I'm sure this isn't going to make Argo fans happy, but before you post angry comments at the bottom of the page, consider this: on a neutral field, would you make the Argonauts favorites against any other team in the CFL?
I'm not sure about you, but I think I speak for most bookmakers when I say, the Argos would be underdogs against anyone at this point in the season.
Did they look promising? Of course.
Did they deserve to win against Winnipeg? Without a doubt.
Is their win against Winnipeg a sign of things to come? I'm not so sure.
At times, the Argos looked great against Winnipeg. Their offense had their share of struggles, but overall, they had an efficient and productive game.
However, as promising as the Argos looked offensively, there are some new concerns about their defense.
The Argos were awful in pass coverage—Buck Pierce and his receivers were doing everything they wanted. The Argos were even more disappointing when Buck Pierce decided to tuck the ball and run.
All in all, the Argos showed some life, but when their defense is considered the strength of their team, they won't win many games while allowing 34 points.
