Each team is allowed to have twelve players on the field at any one time (one more per side than in American football) and, technically speaking, all twelve are allowed to rush the quarterback. But I have never seen that happen.

Skills used in Canadian football?

The CFL focuses more on speed and quickness rather than brute strength as in the NFL. Many CFL players are talented (they have excellent football skills) but are considered too small and undersized to play in the NFL. Many players who were originally thought to be too unskilled to play in the NFL have proved their skills in the CFL and have had successful NFL careers thereafter. Extremely speedy players enjoy the much less cramped field in the Canadian game, which favours their style of play.
