Regardless of how you feel about JH, ASmith, or CK, it has been immensely impressive to me how the players have handled the quarterback transition. The players have not only been tactful, even when they have spoken honestly about their feelings (a la Staley today) they have been very direct without being devisive and controversial.
For example, it would have been very easy for someone frustrated with the conservative play to make a crack about it, or take a swipe at ASmith. But everyone has been very diplomatic.
I'm not sure there is another team that could have handled it so well.
