 Somewhere between the Als’ incompetence and the Argos’ ability to pounce on opportunities lies the truth.

To be truthful, Montreal is in utter chaos.

By comparison, the Argos are the epitome of stability, the class of the East, which isn’t saying much.

Credit the Argos for pouncing on six Montreal turnovers and breakdowns on special teams, but there were enough mental errors and physical mistakes that must be cleaned up.

For now, the Argos must feel good with their 4-2 record and the two-game lead they’ve now established in the East by beating all three rivals, the latest a 38-13 beatdown of the Als.

Whether it’s Montreal, Hamilton or Winnipeg, there are plenty of issues that need to be addressed before each can be considered legitimate contenders.

There aren’t many with the Argos, which is why the East is suddenly a division for the taking, even with two thirds of the season still be played.
