“Going into week three, next week is game week, the countdown is on,” Smith said. “I know our guys realize that. We have an idea now of who we’re going with at just about all positions really. Guys have competed hard throughout. We remain injury free for the most part so you have to like that. But still a lot of work to do but I think we’re working with the right guys now.”
