The bye week of course reduces the potential pool of Gibson's Players of the week, and with strong performances by the Lions and Argos in week eight, it's not surprise that three of the four spots belong to players from those teams.
The Lions led the parade to the Gibson's as Arland Bruce III picked up his first accolade of the season with the Lions as Offensive player of the week, Aaron Hunt grabbed the honours for the Leos for Defensive player of the week thanks the Lions crushing victory over the Eskimos.
The Argos Noel Prefontaine was named as the special player of the week while Chris Getzlaf is our Canadian of the week, thanks to his efforts in the losing cause agains the Argos on Thursday.
