Thanks.

My man Hodge will sign that deal, even if you did leave his ass out in the cold.









So I tried to offer your contract to Blocker, but since we locked in without signing him he was a free agent and signed in Orlando, bummer.

S11 - PRE-SEASON

1. What did you gather from your preseason games?

"I knew already but it was confirmed -- that we have a dynamic set of playmakers on both sides of the ball. However, that's not enough for success: we've got to tighten up some areas before we're going to be a truly, complete team. I thought for Tuilagi's first HIFL action, he competed and made some plays that show he's got the potential to be a rock star in this league. Martin Back and Adrian McCaffrey are unbelievable talents. The OL looks to be ahead of the curve. Defensively, we had some solid individual efforts with our LB core being the best in the HIFL, in my opinion. We have a couple young defensive backs that are only going to get better -- Logue and Cantrell really help lead us on the back end and are going to be indispensable as coaches on the field."

2. How much stock do you put into your teams preseason performance?

"We're not worried about wins and losses in the preseason -- it's about development. Are our young guys getting better? Are they learning from their mistakes? That's what's important. Getting guys accustomed to the speed of the game -- it' vastly different from college and other professional sports. It's a process, and I believe we have the right staff in place to help them adjust and adapt."

3. What is your primary and secondary goal this season, personally?

"Personally? It's getting back to the conference championship game. I won't lie to you and say it's been an easy offseason. When I took over St. Paul, we were officially in cap hell. I think we've successful navigated that and put together a team that has the potential to be dangerous. Secondly, we want protect our home field. We believe St. Paul has the greatest fans in the world ... and they deserve a show every time they purchase a ticket to one of our games."

4. Who impressed you the most on your own team in the pre-season?

"McCaffrey. No doubt about it. I've seen him from afar in my previous runs in the HIFL, but up close? He's on a different planet. I knew he had game changing speed but he's a guy that can churn out the tough yards -- the attitude runs that you want to see from your running back. He's a very big part of our plan here and we're looking forward to the type of season he's going to have."

5. With the start of the season finally here, what do you expect from your players in week one?

"Toughness. St. Paul isn't going to be a team that necessary runs by you -- we're going to run through you. I want to see the opposing team with their hands on their knees and sucking wind because we've run it down their throats. Toughness is the word we're going to embrace this season and if we truly buy in, it could be a special season in St. Paul."

I do not take the score against Tulsa very seriously.. We lost Fetu and Tuilagi early with injuries and kept them out to be ready for opening weekend.. We gave up some big plays, but I believe coach Ito will iron out those kinks.

I agree. Its a long season ... Im not interested in overreacting. Were playing a long game, not week to week. Are you still as high on Tuilagi as our QB as I am?

Yes, I am. I expect highs and lows this season, but I think he just needs to play and get HIFL experience good or bad.  If you're able to commit to this year as a learning year, it could pay off big for him, in my eyes.
