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.

Considering the '03 & '04 Drafts were an abomination orchestrated by C&C, I would say that is a pretty accurate evaluation.

I like his dedication, his demeanor, his approach to the draft and free agency, and how well it seems him and Kubiak work in tandem to build this organization from the ground up. Seems like one of those guys that when he gets this team built up to where it needs to be he has the forethought to make solid decisions down the road.

Another thing I'd like to get him signed long term is if you look at winning teams in the NFL usually you have ownership and front office stability.
Golden I'm down with you on that. I think the guy has shown enuff already and we shouldn't wait. Nitro I understand what you are saying to but sometimes you just get a feeling.
