How do we put this gently?
Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Doug Berry wants one of his five quarterbacks to fall flat on his face so he can hurry up and make a decision already.
There are too many pivots and not enough reps in training camp right now, and Berry would like to trim one of Kevin Glenn's understudies: Ryan Dinwiddie, Brad Banks, Justin Holland or Matt Bohnet.
"I'm hoping something happens there, where guys just start really playing well or somebody just has two bad days in a row," Berry said. "Not that I wish that on anybody, but it's gotta happen.
"One way or another, we can't continue to share all these reps. In order to be good at quarterback you gotta get 'em."
Expect Berry to make his decision either today or tomorrow.
ANT ON THE MOVE: When Anthony Malbrough came into the CFL with the Calgary Stampeders in 2002, they wanted him to play defensive halfback.
He was so good at it that he's been stuck at the position ever since. Now, in his third season with the Bombers, he's going back to his natural position of cornerback.
"I have no problem with playing halfback or corner, but corner is something that I've always played though, so I feel comfortable back out there," Malbrough said. "I still have to work on a few things technique-wise because I've been playing halfback so long, but it's not a major adjustment."
Malbrough is making the move to the corner because the Bombers want to use free-agent acquisition Davin Bush at halfback.
"I'm out there playing off my ability, and I'm working on my technique and getting it down. That's what training camp is for," he said. "But once I get my technique back and get everything down and get my eyes correct and everything ... oh, man, the sky's the limit."
CRAFTY VET: Linebacker Corey Jenkins had an interception in both of Sunday's practices and another one in yesterday's first session, so he was letting everyone know about his prowess in the locker-room before the second workout.
That's when slotback Milt Stegall piped up and challenged Jenkins to a bet. If Jenkins got another pick in the second practice, Stegall would do 50 pushups. Jenkins would have to do the same if he didn't manage an interception.
And wouldn't you know it? There was Jenkins on the sideline after practice, doing his 50 pushups while Stegall watched.
Despite their wager, Stegall is already a member of the Corey Jenkins Fan Club.
"He's tough," Stegall said. "He can run. He's all over the place."
LATE HITS: Players earning praise from Berry yesterday were DB Davin Bush, CB Anthony Malbrough, DB Kelly Malveaux, LB Kai Parham, LB Corey Jenkins, LB Barrin Simpson, WR Terrence Edwards, WR O'Neil Wilson, SB Milt Stegall, SB Derick Armstrong and SB Arjei Franklin ... Winnipeg Goldeyes slugger Jimmy Hurst and injured pitcher Bobby Madritsch were spectators at practice yesterday. Hurst knows Jenkins from their baseball days together ... The injury bug continues to bite. WR Adam Eckert dislocated a finger and is likely out for at least a week, while DB Chijioke Onyenegecha has a groin problem and is day-to-day. They join DE Shawn Maybe (arm), FB Neil Fulgueras (hamstring), OL Val St. Germain (back) and WR Jeff Keegan (knee) on the sidelines ... Camp continues today with practices at 8 a.m. and 10:40 a.m.
