Ted Thompson spoke to the press today in a conference regarding the final preseason game and the impending roster cuts.Thompson expressed a good deal of empathy for guys who "have done a good job but will not make it past this weekend".

Shortly before the game, thunderstorms circled the area threatening to end our chances of seeing any football at all. But by game-time things had gotten a whole lot better...no thunder, no lightning...just torrential rain.
