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.

BC vs. Winnipeg Love em & Hate em

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 and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today with the question of whether or not the special teams unit is hurting the Lions. Sure, the Lions are off to a 2-1 start, but as Andrew points out, they could just as easily be 0-3 at this point.

Whether it is not giving the O good field position, or some bad snaps and holds, or to flat out missing extra points, the play just has not been good enough. Plain and simple.
