To McCaffrey the extension would mean a lot. As he sits in his den watching Lisa entertain their sons, Denver's most famous mustard salesman turns serious. "After you've been on the verge of being out of the league, you never forget where you came from," he says. "All this attention makes me uncomfortable, because so much of what I've accomplished is due to this system, Coach Shanahan and my teammates. Not only do they do their jobs unselfishly, but the feeling of camaraderie is so special."
McCaffrey is touched when the teammates who tease him so much praise his ability. He practically chokes up when discussing Sharpe's comment about the $3.5 million, until Lisa restores order. "I knew I should have married [Seahawks wideout] Joey Galloway," she says, grinning. "I'd be rich. He's probably a hell of a lot faster than you, too."
