Hello everyone, first time user of the board here. I will introduce myself as a diehard fan of the Leos for over 25 years. Living in Calgary which makes it tough to get to games in BC Place, but dont miss a single game at McMahon Stadium, and that includes this coming Wednesday. The last two years have been heartbreaking to say the least, but a new season with more roster questions at key positions than there has been in recent memory has me intrigued, excited and of course a little nervous about the 09 Season.
I am looking forward to watching three areas in particular when I watch the Lions take the field on Wednesday night, and up to opening day:
Who will take charge and show the offence they want to take reps while carrying the football....
Who on the defence will step up to take a leadership role with all the changes in the offseason...
Will Buck Pierce show that now is the time that he be taken seriously as a legitimate #1 QB...
For the record, I feel that this football team can, and will showthe West that they are still a team to be reckoned with and can battle for a home playoff game in the fall.
I look forward to discussing our favorite football team with everyone else on this board this season, and will report back on what I see at the game on Wednseday.
