Kerry Joseph Ready to Face Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday with New Team

Chris AllenSenior Analyst IJune 25, 2008

The Toronto Argonauts definitely have expectations fo their new QB Kerry Joseph. However, Josephs expectations seem to be beating himself. Joseph was the QB of the Grey Cup winning Saskatchewan Roughriders, and a QB who last year, led his team to their first home playoff game in over 30 years. He also won the CFL's Most Outstanding Player award last year.

Joseph seems ready to face the Bombers on Friday for the first time with a new team. It will be the first time that Joseph has faced the Bombers since defeating them in the Grey Cup last year.

"I know a lot is being expected of me," Joseph said. "I do feel I still have to prove I can continue to win."

The Blue Bombers are also looking to win this Friday, despite the setback of losing new punter Duncan O'Mahony to a broken toe. This also means a gain of responsibilities for rookie Alexis Serna, who must now handle the kicking and punting jobs, which may prove fatal to a rookie in his first CFL game.

Both teams will look to win at the Canad Inns Stadium on Friday night. Start time for the game is 7 PM Central time.
