New Printers emerges from ‘the lab’;
‘I’ve gained a pretty bad rap over the years,
people thinking I’m a me guy’
Canwest News Service
Unthinkable, that Buono would volunteer to insert a potentially unpopular element a virus [my quote] back into a locker-room Printers once firstname.lastname@example.org
Nonsense, said the coach.
“Do you think I’m the most popular guy here?? he asked.
“There’s players on this team that don’t like each other.
So that’s irrelevant.
I know what happened here with Casey. I didn’t like it.
But at the end of the day, that’s not what matters.
If you want to live in the past, then
half these guys shouldn’t be here.?He [Casey] said all the right things Monday.
That he has grown up since his first time around,
and that he has spent the last eight months “in the lab?
— his phrase — trying to figure out
what a quarterback should
say, and do, and act like.
Do you think Casey has discovered a vaccine
and wiped out the virus he had for so long?Buono is careful to say, in every utterance, that Printers is here as injury insurance,
because the quarterbacking position is currently “dicey?
with Jackson hurt and Pierce perpetually teetering.
“This is more for depth, and I wouldn’t want
anybody to think it’s more than that,? he said.
“We’re happy with our guys, but
one injury and we could be in trouble.?....“I don’t know [if Printers has changed].
If that injury occurs Wally will
come out smelling like a rose.
I’m a big believer in listening, but I’m also a big believer in seeing.
Tell me anything you want to tell me, I’ve heard it all.
But what’s more important is what I see.?
I read that Mike Kelly got turned off when he saw Casey
instructing receivers at that pre-season recruiting camp
If that was a factor in him not inviting Casey to Camp
and Casey takes the BC opportunity and succeeds 'big time'
and Mike Kelly keeps 'bombing out' and gets fired
his preconceptions about Casey may have cost him his job.
I saw Casey communicating with his new receivers
during his first passing drills here in Hamilton
Charlie Taaffe a former QB watched him do it.
It seemed to make sense to him, and it did to me
but what do Charlie and I know..
I was impressed with his confidence and leadership.
