WINNIPEG - They’re the Blue Bombers’ three prized off-season acquisitions, the faces of a bold new regime intent on proving things are going to be different around here.

Quarterback Drew Willy, receiver Nick Moore and defensive back Korey Banks are in town to drum up some publicity, along with returning receiver Cory Watson.

And it doesn’t take long to see why the Bombers went after at least one of them.

Banks, the former Lion and one of the CFL mouths that roar on a regular basis, grabbed the first set of leadership reins he could find and began pulling like the veteran influence he was brought in to be.

“It’s not about me,” the 34-year-old began. “It’s always going to be about the other guy beside me. If everybody has that attitude, anything’s possible.”

Banks has his work cut out for him.
