WINNIPEG - The only thing left to do now, really, is rank the losses and wait patiently for this disastrous season to end. Nobody is going to walk through that door and save this joke of a campaign.

Friday night's 53-17 embarrassment at the hands of the B.C. Lions is up there, just like last week's choke job against the Eskimos, but for completely different reasons.

The Bombers gave up three defensive touchdowns in the first half alone, and they ended up producing one of their most laughable losses of the season that dropped their record to 2-11.

The Bombers will play on Saturday in Calgary, where they've lost 10 in a row to the Stampeders dating back to 2002. The Lions improved to 9-4 and clinched a playoff berth.

Winnipeg turned the ball over seven times on Friday night in front of an announced crowd of 29,457, bringing their league-leading total to 48, and B.C. turned that into 34 points. They used two quarterbacks, Max Hall and Jason Boltus, who threw three interceptions and fumbled once.
