Missing Blink

You'd think with no Milt Stegall in the lineup it would have been all Charles Roberts, all the time last week in Toronto.

It didn't quite work out that way, as Roberts rushed only six times for seven yards and quarterback Kevin Glenn threw for a career-high 453 yards in a 31-23 loss to the Argos.

Blink wasn't doing a lot of talking this week, but the guys who pave the way for him sure are mad -- at themselves.

"It comes on our shoulders, and we gotta get it done up front," centre Obby Khan said. "If we don't get it done up front, there's going to be hell to pay next week. I'm dead serious.

"It's a sense of pride for the offensive line. If you can't rush for 100 yards, then it's garbage."

It used to be that the Bombers would win every game in which Roberts dashed for at least 100 yards. That hasn't always been the case recently, but they win more than they lose when Roberts hits the century mark.

It's all about a consistent attack, and Khan said it's important that his club find the running game to balance it all out.

"It's paramount. It's huge," Khan said. "We've been working on it all week, and we have to get it going. I don't know what happened last week, I don't know what happened the week before, but we have to get it going.

"We can't just rely on Kevin to throw 400 yards a game."
