TORONTO — Week 6 in the CFL season emphasized the difficulty of trying to pick a winner.
Four of the six writers thought that the Edmonton Elks would finally pick up win No. 1 on the season and end their home losing streak. That of course, didn’t happen, as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats prevailed and prolonged Edmonton’s suffering.
It will be interesting to see how the Blue Bombers respond after giving up a huge lead in Ottawa. Normally, I would be quite confident that they will have a big bounce back game but they lost two now, and both of them in concerning ways for a team that is considered to be so good. Not to mention, they are playing on a real short week and have to think that the Elks are tired of losing and due. Wouldn’t that be something. My heart says the Bombers will come through:)
I don’t see them losing to the Elks but the way they are losing should be a concern. It was talked about to death how the Bombers took control in the final qtr the past 2 years. The worm has turned & 3 times in these 6 games, opposing teams have shut them out.
That has been their downfall. They have now been shut out in 3 of their 6 games in the final qtr.
