There isn’t much happening on here, so let me hear your picks for players of the week? We’ll see how well we stack up against the “experts” when they are announced tomorrow or Tuesday.
Offensive player of the week
Ricky Ray - 334 yards passing, 2 TDs 0 INTs
Korey Sheets - 178 yards rushing, 23 yards receiving, 2 TDs
Henry Burris - 362 yards passing, 2 TDs, 47 yards rushing
Hon Mentions to Chad Simpson, Taj Smith
My pick: Henry Burris - I didn’t realize his numbers were so good, I thought Sheets was the easy pick this week.
Defensive player of the week
Rey Williams - 8 tackles 2 sacks
Charleston Hughes - 4 tackles 1 sack 1 forced fumble
Alex Hall - 3 tackles 3 sacks
Knowlton - 3 tackles 2 sacks
My pick: Alex Hall
Canadian player of the week
Andre Durie - 100 yards receiving, 1 TD, 22 yards rushing
Cornish - 90 yards rushing, 10 yards receiving
Giguere - 94 yards receiving, 1 TD
Andrew Harris - 70 yards rushing, 30 yards receiving, 1 TD
My pick: Andre Durie
Special teams player of the week
Rene Paradis - 5/5 FGs
Bartel - 8 punts 50.1 yard average
My pick: Rene Paradis. Pretty uninspiring week for special teams. Couple of different guys had nice returns, but nothing special to warrant the award.
It’s one of those weeks that nobody really ran away with any 1 of the awards. I feel that offensive player is down to 2 players (Burris and Sheets). Durie should be the easy pick for Canadian, although we’ve seen them give it out for the feel good story before, so if I was going off the board I’d go Rob Bagg or Sinopoli.
