WINNIPEG - Max Hall is a better passer, while Chase Clement is going to have to run around a little.

That’s the un-expert opinion from this corner on the two new quarterbacks in the Blue Bomber stable, after Day 1 of mini-camp, Wednesday.

Actually, that was also the general assessment from the in-house quarterback expert, Bombers offensive co-ordinator Gary Crowton.

“Max, you’re going to see him as a real accurate passer early,” Crowton said after a workout at the indoor soccer complex down at the U of M. “And Chase... in the game situations you’ll see his mobility more than you will (see him) just out there throwing the ball around.”

How much we’ll actually see of either one in the coming months, of course, depends on the health and performance of starter Buck Pierce and projected No. 2 Justin Goltz.

What’s becoming crystal clear is how much of this team’s fate, short- and long-term, rests in the hands of Crowton.
