Hey everyone, part of this adjustment to the game thread is so that I can interact more. Was on Phalanx, Twitter and three FB pages before. So I will constantly be reading now, if you have a question about anything that maybe you don't get in stadium or TV, Radio let me know throughout the game, please. BTW Joe, happy anniversary. So out of your league. :)

The forever question: Which team will the rain affect most? Or, will the rain be any factor?

About time. Great job by everyone on offense.

All of the backs could run that same play & situation and Collins' effort would be clearly different from the others'.
