Lessons from the Lions biggest game yet

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.

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.

What I’m watching vs Calgary tonight

BC vs. Winnipeg Love em & Hate em

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.

Who will the Lions turn to in that must-win moment?

Bet on BC Lions Football

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.

Four things the B.C. Lions need to fix

Nice game BC. Well played. A huge win.

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.

The driving forces behind the BC Lions offense

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater returns to writing today with an analysis of the B.C. Lions offensive line this week. He points out its nice how RB Andrew “humble” Harris will always deflect and give kudos to the horses up front, the offensive linemen that have been paving his way. The big men include Ben Archibald, Jovan Olafioye, Kirby Fabien, Patrick Kabongo, and Matthew Norman. They protect Travis Lulay et al.

B.C. Lions and their same old story

Andrew Harris

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater returns to his writing roots with an analysis of the B.C. Lions’ first four games. Noting that this year’s squad has the same feel of past squads due to the fact that Andrew Harris still commands where B.C. will go NOT Travis Lulay, not much has changed from one year to the next with the Lions. If they want to emerge and excite their fans further, they’ll need to improve their special teams and, in particular, their return game.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Eskimos. Giving game balls to Andrew Harris, Dante Marsh, and Paul McCallum, Bryan revels in the Lions’ latest victory at BC Place and their second consecutive victory over Edmonton. Well all-in-all this was a solid team win for the Lions. If anyone was curious how the Travis Lulay versus Mike Reilly battle would go down.

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.

Korey Williams was the ST’s standout.
