Good work, the stats are interesting. They don't give us the whole picture however, if Printers is healthy the whole game that may work in their favour. However the two times we beat them we did not have our top quarterback in the game. Like I said earlier this is gonna be a real good one and everyone that can, should come out to support the cats they have worked very hard this yr. to turn this team around.
