I know it .. That's why the sarcasm smiley. It's just there seemed to be a lot of "ONOZ" going on here before this. I admit I was content with the obvious step backward and let the kids work their way in after putting the initial pieces since this year's team overachieved in my view. Adding Mueller (if he stays healthy) gives us the depth to roll four very solid lines again.

BTW, someone on the main board asked a very good question: "Would we retain him as an RFA since he's only 24?"
