11 Montreal Alouettes vs BC Lions match up. Chalk up a win for the Leo’s. With the two game clash of the Titans now recent history, the Lions set their attention to another re-match, this time against the Toronto Argonauts. Shawn Gore, Nick Moore, Earnest Jackson and Marco Iannuzzi combined for 17 catches and 4 touchdowns.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from the Week 10 BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes match up. Chalk up a loss for the Leo’s. While Phil gave props to Tim Brown this week he must point out that the Lions O couldn’t capitalize on the returner’s success. After returns of 63 and 52 yards, the Lions were forced to settle for Paul McCallum Field Goals.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Steve Lee brings us his 2012 CFL BC Lions mid-season grades. On offense the Leo’s go as Travis Lulay goes and he has continued to prove that last years stats were no fluke. On defense led by the duo of Adam Bighill and Anton McKenzie and the tag team of Keron Williams and Khreem Smith who have tallied 11 QB sacks, the Lions have found multiple ways to halt their opponent.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Sunday afternoon’s match up with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Chalk up another victory for the Defence. Jabar and the D-Tackle rotation absolutely stonewalled the rushing attack. Eric Taylor was his usual nasty self while Brandon Peguese and Mo Evans impressed everyone.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Reggie Gill after each week of the regular season and possibly during the CFL playoffs should the Leo’s be so lucky will stop by and bring you his B.C. Lions game balls. Balls are awarded to the Leo’s offensive MVP Travis Lulay, and on defense this week Cauchy Muamba. I’m not going to tell you who gets the special teams game ball. You’ll have to read that.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his Week 7 CFL preview for the Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. BC Lions from Vancouver’s BC Place. Maybe the change of venue is all that needed for a changed result. After a week three loss to Saskatchewan, BC has shown signs of dominance especially on the defensive side. A two game winning streak can be attributed to the more consistent play of Travis Lulay.
BC Lions Insider and northwest sports blogger Steve Lee brings us a good piece on the Leo’s Andrew Harris today. Starting the 2012 season fully embedded in the starting lineup, Harris has not disappointed. With the Lions currently in a three way battle for first place in the West, the Winnipeg native sits just 25 yards being the rushing/receiving leader Brandon Whitaker. C’mon and roar you Lions roar.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his Week 6 CFL preview for the BC Lions vs. Toronto Argonauts from Toronto. Tim Brown ranks 4th in return yards but that’s in large part to a defence that forces punts. QB Travis Lulay had a tremendous game in Calgary finding his big name targets with relative ease.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his Week 5 CFL preview for the BC Lions vs. Calgary Stampeders from Calgary. After the lull in the loss to Saskatchewan, Andrew Harris had a magnificent bounce back game against Edmonton. The Leo’s will need more of this and an upgrade by Travis Lulay and Geroy Simon to get a win in Calgary on Saturday.
