I asked the Bombers on Wednesday what they’ve come up with in the last year to have better starts in games, and all I got were boring cliches about executing and taking it one game at a time.

No wonder they sleep through the first quarter. They’re obviously not putting much thought into it.

So here are five ways for the Bombers to come firing out of the gates and give themselves a better chance at winning:

1. Razzle dazzle, baby!

Come on, Gary Crowton. It’s time to spice it up a bit. The first play of the home pre-season game was Buck Pierce running an option, and he got tackled by two members of the Argos. That’s not good. Then the first play of the season was a long toss to the field side that Geoff Tisdale intercepted. I could have come up with those two plays. Why not a flea flicker or a reverse? Do something a little different to get the team fired up — and you might even score, too.
