Week 5 CFL Stars of the Week
With the CFL abandoning its stars of the week and going with performers of the week, I give you my stars of the week
OFFENCE-Henry Burris -OTTAWA
The ageless Burris still has some game in him, A 389 yard, three touchdown performance against the defending Grey Cup champs was arguably the biggest moment in the history of the young REDBLACKS franchise,
DEFENCE- Marcus Howard- EDMONTON
The Eskimos made life miserable for Drew Willy, Brian Brohm and the Winnipeg offence on a rainy Saturday at Commonwealth. Howard may only have had one sack, but he was in the Bombers backfield all night, It is the 2nd straight week he has been my top defensive player.
CANADIAN- Andrew Harris - BC
The Lions blew a big lead to the Argos, but it wasn't Andrew Harris' fault. He had all three of the BC touchdowns--2 by run and one by pass. He is the early candidate for the league's top Canadian and yes. I realize we aren't even a third of the way through.
SPECIAL TEAMS - Grant Shaw - EDMONTON
Shaw had only one field goal, but the former U of S Husky kept Winnipeg pinned inside their own zone all night with some tremendous coffin corner punts giving the Bombers long fields to work with.
