Yeah, you might have been right about that but consider the situation. Compared to the 2002 line they looked like the return of Mathews, Munchak, and Dino to most of us.
If we added a year of experience for Pitts and McKinney (who was new to playing center), and brought in Weigert, Washington, and Randall and got that much improvement then if Randall is as bad as it appears Wade should have a big impact for us. That's nice to think of. Wonder if the plus we get from Wade on the right will be offset by the negative side of starting Wand on the left (at first at least).
