WINNIPEG -- With Ricky Ray sidelined, the Blue Bombers know they have a better shot at building on their last win when the Toronto Argonauts visit Winnipeg Saturday.
"Any time you go to the backup quarterback, I mean there's a reason why one guy's No. 1 and one guy's No. 2, so obviously that bodes well for us in that respect," coach Tim Burke said Tuesday after practice.
But Burke and other Bombers also know they can't take Argos backup pivot Jarious Jackson too lightly if they hope to start a push for the playoffs.
"He's an experienced quarterback and he's got a great arm and he can run around," says Burke, who has faced Jackson both in the CFL and when the two were in the U.S. college system.
"My first experience with him was when I was at Purdue and he was the quarterback at Notre Dame and he was an option quarterback at that time, so that shows you how much he can run."
