I'd like to start by saying congrats to Kerry Joseph to winning last years Most Outstanding Player award and winning the Grey Cup. But now, a new season is on the rise and therefore there will be a new MOP.
Here is a list of what is going to be each teams choice for their teams MOP:
Hamilton Tiger-Cats: Jesse Lumsden - Lumsden finally has a season that isn't injury plagued. He has a fantastic season but doesn't get much recognition because his team didn't make the playoffs.
Montreal Allouettes: Ben Cahoon - Cahoon has a great season this year as he co-leads the league in receiving touchdowns. Unfortunately, he also does not get much recognition due to the lack of his teams success.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers: Kevin Glenn - Glenn has another good season this year, but not quite as good as last. Although it wasn't as good, he still receives a lot of recognition due to his great year.
Toronto Argonautes: Kerry Joseph - Joseph has a great season but his stats aren't quite as good as last year due to the fact that he has to share minutes with Michael Bishop.
East Finalist: Kevin Glenn
Saskatchewan Roughriders: Andy Fantuz - Fantuz co-leads the league in touchdown receptions with Ben Cahoon and has a great year, similar to last year but without the dropping every pass stint like last season.
Edmonton Eskimos: Ricky Ray - Ray has a fantastic year leading his Eskimos back into the playoffs after missing them the past two seasons. He leads the league in passing touchdowns and has a great year.
BC Lions: Joe Smith - Leading the league in overall touchdowns, Joe Smith has a great year. He completes this feat in only 14 games as he misses some do to knee problems.
Calgary Stampeders: Henry Buris - The comfort of having Dave Dickenson behind him calms smilin' Hank down as he leads the league in rushing touchdowns by a quarterback, leads the league in passing yards and comes second in passing touchdowns as he leads his team to the leagues best record.
West Finalist: Henry Buris
Kevin Glenn makes it to the finals for the second straight year in this award. Unfortunately, he comes up short again. Henry Buris has a fantastic year putting up the best stats of his life while leading the Stamps to a 13-5 record and making a Grey Cup appearance but later losing to the Argos.
Winner: Henry Buris
