For all the grief that the national media gave Gibbs after trying to ice the Buffalo kicker twice, the media needs to point out the brilliance of this challenge. Retaining posession and punching it in for a TD pretty well clinched the game. Kudos to Gibbs for holding the team together through unbelievable adversity and coaching one of his finest games with everything on the line.

The Buffalo timeout snafu was overblown IMO. Their kicker would have nailed that 2nd kick from 55 as well as he hit that ball.

Great call for the GREAT COACH!

What a GREAT X-MAS gift from my beloved REDSKINS! ONE MORE TIME.....Before the dance starts!

IMO there is not a better coach in the entire league that we could have at the helm.

Instant Replay is still stupid because the trust is that a limited amount of camera angles can dispute an unlimited amount of visual angles from the field.

I mean, it's good when calls get blatently missed, but how often does that happen? For every blatent missed call that gets corrected, you have five Mike Sellers plays.

Very adamently, I say, instant replay must go.

gtripp, instant relay is here to stay. i think it was voted on to remain permanent at the last owners meetings. as for the challenge, one word. brilliant. i hope it comes out who made that call. and it was done very fast, too. does everyone here think that Santana Moss was in bounds? i say he dragged his back foot, making it a catch

As far as I can see, Joe Gibbs has totaly redeemed himself. Yeah the double time out was bad, but this is the most incredible turn around I have ever seen from the Redskins. When we lost to Buffalo for the first time I was wanting Joe to resign, now he is a GD genious in my mind.

Was that Moss catch not a catch? It looked like a catch to me. I know the skins didn't know immediately but it looked good...right?

It looked like it was going to get overturned, actually.

You said "oh snap Gibbs"? Hitting the holiday spirits a little hard last night, were you?

Superb challenge. I don't know where it came from, but someone made a great call.

Re: Did Gibbs 12-Man Challenge Make Up 4 The Timeout In Buffalo?

12 men on the field is one of the rare plays that can be challenged even if the officials didn't originally catch it.

In my local paper today, Gibbs was quoted as saying that "a bunch of guys in the booth" were saying that the Vikings had 12 men on the field, so the credit has to go to the staff in the booth for catching it. Gibbs doesn't have access to the equipment necessary to spot it himself.

So I would say that if anyone atoned for the blunder against Buffalo, it's the staff in the booth who didn't inform Gibbs of the double-timeout rule. They made up for that last night in a big way.

Re: Did Gibbs 12-Man Challenge Make Up 4 The Timeout In Buffalo?

Childress complained of having to be allowed to substitute players. Madden, I think, said as long as the offense substitutes a person then the Defense can sub in as well. During the quick snap/fumble/12-man-on-the-field play, did the Redskins sub in a player? I don't think so but I didn't record the game to check.

Re: Did Gibbs 12-Man Challenge Make Up 4 The Timeout In Buffalo?

I think both calls were not his initally. Obviously someone in the booth saw the 12th man and brought it to his attention. As far as the time out, I don't know for sure (and am sure you guys will let me know) but I can't believe Joe would make that kind of a mistake. He took the heat but just can't believe he would make that kind of a mistake.
I am with a previous poster...the Buffalo game is in the past. Last nights challenge took the wind out of the Vikings sails and locked up a game for the ages against the Cow-wussies.
