WINNIPEG —Making his first CFL start in over two years, veteran backup Jarious
Jackson filled in admirably for the Argonauts. John Skelton Womens Jersey . Jackson ran for
one touchdown and passed for another as Toronto scored 21 unanswered points in
the first quarter Saturday to defeat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 29-10. “Im really
proud of him, he did a great job,” Argos coach Scott Milanovich said of Jackson,
who was making his first start since Ricky Ray went down last week in Montreal.
“By the time we got to the fourth quarter we had it pretty well under control
and Jarious just managed the clock at that point.” Jackson, who finished
17-for-28 and 155 yards passing, was reticent about taking too much credit. “Im
definitely happy about the win but theres a lot of things I can improve on and
get better at,” he said. “This is one to grow on.” The Argos (7-6) snapped a
two-game losing streak but for the Bombers (3-10), it was a crushing loss. They
failed to break a pattern that has seen them unable to win back-to-back games
all season and this loss seemed to deal a near-fatal blow to any hope of a
playoff shot. And to top it off, they lost starting quarterback Buck Pierce for
half the game after a helmet hit to the chin. Coach Tim Burke couldnt rule out
the possibility of a concussion, only two games into Pierces return from a foot
injury in July. “Late in the second quarter he developed a headache,” said
Burke. “I think all of us here would have a headache if we got drilled in the
chin by a helmet. For precautionary purposes we took him out of the game,
because you dont know if that means its more severe than just a headache.” The
first quarter pretty well sealed Winnipegs fate. The Argos had possession of the
ball for 12:28 to just 2:32 for Winnipeg. The Argos also had to thank the
Bombers and the officials for the three penalties that kept Torontos first drive
alive on the Winnipeg goal line. The Bombers werent happy about some of the
calls. Burke stayed mum: “You know if I were to say it was unjustified Id get
fined, so Ill leave it at that.” Defensive back Johnathan Hefney, however, was a
little more direct. “It was small petty calls but at the same time we kept on
fighting and just tried to forget about what they called on the first drive,” he
said. A pass interference call on a ball that was nowhere near the intended
receiver was just one example. “In my mind they were (bad). They gave them a
touchdown.” Jackson finally ran it over just past the seven-minute mark to
conclude a 15-play drive that occupied half the quarter. Burke said in the end,
fumbles, dropped passes and turnovers cost Winnipeg the game. “We cant drop
balls when we have guys wide open and the balls delivered to them. . . . We did
have way too many turnovers. “I think we were in scoring position several times
and four times we turned the ball over.” Marcus Ball intercepted a Buck Pierce
pass less than two minutes after the Argos first touchdown to make it 14-0. The
Bombers thought they had returned the favour on a 67-yard fumble return by Kenny
Mainor, but even though the convert was kicked the play was reviewed and
Jacksons bobble was ruled an incomplete pass. That hit that knocked Pierce from
the game came from Brandon Isaac and earned a roughing the passer call. Pierce
left the field at the end of the quarter. Joey Elliott came in for a few plays
before Pierce was able to return, although he would leave again later. The
Bombers were more successful in the second quarter, picking up a touchdown on
Pierces 20-yard pass to Terrence Edwards and a 20-yard field goal from Justin
Palardy. But the Argos picked up another three points from Swayze Waters to make
it 24-10 at the half. He added another in the third as Elliott replaced Pierce
for the rest of the game. Toronto added a couple of singles in the fourth. The
Bombers best drives ended when Elliotts passes into the endzone were intercepted
twice, the last with no time left on the clock. “Offensively we didnt play very
well,” Elliot said. “We put ourselves in a hole in the first half. Weve been a
better team playing in front. We dont like to play behind offensively. We like
to establish the run. During the second half we got pass happy.” Elliott
completed 20 out of 30 passes for 173 yards but he also threw three
interceptions. He refused to write off their playoff hopes just yet. “Youve got
to keep going. You never know. You can only take care of your team and your
games. Notes: Toronto receiver/returner Chad Owens passed the 3,000 all-purpose
yards mark for the third time in three years. Larry Fitzgerald Official Jersey .J. —

needing surgery on his left wrist. He hit .279 in 886 at-bats this year with the
