TORONTO - John Chick one week, Charleston Hughes the next, the battle of the trenches doesn’t get any easier for the Toronto Argonauts.

It was Hughes, for the uninitiated, who knocked out quarterback Ricky Ray with a thunderous back-side tackle last season when Calgary made its one and only visit to Toronto, sidelining Ray for an extended stretch with a shoulder injury in his non-throwing (left) arm.

Without Ray, the Argos turned to Zach Collaros, who would help lead the team to an 11-win season and first place in the East.

The Stamps and Argos both had byes, but each lost in their respective divisional finals.

As an offensive line, the Scullers’ unit has done well in two weeks, continuity being one of the hallmarks this early into the season.

In Winnipeg, the unorthodox system run by Bombers defensive co-ordinator Gary Etcheverry created issues, but there were many factors that led to the lopsided score.
