There is no quarterback controversy in Argoland, absolutely no reason why Zach Collaros should supplant Ricky Ray.

But there is a feel-good story and his name is Collaros, who should get the start next Thursday when the Argos go into Montreal to play the host Als.

By rewarding Collaros with an efficient and at times explosive debut as a starting quarterback, the Argos will allow Ray added rest to heal a left knee he suffered two weeks ago in Winnipeg.

Collaros isn’t afraid to run with the football and initiate contact and nor does he allow anything to get in his way or any adversity to knock him down.

Players rallied around him, Toronto’s defence played its best game of the season and plays were being made by every player who would touch the ball on offence.

All in all, this was a stunning performance on an improbable evening that would see the Argos beat the B.C. Lions, 38-12.
