You might say Doug Berry was a mite pleased with his starting quarterback on Thursday.

Kevin Glenn completed 21 of 24 passes for 258 yards and one touchdown during Winnipeg's 20-18 victory over the Alouettes in Montreal.

"I'm just going to say 21 of 24 says a lot," said the Blue Bombers head coach, who looked up Glenn's 87.5 passing percentage in the CFL record book during yesterday's flight home from Montreal. "This would tie him for fifth in the CFL history."

Glenn, who is tied with Joe Paopao, Ricky Ray and Jason Maas, also established the club record for efficiency.

Montreal quarterback Anthony Calvillo was no slouch, either. He completed 33 of 38 passes for 354 yards and one TD, for 86.8%.

"Calvillo's numbers would put him around No. 10," Berry said.

TOP-10 PERFORMANCES

"So, these are the two top 10 performances in terms of completions (of all time). I mean, think about it -- 54 for 62 in this game ... It's just incredible."

And no, now that you mention it, it was not a good night for the respective secondaries.

By the way, Casey Printers holds the CFL record with a 90.9%. Danny McManus and Tom Wilkinson are tied for second at 90.5% with Maas in fourth at 90.0%.

Glenn passed the Bomber record of 87.2% held by Dieter Brock, still good enough for ninth place on the CFL's all-time list.
