TORONTO - Football life doesn’t get any easier for the Argos, a team that has somehow overcome a variety of issues and deficiencies on both sides of the ball in back-to-back comeback wins.

But, eventually, a complete game must be played.

Eventually, the offence has to find a way to get off to better starts and not wait until the second half to establish any consistency and efficiency.

Defensively, the unit, no matter whom co-ordinator Chris Jones decides to line up where and under which scheme, needs to clean up its play.

Heading into Calgary this weekend, the Grey Cup champs are walking a fine line between winning and losing.

Eventually, the team’s luck will run out and reality will hit the Argos squarely in the face.

“I think it’s going to be a good test,’’ said veteran Canadian linebacker Jason Pottinger of Saturday night’s tussle in Cowtown. “We haven’t played well the last two weeks, but we’ve pulled off wins.
