When Max Hall and Chase Clement hit the field at Investors Group Field on Wednesday for the start of rookie camp, they will become (as far as we can tell) the 77th and 78th quarterbacks to be under contract with the Bombers since they last won a Grey Cup.

So no, the team's search for a winning quarterback isn't going too well. At least, that's the way it appears when you take a quick glance.

Look a little closer, however, and it's simply not true that the Bombers haven't developed a quarterback since they last won a CFL championship in 1990. It's true they haven't developed a Grey Cup-winning quarterback, but they have developed bona fide No. 1 pivots who would have won titles if it weren't for some bad bounces along the way.
