The Toronto Argonauts take the short drive down to Hamilton to face the Tiger-Cats in the second Canadian Football League preseason game of the year and the first for both teams.

I’m not sure what we’re going to get with Chad Kelly and Bo Levi Mitchell, in terms of their reps. But it’s equally important in what the teams see behind them for completely different reasons.

For Mitchell, there will always be questions about how many games he’ll actually be able to start for the rest of his career with the injuries and shoulder issues. The Tiger-Cats only have three quarterbacks on the roster so if Mitchell doesn’t play or gets limited reps I’m interested to see what they have in Taylor Powell out of Eastern Michigan as a potential future prospect as Matthew Shiltz is easily Bo’s backup.

In Toronto, it’s an entirely different reason to get ample time to evaluate the backups because you can’t bet your house that Chad Kelly is going to lock down ‘franchise guy’ status. The issue is Kelly’s career pass attempts of 45 is 45 more than any other quarterback on the roster. So, Toronto needs to get a good, hard look at backup Ben Holmes and their two newcomers.

The other story I’ll be following is the defensive secondary for the Tiger-Cats. They’ve lost a few of their key players last season and they’ve plugged some holes in free agency, but they need one or two to show they can be dependable enough to lock down some of the top receivers in the CFL.
