At no point during the Scott Milanovich era have the Argos looked this bad, this disjointed and this lousy.

At no point have the Milanovich-led Argos lost three games in a row to fall into the depths of cellar-dwellers in the East.

But that’s exactly where the Argos find themselves, a team on a three-game losing streak, the first team in the woeful East to have four losses, the latest playing out at Mosaic Stadium, where the sea of Green of White savoured every moment of misfortune by the visitors en route to a 37-9 win by the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Saturday night.

Ricky Ray is playing at a level well below standard, but there are mitigating circumstances.

He hasn’t lost his touch, but he’s lost his receivers and there’s not enough protection or a run game to compensate for so many areas of deficiencies.
