Gibbs 09-18-2006

Did anyone see the press conference today. If so what did he talk about.

Re: Gibbs 09-18-2006

-Hard working group of guys, we play physical

-Inconsistent, penalties hurt us a lot

-Off a play here a play there, a person here a person there

-Not converting 3rd downs, limiting our opportunities to continue drives and create more plays

-Mark got knocked around a lot

-Made a bad decision in the red area (just one?)

-Avg. 4.7 yards per rush, but not happy with the running game (helped by a reverse)

-Concerned about pass protection, 6 sacks allowed

-In general, felt they did a good job on kickoffs. Hall handled the kickoffs (I didn't even notice)

-Don't get a better play than what Rock made, don't know if anybody means more to the football team than Rock Cartwright. Example of a real Redskin (interesting comment)

-A bunch of guys made great plays on that return-Demetrick, Kedrick, Chris Cooley

-Need more guys around the ball on kickoff coverage though

-Will be turning in one of the special teams penalties for review

-Four 3 and outs defensively in second half, happy with the physicality and hustle of the defense

-Problem was penalties. Seven penalties.

-Need to be more effective in pass protection and rushing the football

-Clinton wants to play every week, and he's a joker so he'll try to joke around with the media. But Gibbs and Clinton speak every day and there's no miscommunication between the two

-No word on whether he'll play against Houston

-Springs is day-to-day

-Mark has been like the offense in general, inconsistent

-You can probably find a play to show MB threw it away too quick, but it's not a theme

-Would he approach preseason next year the same way he approached it this year? Probably not

-To be quite truthful, bitterly disappointed they went 0-4 in the preseason

-Ultimate responsibility for what is going on is Gibbs' (the sacrificial scapegoat)

Re: Gibbs 09-18-2006

Standard Gibbs presser. Not going to talk bad about his team; going to put the blame on his shoulders. Gibbs is the ultimate motivator, I just hope he can do it this week!

Re: Gibbs 09-18-2006

I watched it for about 3 minutes and had to turn it off out of frustration. I know Gibbs wants everyone to chill out and all, but when he was talking about how we converted a bunch of nice first downs late in the game (as in, during garbage time) I had to shut it down. I hate to say it, but those end of the game stats are something that Spurrier would be proud of.

Re: Gibbs 09-18-2006

He's goosing the team like he did last year when we were 5-6. These guys have responded to positive reinforcement before so that's where he is living. I like that he directly addressed a few things that have been sorta floating around out there(Portis/Gibbs communication,pass protection)

I think he was talking exclusively about defensive penalties there

Re: Gibbs 09-18-2006

Gibbs should release the same press conference every week. He keeps his cards close to his vest and won't say anything that's not expected. He takes the blame for a loss / bad plays, he gives praise for a win / good plays to players. Always says at least one person "Fought their guts out" etc. It's his thing, it's worked in the past.

Re: Gibbs 09-18-2006

I like that ever since someone leaked that we were gonna draft Campbell, we don't hear much real news from the press until Skins staff releases it. Gibbs is keeping things in house & that's why is pressers are non events. Hopefully CP won't say too much.

No Gibbs works behind the seen as in other teams air their stuff out in the media. What do you want him to point out guys so the media can then run over to them and ask them about how Gibbs is pointing them out. Then things just go back and forth in the media as they look for any story they can make up.

"A play" my ass! I could point at least six in the last two weeks. And I guess skipping it at the feet of open receivers doesn't qualify as a bad play in Coach Gibbs' mind...

Not sure what you're expecting him to say. He's not going to call anybody out. Just not his style.

The fact that he even acknowledged it tells me he's aware that Brunell's play is an issue.
