WINNIPEG - The Bombers have many issues, from their quarterback situation to coaching to overall talent.

The foundation of the team has many cracks thanks to former GM Joe Mack, and it's going to take a while to fix them.

One problem the team could correct right now is its lack of discipline. The Bombers took a whopping 17 penalties for 137 yards during Friday's 37-18 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and it did not go unnoticed by the team's starting quarterback and head coach.

"You hate to blame things on penalties, but penalties killed us tonight, especially on some of the stuff they called on defence," quarterback Max Hall said.

Head coach Tim Burke noticed the orange nylon flying as well.

"We certainly had way too many penalties, which leads you to think that we're not being very disciplined," Burke said. "A lot of those penalties occurred on special teams, and that really hurt us."

It was actually the Bomber defence that was the most naught
