Last week's dramatic demolition by the Adelaide Crows left Essendon reeling and Bomber coach Matthew Knights under siege. With all quarters weighing into the debate, some fans and media were calling for his head, others for a game plan change. This week was renewal time for the Bomber squad.

Bomber fans were stunned into dismal silence for all but the opening few minutes. The demoralized team walked off to jeers and chants of "have some heart Essendon".
