Week 4 CFL Stars of The Week





With the CFL abandoning its stars of the week and going with performers of the week (or offensive players of the week it would seem since defensive and Canadian players haven't been nominated yet), I give you my stars of the week

OFFENCE: Shakir Bell -- EDMONTON 

The rookie running back had a nice CFL debut running for 144 yards on 18 carries in the Eskimos win in Ottawa. Who's John White?  It may be a little early to make that comparison, but Edmonton may have found a guy to carry the mail this year which is good news for them as Mike Reilly recuperates from his knee injury. 

DEFENCE: Marcus Howard --EDMONTON 

Howard had two sacks in the win against Ottawa and in a year where sacks are at an all time low across the CFL, that's an impressive enough feat. 

CANADIAN:  Jon Cornish -- CALGARY

Cornish basically owned this award when they handed out and like him or not, he is the best Canadian----I mean national--- player there is in the CFL.  With the Stampeders having problems on the o-line, Cornish took it upon himself in the 2nd half to get rolling and he did picking up over 100 yards and maybe getting his game back on track after a slow start. 

SPECIAL TEAMS: Grant Shaw --EDMONTON

5 field goals on 5 tries in the 23-12 win over the REDBLACKS. This one is a no-brainer.

Messam deserved honourable mention.

It just kills me as to how someone else copied and stole this idea from you and runs it as his own much like his daily dozen.

You mean "National" not "Canadian".

Hey Scruffy:

The "actual" performers came out for the week and they actually recognized a defensive player (Howard and a Canadian (Cornish), but you had to know the latter would happen sooner or later.

I am shocked the league actually has noted a defensive player in their "performers" of the week considering they won't any defence in the league.
