Glenn 'magic' for Bombers

HAMILTON -- Kevin Glenn will have 28 family members and friends from Michigan in the Ivor Wynne Stadium stands tonight.

That total is nowhere near the 55 who came up on a bus for last October's game in Steel City.

It does not mean, however, that the love of Glenn is in decline. In fact, it's quite the opposite.

The man can do no wrong. He has thrown only nine incompletions in his last two games, and a few of those were dropped by receivers or tossed out of bounds.

"He sees it all, and when a quarterback can see it all it's magic," Bombers head coach Doug Berry said. "Not everybody can do that, and he's one of those guys that can."

Last night TSN analyst Chris Schultz called Glenn the No. 1 quarterback in the CFL right now. Berry said Glenn is "one of the main reasons we're at where we're at."

If you look up the definition of even-keel in the dictionary, Glenn's face will be staring right back at you. That helped him when he was learning the ropes of Berry's offence, and it's preventing him from getting a big head.

And when it was suggested yesterday that his performance in Winnipeg's 29-0 win over Hamilton last July was a turning point in his career, the league's passing leader merely shrugged.

"That's because you do more of the analysing," he said. "I just take every game as it is and try to get better each game. I couldn't tell you last year at this time ... that that was the turning point."

His apprehension to talk about himself may drive the media up the wall, but it just might be the reason why the Bombers are on top of the East Division. He's all about the team, and that's all he will talk about.

"I can tell you that this year, since the start of camp, as far as the locker-room, the players, myself ... it's just been a totally different mindset and atmosphere," he said. "You can feel and you can sense the confidence."
