TORONTO MIGHT BE READY FOR THE BILLS

Here’s another reason for the folks in Toronto to try to finagle as many Buffalo Bills games as possible.
The CFL team that plays there might not be very good.
On Thursday night, the Argos were ambushed by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, 32-13. Hamilton hadn’t won in Toronto since 2001, and finished last season with a woeful 3-15 record.
Leading the way for Hamilton was former Chiefs quarterback Casey Printers, who had tried unsuccessfully to follow in the footsteps of men like Joe Theismann, Warren Moon, and Jeff Garcia by making the jump from the CFL to the NFL. Printers threw for 171 yards and rushed for 32, scoring two touchdowns.
For the Argos, former NFL receiver Bethel Johnson caught only one pass for 11 yards, and former NFL quarterback Michael Bishop stayed on the sidelines, with former NFL defensive back Kerry Joseph getting the reps.
Another former NFL defensive back, Willie Middlebrooks, who was the league’s defensive player of the week after the first round of regular-season game, didn’t play due for the Argos to a foot injury.
