That is a travesty to have Gibbs on a list that includes Randy Moss, Albert Haynesworth and Matt Millen. What a joke.

That's the ultra-fickle media for you. Your best friend one minute, your worst enemy the next. You would think last years' playoff run would have quieted some of this washed up, the game has passed him by talk.

I don't think that Gibbs should be on the same list as some of those guys but I do think that there is a kernel of truth in the sentiment. He has been a stellar coach and superb leader of the team over his distinguished career. However, if you look at things dispassionately then perhaps a move to the front office would be no bad thing. He is an offensive genius who doesn't call the offensive plays and he seems unable to generate any kind of chemsitry within the team. He's not getting any younger and we know that he is the type of guy who lives and breathes the game 24/7. Is he capable of that same intensity now?

Does anyone here really believe that Gibbs is going to win another superbowl with the Redskins?

Not as a coach but I do believe he will as a front office person.

If SI thinks Gibbs has "worn out his welcome," they are just plain dumb. While the treads might be a little worn, I don't see a coup led by fans or players to overthrow Gibbs.

They should be citing Parcells as there seem to be a LOT of Dallas fans who question his playcalling and W-L production. I know a few Cowboys fans and virtually all of them say they would have liked to have seen Sean Payton become their HC.

He's basically a front office person right now as it is. As of right now, he seems like a motivator he keeps the troops going. He might have a final say on plays, etc, but I have a feeling Saunders and GW pretty much run the show.

Gibbs built this franchise, and now he's not welcome?????? That's like saying lumbardi wouldnt be welcome in Green Bay. Media is so moment to moment, hilarious.

Re: 10 Guys Who Have Worn Out Their Welcome (from cnnsi.com)

Only about half of all Head Coaches call plays. A few years back barely any head coaches called plays. That's supposed to be what coordinators do. As fast paced as games move, how can a person be expected to manage the whole game all the while coming up with the next play within 5 seconds. I like the setup.

This season has been a disappointment so far but other factors have contributed heavily. Portis health and Brunell's decline have been the biggest factors. The poor defensive play was unexpected.
This is the 2006 NFL though, teams go up and down every year. Look at the Bucs and Panthers, like us good team last year that have struggled this year.

I wouldn't be too quick to buy into the Gibbs has failed argument, one year from now they could be calling him a genius again!

Do you think that he was the one who picked our defensive busts? Aside from Brunell, he's been on with offensive additions.

Given what happened last year, regardless of if his name is Gibbs or not I wouldn't want him fired at the end of this year. If next year is another disaster then I would have some serious issues.
