The Winnipeg Blue Bombers showed off a lot of new faces — both on the field and sidelines — as they fell 24-22 at home in a pre-season game against the Toronto Argonauts.

The Bombers sampled all four of their quarterbacks, new kickers, new running backs, some new receivers, and a few new D-men as they reconstruct after last year's disappointing 3-15 campaign.

Since then, they also have a new coach, new general manager and new CEO.

The task ahead is not only to rebuild the team, but reach out to fans who have given up on a team that is just 9-27 in the past two seasons.
