    That would be a nightmare to try and figure out where it's coming from.

    I'll trust Kubes and Smith and Wade. Going into the draft, Mercilus was someone I had labelled as a potential bust. I've learned that I have to trust our front office, though. That's why I don't have their jobs.


    Watching the videos, Mercilus seems to be a very likable guy. I think he'll fit into the locker room very well. Wait till he gets a little Cushing mentality in him. Could be scary. I love our defense.:grin:

    Ha, my right index finger looks exactly like this. But mine was caused by a rabbit...not nearly as cool as a weightlifting accident.
