He made every throw he was asked to make during practice and took control of both the huddle and meeting room when the Argos offence gathered.

There’s a lot to like in how Zach Collaros has handled himself this week as the Argos prepared for Tuesday’s visit by Montreal, much like there was a lot to look forward to when Toronto’s second-year quarterback made his first-career start in late July.

In terms of practice habits and preparation, Collaros looks poised to have a solid game.

Mentally, he’s not as anxious this time around as he was when the Argos were preparing for the Lions.

The Als play a very aggressive brand of defence by lining up multiple bodies in football’s proverbial box, an alignment that will confuse quarterbacks when dropping into coverage is schemed, pressure and pain when attacking the backfield is dialed up.
