SOME of the areas of concern for the Bombers offence, other than the specifics mentioned by head coach Tim Burke on Monday:

  • The Bombers can't seem to move the ball when it matters most. In the season-opening loss to Montreal, Winnipeg was outscored 14-zip in the fourth quarter and last Saturday managed only 48 yards in the second half against Hamilton.
  • The Bombers have surrendered 14 sacks in three games, highest in the CFL, despite redesigning the offence to protect the pivot.
  • Since the start of the 2011 season, a stretch of 41 games, a Bomber QB has thrown for over 300 yards just six times -- twice by Joey Elliott (406 and 335), twice by Pierce (363 and 312) and twice by Alex Brink (326 and 311). Just by comparison, Anthony Calvillo had 11 300-yard passing games last season alone and Ricky Ray did it eight times in his 14 starts a year ago.
  • Pierce's QB efficiency rating of 71.7 ranks seventh among the nine quarterbacks who have started games this year.
