This year BC need both these guys if they want to be in the hunt for the Grey Cup in Vancouver this season. The waters are muddied right now as Casey is apparently hurt and the coach won’t take a chance playing him until he is fine. It is also a convenient excuse for the coach as he is a big Dickenson fan and knows Dave D will stay with BC until his career is done and Casey could flee after a couple of years (if the NFL calls him).
This is not a knock on our now no. 3 guy, Buck Pierce as I believe this guy can play in this league and has shown to be an exciting and talented player in the one exhibition game I saw him in vs. Calgary. He is a gutsy QB with an ability to learn and read CFL defences.
What I love about Casey is his ability to make big plays and really excite the team and the crowd.
It was absolute horse sh*t that Casey did not get into the Grey Cup game vs Toronto last year if for no other reason to allay the concerns of the BC fans who will now never know if BC didn’t fire all its weapons in that game and if one of those, Casey Printers could have turned the game for BC. It was definitely one of the major factors I didn’t buy season tickets this year as I am frustrated with the hesitancy of Buono to give this guy a chance.
