Defensive end Mike McAdoo will be the 75th player the Bombers have used this season when he steps onto the field Saturday afternoon against the Toronto Argonauts.

Teams usually have about 75 players in training camp, and that's no coincidence, folks. This season has become one big training camp for the Blue and Gold.

Sure, they're technically still alive for a playoff spot, but the chances of that happening are right up there with Adam Sandler taking home the best actor honour from the Academy Awards.

"The playoff picture was addressed a couple weeks ago, so they're all aware of where we are in the playoff hunt," head coach Tim Burke said. "We try not to look at the big picture but focus in on the game that we're playing this week."

The plan against the Argos will be to go with four defensive linemen, rotate them as much as possible and see what they have in McAdoo, a former member of the NFL's Baltimore Ravens.
