TORONTO - Whether Brandon Rideau has turned the corner, only time will tell.

Thereís no question the second-year Argos receiver has the size and the skill set to be a dominant player, but consistency has been an issue.

And now that heís copped his first CFL honour, itíll be interesting to see how Rideau reacts when equally inept Saskatchewan visits Toronto on Thursday.

As well as Rideau played in producing a career-high 147 receiving yards and two touchdowns, a more deserving player would have been quarterback Cleo Lemon, who played as well as any quarterback could possibly play.

The Argos arenít going to argue, not when so much has gone wrong in a 1-6 season.

The thinking is when a player is recognized, in Rideauís case as the leagueís top offensive player of the week, you appreciated it, acknowledge it and move on to the business at hand.

When the Argos took a fourth-quarter lead in Hamilton, Lemon and Rideau hooked up on Torontoís longest play from scrimmage this season, a 69-yard catch and run that would give the visitors a 32-27 lead.

Earlier this season, Chad Kackert was honoured as the CFLís offensive player of the week following his 139-yard rushing night in Edmonton.
