Team history

The beginning

The first football team in Winnipeg was formed in 1880, and was called the Winnipeg Football Club. On June 10, 1930, they amalgamated with all the other teams in the Manitoba Rugby Football Union to create the Winnipegs.


1935 Grey Cup

Western teams had been to the Grey Cup game 10 times since 1909, but they had always gone home empty handed. It was clear in those days that the East was much more powerful, outscoring their opponents 236–29 in these games.


On December 7, 1935, the Winnipegs got their first shot at winning the Grey Cup. The game was being held in Hamilton, with the home-town Tiger-Cats being their opponent. It was a rainy day at Hamilton Amateur Athletic Association Grounds, with 6,405 fans in attendance.


Winnipeg was up 5–0 before many fans knew what was happening. After returning the opening kickoff to the Hamilton 15-yard line, Winnipeg scored quickly on a Bob Fritz pass to Bud Marquardt to get the early lead. After scoring another touchdown, Winnipeg went into halftime up 12–4. Their lead was soon cut to two points in the second half after Hamilton scored a touchdown of their own.


Then, standing deep in his end zone, Winnipeg's RB/KR Fritz Hanson caught the kickoff, and after a few moves and a few missed tackles, was on his way to a touchdown. Fritz Hanson (born July 13, 1914 in Perham, Minnesota) was a Canadian Football League player for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Calgary Stampeders. ...


The final score was Winnipeg 18, Hamilton 12. With that, Winnipeg had become the first team from Western Canada to win a Grey Cup.


The Blue Bombers

In 1936, during a game against the University of North Dakota, Winnipeg Tribune sports writer Vince Leah remarked "these are the Blue Bombers of Western football". This phrase was referring to then heavyweight champion Joe Louis, known as the Brown Bomber. From that day forward the team has been known as the Blue Bombers.

Early days of glory

From 1936 to 1949, the Bombers won the right to compete for the Grey Cup 9 times (1937, 1938, 1939, 1941, 1942, 1943 and 1945). Of these appearances, Winnipeg won only twice, in 1939 over the Ottawa Rough Riders and again in their 1941 rematch. The Ottawa Rough Riders were a Canadian Football League team based in Ottawa, Ontario. ...


The Jack Jacobs era

"Indian" Jack Jacobs
"Indian" Jack Jacobs

Jack Jacobs, known as Indian Jack, was a Creek quarterback from Oklahoma. He came to the Bombers in 1950 after a successful career in the United States. He led the Bombers to two Grey Cup appearances, losing both. His exciting style of play and extreme talent increased ticket sales and overall awareness and popularity of the club. The revenue the Bombers were getting from their newfound popularity was enough to convince them to move from the small outdated Osborne Stadium to the new Winnipeg Stadium (now known as Canad Inns Stadium). Jacobs was so well liked that the fans even referred to the new stadium as “The House that Jack Built”. Jacobs retired in 1954 to become a talent scout for the team.

Bud Grant joined the team in 1953 after a two year stint with the Philadelphia Eagles, as one of numerous NFL players lured to Canada during the first part of the decade for then better salaries. After a four-year career as a receiver, then at the time called an offensive end, he accepted the position of head coach of the Bombers in 1957. Grant went on to coach the team for the next ten years before becoming the head coach of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

During Grant’s tenure as head coach the Bombers welcomed the likes of Ken Ploen, Leo Lewis, Ernie Pitts and Ed Kotowich to the team. The Bombers competed in six Grey Cup games during Grant's tenure, winning four (1958, 1959, 1961, and 1962). In 1961 the Bombers won 21–14 over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the first Grey Cup game to go into overtime. The Bombers and Ticats met again in the 1962 Grey Cup, with the game being postponed with 9:29 left in the fourth quarter due to zero visibility in the famous “Fog Bowl”. The game resumed the next morning with the Bombers winning 28-27. Ken Ploen was a quarterback for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Canadian Football League (CFL) from 1957-1967, during which time he lead the Blue Bombers to six Grey Cup appearances, including four victories. ...

During the second half of the 1960s the Bombers domination gave away to lean years, with four seasons of double digits in the loss column. The team bounced back in the early 1970s with the likes of quarterback Don Jonas, runningback Mack Herron, wide receivers Jim Thorpe and Bob LaRose. The team finished first in the Western Conference in 1972, the first time it had done so since 1962. However it also marks the last time the team has finished first in the West. The team struggled for a few more seasons and then became one of the stronger teams in the West, but usually behind the powerhouse Edmonton Eskimos. The Edmonton Eskimos are a Canadian Football League team based in Edmonton, Alberta. ...


The Cal Murphy era

In 1983 Cal Murphy was hired to be the new head coach of the Blue Bombers. Almost immediately, Murphy set the tone for his career with the Bombers by trading popular QB Dieter Brock to Hamilton in exchange for lesser-known QB Tom Clements. Trading Brock turned out to be a wise decision, with Clements leading the Bombers to crushing victory in the 1984 Grey Cup, coincidently over the Brock-led Tiger-Cats. This was Winnipeg's first Grey Cup in 22 years. Murphy was named coach of the year in both 1983 and 1984.

