I can`t lie and say it doesn`t bother me to see Trestman and Popp in Toronto. Somehow it doesn`t feel right.

I have Trestman`s email from back in the day which I`ve used over the years to congratulate him on things. I did so when he was hired in Toronto and he quickly thanked me, not really knowing who I am. So he is the gentleman`s gentleman.

As far as Trestman the Head Coach, I felt that he was too much into his offensive co-ordinator role, relying too heavily on his assistants for defense and special times, often to his detriment.

The west coast offense he brought to the Alouettes was certainly innovative, but it has since spread throughout the league and defenses have had the time to catch on. It will be interesting to see if he has anything innovative to bring to the CFL this go around.

As for Popp, he appears to be rejuvenated. The question I have is if he will continue to try to be the home run hitter looking for the big names to add to the Argos. Or if he can keep a lower profile and pound the pavement looking for unpolished gems like he did in his Alouette beginnings.

There won't me much of an effect on Toronto's offence going for Milanovich to Trestman. The key to Toronto's success is Ricky's health.

Je crois qu'un facteur sera dominant dans les succès ou les infortunes des Argonauts : Corey Chamblin. Pour moi, c'est leur talon d'Achille.

I`m not a fan of Chamblin either. Trestman with his late start might not have had many options.

They also have a rookie Special Teams coach in Kevin Eiben. Our old friend Tracksuit, alias Andy Bischoff, somehow has survived Trestman`s firing and is still listed as an Offensive Assistant with the Ravens.

Trestman n'avait peut-être pas beaucoup d'options, mais s'adjoindre d'un gars qui a prouvé son incompétence et le promouvoir comme assistant-entraîneur-chef n'est pas nécessairement une bonne idée. Je peine à croire qu'avec tous les contacts qu'ils ont, Popp et Trestman n'ont pu trouver mieux que Chamblin.

Enfin, si ça s'avère qu'il est aussi génial qu'en 2015, leur malheur fera le bonheur des Alouettes.

Argos gave up almost 600 points last year. Marc's roster will likely make that worse.
