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 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 and B.C. Lions’ blogger Dave B gives you everything you need to know about betting on the BC Lions vs. Montreal Alouettes game coming up this weekend. The line for this one favors the Leo’s by 9. The over/under is set at 47.5. The Lions didn’t look terrific in a win last week against Calgary but they were certainly good enough. Travis Lulay completed 16 of 28 passes for 223 yards and Andrew Harris ran for just 56 yards.
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 and B.C. Lions’ blogger Dave B gives you everything you need to know about betting on the Calgary Stampeders vs. BC Lions game coming up this weekend. The Stampeders downed the Lions in their season opener and have an arsenal of weapons on offense that should still give BC’s defense a bit of a tough time. While the Lions will be playing on home turf, Dave suggests going with Calgary, as their offensive might may be too much for the home team.
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.
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.
