Gibbs looks angry during press conference

I haven't seen him look so pissed in a long time. He was saying that the team wasn't living up to Redskins football principles, i.e. not running effectively and allowing the other team to run on us. I think this will be the beginning of more changes. I think that he's been taking a back seat, allowing Saunders to run the offense, following bad advice from the front office about free agents. I am hoping that this is the beginning of more accountability from our players and coaches.

Yup, he was definately steamed. The defense was dreadful and we couldn't run the ball - those are the two key elements of any team, particularly one coached by Gibbs.

Re: Gibbs looks angry during press conference

I said it in another thread, I think he was calling out Saunders and GW a bit today. Anyone else get that feeling?

I noticed he was really pissed about the defense, but I didn't notice him mentioning the playcalling on offense. I might have missed it though.

I agee 100% you could hear the tone of his voice change when he talked about the defense.

Re: Gibbs looks angry during press conference

It's almost like he was saying "Ok Al, I made the change at QB you've got your guy now." Now he's turning his attention to Williams and saying "so what the hell is your issue?"

No he didn't mention it specifically, but he kept referring to the principles of Redskins football... running the ball and stopping the run.

Re: Gibbs looks angry during press conference

I for one am glad to see him show some anger. He didn't stand by his old b.s. rhetoric, "fighting guts out", etc. It was refreshing. Now that he doesn't have to defend Brunell, I think he's freed up to be more honest about the team.

Well, let's see...

--Thinking that Cornelius Griffin can anchor the line and stop the run all by himself for the third straight year without missing a beat?

--Relying on Joe Salave'a, a guy who was out of football for more than a year, who's had a history of injuries, who was probably best suited as rotation at best, but is now a full time defensive tackle?

--Keeping rejects and castoffs like Renaldo Wynn and Philip Daniels around because they're such great leaders?

--Hoping that 6th and 7th round picks like Cedric Golston and Montegomery can fill in and stuff the run when this front office hasn't had any success at drafting anybody who's been worth a damn in the 6th and 7th round?

How's that for starters? And I didn't even mention Arch, Rogers, Holdman, McIntosh and Andre Carter!

I'm happy about it too. Don't get me wrong, I love how loyal Gibbs is to his players, but I'm hoping his anger will light a fire under some asses. I just hope he doesn't get so frustrated that he entertains thoughts of retirement.

Re: Gibbs looks angry during press conference

It is funny how some of you guys can't get passed this thing with Joe Gibbs and Mark Brunell, but you can completely ignore the fact that the real reasons why we're losing games are the defense and the inconsistent playcalling from Al Saunders. I'll admit, I was very excited to see Al Saunders coming here, but this team wins with Joe Gibbs football, and they're not playing Joe Gibbs football.

A side note...I think Jason Campbell played more than well enough to have won us a ball game,but he has completely NO HELP from anybody else with the exception of Loyd, ARE, and Cooley.

Re: Gibbs looks angry during press conference

GW has always said his first priority is to stop the run, but we can't do that for some reason. I think the problem with the defense is that very few of those guys are hungry. We need a couple of UFA's to balance it out and get the energy up.

Gibbs should be pissed, most of those runs were straight ahead and those are "manhood" issues. I mean the Bucs had no running game for most of the year and they run on us like that? And with no running game we had to rely on Campbell a lot more, and he still produced.

Cooley, Ok. But Lloyd and ARE both dropped passes that would have been first downs. Lloyd's was especially costly.

Re: Gibbs looks angry during press conference

There was one pass thrown to Loyd that he caught and would have came down in bounce, however he was forced out and the refs called it an incomplete pass. I'm talking about the inconsistent running game and playcalling. It's almost as if they're just drawing plays out of a hat. I think we should've kept with Joe Gibbs offense from a year ago and just added the receivers.
