what will be will be.
I see it as "I am busting my tail off at the DC position so that I might get a HC job again in the future" basically no different than if TJ Yates said that he is working hard and wanting to be a starting QB in the league.
with that said, I hope we are grooming a replacement and if so, who would you think would be able to fill those shoes, if we were to go in house
just for conversation sake
BTW I agree with Sandy ..Feb would be a better time to worry
