    He was extremely impressive. He earned the respect of the announcers and the players on both teams.

    Chris Schultz, a CFL columnist for TSN, speaks out:

    There is nothing more important than finding good players, getting them into your organization and molding them into stars. After a three-game situational test, I think Rakeem Cato is on his way. For someone who is 23, he has remarkable poise and control. He has equal ability in and out of the pocket with as smooth a throwing motion and delivery that there is in the league. On August 1, he will make his fourth start in pro football and even though playing in Calgary will be a significant challenge, I see no reason why he won't enjoy continued success. He has 'it', whatever 'it' is.

    Another player that has 'it' is Edmonton Eskimos running back Shakir Bell. Eighteen carries for 144 yards at 0ttawa was impressive, considering this was his first start, but it was the types of runs that you can't help but be impressed by. Some were pure effort and determination, a refusal to go down until the end was inevitable. Other runs were successful due to reading the blocking, making the most of the moment and doing the simple aspect of following the way the play was designed. His 5'8" stature seems to be an asset more than a limitation and perhaps his greatest asset is natural explosive acceleration.

    Just like in Montreal with Rakeem Cato, whoever found Shakir Bell made their contribution to winning in a big way. I realize it is one game and how he blocks on passes is a mystery to unfold but you just see moments of running back skill that impresses. To me, John White is a slasher/sprinter while Bell is a make-you-miss/run-you-over-type of back and like Cato, should enjoy continued success. He has 'it'.

    The Canadian Football League announced Eskimos running back Shakir Bell and defensive end Marcus Howard as two of the three top players of the week for Week 4 for their performances in Friday's 23-12 victory over the Ottawa RedBlacks.

    Bell recorded 154 all-purpose yards, including 144 yards on 18 carries - the most recorded by a single player in a game this season. Friday's win marked Bell's first regular season game in the CFL.

    Bell Sidelined with Concussion

    To those who have been following Shakir Bell, you probably saw where it was announced last week that he suffered a concussion in practice and would not play in the game last Thursday. Edmonton lost but Chad Simpson, Bell's replacement (and former starter), gained 98 yards in 13 carries and caught a 45-yard pass for a touchdown.
