NOTES FROM THE PRESS BOX PRIOR TO BANJO BOWL
Here are today’s scratches from the Bombers-Riders matchup:

-For Winnipeg, the four inactives are DB Brandon Stewart, OL Lorne Plante, new receiver Dudley Guice, Jr., and DE Riall Johnson. LB Barrin Simpson is on the one-game injured list.

-For Saskatchewan, the scratches are DL Michael Stadnyk, RB Hugh Charles, SB Jason Clermont and long-snapper Kevin Scott.

A couple of things we’ll be monitoring closely:
-Will Bomber fans be able to notice any potential impact of Manny Matsakis who, along with Charlie Carpenter, has been much more hands-on in the offensive game-planning this week?

-How will the Bombers counter, scheme-wise, to what the Riders did to shut down Fred Reid and the ground game on Labour Day?

-Will the Bombers blitz more, or show more variety in their defensive packages so as to prevent Rider QB Darian Durant from getting too comfortable?

-Will the Barrin Simpson soap opera have any visible effects on this team?

-And, finally, can the Bombers take advantage of a sold-out crowd for their first of six home games in the second half of the season?

-Ed Tait
