BEAR DOWN, WCG! We’ve gotta big preseason game coming up this Saturday on the West Coast as we take on the San Diego Chargers. This should be a lot of fun.
Seriously, this is a big game for us. You know, after getting the rust out of our systems and going against our own teammates for two weeks, we’ll really get to see how much we’ve developed now that we’ll be squaring off against another team. Sure, I know we’re doing well, because I get to see our performances every day at practice, but to see how our offense and defense looks in a real game is whole ‘nother thing. Also , we’ll get to actually do some live tackling, which is something you know I’M looking forward to.
Another reason this is a big deal for us is because our coaches will be able to evaluate all the younger guys, which is pretty much what the preseason is all about. They’ll get out there, get it done, and prove their value to the team. And anything they do that needs to be improved will be captured on film and reviewed with them next week so they can get even better than they already are. As far as myself and the other vets go, we’ll be getting out there to refresh ourselves with our game, get back into our good habits, and return our moods to that football mode we love so much.
I’m also looking forward to a few off-the-field activities. What they’ll be, I dunno yet. But because I’ve got some family out there, as well as one of my best friends, Nathan Vasher (old teammate of mine), I’m sure some other extracurricular activities will go down.
