Mike OShea is staying on message — completely 100 per-cent on message — as his 6-5 football club travels to Vancouver to face the 6-4 B. Oakland Raiders Jerseys .C. Lions in what will determine fourth place, and possibly the CFLs crossover playoff spot, in the ultra-competitive West Division. For the Winnipeg Blue Bombers it is always "one game at a time" with no individual contest meaning more than any other. But is that really the case for OSheas crew at this juncture? The Bombers enter Week 12 having lost four of their last five games and are facing a division opponent they need to put behind them in the standings as they enter their first bye week of the season. "Theres lots of football left," repeated Mike OShea when asked if Saturdays game will carry more weight in determining his teams playoff potential, or be a bigger game compared to the others. "It cant be." OK, lets take a step back then, coach. How about this just being a so-called four-point game in the West Division race — do you believe in that? "I can barely count to four." So, is that a no? "Yeah, thats a no." However you slice it, it remains a possibility that fifth-place B.C.s No. 1 quarterback Travis Lulay may miss the remainder of the season due to a re-injured shoulder, and third-place Saskatchewans starter Darian Durant the same following surgery this week on a torn tendon in his elbow. So does the Blue Bombers first-year head coach look at it as a chance to solidify his clubs spot in the standings before their bye week? "Theres no point in looking at it that way. Travis Lulay (started) one game, right? So Kevin Glenn has got them to where they are now. In reality, Kevin Glenn has been the starter. And we dont play Saskatchewan again until the playoffs, so theres nothing really we can do about that. So as a fan, will I watch the games and note how different it is for Saskatchewan, how they try to win games? Yeah, maybe I will. You know, were done with them now until the playoffs." The reality remains, five of Winnipegs final seven games are against Western opponents, including two of their last three against the league-leading 9-1 Calgary Stampeders. "Obviously all of the West games are very important. Not just (B.C.), but against everyone," said quarterback Drew Willy ahead of his teams second trip to Vancouver, where they emerged 23-6 victors back in Week 5. "Its just hard to say how the season is going to play out. I mean, theres a lot of football to be played, but obviously it is a big game just by the way the standings look right now. For sure." Oh, and about that second Winnipeg bye week? It doesnt come around until the Blue Bombers complete their 18-game regular season schedule — Week 20. NOTES: The Bombers defensive front took another major hit this week, as tackle Zach Anderson suffered a torn ACL in practice and will miss the remainder of the season. This comes after fellow defensive linemen Jason Vega and Mike Cornell suffered knee injuries in the Banjo Bowl that will keep them out of action for a few weeks alongside starter Kashawn Fraser who injured his knee in the Labour Day Classic... Just nine days will separate the practice roster signings of defensive linemen Marvin Booker and Willie Moseley and them playing in Saturdays game in Vancouver. Booker will start at end, while Canadian Ameet Pall, inked this past Wednesday, completes the trio of newcomers on the 46-man roster... The Blue Bombers did acquire a defensive lineman following the injury to Fraser in Regina when they sent fifth-year veteran DB Alex Suber to the Argonauts for Thaddeus Gibson, but the veteran of six NFL clubs has run into passport problems while visiting the U.S. during Torontos bye week. Gibson is expected to join his new teammates soon... Linebacker and tackle-demon Ian Wild (shoulder) will miss a consecutive week, so it will be another game of Ejiro Kuale and Abe Kromah sharing and splitting reps in the middle of the linebacker corps... Backup running back Paris Cotton has been placed on Winnipegs practice roster and his agent is rumoured to be shopping the explosive runner and kick returner, which means Canadian back Carl Volny is looking to be the No. 2 ball-carrier in Blue and Gold for the foreseeable future... Linebacker/defensive back Johnny Sears looks like hes closing in on a return from being out of the lineup since late July with a hamstring/quad injury... Winnipegs leading receiver Clarence Denmark was inked to a contract extension on Friday that will keep him in Blue and Gold through the 2016 season. The CFLs second-leading receiver this year (646 yards) also lead the Blue Bombers in receiving in his third season with the club in the quarterback-carousel season of 2013.
