Fred Haynes over Mike Hillman, David Woodley over Steve Ensminger, Buddy Lee over Bert Jones, Bert Jones over Paul Lyons, Tomy Hodson over Mickey Guidry and Herb Tyler over Jamie Howard to mention a few.

So start Mettenberger.
That way when things start going wrong, the fans will be screaming for Jefferson and you will look right all along.
