WINNIPEG - You didn’t think the wins were going to start happening simply by getting rid of Joe Mack, did you?

In their first game since GM Mack and CEO Garth Buchko were fired last week, the Bomber defence had a horrible outing and the offence, under first-time CFL starter Max Hall, was even worse.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats pounced on the Bombers early and cruised to a 37-18 victory in front of 32,409 spectators at Investors Group Field. The Bombers (1-6) still haven’t won in their brand new park, falling to 0-4 at IGF, and they have lost five in a row for the first time in three years.

The Ticats (3-4) moved four points up on the Bombers and will host them next Saturday afternoon in Guelph, Ont. Who starts at quarterback for the Blue and Gold is anyone’s guess at this point. Not even head coach Tim Burke knows

“I don’t know,” Burke said. “We’ll talk about it and find out. It’ll be performance (based). I’m going to let the offensive co-ordinator pick the quarterback, unless I have really strong objections.”
