The Buck Stops....

In the 'Peg. The Blue Bombers announced today that they have signed QB Buck Pierce to a contract.

The Cats had expressed interest in Pierce, but one has to wonder how serious they were about signing him. With Kevin Glenn, Quinton Porter and Adam Tafralis already in the fold, there wasn't really any room for Pierce.

In Winnipeg, however, he has found a situation where he becomes the odds-on favourite to start. His history of injuries, namely concussions, is problematic, but if Pierce is healthy he has the ability to be one of the most dominant QBs in the CFL. But staying healthy has been a problem for Pierce. At the very least his signing makes the Bombers a little more competitive, and perhaps more of a threat to the Cats' perch as the undisputed 2nd-best team in the East Division.

With the season less than 3 months away, things seem to be heating up once again.

  1. He won't play a full season. He'll be lucky to start 10 games.

    He's only started 30 games in the 5 years he was with Bc.

    His story reminds me of Jesse Lumsden. Awesome when healthy but too injury prone.

  2. I couldn't agree more. I think the Lumsden comparison is quite apt.
