And to whet your appetite, here are some notes from Albert Breer to savor.

And this is Amari!

This also seems to be a very good sign.

Meanwhile, tonight is the first episode of Hard Knocks from the Cowboys training camp. It is a must see.

And even better, we’ll have a live stream on YouTube right after the show!
