So what do you think is different that would cause Bob to sit tight when he felt an extension was necessary and appropriate two years ago?
The 2009 extension delivered a 6-10 season in 2010. In 2011 Phillips showed up and a ten win season was delivered. That is all we know at this point.
It's McNair's money with no bearing on the cap, but he certainly is in the driver's seat to wait. As someone vested since day one I do not want to witness a ten win season every ten or six years.
There is no need to extend at this point.
