TORONTO - Imagine what Ricky Ray can do once his main receivers return from the injured list.

Imagine what the Argos are capable of doing once they decide to play disciplined football, exercise ball security and not get caught up in selfish behaviour.

As bad as the East has been this early CFL season, as bad as the Argos have looked, they are not that bad of a team and certainly more than good enough to beat a Winnipeg Blue Bombers team that alternated from imploding to exploding when execution was achieved on offence.

Ray was sublime, tossing four touchdowns, delivering the football, even when some of his low-level receivers were dropping passes and used his feet deftly in extending a play that ultimately led to the game-winning score in the fourth quarter, a period in which the Argos were dominant.

Curtis Steele was a man possessed, filling in for a fumble-prone Steve Slaton at tailback, running hard and decisive, pushing the pile.
