WINNIPEG - Terrence Edwards has been on a lot of football teams over the years.
With just two winning seasons in his seven with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, most of those teams have been bad.
Specifically, bad offences have marked Edwards’ time in River City, the 2009 campaign under head coach Mike Kelly probably the low-water mark of them all.
But the 34-year-old is hard-pressed to remember when the futility level was as high as it is right now.
“Offensively, it’s up there with one of the less productive offences I’ve been in,” Edwards said as the 2-9 Bombers got back to practice, Tuesday. “We’ve dug ourselves a hole, offensively, and things happened with a coaching change, and we’re trying to adapt to it. That’s what being a professional is. We just keep plugging away at it.”
Plugging might be the word of the week, especially on the offensive line, where an already leaky unit has a few new holes in it — and brand new players about to be shoved into the dingy.
