TORONTO - Anthony Calvillo wont ponder seriously his football future until the end of the season.

But the 38-year-old Montreal Alouettes quarterback, excelling in his 17th year in the Canadian Football League, sounds like he wants to come back.

I have always said that as long as I enjoy the game, as long as I am physically able to play it, and I am still good at it, I am going to keep playing, Calvillo said on Thursday. At the end of the season, I am mentally and physically tired and take a break. The last thing I want to do is make an emotional decision.

Calvillo and the Als will take on the Argonauts at the Rogers Centre on Friday night.

BIG TEST

Argos head coach Jim Barker is not worried that the Alouettes will be in an angry mood after they lost 40-3 to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last week.

With just two games left in the regular season, both versus Montreal, Barker wants the opponent to be at its best.

Im glad they are bringing their A team, that they are bringing their guys to come here and try to get their guys back on track, Barker said. That is what makes this game meaningful. We know they are going to come in here and try to make a statement to us. All we can control is what we do.

BOYD GOING AND GOING

Although the Argos have clinched a playoff spot and know they will play the Tiger-Cats in the East semi-final on Nov. 14, dont expect Argos star running back Cory Boyd to be given much of a rest in the final two games.

Our offence is not at a point where we need to be to win a Grey Cup, Barker said. He needs to play. Were not going to be idiotic about it, I have also seen teams that start resting people and we are nowhere near a team that can do that. We are a team that is still finding ourselves, still trying to get an identity on offence and in order to do that, you have to have everybody involved.
