I agree that how good a guy looks in shorts means nothing. But the fact that he learned from last year's mistake of not showing up in shape, and that he is working on holding the ball and delivering hits instead of absorbing them, tells me that Mathews is dedicated. That couldn't be said last year. Have to wait and see as always, but as L said with a real fullback back there now I'm liking how our running game is looking so far. I'm not crowning them yet, but I think we'll be able to get leads with our passing game, and be able to run out the clock a lot better this year. The defense will be a work in progress as always with all the young guys, but i'm more optimistic this year than in the past. I think we'll do a lot better than everyone is projecting, including people on this site.
