Title: 2011 Argo's thread
Post by: ThatLeafsFan on July 15, 2011, 08:07:03 PM
Owens with a 89 yard return and then on the next play, Lemon runs it in for a touchdown!

Currently tied with Montreal near the end of the 1st, 7-7.

Argo's getting set to take on the impressive Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Hopefully they can shock everyone and pull off the win! Pierce is playing I think.

GO ARGOS GO

Tough loss to swallow at the hands of the Eskimos last night. The chaotic end to the first half with Edmonton getting a third chance to punch it in from the 1-yard line (after it appeared time expired) was the turning point.

Really dissapointed in the Argo's this season thus far, but what can you expect when they really didn't do anything positive in the off-season.

My second CFL team is in the same boat, damn Riders. Also, of course the team I hate the most, Bombers, is first in the league, blah.

I thought there were going to pull off a win, the way they started the game, sit Lemon out next game and run with the other guy for a game or two, what have they got to lose really.

I don't know why they keep starting him.  I keep hearing Barker talk about that one quarter Lemon had before getting hurt a few games ago as if that is proof that he's good enough to be a top QB.  I'm not exactly sure how two drives shows proof of that when we have a year and a half of him not being good enough to do anything.  Last year the defense let the Argo's win in spite of Lemon.  This year, they let the defense fall apart and now both the offense and defense are bad.

Glad they won, but they are lucky to have won.

Up 21-1 in the 3rd and they only won 24-18? Pathetic, they need some changes, not sure what, as I don't watch that often (would rather be outside in the summer), but something has to be done.

Can't beleaf it took them this long to do something about it, hopefully things will get better for the Argo's now. The only high point I have of this season so far is my second team, the Riders, beating the Bombers on the weekend.

Hopefully the Argo's can improve the rest of the way and the Riders can beat the Bombers again this upcoming weekend as I will be in enemy territory at the game.

Oh?

Is there specific manner in which you have to miss it?

I don't know the rule, I just flicked over at saw it was 24-24 and saw from there.

it's a point for missing a fieldgoal if the receiving team can't run it out of their endzone ...or chooses not to

Well that's the season for the Argghhhhhgo's.
They gotta make some changes like the G.M should step down.
Unreal record for this G.M, and he still has a job.

Tonight i'm down at Ivor Wynne my daughter is dancing with her classmates at halftime. (Dance Studio)
Should be a decent game B.C in town.

Title: 2011 Grey Cup - Winnipeg & B.C.
Post by: ThatLeafsFan on November 27, 2011, 03:33:36 PM
I am expecting a really close game, possibly high scoring. Would be nice if Winnipeg lost of the last play of the game cuz of a too many men on the field call, would really shut them up about bugging us Riders fans all the time ;D

mmmmm beer and party food ! No work tomorrow, gotta love Hydro Mondays (southern Hydro employees get every 2nd Monday off)

It was a raucous crowd of over 54,000 fans at B.C. Place Stadium, that saw the Lions defeat the Blue Bombers by a score of 34-24, in the 99th Grey Cup game.  It also saw B.C. quarterback, Travis Lulay, a homegrown talent, win MVP honours, and Lions' coach Wally Buono winning his 5th championship in that capacity.

As for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 22 years and counting without a Grey Cup victory, they sported the
second-worst passing record in the league this season. 
The Bombers attempted to stifle the Lions offence to no
avail, as B.C. was the more aggressive of the two teams
 on the field.

Next year's 100th Grey Cup game will be played in
Toronto.  It would be nice if the Argos were to be there.
  Of course, unless the Argonauts improve drastically, it's
 highly doubtful they'll be.

Prime Minister Harper was in attendance at B.C. Place,
along with rocker Gene Simmons.

Congrats to the Lions on a game well-played.  Dub them the 'comeback' team, as B.C. Is the only team in CFL history to have started the regular season 0-5, and go on all the way to a Grey Cup triumph.

And to think that wasn't even the best game of the weekend at BC place. The Vanier Cup was played there on Friday night and was a more exciting game to me. Maybe that it went to OT helped.

Hopefully Ray has lots of gas in the tank. If so maybe this finally shores things up at QB for the Argos. 

Doesn't seem like a very steep price for a starting QB.  Cheaper than Bishop cost, no?

Honestly, I couldn't tell ya what we gave up for Bishop. I've completely forgotten.

Now there's hope at quarterback.  At least, Ray will bring some stability and respectability to that position.

Strange story...but, the end result sadly common...CTE found in brains of many CFLers and NFLers...as an example, check out the link (within this story) of NFLer Andre Waters, who committed suicide -- 44 yrs. old with the brain of an 85 yr. old man -- had CTE...scary stuff...
