TORONTO - In the days of Jim Kelly and the no-huddle offence that would help the Buffalo Bills to four straight Super Bowl appearances, the team’s attack would be known as the K-Gun.

The Argos tried something similar in last week’s season opener in Winnipeg, firing blanks as it would turn out, but it’s an approach the team will embrace on occasion.

For now, it’s a look the Argos have revealed, the kind of offence that has so much potential when drives are being sustained, when penalties aren’t forcing the offence to operate on a long field, when an opponent has a defence that is best described as unconventional.

“I’ve never thought about it,’’ said head coach Scott Milanovich of naming the offence. “I’m sure the guys would like to come up with a name.

“It hasn’t deserved a name yet.”

At least not based on the results of last Thursday night, when the host Blue Bombers ran roughshod over the Argos in an eye-opening 45-21 win.
