GUELPH, ONT. - The Bombers are standing on the edge of infamy.

One more setback, which could come Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and they will have the franchise's longest losing streak since 1999, the first year Dave Ritchie and Brendan Taman started cleaning up the Jeff Reinebold cesspool.

Don't forget the Bombers had Jim Daley and Mike Kelly leading them in the interim, so a sixth straight loss would be one of the deepest valleys this franchise has experienced in 14 years. And this is a season that has already been full of lows.

After the Ticats, the Bombers have their annual home-and-home with the league-leading Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Gulp.
