MONTREAL -- Kerry Joseph has been getting hit more than Argos head coach Bart Andrus would like, but the Argonauts quarterback was not about to call anyone out.

"The offensive line is battling their tails off," Joseph said. "But it is not because the line is not doing their job. I'm not going to put my offensive line down for a mistake here or there. I need those guys."

Joseph has been sacked 19 times, most in the CFL.

Draw the line

Linebacker Kevin Eiben is one of the few holdovers from the Argos' defensive dominance of a few seasons ago and figured similarities can be drawn from the defence this season.

"We have the talent," Eiben said. "We definitely compare to other years.

"As each week has gone on, we've seen great improvement. There are a lot of new faces, but guys have started to adapt to the wider field, three downs and all the motion."

It's all good

When asked about his transition to the CFL after years in the NFL and in NFL Europe, Andrus said: "This by far is a better game than the U.S. version of football.

"I see it as a more exciting, more fluid, faster-paced game. Which, to me, if you are a fan watching, is something that would be a priority."

Robinson gone

The Argos released receiver James Robinson, who had 56 yards on five catches.

Robinson became expendable with the addition of P.K. Sam.
