10 Plays that Made a Champion: #1 A hint of magic - Ed Tait

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers championship run last November is already folklore in these parts thanks to the compelling characters and storylines that were part of the heart-racing moments leading up the historic finish.

The story has already been told in book form - and, yes, that?s an obvious and shameless plug for our 'For the W: look back at the championship season', available at The Bomber Store.

Still, what often gets glossed over are the smaller moments that helped shape the big picture - those critical and timely plays that, collectively combined, make a champion, whether they come on offence, defence or special teams. Over the next few weeks, www.bluebombers.com will dig a little deeper at 10 signature plays from last fall?s run that, given the benefit of hindsight, were massive in the club?s 11th Grey Cup championship.

#1 - A HINT OF MAGIC

The Canadian Football League's official statistics report for Game #83 of the 2019 season simply lists it as play #121 - an eight-yard completion from Zach Collaros to Darvin Adams for a touchdown.

Yet, rewind to last October and the Blue Bombers' last regular season contest against the Calgary Stampeders and the Collaros-to-Adams touchdown is certainly bigger than what is spelled out in the black and white of the statistical summary.

It was a play that provided immediate hope in that moment, and a hint of the promise that was to come. And, besides being a play-of-the-year candidate, it also offered a glimpse of the different dimension Collaros could offer the Bombers' offence........

The rest of "10 Plays..." is here.
