TORONTO - Even at the highest level of football, the most fundamental aspects will at times get lost.

When they reviewed the video evidence from Tuesday’s 20-9 defeat to Montreal, the Argonauts noticed how quarterback Zach Collaros had technique issues with his drop.

For obvious reasons, the Argos would have addressed the deficiencies during the game, leading further credence to the age-old football axiom of the eye in the sky never lying.

In a nutshell, Collaros was too quick in his foot work when dropping in the pocket.

He was also guilty of going through his reads too quickly.

In any pro sport, athletes want to slow the game down, but only the most seasoned and refined are able to achieve that level.

For Collaros, he was making only his second start versus Montreal, a team that started Tanner Marsh, who was making his debut.

Marsh would throw for more than 300 yards and benefitted from some rather shoddy officiating that went against the Argos.
