Saw the following in the National Post. Must admit that my jaw dropped when I saw the quote from Wally Buono that the reason that they would not go with two backs on the field is that the one back would not want to block for the other!!!!! Seems to me that BC has a lot of players that spell Team with an I, but what shocks me more is that they have a coach that seems to think it is ok!!
B. C. Lions coach Wally Buono might have a way to get import running backs Joe Smith and Stefan Logan in the lineup at the same time. Receiver Cory Rodgers ruptured an Achilles tendon in the Lions' 27-18 win over Winnipeg on Friday, opening up a spot for another import. And while the Lions have receiver Rufus Skillern on their reserve list, the Lions could decide to go with the two backs instead, although they still would not be in the backfield together. "Neither of them would want to block for the other," Buono said. "What we're talking about is the two of them on the roster at the same time." Smith was the league's premier back, with 1,510 yards rushing last year, but he has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury. In his absence, Logan has made the most of his chance, running for 217 yards. Now the Lions would like a way to utilize both threats. "It's something we're at least talking about," Buono said.[url=http://www.nationalpost.com/todays_paper/story.html?id=668525]http://www.nationalpost.com/todays_pape ... ?id=668525[/url]
