    That's the opposite of bold.

    Do you feel like you are going out on a limb with this prediction? ;)

    Bombers have the personnel to won, so it may be close.

    Brock was on the EE website the other day saying that in the CFL you need the big 3 or you're done: Kickers, Canadians and Quarterbacks.

    Well, it's interesting then that 2 guys from the 2017 CFL draft are defensive starters this week.

    Adams and Colq. are on the 6 game IR so it looks like the patchwork D-backfield will be an experiment that's around for more than a week. Hightower is banged up too. If Nichols wasn't injured it could have been a very long night out there for the rookies. It still might be, we'll see.

    depressing. I didn't expect the injury bug to hit before the season even started.
    still really looking forward to the game, though.
    Imagine. we have an offense with an all star running back right from game one.

    Having said that, if there are any WPG fans lurking in here, just wanted to shout out your thread on the Jets board for being excellent and informative. One of the best places on the internet to keep on the Blue Bombers.

    At least I made one. That's bold enough.

    Bombers have an issue at QB, and we have one in the secondary. It was questionable WITH our starters. Now this.

    I've predicted both standings for our annual bet with a friend (a CFL exec). Would it be bold if I posted them?

    I'm not a Jets fan, so I've never checked it out. I'm a Bomber fan though, didn't even think of checking it they had a Bomber thread

    No. Just make a prediction for this game. That will be bold enough.

    Esks 34, Winnipeg 29

    If our defence was intact it'd be a lot bigger margin.

    good call.

    I'm going to say 37-17 for the esks, and Bowman drops a sure TD catch.

    I don't see their offense clicking very well in the first game of the season. Contain Harris and win easily.

    I’ll go with your prediction. I’ve got the Eskimos-7 and the total over 49.

    Where is Bryant Mitchell? They talk about him on TSN but when I checked the depth chart, he wasn't on it. Is he injured?

    What a beautiful throw!

    Looks like Walker is ready to prove some doubters wrong this year.
