Well I'm definately liking the "new" Jeff Gordon. He's really calmed down and has settled into just being an excellent driver rather than a darn good driver with some crazy scary moments.

Murph, what I mean by "scary moments" is this:
1994 - 2 wins
1995 - 7 wins
1996 - 10 wins
1997 - 10 wins
1998 - 13 wins
1999 - 7 wins
2000 - 3 wins
2001 - 6 wins
2002 - 3 wins
2003 - 1 wins

When they asked Jeff why he thinks his win's had decreased a bit, he gave credit to the other drivers, but he also said that as he's gotten older, he doesn't tend to drive on the ragged edge (sometimes dangerous edge) as often any more.

But he still probably has as many top 5-10 finishes as anyone in the sport right now. Which says he's still an awesome driver, but he might not be taking the same "chances" he took when he was younger.
