Their season now in peril, the Argos find themselves in one of those soul-searching moments that will either define this group or risk having this it torn apart.

It’s so black and white, so cut and dried that any other spin would be a complete waste of time.

The Argos are in a bye week, their second of the season, their next game not until Sept. 13 when they play in Calgary before heading to B.C.

Following their two-game trip out West, the Argos return home to play host to Edmonton.

At 3-7, the Argos are in serious jeopardy of dropping to 3-10, an unconscionable turn of events from a franchise that won a Grey Cup two years ago with a 9-9 regular-season record, followed up by a 10-win season and home field in the East final.

Turmoil, injuries and inconsistency have plagued this year’s Argos, a team that’s still trying to find its identity.

The defence has played well, but better coverage in the secondary is still required.
