The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are on the rise.

Heck, even rival Toronto Argonauts head coach Scott Milanovich is saying it and it's not every day that someone from the Argos says something nice about the Ticats.

There’s really no debating the point as the Ticats have climbed back to .500 with four wins in their past five games. The offence, with Henry Burris at the controls, rookies C.J. Gable and Greg Ellingson exceeding expectations and Andy Fantuz back in form after some early injury woes, is the most stable offensive unit in the East Division right now.

The defence, with co-odinator Orlondo Steinauer finally getting his due, is overcoming injuries and earning respect around the league.
