Thipgen Named Special Teams Player of the Week

For the first time since Week 4 a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats has been named one of the Players of the Week. In this case, it was Marcus Thigpen being named the Special Teams Player of the Week.

Thigpen won the award based on his electrifying 118-yard missed field goal return for a touchdown. It was Thigpen's first return touchdown of the season and came when the Tiger-Cats have expanded his role on Offense.

On the offensive front, an argument could be made that Thigpen deserved the Offensive Player of the Week award as well. It went to Brandon Whitaker, who had a monster game and deserved the recognition, but the case for Thigpen being a double winner isn't far-fetched.

In any event, Thigpen did deserve to win Special Teams Player of the Week, and congratulations to him on that.
