With a new coach, new quarterback, and new players peppered throughout the roster, uncertainty is the prevailing theme for the Argos in 2010.
The biggest change for the Argos in 2010 is the addition of Jim Barker, a head coach who isn't short in CFL experience. Barker is taking the reins from Bart Andrus, whose first(and only) venture into the CFL can only be described as a disaster.
Even moderate improvement in 2010 will be encouraging for the Argo faithful.
As has been the case in recent years, the Argonauts' success will hinge on the play of their defense. With a young and inexperienced offense, the defense will need to force stops, but also continually put their offense in good field position if they're to achieve any success in 2010.
Offensively, the addition of Jermaine Copeland should ease the transition for CFL newcomer Cleo Lemon. New receivers Ryan Christian, Brandon Rideau, and Cory Boyd should also benefit from the extra attention for Copeland.
All in all, if the Argos' defensive and offensive lines can play consistently, they should have an outside chance at a playoff spot.
