TORONTO - From the quiet of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ locker room on Thursday night came a unified message.

“I’m not concerned,” defensive tackle Brian Bulcke said. “Shoot, we were in the same boat last year. I think we’ve made tremendous strides on defence and special teams and the offence keeps coming along. We’re on that road and we should be better off than last year.”

Yes, the Ticats, after five games of the 2014 Canadian Football League regular season, find themselves right where they did as the calendar turned to August in 2013, sporting a 1-4 record after five games. This after a stunning loss against the visiting Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who were led by quarterback Drew Willy on a game-winning drive in the final two minutes, culminating with a two-yard touchdown pass to Nic Grigsby coming as time expired.

Bulcke still was dressed in his equipment as he spoke, many of his teammates already showered and departed into the night.
