There’s an interesting debate going on in Winnipeg, involving the Blue Bombers.
Head coach Tim Burke thinks he has done enough to warrant another season on the sidelines in the Peg.
Burke points to “personnel deficiencies” on his roster and the fact the Bombers didn’t have a true starting quarterback this year.
His coaching staff has been in flux, after Marcel Bellefeuille replaced Gary Crowton as the team’s offensive coordinator.
And Burke also had to deal with a front office shuffle, which includes acting general manager Kyle Walters and interim president Wade Miller.
So because of all that’s gone on this year, Burke believes he should be given a chance to turn things around next year.
The argument makes sense.
But Burke has led the Bombers for a year and a half, and has just 6 wins under his belt.
Pro football is a results oriented business, and with a 2-and-12 record this season, the results suggest Burke can’t get the job done.
I would be shocked if the Blue Bombers don’t clean house this off-season.
