EDMONTON - Is it just me, or does this Edmonton Eskimos team look a little too much like the 2010 Winnipeg Blue Bombers?

At 4-14, it’s not a compliment, but there are just too many comparisons to be drawn between the two teams to ignore.

The thing is, a league-record eight of those losses were by four points or less, which is all that separated the last-place Bombers from the division-leading Montreal Alouettes, who finished 12-6 on the way to defending their Grey Cup title.

But you can’t blame Winnipeg’s lacklustre effort of the residents of Swaggerville, also known as the Bombers defensive dozen, who started up a T-shirt company on twitter where fans could by them at $25 a pop.

They weren’t just selling Swaggerville schwag, they were selling an attitude that not only talked trash, but backed it up on the field.