In 1987 Murphy stepped down as head coach to become the team general manger, with assistant coach Mike Riley (son of former Winnipeg coach Bud Riley) taking over head coaching duties. Riley's teams won the Grey Cup in both 1988 and 1990, garnering Riley the coach of the year award both seasons. Mike Riley (b. ... Edward “Bud” Riley (Born 1925) is a former football coach with the Idaho Vandals, Oregon State Beavers, and in the Canadian Football League. ...


After Riley left, Darryl Rogers and Urban Bowman each helmed the team for a season until 1993, when Murphy took over head coaching duties again. Murphy went on to lead the team to a total of five Grey Cup appearances, winning in 1984, 1988 and 1990. He left the club after the 1996 season, having spent 14 years with the team. Later, he would coach the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1999. Darryl Rogers was an American football coach. ...

The Milt Stegall era

Milt Stegall joined the Bombers in 1995 after an unimpressive 3-year career with the Cincinnati Bengals, and played in the Bombers' final six games of the 1995 season, racking up 469 receiving yards. In 1996 Stegall set a new league record for average gain per reception at 26.5 yards on 61 catches, including 14 touchdowns. Following a brief return to the NFL, Stegall has remained the team's primary receiver.

In 1999 the Bombers acquired Khari Jones from the BC Lions. Together Stegall and Jones brought the Bombers back to prominence, with Jones being the CFL most outstanding player in 2001, and Stegall getting the honour in 2002. Charles Roberts joined them in 2001, a year which the Bombers went to the Grey Cup, which they eventually lost to the Calgary Stampeders. The team was a powerhouse during this period, being one of the best teams in the league from 2001 until 2003.

For the defunct hockey team, see Calgary Stampeders (hockey) The Calgary Stampeders are a Canadian Football League team based in Calgary, Alberta. ...


Midway through the 2004 season Jones was traded to the Calgary Stampeders, with backup QB Kevin Glenn taking over the starting duties. Glenn led the team to two mediocre seasons after the trade. Kevin Glenn (born June 12, 1979, in Detroit, Michigan) is a Canadian Football League quarterback for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. ...


With the offensive core of Stegall and Roberts still intact, Glenn led the Bombers back to respectability in 2006, making their first playoff appearance in two years. The Bombers lost their first game in the playoffs, but optimism going into the 2007 was higher than ever. A big turning point in the 2006 season was the addition of former Saskatchewan Roughrider Derrick Armstrong, the heir apparent to Stegall. The 2006 CFL season is the 53rd season of modern Canadian professional football and the 49th official league season. ...


The 2007 CFL season was in some ways the year of Milt Stegall: he broke the career CFL touchdown record and fell just short of overtaking the career receiving yards record held by Allen Pitts. The 2007 season was also likely be Stegall’s last, as he was 37 years old and had been contemplating retirement for the previous two seasons. The 2007 Grey Cup game was played between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the first time the two prairie teams met for the championship, and although Milt Stegall was arguably again one of the better receivers of the game, Winnipeg was defeated by the Saskatchewan Roughriders 23–19 in the Rogers Centre in Toronto despite the fact that the Roughriders star receiver had torn his anterior cruciate ligament in that season's banjo bowl and was unable to play the rest of the season or participate in the 2008 pre-season, the riders' premiere running back Wes Cates played on a broken foot, and their secondary fullback Chris Szarka had amputated his thumb and fore-finger a month before at his home using a bandsaw; Slotbacks Andy Fantuz and DJ Flick filled the leadership and talent rolls vacated by Dominguez, while Wes Cates simply shot morphine into his foot before the game and at halftime and played like the all-star he'd been all year. The 2007 CFL season will be the 54th season of modern Canadian professional football. ...

As of January 31st , 2008, Milt Stegall announced that he would be returning for yet one more year. He signed a one year contract for $200,000 on the basis of the fact his wife wanted to have their next child in Winnipeg, and the fact that they were in line to be a contender for the Grey Cup. He took a $50,000 pay cut, and is 159 yards away from breaking Allen Pitts all time receiving yards record.

During the Blue Bombers' early years the team played at Osborne Stadium, a small stadium near the Manitoba Legislative Buildings. The fast passing-dominated play of Bombers quarterback Jack Jacobs dramatically increased attendance at Blue Bombers games and precipitated the need for a new, larger stadium. Winnipeg Stadium was built in the former city of St. James, west of Winnipeg, and the Blue Bombers began play there in 1953. The Blue Bombers continue to play at the stadium, though it has gone through significant changes over the years and is now known as Canad Inns Stadium.

Trivia

  • Despite Winnipeg's being a western Canadian city, the Blue Bombers have played many seasons (1987 to 1994, 1997 to 2001 and 2006 to present) in the Eastern Division to keep the number of teams in each division somewhat equal, with five switches total since 1987. With the suspension of the Ottawa Renegades team for the 2006 season, the Blue Bombers returned to the Eastern Division for at least the 2006 and 2007 seasons.
  • The only current CFL city whose team has never played Winnipeg for the championship is Montreal.
  • Labatt Blue, a widely-known beer in Canada, was named after the Blue Bombers.[1]
  • The Bombers are the only team that has won every award (see Category:Canadian Football League trophies and awards for list of trophies) in the CFL.

  • In 1981 wide receiver Eugene Goodlow became the first CFL played to reach the century mark in receptions in a season. Goodlow caught 100 passes for 1,494 yards and 14 touchdowns.
