If the team doesn't do much this coming weekend he'll get some reps next week.
Yes, there was a reason Pierce was found playing flag football in New Mexico. There is no deep game at all, and he's always hurt. Jackson is perplexing. Not sure the Lions have used him to his full potential. I'm not a fan of the Offensive Coordinator, Jacques Chapdelaine. Wish he was still in Edmonton. The guy still can't figure out how to gain a foot on third down and short.
Casey is on my friends list on Facebook. He lets anyone on as a friend. And he actually posts so is fun to read. I told him that I was one of the world's greatest armchair quarterbacks, and should the Lions need my help he knows where to find me. lol
Lulay might get the nod before him. I wonder how much of this is just a safety net and prepping for a competition at training camp next year.
Buono surprised me with the tears. I guess it meant more to him than he was leading on. I believe alcohol got the better of Matthews. Remember that stint in Edmonton where he was let go for "health reasons". His wives probably let him go too.
Matthews had the Swervyn Mervyn era in BC. How can someone miss with that. Buono might not have lost a game. Then went to TO with QB Dunigan and Pinball having his best year. Go the Stallions when they could stack the team with unlimited Americans. It's pretty hard to say who had the better situations. Buono has done fairly well out here with a bunch of no names for the most part.
Pratt is a diehard Lions fan. It seems if one has been around the team since the days of Paul brothers etc one can get cynical. But ya, the old Printer days are just that. He had an eye opener in Kansas City, then Hamilton, and has likely matured, and just wants to get on with playing football again.
Printers isn't travelling with the team this week, I guess until he signs an actual
contract, he will stay behind.
Team 1040 made a point today to notice the look on Pierce's face when the
tv crew was at their practice,talking about printers, etc.
They said he looked totally pi**ed off.
Wally has given Pierce a lot of chances. I don't think he'll ever be healthy enough or have the deep game to be a consistent threat. He might be choked but the team needs some new life, or at least some insurance for what is probably inevitable - another injury.
