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 the resiliency of the Lions head coach Mike Benevides. Travis touts the coach for his ability to bounce back after a tough defeat and lead his boys to victory. All Benevides needs now is a couple Grey Cup championships under his belt to silence the CFL critics around the country.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions Blogger Ben Lypka recaps Damon Allen’s (Yes Marcus Allen’s brother for our American friends reading this today) honour onto the Wall of Fame, but questions whether or not he deserves it more than another polarizing presence, Casey Printers. Allen only produced one Grey Cup in the seven years he was with the Lions. Printers put together one of the best single seasons by a Lions quarterback in club history in 2004.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane brings us his 3 must see games for this season. The defending Grey Cup champs, the Toronto Argonauts, will be taking on the Lions in a battle of the last 2 league champions. Then the Riders come to town with new addition and Lions favorite Geroy SImon in tow. Then the Stampeders come to town in what is sure to be a battle for the west. I hope Travis Lulay brings his A games.
NWSB Writer Josh Hall interviews BC Lions third year Wide Receiver Marco Iannuzzi. The 26 year old Calgary native thinks this team is fine headed into the 2013 season even with the void left by Geroy Simon and Arland Bruce on offense. Also, how did the Bostom bombings affect Iannuzzi who played four years of college ball in Massachusetts? You ready to roar in 2013 Lions fans?
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us not only the must see games on the docket for the Lions in the 2013 football season, but also the most notable dates that any fan won’t want to miss. Besides the normal big dates like opening day, playoffs, and the 101st Grey Cup, Phil points out what might be the most watched game of the year for fans when the Riders come to town bringing Leo’s legend Geroy Simon.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil Slater is here to give us his rendition of the BC Lions coaching staff report cards. Phil was quite generous actually, giving out a few A’s to the Leo’s coach’s. The biggest and brightest A of them all though goes to head coach Mike Benevides for the job he did with the Lions all season long. If not for two games against Calgary, the Lions could’ve been the team hoisting the Cup in 2012.
New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane gives us his reasoning behind why the BC Lions in the 2012 Grey Cup would have made for a much greater challenge for the Toronto Argos. He points out Travis Lulay is the leader of the Lions. There is no denying or doubting that. But he spent the end of the season nursing an injury and saw little meaningful game reps heading into the postseason.
New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane gives us his fearless prediction as to why the BC Lions will win the 2012 Grey Cup. The Leos have the league’s sack leader Keron Williams, and standout Adam Bighill, who finished second in the CFL in tackles and fourth in sacks. But it is far from a two-man show on B.C.’s stingy defense. Another reason. The West Final. The B.C. Lions lost just one game in the comfort of their own home this season.
New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane 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 this week is tough. If any one player stood out, it was the ever-so consistent RB Andrew Harris. On defense all the usual suspects came out to shine. And who else shone brightest… LB Adam Bighill.
New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane 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 Mike Reilly who saw his second bit of game action of 2012. On D who else? Adam Bighill. We apologize for not doing a What Went Wrong piece this week. Confusion! lol
BC Lions Insider and northwest sports blogger Steve Lee brings us a good piece on the Leo’s Mike Reilly today. As a lifelong professional backup QB, it’s never easy coming in for a starter that has your team on the verge of a playoff bert, but Mike Reilly did just that for the Lions against Edmonton. He may start next game against Calgary as well. C’mon and roar you Lions roar.
