Tiger-Cats: Looking to build on Week 6 CFL victory
Although the victories have been few and far between for Hamilton (2-4) this season, the Tiger-Cats come out of their bye week riding a one game winning streak. The Ticats hung for a 30-29 road win over the Edmonton Eskimos in Week 6 and they defeated these same Blue Bombers 25-20 at home during Week 4 CFL action. Hamilton is still seriously challenged on defense as they lead the league in points allowed at 187 – good for a 31.1 PPG average.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers: After cleaning house – Bombers begin anew
Steadily becoming the joke of the CFL, Winnipeg cleaned house as the Blue Bombers fired general manager Joe Mack and president and CEO Garth Buchko during their Week 7 bye. While the front office boys can’t strap ’em on and play, they are responsible for assembling this sad sack crew and they both deserve their pink slips. Winnipeg hasn’t won since they defeated Montreal 19-11 in Week 2 and they have been outscored by a 135-173 combined count.
