NWSB Insider and BC Lions Blogger Steve Lee gives us three major points to consider while recapping the 2013 CFL season. The emergence of Andrew Harris launched him into “superstar” status. Solomon Elimimian, Adam Bighill, Keron Williams and Anton McKenzie provided leadership for Rich Stubler’s defensive strategies. But among the good come the questions that must be answered this offseason.

Durant puts the nail in 2013 B.C. Lions coffin

BC vs. Sask

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. To recap. The Roughriders ran roughshod over the Lions D for the entire second half and the Lions made Darian Durant look like Mike Vick circa 2004. For as good a game as the Lions Andrew Harris and Stefan Logan had on the ground – Durant was better. It’s back to the drawing board for the Lions after a peculiar and ultimately disappointing season.

Buck Pierce, Rennie Curran

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Edmonton Eskimos . Giving game balls to Buck Pierce, JR Larose and Stefan Logan. Lypka goes on to say not only did Logan have a good game on offense, he also was a beast on the return game. He averaged over 20 yards on kick returns and close to 10 yards on punt returns and those yards were sorely needed by the Lions – especially in the first half.

Bottom line, this was the most impressive defensive showing of the year from the Lions.

DeMarco was fine. Travis Lulay should sit back and take as long as he needs

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Roughriders. Giving game balls to Dante Marsh, Paul McCallum, and Thomas Demarco. Ben loved the Lions’ latest victory. Other noteables on D. Adam Bighill was a presence as usual and Cord Parks was solid in the secondary. And on ST’s. Tim Brown was also strong for the entire game, averaging 20 yards per kickoff return and almost 10 yards per punt.

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.

Pleased to welcome the BC Lions next generation

Emmanuel Arcenaux

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Steve Lee points out today that following nine years of the Wally Buono era and 12 years of GeRoy Simon commanding the spotlight, the new look Leo’s have now started to pen the next chapter in team history, one that appears to be very bright and primed for success. Behind Adam Bighill, Emmanuel Arceneaux, Keron Williams, Mark Ianniuzzi, Shawn Gore, Dante Marsh, Cord Parks and Travis Lulay lead the way.
