Perfect example of making the most out of your oppertunity. Cobourne and Calvillo has been our best players this season.
Everyone wanted Cobourne gone, because they didn't like his stats when he had about 7 yards on 2 carries, but now everyone is wondering why they don't sell his jersey.
I will admit, I am on his bandwaggon. He came out of nowhere, I thought we were doomed when we let Payton go, but now, our Running Back is on the verge of making history, being the only player to get 1,000 yards receiving and 1,000 yards rushing.
Cobourne is #2 in rushing in the league, with half the amount of carries that Cates and Reynolds have. Calgary and Saskatchewan has the most balanced play calling offensively, calling pass and run plays. Montreal is about what, 90% pass? Imagine where he'd be if he averaged 20 carries per game rather than 10 or less. He's #2 in receptions, and is a running back. Truly remarkable.
If the league we're to give the MVP award today, I'd honestly be shocked if they gave it to Wes Cates, who don't get me wrong, is having a great season with the Riders, but I think Cobourne has been way more valuabe for us, than Cates has been for the Riders.
