It's crazy, unthinkable really, that the Ottawa RedBlacks, with just one win at the midway point of the CFL season, can even be thinking the "P" word: Playoffs.

Only in the CFL, eh? Truth: One win isn't where they wanted or expected to be. But rather than writing off the season as failure, they're scrambling to get better, looking to get more consistent, looking to fine tune the rights and fix the wrongs.

It would be unfair to say the RedBlacks suck or stink. True, they have lost a couple of stinkers. The home game against Saskatchewan was over a couple of ticks after the coin flip. Realistically, they could have three more wins -- be at 4-5 -- and in first place in the East. But they're not.
