The wait is still on for the B.C. Lions' abysmal offence to turn things around.

Despite putting 25 points on the board in a loss to Edmonton last Friday, only 10 of those came from the Lions' offence - a Travis Lulay rushing touchdown and a Paul McCallum field goal - while Lulay's 134 passing yards is a season low for the team.

And while it's a must for Lulay - or whoever takes the helm as quarterback this week- to turn things around, the task becomes that much tougher with the 4-1 Calgary Stampeders coming into town on Saturday.

The Stamps are top three in almost every defensive category, including fewest points allowed per game (21) and second fewest average yards against per game (333.8).

B.C.'s most effective (and we're using that term loosely) ingredient in their offence against Edmonton was their ground game, which rushed for 163 yards.

But Calgary is formidable against the run, allowing 99.2 rushing yards per game and holding opponents to a CFL-best average of 5.3 yards per gain.

The Leos have yet to prove they can execute offensively. With each week's game, more questions than answers are being raised.

And until they start playing consistent football, the current four-game losing skid won't be ending anytime soon.
