TORONTO -- Tim Burke has all the faith in the world in his starting quarterback, Buck Pierce.
“He is a veteran, and the things you notice in practice like how fast he gets rid of the ball and how quickly he makes his reads,” said Burke on Thursday in Toronto.
“Just the confidence that he has, gives everybody else more confidence,” he added.
Confidence, as it seems, might be the problem facing the Bombers this season.
In the games that Pierce has managed to stay under centre for the entire 60 minutes, the Bombers have appeared to be a much different team.
The scoring seems to come a lot easier than it would otherwise, while the defence feeds off the momentum earned by the offence.
Despite missing his fair share of action this season, Pierce has made it a point to keep being a leadership figure in the Bombers locker room.
