The good news here is that this game will be indoors. There will be no monsoon, so we should get some answers on what this team is actually going to look like. Ken Whisenhunt said this week that he expects the starters to play the first quarter.
Obviously all eyes will be on Jake Locker, but I will be watching Justin Hunter. There has been so much chatter about him this offseason, and there was the whole JAG thing this week. I want to see how Hunter responds to that.
I also want to see the defense actually tackle the guy with the ball. They really struggled with that in the opener. Some of that was due to the weather, but that doesn't excuse the whole thing.
What will you be looking for?
