The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have gone into the East Division bye week with a record of 2-7, and surprisingly, they are tied for third in the division with the Hamilton Tigercats. They are just three wins away from a first place spot, and it seems there is hope still for the Bombers.
With A superb performance by Kevin Glenn and the Bombers offence in their last game against the Hamilton Tigercats, it seems Glenn may have his MVP arm back and the offence back in full spin with Milt Stegall back in the lineup. Charles Roberts recorded 145 yards in the game, making that his first 100-yard game of the season.
The Bombers will be playing the 6-1 Saskatchewan Roughriders in their next game, which could be a very interesting game for the Bombers. If Kevin Glenn plays as well as he did in his last game, this game could be a close one. The Bombers also play the Roughriders the following weekend for the Banjo Bowl.
The Bombers will definitely have a better chance of winning at the Banjo Bowl then the Labour Day Classic, because it seems that the Bombers are more efficient in playing at home. The Bombers have allowed an average of 23.4 points per game at home, and have scored an average of 24 points at home. This could be a very close game. Let's hope the Bombers can get a huge win against the Roughriders on September 1st.
