aka: BANJO BOWL Pretty certain (around 85%) that this degenerates into a horribly embarrassing loss for Mike O'Smirk and his tattered coaching legacy. Bombers were broken by that last minute 75 yd drive the Riders perpetrated on a stunned bomber defense last week. Their spirits were broken, so was their confidence. This week the bombers will have nearly 1/2 of their starting roster out with either injuries, suspensions or poor play; Brando Alexander (DB), Andrew Harris (RB), Mutt Nichols (QB), Jackerson Jeffcoat (DE), Nic Demski (WR), Chris Matthews (Traded), The Irish Bull, Paddy Neufeld (OG), Cody Speller (C), Yucky Whitehead (WR/KR), Chad Rempel (LS), Mercy Matson (DB) plus a few others the usually paranoid O'Shea is waiting to announce just prior to game-time. It also appears Bomber overpaid superstar MLB has lost at least a step (if not more) and is no longer a mega-force in the bomber's defense. Bombers are planning to stifle Cody Fajardo (Rider QB) spin moves with strategy. They tried that the last time - and Fajardo beat them 7 times out of 8 on the spin-o-rama. This game will take a different tone. Look for bombers non-passing QB Chris Streveler to pass for over 200 yds (totally incapable of more) but his running totals will diminish to under 65 yds. Bombers will take several stupid penalties (an increasing O'Shea specialty) and will be punished on special teams and punting (Johnny Puntface aka Jon Ryan) will outpunt Justin Medlock by at least 15-17 yds a kick. Tag in O'Shea's unfocused yelping on the sidelines, Richie Hall falling asleep at different points during the affair and PLOP (bomber OC Paul LaPolice) joining in with O'Shea on the Nutbar Express. Look for Bombers to continue their slow (but sure) slide into the abyss. Riders 39 Bombers 20 Riders jut into 1st in West and hand bombers their 4th loss, also win the season series.
