The template was established against Saskatchewan, the Argonauts jumping out to an early lead, being able to run the football and operate a balanced offence.

There was discipline, plays being made on both sides of the ball and a win for their efforts.

It would represent the only time in four games that the Argos would emerge as winners.

For a team struggling to find its identity — injuries and inconsistency are the Argos’ hallmarks, unless they can quickly change their fortunes, which does not seem likely.

More than anything, the Argos are trying to weather this storm, one that threatens to bury them in last place in the East Division by the time this week’s slate of games wraps up this weekend.

With Ricky Ray as their quarterback, the Argos will be a pass-first team, but even head coach Scott Milanovich acknowledges the need to run the football.
