Football coaches like to say the film doesn't lie.

Well, the numbers don't usually, either.

And a Winnipeg Blue Bombers offence trying to delete the memory of last season won't enjoy chewing on these from its season-opener, last Thursday: 11 first downs, just two along the ground; 38 yards rushing; 3.8 yards per carry; and, worst of all, five turnovers.

Actually, there's one other number that might set off an alarm bell or two: the Bombers, the kings of the two-and-out in 2012, had 12 more of them in losing 38-33 to Montreal.
