The BC Lions can't pull a Britney Spears...

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

It was a strange game as it started so well.. JJ actaully mixing it up and throwing well and long. What was he 10-12 at one point? It looked like a good game plan.

Then the second half started... and the turnovers... sheesh.

Toronto is in deap shit this weekend I'd wager.

I think it speaks volumes that BC is able to keep themselves in the hunt with their third string quarterback playing for an extended period of time. I don't think that would happen with just about any other team.

If I'm BC, I'm chalking this one up to a dud game, and let it go at that.

Welcome to Canuckscorner JoeKnows. Good first post. Not only are the Lions playing with their 3rd string QB but their middle linebacker, Javier Glatt has been out with an injury. Then there's OLB Otis Floyd and SB Geroy Simon who are playing but both banged up with injuries. Buono gave the players 2 days off after the Montreal loss so the most of the team must be pretty well banged up. I question his strategy sometimes but not with this decision. There's 8 games left and plenty of time for the Lions to make hay. Let's see what they can do when they're reasonably healthy. p.s. Both Dickenson and Pierce practiced today.

I think another thing to keep in mind too is that their main competition this year is Saskatchewan, who has a very lackluster history in terms of winning, plus a province that worships them. I made a very major mistake this offseason in writing them off because of the hiring of Kent Austin, but I really have to wonder if the Riders can live up to the hope and the hype as the season starts heading for an end, or if they'll fade a bit due to the pressure.

Don't forget Dante Marsh is still out along with numerous other DB's have been in and out. Tony Simmons with his bad foot.. it's just been an unreal year. Yet, they are doing great.. and judging by the tape heard on the team today still as loose as gooses. ... goosi?? 8-)
