    The easy solution for the defense is to hire Lovie in the off season to be the Defensive Coordinator :) . You do need to give Lovie his due, because he was also killed by poor draft picks from JA on the D-side of the ball, but still had some pretty good defenses (top 5 last year).

    OTOH, clock management at the end of the halves in the CFL is more difficult than in the NFL. So it's best if he doesn't forget that part . . . good training for keeping one's head when everything else is being lost. ;) (apologies to Kipling)

    "I think." is right. 50,000 "banjo pickin' inbreds" baying for our blood. Not a good place to wear the black and gold. It's supposed to be only 3C and sunny so at least it won't be an ice bowl. That would definitely favour the Riders as they're used to spending half the season playing football on an ice rink.

    Since you brought this up. I thought Harbaugh made a terrible decision to challenge the Jeffery catch late in the 4th. It was a six-yard pass on second down. Sure, there's the difference between 3rd-and-8 and 3rd-and-2, but not a big enough difference to spend your last challenge and waste one of your timeouts on. I thought it was a Lovian move on Harbaugh's part.

    How quickly people forget Lovie was the DC as well as HC for Bears and he sucked after Babich another moron couldn't handle the job after firing Chico. I really hope someone hires Lovie to prove the point again of him being a moron coach but this time around it won't be with my team.

    That's what you get for trying to explain to them that they can't marry their sweetheart because there's a law against it.

    The "banjo pickin' inbreds" is a now famous insult hurled at the Rider Nation a few years back by the Bomber's FG kicker after a game there. Ever since, the Bombers - Riders game after Labour day is known as the "Banjo Bowl". The kicker semi-retracted the insult by saying "the vast majority of the people in Saskatchewan have no idea how to play the banjo."

    Rider Nation is kinda proud of that insult. It's not one I'd adopt.

    We'd be 5-11 or 4-12 with Lovie and Tice.
