Two days before the Bombers battle the Montreal Alouettes, practice looked more pointed and the team, head coach Tim Burke said, is hungering for a win.
Still, the coach shook off the suggestion that there is such a thing as a "must win" this early in the season. He hasn't forgotten the sour taste of year's disastrous 0-4 start, but "we went 0-4 ugly," he said -- now, he's looking to see how the team responds to the first-week loss.
"I'm more concerned that we just get better as a football team," he said. "It's more important that you're clicking on all cylinders later in the year."
At today's practice, defensive lineman Zach Anderson was held off the field to rest, after he got kicked in the shin at Monday's session. The first-year pro, who is up off the practice roster and slated to replace injured JT Gilmore, will be ready to go in Montreal, Burke said.
