NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Calgary Stampeders. Giving game balls to Nick Moore, Cord Parks and Tim Brown. Honourable mentions to Adam Bighill, Dante Marsh and Korey Banks on defense. Next up for the Lions is another trip to Regina, but this time it could be with Travis Lulay at the helm.
NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Giving game balls to Andrew Haris, Adam Bighill and Paul McCallum. Honourable mentions to Nick Moore and Courtney Taylor on offense, while Cody Parks and Solomon Elimimian made plays on defense. Bottom line, this was the most impressive defensive showing of the year from the Lions.
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 Travis Erbacher gives you his midseason analysis as well as Bulls and Bears on the Lions’ 2013 squad so far. Citing that they haven’t had the best of seasons and haven’t really lived up to expectation, Travis has quite a few players on both the Bulls (good) and Bears (bad) lists.
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.
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 BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater gives us a look at how Travis Lulay and the team can return to prominence. Slater names a couple of goals the QB must aim for, including 5,000 yards, finding multiple targets (while establishing a No. 1 option), and simply put, scoring more touchdowns. This season, much like the previous two, hinges on the dominant right arm of Lulay.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Steve Lee points out it that it may not have been the best of years for Lions WR Geroy Simon, but would letting the veteran go be the right choice at this moment in time? Simon still has a lot to offer in the mentoring department, and could show a lot to the young receiving corps that will be the future of the Lions.
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.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Alistair Corp 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 Nick Moore, and on defense this week Adam Bighill. The Special Teams game ball goes to veteran kicker Paul McCallum.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger The Bartender Phil Slater brings us the CFL preseason update for the BC Lions blowout this week over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Tough to put much stock in a preseason game but a 34 point margin of victory makes life a little easier for the players. One thing is for certain, Mike Reilly looks more than capable to fill in for Travis Lulay.
