VANCOUVER - So good last week, so bad on Thursday night and so long to this talk about the Argos offence being a juggernaut.

When the line of scrimmage isn’t being dominated, when receivers aren’t able to get open down field, when down field shots aren’t even attempted, questions suddenly arise.

Had Toronto’s defence not played this bend but don’t break game, the Lions could have easily run the Argos out of town.

Toronto hasn’t won in Vancouver since 2002 and at no point Thursday night did the Argos ever look like a team capable of taking matters into their own hands, eventually losing 24-16, a score line that flattered the visitors.
