Week Five July 24--27

With the exception of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, their cheerleaders and their fans, everyone could find something good about week four of the CFL. The Bombers had a bit too much news making in week four and things seem a tad unglued in Bomberland these days.

While the Blue work out the problems in and out of the dressing room the rest of the CFL is counting the positives of their first four weeks, none more happy than the Saskatchewan Roughriders juggernaut which has surprised many of the experts with their steely determination in the face of injuries and changes.

Hamilton while still finding problems collecting points in the standings, look very much like a team ready to finally make their move, as long as some key elements remain healthy and they have the time to develop.

The Lions and Eskimos have reversed some stumbles and look fairly reminiscent of the teams many thought they would be, while the Stampeders are starting to put a together what appears to be a very winning game plan.

Much the same is happening in Montreal, where the Als despite a new coach and a few changes still seem to be the team to watch in the East, though in Toronto the Kerry Joseph that everyone was waiting for finally showed what all the buzz was all about with a remarkable late game drive that sent Argo fans home happy and marvelling at his skills.

Some interesting groundwork for the fifth week of action in the CFL.
