Thoughts: I don't mind saying I'm a little envious of Mike's black #18 jersey this season. Yes, Titus represented it well the last few years, and we'll always have Art, but Christian....well he may be one of the best players we've had in quite some time. If you remember from last year, Gerald is a transfer from the losing Sugar Bowl team (he transferred before that loss, like some kind of Nostradamus). He sat out last season, learned the playbook, benched pressed cars, ripped phone books in half, and did pretty much anything else a 6' 3" 242lb man wants to do. He has the raw talent to be a very good tight end, he just needs a little polishing from Watson and Coach Moore to become a great tight end. I see a big season for Christian as he becomes a large target for Teddy and a troublesome matchup for opposing defenses.

While the black 18 will always be special to Mike, and this site, for those who followed the Countdown last year know it's also important to me as well. Last year Day 18 was August 15th the day my little girl was born. I know I'm a day early but I remember typing the Titus Teague profile in hospital last year. Dedication people! Also, I'll go ahead and take 100% of the credit for the Year of the Cardinal at this point. She's a big fan...but lets be honest, she's had it pretty easy the last 365 days.

I thought at one point in my life I had "seen it all". And then a quick Google search promptly put me in my place....
