Good morning, Faithful. I don't know about all of you, but I am pretty excited that the preseason is under way. We are less than 24 hours from getting our first glimpse of the 49ers against the Texans, and it should be interesting to say the least. After an offseason that most people put up there with the some of worst in sports history, it will be nice to get to see the team get back to playing some live football.

I am not sure how much we will be able to gather from these preseason games, but it will be nice to see some of the changes to the offense and defense, along with some of our new players. One of those players that comes to mind specifically is Jarryd Hayne. He has gotten a lot of positive reviews during training camp, and I am really looking forward to seeing him in all of his potential roles, after hearing he would be put in on both special teams and offense this game.

Let's hope we see some new and exciting players, and that the team finishes the game without any serious injuries.
