Punt return is special teams not offense. Riders had a short week with no time to prep or heal injuries and still had the Bombers in trouble until they ran out of gas. Plenty of games to play yet, see if the old Bombers still have gas at the end.
Of course but let’s be realistic. It’s a long season and no one has won the Cup yet, but anyone who thinks at this point in time they aren’t the best team in the league are either homers for their own team or don’t follow the CFL very closely. The oddsmakers agree as do the ranking makers.
It could change of course but that is simply the present reality. The comment in the article just stood out to me because I haven’t seen a similar comment in any article by the writers on this site or anywhere really. I view it as sloppy writing is all. The statement is inaccurate
I disagree. That’s what things like power rankings and standings are for, but they only apply to that week. There is no valid argument to be made that any other team is better in Week 2. That could change in Week 3. If your Lions win this week and beat the Bombers next week they will be numero uno. Just not this week.
No. It is possible at times to objectively rank one above the rest. Sometimes it’s black and white. We are in such a time. 34-5. Seriously, are you arguing that another team is at their level right now. I would be interested to know what you base that on. I would say the same thing if I wasn’t a Bomber fan. I’m not sure if another team has ever won 34 of 39 games in the history of the league. It’s actually more like 34-2 if you remove the garbage time games that the Bombers lost. If another team has ever been on a 34-2 run I am sure they would be considered the best team in the league at that time. .
