Shabazz plays for the Edmonton Eskimos and had a CFL high eight tackles and added two quarterback sacks, a forced fumble, a tackle for loss and a special teams tackle in the Eskimos 37-14 victory over the visiting Montreal Alouettes.
Shabazz has recorded 63 tackles, three quarterback sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery this season for the Eskimos.

Way to keep up with the former Aggies. I knew Siddeeq when I was a student at NMSU. He was a heck of a player and a great student.

I also saw that Buck Pierce is doing pretty well with the BC Lions in the CFL. It looks like he splits time at QB with Darius Jackson, a former Notre Dame QB, but Buck's passing stats are very impressive. I think Buck was probably the best QB NMSU has ever had. Too bad he was hampered by injuries in a season that would have been his best (2002).

The Aggies could use a QB like Buck right now. A solid pocket passer who could also run the ball and was comfortable outside the pocket. I like Chase, but once that pocket collapses (which it often does), Chase will either get sacked or make a huge mistake.
