WINNIPEG - The Argos weren’t very good, running an offence that was offensive, yielding big downfield plays on a defence that looked too disjointed and falling victim to complacency on special teams.

With the playoffs just around the corner, the Argos need to get their act together or face the real possibility of a short post-season run.

Winning ugly is one thing, winning the way they did Saturday speaks to a team that needs to regroup and refocus ... and the quicker the better.

Ricky Ray was actually outplayed in the second half by a stiff named Max Hall, completing just two throws, though one was a clutch second-down strike to Jason Barnes on what would turn out to be the game-clinching sequence.

With the 26-20 win, the Argos are assured of a home playoff date, but are far from worthy, at least based on Saturday’s effort and back-to-back losses to Hamilton that exposed many deficiencies.
