It's football time! The games may not count in the wins and losses, but for the hard core fan, this is a chance to really start to see where the team stands in its position battles. We won't get any final answers today, and we could end up with more questions than answers, but at least we see something. Practice reports are great, but at some point you just want to see things actually happen!
The position battles will be impacted today, but things can change on a dime. A strong performance today can be cut down to size by a poor performance next week. In the same fashion, a poor performance today can be quickly forgotten with a big performance next week. We'll see what the game brings.
