I'm told there's immense pressure brewing in the Bomber backrooms to find a replacement for the non-passing Chris Streveler and the non-productive/injured Matt Nichols - basically to save the season and next years BOX OFFICE. If you want a QB who can deliver upwards of 300 yds passing (neither Mutt Nichols or Crazy Legs Streveler) are capable of this - Streveler might on a good day hit 140-170 yds, Nichols is a consistent performer in the 175 to 220 yds passing area. Two guys I'd target. One immediately and one during the off-season. NOW - McLeod Bethel Thompson of Toronto. He's a near pure passer, veteran kind of guy. Better pure passer than Nichols who can actually wheel it better than Mighty Mutt on the roll-outs, etc. Not quite as proficient/strong a runner as Streveler but who is? Could be available before the trade deadline from the woeful Argos - who won't be joining us this year for playoff festivities anyways. OFF-SEASON - Dane Evans or Jeremiah Masoli. Evans just rolled the Argos for 440 yds passing as the temporary replacement for Masoli. Ticats might keep him and trade Masoli if Evans can bring them to a Grey Cup - if not go after Evans. Ticats can't keep 2 starters on their roster. Give Hammy Mutt Nichols and a couple hog Canadians, maybe a starting DB or a 1st round draft pick and vola Wpg's starting problems are over. Evans/Streveler or Masoli/Streveler could cause major damage for CFL defenses everywhere. Mutt Nichols and Running Man Chris won't. Based on the stubbornness factor alone I suspect Bombers won't follow my lead. Instead they'll go with Nichols to their deathbed and deathbed it will be if the bombers fizzle out down the stretch. Streveler will be a FA - so he'll sign with BC or Toronto, perhaps even Ottawa as a backup, starter-in-training. Leaving Nichols in the #1 spot after a bomber fizzleout this season will mean continued failing crowds - perhaps 22,000 to 22,500 instaed of the current 24,400 to 25,300. Big pressure on all the job-runners in Wpg., from CEO Wad Miller to GM Kyle to HC O'Smirk . . . . but a hard rain is gonna fall.
