Thank you to Joe Gibbs
 
He may never see this thread but I just wanted to send out my own personal thanks to Coach Gibbs and give everyone here the chance to do the same.

Thank you for coming back and attempting to restore some order to a franchise that was in disarray since you left in '92. Thank you for guiding the team through one of it's darkest hours during the tragic death of Sean Taylor. And thank you for giving us one last ride with a true coaching legend. Even though you were unable to bring another Super Bowl title back to D.C., your efforts are appreciated and the franchise appears to be on much more solid ground today than it was 4 years ago.

Thank you for being a true Washington Redskin. You will forever be [I][U]the[/U][/I] coach of the Washington Redskins.

I don't think I can say it better than Matty. Gibbs, you are the Washington Redskins. You're the main reason why I became a Redskins fan in the first place. You will be missed!

Well said, Matty. It has been a nostalgic feel these last four years, and I'm truly grateful and blessed to have watched this coaching legend on the sideline once again for these last four seasons. Coach Gibbs has restored this franchise back to respectibility, and his final season will rank up there with his greatest coaching jobs.

Coach will truly be missed and I hope he continues to have success with his endeavors in NASCAR as well as his consulting role with the team. You won't find a better coach or man, for that matter, than Joe Gibbs. Thanks for the memories Joe!!!!

Thank you coach Gibbs. You are the reason I became a fan in the 80s and the reason I will forever be a Washington Redskins fan. Through the good and the bad, we've stuck this thing out together. I'm so proud to say that I'm a Redskins fan.

Sir, you personify integrity, character, and leadership. A very rare combination in today's world of professional sports. l also wanted to thank you for drafting Sean Taylor and the way you handled his untimely passing. It was great having such a shining star wear burgundy and gold during his career. Like yourself, Sean will forever be a Redskin. Thanks.

Mr. Gibbs, you leave behind with your legacy intact, but more importantly a team of great guys that will never, ever forget the impression you left on their collective lives. Thanks for everything you've done for this great city of Washington D.C. Mayor Fenty should figure out a way to do something very nice to honour you.

I echo these sentiments exactly. I love the man. He's a great role model not only for sports but for life.

I gotta say though, I'm pretty annoyed today. He stirred up a QB controversy yesterday then unexpectedly quit today after repeatedly telling everyone he intended to honor the full terms of his contract. I'll get over it, but I'm a little pissed right now.
