Well considering we're without Portis most of this season, Moss for about half, along with Springs and a TON of other key defenders...we can't possibly have THAT bad of injury luck again. Add in that Jason Campbell will have some good experience behind his cannon arm, we should be pretty good next year.

This season has been unreal with the key injuries we've had. The Skins have one of the best RB AND one of the best WRs in the NFL and have lost them both this year. NO team could survive that blow on offense and NO team could survive losing most of their secondary and D-Line at the same time.

Throw in the revolving door for kickers along with a change to a rookie QB and we're lucky to have as many wins as we do.

Next year will be better. It will be a good year.

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

One of my predictions for next season is this. Gibbs will grab the reins back on the team. To what degree I'm not sure. I personally would not be surprised to see him take back control of the offense and let Saunders go. That would be extreme, but it could happen.

Or perhaps he'll sit down with Saunders this offseason and work on coming up with an offensive identity that suits the 'Redskins principles' that he speaks of. Either way I believe we will see Gibbs more involved with the offense next year.

I do agree with the thought that there are too many chiefs and not enough indians on this coaching staff. Gibbs needs to get his hands dirty again and take back some control of the offense. To what degree he will do that is yet to be seen, but trust me, something will happen along the lines I've outlined above.

Hold on...no one was upset when he left to be with family, the problem was, he didn't spend time with his family. He was literally spending 18 hours a day in NASCAR. If you leave to "be with family" then be with family. He made that his excuse to follow a dream. So he lied. Hey I love the man as our coach, but he lied to leave the first time around, are we so short sighted to beleive he won't do it twice?

NO matter what though, I'm looking forward to more JOe Gibbs as head coach/team prez. What brought this on anyway, a reporter asking him at a presser?
Joe Gibbs liked to take a high draft pick then trade down for two picks, or more. We have not done this in a long long time.
We also need not forget, Gibbs has never coached / scouted talent in the salary cap era.

It is worthy to note, that I also beleive that Gibbs has a lifetime pass. I'd rather see us go 4-12 with Gibbs as our general than see us try, yet again, to get a coaching staff to "right the ship". I will be patient with Gibbs!

In Gibbs I trust!

(I just hope he doesn't lie and abandon us again.)

First of all, show me proof where he spent 18 hours a day in NASCAR. Secondly, who's to say his intentions were not to spend more time with his family? I mean geez, really, does the guy owe us an explanation? No, he doesn't.

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

Joe Gibbs had already created his racing team before he retired the first time around. His team was based in North Carolina, where he and his wife have their permanent home. His son J.D. in the early 90s was a pit crew member of Joe Gibbs Racing and his youngest son Coy was attending Stanford at the time. With the exception of Coy, the Gibbs family definitely spent more time together when he retired.

Moss hasn't been out that much. And of the 12 games we've played, Portis has started 7, and played in 8. His presence wasn't that big of a factor when he was playing. Springs being out hurt in the beginning, but at full strength we'd still be having problems on the D.

Also, not many teams can say they've had the kind of stability we've had at the O-line.

Blaming this season on injuries would be an incredible cop-out.

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

You can't blame only the injuries, but they were a factor. I don't think we ever played one game at full strength or anywhere near it. It seems like we were always missing key guys every week.

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

If this team stinks up pre-season again and goes 50%or under on wins next year will Gibbs still have a "pass" to coach the 5th season of his contract?

Looking at the Skins coaching moves last year, is the plan of Gibbs leaving this team after year 5 still make sense?

Based on those coaching moves would Gibbs have to be a GM to make this year coaching moves stable for the Skins in the year after Gibbs retires?

Lot of talk about the stability Gibbs brings, but is there stability once he leaves or moves out of the heading coaching job?

I agree that injuries are a reality in the NFL, not an excuse.

Yes, they have played a role, but in the end I think it has had little to do with the overall performance of the team this year.

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

Just checked NFL.com:

Along the D-line, Cornelius Griffin has played in 10 of 12 games, Salave'a in 9 of 12, and no time has been missed by the two starting D-ends, Daniels and Carter.

Other than Springs, the D has had virtually a clean bill of health.

And that's what's scary.

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

Except in some cases I think guys were playing when they shouldn't have been. Griffin and Salave'a have definitely played hurt when they probably should have been sitting, which was a detriment

Re: Gibbs will be back next year

Rogers missed a start and Vincent has been out lately. Prioleau was done from the start. Daniels always seems to be nursing a bad back. Griffin hasn't been as effective this year as in the past. Marshall seems to be hampered by his shoulder. Big Joe has simply lost his job anyway to Golston.

Injuries happen to every team and it certainly doesn't full excuse their piss poor performances this year. But they have been a factor to some degree.
