The Argonauts are going to play fast, get the ball to their playmakers on offence and play an aggressive press-man defence that will force turnovers when executed.

Friday's opponent presents a unique challenge in the wake of Hamilton's change in coaching and philosophy.

Head coach Kent Austin returns to the CFL, but he was last seen in three-down football as a Grey Cup champion in 2007. Orlondo Steinauer has had an entire training camp to implement his defence, but he's never served as a full-time defensive co-ordinator. There's familiarity given Steinauer filled in as an interim DC two years ago when the Argos made a mid-season change.

"I'm not sure," Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said of what's in store from Hamilton's defence.
