A year of disappointment

Blue and Golden

At the beginning of the 2011 season, there wasn’t an unlikelier team to reach the Grey Cup than the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. They finished the 2010 season in last place with a frustrating 4-14 record (losing nine games by four points or less) after losing their starting quarterback for the season with a dislocated elbow […]

Bombers playoff bound

Coming off a season with a 4-14 record and a last place finish in the East, even those who bleed Blue and Gold could not have imagined the success the Winnipeg Blue Bombers would have in Paul LaPolice’s second season as head coach. Instead of gutting the roster after the woeful product of the 2010 […]
