3) Rays wins it all in his first season with the Double Blue
Following the 2011 season, the Argonauts were in disarray. With a record of just 22-50 in the previous four season, including just one playoff appearance, they were searching for answers.
Fortunately for the Argos, the solution came courtesy of a surprising trade which brought in Ray from the Edmonton Eskimos. Suddenly, the Double Blue had one of the CFL’s premier playcallers at their disposal.
The 2006 CFL West All-Star didn’t waste any time getting to work. Despite missing four games, he threw for over 4,000 yards and led the team to a playoff spot.
Along the way, Ray set a new team single-season completion percentage record of 68.6 %. However, it was in the postseason where he really left his mark on a rejuvenated franchise.
The former New York Jet helped the Argos set a CFL-playoff record of 31 points in a single quarter during the first game (against his former team no less), before shocking the Alouettes in Montreal in the East Final. And he capped off a remarkable first season in Toronto, by leading the Double Blue to victory in the 100th Grey Cup on home turf, against the favoured Stampeders.
