O. J. Brigance and Elfrid Payton danced in the backfield yesterday to a beat only they could hear.The celebration came in the middle of Baltimore's 57-10 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but it underscored a defensive effort that lasted for 60 minutes."

Since training camp opened five months ago, the Baltimore Stallions have talked about returning to the Grey Cup game to win the Canadian Football League championship that barely eluded them last year.Yesterday, the Stallions took the first postseason step toward that goal with a 36-21 victory over Winnipeg before 21,040, the smallest crowd in the franchise's two-year history.The sparse gathering got to see the Stallions show off the familiar weapons that have helped Baltimore (16-3) reel off 11 consecutive victories -- starting with running back Mike Pringle.

Matt Dunigan did it once; he can do it again.Pass for 713 yards? The mind recoils at the possibility; the senses numb. Statisticians get writer's cramp at the thought."

If No Excuses Jeans is looking for another spokesman, there were plenty of candidates in the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' locker room yesterday.Neither Winnipeg head coach Cal Murphy nor his players offered any excuses for the team's lackluster performance in yesterday's 57-10 loss to the Baltimore CFLs at Memorial Stadium."

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have been dragging their injured bodies around for most of the season, but at least they survived long enough to make it to the Canadian Football League playoffs.Not that Winnipeg figures to be around for long. Tomorrow at 1 p.m., the Blue Bombers face the Baltimore Stallions in the first round of the CFL playoffs at Memorial Stadium.The Stallions (15-3) had been angling for the postseason long before putting together a 10-game winning streak to end their regular season.

Three months ago, when they suffered a 43-7 blowout in Baltimore, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers looked nothing like a playoff team. Now, the Blue Bombers have gone through so many personnel changes they hardly resemble the team that began the 1995 season.Due to a combination of injuries, trades and free-agent signings, Winnipeg has dressed 75 players this year, or the equivalent of two active rosters. In Monday's 31-20 loss in Toronto, the Blue Bombers started the same 12 players on offense for the second straight game, the first time that has happened this year.

Maybe the Calgary Stampeders are not invincible after all.Granted, the Stampeders (13-1) remain the class of the Canadian Football League, with the Northern Division championship nearly in the bag. Their offense barely has missed a beat since quarterback Jeff Garcia took over seven weeks ago for Doug Flutie, whose season ended last month with elbow surgery. They are still on track to win 17 regular-season games, which never has been done in the CFL.Lately, though, Calgary's armor has sustained a few dents.

After losing two receivers to injuries last week, the Baltimore Stallions got a lot healthier at that position yesterday, when they signed former Winnipeg standout Gerald Alphin.Alphin, an eight-year Canadian Football League veteran who caught a career-high 18 touchdown passes for the Blue Bombers in 1994, had been a free agent since Sept. 1.That's when Winnipeg decided to release him, rather than pay the remainder of Alphin's 1995 salary. Under the terms of the league's collective bargaining agreement with the CFL Players Association, a team must pay a full season's salary to a player who has at least six years of experience and is with that team after Sept.

It's not as if quarterback Tracy Ham and slotback Chris Armstrong had disappeared as one of the Canadian Football League's more feared passing combinations. But in Saturday's 43-7 drubbing of Winnipeg at Memorial Stadium, Ham and Armstrong reprised an act that Baltimore fans took for granted last year.By teaming up for two touchdowns against Winnipeg, Ham and Armstrong brought back memories of 1994, when Armstrong caught at least two Ham passes for scores in five games. On Saturday night, when sloppy field conditions, dropped passes and untimely penalties delayed the Stallions' rout of the Blue Bombers, Ham and Armstrong restored order.

The last time Baltimore and Winnipeg met in a Canadian Football League game, an Eastern Division title was on the line, ++ the weather was brutally cold and windy, and the visitors from Baltimore got a memorable taste of Canadian nationalism.Eight months later, the picture has changed drastically. The Baltimore Stallions are the class of the CFL's new, five-team Southern Division of U.S.-based teams. The Blue Bombers, trying to recover from the loss of quarterback Matt Dunigan to free agency, are stumbling in the Northern Division.

It didn't take long for the Baltimore Stallions to seize control of last night's game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers -- in fact, it was exactly the same amount of time it took rush end Elfrid Payton to create havoc.Bulling in from the right side, Payton tackled Winnipeg running back Mike Oliphant for a 3-yard loss on the Blue Bombers' opening series, then pounced on quarterback Sammy Garza, causing a fumble that the Stallions' O. J. Brigance returned 10 yards.One series, two big plays.
