WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Blue Bombers coach Mike OShea knows exactly what the Toronto Argonauts and quarterback Ricky Ray can do to an opponent and Ray isnt all the Bombers have to worry about when they meet Thursday. "Theyve got a lot of weapons," said OShea, Torontos former special teams co-ordinator until he got the top coaching job in Winnipeg. Catch all the action on TSN and TSN 1050 starting at 8:30pm et/5:30pm pt, with pre- and post-game coverage available on TSN 1050 and TSN 1290. "It just so happens that the ball always travels through Ricky first. But, obviously, Im quite familiar with all the guys they have and what they can do offensively." The Bombers play the Argos in the CFL opener at Investors Group Field. It kicks off an expanded season with the addition of the Ottawa Redblacks to the CFL East this year and the return of the Bombers to the CFL West. The Bombers made a lot of changes between seasons and likely arent finished. The Argos have also made changes, although on offence coach Scott Milanovich says theyre ready to go. "I expect us not to miss a beat offensively," he said after the Argos landed Wednesday. "Our expectations are pretty high, weve got a lot of players returning," agreed Ray. "Youve still got to do it on game day." But he also said with little pre-season experience, he expects to make a few mistakes. The Toronto defence sounds more like a work in progress under the guidance of former Bomber head coach Tim Burke, now back in a more familiar role as defensive co-ordinator. "Well have a good defence, I think its going to take us some time," Burke said. The Bombers have their own holes to fill. The depth chart for Thursdays game includes six players at middle linebacker, where they lost Henoc Muamba to the NFL. On Wednesday, they added Canadian offensive lineman Gord Hinse, who played in Edmonton last season, although he immediately went on the six-game injured list. Starting well is important to OShea. "Wed like to come out there and be as physical as we can and set a standard, set up a minimum standard for us and keep building from there," said OShea. "Were going our there to win and set a pace for the season." If the Bombers want to see how rookie starting quarterback Drew Willy performs under pressure, they couldnt ask for a better opponent. Ray has thrown 3,780 completed passes for 251 touchdowns and three Grey Cups over 11 seasons in the league with Edmonton and Toronto. "Sometimes I cant believe Im going into my 12th year," he said Wednesday. Willy has completed just 101 for nine touchdowns and has only four starts in his prior two seasons as a backup in Regina. The Bombers are staking a lot on Willy as they try to appease fans turned off by recent struggles, while the Argos want to get back to the Grey Cup after stumbling in last years East final. Willy says keeping Ray off the field as much as possible is going to be a key for the Bombers Thursday. "We definitely need to be efficient," he said of the offence. "We need to make sure our drives take some time." Oh, and scoring touchdowns rather than field goals would also be good, he noted. One thing Willy brings to the table is durability. He says he has only missed two games due to injury in his career, a hand injury in practice that cost him two games when he was in his sophomore career at the University of Buffalo. The Argos brought rookie running back and Winnipeg native Anthony Coombs along. He sits third on their depth chart behind imports Curtis Steele and Jeremiah Johnson. "This time its for keeps so Im exited to be out there," said Coombs, who also saw action in their exhibition game in Winnipeg. Veteran Winnipeg offensive lineman Glenn January couldnt promise a win but he did promise a lot of effort come Thursday night "I think were going to be a passionate team and were going to be a well-prepared team," he said. "If we go out there and we do stumble and dont get the win, its not the end of the world. Its an 18-game season." The Argonauts finished 11-7 in the regular season last year but then fell to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the East final. Hamilton went to the Grey Cup but lost to the Saskatchewan Roughriders at home in Regina. "Right now were an average football team. We have a potential to be more than that," said Milanovich. After a 3-15 season that cost Burke his job, the Bombers were a long way from average last year. The Argos beat the Bombers all three times last season and also beat them in their first pre-season game this year, 24-22. Boston Celtics Jerseys .

Smith, who turned 35 Tuesday, has recovered from last years shoulder injury.Your eyes go to him as youre watching the game, San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday. Theres just so much energy and aggressiveness, the way he plays the game. He always looks good to me.After four games, Smith is on pace for 12 sacks and 100 tackles.I can use my left arm this year a€” thats a plus, Smith said. I feel good enough with where Im at and what Im doing. Lets keep on trucking.Smith helps keep the 49ers defensive front running smoothly, which often means a choppy road for running backs. San Francisco ranks second in rushing defence, first in the NFC, heading into Sundays game against Kansas City.We just go out, try to compete and do what we do as a unit, Smith said. There are a lot of great running backs and a lot of great lines. We have another big challenge in front of us.Without Aldon Smith in the lineup a€” he has five games remaining on his suspension a€” Justin has managed to keep things together as much with his brain as with his brawn.Ian (Williams) is playing well. Glenn (Dorsey) is playing well, Smith said. Teams have been trying to rrun right at Ian, but hes strong at the point and fast at pass rushing.dddddddddddd You can always pass rush better. Week in and week out, you look to take advantage of the protection were getting.Smith left Missouri after setting single-season school records for sacks (11) and tackles for a loss (24). As a rookie with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2001, he recorded 8 1-2 sacks, a career high he matched in 2010 with the 49ers.Hes currently ranked eighth among active sacks leaders, although numbers cant totally measure his value. Hes also a leader on the field and in the locker room. Teammates say he talks to everybody and lightens up tense moments.If I can get warmed up and moving around, he said, I feel fine.NOTES: OL Jonathan Martin, who also played for Harbaugh at Stanford, was asked about Deion Sanders latest comments about the rift in the 49ers locker room. My reality, day to day, is that this is one of the strongest locker rooms Ive been around, he said. .TE Vernon Davis said theres a small chance he will be able to play Sunday, though he did not practice Friday. Hes listed as questionable along with CB Tramaine Brock (toe), T Anthony Davis (knee) TE Vance McDonald (knee), S Eric Reid (hamstring) and NT Ian Williams (ankle). . C Marcus Martin (knee) is doubtful, while S Antoine Bethea (ankle), WR Michael Crabtree (foot), RB Frank Gore (back), DE Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder) and P Andy Lee (ankle) are probable.
