Weird but Saskatchewan with second best defense has no stars. Weaker defenses in Montreal and Edmonton have more stars than BC's top defense.

In Sask there was alot of rotation of starters. Indication of at least depth on D if not the all stars. Acouple of linebackers that were probably fourth and fifth were Loebendahn and Brackenridge.

Ironic but sad that Ticats have more players (7 in 8 positions - C Williams x 2) than they had wins! Goes to show that there is talent at least in two areas of the team. Knowlton (LB) might also have had a nod if he hadn't missed more than half the season with injury - but then Ticats would likely have had more wins! Great to see that the three ST players are all in black and gold too! Fantastic job Luca, Josh, and of course Chris!

To correct myself Ticats have 6 players in 7 positions - Chris Williams on both special teams and as receiver.

I think it's a fairly balanced selection, though I have a question, hypothetically, if they were to pick a second QB (say for "backup purposes") for both sides, who would've been given the nod?
