, Last Updated: 11:17 AM ET

A statistical analysis of the Sun's annual You Be The Boss survey:

- The results for first-year head coach Doug Berry were 93% 'keep' and 7% 'punt.' Coincidentally, Jim Daley's stats last year were 7% 'keep' and 93% 'punt.'

- GM Brendan Taman's approval rating skyrocketed. He had 50% support last year, but now he's basking in the glow of 70%.

- Still, only 62% believe giving Taman a contract extension in July was a good move.

- President and CEO Lyle Bauer has the same approval rating -- 83% -- as last year.

- Running back Charles Roberts, wide receiver Derick Armstrong and defensive end Gavin Walls all received a whopping 99% support.

- Defensive tackle Doug Brown, defensive end Tom Canada, linebacker Barrin Simpson, defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall and slotback Milt Stegall all had at least 95% support.

- Third-string quarterback Ryan Dinwiddie appeared in one game this season but received the least support (25%).

- 74% of last year's respondents wanted to keep starting QB Kevin Glenn. This year it's down to 67%.

- In addition, 78% believe the Bombers need to get an experienced No. 1 quarterback this off-season. Several wrote in the "comments" section Glenn should stay with the team, but only as a backup.

- Not signing QB Khari Jones as backup help in August was the issue that divided Bomber Nation the most. The majority (58%) believe not re-signing Jones was a smart move, while 42% believe the Bombers should have grabbed him.

- Of the 49 players in the "Keep" or "Punt" section, the majority of fans want 44 of them to remain with the club in 2007. That is up from last year, when the majority wanted to keep 28 of 39.

- Of 11 players fans wanted gone last year, three -- kicker Troy Westwood, linebacker Neil McKinlay and safety Shawn Gallant -- are still with the team. Westwood is still on the outs with fans this year, but McKinlay (66%) and Gallant (56%) are back in their good books.

- Only 24% believe the Bombers should be privately owned, but 31% said they don't care. The club should stay community owned got the most votes at 45%.
