WINNIPEG - It was a year ago Sunday that former Bombers GM Joe Mack fired head coach Paul LaPolice.

Where has it gotten them? Not very far. In fact, they're going backwards.

"Right now we can't see the light at the end of the tunnel," defensive tackle Bryant Turner said after Saturday's 37-14 loss to the Tiger-Cats in Guelph, Ont. "We're just basically going off of faith right now, and we'll just see where it takes us. We gotta step up. It's the same old, same old we've been saying the last five weeks. We're just going on faith, basically staying strong and hopefully keep plugging and see how it turns out, really."

The Bombers had a .364 winning percentage under LaPolice, who is now a TSN analyst, but they have sputtered to a .278 mark under current head coach Tim Burke. They are less disciplined, they are worse on offence, and their defence has been nothing to write home about under Casey Creehan.
