Double Blue to teal blue

James Robinson has been given another kick at the NFL can.

A good guy who has bounced around from team to team, league to league and position to position, Robinson is off to the Carolina Panthers on Monday in hopes of finding permanent employment.

The Argos were notified of Robinson's athleticism by one-time Double Blue quarterback Rickey Foggie, who coached Robinson in arena ball.

Robinson played for Rich Stubler in 2008 at wideout, filled in for an injured Bethel Johnson and caught 10 passes for 194 yards in one game.

Stubler got gassed, Robinson gets converted to the defensive secondary and he's been looking for a home since.

He has auditioned in the NFL before for Washington, Miami and Cleveland.

If Robinson can't make it with the Panthers, he'll likely return to Toronto and rejoin his spot on the practice roster.

If there's ever a guy worthy of good luck, it's Robinson, a good guy who deserves better.

THREE'S A CHARM

The Argonauts haven't reeled off a three-game win streak since the end of the 2007 season when they ran off a seven-game win total, only to lose in the Eastern final as hosts.

The Lions are wounded and are expected to start Travis Lulay at quarterback this Friday.

PRACTICE PERFECT

Argonauts head coach Jim Barker was a lot more impressed with the pace and tempo of Wednesday's workout than he was on Tuesday.

What Barker dislikes is when his team goes through the motions, which he felt the Argos did during Tuesday's session.

"More than any other sport, you practise more than you play in football,'' Barker said.

"The hardest thing in football is to maintain your focus."
