CFRA Live – Mid-season slide leaves Redblacks with little room for error down the stretch


Heading into Friday’s game against Saskatchewan, the Ottawa Redblacks were desperately trying to snap a 7-game skid and save their 2023 campaign. Fortunately, they succeeded, but that hill is still a mighty one to climb. A few months ago, Ottawa was fighting for position in the East Division, led by quarterback Dustin Crum’s sudden surge. A series of one-score defeats has turned that modest 3-3 record into an ugly 4-10 resume, highlighted by the B.C. Lions’ script-flipping a 19-point deficit into a 4-point triumph. CFRA Live technical producer Stephen Ellsworth explains why the idea of a potential sideline shakeup might make things worse.
