Hey just wonder who you guys think is the players of the year in the CFL so far. I’m a diehard rider fan but i’ll try to be objective in my pics.
QB - Dickenson, The numbers he’s putting up with the less than adequet O line in front of him makes the stats even more impressive. Honorable mention to Ricky Ray (to many INT’s)
WR - Ben Cahoon, Consistantly the most reliable pass catcher in the CFL and now all time leader in yardage for the AL’s, Honorable mention to the entire recieving corp of the Lions (but even i could catch a dickenson pass)
RB - Charles Roberts, Even though his first 3 games didn’t add up to a hundred yards he still leads the league in rushing. Him and stegall make up a deadly duo to bad there in winnipeg. Honorbale mention to Jophrey Reynolds (Gets forgotten about when Burris is throughin it 20 yards to Lewis or Copeland)
O-Line - Jeremy Oday, Sorry guys but this one i gotta be biased about. He plays on an o-line with three previous lineman of the year and is forgotten about by everyone else. He’s the anchor of an 0-line that has allowed the least amount of sacks in the CFL. Could you image Dickenson behind this line, wow. Honorable mention to the rest of the riders o-line.
D-line - Brent Johnson, the rookie for BC up till they played the Riders was leading the league in sacks. Most players take a few years to fully develop into front line players and this kid did it right outta the gate. Plus he’s Canadian. Honorable mention to Joe Montford and Adriano Belli.
Linebacker - This was by far the hardest of all of them to pick because every team has atleast one All-star calabre Linebacker. I could play it safe and pick John Grace or Barrin Simpson but I think I’ll take a risk and say AJ Gass. He may be a cheap shot artist but most of the time if your in his way he’s gonna hurt ya.
DB - Korey Banks - Has caught more passes than many of the Renegades recievers. Why QB’s even throw the ball his way anymore i don’t know him and Ranek are the only bright spots for the fallin Renegades. Honorbable mention to Scott Gordon who can flatten just about anyone brave enought to come over the middle.
Kicker - Sandro Deangilis - Spelled his name wrong but don’t care cuz like my punter he’ll be in the NFL soon enough
Punter - John Ryan - Forget what game it was but punted out of his endzon and pinned the other team down on the own 20. Soon to be a very rich canadian in the CFL
