Good picks, Sambo.
I'd move a couple of your honourables up, such as Jesse Lumsden, maybe Clermont.
And I think Nik Lewis should be ahead of Copeland as Calgary's honourable.
For the Rider's, a case certainly can be made for KJ, but I think it should be Dominguez, then Perry.
Of course with the injury, Matt will be out in the final count.
I'm not sure how Arland Bruce got on your list?
Maybe I am overlooking something?
Anyway, TO should get another defencive player--likely a DB.
I think Kevin Glenn is the front runner for league MVP right now, so despite Milt's career accomplishments, and pretty good numbers, you have that team 'Pegged.
Ricky Ray is a lock in Edmonton, and can't ague with Cahoon either.
Cahoon: Only looks average because he makes difficult catches and critical second-and-long conversions look so easy. Time and again he's been the guy who's bailed us out of a tough spot.
Cox: Agreed that he is somewhat overrated, although still a good DB. He takes at least one blatant PI call per game and can be had on the double-moves into deep routes because he's quite a physical DB. Drew has been the unsung hero of our secondary for quite a while now. You never hear his number called because nobody is throwing his way.
If you look at Johnson's sack total, last time I looked it was at 8, but fans expect that total out of him- to me he is having his usual year- allstar quality. Wake's total is 9, you dont expect that out of a rookie, so its easy to overlook Johnson's numbers. I would agree that Joe Smith is having a great year, but its BC's defense that is making them contenders.
I find him averaged based on what he is capable of. Considering Watkins was injured, I just thought he would do even better than that, since he was like our only good experienced receiver left.. maybe this season he will have a career high in yards and catches, but it does not mean that it was his best season or that he played better this season...That said he has always been my favourite player, so it's not like I'm saying he's a bad player but he's having an average year (FOR HIM) IMO.
Anyways now Watkins is back, and Thurman is getting better and better...The Als offence will be much more stable
