The decision was made late in the week, a move that would lead to the chains getting moved and points being produced.

The Toronto Argonauts didn’t reinvent themselves in Friday’s season-opening win over the Tiger-Cats, but their offence did feature some new wrinkles and formations that clearly kept Hamilton on its collective toes.

When plays on defence needed to be made, the Ticats failed to execute, the most glaring would on offence on a night of offensive fireworks when a sure touchdown in the game’s waning seconds fell incomplete.

For the first time during his tenure with the Argos, head coach Scott Milanovich deferred to Marcus Brady, his newly anointed co-ordinator, to plot a game plan.

There are many games that get played within the game, one of the most significant involving the coaches and how they try to anticipate a move by their opposition and summon the appropriate counter move.
