My goal is to always get this published by Friday editions — before games kick off. However, this week, space constraints made me hold the inaugural 2013 Gridiron Notes Column until today's edition.At times, it will mention — like today's column — some highlights from last week.It will also have a Offensive and a Defensive Player of the Week, list all 100-yard rushers, passers and receivers, all those who scored 12 points or more and the Defensive Honor Roll from last week's games.
