Trying to determine the game level ability of a QB against a team that needed a win was the perfect time to play your backups.
Opportunities like this rarely happen and the Argos have a much better idea of what they have now.
If the Esks were in the same position and they didn't play Nichols and Masoli the whole game then that would pretty much confirm that the coaches didn't have a clue.
The players weren't trying to "tank", players don't do that, they aren't wired that way (except maybe POS, but yeah), but the team wasn't trying to win that game. It's not only the 2nd, then 3rd and 4th freakin string QBs, it's the not starting 10 regular starts, and then over the course of the game pulling alot of the rest of the starters.
Toronto was truly giving Hamilton "every opportunity", it's too bad the Ti-Cats Defense is so dreadful.
