CFL Gameday: Winnipeg at Toronto (July 23, 2011)

The Argonauts take to the home field for the first time in this 2011 season, a few stumbles over the last couple of weeks bringing them to the home opener with a 1-3 record and just a few questions from their fans, most involving concerns over the anemic nature of the Argonaut offence of late.

On the other side of the Rogers Centre field on Saturday will be the Winnipeg  Blue Bombers, a team hobbled by injuries after a fast paced start to the CFL season, had this had been the Bombers of two weeks ago, the Argos might have been considered an underdog in their own home.

But with the Bombers sorting through their injuries and with a cautious return to action of staring quarter Buck Pierce, it should at least be a pick em, if not a game that favours the Argos.

Below you can find information about the first of the two CFL games for Saturday, offering previews and game reviews, as well as other items of note from and other sources.
