All in for Tim Burke on Buck Pierce...

Window or aisle Mr. Brink?

Mr. Elliott, here's your apple and a road map!

Mr. Goltz I know we have ignored you the last three years (14 total passing attempts) but we are going to elevate you to the No. 2 spot and you are now one play away from being our guy!

Mr. Hall welcome to three-down football, here's your footnotes on everything to do with this great game. Read it, know it, get it done!

Mr. Clement welcome back to the CFL. I hope, as do all Bombers fans, it's right for you this time.

I was a little ahead of myself last year and more than likely put new offensive coordinator Gary Crowton in a tough spot, inadvertently. I believed in - and still do - Gary's offensive mindset, schemes and resume. There were too many things to digest and iron out last year for the Bombers offence to fire on all cylinders. Now with most of those barriers out of the way and Crowton having a full off-season to pour himself into the game, it could be their time. I'm anxious to see them start to hit their stride with Buck and Gary doing their thing.

Justin continues to develop and be virtually an unknown to all the fans around the CFL. If you talk to anyone in the Bombers organization, they all have nothing but great things to say about him. Well, let's hope we never get to see if this is true or not as the Bombers best chances for success are with a healthy Pierce. Head Coach Tim Burke is banking on that because there is virtually no CFL experience behind Buck.

Most of the fans will be on the edge of their new stadiums seats holding their breath watching Pierce play, executing what's supposed to be a new offensive system developed to protect their eggs in the basket: Buck!
