WINNIPEG - So what can one win do for a football team?

When it stops a seven-game skid, it’s probably double the value, psychologically.

Of course, that doesn’t count in the standings, and even if it did the Winnipeg Blue Bombers would still be looking up at the rest of the CFL.

Except for the even lower Edmonton Eskimos.

Which brings us to this week’s matchup — make that the matchup for the next two weeks: it’s the Bombers and Eskimos, with three wins in 20 games between them, in back-to-back Dysfunction Bowls.

Two games to determine which team is worse, which franchise is in more chaos.

In the green corner, the front office that keeps making a spectacle of itself, most recently GM Ed Hervey by calling out his coaches and an offensive lineman, of all people, saying he didn’t care if the poor guy doesn’t play again this season.
