So what are you saying? Brunell prayed with Gibbs more times than Ramsey did? And this is why Gibbs picked Brunell?

Re: Whats On Gibbs Clipboard?

Thanks for posting that article Tafkas. I hadn't seen it.

The argument about players getting special treatment from Gibbs because of their faith is stupid, tired and old. Again, this would not be an issue if we were winning.

The whole team has played badly this season, saints and sinners alike.

No. I'm saying because Gibbs prayed with MB he was not able to bench him when he should have. Its like in any job, the guys that play golf & cards with the boss are not usually the ones that get laid off.

Don't bother. He's already said he's not going to change his mind. Let him be happy believing Gibbs makes critical team decisions based on religion.

But he prayed with Ramsey too. He's probably prayed with a lot of players.

(I don't even know why I'm being sucked into this debate.)

True....by the way, usual prayer session for all the mods tonight? I mean after all, that is how we were selected

That's right! Though I think Crisp is on the rocks, he hasn't been praying hard enough lately.

Re: Whats On Gibbs Clipboard?

I think we can all agree that Gibbs wanted very badly for Brunell to work out, and he stuck with MB too long. However, I wouldn't pin it all on a common savior. Gibbs loves vets, he brought in MB, and MB did what was (minimally) necessary to get us into the playoffs last year. He should have pulled the plug on MB in the Indy game, but at least he figured it out this year.

Yeah, because we NEED guys like Koren Robinson, Chris Henry, Terrell Owens and Lawrence Phillips on our team.

He picks guys who work hard, stay out of trouble and commit themselves to team-play rather than individual stats...that's why Lavar was sent packing.

Gibbs has loyalties, though - don't underestimate that. That can be a strength or a weakness.

I'd take Chris Henry as long as you have some strong vets in the locker room. He sure is a hell of a lot better than Brandon LLoyd.

Re: Whats On Gibbs Clipboard?

Are you guys serious? Joe Gibbs is a man of faith, and that's one of the biggest reasons why I have so much respect for the man, well that and those three Super Bowl trophies. I think Coach Gibb's faith gives him better perspective on running this football team, and he knows life is more important than just football. If there was a Coach of the Year award for just common decency and generosity Coach Gibbs would win hands down! Speaking of loyalty, I guess if he didn't have any loyalty he would have never come back to the mess that Synder and the boys have made here, he would have gone somewhere where they knew how to run a football team. It says a lot about the man's character that he decided to come back only with the Redskins!

Re: Whats On Gibbs Clipboard?

That IS hilarious!

As for Gibbs: Irish does have a point ... like he said, people who are "friends" with the boss have a little more job security -- I don't think religion is the key though. I think ODS said it best, "Gibbs has loyalties..."
