A win would be nice for sure, but this is more of an individual test than a real team effort towards getting a W. My hope is that a lot of the young guys will ball out with their time to shine and because of that we end up on top.
Main guys I want too watch tonight are Swindle and White playing at opposite tackles, will be a good chance to see them on the field at the same time and compare their abilities. Also very important to see how Tyms performs after flirting with so much potential at the end of last year, and also Jones out wide as our starting Canadian, would like to see what he has to offer considering the severe lack of depth at Canadian receiver at the moment.
On defence no surprise all eyes will be on the defensive backfield. Depth was our biggest enemy last year after the slew of injuries, and it hurts my head just thinking of the same scenario playing out this year. Mainly want to watch Will Hill to see how he reacts to the Canadian rules/size of field at safety, I am still holding out hope he brings the same talent level we seen him play at in the NFL. Also want to see how Ellis produces at SAM, really not sold on him being the starter there when the season starts but will happily eat my words if he performs at a high level. Still believe Hill is destined for that spot, so will be interesting to watch if he gets some reps tonight.
Lastly, kickers. Oh the kicker situation, just praying somebody steps up and boots a 50 yarder or something to instill some confidence in the fanbase that we aren't going to be playing duck duck goose with kickers all year.
Other than those main areas of concern/intrigue, also excited to watch Golson under centre, and our first overall pick McGough getting the start at defensive end.
Best part is all of those comments pertain to an actual game we all get to watch. Football is back, how sweet it is.
