As I sit at work and wait for quiting time so I can race home, grab my son get him to his Uncles, so I can get down to the game and able to see kick off; I will be deep in thought as to what I really want to concentrate on tonight.
I enjoy the preseason because it is fun to sit and see if I can play coach and watching the different players to see what they can do. Usually I concentrate on Receivers and DB's. I like to see how crisp they run patterns and find the holes. Db's I want to see how tight there coverage is and how they pick up and break on the ball.
However tonight I think I might concentrate on the trenches. To see who is winning the big battles. Protection of Maas will be key this year as well as opening up some big holes. The Dline needs penetration and the Linebacking core will be watched most closely with their ability to stop the run. It will be a good test for the Big Guys tonight.
My Jersey is on and I am ready for the kick off to this long awaited season. Maybe I'll just sit back and enjoy the game and leave the coaching to the guys on the field!
God bless the CFL
