we all saw this moment on TSN when buck pierce was on the phone calling upstairs shortly after a vicious hit that caused him to not only leave the game but to take time off the following week too. he put the towel over his head and when he lifted his hand holding the cup it was shaking like a leaf. it ended up raising two questions: can buck pierce stay healthy? how can quarterbacks be better protected?
buck pierce is a good guy. i really like him. i even like him as a quarterback! i want him to stay healthy and lead this team as he so badly wants to. i don't want him to get hurt anymore. unfortunately, the talk is leaning the opposite direction. sadness.
