Golden Nuggets: Leaders All Up In This [Site Decorum]

One thing that has struck me the most about the team following the loss to the New York Giants in the NFC Championship was the way they handled themselves. Some people accused Michael Crabtree of reverting back to "diva" mode, but other than that, we had some very tough guys saying some really inspiring things, and that makes me happy. This team came so far, so fast, and its coach did so much with so little (think offseason) that, near the end, it was like someone whose legs are moving faster than the rest of 'em. It's easy to look back and be discouraged, but just about every one of them has acted like an inspirational leader and I love that. I feel good about this team. Onto the linkage.
