Glenn eyes up Argos rematch 0

Kevin Glenn got an unexpected sneak-peek at the Toronto Argonauts defence.
It was Game 2 of the season when Glenn was forced into active duty after Drew Tate suffered a shoulder injury.
The Stamps backup-turned-starter nearly orchestrated a massive comeback that eventually fell shy in a 39-36 loss.
“It was early in the game when Drew went down and I had to go in,” Glenn said. “The biggest thing in that game was the turnovers. If we eliminated those turnovers, I think that game would have been different. I think we did a good job of that (in Hamilton).
“If we protect the ball,
I think our defence will give us a chance and we’ll be OK.”
Glenn threw a pair of touchdowns but also had two interceptions, and he and running back Jon Cornish each had a fumble. Both players had better outings last week in Hamilton, especially Cornish, who ran for a career-best 170 yards.
“I think we just committed to (the run game) more,” Glenn said. “We had a couple of wrinkles to try to gain an advantage.
“Everybody committed to it. Not just the offensive line, but the receivers blocking downfield, and me as a quarterback carrying out fakes to pull linebackers out of the box.”
One of those wrinkles saw receiver Romby Bryant run three times for 19 yards and a touchdown. Kick returner Larry Taylor also took a direct snap for a 13-yard gain.
Glenn maintained all week he was more focused on the task at hand than on proving anything to his former team.
And following the win, he still refused to admit that the win was any sweeter because it came against the Ticats.
“It was a good win coming off a bye-week, getting back to .500 against a good team, and picking up a road win,” Glenn added. “But it had nothing to do with Kevin Glenn against Hamilton.”
