Vote: Who will be MVP of the 100th Grey Cup?

Will Chad Owens follow up CFL most outstanding players honours with the Grey Cup MVP award? How about Canadian running back Jon Cornish? Or, does someone few are talking about steal the show? We want you to tell us, now.

A Canadian Football League record for all-purpose yards in a single season. The league leader in receiving and return yards. A franchise playoff record for receiving yardage. And CFL most outstanding player honours.

Chad Owens doesn’t want to stop there.

How about a victory in Sunday’s 100th Grey Cup at Toronto, where Owens has thrilled Argonauts fans all season? And if he makes enough of an impact in the big game, perhaps the receiver/kick-returner will capture the most valuable player award.

The competition will be steep, though, with 2012 CFL top Canadian and MOP finalist Jon Cornish standing a good chance after leading the league in rushing with 1,457 yards to become the first Canadian to do so since Orville Lee achieved the feat in 1988 with Ottawa.

How about Argos quarterback Ricky Ray, who was named MVP of the 2005 Grey Cup in Vancouver? A quarterback has won the award 10 times in the past 15 years. There’s Ray’s Calgary counterpart in Sunday’s game, Kevin Glenn, who stood out in the Stampeders’ West final win over B.C.

Who knows, maybe Toronto running back Chad Kackert is the difference Sunday or Calgary defensive end Charleston Hughes or Argos defensive back Jordan Younger.

But why wait. We want to know, now, who will be named MVP.
