Argos linebacker Marcus Ball isn’t really clear on some of the final goings-on in his team’s three-point win over the Edmonton Eskimos. But he clearly remembers a rather unhappy feeling in the locker room afterward.

For Ball, that’s about the only good thing — other than the two points — to come out of the game.

Ball and every other member of the Argos defence will gladly take the win but there was very little to celebrate after giving up 511 passing yards to an Edmonton offence that hadn’t exactly been lighting the league on fire until it got to Toronto.

“It was a lack of attention to detail,” Ball said of an uncharacteristically sloppy night by the Argos defence.

“It was minor things but those minor things got exposed in a major way.
