Blue Bombers Notes

JIM BENDER -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 7:40 AM ET

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"He definitely has some special things about him. Just watch his mannerisms when he runs a route. He'll look like he's going to do something and, just with his eyes, he'll sell a guy. He's good."

--- Bombers head coach Doug Berry on veteran SB Milt Stegall

STAR OF THE DAY

WR Arjei Franklin was simply outstanding and no, we are not saying this just because he is providing the Sun with his own Deep Thoughts on a daily basis. Franklin made circus catch after circus catch all day long, although he did drop one catchable pass. Berry also singled out WR Andrae Thurman for praise ... Honourable mentions to SBs Jamie Stoddard and Milt Stegall, as well as QB Kevin Glenn (again). Berry also raved about DB Gabriel Fulbright, who picked off a pair of ill-advised Brad Banks passes, and LB Adrian Baird. Honourable mentions go to DBs Kelly Malveaux and Santino Hall.

CATCH OF THE DAY

WR Arjei Franklin made a leaping grab of a Mike Quinn toss on the sidelines, just managing to stay in bounds. That edged out a couple of nice catches by Thurman, as well as another sliding catch by SB Jamie Stoddard.

SMACK OF THE DAY

We missed the identity of his victim but a crack-back block by OL Aaron Fiacconi, freeing QB Kevin Glenn on a scramble, drew a rise from his teammates.
