Through two glimpses into the soul of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, this team has been equal parts promising, maddening and baffling.

A hint of winning and a pinch of losing.

But is it on the way to dominating?

With that defence, it might be halfway there — if it’s really as good as it’s looked in two games against the Montreal Alouettes.

“Time will tell if we’re that good,” head coach Tim Burke said, Friday. “It’s hard to tell this early in the season. I mean, you can look really good one week and really bad the next.”

lf you judged them by their first 120 minutes of football, you could make Winnipeg’s entire front four East Division all-stars, after they made mincemeat of the supposed best O-line in the land.

Turned out Bryant Turner was bang-on when he told me they’d top their four-sack performance at home, Week 1, in the rematch in Montreal.
