But the Crows, coming off a Grand Final loss in 2017 and armed with Bryce Gibbs, were a complete team notwithstanding their own injury concerns.
The Crows ran away 55 point winners in this top v bottom clash, as the Blues moved to 0 and 7 to start the season.
Surely this record losing stream had to end soon?
