WINNIPEG--It's hard for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers not to start looking towards next season.
But they have one more chance Saturday to put a win on their record for 2012, after managing only five so far this season.
They have to beat the East-leading Montreal Alouettes to do it.
Backup Alex Brink is quarterbacking the Winnipeg offence and says he's anxious to get another chance to show what he can do.
Backup Adrian McPherson is in for Montreal quarterback Anthony Calvillo and glad for the rare opportunity to show more of his skills.
Like Brink for the Bombers, he normally handles short-yardage situations for the Alouettes but not much else if Calvillo is healthy.
