With 6 games down and 12 to go, here’s how B.C. stacks up

Travis Lulay

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.

The never-ending saga of Khalif Mitchell

Khalif Mitchell

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Andrew Deutschmann talks about the never-ending saga of Khalif Mitchell, a thankfully former BC Lion. His talent and tenacity are just about unmatched throughout the CFL and when he’s on, he is the best defensive player in the league, in my mind. He didn’t always have huge numbers, but he always attracts attention from the other team and opens up opportunities for his teammates to make plays.

Who’s In? Who’s Out? The B.C. Lions have reloaded!

In comes Rudy to backup Lulay

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater tells us that the Leo’s have reloaded their roster in advance of trying to win the 2013 Grey Cup.

In are Justin Harper, Elvis Akpla, Adrian Awasom, Adrian Awasom and DJ Woods. Lets go!

BC Lions Coach Mike Benevides – A season in reflection

Mike Benevides

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Steve Lee points out it has been nearly a week since the B.C. Lions were knocked out of contention for the 100th Grey Cup. Enough time has passed in order to fairly grade the effort of the Lions and their first year coach Mike Benevides. After four years as an assistant coach, he had to learn what it was like to take on 100% of the responsibility. Now he knows. Now he can plan better. Still, tough loss.

Phil says It still appears that Safety Cauchy Muamba, although he is getting better, breaks too late to provide additional coverage on deep routes. Defensive Tackle, Brandon Jordan, is quickly becoming the epicenter of destruction.

The courage of Travis Lulay was also on display. Kudos!
