Oh brother!! 2 MORE YEARS OF GIBBS?

Although we've heard rumors that Redskins coach Joe Gibbs will pack it in after the 2006 season, a league source tells us that the Hall of Fame head coach is openly talking about plans for the 2007 season.

The source believes, based on Gibbs' comments, that the coach will stick around for at least two more years.

In 2004, Gibbs surprisingly emerged from retirement after more than a decade out of the game. At the time, there were rumors that Gibbs' wife nudged him back into coaching so that he could hire their son, Coy, as an assistant coach. Mrs. Gibbs, as we'd heard it, wanted to get Coy out from behind the wheel of the Busch car he had been racing as part of Gibbs' highly-successful NASCAR venture.

In Gibbs' second year back with the team that he led to three Super Bowl wins, the 'Skins qualified for the playoffs and won on the road at Tampa before losing at Seattle. Combining last year's success with a near-annual flood of big-name free agents and the hiring of offensive guru Al Saunders, the expectations for 2006 were sky high.

Like most Redskins teams over the past seven season that were saddled with high hopes, the 2006 version of the franchise has failed. But Gibbs apparently won't be slinking away with a potentially tarnished legacy; look for him to stick around for at least one more season, probably two.

Possibly, more.

What an idiot. He has a 5yr contract. Of course Gibbs will be back next year, AND the year after. He doesn't go down losing. If you don't like it, find another team to love.

Talking about Gibbs like that is like taking a dump in a Church.

Re: Oh brother!! 2 MORE YEARS OF GIBBS?

Re: Oh brother!! 2 MORE YEARS OF GIBBS?

when he said he'd be here 5 years, i expected 5 years. A GM and releasing excess staff may help, but i don't think gibb himself is the problem, since last year his offense maxed out the abilities of his players and the defense held its own... i really think saunders hiring has hurt more than helped so far and the FO (or whoever is in charge) has made many poor personnel decisions.

Re: Oh brother!! 2 MORE YEARS OF GIBBS?

Of course he's going to be here for the full 5 years. That's all he's said since he came back. It's these idiotic rumors from "league sources" that keep wanting him to step down early.

5 years with one coach? What a concept.

If Campbell comes in and looks promising, that could really energize him much like what Romo has done for Parcells.

Obivously Gibbs will be back, especially if Campbell shows some kinda life. Even if we end up 5-11, I personally feel he will come back.

Re: Oh brother!! 2 MORE YEARS OF GIBBS?

Why would anybody not want Gibbs to be back for another two years? Most of us at the beginning of his contract realized that it might take 5 years to get us back to where we need to be. Why can't people be patient anymore nowadays?

Exactly(that Guy.) WTF is this guy talking about? "Oh brother!!" Whattttt? Gibbs may never leave, and his soul will be in Ashburn, Landover and every where that great man has coached(DC wasn't his first gig newbies.) Gibbs had to sell his share in the Falcons to take the reigns back when Snyder begged him to come back. His wife, Pat, says she would rather he sleeps at Redskin park when we lose because he will not sleep. If there is
man who has ever given more of himself to this great American game we rejoice, cry, hug, dance, jump for, kiss our friend's dog(pepps/baron) other than JOE GIBBS, well then there is nobody else.
"Oh brother!! 2 more years of Gibbs?"
WTF? Go follow the Tuna around the country, leave us our roots and leave us be. Please.
We used to call stuff like that "pretendica", go pretend with one of your future 8 or so band wagon teams through the rest of you life. Hey, Chargers look good this year, go look there.

as always Hail

Probably wouldn't have hurt 3rd ID if he had mentioned in his initial post that his post was a straight "cut and paste" from profootballtalk.com

Where did you "hear" those rumors? From Sean Salisbury I bet. Gibbs quit after winning a SB and then went on to win Nascar Champs. Gibbs quit, LOL. I'd like to know your source on that?
