So the CFL Players of the Week are out and despite a road victory (albeit against a winless team) the Ticats were shut out. Winnipeg quarterback Buck Pierce won offensive player, Edmonton's Greg Peach (who?) won defensive player, Edmonton's David Duval won special teams and Winnipeg's Cory Watson won best Canadian player.
The Cats best chance was Chris Young with an 189 yard and TD receiving game. Maybe if he went over 200 yards or had an extra TD he would have had a chance. Pierce's numbers were quite good, 22 for 27 for 361 yards and 3 TDs. That's a pretty awesome completion percentage so I can't really fault the pick. Philosophically, it is difficult for a receiver to beat out a quarterback for this award. All four winning quarterbacks have to have a mediocre week and the receiver's numbers have to be stellar.
Just in case you wanted to know how many awards each team has won, Winnipeg has five, Montreal and Edmonton have four, and BC, Calgary and Hamilton have one a piece.
