WINNIPEG -- It only took about 50 minutes for the 27,039 on hand at Canad Inns Stadium to begin chanting Joey Elliott's name.
Elliott, making his first start since Week 19 of the 2010 season, completed 33 passes for 406 yards and one touchdown, en-route to leading the Blue Bombers to a 32-25 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The crowd began yelling "Joey! Joey! Joey!" following Elliott's touchdown pass to Chris Matthews to give the Bombers a late-game lead.
"I was glad to get the ball,'' Elliott said of his noticeably stronger second-half performance. "As a quarterback, in the second half, once you kind of figure what they're doing, you kind of what to get down the field and get in the groove.''
