Oh no doubt.
I was just wondering if there were any rumors floating around about whether it would be another 3-yr deal? Longer?

I don't know if you guys saw this quote on HT.com when the media types asked R.S. if he thought this was now "his team"....

(on if he feels like this is his team that he constructed) I think its our team. And I understand the spirit behind the question, but this is not my team. I think we do a collaborative effort. We use a lot of information from a lot of sources and a lot of opinions. But I do feel like were a better football team. I think we have worked here to improve the talent of the team and the coaching staff is working extremely hard, so I feel like weve gotten better.
I could be "projecting", but that sounds like code for "I've finally cleaned up the mess the last guy left and ran most of the riff-raff out of town... Now just wait till I have some real Cap room!"

but, like I said, I'm probably "projecting" what I'd have said, had they asked me.
