The Bombers defense of 11 was miles better than the 12 Eskies, IMO. The Eskies have a great D, but it is all BB or SSK cast-offs, plus a very few Esk players. It is probably the best D in the league, but it is nowhere near the best of all-time, don't kid yourself. They will need the O to contribute somewhat if they want to be a threat and so long as ultimate choke Jyles is at the controls they will not contribute when it is needed.

If EDM misses playoffs it will lay right at the footsteps of the guy who CANNOT finish games, Steven Jyles.
