OUTLOOK

The Argonauts finished fifth last year and that's about where they should be this season. The first question Stevens needs to answer is who will be his quarterback. Troy Haller graduated after starting for 2 1/2 seasons. Five players are vying to replace him. One of the strengths should be the running game, led by Do and Bruce, who averaged six and 11 yards a carry in limited time. Don't look for any miracles here but four victories are not out of the question.
