It’s hardly a draft bible that anyone in the CFL adheres to or follows religiously.

Updating an earlier blog post, it's now all-but official: defensive end Phillip Hunt is leaving the Bombers to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The CFL will announce Wednesday details of how the Ottawa franchise will be stocked with players when it returns to the field in 2013.

Hard not to notice that there seems to be a great deal of hand-wringing – much of it justified – about the Bombers’ still vacant defensive co-ordinator position and the possible loss of D-line coach Richard Harris to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

It's really no surprise to those who follow the Canadian Football League, but it could impact the Bomber coaching staff nonetheless.

Now that Santa has delivered a new stadium for Bomber faithful, maybe 2011 will bring a championship to end the long drought.

Maybe it's because we're too old school, but it's a shame Shawn Gallant opted to 'announce' his retirement from football via Facebook.

Not surprisingly, Bomber defensive end Phillip Hunt is drawing interest from teams down south.

First things first, the CFL released today its December edition of the 2011 Canadian Draft rankings and that’s of particular interest to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who currently hold the first overall pick (but are said to be trying to deal to move down in the first round and grab another later pick).

There’s still a couple of months before the annual CFL free-agent talent feeding frenzy begins on Feb. 15th, but that won’t stop us from taking a look at some of the talent that might be available.

It doesn’t take long for gossip to spread in a small loop like the Canadian Football League.

The individual honours keep rolling in for some members of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

EDMONTON – It’s bleepin’ freezing here – and this from a guy from Winnipeg – which has me thinking the CFL should issue a warning to the two teams participating in the Grey Cup on Sunday.

The title is actually a line from a friend of mine, after I told him the Bombers were forced to use their third-stringer in Saturday’s game. The reference, of course, is Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. My friend – much like myself – automatically thought of the British band and Union Jack T-shirts with the sleeves cut off when he first heard the name. Seriously, he did. No F-F-Foolin.’

Now that Brock Ralph has been sent to the sidelines and Adarius Bowman is no longer with the Bombers, I decided to look at the receiving numbers put up by the club this season. I have no real motivation to do this – no real point to prove – I’m just a little curious as to what the figures look like now that two players who were expected to put up 1,000-yard seasons are no longer starting in River City.

OK. So the Bombers are officially in a position where they no longer control their own destiny. Playoff excitement is now in the hands of others, specifically the B.C. Lions and Edmonton Eskimos. The standings have the Bombers (4-11) a game behind the two West Division clubs (both at 5-10) but in reality, the local footballers are two games back, as they need to finish ahead of both the Leos and Eskies to claim the crossover spot (barring the unlikelihood of a tie in the remaining games). Here's what each team has left:

Bomber DB Jovon Johnson's 2007 Grey Cup ring — the one he picked up with the Saskatchewan Roughriders — has surfaced in an online auction.

Not sure if it was shocking or just plain reckless.

Perhaps I have this wrong, but I just can’t see how starting QB Alex Brink over QB Steven Jyles is anything but the Bombers giving up on the season and throwing Jyles under the bus in the process.

First off, kudos to the Bombers for their push this week to help bring attention to breast cancer.

VANCOUVER — Some last-minute thoughts before the Bombers and Lions meet in a critical contest with some serious playoff implications for the visitors:

That sound of relief you heard from the Polo Park area? The return of QB Steven Jyles to practice.

Jonathan Hefney touched down in Winnipeg this afternoon. His arrival was expected given he is still under contract with the Bombers and risked suspension if he didn’t report following his release from the Detroit Lions practice roster earlier this month.
