TORONTO - For the second consecutive week, Zach Collaros did a lot more bad than good when running the Argos offence, playing at a level that warranted a quick hook.

For the second week in a row, head coach Scott Milanovich resisted the urge to pull his second-year signal-caller.

And for the second straight week, it was Collaros who made the biggest plays in the match’s biggest moments to lead the Argos to yet another late-game win — this time a 31-29 thriller over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday night in Regina.

“It’s not a lot of fun,’’ began Milanovich, when asked how he handles the early game struggles of an offence orchestrated by his young quarterback. “Fortunately, many, many years ago, I played the position.

“Marcus (Brady) and I reminded ourselves that this is a young quarterback and you got to give him time. He did his job when it mattered the most and that’s what being a quarterback is all about.”
