Is it Friday yet?
LTL, did you happen to hear Hitchcock this afternoon? What'd he have to say for himself?

Yeah I caught most of it.. essentially it was that he wants to put these players in a position to succeed... He wants to protect them against guys like Thornton, Getzlaf, etc.

We'll see how it plays out but I don't expect them to last down there for long. They are just to good and our offense doesn't have enough pop without them.
