2. A lit­tle bal­ance

Winnipeg Free Press - Section D - - FRONT PAGE -

This isn’t rocket surgery, as Don Cherry would say, but one of the most ef­fec­tive ways to keep Willy up­right is to es­tab­lish — or, in the Bombers’ case, re-es­tab­lish — a con­sis­tent run game. Win­nipeg is av­er­ag­ing 93 rush­ing yards per game (fifth best in the CFL), but it’s a num­ber that needs to be con­sid­er­ably higher to pro­vide some bal­ance. In the sea­son-open­ing win over Saskatchewan, Willy threw for 325 yards, but the run game chipped in with 145 yards — its best to­tal to date. The Bombers have two ca­pa­ble backs in Paris Cot­ton and Cam Mar­shall, but their touches need to reach dou­ble dig­its.
