It remains to be seen whether the Argos will make changes to their roster or simply move forward with the belief that this group will improve.

 

As of today, the case for change is quite compelling.

Whether it’s a case of being too small up front on defence, not being to cover well enough in the back end, not experienced enough, perhaps just not good enough, the defence has clearly regressed to the point of concern.

Offensively, the Argos need some speed at wideout at a time when so much underneath stuff is being thrown because opposing defences don’t respect their vertical game.

Had Hamilton not botched a perfectly conceived screen late in the season opener, the Argos could well be 0-3.

The Argos aren’t that bad, but they’re not good enough to overcome so many stretches of bad football, blown coverages and an overall inability to make big plays.
