Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Jyles signed as a free agent with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on February 23, 2010, joining his former Saskatchewan offensive co-ordinator, Paul LaPolice, who had been hired as the Blue Bombers' head coach. It was initially thought that Jyles would have an excellent chance to be the starting quarterback for the team after they had released incumbent Michael Bishop, but two months later, the team announced that they had signed Buck Pierce, meaning Jyles would be relegated to backup duty.

Pierce started the 2010 season as the starter, but was injured in game 3, meaning that Jyles would get the next start, again against Edmonton. After winning his first game as a Bomber against Edmonton, he would lose his next two before Pierce returned from injury to start game 7 against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. However, Pierce was again injured in that game, so Jyles started the next game against Montreal. Pierce came back for the Labour Day Classic against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but, for his third consecutive start, was injured in the game. Jyles was declared the starter for the remainder of the season, but he himself was injured in week 17 against the Toronto Argonauts, effectively ending his season and the Bombers' playoff hopes that year.

Famous quotes containing the words bombers and/or blue:

    Suppose that humans happen to be so constructed that they desire the opportunity for freely undertaken productive work. Suppose that they want to be free from the meddling of technocrats and commissars, bankers and tycoons, mad bombers who engage in psychological tests of will with peasants defending their homes, behavioral scientists who can’t tell a pigeon from a poet, or anyone else who tries to wish freedom and dignity out of existence or beat them into oblivion.
    Noam Chomsky (b. 1928)

    Blue skies smiling at me
    Nothing but blue skies do I see.
    Irving Berlin (1888–1989)
