Going from right to left - Denver Post - Patrick Saunders
Sunday, June 13, 2004 - Matt Lepsis used to waltz. Now he must learn to tango. It's not easy to change steps in mid-career, but after five years as the Broncos' starting right tackle, Lepsis is learning to dance to the left.

Salary cap: Why the NFL system works - Daily Camera - Ryan Thorburn
June 13, 2004 - The salary cap seems so simple. Each of the NFL's 32 teams can spend X amount ($80.582 million for 2004) per season on player salaries. Which means there are no haves (see Yankees, New York) or have-nots (see Penguins, Pittsburgh) like in other major professional sports leagues. The franchises that spend X amount the wisest, assuming they are also draft savvy and blessed with good fortune relative to injuries, should have a chance to win a Super Bowl.

The Thunder matched the league mark for best record, finishing 10-1.
