Drew Willy

Winnipeg got out to a 16 to nil lead on the defending CFL champions but let the game slip away. The Biggest mistake came with time running out in the 4th and the Bombers down by 1.

The worst mistake occurred with 1:27 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Bombers on the Stampeders 45 yard line. It was second-and-four, but Willy let the play clock expire. In the last three minutes of a half, that results in the loss of down.

The CBC sums up the loss to Calgary best.

There are two ways to approach this. One, the Bombers built up an early 16-point lead then only found another nine points the rest of the way. Or, Big Blue gave the defending champs a run for their money on the road, just falling short at the end. Late in the season, a loss is a loss, but this early it could be a big confidence boost. Drew Willy was strong (22-of-27, 289 yards) with two TDs and a pick. Four turnovers killed them, plus a blocked punt that went the other way for a TD.

Ernest Jackson

Jackson and the REDBLACKS looked awesome to start the year but have cooled off recently.

Much like their win-loss record, the Ottawa Redblacks have been a mix of good and bad in the first quarter of the CFL season.

Natey Adjei

Some in Western New York may have been able to hear this one live on the radio but if not here is Natey Adjei with Mike Hogan.
